  1. RSVP's "And Guest"

    There should be an option that allows us to add "And Guest" as well as the response if the "And Guest" will be attending. Also, there should be an option for feedback on how many other guests will be attending (for example: the head of the household responds "attending" but we don't know if that means the spouse and/or all their kids will be attending as well)

    • Consistency across platforms

      Managing my guest list with both the website and the mobile app has been a challenge since some features work differently online and on the app. Example: "+1" vs "Plus One" Grouping house holds and adding multiple people in the app is much more clear than on the web page.

      Thanks!

      • Secure RSVP Not Default Setting

        I think it is 100% unacceptable that a Secure RSVP (where random, uninvited people can't just type in their information and RSVP to your wedding) isn't the default setting. I discovered this today after sharing a link to my engagement photos on my site and discovering upon my return home at the end of the day that a bunch of new guests- who I hadn't invited, mind you- had RSVPed to my wedding. It took me YouTube videos and Google searches to finally figure out how to turn it off. Absolutely unacceptable that an open RSVP is the DEFAULT setting…

        • Alphabetical sorting by first or last name

          This used to be by first name, and since I have numbered and sent out my invitations you have switched the sort to by last name. I am sure that for most people this is a more natural sort, but the change was made without any notice and will make double checking the responses from everyone much harder for me.

          • I would love to be able to export my bridal shower guest list separate from my wedding guest list.

            My maid of honor is throwing my bridal shower for women only and she wants it to be a surprise so she's mailing themed bridal shower invitations to my guests but instead of sending her a exported list of 59 guests I have to send her a list of my total guest count for my wedding.

            • Text message or Email RSVP reminders

              It would be really amazing if the guest list manager would allow the bride/groom to send a text message or email reminder for those guests who did not yet RSVP.

                • Guest Manager

                  The Guest List Manager should allow you to seen when (date and time) as well as how (online vs. manually entered). I'm allowing guests to RSVP online but also provided paper response cards. It is VERY easy on the app to accidentally enter a response when trying to scroll down the list. I don't have any way to double check if that person RSVP-ed on their own or if I accidentally entered an RSVP when I scrolled.

                  • Guest list manager idea

                    Guest list manager and RSVP need to be able to allow guests to specify number of adults and number of children attending. Would help alot with catering planning. Current manager won't do that. So I may have to go back to phone call RSVP's. : ((

                      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.

                      • "Save the Date" cards should have a place on the guest list to check that you've sent that families card.

                        You have invitation and thank you but you also send out save the date cards/magnets. There should be a place on the guest list so you can check this item.

                          Hello first I'd like to let you know that the knot has been such a tremendous help during the planning of our wedding. It is very user friendly, however I do have one suggestion in making it more efficient. Adding a "Save the Date sent" tab to the guest list manager would allow brides to check each person that received the save the date as well as the invitations.

                            (1) It would help greatly if the export function includes NOTES & ROLE. This is currently not the case. This is very helpful when exporting for place card, escort card printing.

                            (2) Add ability to sort by column/field. I'm having to expert guest list on excel to sort/filter list. This is helpful when targeting specific guest to follow up on such as viewing only "no response" guests.

                            (3) Add ability to add custom fields that can be exported. Special security or destination wedding locations requires additional information to track and collect from guest to allow entry/travel to event.

                              It would be great for the accept to show as a green background and regret as a different color so as you are scrolling through the guest list I can easily tell that the guest is unable to attend.

                                It would be great if the creator of the guest list can select a plus one option for the guests they are adding to their guest list, and then when what that said guest goes to RSVP, they have the option to add the name of their plus 1 (instead of the creator of the guest list having to change it later).

                                  1) separate the addresses into separate fields:

                                  Address 1
                                  Address 2
                                  City, State, Zip code

                                  this will allow the export to excel be smoother for making mail mergers

                                  2) Once you assign a head of household, make it so you can add another member to the household in succession (such as their dependents or spouse). Have the last name, home address information pull over from the previous entry so all you would need to add is their first name.

                                  • A notification when guests with duplicate names are being imported into the guest list.

                                    A "detected" notification for when guests with duplicate names are being imported into the guest list. It took me a while to figured out why 3 guests were missing in the GLM from my csv sheet. Allow guests with duplicate names.

                                    • With the upgraded guestlist, you don't have the option to view accepted/declined RSVPs at a glance.

                                      Adding the option, like there was before to see a running total of accepted and declines and invited numbers for each event that has been created.

                                        I really DISLIKE how you can no longer view guests according to their RSVP. I would NEVER have updated if I knew this feature would be removed. It is really inconvenient. The new lay out is not easier to navigate and really wish I could go back to what it was before. Terrible update. Also, I have had much trouble when people have same names but are put into different households. This website would not allow that and therefore I had to make up ways to distinguish some guests (for example - 2 of my male cousins who share the…

                                          Please make a feature that allows you to see which RSVPs are new quickly. Almost like an email is unread until you open it sorta? Maybe like a blue dot to the left that means "new" that's there until you click on it. Thank you
