We are excited to share two new features that we’ve rolled out for your Glo Wedding Website. These features are intended to make your life easier, while giving guests the ability to edit their own information in your guestbook. Result? You have more time to spend on the fun stuff instead of the boring admin stuff. Both of these features are optional, but we hope you’ll find the useful.

New Feature: Guests can add or edit mailing addresses

Very few of us have friends’ and family’s snail mail addresses on hand. So when it comes time to send paper wedding invitations or thank you notes, things get tricky. At Glo, we’ve just rolled out a feature that allows a guest to provide or update the snail mail address for their entire household. The new information is saved directly into your address book for all guests in the household. The feature works like this:

1) You enable this feature in “Manage Glösite” > edit “RSVP” page > check off feature allowing guests to edit their mailing address. (Note: you can customize the text on the button)

1a add edit mailing address feature glosite

2) On the RSVP page of your Glosite wedding website, guests are prompted to provide their mailing address

1b guests click to edit mailing address

3) The mailing address information is edited and saved into your guestbook for all guests in the Household

1c guest updates mailing address

 

New Feature: Guests can edit the names and email addresses of all the guests in their household

Are you in the situation where you don’t know the name of a +1 your guest is bringing? Or you don’t know the email addresses for a friend’s significant other? Now, your guests can provide this information for you. Here is how the feature works:

1) Enable the “edit names” feature in “Manage Glösite” > edit “RSVP” page > check off feature allowing guests to edit their names. (Note: you can customize the text on the button)

2a add edit names emails feature glosite

2) On the RSVP page of your Glosite wedding website, guests are prompted to update the names and email addresses for everyone in their Household

2b guests click to edit names and emails

3) The updated name and email information is saved into your guestbook

2c guest updates names and emails

    This seems like a great feature! My only concern is if someone would swap out guests entirely when they edit the name. Not a super huge concern since people can't change the number of guests, but still something that crossed my mind.

    Do you know if we would be sent a notification when someone changed their information?

      Guests could swap out all of the names using this feature (I am not sure why they would, but the technology would allow them to do this.) What they would not be able to do is add additional names – i.e., if you allow them to bring one guest, they would not be able to add the names of two guests.

      We do not currently have a notification in place for when a name or address is changed, but we are working on it for the near future. I hope that helps!
