Using points for family/friends

I like how easy it is to make a reservation using rewards points for myself, but when I use them for family and friends I must call Marriott rewards.  I would really appreciate being able to log into my account, make a reservation using points, and change the name on the reservation/certificate right there.  Right now I make the reservation in my name, then call reservations, they change the name on the reservation, then they transfer me to MR so they can reissue the certificate in the new name.  Any chance we can simplify this process so that it can be done online??
