Team Membership 

If you come across team members that should be added to the team membership list, and you have "Edit" permissions, you can "Add" those team members yourself. If you search for a name and the name doesn't come up, it is possible that the person doesn't have a Contact Type of eLINK user. This would require an eLINK support ticket or an email to elinksupport@state.mn.us requesting to add the contact type of eLINK user to the user's record.



Reports & Attachments

Financial Reports are no longer required, and therefore not available in the user interface. The financial report has been replaced by a checkbox attesting to the accuracy of the reporting information in the Progress Report screen.

Expenditure Report data is separated into two tabs: Summary and Expenditures. This allows the expenditures to be more easily filtered or sorted.

If you need to delete an attachment please reach out to your Board Conservationist for assistance.
