We just launched a new version of MyPunchbowl.com, and we’re pretty psyched about the new features and functionality. My favorite new feature is the ability to “Try it Out” before you create an account. I don’t know about you, but I really don’t like sites that force you to sign up just to have a look around. We went one step further with our “Try it Out” functionality: you can create a ‘save the date’ or an invite, and if you decide to create an account you can pick up where you left off.
Here are some of the other key new features:
- Flexible RSVP options: allows the host to decide whether the guest list can be seen by guests. Hosts have complete flexibility and can change the options at any time
- “Try it out”: provides a simple way to try the application without the need to create an account
- YouTube integration: Add YouTube videos to your MyPunchbowl After Party
- Preview “Save the Date” and “Invitation” emails before they are sent
- Guests can now track parties they are invited to using MyPunchbowl, eliminating the need to keep the invitation email
- Customize your party map and save the zoom level, and type of map
- View parties planned across the country in the MyPunchbowl Party Nation map
- Useful “Reasons to Party” and “Plan Ahead” calendar of holidays and events
- Interactive messages provide users with feedback throughout the unique workflow-based user interface
- Update your email and password in “Your Account” settings
- Support for foreign language characters
What’s your favorite new feature? Would love to hear your thoughts about the new version.
