Idea Boards are shared discussion groups. In them, you share a space with the receiver’s friends and others who are like-minded in getting them a gift.
There is one master shared Board for every person on Giftovus and each of your Facebook Friends. Any one of the receiver’s Facebook friends can instantly join the board. People may also join the Board if they are invited by someone already in the Board.
Your “My Wishlist” board is actually your view into the shared Board about you. Whatever you post there will be displayed for the people who view your Board. They can discuss, add Options, claim gifts, etc, to stuff that you posted to your wishlist and you won’t know about it.
You should feel free to post whatever you like to a board in terms of Ideas - you won’t be disturbing anyone – it’s a shared space. Emails are only sent out to the creators of the Ideas when someone comments or adds an Option (learn more about emails here).
You can use the “Need a new board?” button to create a Board that is for a child, grandparent, or someone who isn’t on Giftovus or Facebook. When setting up the board, if you add in the email for the receiver, when that person signs up to Giftovus using that email address, we will associate the board you created with them and you’ll see their wish list.
Email addresses are optional though. Power User tip: you can create a “private” board by leaving out the email address.
