  1. allow more than one email address per guest

    I have many guests for whom I have more than one email address. I don't know which one is the best for them, the one they check and the one that is old and neglected. I want to be able to send emails to all of their addresses and NOT have them come up as duplicate guests with the same name. Then if they search for themselves by name, the guest list manager comes back and says "there is more than one John Smith. Please contact the bride and groom to RSVP". Or something to that effect. Not cool. This…

    • What defines a "party" or "party leader" under the GLM page? Nowhere is it explained.

      Please define what is meant by the terms "party" and "party leader" in the GLM. And what does the statement that all +1 invites need to be a party leader. Totally confused.

        Thank you for asking this question. I also agree it can be a bit confusing. We are looking forward to actually changing this in our new Guest List update this summer – so I can tell you to watch for that.

        But for now, Party Leader is basically the head of household for that group of guests. For example… If you invite Uncle Bob and Aunt Suzi and their two children, then Uncle Bob may be the Party Leader. This way you can sort the list (after you export the list) by the Party Leader to be reminded that he had 4 people in his party. This is helpful when you start looking at sending invitations and doing seating charts.

        We hope that in the future we can use Household as our key word and I believe it will make much more sense.

        XOXO,
        Keri

      • meal option count filter

        Hello,
        I absolutely love the app and being able to easily and quickly enter in acceptance/decline replies with their meal option. I love the drop downs that allow you to look at just the accepted or just the no response guests. However the frustrating part is that Ive gone through and put in all the information for my guests and i should be able to click a button and get the meal option counts to be able to give the venue instead of having to go through an physically count how many of each we need! Right now we dont…

        • Add Prefix and suffix fields for Guest List Manager

          It would be great to have an additional field before the first name and after the last name to denote any formal headings/suffix for the guest (like Dr. or Honorable). This will be great when using this list to address my own invites, so I don't forget!

          • Link incoming address collections

            I sent my guests the address collection link... but when it came in the only option was to make them a new guest. I should be able to link the provided address with the party leader of my choosing. Especially because I'm sending the link to the ladies who respond faster, but the party leader for sake of how I write invitations is the men.

            • RSVP

              I was wondering if there was a way to customize the secure RSVP invites. I am using the Guest List Manager so that only people with invites can RSVP. However, it the guest enters their name differently than I did (for example if the guest types "Matt" vs "Matthew") the invite does not pop up. One way of resolving this may be to have the option to put in a nickname for the guest, so they can enter with either "Matt" or "Matthew." Is this feasible currently?

                There is a website call ineedyouraddress.com It allows you to use a link to your personal wedding page so that people can put in their address and information!

However, I would have loved to take the list from that website and be able to convert it into a guest list in theknot!

                  • Allow for flexible "Find my invitation" searching

                    AFAIK, there are currently two options when allowing guests to RSVP - secure and unsecure.

                    If I choose unsecure, then if a guest named "Michael Smith" searches for his invitation as "Mike Smith", it will create a new guest.

                    If I choose secure RSVP, the above scenario would result in the guest being alerted that their invitation couldn't be found.

                    It would be great if you could "search" for an invitation by simply supplying a last name and allowing the user to select the relevant invitation. I understand there are potential privacy concerns, but it could easily be a configurable…

                      • RSVP - multiple emails

                        Hi there! I would love to be able to add another email to the account. I've been getting all of the RSVP updates & wonderful messages that come with some of them. I forwarded them to my fiancé, and he said "why can't you just add me so you don't have to forward each of them." Which would make it a lot easier than sending each one to him individually.
                        Thanks so much!

                            • RSVP - ability to include party size when someone RSVPs vs individual names

                              When inviting families, I do not sometimes want to know the individual names (for example kids). I just need to know how many adults and how many kids will be attending - counts only. For large families it becomes quite cumbersome to type out each individuals name (and essentially I don't care..). Is there a way of indicating, under RSVP settings, whether I want a count (adults and kids) vs individual RSVP (the way the site functions currently). Then under guest list manager, I just want to see a column (or couple) for the counts.
                              This will work great when…

                                  This is something our team is working on. We hope to have many new features in our Guest List Manager pushed out before the end of 2016. Including being able to add your guests +1 names when they RSVP.

                                  XOXO,

                                • Please add keyboard shortcuts when entering guest information

                                  It is hard to manually enter a lot of guests' information because the interface is very reliant on mouse clicks, when it would be pretty easy to make it more keyboard friendly.

                                  When entering a new guest, the window should auto focus on the First Name text box so you can start typing immediately, you should be able to fill out/select every option using Tab, arrow keys, and space bar. You should be able to add a new guest (same party or different party) without having to touch the mouse. This would make it a lot easier to keep up…

                                    We really appreciate you taking time to send in this feedback and suggestion. I have already forwarded this on to our Guest List team for their review. They continue to work on updates and improvements for this tool and hopefully this will make it into our road map in the near future.

                                    Enjoy the rest of your planning!

                                  • RSVP put the name of the guest on the email

                                    When a RSVP email is sent it would be great to have the guests first name and last name on the email and that is the name they should use when finding their invitation.
                                    So basically it is like a mail merge and you can add fields to the emails.
                                    Even better if the RSVP email being sent out could have user defined fields eg {email} {firstname} and those details are taken from the guest manager information.

                                    • Guest List Manager Capabilities (like the old version)

                                      I am attempting to export my guest list for the calligrapher, but it seems to be exporting the list as individuals. In other words, the individuals that should be grouped together as one party, are being separated. If I attempt to sort the list according to the Party Leader's Last name, it doesn't help because a number of parties have the same last name. So even though all the "Smith's" are together, the individuals are scrambled amongst different parties with that last name. I then attempted to sort the "Smith's" according to the Party Leader's First Name, to see if…

                                        I really appreciate you taking time to send in this feedback and to list the experiences you have had. In moving to our new technology, some of our functionalities were delayed. We are still looking at updating the Guest List Manager as we move into 2016. I will say those things you aren’t finding right now were not being used by most of the members using the tool, and this is why they were not in the priority list.

                                        It is good to hear you would like more of this to be in the new version and we are listening.

                                        Stay tuned and we will both see how these updates over the next few months land.

                                        It would be so great to be able to add another guest to an existing party! As it is, if you want to put another on there, you have to delete them all and start over.

                                        • The guest list manager should have more options to export guest list.

                                          It should give options like download list by party, name, gender, etc. Right now when I export it only shows my total list but there are husband/wive that live at the same address so would be sharing an invite. That means I have to go through and manually count the number of households to figure out how many invites I need to order. I think there were options like that on the old version of the website but not the new?
