  1. RSVP

    Add a way to add a +1's name somewhere in the RSVP box. It populates as "Name's +1" but how are we supposed to know who they are bringing for the table cards? Or let us be able to edit the "Notes" section so we can remind them to add their guest's name.

        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.

        XOXO,

      • 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?

        • 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. : ((

          • Changing name of +1 for guests

            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).

              • Add more sort and filtering functionality to Guest List

                I would like the ability to sort by all of the different columns, such as "invite sent" to see whose invites are still outstanding, or "meal option" to group everyone who ordered the same type of meal together. Being able to filter on these options as well so only the guests with certain meal options are shown would be hugely helpful. It's a pain to export to Excel every time I want to check on my guest list.

                • 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 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.

                    • RSVP - multiple emails

                      Hi there! I would love to be able to add another email to the account. I've been getting all of the RSVP updates & wonderful messages that come with some of them. I forwarded them to my fiancé, and he said "why can't you just add me so you don't have to forward each of them." Which would make it a lot easier than sending each one to him individually.
                      Thanks so much!

                      • Allow guest to RSVP with their Mobile number instead of name.

                        Hi, I would love to use the Knot website to allow my guest to RSVP. Of course I only want the people that are on my guest list to RSVP. But the problem is when guest do not type their name like it is on the guest list they will not be able to RSVP.

                        I was wondering if "The Knot" can add a feature to where it can verify the guest by phone number? That would make it a lot more accurate and we would not have to worry about misspellings.

                        • Household management

                          Making the guest list manager import change has absolutely made the feature useless. It is a MASSIVE exercise in repetitive stress injury (Google it) having to manually go into each contact and add their head of household. You use to be able to do it in the import feature and the new Excel webpage does not allow you to do it (why?). Yet the export (in Excel format) has the data in it. Massively inconsistent.

                          Add back the feature to allow "advanced" users to use a CSV file to import their guest list manager. It really is not rocket science.

                            I really am sorry for this extra stress and inconvenience. Our Guest List Team does know this is a gap in our features offered and we are working on getting a fresh look at the Guest List and the import process just after the first of the year. I am happy to help you get these assigned if you want to send me your list – again, I do understand this is a major inconvenience.

                            Thank you for taking time to send your feedback. It will help as we press forward to making this part of our experience even better.

                          • 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?

                              We truly appreciate all the feedback we have been getting on the new Guest List Manager. We know that the old manager had a few more features and we are continuing to work on improving the GLM and the RSVP features on our new site builder. Your feedback is being considered and we truly hope you see some improvements in the next few weeks/months to come. If you have a specific question that we can help you with now, please email our team at help@theknot.com. We are happy to look at your specific account and see if we can help at all.

                              Thanks everyone – for your patience and understanding.

                            • Guest List Organizing

                              Hey I love the new Guest List, but there are some simple functions that are lacking/annoying.

                              1. It automatically sorts by 1st name. Coming from a person who use to file for a living this is annoying. I know you can switch if but every time you refresh the page or add a new person you have to re-sort it.

                              2. When you refresh any columns you had hidden automatically reappear. It can be really annoying when you are checking information.

                              3. For household can there be an accept all button. That way if everyone in a household accepted you…

                                • Add ability to make custom categories to Guest List Manager

                                  I would love to be able to make categories for my guests for organizing different groups and to make seating easier later (things like Bridal Party, Bride's Family, Bride's Friends, Groom's Family/Friends, Coworkers, etc--customizable would be great!)

                                  • Accept/Regret Colors

                                    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.

                                    • Guest Manager is cool, but could be awesome.

                                      Your guest list manager (the new version) is already pretty good, but there are a few things that could make it amazing:

                                      1. When I imported my guests with addresses (so that they'd group together easily), everything went well for parties of 2. However, any household over 2 people had the 3rd-Nth guests split off into their own household. I could fix things manually after the fact, but that was annoying.

                                      2. You should give the ability to specify more than just plus 1's. For example, I should be able to list the parents I'm inviting, and then specify that…

                                      • Add a "maybe" option for invites

                                        It would be great if we could organize our guest list into "definitely invited" and "maybe invited." Our venue can only fit 130 people, but our guest list is 150 people, so we are planning on sending rolling invitations. I would be great to add everyone all at once to keep track, but section off the people who won't be invited unless others decline. Thanks!

                                          When I export my guest list, the address lines, city, state, ZIP, and country all export into the same cell. I wish these remained separate fields, so I could upload the excel document into my invitation template.
