  1. Allow configuration of Group administrators to approve their team's membership applications

    A sports club usually has several teams (i.e. groups) within it, each of which will require periodic renewal and new applicant approvals. Each team is managed by an individual manager who is ideally placed to authorise renewals and new membership applications for his/her particular team. When a new applicant applies for membership of the club they are required to select the appropriate team on their application form (e.g. age group). This application should then ideally be emailed to the actual team manager for acceptance / refusal rather than having at present to be processed by the overall site administrator(s). The…

      • Provide simple site use instructions for members

        We have just joined and created a great website that includes profile management, news blogs, event registration and forums. One of the reason we chose WA was members could interact with all of these features without admin intervention. The WA help seems to be oriented to Admins, not users. I now have to develop user friendly instructions on how to use these features. I could not find user instructions on WA and recommend drafts for end user use of the gadgets.

        • Display checkbox edits & results in columns, rather than one neverending list

          I have certain fields with MANY entries (over 200) and members who often will select all 200. I can't have individual drop down lists, because to have 200 dropdown lists is unmanageable and looks way too complicated. The next option: to have checkboxes. However, the way the system is, when members edit their profiles, they are presented with a huge vertical list. There is SO much white space to the right that could be used to make the presentation more professional, so that one doesn't have to scroll through 3 pages just to get to the bottom of the list.…

          • Welcome Confirmation Landing Page

            It would be nice to have a customized welcome page for when new members register. It should be a page we can customize on our own to link from once they hit the submit button.

            This way it doesn't go to the profile, and you can tell them where you would like them to go from there, to take some sort of action. Like a link to another page, or the membership section.

            • When a member is automatically archived for non-payment of dues that member should not be able to re-activate their membership by logging in

              When a member is automatically archived for non-payment of dues that member should not be able to re-activate their membership by logging in with their email/password. Or, at least from the global level the organization should be able to choose whether this is acceptable or not. Right now, we will have to check all archived members and individually remove their email to prevent this!

              • Automatically prompt someone to sign in or create an account

                It would be a GREAT upgrade to the software, if instead of the software rejecting a sign in when someone has not yet created an account (as happens currently) that it instead gave them a message that they must have an account and sign in before they register. The screen should simply give two options - sign in or create and account. This would save a ton of confusion and multiple phone calls from customers.

                • profile email subscriptions: Add subscribe as well as unsubscribe

                  1. Current: When a member goes to their profile, and chooses the "Email Subscriptions" tab, they can only see the forums they are subscribed to, and choose to unsubscribe.
                  Change: List all forums and allow user to subscribe or unsubscribe and choose update frequency without having to go to each forum.
                  2. Allow access to the above when member is creating their profile

                  • Enable field Alphabetizing

                    I need to be able to alphabetize membership fields. For example, our organization has chapters in a small but growing number of states. In order to have an alphabetical list, I moved the names of the fields around, only to find it scrambled my records because of the index values associated with the fields. There has to be a way for you to develop something that lets users rearrange the fields without losing the index values associated with them.

                    • Go back to basics - look at the core member functions like the directory

                      We moved to WildApricot because it sounded like the best ever membership software for the web. Yes it's member management is great, love the app and it's easy to use. BUT is it loosing sight of it's core purpose in favour of glory features? The wishlist is full of ideas for online shops, blogs etc and events seems to have been a major piece of work last year. Yet when you look at the core member functions like the directory this is failing to deliver in layout flexibility and search engine visibility.

                      Surely as the premier membership software it should…

                      • Age restriction on bundle membership level

                        I recommend to put an option to restrict the age on bundle membership level. For example I signed up for a bundle membership and now i want to add my kids to the membership as member. Now the organization limit the age of those kids to 18 or under so as soon as the member administrator add kids 18+ the system should be reject them. Or if they add kids under 18 and as soon as the kids get 18 all parties should be notify and that kid should be opt out from the membership.

                        • Allow me to search for a blank value in a drop-down field

                          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.

                          • Suspended members still receiving emails and newsletters

                            Why do suspended members still receive our newsletters? They also show up on current membership counts. What's up with this? Do I really have to go in and disable their email settings?

                            • Selected values should also apply to Internal Use fields

                              I have a custom drop-down field for my members. You have a nice feature that allows me to define a Selected value for new members. That's great, but why does that only work for public fields? I want to have my drop-down list for internal use only, but for some reason your code doesn't apply the selected value isn't public. Why? Would you please allow the selected value to work for internal fields, too?

                                • Create a Member Nomination function for invite-only memberships

                                  As an invite-only organisation, rather than having members apply, we would prefer to have current members nominate new ones. This would mean an Application within the site using different language - e.g. Nominee's email, Nominee's name, Person Nominating, reason, etc.

                                  • Proper Text capitialization

                                    Set up text fields for proper capitalization, forcing first letter capital, others lower case.

                                    While you are at it, allow some fields to be required information, thus not allowing them to be skipped.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Support variable price memberships types with minimum base price

                                        Our organization has three different types of membership: individual, business and family. Each of these different types has a minimum base price. Each of these types also have "levels" based on the dues amount the member chooses to pay. (In our case all dues are tax deductible and are treated by the IRS as donations.)
                                        It would be very useful to us if Wild Apricot allowed us to establish a membership type with a minimum required dues (e.g. donation) and then tracked the total donations made by that member during the current year and was able to report the level…

                                        • Mapping location of members

                                          For trade associations, it would be great for companies to be able to indicate where they are located, so everyone can search for local companies.

                                          then to sort and map companies by their indicated locations, would be phenomenal.
