Google Docs Guestlist

This plugin allows you to add RSVP and guestlist functionality. Guests can leave custom messages for the planners. Uses Google Docs spreadsheets.

This plugin allows you to add RSVP and guestlist functionality to your WordPress site. It tracks RSVPs for ceremony and banquet. Additionally, guests can leave custom messages for the planners. The guestlist is maintained with a Google Docs spreadsheet which is very easy to use.

It was originally designed to be a wedding guestlist that I made for a friend (congratulations to Mike & Di!).

Features Bulletlist:

* Customizable RSVP page
* Connects to Google Docs Spreadsheet for guestlist
* Planners can write custom messages to guests
* Guests can send custom message to planners
* Email updates are sent to the planner
* Wedding features: Records responses for Ceremony, Banquet, or Hotel Reservations

Instructions

  1. Using a Google account, create a new Spreadsheet at docs.google.com
  2. The spreadsheet must have the following 7 headers: Guest Name, Code, Custom Message for Guest, Ceremony, Banquet, Message from Guest, Hotel
  3. Fill in the guestlist with names, codes, and an optional custom message. Make sure the code is not guessable, for example: short numeric codes are probably a bad idea. A nosy guest might punch in random numbers and see guest information.
  4. Download, unzip, upload, and activate your plugin.
  5. In your WordPress site, go to "Settings->Google Docs Guestlist" and fill in the account information and Google Docs title and sheet information.
  6. Create a new wordpress Page and put the text: wpgc-googledocsguestlist in the content box. The plugin will replace it with the RSVP code.
  7. Now, guests can type in a code and fill out the reservation form, which will send an email to you and update the spreadsheet. Note: Once guests have filled out the form, their RSVP code is no longer usable.

Thank you! Good luck with your planning efforts. Remember to allow guests to contact you in other ways in case of digital emergencies.

We look forward to any comments. If there is a good response, we may incorporate your suggestions into the next version.
