  1. Log for members who unsubscribe

    I would like to be able to easily distinguish between members that actually select "unsubscribe" to emails vs. those that are automatically unsubscribed due to multiple email failures.

    That way we could more easily contact those that may have simply changed their email address, from the ones that really don't want to hear from us anymore.

    I'm not sure how to tell this the way it works now.

  2. Different membership renewal reminders for auto-renewal

    I would love to be able to send a different reminder email for those members who are set up for automatic renewal. I get a lot of negative feedback from members who are getting the three reminder emails regarding their membership when they are set up for automatic renewal. I do put text in bold to disregard the message if they are set up for automatic renewals, but it doesn't really seem to penetrate. I would like to see a different email that I could send to them; something like, "Your membership is set up to automatically renew in two…

  3. Automatic emails

    I could sure use a list of every action that generates an automatic email and how to turn automatic emails off. Of course, I'd really like a general off switch for all automatic emails.

  4. More Event Macros available for general email templates

    We would like to be able to add the Event Macro 'Registration Buttons' to regular emails. As it is now it is only available in the 'Event Emails'. We use several email templates which we have prepared to publicize our event. It would be really helpful to have more of the event macros available in the General Email templates.

  5. More Email Templates!

    Love the templates -- but want more! Like back to school, President's Day, Woman's History Month that kind of stuff... Would also like more membership samples for renewal notices, profile update, membership drives...oh and some with imagery for events that has more of a business focus. And lastly perhaps some more inclusive variations for some of the holiday templates. Example - Christmas is a religious holiday that is not recognized by some and is not necessarily appropriate to send. Since it is not common to know what holiday they would observe, and it would be nice to start with a…

  6. option to easily unsubscribe from all emails

    When people hit the "unsubscribe" link at the bottom of an email, it would be good, as a checkbox option on the page they land on, to allow them to unsubscribe from all emails, not just newsletters. I suspect some of our contacts will not be happy if they still receive event notifications when they intended to unsubscribe fully. I don't think that one should ask them to login to do this (from their full profile). At present, we will need to manually check for these people and remove them from other mailings.

    PS. It would also be good if…

  7. Macros in the Email Editor

    Whenever we view an email in the system, any macro appears with a yellow highlight. When we go into edit mode the highlight goes away and we only have the curly braces (as in {macro}) to indicate where the macros are.

    However, if a database column has its header changed, all macros that refer to that column now fail quietly and the {incorrectmacroname} and its curly braces are sent to the recipient. This looks very unprofessional and it would be good if we had a better way to detect the error.

    How about: Wherever a text string surrounded…

  8. email alias

    Need to be able to have email alias. i.e. president@organization.org that will forward an email to a particular member (i.e. me@gmail.com) or group of members i.e. executiveboard@organization.org that will forward to a group of members.

  10. Email wizard: open discussion of recent changes

    Hello,

    my name is Andrew, and I’m a member of emailing development crew at Wild Apricot.

    I want to thank you for your feedback about new compose email wizard feature. In this thread I would like to explain the reasons and goals behind emailing facelift and workflow changes that we’ve done in release 5.8 - https://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Release+5.8

    Our main goal is to make composing mass email as easy as possible. As we planned to release new features such as scheduling, selecting and using email templates, smart recipient selection, custom layouts and many others, we realised that we cannot have them all…

  11. Stop applying website styles to emails when composing

    Currently when composing an email you cannot tell if it is styled properly as website styles are applied in the composition window.

    E.g. my website text is Open Sans 16pt and I want to send an email in Open Sans 16pt. It looks like it is already formatted that way when composing, because website styles are applied. When a test email arrives in my inbox the text might be a mix of styled and unstyled. (Also, the font indicator in the email composer is unreliable.)

    I can't think of any good reason for it to be set up this way.

  12. Make typography of emails match typography of the website

    When composing emails, the fonts and sizes of the various styles: Heading 1..., body, whatever, don't match the typography set up as the default for the website. So a Heading 1 on the website itself might be Verdana 18 pt Red, but in an email it might be Times Roman (uuggghh!) 18 pt Black.

    Could the typography in the Emails match that of the website?

    Thanks!

  13. Email Forward Option

    Within our membership renewal reminder email, we would like to include a link that says "Send to a Colleague" which forwards the email to other non-members. When you click on the link, a new window opens with the ability to enter multiple email addresses and enter a personalized message. The original email and your message is then forwarded to these recipients.

  14. HTML

    1) Bring back the HTML button in the toolbar at the top of the e-mail editor. Having to delete the default text box and add the HTML widget seems pretty lame to me.

    2) Bring in the ability to double-click on the e-mail text when you come back to edit an e-mail. Having to go over to the right and click on the button to change the HTML code isn’t very intuitive.

    3) Wrap the text in the HTML editor window.

  15. Professionalize email Unsubscribe process and let us change opt-out instructions. In many ways the opt-out process is incomplete ...)

    Professionalize email Unsubscribe process and let us change opt-out instructions. In many ways the opt-out process is incomplete (at best) and (at worst) amateurish. Professional marketers would be embarrassed at the omissions, awkwardness and inconsistencies as things stand now. And WA wants us to look as professional as it does, right?

    UNSUBSCRIBE LINK TARGET PAGE:

    We can add custom language explaining that we have "two lists" and that the button applies only to the type of email they clicked on. But then the system concludes by saying, "do you want to unsubscribe from email blasts?" Huh? For starters, some of…

  16. email list forwarding

    I like being able to send email to our list of members, and I like being able to have them maintain their own contact info via their profile.

    I hate your email/HTML editing tool, it's just horrible.

    Can you please give me a way to simply have an email list address to which I can send an email from my favorite email client and it will forward to the membership list? I don't really care about link or open tracking.

    Example: send an email to members@mydomain.com. It forwards to all members (or whatever search subset I define when I…

  17. email failures

    simpler variation of email failures suggestion.
    Tech support recommended I make this feature request. Since failing emails are logged to an email failure page, If any outgoing email(s) fail(s} notify the admin or a preset role to view the email failure page. Only 1 notifiication need be sent per day. The admin can then logon and fix automatic emails or notify a user why their email failed. This will prevent the admin from having to log on each day or from getting tons of emails if there are multiple failures.

  18. From Email without Web Hosting

    We need the ability to set the "From email" to an email at our own domain without setting Wild Apricot as our website host. We do not want to host our website with WA, we are happy with our current hosting and design. We want WA to be utilized to manage our membership and send out emails. Emails coming from "******@wildapricot.org" are getting flagged as possible phishing emails since our members have not received emails from this address previously.

  19. Social Media Icons

    Is there any way to include social media icons to be linked to social profiles? Is this something that would have to be inserted, one at a time, as separate image gadgets once I download the social media icon images from another site? It would be nice to have this as a gadget, like the website side offers.

  20. membership certificate - mail merge

    I need a way to send an email with a different attachment or link to each email address- kind of like a mail merge. I have a PDF membership certificate, I need to send to each member. each one is personalized with their name. We don’t use outlook, and I’m having a nightmare getting a merge to work on Google mail.
