Gift registry purchases need to be trackable/attributable to registrants
1) As of now, there is no way for people who register for gifts to know who purchased the gifts for them. This seems to me something that is very fundamental for any gift registry.
2) Also there should be a way for people who purchase a gift for someone else through a registry to write them a message and have it show up in the registrants account under the purchased gift.
3) The website admin should be able to see in the order if it was through a registry, and which registry.
Almost six years later and this is still desperately needed!
The functionality that Josh outlined should be considered "fixes" to flawed software and not "features." 3dcart's Gift Registry module is worthless without these basic, and frankly standard, gift registry functions. Gift registries, dating back to pre-computer manual department store era, have always had these abilities.

Agree strongly with points one and three. Not so much for point two - maybe I do not understand what the writer means.
