How do I Participate in Get Involved?
On the computer: Go to https://www.familysearch.org/getinvolved/ or in the FamilySearch menu bar, click Get Involved.
Note: Indexing is part of the Get Involved efforts and can be found by clicking on Get Involved.
You can also download the Get Involved app from the Google Play Store and the App Store. From there, select projects that interest you. Return as often as you want and continue work on Your Opportunities or find new opportunities.

Get Involved is turned on everywhere now. To find it, go to http://www.familysearch.org/getinvolved or just click on Get Involved in the header.
FYI: @jannadarrington1, in case you want to update your original post.3
That's changed within the last hour.3
Where can I see the project instructions under Get Involved? If I go to Find a Project, I only have the option to select and start indexing a project, but I'm no longer able to see the project instructions for the available projects.0
I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
Just in passing ...
I am assuming, that you are an "Employee", of 'FamilySearch'.
[ At least, I hope that you are ... ]
I TRULY hope, that LABEL of "Get Involved", WILL revert SIMPLY back, to the LABLEL of "Indexing", ASAP.
[ I suppose, after, "RootsTech 2022" ... ]
I really hope, that such "Change", was just some peoples, thought processing and decision making, just for "RootsTech 2022"; and, NOT; as, a PERMANENT "Change".
MANY; Many; many, of us, are so tired, of "Change", just for the sake of "Change" ...
There is NO "Valid" Reason, to have "Changed" the LABEL, of "Indexing", to "Get Involved".
Such "Change" was TOTALLY "Unnecessary".
PLEASE; Please; please ...
"Changed" the LABEL, of "Get Involved", BACK to "Indexing", ASAP.
"Change", just for the sake of "Change", is NOT necessary.
Humbly submitted for your IMMEDIATE, information; attention; and, consideration.
'Thank You' in advance.
Your cooperation, would be greatly appreciated.
MAY THE LORD BLESS YOU IN THIS IMPORTANT WORK
I agree with Brett.
We meet as a group from the stake every week just to index (I might be young but most are older). As the coordinator of this meeting, I noticed one of the regulars get up to leave after only being around for 15 minutes. She told me she was leaving out of frustration because she could index anymore! She didn’t know, nor did anyone, that indexing was under “Get Involved”.
PLEASE change this back or add indexing back as a main menu option. This change is a MAJOR hinderance to the older generation - the ones most involved in this work. They don’t handle unexpected change well!3
@KamillaKovacs3 if you are in the mobile app, there's an "i" in a circle in the upper right to click on for some instructions. They will be adding more. They will also soon be adding the instructions to the web app as well.5
I love the new Get Involved. It shows me and others the opportunities. The changes in FS are confusing at first, but I do appreciate the Get Involved. And My Opportunities.
