Can I accept an invitation for someone else?

Organizers, Assistants, and Family Managers can accept an invitation to a Gift Exchange on behalf of some accounts. Read on for all the deets.

What Accounts Organizers and Assistants can Accept on Behalf Of

Organizers and Assistants can accept the invitation to a Gift Exchange they have created under the following circumstances:

  • The account is new to Elfster and is unregistered.  When an organizer accepts on behalf of the person, they will receive an email letting them know that the organizer accepted on their behalf.  The account will remain unregistered until the person registers it.
  • The account is registered and has participated in the organizer's groups in the past.  This helps families who know everyone will be participating.
  • If you are able to accept for another person, you will see the "Accept" option in the Manage menu when you tap the + to the right of their name.
