    Add second user?

    I have 2 users (myself and my wife) under a single Withings profile. When configuring the plugin and authenticating it with Withings, it asked which user I want to link, so I selected my user. What is the process of adding a second user? Using BETA 3.0.1.42 here. Thanks.

    Repeat the authentication and pick your wife.

      allows adding the second user and doesn't disconnect the first one, so everything is good now.

        That is correct. I need to reword the config screen. It is still somewhat a mess from the rewrite.

          Back to this topic again...

          So, is multiple profiles under a single account the only supported option with this plugin?

          That's how I'm using it right now, but I don't see a button to "Add Instance" for multiple account support...

          There are pros and cons to multiple profiles under one account vs. multiple separate accounts, as per https://support.withings.com/hc/en-u...-user-profile-

          A few things to keep in mind about user profiles and accounts:
          • Some features are only available to the main user of the profile (in-app step tracking, timeline, leaderboard and reminders, for example).
            Click here if you want to change the main user of the account, or here if you want to make a user profile independent, with a separate account.
          • Some of our products can be used by all members of the account (such as our scales or our blood pressure monitors) while others can be only be used by a single user (such as our activity trackers).

            I have not tried it, but if when you go to connect another user, you sign into a different user on witings it should allow you to connect uses from any number of accounts (without having to use multiple instances). All I care about is the Auth Token which is all that Withings sends me back.

              Ah, interesting! I may need to try that.
