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.

        We like to be able to attach supporting docs, *pdf, onto members Profiles. Thanks very much.

        It would be a great add-on to be able to allow members to upload their photos without them being resized. This would allow us to download and reuse their photos for onsite events and presentations without having thumbnail only sizes.

        It would be great to be able to attach PDFs to the member profiles, such as their actual membership forms.

        Thank you

        I hope you are working on developing an abstract submission tool for conferences. We love Wild Apricot for our events and membership needs. We currently set up an event for abstract submission. It works but is administratively not efficient. We would love to see a more sophisticated tool as an add on.

        I would like a way for new members to be able to upload their resume. You have the capability to upload a avatar - why not a resume.

      • D LeeD Lee commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Yes! Having a way for Members to upload files would be great! Even if it's just for an event! It would allow us to use an event as a registration form and allow event registrants to upload relevant files instead of emailing them. It'll also save from us having to use an alternative form website that supports file uploads.

        This Wishlist item may achieve the goal of the other wishlist item that has been ABANDONED! (Allow members and/or conference registrants to upload file attachments). How are members supposed to share documents easily with each other?????

      • ccrboardccrboard commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Ability for an applicant to upload documents such as proof of CEs, letters of recommendation, copies of licenses, etc.

        We would love to have the ability to upload pdf documents to a members file. Certificates, original paper applications for older members for the sake of history. When a member receives an award, we check out their original membership folder for history that predates our staff. We'd love to be able to upload these documents over time and have all of our membership information in one place.

        I would use this type of feature to allow members to retrieve their own certificate of attendance to a conference. they can keep a history of the certificates from the events they attend.

        I work for the Association of African American Museums, and we need this functionality ASAP in order to streamline conference scholarship applications and the same reasons stated by this initial poster! Please make this happen ASAP!!!

        I had previously been advised that the implementation of a file upload option, was on the WA roadmap for 2016, but there doesn't seem to be any update on an ETA for this crucial feature. Is it possible to please get some idea of when this might be offered?

      • RogerRoger commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Our organisation needs to have the functionality that allows members to apply for advertised positions. The means thay need to be able to select the advertised position, which will bring up an email which is automatically directed to a hidden mail address such as our admin address. The act of clicking on the advertised position should automatically open an email and load in the subject line the unique reference number of that advertised position. Finally and most importantly we need the respondant to be able to attach their Resume (probably word document or PDF).

        We require a copy of a license to validate a membership. It defeats the purpose of having an automated membership registration system that requires a manual process of sending an email (actually over 500 emails :-0) to someone, that in turn has to advise someone else, that in turn has to validate the application. Having this simple feature would save us volunteers an enormous amount of work!

        I would have thought the implementation of an option to upload documents in WA would be paramount. We are finding it extremely limiting not being able to offer this to our clients. We have also had to use external form building software to give us the upload option, but this then means data is stored externally and may not communicate easily with the WA site. Very frustrating.

      • Bill WilsonBill Wilson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Our organisation requires a copy of the applicant's university transcript to be provided. Our application form is online and that works fine but we then have this issue with obtaining the scanned document. At the moment when we ask that they send an attachment via email to the membership secretary. It would certainly be an improvement if we could have them attach that to their initial membership application so that the process is one step and not two. This issue has been raised in house several times in the last twelve months.

        If there is a simple way to achieve this without needing a change that would be very good.

        Thanks

        Scott, to follow up on your latest comment to me:

        The only thing we can promise is something that "work in progress" - see https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932/status/1547997 . This means that this particular idea is in our immediate focus, we're designing or developing it now and results to be expected in some of the next releases.

        The rest can change anytime and this is why we do not really promise anything and not providing timelines.

        The best way to to move something in our development queue is to vote for an idea - which you all are doing. We use number of votes as one of most important parameters in our prioritization, but this is not the only parameter.
