  1. Log in should default to username and password

    I shouldn't have to click through 4+ things just to get logged in to Lifecake. The default should be username and password, ideally on the main page already. Non standard methods of logging in should require further clicking, not the other way around.

    • Show children side by side at same age

      Hi
      It would be great if I could show the timelines of both of my children side-by-side, so I can see photos of each at the same age, even though they are 4 years apart. Or filter by child age or something so the timeline shows photos in child age order rather than in date order. I want to see what my daughter looked like at age 1 next to my son at the same age.

      • 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

        • Be able to see how many people viewed a photo or video if they selected it

          I would like to see how many people viewed or played back a video/photo I posted. This gives me an idea of what to post in the future. This would only work if someone clicked on the image or photo.

          • 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.

            • Link to Facebook contacts

              Link to Facebook contacts so you can invite family and friends whose email address you do not have.

                • Create a filter so that you can see only videos / only photos or all. A great addition would be a video reel - auto playback of all videos.

                  Videos are too hard to find - having to scroll through your many photos to find the few videos that you have is no fun!

                  As a parent-Lifecake user I would like to select a filter so that I can see only videos / only photos or all. Preferably I would also be able to select which child I would like the filter to be applied to.

                  A great addition would be a video reel - playback of all videos of your child from birth to the last video uploaded. Ideal when the family are over and you wish to…

                      Can you make the slideshow/flashbacks more editable, for example choosing weather to go from birth onwards or from the present backwards, and being able to add music etc.

                      • give more room for picture titles

                        Since many of us (including me) pay for the premium version, I would love to have more than 50 characters for the titles :) I would also LOVE to be able to add titles during upload :-D

                        • Allow captions on photos

                          Currently I can't see how to put any captions on photos, we are just writing in the comments of each photo. But it's not as impactful since you don't notice the comments right away and have to look further to see them.

                                        I think Lifecake is awesome I just wish there was a way to sort the videos. I would like to be able to see the videos by themselves.

                                          Hi
                                          Many thanks for the feedback. It is a great idea. Let’s see what traction this idea gets in the forum and once we see some good votes we’ll get working on it.

                                          Thanks,
                                          Ed & the Lifecake team
