Adult/Child Email address replication
Just a little warning for anyone that uses the EMBC email.
I came across an issue where an adult and child were given exactly the same email address, which causes a little bit of a problem.
If you have your site email format set to [forename-initial][surname][N]@domain, an adult (eg. John Smith) will be given the same email address as a child (eg. Joanne Smith). This is because the child and adult databases are completely separate, so would not generate unique addresses (ie. jsmith@domain and jsmith1@domain).
Thankfully, our children have not yet used their email, so we have changed our format to username@domain.
It is something that Synetrix are aware of, and will hopefully be fixed by the October update.
Just be careful when you are generating your new addresses for the new school year.
