2 Ground Conductors Under 1 Screw in Subpanel - Intermatic T30404R

I have an Intermatic T30404R subpanel, and I realized that I only have 1 ground terminal left. I have 2 wires that need to be connected. I checked the instructions on the panel door, but it does not say anything about putting 2 grounds under 1 screw. It is 12 AWG THWN. Does anyone know if this is permitted for this panel? If not, can I pigtail the two grounds together and connect them that way? It looks like there is the option to add an additional ground bar, so that is likely what I will do. I just need this temporarily until I can order it.

Usually you can put two ground wire under one screw.
Since that is a pool panel..... you must have a neutral bar and a separate ground bar. The grounds and neutrals cannot be connected together.
