Unique Email Problem

Hi there

It seems that even with using User ID and not email to log in, I still cannot create two users with the same email address.  This presents a problem, as often people share a common email address but would prefer individual user accounts.

Can I do anything about this?

Re: Unique Email Problem


Sorry but emails do need to be unique. You could change back to using email for login at any time and there would be duplicates if I allowed this.

2 users sharing the same email but different logins is just not a use case that makes sense to me. If they share the same email they can share the same login.

Re: Unique Email Problem

I know this is old, but I struggle with a lot of the same issues around this.


The use case is this:

- An Secretary/Office Manager monitors and responds to all emails that come in for that office.  Any and all communications go to the Office Manager b/c the Doctors/Lawyers/Whatevers are too busy to monitor email.  That's why they hire Office Managers.

- But, Office Managers need a different login than others, b/c they will have access to sensitive data about all the Lawyers/Doctors that should not be shared(like pay).

- Each individual Doctor/Lawyer may have access to reports that are just for them, so they cannot share logins.



This may be an unusual situation or a "special case", but the more MojoPortal is integrated with other systems(like we do), the more likely you will run into this.


Just my 2 cents.
