FAQ: Projects

Q: Is the project designation at the animal or cage level,  and how does that work when moving animals between cages during matings?

A: Projects are at the cage level. After the animal is transferred, the system will update the project and ownership of the animal based on the target cage.

Before:
Animal
- Owned by User A
- Belongs to Project A
- Lives in Cage A

After transferred to Cage B (which is owned by User B and belongs to project B):
Animal
- Owned by User B
- Belongs to Project B
- Lives in Cage B

Q: Can animals belong to more than one project?

A: No. Animals may belong to only one project at a time, but they can be transferred to different projects.
