Site Help: Importing your Xbox Live friends list

By Harrison Todd,

We've made it really easy for you to add your Xbox Live friends on TrueAchievements...

How to Import your Xbox Live friends to TrueAchievements

  • Open your Gamer Menu
  • Click on the second tab
  • Click the Import your Xbox Live Friends button
Or click here.

Once on the page, click this button:


After a brief update, the page will update with a list of all your Xbox Live friends, which will be separated into three categories based on your friendship status on TrueAchievements.

Please note, in order for us to import your Xbox Live friends list, you'll need to make your friends list publicly visible. If the page doesn't update to show your Xbox Live friends list after a few seconds, you can check your Xbox Live privacy settings on the Xbox.com account settings page.


What do the icons mean?

In the add/track column of the list, you'll see one of four options based on your current friendship status on TrueAchievements.
  • You're already friends
  • You've sent a friend request to this gamer
  • You've received a friend request from this gamer
  • Tick to send the selected gamer(s) a TA friend request


Xbox Live friends not registered on TrueAchievements

In the registered column of the list, you can invite your Xbox Live friends that aren't registered on TrueAchievements by clicking the Invite by email button. Once clicked, a text box will be displayed. Type in the gamer's email address and then press return to send an invite. The gamer will then receive an emailed invitation to register for an account on TrueAchievements. The link will also include your Gamer ID, which means we'll add them to the total for your site referral badge, and they'll also have a friend request from you waiting in their inbox.



Please note, TA Pro Account members can add site tracking for up to 20 unregistered friends. Standard members can add site tracking for up to three unregistered friends.

Unregistered gamers will only be scanned once per week. If an unregistered gamer decides to register on TrueAchievements in the future, they'll gain control of the orphaned account.

Adding friends

Once you have selected all of the gamers to whom you want to send a friend request, scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Send friend requests button. Each gamer will then receive a PM on TrueAchievements giving them the option to accept or decline your friend request.
