  1. "Link/URL" transforming membership field

    When we use normal text fields and members want to post a lengthy URL (for example to a Facebook Page that includes browser parameters in the string) it totally destroys the page layout since the long URL will not be "word wrapped" into multiple lines but remain one single liner that extends the layers divs.

    Solution: Have a NEW membership/contact field type named "Link field" where a member just be able to fill in legit URLs and the field encloses the URL in a link tag where you can either then have it displayed as "Link" in the member profile…

  2. Age of member

    We would like an Age field calculated from the Date of Birth as we use Age of a member in competitions where there are groups for Age x and above, etc.

    This field could then be used for queries such as Age > n, etc.

    Also, a further enhancement, Age on date X. Where we have a closing date for entry to Events and we need to know the member's age on that date.

    Regards,

    Keith

  4. Section Divider - allow "Use In" setting to restrict where it appears

    We have several different member types - e.g., Candidates who submit to be published, and Subscribers of various types (electronic, print), with future disparate types to be added. The groups will have fairly different applications and fields, and thus different Section Dividers.

    I'd like to be able to specify when a Section Divider appears on an Application -- by Member type so that it never appears on an application for the wrong group. (Just like you can for other Membership Fields.)

    With just two main types of applications so far, I have been able to avoid this by shuffling the…

  5. Allow to make common fields readonly

    It would be very helpful to be able to add a common field which can be changed only by the administrator, but still be seen by non-members or members (depending on what options have been selected under common fields). This way a rating could be input by the administrator, without being accessable by the member, but still be viewable by anyone.

    For example the admin adds a new common field called 'Ratings' - Options set at 'for administrator access/input only' - Others access set at 'Anybody'- this would allow the administrator to manually add a rating to a member as…

  6. Enforcing 'terms and rules' field acceptance

    I would like to be able at member login to force members to agree to Terms and Rules if they have not already done so. Also, if Terms and Rules change, set the checkbox to unchecked so as to force all members to agree again.

  7. Numeric field type

    We had an old discussion about adding new type for a custom field - numbers:
    http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308920-archive/suggestions/8834458-create-numeric-fields-7304

    When we started our analysis work on this problem, we realized that we have no clear vision of what is underlying problem that our clients want to resolve with this new field type.

    Most comments were about export into Excel, so it can properly recognize numbers. But from our point of view, export itself is a workaround to another problem - something is missing in Wild Apricot functionality and you try to substitute it with export. This means that adding new field type will…

    This is on hold as of now. We analyzed and even prototyped a solution some time ago, but our priorities changed and now we’re focusing top-voted items – and this one has to wait its turn. But we will get back to it at some point, just cannot tell when yet.

  8. Condition-based display of fields for multi-level questions

    I would like to request creating a way to display a registration field based on a previous field selection.

    For example, If I have the question "Are you interested in learning about this committee?" If the answer is yes, I would like a second question to display. If the answer is no, I do not want the second question to display.

    I've been told this is not a current feature in Wild Apricot but think this would be very useful for membership, registration and donation forms.

  9. Automate finding duplicate contact/member records

    Is it possible to have a "check for duplicates" button? The only way I've been able to find them is to manually scan the contact list one by one, transfer info, and archive and delete the dupe.

  10. Database Fields Custom Validation - e.g. regular expression, IBAN Bank number, phone

    While I am pleased with the site overall, it's clear that it does lack some features that I consider essential, although not critical.

    One such feature is field validation of database records.

    Currently there is very limited field validation.

    I would request more robust import and user entry field validation capabilities to keep data clean. Without this capability, the database very quickly starts to contain garbage fields.

    For example, currently a user may enter their phone number in any format they choose, including completely invalid phone number entries. The same is true for zip code fields and others.

  11. Change Checkboxes for fields with Radio choice in Advanced Search - e.g. Membership level or Status

    Hi guys,

    I love the advanced search feature, with one exception. The "Radio Buttons" field should be searchable like a checkbox field is. This is the search for a radio button field:

    Whereas the checkbox search looks like this:

    I think they should have essentially the same options. There are some questions that I do not want members to have the option to choose multiples of - for example region. They can only live in one region, so I do not want them choosing 3-4 regions.

    However, I'd like to be able to run a search for those who are…

  12. Function to duplicate fields

    This is a prime example see attached image. The primary registrant has the option to choose from these options. I want to be able to dupe the field and call it "additional registrant 1 fees", "additional registrant 2 fees", "additional registrant 3 fees" and so on. Because the additional registrant would have the ability to choose a different option other than "primary, add 1, add 2, or add 3". The list attached is long and spending the time to rekey this list for 4 additional registrants takes a long time (hind-sight drop-down). So by duping and renaming any of the…

  13. Simplify contacts and saved searches - easy rename or update searches, combine Contacts and Members tabs

    would like option to rename: sometimes after you've done a search you realize that a different name would be better or you make a minor change to the query.

    We’re looking into this request in much broader context – we want to simplify overall management of contacts, lists, saved searches. Saved search should be perceived as smart lists and provide quick access to various contact and member groups.

  14. Validate e-mail addresses

    Member registration does not validate emails. This is an extra concern for sites like ours where members can join for free. Anyone can make up an email address, or worse impersonate someone else. Once an email is used, it cannot be used by another person, even if the first person is not the owner of the address and the second person is.

    Please consider adding an email validation check that sends an email and requires the applicant to use a code that was emailed (or click a link).

  15. Member group administrators / supervisors

    How about giving individuals the ability to renew at different times within the bundle rather than all at the same time? With flexible status, renewal dates and individual payment ability etc.. Would make our setup much more manageable that way... We have members in every county across the province, where different rates are charged in different counties. We would like to have 11 administrators across the province who can admin their own regions (bundles). That way all admins wouldn't have to see every email from every new or renewing member. We could make regional folks bundle admins with the members…

  16. Communications tracking (CRM)

    I am posting this suggestion based on email exchange with a client - so that we can get more feedback from others.

    Even though we don't normally refer to Wild Apricot as a CRM system, it has many things in common with CRM:


    • database of contacts


    • tracking of various transactions with each contact


    the suggestion is to take this further:


    • Add 'Communications tab' to track all communications/actions with each contact: contact date & contact type, follow-up date & type, a note, tracking of emails (opens, links) and links to related correspondence records (email blasts). Among other major benefits, the system…

  17. Birthday Emails

    It would be nice if we could have a function where a system email went out to someone on their birthday. We could get that information from the member profile.

  18. Change the default image size for picture fields and make it customizable

    I am using the Image Upload as part of my Registration Form. This image has a Max Size of 110 X 110 which appears very small, and there is no way to enlarge it. I encourage members to use the Photo Albums to upload additional images because these images in the Photo Albums do display a little larger. The main profile photo is what you see in the Member Directory and it is too small. It would be nice to have a click/mouse-over feature to make the image display a little larger. Thank You.

  19. Allow adding non-member contacts to Groups

    I just sent my first email blast to a group of contacts to follow up on a promotion, and found that there is not a way to assign a contact to a group. I just wanted to send an email to a very specific group of contacts (those that had attended a recent ski show, and entered our raffle). I thought I'd be able to assign them to a new group "ski show" so that I could send them a separate mailing. (What I ended up doing, was temporarily disabling mailing on other contacts, which thankfully right now we have…

  20. Change Field Type For Existing Database Fields

    I should like some flexibility to be able to change field types for existing database fields.

    For example I have fields which are current defined as text. However members give different responses to the question in terms of capitalisation, abbreviations etc which make the behaviour of the search on data in that field erractic.

    I'd like to be able to change such a text field to a picklist.

    The database would still store a text value but the choice available to new members would be restricted by the list. Existing membership records would continue to hold the existing data until…
