  1. 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.

      Hello,

      We wanted to give you an update on this suggestion and we think we owe you a bit of an apology on this matter. As we have been looking into this further, it seems that we were a little over ambitious with our original estimate of when we might be able to deliver it.

      To be honest we have been working really hard and since we became part of the Canon family not everything we have planned to be developed went in accordance to our expectations.

      We definitely do want to add this feature and we acknowledge a lot of our users would like to see it built into Lifecake and we can assure you that we’ll get it onto our roadmap, just as soon as we have the time and the resources to build it.

      Many thanks for your patience and loyalty.

      Ed & the Lifecake Team.

    • Make some family viewers only

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

      • Less security measures

        Lifecake as it functions right now is very challenging for my non-techy relatives. There are so many security measures and when they try to use multiple devices to login it confuses them even more. I have been wasting tons of time resigning up for them but because we're in different cities it messy with their devices. No one is going to hack into a photo sharing app so I think it's all overkill. Please work to make Lifecake more user friendly. I love the concept because it's so much more simple for the person uploading photos but way too complicated…

        • Limit number of "Favorites"

          In-laws "favorite" every single picture we upload. It would be nice to be able to limit the number of favorites certain (or all) invitees can use.

          • Send invitations with better instructions

            The accept link should automatically include the child’s page information so guests are not forced to “Add a Child”. Family members don’t want to add a child, they just want to see pictures of a child, so this step is scaring them from continuing with the process. Also, many family members do not want to download the app - they would prefer to use their computer and access the pictures over the website, so making them download the app first will turn many of us away from this product. Thanks.

              • Give parents ability to turn off emails/notifications to specific people!

                Give primary account holder (parent) ability to select who gets notifications and emails so not all people get them.
                Also- only send 1 notification email per day NOT per addition, comment or like

                            • Diary text msg reminder

                              Hello my wonderful Life cake creators!

                              I came across an app called Qeepsake. They are doing this text Msg reminder daily with a question about your baby/child that you'll answer and it will be saved in the baby's diary, which I love! It's a great way of reminding yourself to jot things down in your diary not to miss a day. Here is and example of it

                              Good going. That's another journal entry for Bastian.
                              In what ways is Bastian most like you?
                              His smile and his bubbly character is more me. He's very caring and loving like his dad.…

                                Just provide a middle option for those that don't want to go unlimited but would still benefit from more storage.

This would be very useful as some viewers of my library I dont want having complete access to download the library

                                        I'd love to be able to see or be notified when someone downloads or
                                        makes a copy of a picture or video.

                                        • 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.
