When using the *Groups* page for group management, you may see names in the column next to the email addresses. These names are automatically added by our system when you import contacts from your address book or csv file. If one of your contacts has an account on our site associated with a name that is *different* than the name you have listed in your contacts, our system will override your entry and put the account name in that field.

If you manually enter an email address, and a user has an account with us, the name on the account associated with that email address will automatically be displayed. If the email does not have an account, no name will be displayed.

You cannot add or edit the names in this area of the site.

Thank you so much for writing in and I apologize for any inappropriate advertisement you received in your email/invite. We absolutely do not approve of any inappropriate advertising on our site and we have filtering in place that is supposed to prevent inappropriate ads. That being said, there is no way to absolutely guarantee that an inappropriate ad will never show on a sign up/email/invite unless you are using a Pro subscription that removes advertising from all sign ups. In other cases, if we we have someone complain about a specific advertisement, we work to pinpoint the ad and have that ad removed. If you could email our support team with a screenshot or more information regarding the ad, someone from that team will be happy to work with you to have the ad removed. Thank you for alerting us to the issue.

I am creating a new sign up and have a list of names with email addresses. I have entered the email addresses, but am not seeing a way to add their names. I'd appreciate instructions as to how to enter names.

I noticed that advertising is attached to the end of emails received by my invitees. "Bridget Jones's Baby" is inappropriate and vulgar for any audience, but most especially for the religion teachers that my signups target. If it continues, this will be the last time I use SignupGenius. Please, keep it wholesome.
