    Is there any update to this? Emails to Gmail and others still arrive with the red padlock. Not everyone understands it but they all get worried when google puts a red warning icon by all our emails.

    Google's help files say "If you've received a message with the red lock icon, let the sender know and they can contact their email service provider." It would be great to know if this is being considered for an update.

    Thanks MTWPAM, I cannot understand why this is so problematic for WA. With over 200 votes it seems like a popular request and yet there's been no response as far as I can see for over 4 years. Back then the comment was "We use votes as a measure of interest in particular ideas and prioritize them higher in our development plans." An indication of where feature is in the priority list would be great.

    Just to add my voice to this thread. This would be a great feature and one we'd use immediately if it was available. Would this not be possible with an extra field on the event setup page to record a numeric 'CPD Hours' value. Then have an accumulated total on the members page for all events where they have been checked in? Or allow us to export an 'event attendance report with this as a field. However it's implemented please consider adding it as a feature.

    Hi another seemingly popular request for a change that would appear to be fairly straightforward and surprisingly not already implemented as part of the platform 'basics'. Can we please have an update?

    Hi, is this ever going to see development? You said it stood little chance of being implemented in 2011, then lots of links, none of which work now, in 2015 and here we are another 6 years on and still nothing. Can someone let us have an update? Thanks

    The offline icon is confusing for many. With no cards indicated it appears that whatever payment system we have, it's not working. Why not remove the icon altogether and let people choose from the options available after they click Register - they're not committed at that stage and if they don't want to use the options available they can cancel. This would be much clearer. With Katya's comments below and a member of the support team today agreeing that this wish list item is reasonable. It would be good to see this small change being made.

    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.

    Alex, thank you, I really appreciate the clarity you have brought to this discussion. I can see now the stronger links you have in place with Personify and WA. NewPath's model is a very successful one across online platforms and I'm sure it will work very well for you and for the many WA clients out there. I may well take another look in time.

    I agree, it is becoming more obvious that Wild Apricot is seen by the team as a mature product and the will to invest in anything more than the rough edges is diminishing. Even very simple requests for an extra field here or there, which are popular and would not be technically challenging go without response. If that leads to positive opportunities for you to offer better modules and greater integration then I wish you well.

    I can't help but feel if the 'heart' of Personify's allegiance to WA has gone and any real will for them to invest in it's development is lost we will have to review again where our solution lies. Who knows maybe a NewPath/WA solution is the answer, it's on the list as a possible option.

    Alex, thank you. I came to WA after looking at a lot of others and shared your view that it was one of the best out there. One of the things I liked was the way they seemed to respond to clients requests via this board.

    I will always prefer a single solution to a business need, accepting that there may be a price for that privilege. Using third party add ons to support a product leaves me with 3 main problems.

    1. Development - What if one supplier stops supporting the others or changes theirs so it works better standalone or with new platforms but now conflicts with the co-existence of the ones I now rely on. Will WA, Wordpress and NewPath always play nicely together? Consider if you designed a great LMS solution that integrated with WA. But their recent purchase of MemberClicks means they'd prefer WA clients used that, as opposed to other solutions like yours it's not hard to imagine they could start making that option difficult. Their apparent preference for acquiring solutions in-full rather than build integration leads me to consider these factors

    2. Price - now I have to worry about the pricing structure of two or possibly more even companies. I accepted WA's recent increase as it is the only price I pay for the product. You may be offering some Beta Access levels of yours free for now but will that be the case for ever? There is already an annual cost for your Reporting and QuickBooks integration. Don't get me wrong, they look good, you deserve to charge for them and the current rates appear very reasonable. I wish you well with the product line you've developed. But for me, having to include other company's pricing levels into my evaluation of a product rates badly.

    3. Product Future - If a company brings a product to market, agreed by us both to be one of the best out there, and then doesn't have the will or skills to innovate and develop that product, the future is not a bright one for any of it's clients. This specific request, with significant support has been here since 2015. If in 6 years the best WA is happy to accept for it's customers by way of solution is - go to NewPath then the writing is on the wall for me.. I sincerely wish you well with your solutions, it looks like you listen to the market and develop accordingly. Do you have any plans for a full AMS solution :-)

    If anyone else here has reached the end of this post, I apologise for the length of it, I wonder if the sudden flurry of activity here will stir any response from WA?

    Hi Alex, thank you for coming back to me, I'm sure your solution works. The worry for me using these 'linked' solutions is I now need to worry about either side changing. What if WA alter their system and it's no longer compatible with Wordpress integration. Or WordPress alters. Neither side is going to consider the needs of the other other (or me) in their own platform development. I'm sure you have an elegant solution which may well work for many, but it let's WA off the hook a bit when I think they should be responding to the level of demand from users to add this functionality to the platform they offer. It's a worrying trend from WA, if you look at their roadmap, they seem to be focussing on integration with 3rd party apps rather than developing their own platform.

    Thanks Alex, whilst that may work it shouldn't be up to us to design workarounds for something that ought to be part of the platform. Even before the new pricing structure this should be a basic function available. Evgeny said in 2015 '[this] they should be solved together. At over 329 votes it's a popular request and should be getting attention. Suggesting a workaround with WordPress makes me consider entirely new platform options that include this facility out of the box as a better solution.

    Being able to register for a number of events and then pay once would be huge benefit for us. We hold a number of grouped events, usually 6 and people often don't want all 6 but a mixture of individual ones relevant to them. The current system of book one then go to the next and book that etc etc is time consuming and fairly archaic. It does seem like a popular idea and yet it appears this thread was first posted in 2009 - is that right?
