    Hi Guys

    We are two people in the household that share the same iCloud account. This because we want to share the pictures we have/take.

    However this has created a problem when we want to invite each other to a Activity competition. As far as I can see, when I invite it looks as I invite my self :) The name is the same on the both user that I can see on the list. And when I try to start a competition I can not get it to work.

    Is there a smart solution to this without having to get to different iCloud accounts?

    Hi
    Thanks for your answer, however this is only a specific album - to which I every time have to select photos that I want to share in. If I could share my entire photo album then it would be a good solution. But this way there is way too much manual administration

    If you tell Apple you're the same person, Apple is probably going to treat you that way. Not sure they could possibly do what you want, but maybe someone has an idea of which I've never heard.

    Yeah that is my hope too. I can not see any good ideas besides having two different accounts, but people do tend to be creative :)

    You can't compete against yourself, which is what sharing the same ID looks like to Apple's system.
