  2. Organizing a Gift Exchange

What can an organizer do if someone doesn't send a gift?

" 'Tis better to give than receive " so the saying goes, but it's no fun to be the draw of a No Show.

If a person does not give their gift, the organizer may mark them as a "No Show". This prevents them from joining any future Gift Exchanges with your group until they complete the Gift Exchange they were marked as a "No Show" in.

Marking As a No Show on Laptop, Desktop, Tablet or Mobile

  1. Select the Gift Exchange
  2. Select Manage Participants in the Organizer menu
  3. Find the person by either typing their name in the search bar or scrolling through the list. 
  4. Select the three dots Screen Shot 2020-08-18 at 11.29.50 AM to the right of the name of the person who didn't give a gift.
  5. Select Mark As No Show and confirm.
If a gift is received and the recipient acknowledges receipt, the No-Show mark will automatically be removed. The organizer may also manually remove the No-Show flag by following the steps above.
