Customize forum notification emails
I'm going to have a hard time getting people to subscribe to our neighborhood association forum vs the "next door" forum that has been building over the last year here. I'm attaching visuals for reference.
The wild apricot email summary is visually uninviting and instead of asking people to engage by hitting "reply" it offers them a chance to "unsubscribe" first.
It doesn't include a picture so it's not as personal as it could be and I don't see an option for people to sign up to receive every message in a forum as opposed to a daily summary should they choose to do so. Next door gives options to subscribe to every message or get a daily summary, or only view when you go into the website. In addition, once you reply to a message you get every message.
The email subject line isn't inviting either.
Is there a team working on this?
It would also be nice if there were easier options to upload logos to website templates/newsletters/announcements etc. Everything is designed around an organization replacing text to get their organization name at the top of something but I would expect that most organizations have logos.

I second this, we currently renewed for 2 years but in the course of 3 years, we have made several forums that have failed. When surveyed it was because of the email digest being "bland" and not at all like our prior listserv email. We have been searching for a third party solution to fulfill our needs but having to do so diminishes the need for WA. My Executive Director has tasked me with finding a new membership provider in 2019 if the functionality isn't improved.

Part of it will be covered in http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825587-ability-to-submit-forum-posts-by-email-to-use-fo , so I rename this thread and make it focused on customization of forum notification emails. This way, each organization will be able to have their own version of email.
