Hi,

Is there a resolution to the issue of serveral club members sharing the same e-mail address, I'm trying to add members from the same family but it says 'email address already in use'.

Regards,

Unfortunately the email has been set up to be a unique email address so each family member does need to have their own address

Unfortunately, that doesn't work very well as we have a lot of juniors and we prefer to contact them via their parents until they are over 14s, and some parents want us to use only their email.

What can I do?

After some hard thinking we think that we have now found a way that we can resolve this issue and will be working on a solution for junior members to share an email address with parents/guardians as required aiming to roll out in next upgrade

Sarah, do you know when this is likely to be released? I've had problems with the workaround not working will all email providers.

This will be part of the upgrade end of February so not too long now :)
