Parents with Shared Email Addresses

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. Scoutbook requires a unique email address per user. Many email systems like Gmail use a (+) email scheme to allow for multiple email addresses within the same account.

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.

Another option is using the SMS email address for parent’s mobile phone.
