Invite Cheat Sheet
This cheat sheet will guide you on creating an invitation, this includes adding of emails to a list, editing the invite, and sending it.
How to add emails to your list
Usually, people just put all of their emails in the default list, but they also create new and customized lists like 'Family', 'Friends', or 'Guests'. You can also delete a list if you want.
To know how to add a list, you can visit this guide https://help.webbabyshower.com/341509-How-to-Add-Lists-and-Emails
In adding emails, we have two ways to do it.
First is by uploading a CSV file and the second is by copy and pasting your emails into the box manually. (We recommend the second way as it gives a more certain result than uploading the list)
In sending invites, we only need emails so it is okay if you won't include the names anymore.
When do we use the 'Default List'?
If you want a less complicated way of a list, you can just use the default list. Most people use it as it is simpler and you can just keep on adding emails to it.
When to make multiple lists?
When you want different people to get different invites, you can create multiple lists. In every invite, you can just choose which list you want it to be sent.
How to make multiple lists
Go to > Host Control Panel Dashboard > Invitations > Lists
Click > Add New
Input the name and description (optional) of your list, click Save.
Repeat the process if you want to add more.
How to create an invite
In your host control panel dashboard, go to Invitation > New Message. Usually, your invitation template will be either the default one or the template you chose through the setup wizard, but you can, of course, change it if you want.
