Have "Accept" or "Decline" rather than a checkmark or an X.
Customizable would be ideal, but I'm afraid that the X and checkmark options might be confusing. I'd like it to say "Accepts with Pleasure" or "Declines with Regret" or something along those lines.
Yay! Thanks to your feedback, this is now available to all of our users.
Enjoy your planning!

Totally agree. The search function does not work. If I search for "Pat", my list doesn't cull down to names that contain "Pat". I have to manually scroll through the entire list to see the letters "Pat" highlighted in the names that contain them. It's pointless. Also agree that it's irritating that the list can't be sorted alphabetically OR by who has accepted/declined.

I'm concerned regarding the 'functionality' of your Guest List, or lack thereof.
- There is a search field, but you cannot search.
- There are arrows under NAME as if you can sort alphabetically, but you cannot.
These are fairly basic functions that I'm surprised to see have not been resolved. I've seen mentions of this issue back to 2016 - tickets marked as "Closed" - but still the same issue.
Please consider fixing some of the most basic features on your site, until they are fixed I will be recommending competitors sites to friends who are needing such a tool.
I have tried: Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer. I have cleared temporary internet files such as cache and cookies, I tried an incognito window, I have tried it on my desktop and on my phone, and I've even done some basic troubleshooting in the console with no error messages being returned.
I also was very confused about the check mark. I thought the check mark meant "is this you"? I did not realize I was RSVPing yes when I clicked that. I also would want "accept" or "decline" or "yes" or "no". And I am a fairly computer savvy millennial.
Searching DOESN'T work! It "grays out" the other items, but is practically useless!

The new Guest List updates make it into a chore to sort your guests! Highlighting the names and making it difficult to scroll through them instead of actually just sorting the catergories was a mistake. Terrible web design! You should be able to sort according to RSVP, Meal Choice and search the guest's name like before.
And I had to go back and re-edit my website seven days before the wedding (when I have a million other things to do) to correct the formatting that got messed up somehow. I had originally made the website months ago and thought that was done. I am sad to say I won't be recommending the Knot to any of my bride-to-be friends, super dissappointed and frustrated by all the extra work I've had to do right before my wedding due to the Knot.
This is adding a lot more stress to people.. Why would we change this? People will leave this site and not recommend it to others now? Please make this change ASAP.
Yes, It should not just highlight them! This makes it a lot more stressful and harder to find people!!!
Yes! I have no idea who made the call to modify searches so they only highlight the matching text instead of filtering out what you see. Please bring this back!

PLEASE bring back the search feature on the Guest List manager! That is one of the most useful tools when doing invitations and thank-you notes, especially if you have a large wedding invite list.
Haley Beets commented
Previously, I was able to search the Guest List by name and the guest list results were filtered down only to people with that name. Now in the most recent 2019 version of the feature, people with the searched name are simply highlighted in black with the other names greyed out. They are not filtered and I have to manually scroll to see which name is highlighted. I'd like a return to the old filtering behavior, please! It was much more usable to quickly add info. Thank you!

Seriously why did you guys make an update to the guestlist? this was a terrible update. I literally have to scroll through for the declines and no response to find out who (bolding it makes absolutely no sense) it's supposed to be a search feature not hide and seek.
Is there an update on this?
I wish that when I type in to find a guests name, it would make all the other names disappear. When im searching someone to edit their name, it just bolds it but then i have to scroll through and find it. If im typing in the person's name, why won;t it take out the rest? Doesn't seem very productive.
We're getting RSVPs back now and it's annoying to search through the whole list to find the guests we need to mark. It doesn't even seem to be in any particular order and it's not sortable either which would be easier. Please fix the search feature! It's been broken for a long time!
Bryan Wallace commented
Agreed. This is a terrible new way to do it. Why was there a change? When I organize tables, it's hard to look at who's accepted and who hasn't. When I was following up with ppl for RSVPs, I just wanted to see the list of ppl I needed to contact, not have to scroll through 190 names.
Please fix this. It is so frustrating especially when you are searching through more than 100 people trying to figure out who has not responded. It makes it like trying to find a needle in the haystack. The search option doesn't even work the way it used to. You still have to scroll down through all the different names and look for the highlighted name.
Please go Back to the original way it was sometimes updates on not always affective! The term is if it’s not broken don’t fix it!
Please fix this asap. The inability to search by decline or no response is making it nearly impossible to use my guest list. I also don't like that I can no longer just search a name and have it come up. The guest list feature really isn't that helpful to me anymore with these changes
Katherine Evans commented
Can you please fix this immediately? It is adding immense stress. Seriously.
There's no good reason to not correct this and aim for positive experiences
for those who think the Knot will serve useful purposes, which I'm sure is our shared value.
Please escalate this beyond the "we'll take this into consideration" level and make this right.
Breahna Blakely commented
I was using the Knot as my go-to wedding tool for tracking RSVPs. This new change makes the guest list no longer functional. My RSVP deadline is getting close so this is super inconvenient. I can no longer filter by who has accepted, declined, or given no response. The Knot, why would you change this feature? I don't see who your update could be helpful to anyone. Can you please change it back as soon as you can?
