Spanish term or phrase:a secas
This is from the help section of a a social networking site (for teens/kids), in a description of how to send a "friend request". You can "mandar la invitación "a secas" o agregarle un mensaje que tu amigo leerá cuando reciba tu pedido." I understand that this means to send the automatic request message alone, without adding a personal message, but I'm completely blanking out about how you would express this in English.
