How can family / group members be added to a group (3 ways)?
To add members to a group, click on Groups in the blue bar and then click on 'Add Members' next to your group name.
There are three ways to signup family or group members. The first way is to actually create the account for the person. This option is great for children and not so active family members.
The second way to add members to your group is to search and add existing Tallwish members to your group.
The third way to add members to your group is to send them an email invitation. The invitation will include a link to join your group.
How can I join an existing group?
To join an existing group, have a member of the existing group send you an invite email.
The email will contain a link. Click on the link and it will take you to the Tallwish login screen. Login to Tallwish and you are now part of the group.

What are 'Shared Docs'?
'Shared Docs' are Shared Documents that members of the group can view and edit. For example, a member may create a 'Nathan Party Menu' shared document that would list what food item every person is bringing to the party.

Yes. Hover, or place, the mouse over the word 'Taken' and the name of the person who reserved the item will pop up.
Can wish list items come from any store?
Yes, wish list items can come from any store, online or offline. There does not even have to be a store associated with an item which is the case with handmade crafts.
Can anyone on the internet search for my list?
No, not everyone on the internet can see your wish list. Only members of your group can see your wish list. This maintains your privacy.

To turn On the Item Finder, click on "Show Item Finder" under an item.
How can guests see my list?
A guest can see your list by creating a guest account. To create a guest account, select the green 'Group' menu choice, then select the 'Add a Member' tab. Guests can see wish lists by logging in using the guest account.
The guest account will maintain the privacy of your list from being accessed by anyone on the internet.
What is the Secret Suggester?

For example, if a parent has suggestions for their kids, they can click 'Add a Secret Suggestion' above the member's wish list to add a secret suggestion. The member who is receiving the secret suggestion will not see it.
