Multiple developer accounts?

I'm developing an app that requires 2+ people to use it. As a solo developer, it would help if I could get a second account for testing purposes. Is this possible?

    Hi Anthony, you can make as many developer accounts as you need! Check out this link for your second account: https://auth.monday.com/users/sign_up_new?developer=true

    that was easy :) Thank you!

    I too am a solo developer. I haven't yet gone beyond just creating my account, but I was under the impression that the way to test would be to invite one or more users / guests, for which I simply need separate email addresses.

    That's to say, as a complete newbie, I was under the impression that an account equates to an organization, and the admin(s) of an account can invite multiple users to join. (And they themselves do not need to create monday.com accounts.)

    Have I got that right? And if so, is there any benefit to creating multiple developer accounts?

    Hey Colin, great question. Separate emails would mimic the actual invite experience, correct. Accounts are just like you stated - an organization. Think of themselves as a city. You then have neighborhoods (what we call Workspaces) and houses (what we call Boards) in those neighborhoods.

    Some people opt to have multiple workspaces but indeed it is rare to have multiple accounts for this reason. Let me know if that helps @Colin!

    Thanks Matthew. It's good to know my assumptions were correct for once. :-)

    I was mainly asking for Anthony's benefit, since he seems to be asking for something which he does not need in order to carry out his testing.

    (And, indeed, I'm wondering if it is more difficult with separate accounts, as presumably there are some additional security-related steps required in order to give them access to the same boards?)

    My only other speculation was that maybe there are in fact benefits to testing with two separate developer accounts (in the realm of debugging, etc.) that I am not yet familiar with?

    Always happy to help! If I've learned anything over the years being here is that absolutes are hard to come by when it comes to software - I've seen good reasons for having multiple accounts but they are incredibly unique to the organization. As for dev accounts, while I agree it could make it more difficult I can see scenarios where it would make sense. Cross account collaboration apps perhaps? Excited to see what happens!
