Add user/friend to trip?

Travel Forums System Talk Add user/friend to trip?

Is there any way to add another user to a trip we're taking together? I'm the one who's got the travel map, and I'm wondering if I can somehow link the map to her profile, so she doesn't have to make it up for herself all over again! Help?

At the moment, unfortunately, no. :(

About the best I can think of at the moment is for her to start a blog (named something like "my travel map") with a single entry which includes a link to your trip. That way people can relatively easily click through from her profile to the map. (One click if that weblog entry is the latest one, and thus shows directly on the profile page - two clicks otherwise.)

You're the second person I've seen request this in the last week though, so I suspect we'll be doing some thinking on ways to easily allow trip sharing.

Yeah, it's interesting to see such a similar request :)

I think an option to 'Duplicate this trip' might be interesting. It could copy all locations (and optionally dates) as one of your own trips. This way it might also have a broader use as a way of planning your own trip, ie.. you could find someone's cool looking trip and, duplicate it and quickly create your own itinerary based on the other one..

It's not going to happen in a hurry, but if there are enough people interested in it, it definitely could end up on the to-do list

Hmmm. . . Sounds like a good plan for the near future. "Duplicate this trip" is good. How about "Add a friend to this trip"? (must be user of course.)

Sounds like that's what they're looking for.

Thanks so much, gentleman. Sorry to hear that it's not up and running yet, but I'm sure you'll get the best things going in time! Muchos gracias

I warmly applaud this idea, and I think that cellolover's suggestion to deal with it is excellent; little extra programming, as far I could tell, and a real nice possibility to link oneself to other members, thereby strengthening the ties within the TP community. This deserves to end up high on the list, guys :)

This function would be very appreciated. I were just looking for a link which said "Add friend to this trip" and got quite sad when I couldn't find one.
