Both of this scout parents use the same email address. But I can’t seem to enter both with the same email?
Scoutbook requires unique e-mail addresses for each account. If the parents are using gmail, you can make Scoutbook think the addresses are unique by adding +anything before the @. Scoutbook treats firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com as unique but gmail treats them as the same address.
That worked thanks, appreciate the quick response
Pro-Tip: GMail ignores anything in the name part of an email that comes after a “+”. So if they’re using GMail, they can set up Scoutbook with firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and both addresses will go to the same firstname.lastname@example.org account, but Scoutbook considers them unique emails.
EDIT: Corrected details. Hat tip to @jacobfetzer
@SteveCagigas I don’t think that’s correct. It ignores everything to the right of a “+”. If also ignores the “.” Itself, but it doesn’t ignore everything to the right of the “.”
Gotcha. Will correct my post. Thanks for double-checking me.
