Error “Email Already Exist” Explained for i-Neighbour

This article shows the user what to do when they try to change an email address, name, phone number, account code for a particular unit but when they click the “Save” button, the error “Email already exists” appears.

This happens because the email has already been registered in the other unit number, whether in the same neighbourhood or in other neighbourhoods subscribed with the iNeighbour system.

The change of data is usually done for these reasons: 
i) To ensure all multiple units under the same owner use the same email.
ii) Owner requests to use a new email address
iii) Wrong email address was entered
iv) Change a new account code for accounting purposes
This article provides three situations to guide the admin on how to handle this situation.

2. Insert all the correct information (Account code/Name/Email address/ Phone number)
3. Click Save

Note: By default, an account code is optional. However, if you are using E-billing / i-Account, it is compulsory to add an account code.
