Hi Jan,
This is for TLPs only for the time being - adding podlings is a bit of a 
mess due to how we have multiple naming conventions for that data and 
the fact that IPMC members would be shown all 36 podlings whenever they 
accessed the system ;)

But a workaround is in the works :)

With regards,
