Add ability to add a “Group” to email recipients without having to use saved search
In order to send an email to a “Group” already established in “Group Management”, Wild Apricot first requires that we create a “search” of that group, then we can send the email to that “search”.
My request is for Wild Apricot to add to the email recipient selection options “Group” with a drop down of the established groups to select from.
All standard email systems easily allow sending an email to an established group. If I want to send an email to my Board of Directors or to a specific donor group that is already established, it doesn’t make sense that we should we be required to do this extra function in order to send an email to the group.

I would also add that being able to select the membership level as well, would be a useful function instead of only the "all members" option!
Please see our design solution in the following presentation:
1. Removed modal dialog for adding recipients
2. The ability to add multiple recipients
3. The ability to navigate between saved searches, member groups, and contacts
Excluded for now:
1. The ability to manage recipients from saved searches

Would find it very useful to have that above option and to have an email routing that allows to send an email to ONE email address (for example "firstname.lastname@example.org") that forwards the email to all email addresses in the group. That would help groups to update important information at an instant.
