  1. Please add back the Guest List Manager summary feature.

    Please add back the Guest List Manager summary feature. Being able to view how many bride vs groom parties were there, number of invitations would need to be sent (parties rather than individuals), etc. was very helpful. As of right now, I'd have to go down my wedding guest list and manually count the unique addresses when trying to determine how many invitations, stamps, etc need to be ordered.

        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.

      • Alphabetical sorting

        And before we start, I know there are at least 2 other tickets mentioning this, but since there no change (one ticket from August 2014), I assume you guys totally neglect this part.

        The guest list manager is unusable as it can't sort (I'm not even gonna start on the performance of this, the manager is so slow), filter people out, etc. How am I supposed to maintain a list of 90+ people without any form of filter or sorting? I'll give you an example:

        I added a few people but found out my amount of party guest is correct,…

          Hi and thanks so much for writing in! We 100% review the feedback on this forum. The Product teams here are considering all of the user feedback we’ve received. Unfortunately, some changes are slower to be developed than others.

          We will be making improvements to the Guest List Manager soon and the improvements will address the sorting issues you are referencing.

          There is a dropdown at the top of the Guest List called “All of Our Wedding Guests” that allows sorting by Invitations, RSVPs, and Gifts & Thank you Notes that can be very helpful in the mean time.

          Thanks so much for sending in your thoughtful feedback!

        • 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…

          • [Guest List Manager] Zip Codes don't export with guest address information.

            I thought it was wonderful that suggested addresses popped up when entering my guests into the Guest List Manager. But it wasn't so wonderful to export the list and discover there were no zip codes included. So now I have to go back and enter those again. It really makes the address finder feature useless.

              Hi and thanks so much for letting us know about this issue. We are looking into it and will get back to you when we have an update.

              You should absolutely be able to export the zip codes associated with each guest address!

              Thanks for your patience!

              The new guest list manager is lacking a lot of the features the old version had. For instance being able to sort by group/Brides family vs Grooms family. Also, the view is extremely unorganized. In the old guest list manger you could see easily distinguish between parties. Are any updates coming?

                We are continuing to work on our Guest List Manager. The A/B feature was honestly one that wasn’t used by many members in the older version, so it wasn’t a priority to bring it forward. We have instead put in Party Leaders so you can sort your guests by either who they are coming with or by bride/groom, etc.

                All that to say – We are listening to feedback on the Guest List Manager to make some additional improvements in 2016. I appreciate you sending this 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?

                  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.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                          • 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?

                            • More access to view completed address forms.

                              I have around 250 guests on my list (many of them children) and I have already found the address forms very useful. However, when people fill out the form, I only have that brief moment before accepting that information to see it. I didn't think about that and accepted some replies on my phone while out, hoping to come back home and review them. it took me over an hour to find the 2 replies because I had to search through every guest to remember who sent the information back in case I need to pass it on. When the…

                                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! It was a life saver when it came to combining addresses! I have suggested it to everyone I know. However, I would have loved to take the list from that website and be able to convert it into a guest list in theknot! Or be able to take the guest from the knot and put it in ineedyouraddress because they will create a PDF so you can print the labels for your…

                                    Hello

                                    Unfortunately our guest list manager can only export the entire list. We are still making improvements and this option may be possible in the future, so be on the look out for any updates.

                                    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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Guest list manager update is not so great

                                        I lost about ten guests in the import- so I had to print out the old one and go through one by one to find out who I'm missing. This would be easier if guests were organized in the same format as the old list. I'll probably just switch to Excel from here on out. Not impressed.

                                        • 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…
