  1. Allow known person to apply for membership

    Allow non-member to apply for membership if they are already known to Wild Apricot. If someone's email is already "known" to Wild Apricot (because they attended an event or paid for something) they cannot apply as a member. We require more info than is in the system but the person cannot login to supply that info until they've been approved. A real catch-22.

    • A way to notify leaders of new membership in their area

      Hello,

      Currently, we have members select a chapter affiliation when they sign up in WA. It would be great if there could be a notification sent to specific people if their chapter was selected.

      For example, we have several chapters that would like to know how many members they attracted and just have a current list in general. I have to pull up a report every so often to give them a list of members who selected their chapter. It would be wonderful if there was a way for me to set up notifications for each chapter so when someone…

      • QR / Barcodes on the Membership Card

        I've just had a look at the membership cards facility. Great development. But I currently print membership badges with the UserID formatted as a barcode (code39). Members are scanned in to meetings with a barcode zapper (the number goes straight into a spreadsheet). Saves the queue at the door.
        So I need the card editor to allow a barcode font - what's the chance?

        • Default values

          I'd like to be able to put default values into membership fields that require data entry - not just those with multi-option. In othe words, if a membership field requires entering a dollar amount, I'd like to set the default to be 0 rather than have the field be empty.

          • Back date renewal date to date of lapse when renewing

            Right now, when a membership expires and is renewed past the expiration date, the renewal date is set from the date the member renews, (rather than the date the membership expired).

            We would appreciate the following option: If a membership lapses the next renewal date is set to one period from the date the membership lapsed. (not the date that the membership is reactivated)

            (The following example was copied from another thread on charging a late fee for past due memberships and represents our situation)

            "In our case what happens at the moment is that some people wait until after…

            • Membership renewal when registering for an event

              Hi, we're just into our second year with wild apricot and our members are starting to renew their memberships and register for this season's events. We ran the memberships yearly expiring on Aug 31 2015, so all are expired now. Most people took the hint to renew their membership when registering for an event in 2016, but somehow some paid for just the new events but didn't renew their membership. I have the setting somewhere (can't find it now) that they can register for multiple events and then pay at the end. Is there a setting somewhere I'm missing to…

              • Ability to join next period of membership and pay for it instead of pro-rating the fee of current period

                Our mob teaches seniors to seniors.
                We have 4 calendar terms.
                Renewing members are invoiced $27 every 3 months 28 days prior to end off term … with 14 day reminders et al.
                New members are invoiced on a prorated basis $9, $18 or $27 depending upon which month of the term they join.

                Still with me??? Deep breath now ….

                1) Any new member who wants to join at the start of the NEXT term, which is normal
                for anyone who enquires toward the end of a term cannot be invoiced until the start of that NEXT term.
                If…

                  In a text field, I can search for a particular value, or the field being empty or not empty. But in a drop-down list I can only search for a particular value or not a value. I cannot search for a blank in a drop-down.

                  • Automatically delete or archive pending new memberships after certain number of days.

                    We have an ongoing issue with people who fill out the memberhisp form then never pay membership fees. These pending new members never expire. I would like to see those with a "pending new" status that are unpaid after 30 days be automatically deleted/archived & the invoice deleted.

                    • New prorate option for new applications - charge for the rest of current period AND add new full one

                      Currently, the system offers two methods to prorate membership dues on new applications. Option one involves prorating the "current" dues assessment to the next renewal period and Option two charges a full dues assessments and provides a "free" extension to the following renewal date.

                      I would like to have a third option for new member applications. Under this option, the "current" dues assessment would be prorated to the renewal date and add a full dues assessment so that they would be paid to the following dues renewal date (thus avoiding the "free" extension in option 2).

                      Example: Jan 1st is…

                      • Half year application fee

                        Hi,

                        Not sure how this can be done. Our social club year runs April 1st-March 31st. Members joining between January 1st and March 31st pay a half year fee.

                        Is it possible to set up a defined $x fee (not pro-rated, a fixed fee) for the period of January 1st March 31st? At this point, members joining in today have an outstanding balance of $2x, a full year fee.

                        Thanks a lot,

                        Nicole

                        • Bundle membership pricing

                          Current behavior:

                          Bundle membership pricing policy is is not flexible - administrator can only setup memberhsip fee and bundle limit. No way to setup pricing based on number of people in bundle.

                          Desired behavior:

                          Add ability to admin to set pricing policy for bundle memberships.For example, we receive feedback from our customers:
                          - "...It would be much easier to have a quantity field to compute the number of members for billing... People select the number of members to include in the bundle. The system calculates the invoice amount."
                          - "...Group memberships - would like a system that allows multiple registrations,…

                          • Provide a way to change membership level during renewal

                            Current Behaviour

                            During membership renewal a member may have more than one membership level available. Choosing among them is cumbersome. The member clicks one button to renew at his current level or clicks another button to choose a different level.

                            Also, changing the membership level doesn’t act like a renewal as regards calculation of the Renewal Due date. Desired Behaviour

                            Use one button for both functions. If multiple membership levels are available, show “Renew and choose membership level” on the “Renew until …” button. This would give the member a choice that looks like that on the membership application form.

                            • Admin to approve membership renewals

                              I realize this is a stretch, but our organization wants to require administrator approval not just for new applications, but for renewals.

                              For example, we have a discounted rate for full time students. We require that people show evidence they are full time students before we activate their membership. We can control this on the Member Level > New Applications tab with a checkbox under "Membership application review"

                              But once they are approved, a year later, they can renew at the same level even if they are no longer eligible for the discount.

                              Anyone has a solution for this?

                              Thanks/

                                Retaining your membership is important to your organization. While Wild Apricot gives you the ability to do automatic renewals and send out reminders for non-automatic renewals, some have suggested that it would be handy to be able to report on this.

                                Suggested
                                Create the ability for administrators to be able to run reports on renewal rates for members.

                                The important thing for this is that we identify what information should be in the reports. At first blush, I can imagine:

                                • Customization of Member profile page

                                  What do you think of moving the placeholder (or give us the option to do this) for the personal photo and/or company logo fields to the upper right hand corner of the member profile display page. Look like the page has a nice blank space there (see attached) that would be perfect home for these images. That way, you have the name and photo at the top of the member profile.

                                  While on that subject, do we have the ability to modify the font size for the member display list?

                                  Overall. you program is outstanding. I am very impressed with…

                                  • Allow one email on several memberships

                                    Allow one email on several memberships!
                                    I have many managers that are responsible for signing up other top management and NEED only that one managers email listed on all memberships.

                                    • Directory show by bundle

                                      We have several blended families and would love that the directory show by bundles rather than by individuals. Often times it's difficult to find the other bundle members if they have a last name that is different from the bundle administrator. Thank you!

                                      • Bundle Membership Information Sync

                                        So I do love the ease of use of WA. However, I've seen "bundle memberships" done better on some other systems.

                                        My need is for a "company membership." I've seen this addressed in a few other places, but the thread where you guys solved some of the issues is closed.

                                        In the bundle membership. As you know individuals are "bundled" together under one administrator.

                                        While this addresses some of our issues. I believe there could be better functionality. I know people use WA in different ways so I've tailored these suggestions to be useful to all users and not just…

                                        • archived group members

                                          We would like to see any 'group member' that has been archived (shown in grey) so we can ask that member to return to the group.
                                          For instance, high school graduates from 2015. John Doe has not renewed his membership and was archived. His name would currently drop off the '2015 graduates' group list and not be shown. It would be much easier to relocate the missing members if we knew where they belonged and that they were in archives. This is similar to how a bundled member shows up if they've been archived (grey in color).
