As with TangentRW and Anonymous, I would like to see the ability to change the options shown through the widget. In our case I would like to see the ability to remove the 'Maybe' option from the widget. When you have an event where you need a hard count of attendance, such as for meeting space or a headcount for meals, a 'Maybe' just makes it tough. Our issue is with meal planning where we have to give a count to the cater. If we count the 'maybe's' and they don't show then we are on the hook for those meals. You have 15 Maybe's and meals are $20/person, you can see how this adds up if they do not show up.
Please consider either allowing the widget to be modified or offer a couple of choices of the registration button macro.
I commented on the other thread that is similar to this and has a link to this thread. But I think it would be a valuable asset to have the ability to work on theme changes on a cloned website and then be able to move that work to your live site when you have it the way you want it. I am getting ready to update our site theme and like everyone else, this is a volunteer effort. I have 112 pages (way more than I need and will be parsing it down during this time) that I will have to individually update to the new theme. Just because you change the template does not mean that all of your content will lay out nicely on the pages, so one by one they have to be updated.
This is something that I will be going through shortly. I have had our site cloned so that I can experiment with a new theme as our existing theme is no longer supported. It will be great to work on the cloned site to see what changing will do to it. Looking at the theme preview on the cloned site I can see that I will have a lot of work ahead of me. It will take me a good week to make the changes and to do that over a live site, to me, does not seem like a professional way of doing things.
I think this is where I need to place my wishlist request. I need to generate a report that details membership numbers (by membership level) each month. I need to also be able to query the data to retrieve this data from months past. As an example, I need to know how many members we had at each level, by month, starting July 2015 and working forward.
Having a report like that would help me tremendously.
I'm totalling in agreement with this. I just went through the process of importing 3000+ contacts into our database so that we could send out emails to them. a little over 100 of those contacts were already paying members. When I import the contacts I set them to membership level ZZ-Needs Assigned. When I imported my list those that were already members were over-written on the membership category. Once I realized my mistake (luckily I had a recent backup) I had to go in and change back the membership level. Of course that also changed the Renewal Due date and the membership status level. At a minimum a warning box should pop up stating that you are about to overwrite existing data and ask if you want to proceed or not. That would have least warned me that I had duplicates.
Thank you for the quick response. Yes, my original post was regarding the deletion of a member category and those members that were in that category. While that was my original example, it didn't really get to the point I was trying to make. Hence the reason for the updated post.
What I really would like is what was described in my follow-up email; to be able to delete a specific, queried group of contacts. It seems that it should be an easy, albeit scary, request to be able to query archived members meeting additional criteria and then permanently delete them.
Right now my work-around is this: Export all archived members; Delete ALL archived contacts; open my exported xls file and purge the members that I originally wanted to delete; finally, import back in my revised list of archived members that I wanted to keep.
While this method works, it would be a lot easier to query the ones I want deleted and then simply delete them!
Thank you for thinking about this.
It's been a while since I posted the wishlist request, but I wanted to update a process that I see that a request like this would benefit.
As you know, you are not presented the Delete button until you choose a (single) archived contact. What I'd like to see is the ability to query specific criteria and then be presented with the option to delete based on that query.
We already kind of have this ability. If we go to Dashboard --> Account, we have the option to Delete All Contacts. When you click on that button, you have three options. It would be nice to see a fourth option that is called something like: Delete Current Queried Results. In my case I would have the following two query fields:
Contact Properties > all of selected > Archived
Notes > is > Conference Contact (when we import a large group of contacts to email, we add this note so we can track them).
Then...the ability to delete that query. That way I delete only the contacts that I query while keeping all other Archived contacts in place.
I understand that archived contacts do not count against our overall contact limit, but I had nearly 14000 contacts archived and it was bogging down the search time. I just want the ability to clean up the archives and get rid of those contacts that I no longer need, but still maintain archives of those that were past members that might come back.
Hope that helps clarify my intent with this wishlist request!
