Can I manually add members to a private membership without email?

I'm setting up a membership for teachers and students. The teacher membership is no problem, however I would like to have a private membership where the teacher would send me a list of user names and I manually add them to a private membership. I do not want student emails. Is this possible? I can't seem to get around the required email... Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Hello @Brandon

    Welcome to WPMU community!

    I hope you are well today and thanks for asking the question.

    Logically, to be a Protected Content membership member, someone needs to be a normal user first. And to be an user, he must need an email address, doesn't need to be valid one though.

    So, as you need to make them as user, so email address is must. What you can do is to use some fake or invalid email addresses to create those users.

    Hope it helps :slight_smile: Please feel free to ask more question if you have.
