Friend Import

By Jack Watling, 2 years ago
With the huge number of friends that you can have on Xbox Live, we felt it was a bit of a chore to keep up with which of your friends are on site and which are not, and even more of a chore to easily add them.

So, after a bit of elbow grease we've added a new Import Friends page to your TA friend managing arsenal!

Simply visit the page and hit the "Import Xbox Live friends" button. We'll then grab your current Xbox Live friends and display them all in one big list.

The add column to the right of the list allows you to easily send out multiple friend requests in one go. Just check each box you want and then press the "Send friend requests" button at the bottom of the page.

If there is an icon displayed in the add column instead then you're either already friends, you've already sent a friend request, or you've received a friend request from the gamer (hover over the icons if you're unsure). If it's the latter option then you can click on the icon to jump straight to the handle invite page.

You can even invite friends that aren't on the site with the "Invite via email" button. Click on this and it will transform into a text box; just enter their email address and hit the enter button.

Finding your friends in the list can still be tricky if you're popular, like us wink, so we've even added a quick "Search gamertag" filter at the top of the page to help pinpoint specific people. Start typing there and it will hide anyone from the list that doesn't match your entry.

Please note, in order for us to grab your friends list you'll need to make your friends list publicly visible. You can do this via the account settings page.

The page is live now and can be accessed here. Let us know what you think of the feature below.

Thanks! toast
