How do I create multiple observer accounts using shared email addresses?

All users of Vantage Space must have a valid working email address. Normally, this will be the business e-mail address of whoever you are inviting to the account. However, there can be times when you’ll choose to create email accounts in order to create the Vantage Space user accounts you need.

You want multiple observers responsible for the same tour but working different times or days. Vantage Space only allows you to allocate one observer per workspace so you’ll have your observers share a login and/or iPad.

For instance, goes to the Gmail inbox for

And you can do the same with 2, 3, 4, 5 and so on. For example:
