  1. Sponsorship vs. Donation

    Most trade associations do not have "fundraisers" but more so "sponsors" the system needs to allow for this and create invoices for it. There is to much back end rigging needed to offer annual sponsorships & event sponsorships.

      • Enhance Event Module for more complex events like conference & convention set up

        to allow admin to add more detail rather than the only area being the description box. Similar to Systems like yourmembership.com Wild apricot is not sophisticated enough to handle complex details for events. Need more ability to add things like hotel information, speaker headshots, bio's, exhibitor lists, exhibitor floor plans, conference sessions, tiered registration options for attendees, guest, sponsors, exhibitors. An event page needs to be eye catching, easy for people to register and the ability to market all your event has to offer in order to get people to register.

        • Saved search criteria to show Next Month Renewals

          When creating a saved search for membership renewals, there is an option to have it search on "this month" and "last month" in addition to a few others. But how about a "next month" selection, in order to be on top of upcoming renewals for membership management?

          • track behaviour of members on our website - e.g. what pages are most viewed by various member roles

            We would love to be able to track behaviours of different members on our website. For instance, it would be great to see which pages are most viewed by Accountants (we are a non-profit for professionals) or if our blog post on getting a head as a nurse is actually being read by nurses.

              • Multiple organizers for a single event

                Implement a capability to assign multiple email addresses as organizers to a particular event. Right now, you can only assign 1 organizer to a "particular" event.

                • have a way to delete unused/unwanted tags easily

                  It would be great to be able to delete unused/unwanted tags easily to help streamline and prevent the usage of the wrong tag or having a class be defined improperly.

                  • member summary tweak

                    I presently have 50 membership levels (half of them could be eliminated if we could assign a member to either automatic recurring payments or not without having to create a level for each). Because there are so many levels when once gets to the bottom of the screen with the column totals one can no longer see what the total was for! So could we also have a column header at the bottom of the page as well as at the top.

                    • Allow a single registration type have multiple prices depending on date

                      Currently I have to create separate registration types for each discount code, of which we have three (student plus two types of presenters) and regular registrants, so four total. Add those to the registration times (early, regular, and onsite), and now I have 12 for a single event. Even when I hide the date-based ones, not only is it confusing and unattractive for the registrant, it is also difficult to manage with any little edit since I have to do it 12 times.

                      Ideally, there is a single registration option. The price reflects the date (early, regular, onsite) that I…

                      • Photo Album - Storage Management

                        For some organizations the photo albums are essential but difficult to manage. Creatives need the ability to share their works in images, but may not be capable of managing their storage use effectively. And there are no built-in tools for the administrators to monitor or manage storage use effectively.

                        A quota for storage that could be set at the membership level (and perhaps overridden at the member level for special cases) would help to let members self-manage their storage use.

                        Reporting of storage use by member would also be of benefit to the administrators. Perhaps there is already a tool…

                        • Different Tax Options

                          Taxes - We need to be able to charge different taxes for events and memberships. As it stands in Canada, membership dues are taxed based on the province of residence. Event registrations are taxed per the province in which the meeting takes place. But when holding a meeting in Québec, we need to charge the PST (Provincial Sales Tax) only to the registrants residing in the province of Québec.
                          Our wish is for WA to have one tax option for registration and a second tax option for Registrations.

                            • Linking to documents

                              It would like the ability to link to documents within the default "link" panel rather then having "files" as a unique type.

                              The benefit of linking to documents using the "link" method is that users could select if the document should open in a new window (or not) and also select a button style.

                              Attached is a quick mock-up illustrating how this could look.

                              • Force to log in during event registration when a member email is used

                                Members can register for member-only events without logging in just by entering their email address. Likewise, non-members can register for member-only events by using the email address of any member.
                                There should be a way to force a login before registration or demand a password during registration.
                                I realize that I could create a second calendaring and event system that lives in a members only area but that is just too cumbersome.

                                • have a clear 1 page report that shows the name, event, amount paid, & address of the attendee.

                                  If I need to send a refund to someone (via a check), I have to print a page with their name, address, and amount they paid for our bookkeeper. The way the system is currently set up, I have to capture a screen shot to get all this information on 1 page to print.

                                  • Create a process to write off bad debt

                                    There presently is no defined way to write off a bad debt. If someone owes money and is no longer a member they can be archived but their bad debt remains in accounts receivable. Our solution to keep A/R in check is to create a tender called Bad Debt and then apply that as a payment. Though that works it falsely inflates payments received reports which treats it like money that came in. Soooo, need something like a system created bad debt tender that by default does not show up financial reports as a payment but as what it really…

                                      • Allow to customize Upcoming Events Gadget - choose if to display Date, start time, end time, location...

                                        The Upcoming Events Gadget is a great tool for attracting interest to multiple events in a compact way. It could be more useful with a little more flexibility.

                                        The gadget always displays date, start time and location. Please allow us to choose which of these are displayed: Date, start time, end time, location, and (if it doesn't delay this happening) the first n lines of the event Description (with a "More ..." link at the end).

                                        Almost all our events are at the same location, and the location of the rest is obvious. So displaying the location is just a…

                                        • allow us to send a telephone call blast to notify members on short notice.

                                          Our members are on the road a lot, as travel is a major part of our industry. So, emails get overlooked or don't get seen for 2-3 days sometimes. We've used www.dialmycalls.com to record a voice message and sent out a mass telephone call blast to the members the day of a meeting to remind them, or asking them to respond to an urgent call to action. It would be easier and better if this was function in Wild Apricot, you record a voice clip to file and instead of emailing it out, it would dial all the phone numbers…

                                            This is the first time we’ve seen this suggestion and it’s also the first time I’ve heard of an organization using any kind of autodialer. So we’ll have to wait until we see more interest before we can proceed. Also I suspect SMS, might be a more suitable solution for most organizations (see http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8826112-sms-communications ).

                                            Either way, we’ll need to collect comments :)
