Ability to forward FYI e-mails to membership
I really love how easy Wild Apricot makes it to send out e-blasts to members or contacts, and we use it for club announcements and newsletters. However, I routinely run into a problem with trying to forward e-mails to our distribution lists.
Our organization often gets announcements from other groups advertising trainings and workshops that we would like to let our members know about. The problem is the only way I can figure out to send this information to our membership is to log into our account and set up an e-mail from the system, and this can be a very tedious process when what I really want to do is click "Forward" and get it out of my inbox. There is no way for me to forward an e-mail to the group at large.
I understand a group could very easily run into problems if just anyone could forward information to the group, but what if there were an e-mail inbox that admins or designated users could forward e-mails to (maybe one for all contacts and one for just members), and as long as it's coming from an admin's registered e-mail address, the system would know to forward it to the membership list. I'm not even concerned about how it handles images because our people are used to receiving forwarded e-mails where the image links are broken for a variety of reasons. It would be nice if it could also forward attachments, but the e-mail text and links are the most important items.
