There are many cases where it is necessary to add a secondary parent to a child so they can also register the child for intakes and edit the child's details.
Adding the secondary parent is easy - you only need to click the "Add Secondary Parent" button which you will find in the child's summary page (accessed when you click on their name from the dashboard).
Here you'll be able to add the email address of the secondary parent you want to add. If you wish to add a secondary parent to more than one child you will need to do this separately. Each child can be individually assigned secondary parents.
Please note: It is important to use the email address that the secondary parent used to register.
Capabilities of Secondary Parents

Removing Secondary Parents
If you ever wish to remove the secondary parent, navigate to the child's details summary and click the yellow button "Remove Secondary Parent".
Applying as a Secondary Parent Due to a Duplicate Child
Children cannot be duplicated in the software. Only one instance may exist for every child. You may be prompted to apply as secondary parent if the software recognises that you are trying to re-enter a child who is already in the system.
