How to open front passenger door (2016 Model X)

We have had a 2013 MS for a couple years and bought a CPO 2016 MX from Tesla a couple weeks ago.

Is there a way to open only the front passenger door with the key fob? Right now, we double-click the top button once to open the driver's door, wait a few seconds, and then double-click the top button again to open the front passenger door. Then we press the top button to close both/all doors

TIA

Not that I know and I was looking for that. I have had the option on other cars to unlock all doors when the driver's door is unlocked. It was accurately pointed out to me that this would allow somebody with bad intentions on the other side of the car enter when I unlocked my door. Maybe this safety factor is why Tesla has it the way it is.

Yeah, I've had cars with the option to unlock all doors or just the driver's door and it's certainly a safety thing.

But I do like having the option to control that setting.

Double click the fob once to open the driver door

double click twice in sequence (almost like a video game with a slight pause in between double-clicks) to open the passenger door

Yeah, that is exactly what I've been doing, as explained in my original post.

I'm looking for a way to only open the passenger front door and not the driver's door.

Only way is to press the handle or use the screen in the car. There is no keyfob way to only open the passenger door unfortunately.
