Inviting a partner to manage your family on S'moresUp is a two-part process. The first part involves the owner sending an invitation using the email address of the partner and the second part is where the partner downloads the app and accepts the invitation.
If your partner has already downloaded the app and created an account, then they would get a notification on their account to join your family.

FAQ 1: My partner has already created an account with S'moresUp. Now I want to invite them to be part of my family. How will that work?
Answer: If your partner has already created an account with the email address, your partner will get a notification asking them to join your family. All they have to do is accept the invitation and they will be taken to join your S'moresUp Family.
FAQ 2: I click invite partner, I add my husband's email, then it sends the email, but when he clicks on the link to be added it just says the page is not available.
Answer: Please make sure the invite link in the email is opened from a mobile device. The links are designed so that it works with mobile devices for linking to your family. If opened from unsupported devices, an error is displayed.
