Alphabetize Guest List
Please allow an option for guest list on the website to be alphabetized. I am constantly scrolling up and down trying to find a guest's name.
Suggestion: Indent the +1s under the main guest's name so that they're easily identifiable, instead of them lining them up with everyone else's.

Please address this issue! This is important. We need to be able to alphabetize the guest list!
I agree with everyone else. It is very frustrating that I can't alphabetize my guest list (especially when using my laptop). It makes it MUCH harder to sort through my guest list and keep track.
I would very much appreciate this feature being added!!
I'm confused, this initial request from two years ago is marked as "completed", but you are actually not able to alphabetize the guest list on the website. You are able to see an alphabetized list through the app on your phone, but that is not really helpful when trying to do planning on your laptop. Can we please get this feature up and running on the website?? Otherwise this function is completely useless. I can't keep track of my guests using the site!!! Crazy disappointing that this idea was brought up two years ago and there has been no action! The Knot is a popular and widely used site, to not have a simple feature like this is mind boggling to me, not to mention frustrating.

This makes things very difficult! Please change this!!
(Different options - when they first come in, alphabetical - last name, first name, etc.)
Come on, this is crazy! This was posted 2 years ago and should have been the default when the guest list function was made in the first place. It is Ridiculous that you can't sort! The amount of work it is taking to double check my guest list against the list I have typed outside of the Knot is ridiculous because the knot list is sorted by entry order! So I can't even try to match my other list's sort based on the Knot's because it's basically random since it was just where we brainstormed at first (not smart, in retrospect).
And now, instead of doing all of the things I need to do, I'm spending time writing this...also not smart. You're welcome.
YES! Please provide an option to alphabetize the guest list!
Completely ridiculous that this has not been addressed.
Yes Please do. I feel like I just wasted so much time because I did not know it wouldn't be in alphabetical order. There was one time that I was able to have it in order when I exported my list but it will no longer do that for me anymore.
I have over 200 guests and no way to alphabetize. This is insane. This should be a basic feature.
If I knew that I would have used a different platform. It's too late for me though because I purchased my domain name and was told it would take up to 24 hours to change my url (you have to repurchase a new name) and 10 days to undo it completely. I already sent out my url on the save the dates. So I guess I'm stuck with my inability to sort guests by alphabetical order. I'd really like to know why so many people over the years have asked for this and it was ignored. Disappointing. I would not recommend to anyone. Also side note, WeddingWire has a nice seating chart feature. :/

Unbelievable that this has not yet been addressed. Had I known I couldn’t sort my guests names alphabetically, I would have used another website. Thank god i found a way around this, which isn’t ideal but I guess I have to manage. Thought others might like to know:
Download the knot app from App Store
Go on Guest List
Click on View Full Summary
Scroll all the way down to Thank Yous Sent and click on “See Who’s Left”
Your households will appear listed in alphabetical order.
I’ll be using this for my seating chart planning.
I haven’t had any guests decline yet so I don’t know whether those who decline will also appear on household list here; will have to keep track of that and make sure not to attribute tables to those guests.
Not ideal AT ALL but the best way to get around this problem that I’ve found. Hope it helps others.

Here I was thinking I was doing something wrong.. smh still no resolution.
my work around this was to export them CSV into an excel file and sort them A - Z to view the list in order.
I don't even see ANY order that my guests are listed in. I don't even think it's by date I entered them. Is there any kind of order that the guest list is in?
This should be the most obvious and easy to implement 'function' possible. Not doing it makes literally no sense at all.

I thought it was just me. With all of the organizational programs already embedded in the site, why can't they do that?
I can't believe it isn't possible to alphabetize the guest list. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to the way guests are listed. Not user friendly at all. Very disappointed in this part of your planning site.

Well obviously the plea from your current clients about alphabetizing has COMPLETELY FALLEN ON BLIND EYES & DEAF EARS... Your first public notification about this error was in 2017... it's now 2019 and this issue still hasn't been resolved.... WHY ? I am not a bridezilla... just a frustrated client...
Hello, please have an option to alphabetize the guest list. It's AGONIZING to sort through 400+ guests with no rhyme or reason!!!
