When an entry is added to my address list... do THIS

May 17, 2017, 1:40 p.m. New Features Tips

Did you know you can connect your ineedyouraddress.com address list to pretty much anything else out there?

It's really simple and you don't need to be a developer to do this!

Create a free account (or login to your existing one) at Zapier.com (If you haven't heard of zapier... where have you been?!)

From there you can setup a "trigger" and an "action".

When this happens, do this.

People are actually automating their Wedding Invites and "Save the Dates" this way.

For example, when a New Entry is Added, then Send a Wedding Invite to the address.

Go HERE to connect your address list to Zapier.


How to Restore Deleted Addresses

Nov. 16, 2016, 2:19 p.m. New Features How to Tips

As of November 15, 2016, when you delete an address, it is actually just thrown in your trash can instead of permanently deleted.

From the trash, you can either restore it or permanently delete it.

To restore a deleted address...

  1. Click on "Filters".

  2. Scroll to the bottom of the "Filters" popup and click on "Trash".

  3. Select the addresses you want to restore then click "Restore checked Addresses".

Done!

Alternatively, if you really want to delete the address, you can click "Permanently delete checked Addresses". But don't say we didn't warn you! That will remove them for good!

Use Your Own Fonts for Labels and Envelopes!

July 16, 2015, 12:43 p.m. New Features Tips New

You can now upload and use your own fonts for your labels and envelopes.

The file type must be TTF (TrueType Font) and it should have full character support.

You can upload a font by clicking "Upload Font..." which is next to the font choice menu OR go here!

Only you will have access to use the font that you upload.

A good place to find fonts is dafont.com. Make sure you download the TTF version of the font and that the font is free for personal use or that you pay to use it for personal use if the artist requires.


Huge Improvements to Importing Addresses!

July 7, 2015, 4:43 p.m. Enhancements New New Features

We now accept more file types (CSV, vCard, XSLX) and allow you to map your columns to our fields!

You can even merge columns into one field. For example, say you have "First Name" and "Last Name". Just drag and drop your columns onto the "name" field when you are importing and those columns will be merged together.

Our goal has always been to make INYA a joy to use and we hope you like these new improvements!

You can import addresses by tapping "MENU" then "Import Addresses".


New User Interface for a Better Desktop and Mobile Experience

July 7, 2015, 10:17 a.m. New Features Tips New Bug Fixes

We've been hard at work on the latest changes to the interface and hope you like them!

The main changes are around the navigation.

Before there were two different menus that could be confusing to use on the mobile interface. Now the same menu works across the desktop and mobile platform.

Included with this update is several bug fixes, performance updates, and we've now made the Return Address Labels option FREE! The Recipient Address Labels and Envelopes are still -$9.99-.

update The introduction period is over and the price for the Envelopes and Labels Option is $29.99.

Easily Check Your Imported Addresses for Missing Information

Nov. 6, 2014, 11:57 a.m. New Features Tips New Enhancements

We've added a way to quickly find addresses that have missing information.

Control Font Size for Labels & Envelopes

May 10, 2014, 3:19 a.m. Tips Enhancements New Features

You can now control the font size of the labels and envelopes. You'll find the "Bigger" and "Smaller" buttons in Print Envelopes or Print Labels.

We also snuck one other feature in. Sometimes you don't need the recipient's country to be on the label or envelope. (Like when you are in the same country as them) So we added a checkbox to "Include Recipient's Country Info".


You can now collect notes and company names!

May 9, 2014, 5:05 p.m. Enhancements New Features

We just added some new features per your feedback!

You can now display the "notes" field on your website. This means a visitor can leave some extra notes if they'd like. This is turned off by default and you can enable it by checking the box for "Display the 'notes' field on website' at Website Settings and Photos.

We have also added a "company name" field so that visitors can leave a company name if they'd like. This is disabled by default but you can enable it by checking the box for "Display the 'company name' field on website" at Website Settings and Photos.

As always, thank you for the feedback! We hope this website is a joy to use and makes your job easier!


The "tagging" option and what makes it so cool.

March 28, 2014, 11:48 a.m. New Features Tips

We have recently added the ability to "tag" your addresses. Let us tell you why they are so awesome and handy to have.

We made "tags" because for us, we had different groups who needed to get different things with our wedding invites. We had our immediate family who we wanted to send our normal invite too, as well as the ceremony insert. So we made a tag for "ceremony" so that when the time came to print them off, we knew what addresses got the extra goodies and wouldn't have to go searching through them all. We also made a group for "luncheon", so those people would feel extra special that they got to eat with us. It would work for a rehearsal dinner as well!

Tags are such an easy way to organize your addresses and helps differentiate the addresses of family and friends. Soooo cool, we know.

If you are just using iNeedYourAddress for personal use, its useful for you guys too! You can easily tag all your "coworkers" together, as well as "family" and "friends". They all stay in the same address list, and you can view them all at once, or look at the addresses in the individual tags.
