The Kit Authorization page is where you may add those kits that you personally manage to your project administrator profile. This allows you to access them through the GAP with the same security settings as when you access them by signing in directly.
When you enter a kit’s number and password, the authorization will be added to a table on this page. It is also added to the Project Administrators with Full Access table on the My Account – Project Administrator Settings page of the kit owners myFTDNA account.
To set up Full Access:
- If you have been authorized by a project member to have full access to his/her kit number, enter their kit number and password, then click the Submit button.
- If you have been authorized by a project member to have full access but do not know the password and your email address is the primary email address on the kit’s account, you may request the password and it will be sent to your email on the Forgot Your Password page.
- If your email address is not the primary email address on the account, you must contact the person who the kit belongs to and get the password from them.
Note that Full Access is revoked when a customer changes their password. When the password for a kit is changed, you will need to re-authorize access.
As a group project administrator, how do I grant myself full access through the GAP to a kit that I manage?
- Enter the kit number and passwords in the respective fields.
- Click the Submit button.
After adding one or more kits, a table below the Add form will display the kits you have added and provide the option to remove kits.
Note: Full access is granted only as long as the kit owner does not change their password. If they change their password, they will need to give it to you and you will need to repeat the steps above.
