After initial analysis we decided to remove this feature from 2017 plans. Right now we don’t have clear understanding when this feature will be taken into development.
I would be glad to see this show up as a notification in the WA mobile app.
It would need to trigger a obvious notification (sound, vibrate, visual, slap on the head).
SMS would be a nice addition to email however with the growing number of smart phones in our member base, SMS is really more of a nice to have option. Cost would be an important factor as our club would not want to eat any per message charges given that email is free.

Merged together several closely related by meaning ideas – so we can properly resolve them all together, in different live scenarios
I am trying to work around a common problem with email notifications for high priority notifications. Most of our members would prefer that high priority notifications come as a text message I know you hare probably tired of hearing about this request)
With a little more flexibility such as customization of the from email address, we could use the iPhone VIP feature which would provide a great Notification driven by an email.
The Gmail client Priority Inbox provides more flexibility in that you can identify a priority email based on email Subject criteria.
Critical must-have functionality for most clubs or associations. In our case volunteer hours are required as part of a membership.
