I'm trying to get my head around parents and pupils.
I've set up the parents with manual authentication
- username JohnSmit@email.com
- first name "Parent Of"
- second name "3rd Year John Smith"
- email: blank
When a parent logs in they must enter an email address.
Problem 1: Parents with multiple children cannot use the same email address
Problem 2: Divorced/Seperated parents have the same account.
I set up the whole "Parent of John Smith" to avoid having to deal with seperated/divorced parents.
What I need to do is decide what I want the parents role for. If its access their child's grades/logs - problem 1 presents the biggest challenge. Parents would need 3 seperate email addresses for their 3 seperate children. Or I need a way of changing the sql data to link the children to one parent account...
If its to access a parents section and chat to other parents, problem 2 is a slight problem but not a huge one!
