What's your idea for The Knot?

Guest List Manager Enhancements

(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.

    If would be nice to be able to upload an already-created Excel guest list instead of re-typing the very long list I have. Suggestion would be Column A - name
    Column B - street name and number
    Column C - city
    Column D - state
    Column E - zip

    And then to follow this, a way to group them into a household.

    Not only is it good to coordinate how many children to seat or entertain during a wedding; but it is very important to know how many you are feeding, as kids generally don't eat as much as adults. This is also very useful for catering searches, because many caterers provide discounted meals for children who are projected to attend.

    Hey There, it would be very helpful to have a title field for the guest list entries. This would facilitate e-mail sending, and ensure that no important title (such as Dr. ) is forgotten on invites, thank you cards and name cards. I have added the information in roles, which is not as convenient

    The guest list manager should be easier to manage. The page reloads every time I edit a guests info so I have to keep scrolling down to find my place again. Also, there used to be a way to bulk add plus ones to guests, what happened to that? This update just seems unnecessarily difficult and tedious.
