It's not finished.

When it is, each Group Admin and Co-Admin will receive a registration link and instructions on how to use the new "Project Administrator Dashboard", as it is being called.

Things are a mess right now, that's for sure, but I'm hoping it will look good in the end. I've got to say, I sure don't like the way the Y-DNA Results page is looking so far. Hopefully, they'll get it straightened out.

Hopefully this is a default view, FTDNA did say it was going to be much more configurable.

To be honest my major grump (apart from the Most Distant Ancestor missing) was the inability to copy information out of it, but I've since noticed a button to download a spreadsheet. This is not as easy as copy and past, but is certainly not an intolerable inconvenience.

It appears that the name information is now gone.

Yes. I'm not liking it so far, but I understand it won't actually be finished for a few days yet.

They have not yet sent the registration links out to the project admins, so it is not up for tinkering yet.

Lots of vitriol about the new system on Genealogy-DNA mailing list, but it does look like most of the problems people are complaining about are surmountable if you know how, the L21 Plus project page being a good example.

However for myself this is a mute point being only a lowly co-administrator, it would appear the main admin of our project has fallen asleep, leaving the project somewhat rudderless with nobody able to access the controls.

Thanks for the compliment on the R-L21 Plus Project. I seem to be getting the hang of it there. It has been less manageable over on the R-P312 and Subclades Project for some reason. I keep putting the groups in the right order, for example, but they don't show up that way on the Y-DNA Results page or stay that way on my Dashboard. Yet I did the same thing over on the R-L21 Plus Project, and it worked like a champ.

Okay, I just fixed that. Now the groups are showing up on the R-P312 and Subclades Project in the right order.
