Icons Changed

Has anyone else icons for guests changed? Previously the icons were male/female or child pics, now it is just a grey icon, which makes it harder to identify the guest type, especially on the seating plan tool.

    Hey Charlotte!

    I'm Helen, the deputy editor at Hitched. We've actually recently changed this for everyone - we got quite a few messages from couples whose guests didn't identify as male or female and they didn't like having to put them into those categories. We decided to remove the section where you pick the gender of your guest so you'll see these new grey icons with your guests' names next to them instead.

    We're always working hard to make the site more inclusive and I hope it doesn't affect your seating chart planning too much. If you can't see your guests' name then let me know and we can get one of our tech team to look into it!

    Thanks,

    Helen x

    Thanks for the reply Helen, and fully understand the reasoning, I guess it was just easier to see with the colours. Maybe Hitched could look at an option to assign different colours to icons so give choice to brides to help ease the planning visually, or keep the male female and add an option for non gender specific, so that is inclusive for all identities? but no worries if not an option

    Hi, is there a way to change the genders at all? Because on my analytics it seems to have assigned gender anyway, but in a very odd way. It says there are
    0 female, 42 male and 119 unassigned. Is it going my name? Is it random?

    Not now, when you go in to a guest profile there is no option so I suspect the analytics was partial merged over when they changed it. You can see Adult vs Children numbers but not gender specifics
