Administrator control over Member photo albums

As a Wild Apricot website Administrator, I would like to be able to delete individual images from a Member's photo album (e.g. offensive, inappropriate, others' request).

While a Member can add and delete photos, an Administrator can only turn the photo album feature on and off, i.e. shut down all albums for an individual Member.

A workaround is to reset that Member's password, log in as that Member then delete the desired image(s). Then advise the Member to reset their password. This is not the most desirable solution.

From a security perspective, Administrator control over a Member's uploaded content is very important. Wild Apricot have added this to their internal wish list, but I would like to learn fellow Administrators' support for this request here.

        I agree - the way I see it implemented is that we add Photos section into admin Contact details screen. This way admin can open member's admin contact card screen and manage his photos (delete or upload new).

        Note: this is still not in our roadmap, waiting its turn.

        Sorry, I was too quick with my initial answer and confused Photo album gadget storage with Member's photo albums. These are two different beasts and there's currently no way to access Member's albums via WebDAV.

        Thanks for suggestion!

        We would also like to request that administors be given the capability of uploading photo's to members photo alubums.

        Rationale: most of our members are of the older generation and are computer illiterate. So in many cases we need to do it for them and make our job a lot easier.
