  3. Invite's permissions

    I have invited someone to my lifecake posts, just to learn that he could also add pictures, delete mine and do whatever he wants.

    Really do not like that idea! Would love to invite more people, but only if I can decide what they can do to the account (definitely not just anything!).

    I don't even mind they can add pictures, but I would like to have the control to choose if they are okay to add. I ask my invite to add pictures and I didn't even get a message he added pictures!

    Love the app, but only if…

  4. Improve Web Uploader Stability

    When uploading images, the uploader often stalls then fails. Usually I'm uploading using the website on the Chrome browser. Testing of my internet connection shows that I have a 2Mbps upload speed when the uploader has failed. Please improve the stability of the website uploader.

  5. Add drag and drop to reorganise timeline photos

    So the extra shots in the drawer below the timeline can be dragged onto the timeline to replace those selected automatically. But when I drag a replacement photo from the drawer to the timeline, there is a pre-determined order that the photos are displayed in. This is actually a bit annoying! It would be far better if I could drag and drop the exact image I want from the drawer and onto the exact thumbnail where I'd like it displayed.

    We’re so sorry about the delay in responding on this, James. We are looking at our Website and looking to change quite a few things, and we’ll update here when we have a test version. We’d love to get everyone’s feedback!

  6. Compare two children at the same age

    Compare two children at the same age. For example, compare my older sons photos from when he was one month old to our younger sons one month old photo. I love time travel feature you have and think this would be an even more awesome improvement!

  7. Include the comment and the author in email notifications like it was before

    At some point the emails stopped including the comment and author. Now every time someone says something I have to open he web page/app to see who posted what. Before this change it was very convenient to track all activities in my email and open the app only when I needed to actually do something myself with it. Or maybe make it configurable.

  8. Provide a referral code to invite friends or share on social media

    If you want to invite friends to try out Lifecake, but don't have their email address or want to use the automated form, perhaps you could provide a unique referral code or link which they can use when signing up?

    HI, Meg! So sorry for the delay in responding to this. We’ve been thinking about your suggestion and how to make it easier to invite loved ones.

    The challenge is always balancing our need for complete security with the desire to make everything with lifecake fun and easy. The shared link is great for the latter but not as good on the former. But we will keep working on this!

    Thanks so much for the great suggestion.

  9. When you untick another family members added child, the associated comments should disappear as well as pics

    Once you have accepted an invitation from a family member to add their child to your timeline you see their pictures and comments alongside your own. If you just want to then view your own childs pics you can untick any other child names and the pics disappear leaving just your child, but all their comments are still there.

  11. Then and Now

    I really love the Then and Now's that you send to my email. I wish there were a way that you could do them in the timeline or as another option to save the ones that you have sent so we can download them and send them to others who do not have this. Also the adding music is cool but I do not have (nor do I plan on getting) an Iphone it would be cool if we could do it at least on the website.

    Thanks so much for this suggestion and so sorry for the delay. We have talked about this in the team a lot in the past – we’d love to do this – and it’s something we’re evaluating. We’ll update here when we know more about this.

    Please keep the suggestions coming!

  13. Add option to include audio files

    I have audio files of my daughter singing laughing cooing as a baby. I'd like it if these audio files can be added and date stamped in the timeline like everything else

    Thanks for the suggestion, and apologies for the delay in responding!

    We’ve had lots of discussions about this as a team – as we can absolutely see the value – but we’re not sure when we will add this yet. But we will update here when we have news!

  14. Allow users to remove themselves from other albums

    If you're added and accept a friends request to join their album and get their updates and images, there is no way to LEAVE that album. You can opt-out of seeing their updates and photos, but without e-Mailing customer support, you can't leave the album entirely.

    There should be an option, a quick hit button, to simply leave the album.

  18. Show all photos on the computer version at once, as they are displayed on the mobile version

    Friends and am often complain they miss photos Ive posted. I think one son for this is the way it is set up where they have to click on the group of photos below the 'film strip'.

  19. Give admins control over notification defaults

    The admin (me) should set up the notification defaults for people whom I add. My mom and dad and other elderly relatives aren't technologically savvy, and so when I add them, they'll get notifications on their smartphones as well as an email. I know them well enough to know that they don't want both, so it would be kind of nice if I could remotely set their notification preferences with an understanding that they could make changes if they decided to figure out how to do that.

  20. Allow lifecakes for Friends and Family

    Its great that you can easily show the photos of a set or individual children, but wouldn't it make sense to have the parents and other family members or friends identified/filterable as well?

    I suppose I could add them as 'another child', but they might not be so keen on having their age displayed as a constant reminder of the decrepitude (I am including myself here).

    I suppose tags could be used, but I like the idea of seeing their little photo and selecting them.

    Thanks, Adam! We actually made the dates go way back in time, so people could do exactly that: create lifecakes for older family members. (One of our team is actually creating a lifecake for his grandpa for his 90th birthday present this summer :-)

    But we hadn’t thought about the birthdate being something people might not want to advertise, Good point! We will have a think about that at our team dinner on Monday and see what we can think of.

    Keep the great ideas coming!
