I'm trying to connect my account in another academy but I'm getting an error

If you're encountering issues trying to connect your accounts, make sure that:

  • The account your are connecting is an admin or manager account in a different academy than the one where you're using your primary account.
  • There is no existing learner/manager/admin account with the same email as the primary one, in the academy you want to connect.
