Members, Summary - reporting on bundles
Almost all of our member levels are bundles, so having the bundle numbers in brackets for the Total column is good, but it would be really useful on the other columns as well. The dashboard would then be a great quick report for associations like ours.

Yes. The current member summary is useless for us. A membership is either a single person or a couple, so the number of contacts pending renewal tells us nothing.
Agreed. Using the bundle for family right now and need to find families that registered bundle admin but forgot to register their kids...

We are in total agreement with this request!! We would like to know the bundle counts for lapsed and inactive memberships as well. From a financial and income perspective, we are very interested in the dues being collected (or not) from memberships. If bundles counts were added to lapsed and inactive, it would give us a quick financial picture. Not only a member count picture. Members associated with a bundle do not provide revenue, the bundles do.
At least for me, it would be helpful to have both the membership number and the bundle number in most if not all columns. So: 243 (52) instead of just 243.
The larger number, when it comes to bundled membership levels, doesn't really tell me much about how many have not renewed. The member number might be 200, but the actual number of bundles that have not renewed comprising that number might be only 10 with 20 members each.
Does that make any sense?
Our org website is ceany.org
I think I understand the suggestion (see image below) and this is a relatively small change, but before we rush into adding something like this could you elaborate in more detail what an ideal bundle report might look like ?
Also in your response feel free to include the website address of your organization or send it to me directly (frank at wildapricot dot com) so I can take a look.

We offer membership to organisations (bundle administrator members with multiple members)
To be usefull for us, the member summary should show data for bundle administrator only.
I propose to add a 'view selected' button to choose between bundle administrator OR bundle members statistics or to implement an other summary to show data separatly, but at the same time, one under the other.
When you go to the main member list overview page, it has (Bundles) after the total column, and each row under that will tell you have many bundle members you have.
Would it be possible to extend that functionality to more of the columns, especially to Active, Renewal Overdue, Lapsed, and Pending Renewal?
Since the bundle is our real membership number in financial terms, it is more helpful when considering finances to be able to quickly get that number than the number of member contacts under each bundle.
