  1. Allow admin to define multiple sender emails and use them across the system

    We've had a number of similar ideas - allow administrators to setup multiple "from" emails addresses (sender email) and use them in various scenarios like email blasts, event reminders, membership emails, etc. Currently all emails are sent from single FROM email, defined at Settings > Your Account > Organization Details > Email Settings

    I merged all posts together so we can address them together properly. Quotes from some of original posts and comments:

    "To avoid all site-related emails coming from a common sender, and risking email fatigue for our members, it would be terrific if one-off and system emails had…

    • 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.

      • Managing email subscriptions to forum updates

        Current behavior:
        Members can subscribe to receive updates about forum posts by email - by going to the forum and clicking on a subscription link in that forum or topic
        However, there is no way for administrator to view their subscription status or change it.
        If administrator wants to subscribe them manually, the only way is to log in under member's profile (so he has to know the password) and subscribe to forums as if he is this member - very crude workaround.
        Admin can only remove subscriptions from member records.

        Desired behavior:
        - Allow administrator to subscribe member(s) to…

        • Insert current date and time in email templates

          It is crucial to have current date field in email templates. This will minimize the need to insert manually, every time.

          • Event registration require approval

            I would like to have a checkbox on each event registration type -- similar to what's available on membership levels for new membership applications -- so that I can choose to require admin approval to register for certain events. Once the admin approves a registration, then the payment is immediately processed, same as with membership approvals.

            • 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…

              • 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.

                • SEO enhancements - 301 Redirects

                  As per our e-mail exchange, we'd like to request the ability to do 301 redirects. It's not something everyone will understand the value of, but it is a very good idea. It would benefit everyone, but especially those switching an existing site to a WA site.

                  Here are some additional details of why they are important. As per a previous email exchange from Dmitry, I'll post these comments here...

                  • Affiliate program integration

                    Current behavior:
                    There is no way to send an autiomatic confirmation to the affiliate system if it is used to drive new memberships

                    Desired behavior:
                    Ability to capture the affiliate source for member coming to the application page and then send a confirmation upon successful member application.

                    Notes:
                    1) Confirmation will probably be implemented by allowing custom Javascript code to run after completed memberships
                    2) Need to figure out a way to distinguish when that should be sent (how would the system know where the application is originated)
                    3) Different processing for different membership levels is probably needed

                    • Add eMail Subscription Feature to Blog Pages

                      I like the forum subscription service. It woudl be great to be able to link this to blog -posts as well. In our organization, members post their own media releases and announcements on the site through the blog feautre. However, they only get distributed to the mailing list once a month or so. Being able to assure members their postings are distributed immediately would be a great addition to the value proposition.

                      • Integration with external email systems like Constant Contact, Mailchimp

                        Constant Contact just launched AppConnect -- a destination for software providers, and developers who want to integrate or connect an application to Constant Contact. AppConnect gives others access to their web service APIs so they can create tie-ins with their contact and reporting data. Constant Contact gives their service away to many non-profits and chambers of commerce. At present, companies export email lists out of W/A and into Constant Contact. The downside is the extra work involved with moving the data and keeping both data sets up to date; plus the "email history" is being lost from the member's record.…

                        • 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…

                          • Color-format events based on event tags

                            I'd like to be able to have just one calendar, with different event tags displayed differently, like in a different color or style or size. Currently I'm using two different calendars, which is a bit awkward. What do you think?

                            • Change the default image size for picture fields and make it customizable

                              I am using the Image Upload as part of my Registration Form. This image has a Max Size of 110 X 110 which appears very small, and there is no way to enlarge it. I encourage members to use the Photo Albums to upload additional images because these images in the Photo Albums do display a little larger. The main profile photo is what you see in the Member Directory and it is too small. It would be nice to have a click/mouse-over feature to make the image display a little larger. Thank You.

                                  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.

                                      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…

                                        Is it possible that you could correct the function of the forum and blog pages to not only allow someone to add a link, but also to add a document to the page?

                                        What downfall is there in providing this function?

                                        • Dicount 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…
