Linking DNA test to person in family tree

I know the DNA feature is Beta, but I cannot see how to link my families DNA tests to their positions in my family tree.
I was only offered to submit this information for the most recent kit. I have looked both under Manage your DNA data for this option, and on individuals in my family tree. Can anyone advise if this can be done for kits uploaded prior to Geneanet offering the question? It may be just that I have to wait due to the Beta aspect. Uploading kits again does offer to link to Family Tree but has removed the 'Display Name' option. Whilst living people in my tree are private, I still want to display a name other than 'X X'. Thanks!

You are asked to link the DNA data to one person in your family tree when uploading the data. It can't be done/changed when the data has already been uploaded. Go to https://en.geneanet.org/dna/management/, remove the kit and start again.

Thanks, but it didn't. Please note the second part of my comment on trying to reupload, where the option did appear...

I've deleted all my kits in the meantime.

Also, there should be an option to add/amend later on? What if you wanted to upload an updated Gedcom? What would happen then?

This is a beta version of Geneanet DNA so some new options will be added progressively.

You can't link a DNA data file to a private person in your family tree.

If you upload an updated GEDCOM file and if the person is still in the updated family tree, the link will not be affected.

This should be considered. Ancestry DNA, Family Tree DNA and MyHeritage DNA allow this. People are interested in the ancestors of the matches...

I'll make the suggestion to the technicians.
