Event Email Notifications - Default Members vs. All Contacts
When you plan an event and announcement emails, the default is ALL CONTACTS, these include other people who may have registered for one previous event and don't want to be spammed for every other event.
It would be better if the default was ALL MEMBERS and ability to select other types of contacts.
We still use (other) Contacts for future events that would be of interest to them.

When scheduling or sending event announcements, the default is to send to "All Contacts". This is very problematic for our group as many people miss this box and an e-mail meant for a small group goes to every contact in our system. It would be most helpful if there were NO default and you were required to select who the announcement goes to. This would prevent what has become a very big issue for us with so many interest group leaders sending their event announcements. Thanks.

Yes, the default should be a) All members (NOT all contacts) and, b) we should be able to set this ourselves.
Absolutely! We had all contacts inadvertently emailed with a personal home address of a committee member due to making this error. Please make this change to prevent these issues again 😊
