      Sorry for the late update.

      The first step was finished and emails can now be carbon copied to contact’s alternative emails. To do so the contact fields which store the alternative emails must be explicitly marked on the email setting page.

      Unsubscribing will unsubscribe all alternative emails simultaneously because they all belong to the very same account. The person clicking “unsubscribe” is warned about this on the unsubscribe page.

      For now we paused the development of this feature. but not for good. :) So I’m changing this wish status back to “collecting comments”.

      Thank you everyone for a valuable feedback.

    • 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.

      • Text editing

        Several quirks in text editing need repair.

        Enter adds 2 blank line:
        Attempting to insert blank lines and paragraphs between existing paragraphs can create double blank lines or no paragraph separation at all.

        Keep selection after applying formatting:
        If text is selected and formatting (font size, bold, color) applied, the selection should stay there until clicked somewhere else. As is, it goes away when the formatting is applied, so if you want to change a paragraph to, say, a smaller font, italics, and a color, you have to selected it three times.

        And many more

        • Allow members and/or conference registrants to upload file attachments - like abstract submission

          Our academic society would find it extremely useful if members -- or better yet, conference registrants -- could upload files (e.g., Word docs, PDFs). This would allow presenters at the conference to share papers prior to the conference, potentially enhancing the feedback that they would get from other conference-goers. We would really like to provide this service for our members/conference attendees.

          • Fast registration or Simplify buying registrations to multiple events or multiple registrations in one event

            At the moment, it is not possible to register for multiple events at the same time, or link to the next event after registering for one event on Wild Apricot. This functionality would have been extremely helpful for a recent conference for Children's Hospital that we set up through you...would it be possible to add this feature?

            UPDATE by Apricot Kernel: I decide to add here a good comment from Malcolm de C, it sheds more light into the problem

              I merged another very similar thread into this one, they should be solved together – the registration to multiple events should be simple and fast if possible. There are a number of suggestions in comments on how to achieve this.

            • Recurring events: separate registrations for each occurrence (e.g. monthly board meetings)

              Original recurring events request was to complex for us to resolve in a single release, so we decided to focus it on a simple scenario where event can have multiple sessions, but event registration is one and for all - like courses. See http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825581-recurring-events-scenario-1-event-with-multiple for more details on this one.

              Another important scenario is when event is actually a recurring series of events, but each occurrence of an event may have a separate registration and updated description of event. Example - monthly board meetings. Event is created in the beginning of year with a monthly recurring schedule, but each occurrence…

              • Listserv i.e. ability to submit forum posts by email

                Current behavior:
                Discussions and collaborations between members can currently only be handled online (within forum or blog pages)

                Desired behavior:
                Listserv functionality where members can mail-in comments and receive email summaries of all comments

                Notes:
                1) The biggest challenge is how to enable this without overloading our servers with email traffic. This can ramp up quickly.
                2) We are starting the work on forum email notifications, this handles this need at least partially.

                • 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.

                  • Ability to donate during membership application/renewal or event registration

                    Current features:
                    Visitors/members are not prompted to make donation while they are performing other payments (e.g. membership renewals, event registrations,etc)

                    Desired features:
                    Admins have the ability to enable donations to be made during event registrations, membership applications/renewals or other payments.

                    • SMS communications

                      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.

                          Current design suggestion: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1bysAcJFAs9-lVEbNBSyqhT-QSDt6TvTDPz8k2nvaJ3I/pub?start=true&loop=false&delayms=15000

                          Key Change:
                          We’ve extended the ‘Event calendar’ gadget settings by adding a new option ‘Members-driven events’ – allows members to submit their events from the calendar page by using a simple form.

                          We’ve also included a few features to help you organize and restrict these events. These changes are:

                          1) Restrict the submitting events option to specific members
                          2) Automatically assign tags to these events so you have easily include/exclude them from various calendars
                          3) Options to send a confirmation email to the submitter and or administrator
                          4) Separate filter in Event list for administrator to show Members events
                          5) Members that submit events can access a list of the events they’ve submitted to view, edit and delete them

                          Excluded for now:

                          1) No options to submit events with advanced registration options. Only minimal details, like Title, Description, Dates and Location. However an administrator can add…

                        • Provide reporting on member logins

                          I'd like to have the ability to get more data on recent logins. Currently, the dashboard displays "most active members" but I think a "recently active members" feature is equally if not more useful. I'd also like to be able to see more than just the top 5 results for these categories.

                          I think this would be beneficial for monitoring campaigns or promotions. Right now we are trying to get members to use the features of our new site or just log in at all, so if we put together a promotional email, for instance, "The top 5 things you…

                          • Membership Trends Reporting

                            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:
                            * In a year, how many renewals were done before the renewal date, on the renewal date, and then certain…

                              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…

                              • Installments / Payment plans for events and memberships

                                Could Wild Apricot users offer their members an introductory trial rate for, say 30 or 7 days, followed by, say quarterly or six-monthly payments to spread the cost over the year?

                                That is very helpful during a recession, when many WA website users will find revenue dropping as their members cut back. To be able to spread payments looks very attractive to new prospective members: four quarterly payments of $10 is much easier on the budget than one payment of $40.

                                The introductory trial could be free, or at a pro-rata cost for 30 or 7 days. During the trial…

                                • 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.

                                    We are providing a web site for our cub parents and scouts and scout parents and we find we have say 2 parents and their 2 children as 4 members, but the parents and children share a family address, the younger children do not have their own address nor do mothers or fathers want the children to have gmail addresses or things like that, so allowing multiple members with one email address would be an improvement for us. A username and password of their choosing preferable to one WA generate.

                                    The situation also arrises where parents would like email to…

                                    • Mandatory payment for event registration: complete a registration only when a payment is received

                                      I have two sites that I have just created and thought before hand (Prior to last update) that I tried the registration process. I recall being able to turn off manual or offline payments which in turn would only complete event registrations only if an online payment was received.

                                      Now that I have built these two sites and see that "invoices" are being created and people are regsitering without paying online, it is creating a major problem and adding a tremendous burden on our businesses in multiple ways.

                                      1. A bunch of our events have limited registration so when people…

                                      • Discount coupons for event registrations

                                        I tried implementing the arrangement for coupon codes for events this week.

                                        I'm sorry, but I really don't like the way it currently works.

                                        To explain, I wanted to setup a coupon code in WA for 25% off a registration for any event. To start with, I needed to edit every single event one at a time to do so. Then, when I logged in and practiced going through the process of registering, it showed the 25% off rate as an option. Anyone could see the amount of the coupon, even if they did not know the code and therefore…

                                          Incorporate form design and submission functionality. This would help clubs automate some administrative processes.
