Notify admin if a member updates their profile - fields, notification or privacy prefs
Have my website email or text me if a member updates his/her record.
A significant number of our members update their information incorrectly .. the wrong format or the wrong field. It would be SO helpful to know when someone has updated their information so we can verify the accuracy and thereby maintain an accurate, current, online membership list. Without this information, our online Wild Apricot database is mostly not accurate. This is a big issue for us.
Our membership roster depends on accurate information which is very difficult to coordinate since we don't know when any of our members updates their own information. We can export our database to Excel and then compare the current file with an old file, but how much easier it would be simply to receive notification.
All of our members get a magazine and I need to know if a member changes their address so I am not sending a magazine to an incorrect address. Please add this feature.
Send administrator/s an email notification any time a member updates his/her profile. This way we know there have been changes and can update this information in any other records we may use.

Notify an administrator when a member unsubscribes from email blasts
This would be a most helpful feature! We use a listserv and various other contact lists and when a member updates their email address, a notification would allow us to update all of our lists with the new information.

GREAT!!! Regarding National Button Society - when a member renews or signs up as new - I always check the address because I need to keep it in USPS format. But if a member just goes in for the sole purpose of changing their address info, 95% of the time they do not use the correct format - EVEN THOUGH each of the address fields have explicit instructions. Finding their errors is very time consuming and tedious. Rarely do they add the last 4 digits of the US Zip Code. The worse problem is many spell out the state name, but in order for our members to look up members in a particular state, the state needs to be entered using the two letter abbreviation - EX: California should be entered CA.
There are MANY other reasons the member's addresses need to be kept in USPS format - one being the length of the address if everything is spelled out. Many addresses would then take TWO lines instead of one in our membership directory. If we add too many more pages to the directory, it will cost more to print as it won't be able to be stapled. I won't list ALL EIGHT reasons my life would be SO MUCH better, if I could be notified when a member changes their address. Keeping fingers crossed.
This would be a great option! Our membership is continually changing and this would keep me informed so I can let our board know of all current member status!

We have a list of volunteer opportunities (committee names, one-time opportunities, etc.) included as options to a single item on our member profiles ("I would like to volunteer in the following ways..."). It would be great if, when someone selected a specific option, a notification could go to specified board member in charge of that volunteer activity. Short of that, it would be good if, when a new item was selected, an administrator could receive an email and forward the volunteer's contact info to the appropriate person.

We need to know if a member changes their phone number or address, so would like a notification sent to the Administrator whenever certain member details are modified.
Alternatively, could we export an extract of member details based on a last modified date field?
We would love to have this option as well! Our members are principals, so we want to receive notification if they've switched schools.
I would love to see the option of having an email notification (sent to admin or other designated individual) when members or contacts update their profile.
