Make Member Since field available in Member Directory

See note below. Our members would benefit to learn when everyone become part of our organization. It offers continuity and a since of longevity. I contemplated just creating a field, but that was too easy, so I decided to add this to the wishlist to see if others agree and it would save me the time to create the field and maintain it since it is already a system fields. Do all of you agree?

Albert,

Unfortunately it is currently not possible to show the Member since system field in the member directory http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Member+directory . If you could post this request in our wishlist http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist forum then we can gather feedback from others as well and gauge the need for this functionality

Regards,
Jim Sympathy, Fluid Apricot

        We absolutely require this field in order for us to continue using this software solution. There is no reason why we should be hiding this information from members. This will be a deal breaker for us when it comes time to renew.

        We also would like this feature. We currently have to build a Printed Directory where this field is very prominently featured and we expected to be able to make this visible online as well. Thank you.

        I agree! Ditto on the reasons. I would also like to be able to search based on this field -- at least I don't think we can do that now. (I'm a new administrator.)

        I too would like to see the system "Member Since" field made available to be displayed in a directory page for all the same reasons. I have created a custom "Member Since" field but having to maintain two separate fields of the same information goes against my sense of good database design.

        I agree with Albert's suggestion. As our professional association of consultants grows, it's important for prospective clients and member to see that there's a rich mix of new and old members.

        It's interesting to note that the Member Since field is available as an advanced search parameter which means that technically it could be incorporated into a filtered member directory. Without knowing the mechanics of the WA design, it just seems odd that the system field Member ID is available for display though others are not.
