Parents with Shared Email Addresses (SB)

Q. I’m trying to add a second parent to a scout. They have a family email, so I get a warning that there is already someone with that email connected to the scout. What can I do?

A. SB requires unique emails – many email systems like Gmail use a (+) email scheme

Example email1@gmail.com – if I enter email email1+me@gmail.com – it is a new email address but lands at the same address. That is one option

The other option is using the SMS email address for the parents Cell phone.
