Add Alternate Email Address for Adult Profiles

Can you enhance the Adult profile so that a parent could add an alternate adult email address? Sometimes one parent has a SB account profile and adding the 2nd/alternate email address would enable the other parent to receive emails/notifications from SB as well?

why not add the other parent as a scout connection?


I can see other use cases for having multiple email addresses (at least in principle), but for the use case you described @HaroldRice, I think @DonovanMcNeil hit the nail on the head. Having the other parent with their own account means that they can access all of the Scoutbook features (such a linking to the calendar), not just get emails.

Also, since Scoutbook currently works on the idea of unique email addresses for each account, I have a feeling that supporting more than one address for any given account would be liable to generate creeping bugs.

In some cases the other parent doesnt want a SB account but does want to be notified of events etc.

They don’t ever have to login to receive emails

Also, it’s trivial with most mail accounts to automatically forward certain emails to another account upon receipt.

“I do not want an account” But “I want the information”. OK?


@HaroldRice - I do not understand the want or need or in this case the lack of a want and need. You can add the parents and they never accept andog in but would still receive emails and reminders.
