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.Katy commented
Even an option for people to request an invite would be great - you could then approve or deny requests. I'm moving all baby photos from social media to Lifecake, but it's not practical for me to send invites to everyone in my large extended family. I would love for those who are interested to be able to easily request an invite.
Hi Mark! This is a great idea. You’re right in that today many people do this via our ‘stories’ feature but we could significantly improve the experience here. We’re exploring this idea of ‘milestones’ – we have a D.O.B marker but could expand it to include many of the key facts & stats you mention.
We definitely plan to add this in the future, and we will update here when we have it.
Thanks for your patience in the meantime!
Thanks a lot, Marcia! We will discuss this and see if there might be a way to do this in a simple way. We absolutely understand the desire to tailor communications for family members.
