  1. Officer Designations

    I would love to have some sort of "officer" designation capability. I use WA for three(!) nonprofits I'm involved with, each of which has volunteer officers. I've adjusted a few things and made all kinds of workarounds, but if there was a way to assign an officer position to a member, it would simplify many of our processes. Things this could help:

    An "officer" directory that is automatic (even if it had to be created through a saved search). My current workaround is to either 1) do a plain web page and list members, updating their info as it changes,…

  2. Database for things that members own

    I have been tasked with adding a special database to our Wild Apricot site.

    We need to list details of the boats that our members own and I would dearly
    like them to be able to update the info on their boat themselves (it will
    save me a lot of work!).

    I would like to have quite a large number (around 30) customisable fields,
    some with free text entry and some with drop down menu choices.

    I need to add at least one photo, preferably more, to each record.

    It needs to be searchable on any field.

    There would ideally…

  3. Managing email subscriptions to forum updates

    Current behavior:
    Members can subscribe to receive updates about forum posts by email - by going to the forum and clicking on a subscription link in that forum or topic
    However, there is no way for administrator to view their subscription status or change it.
    If administrator wants to subscribe them manually, the only way is to log in under member's profile (so he has to know the password) and subscribe to forums as if he is this member - very crude workaround.
    Admin can only remove subscriptions from member records.

    Desired behavior:
    - Allow administrator to subscribe member(s) to…

  4. Print Member List

    I need to have a hard copy of all of our members to keep onsite at the club for check-in. Our format is one printed page per member to allow for handwritten notes, record guests, etc. Is there a way to print the member list, or suggestions for how to export the info?

  5. Customizable username for forums

    Does anyone know how to change how members show up when they post a comment in the Forum?

    Because we have members real names blocked, all members that post show up as "Anonymous Member" in posts.

    When members apply for membership, they select a "Profile" Member name.

    Is there a way for this discreet "Member / Profile" name to show up in posts instead of having to unblock their real names or only show "Anonymous".

    Any help greatly appreciated.

  6. Ability to schedule follow-up event email to attendees

    I would like the ability to be able to schedule a follow-up email to all attendees of an event when the event is built.

    We send out a customer satisfaction survey to all overnight/fly trip participants, and it would be great to just pre-load these in the event as we do Reminder emails and other customized event emails so they can go out consistently a few days after the event is over.

    Currently there is no way to schedule a customized email to go out automatically AFTER the event is over.

  7. Bulk import of attendees

    We sometime invoice institutions for a group of attendees. It would be great to have an excel file that can be imported per event to populate the list of attendees.

    Hello everyone! 

    Seeing your activity on this thread we would like to present you with three new templates using the third-party app called “Integromat”. They could help you to: 
    - Copy an event with registrants 
    - Export registrations into a Google sheet 
    - Import registrations from a Google sheet 

    These need a short one-time setup and then you’ll be able to do the actions above in just a few clicks! 

    For more info see our blog: https://www.wildapricot.com/blogs/newsblog/2019/04/30/event-registration-integromat 

    We absolutely understand this is not a solution but more of a workaround for this request, so we won’t close this thread. But feel free to share your thoughts about these templates as well! 

    Please note, these workflows have some limitations and might not suit everybody. But we hope they will make your life a bit easier.

  8. Print Calendars in Landscape Mode

    Would be very helpful to have the ability to print the calendars in landscape mode one month at a time for handouts (currently it seems to do a random number of weeks based on the current date), and control the fonts.

  9. Internal Notes box on Event Details Form

    Would it be possible to have an internal notes box on the Event Details form? We often want to store information relating to an Event, such as minimum required numbers, target number of participants or internal deadline dates, but we don't want these to appear on the web.

    Would this be useful for anyone else?

  10. Manual donations or pledges

    A big selling point for my board in adopting WA is that I promised them that we could accommodate all kinds of payments for new and renewing members. I have found two areas where WA does not currently do what I expected:


    • for donations, there is not manual payment option, only online. My most financially capable donors are older and really, really like getting an invoice and mailing in a check On the whole, I love WA! These, and a few other little feature/functions are the only issues I've got. And, user support has been fantastic. I'm in the e-commerce…

  11. Add time for registration deadlines

    Hi, WA folks. I have some suggestions for setting closing registration dates for events.

    Right now, these dates:

    1) Can only be changed by editing each membership registration type (eg member, guest, etc);

    2) Can be expressed only in absolute calendar dates (such as "May 15") – and only for the day itself, not for the time – not for a date relative to the event (such as "2 days before the event").

    My organisation has a dinner meeting one Wednesday per month, the booking deadline for which is always at 7:00 pm on the Monday beforehand. Even though I…

  12. Create NEWSLETTER from Web Pages

    After I add/update the web pages, I would like to extract the data to create a NEWSLETTER and send it in a BLAST EMAIL to our MEMBERS. It would be Great if a MACRO was created where I could insert a list of URL NAMES that would be sent with the Email and opened when the Recipient opens the Email. This would save much duplicate work of manually creating the NEWSLETTER.

    It is IMPORTANT that I can select the URLs since every web page is NOT updated every month.

    I suspect that many other administrators would also appreciate this feature.

  13. Future-dating blog posts

    I would like to have a feature added to the Blog module.

    In many cases, I will write several blog posts at once, though I would like to have them post in different dates in the future. I am able to do this on blogspot and it is really handy if you want to set up regular posts, reminder posts, etc. and keep the action going!

    Would you consider that the blog-post would only post on the (activate) day that is used in the top of each post?

    Thanks in advance,
    Patty

  14. Enhancements for dealing with lapsed members

    I understand that this most recent software update has introduced a change in the way that lapsed members are handled. Let's assume that we have WA set up so that renewal is once per year and occurs on the member's join date. According to the way I understand the online documentation, if a member is lapsed, then if they renew, a new renewal date is assigned, meaning that they don't owe any back dues. However, if a member is active and they are in arrears, they then do owe the back dues. (It's not clear from the documentation how this…

  15. Consolidated event announcements

    We run 3-5 events per week, so using the scheduled event email blasts are not an option as we would be bombarding people with emails all the time.

    What would be great if we could consolidate all of the events in a single email and send that as a newsletter. I imagine it being something like the events list that could be inserted into the email like a widget or gadget.

    Is there a way to do something like this currently?

    Thanks Kerrie-Anne

  16. Add and manage xml sitemap for SEO

    Bing, Yahoo! and Google all recommend a site map be submitted to their crawl services in order that URLs on a website are brought into their crawlers' awareness. Otherwise the bots generally rely on quantity of cross linking from other sites and for many of our members this is very hit or miss — resulting in many member page never making into SERPs.

    We would greatly appreciate some mechanism for adding and managing XML site maps for all, or better yet, specific pages of a WA member site.

    Thanks to Barbara, here is current workaround:
    --
    TO ADD A SITEMAP.XML to a WA SITE:
    Create a new folder under file mangement called sitemap.
    Then upload your site map to this folder.
    Sumbit your site map to Google, it will look something like this yoursite.com/resources/sitemap/sitemap.xml

    A good place for free google sitemaps is:
    xml-sitemaps.com

  18. Can we have an option to create and send a pdf of the invoice

    We are getting requests from event attendees for a pdf or a hardcopy of the invoice as organisations won't accept an email as an official invoice

  19. Scholarship Application Management

    Our non-profit provides multiple scholarships throughout the year- we take applications from students, early to mid-career professionals, and professionals nominating a mentor.

    Currently, we are at a loss on how to best create these. We have been using the events section, but it seems to be confusing the people who need to fill out the application.

    It would be nice to have a module dedicated to Scholarship Application Management with the ability to require that someone be at a specific membership level to apply.

  20. Show new messages / comments since last login

    Our forums are languishing because our members say there's no easy way to tell what conversations are active. We need a search function at the top of the forum that includes things like:

    -recent posts

    -active topics

    -unanswered posts

    Basically, the forums need a major upgrade in order to be useful. The only reason we haven't moved to a different forum software is because we want to maintain one login for our members.

    Thanks.
