On this page it states that if you make a teacher account: Your GLOBE Teacher account allows you access to all GLOBE protocols, the ability to report data to GLOBE scientists. However, if I understand well, this is not true, because you can only add data if you’re a trained teacher.

This is probably also why, if I login using my test account matbeg@gmail.com and want to enter data, i get a broken link. Could this be resolved by a page that tells you that you cannot enter data because you are not a trained teacher, with links to training possibilities?

An issue is that this is not your valid email address for your account.

Hi Matthijs,

This has been addressed by adding a special page that Account Requested and Interested Public users will now see when they click on the Enter Data button. If you want to test it, you'll need to create a new test account that doesn't already have a MyPage associated with it. It won't work with your current test account, even if you change the User Groups - the Enter Data button will take you to your Data Entry tab.

Thanks for your help!
Liz
