      This seems like it could be closely related to polls/surveys. But I also suspect that there may be some features that are specific to elections that may not be covered by polls/surveys.

      So for now, we’ll keep this suggestions separate from polls/surveys.

    • Classifieds gadget (i.e. Job Board )

      Current behavior:
      Blogs or forums are repurposed to serve as classified ads/job boards, however they have serious limitations that prohibit them from being suitable solutions.

      Desired behavior:
      Self-service (e.g. searchable, browseable) classified ads system for members and visitors, with administration tools to moderate and manage entries/permissions.

      • Tracking Continuing Education Points (CEU, CEC, CPD, CPU)

        There is currently no special functionality for tracking Continuing Education points/credits in Wild Apricot. It is possible to track these via custom admin-only fields but this requires manual process. We are considering adding this functionality in the future and would appreciate details on how these are typically tracked by our clients.

            I did not see this on the wishlist in the list of 339, unless i missed it :).

            SMS (text) notication option would be great to have as alot of our members use texting on their phones. Email works good too but push text woould be great to have as an option for communication. Thanks.

              Desired
              Admin will have the ability to create a survey

              Surveys are comprised of multiple questions, which are often inter-related or at least all concern a similar subject. Members or guests would have to ability to participate in a survey and answer the questions. Admins would be able to view the survey in the administrative side of the site and be able to see the ongoing results for each survey. Additionally, admins may only invite a certain group of people to participate in a survey.

              • Ability to track volunteer hours

                We are a swim club:

                It would be fabulous if we could have members submit their volunteer hours on the website. Once approved (yes, they were there) by event organizer, the total volunteer hours would be tracked with their membership info. The administrator could query how many volunteer hours each member has put in.

                We require that each family donate 40 hours to the club per year or pay a higher membership fee.

                • Wild Apricot in other languages

                  Current behavior:
                  Wild Apricot administration is only available in English. Websites and emails can use different languages, but system pages and gadgets may contain some uneditable English text.

                  Desired behavior:
                  Support different language sets, which will update all labels to the selected language.

                  • Tracking Event Volunteers

                    A huge part of our non-profit's activities involve not only sponsoring events and managing event registrations, but also (just as importantly if not moreso) signing up volunteers to help with these events. There are a few different types of volunteers typically.

                    (1) General volunteers who sign up to help plan the event. There may be different subsets in this category. For example, our annual Spring Fair is a major event that recruits volunteers for the Food Committee, Decorating Committee, Entertainment Committee, PR Committee, etc.

                    (2) Event Day Volunteers are people who sign up for specific jobs and/or time slots on…

                    • Volunteer management functionality

                      I can't believe I couldn't find this on the list already!

                      I tried to find way to use the exisiting donation form as a 'donation of in-kind' but that didn't work cause the form fields weren't custom to a page. It would have shown on the general donation form.

                      I looked at complimenting applications that would have just required an html form, but way too much info, I just want a way for members to log and historically view on the members profile, project, hours, date

                      I am a newbie, but I am very impressed with the application!

                      • Sponsor/Advertiser Management Module

                        We would like to sell ad space in our footer and/or header areas to sponsors and other advertisers.

                        While it is possible to do this manually, with separate billing etc., it would be very helpful to have a tool to manage the process, including:

                        * receipt and storage of an ad or logo
                        * scheduling of its presentation (ie start date, stop date, duration etc)
                        * selection of which pages it would appear on
                        * billing and collection via credit card

                        As for many organizations, I am sure this wouild provide a means of cost-effectively generating revenues and site traffic.

                          Provide a scheduling/reservation widget that makes it possible for "members" of our website (and based on their membership level) to reserve "resources" on a first-come, first-served basis.

                          * Leverage current “membership level” feature to allow members to reserve a resource listed in their “membership level”. For instance, some members will have the rights to reserve a laptop but not an iPad.

                          * Only administrators can add a resource to a “membership level”.

                          • Have 2 different contact types: Organizations and Individuals

                            Hi WA - I'm new to the product/community and was just reviewing the long thread on bundles (http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825677-revising-bundle-membership-functionality?page=1&per_page=20) since we need this feature.

                            It looks to me like refactoring to give organization its own entity in the system would setup the platform better for addressing the issues raised.

                            Are there long term plans to do something like this?

                            * An "Organizations" tab/capability just like "Contacts".
                            * People could belong to one or more organizations.
                            * Organizations would have their own notes / history etc separate from the people within it.

                              It would be greatly beneficial to be able to create additional databases within Wild Apricot for use by our Members. For example, as a writers organization, we would like to create a database our members could access to post the rights information for any stories they've written without having to use an outside service.

                                Hi,

                                My organization has a library that we allow members to check out from every month. With that said I was hoping for 2 things.

                                1) an inventory database to keep track of our media (I can see this also being useful for other things such as equipment we own or donation items we get and then give)

                                2) the capability to connect members to an item. this would allow us to track who checked something out and automatically send out reminder emails to members and what they have checked out (currently this is all done my hand each month…

Should not have to use third-party email providers for email blasting and social media posting. Even if you charge additional $ as an add on to your current product/subscription you should still be offering it as most competitors do. Drip Campaigns is another feature that is very popular. Allows for great communication to clients, members, etc.

                                  • Gift Memberships for the holidays, birthdays and special occasions.

                                    Allow one person so set-up and pay for membership and "gift it" to someone else. Currently there is a workaround be setting up a Google form, and then our admin creates the invoice. Its too much manual work and payment is not smooth. Would be best if WA had an new membership workflow, with online payment and it generated a simple gift certificate for the person to give to the recipient. Other orgs (zoo, museums, etc...) have this function.

                                    • Functionality to generate physical letters

                                      My organization is not going to go entirely digital. I need to generate the occasional physical letter. The idea is that in addition to being able to generate ad-hoc emails, I want to be able to generate ad-hoc physical mailings. But they are not really ad-hoc; they correspond to points in my organization's processes that do not map to WildApricot. I want to store templates for these letters in WildApricot; when the need arises, I would like to be able to ask WildApricot to instantiate a template I pick for a member I pick. I can do the printing and…

                                      • Task list for Organizations

                                        Current behavior:
                                        All organizations have tasks tied to recurring deadlines (pay taxes collect dues, etc). Specific people need to be apprised and reminded of these deadlines, and need to have the ability to designate the task as having been completed. At present, the system provides no way to assign and follow up on these tasks.

                                        Desired behavior:
                                        A task system that allows administrators to create a list of tasks and define due dates, recurrence, and either a member or a group with member(s) assigned to it to complete the task. Alerts can be sent to the member/group as the date…
