I agree a really great feature to add!!
We have redesigned email settings and extended subscription options for event announcements and email blasts as well. See details in presentation: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1bj4iE_bnw_mhLM2u5KMoH6WTCh4n0oPZkDXdB2folt4/pub?start=false&loop=false&delayms=3000
I vote to include Forum subscription fields in the database import and export function for analysis purposes, as others on this thread have suggested.
Also to set them. We have a Board Forum, it would be nice to be able to offload the Board group annually to set the subscriptions.
I think we agree with this comment by Mark commented January 2, 2017 8:29 PM Flag as inappropriate
Allow membership level changes only during renewal -
Provide a selection under Levels that allows members to change levels only when renewing.
That would satisfy our requirements. No need to pro-rate, offer refunds, etc. Members would simply renew at the new level, at the appropriate rate, and for the same membership term.
Our initial membership term is 3 years, our renewal 2 years.
The Renewal button on the profile causes problems, it suggests they can renew for 3 years, and will do it .... wrong term and wrong rate.
We have found we can instruct our members to use the Change button on their profile to select the Renewal membership at the right rate. It is a work around, but will do the job.
But any user can click on the Renewal button and cause issues.
We would like an option to remove / hide that Renewal button from the initial member profile page and the member edit page.
