Some organisations using our Online School work with young learners where the parents are the account owners but may have multiple kids enrolled as users in the platform.
This raises a small issue because our system requires a unique email address and username (that's like your key into the system) but the parent may only have one email.
Three simple solutions:
Ask if the parent has another email address they can use for the second child
Most email providers allow catchall emails.
If the user is using Gmail or Hotmail/Outlook, they can use the following format to create a "new/different" email but the emails will go to the same inbox.
The LearnCube Online School will show an error if a user tries to select the same email for both student accounts.
The solution is to use catchall email addresses. This involves using your email address and adding a '+' afterwards with additional text.
For example, Sarah uses the email firstname.lastname@example.org and is a mother of two children: Jane and Robert. She could simply change her email address as below and she'd still receive email messages as normal:
That way email notifications will still go to the desired email address.
