Improve interface for adding people into Groups
When you go into membership settings - group managment - manage participants -
You can pick a group you want to edit the participant for that group. You have two lists on the left hand side you have the list of participants for that group, on the right hand side you have a list of all members so you can quickly add new members to be participants of that group. All good.
My suggestion is to have a drop down box with a list of data base fields above the right hand box (all members list) then you can pick a database field (custom ones as well). next to the dropdownbox (data base field) you have a text box to specify what you want to search on in that field. Then a search is done and the list below is now a list of specific members you can add to that group. Making life easier.
Reasons for use could create a group for peopleliving in a certain city, etc.
Now to make it even more fancy you could add filter capacity too it. By adding one of those + by the right hand side you could add more searches so you caould search on 2+ fields.
What do people think? hope it goes down well as a new user I hope I am on the right track. Loving your work WA like the new page managment.
I would prefer to make something like "quick actions" right on contact list - so that admin can quickly add a member into group. Contact list has very good search abilities so it's better to use it as a start point.
I agree. If I have a group of people that I want to put into a group, it's quite painful to do a database query and then individually click on each member and then edit their details to add them to the group, go back to the search page, and repeat the same process. Alternatively, this could be implemented on the database search page, where certain actions could be taken on the members that the search returns, such as adding them to a particular group.
