  1. 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.

    • 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…

      • 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 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…

          • Family/child memberships

            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…

            • Printing Membership cards in bulk

              Membership cards are great and I like that members can print their own. I would like to see a feature where the administrator can print all member cards in bulk to card stock like Avery so we can laminate the cards for appearance.

              • 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.

                • Free trial period for membership

                  I would like to offer a free trial access period for all payment levels. Rather like Wild Apricot does, but not necessarily for 30 days. Paypal offer this delayed action payment and it works very well. You can choose how long the free trial period is, and then the payment automatically kicks in.

                  Asking people for money upfront puts a lot of people off.

                  • Automatically change a "Lapsed" membership status to "Active" when we record a membership payment on a member's record.

                    We had some "Lapsed" members that paid their dues. The Wild Apricot system did not automatically change their membership status to "Active" when the payment was recorded. There is no place on the invoice screen that shows the members status when we manually record payments. It creates an extra step to go back to the members record to make sure it is changed to "Active"

                    • Late Fees on Renewals

                      Currently:
                      Memberships that renew have a renewal date associated with them. If the member has not initiated the renewal after the date, automatic actions can take place, such as changing the membership status, etc. Actions can progress over days: for example at 7 days the membership might change status to Pending Renewal, and at 14 days be archived.

                      Proprosed:
                      Along with these changes, a "overdue fee" could be added as an extra cost fee. Depending on how much time has passed since the registration date, the admin could choose to apply this charge as a flat amount. For example, if…

                      • Member to member messages

                        Current behavior:
                        Currently one member can contact another only outside of the system - and only if that member has disclosed his contact information (email/phone)

                        Desired behavior:
                        Members should be able to contact other members right on the site, without having to expose email addresses

                        Notes:
                        Messages can be forwarded to member emails - or displayed to each member when logged in.

                          Now that you have membership cards (3.5" x 2"). Is it possible to add the ability to make Name Badges (4" x 3") for Avery #5260 labels? Or some other label directly from WildApricot.

                          • Zip code or address radius search for member directory

                            I am currently evaluating Wild Apricot for use with a specific database and I would like to be able for public visitors to use the Advanced search to look for:

                            Members "within" "x" miles of "zip code" or "address"

                            This feature would allow visitors to find people near their location and not just in a specific zip code. It's better to put in the address and find closest locations because it's more specific than the zip code. I think this feature would greatly enhance the ability for people to use this software for other databases. Like for me, I do…

                            • Purchase of concurrent subscriptions e.g. have members on multiple levels

                              Create an option to allow a member to maintain two or more concurrent subscriptions for a paticular site. This is useful if you running a site and selling a subscriptions for information.

                              An exmaple of this is that I run a site that sells repair information. A customer signs up and then can choose to signup for Automotive Repair for $50 or Airplane Repair for $100 or both for $150. We need to keep the infromation and forums seperate and only limited to the actual subscribers.

                              My understanding that we can only have levels of a paticular membership, not concurrent…

                                For me personally, this a great suggestion and I’ve been thinking about it for long time myself. Ideally, I’d really like completely redesign our membership levels to concurrent subscriptions model. Subscription gives you access to some information or provide privileges. There can be multiple ways of buying it – e.g. for a year or two, recurring or not, etc. Altogether, subscription-based model is very robust and easy to understand. Please, vote!

                                I would very much like the ability to have a custom field be required for Bundle Admins only (or the single person membership when not part of a bundle). We are a swim club and we need to capture data relevant only to the family (or the individual when not part of a family).

                                It is awkward for our members when the bundle members each have to fill out a field that applies only to the family unit, and even worse when the bundle admin, during the process of entering or updating their family's data, has to fill out a…

                                • Support both Organizations & Individual contacts

                                  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?

                                  • Change setup of recurring payment for membership levels - Allow member to choose if he wants to pay recurring or not

                                    For membership fees, recurrent credit card billing (ie., auto-renewal) doesn't work the way it does in every other subscription management system. Instead of having two payment options on the membership form (or in my case, since I have five membership levels, TEN payment options), the member should select a level and then be provided an option at the next step (like the manual payment versus online election) that allows the person to select recurrent auto billing. The way you have it set up, its basically unusable (IMHO)

                                    • Tracking lapsed members who reactivate

                                      We would like to track our members history more accurately. Right now, if they lapse and then sign up again a year or two later they are shown as having continuous membership since their original date of sign up.

                                      • Printable and Downloadable Custom Reports e.g. Member Directory

                                        Please make the custom report layout feature printable. This would work well for printable directories, group information, etc.

                                        Our group is trying to make a directory in a PDF format that is searchable and may be printed by those who prefer print.

                                        • Customizing the Term "Bundle"

                                          Could we have the ability to specify our own name for the word "bundle," wherever it appears in WA?

                                          When a new member gets into WA for the first time and tries to figure out how it works, having a recognizable term for a bundle would smooth the way.
                                          There are excellent terms for the bundle concept, but they differ from organization to organization. In just this thread http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825677-revising-bundle-membership-functionality-2492 , a bundle is used as a:
                                          If we could choose the term for a bundle, end users would immediately recognize what it means. And we wouldn't have to explain it…
