The New GICS Website: Using Wishlists

One of the many great features of the new and improved GICS Website is that you can now create several extensive Wishlists.

A Wishlist can be a group of items that you want to buy for a specific purpose, for that dream AR-15 Build you’ve always wanted, the perfect sport shooting loadout perhaps, or just a general list of things you want to purchase. With your GICS Website profile you can create multiple Wishlists for all kinds of projects or purposes.

In this walkthrough we’ll show you how to create a Wishlist and what you can do with it once complete.

Step 1: Creating the Wishlist

Once you have logged in to the GICS Website, go to your account profile page. This can be found at the top right of the screen, next to the “Log Out” button. Once inside your account profile, you will see there are various account management options to click. In this list you will find “My Wishlists”.
Click this to go to your Wishlist Management screen.

Once there, if you have never done this before, you will see no Wishlists and you will now create one. Simply type the name of your Wishlist into the dialogue box and save it.
For the purposes of this tutorial we are going to create a Wishlist called “Bug Out Bag” and group things we feel should be in our ideal emergency kit bag. But of course, you can create any Wishlist you like. You can create multiple Wishlists for different projects, so feel free to create more than one.
Once you have done this, you are now ready to browse through the product pages and add items to your Wishlist. 
Step 2: Adding Items to your Wishlist
When you come across an item you like and want to add to one of your Wishlists, its as easy as a couple of clicks.

1. Simply select all the attributes you would ordinarily select when buying a product (ie: Colour, Size, etc.).

2. Select the Quantity you want to save on your Wishlist.

3. Use the drop down menu to select which Wishlist you want to save this item under. (If you have more than one.)

4. Click on the “Add to my Wishlist” button to save the item.
It’s that easy. Once successfully added, a pop up box will confirm your addition to the Wishlist and ask if you wish to continue browsing.
Step 3: Managing your Wishlist
Once you have browsed the website and added all your desired items to your Wishlist, you might want to review your selections, make changes or show your Wishlist to others. This can be done from the Wishlist Management screen in your Account Profile, where we created the Wishlist earlier.

Now, when you click on your Wishlist, it will display all the items you saved. Here you can change the quantity of each item, delete items, or assign a priority status to each item. Remember to save your changes once you have finished!

From here you can also share your wishlist with friends in one of two ways.

By clicking the “Send this Wishlist” button, you will open up a window at the bottom of the screen (Underneath all the products.) where you can enter up to 10 email addresses. Simply enter which email addresses you want to send your Wishlist to and click “Send”. Your friends will then receive an official GICS Email with a link to your Wishlist in it.
The second option for sharing your wishlist is via the permalink. Copy and Paste the link to emails, forums, Facebook, Twitter, or instant messages to show your friends your Wishlist!

Managing a Wishlist has never been easier!
