Linking users to accounts


Active Member
Hi I need to get my daughters user account to access our online subscription so she can access the Animal Crossing dlc tomorrow.

I have just subscribed to a family account. We have 2 switches. One has my user account on it and the other has mine and my daughters. She can’t go onine as she doesn’t have a Nintendo account, I was trying to link her user account to my Nintendo account but it didn’t go thru as it said another user on that switch was already linked..

I cannot delete her user account because of the hundreds of hrs of save data.

Should I delete my user account from that switch and then link DD user to my account - would that work?
I can’t add a family member from the admin account as her user doesn’t have an email associated with it.

I'm going to answer my own question in case someone else comes looking. I created a new kids account from my own Nintendo account then logged into that from the local user account - connecting the two and now being a part of the family account - all good.
