Sorry for the late update.
The first step was finished and emails can now be carbon copied to contact’s alternative emails. To do so the contact fields which store the alternative emails must be explicitly marked on the email setting page.
Unsubscribing will unsubscribe all alternative emails simultaneously because they all belong to the very same account. The person clicking “unsubscribe” is warned about this on the unsubscribe page.
For now we paused the development of this feature. but not for good. :) So I’m changing this wish status back to “collecting comments”.
Thank you everyone for a valuable feedback.
This is becoming a seriously big issue for BOTH organizations I represent. Both use WA and both need - really NEED - this feature.
Here's the problem at the first organization:
Because we have family memberships, the primary email address goes to one spouse/partner. As a result, only one of them receives emails. So the other spouse/partner then signs up as a "contact" which does two things:
1) inflates our contact list, causing us to go over our 500 allocation every few months, until I am forced to archive out all the spouses which just gets them all angry and me and at WA for the lack of features, and
2) still prevents the spouse from getting all the emails anyway because quite a few only go to "members only" so then I get complaints that WA isn't working properly.
Here's the problem at the second organization: We have group memberships purchased by companies but the individual memberships need that second email because they lose their membership and event history when they change jobs and emails. This has created a record-keeping nightmare when trying to sort it all out. We are all volunteers - none of us get paid for all the hours of sorting that happens and we're having serious problems trying to recruit volunteers to help because NO ONE wants to do this kind of manual clean-up on a regular basis (which it has become).
Honestly, I'm tired of defending WA on this and at this point, I can't recommend that anyone move to WA if they need this feature - it's become that big a problem for us. This was something that you had on your development list for all of 2015, you moved it to a Q4 2016 release, now you've downgraded it. Why? This has a lot of votes, you have a lot of reasons and examples of why this is needed. Please, please, please, move this up the list!
Is this going anywhere? I ask because this was listed as an enhancement that was to have been in the Sept 2016 bundle/release but then it was pushed to the end of 2016 and now it looks like it's still in the "collecting comments" step.
This is something that we've needed for the last three years and the members are getting restless.
Since all the spouses and significant others have added themselves as "contacts" to get around this and we keep going over our allotted number of contacts.
Merged together several closely related by meaning ideas – so we can properly resolve them all together, in different live scenarios
Collecting comments now.
I merged another very similar thread into this one, they should be solved together – the registration to multiple events should be simple and fast if possible. There are a number of suggestions in comments on how to achieve this.
We would LOVE this feature!
This would make the calendar easier to read by making it easy to see which committee is doing what and when at a glance.
It would make several of the other suggestions that I've seen here null and void because this would address a lot of the problems.
A question to supporters: is that important to have in QB all order lines of invoices from WA, or it is enough to merge them all to a single line with total sum?
Whoops! Posted too soon.... Here are our top two use cases:
1) We want select users (via Group) to access pages with reports posted and as of now, we have no reliable way to see if they are even hitting the page we designed for them.
2) Last Login is not a reportable field so we do not have the ability to pull a list of members/users who have not logged in within the x number of days/months (insert time frame here).
Absolutely everything in the original post!
As a social/sporting club, we have a FaceBook page and an Instagram account that we'd like to link to our events. This would make the management so much more seamless as well as save a boatload of time. As an all volunteer organization, this would be a HUGE timesaver since we all have full-time jobs/families to manage.
