Email Domain

Greetings,

I would like to know if you could create a way to link only the email's domain to a membership.

I am the Director of Education for the World Trade Center in Denver, CO, a 501(c)6. Companies become members of the WTC Denver to help them import, export and to attend our specialized classes on conducting international trade. When a company becomes a member of the WTC Denver all of their employees receive the membership benefits.

Example: One of our members is MillerCoors. MillerCoors has several thousand employees within their company making it unrealistic for me to enter each employees email address into my database so I can offer them the membership discount at our events.

Would it be possible to associate only the email domain with a membership so anyone that enters an email address associated with a member company gets the member discount at our events. For example: anyone that uses an email address ending in @millercoors.com receives the discount.

Wild Apricot has been an invaluable asset to the World Trade Center Denver.

Thank you,

Justin

        Justin this is a great idea! We have been struggling with the same thing as Cities and Municipalities join our membership! The turn over is high and there are a lot of members. We have simply asked that they use a generic log in and everyone at the organization shares it... BUT having WA automatically recognize certain domain names would be AWESOME!

        I'm sure that there would be problems with domains like gmail.com etc.. but maybe in the membership bundle there would be a setting to automatically add or suggest folks with the same domain and you could turn that on of off?

        Justin,

        Thanks for posting the request - we will not wait to see what other clients have to say about this but my gut feel that we would not be able to consider this particular request for quite some time as it is much less common than many other things in our pipeline. So for now your best bet is to consider possible manual workarounds for this.
