  1. Make some family viewers only

    Can you invite family that you want to view your content but not be able to comment on it?

    • Change permissions assigned to family and friends

      The parent should be able to limit who adds photos or videos, because you may want some people to be able to view and comment but not be able to upload stuff.

        Hi
        Thanks for reaching out with this request – we know it is a much needed feature. And we’re building it too. Within about a month from now you’ll be able to choose who, from your friends and family, does what.

        Many thanks,
        Ed & the Lifecake team

      • Separate families on Lifecake so they do not see each others comments and photos

        ''I have one more comment/suggestion for a feature to think about adding. Not sure how possible or difficult it would be to do, but here goes... Hopefully this is clearer than mud.

        Is there a way to have one account (as a parent), but have it split into "families" or groups so divorced and or divided families can not see comments and photos of the other side of the family.

        I have thought of opening up 3 Lifecake accounts- but then Im uploading to 3 separate accounts and most of the photos would be the same. I do not have…

        • How to close an account or link more than one

          Allow 2 accounts to be linked so that if you have more than one person inviting you you can see them all on the app

          • explain ...

            Explain better to the user (me) how how the family can accept the invitation. My grandfather with his new mobile asked me and i couldn't explain... he doesn't know a lot about computer, so it would be great if i would know how the people can accept it easily.

            • Choose who can download content and who cannot

              It would be nice to be able to select who is able to download content and who cannot. For example, I would like to select which users can download the entire library and individual images. This would be very useful as some viewers of my library I dont want having complete access to download the library

              • Add an API to be able to upload photos or videos

                Do you have any plan to upload photos via an API (ideally something like Python API)?

                I would like to integrate automatic upload from a dedicated folder on my computer (or actually my Synology NAS) with a script).

                      How about adding albums for written posts with pics included inside the album. My written stories don't always line up with my photos that I've uploaded.

                              Buenos días,
                              Primeramente felicitaros por la aplicación, es muy buena, muy buen espacio gratuito y nos tiene a la familia muy unidos y al día con la vida de los bebés. Enhorabuena por la gran idea!
                              Algo que me gustaría es poder desactivar las notificaciones que llegan al correo, pero al mismo tiempo me gustaría conservarlos en la aplicación, pero solo me deja o activar o desactivar del todo, nose si me explico bien, espero que me podáis entender.
                              Gracias, y un saludo.

                                There should be a way of turning comments off for family members so they only see pictures.

                                  • Make it clearer that you should create an account in order to view a child's Lifecake when invited

                                    The issue was that the process of creating a profile THEN associating the
                                    profile with the invite was not clear. The necessary order of steps is: 1)
                                    create your own, unaffiliated, uninvited, account. 2) input your account
                                    email address to access the invitation/receive additional storage space.

                                    The assumption that account creation THROUGH the invitation would afford
                                    perks not afforded through an uninvited account creation was the source of
                                    the problem.

                                    Essentially, something should be added to the descriptive process for users
                                    so that it is clear that the creation of an account is required before
                                    accepting an invitation and/or receiving…

                                    • Disable parents ability to edit family/friends comments

                                      ''To be honest, I don't think it's fair for the parents to be able to edit the comments from family/friends. By doing this, the parents can completely change the meaning of what family/friends say in the comment and they'll be responsible for the updated message as it would be signed with their name.
                                      As I said, I understand the need for the parents to delete comments sometimes (inappropriate, confidential or insulting messages) but I think parents shouldn't be allowed to edit comments from other people.

                                        • Request tag for own child

                                          I was wondering if there are plans in the work to add the ability to request a tag in a photo.
                                          Recently my friends parents uploaded a photo of her son and mine to lifecake, it's a lovely photo but my son isn't tagged in it, so non of my relatives (followers) can see it. I can txt the original uploader and ask them to tag him at their end, but it would be nice to have this feature in the app.
