    First let me say I have a 6 year old WA site and love it.

    A guide (online or e-book okay) is my preference. Right now I could use one to help me determine if the customizations I want to make need to happen in the “Colors and Styles”, CSS overrides, API, etc. I have a project that I want to accomplish where I need to wade into those things right now.

    There are two parts to my project with my 6 year old WA site:
    1) I want to change the entire WA site colors and theme to a updated design which is mobile responsive.
    2) I want to display the event calendar information on a public webpage on a different site from my WA site in a format that is different from the standard grid calendar provided in the widget. I could additionally have the calendar display in the custom format within WA too if it makes things easier to implement.

    I don’t do this full time, so my skills are rusty and my time limited, however with a guide I could quickly get to the right place to find the information I need.

    Without repeating what others have said I concur with

    I'm very glad that this functionality is being added. I'd be using this to target emails to inactive users and archiving those members that I didn't receive a response and who have not logged in for a long time. Also I'd be using it for security reasons as well.

    Yes, I agree this would be a good feature. We have been using the database for quite some time and have offered a Free membership level. However if we run several campaigns over a certain time period to get those free members to login and use the system, but they do not then we'd like to put them into a cycle where we would send them emails about deactivating their membership.

    Tracking the number of logins and last login we could tell who was active and who isn't now, who was never an active user (say less than 2 login per year for example) and make intelligent decisions on how to go about deactivating the memberships or who to ask for feedback about why they stopped being so active etc.

    This would be very useful, number of logins, in the exported contact list.

    Thank you for considering this wishlist request.

    Yes, this feature would be very useful. We too are doing our best to see if our members are getting what they want from their membership. We would like to see for all members the number of times they logged in for a period of time as well as statistics that summarize usage. We could see if there are averages, peak times, low times.

    Feedback is often difficult to get from members, but this would go a long way to helping us to target emails or see if their membership is getting used much. I agree that also a count on what pages they are visiting would be great. Google's statistics are useful, but not if content is behind a password.

    Armed with this data of high, average and low use members I could send targetted emails and trim any non-responsive members out.

    Thank you so much for considering this.

    We use the recurring option for several different membership levels. Coupons are a great way to give members incentive to upgrade or join.

    I too would like to have the option to have the same discount apply to every month for the life of the membership. One thing we are attempting to do is create an incentive for someone to keep their recurring payments active every month. Once promotion we came up with is, as long as you keep automatically renewing you membership you save $ each month. Manually renewing you do not get the savings.

    In addition it would be good to have 1st month at the discount and the remaining months at the regular price. This would be ideal to have a person join, 1st month for 1/2 price the remaining months at regular price.

    If I had to choose one or the other I'd take the same discount every month since it could be a more flexible marketing tool.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I wanted to find out if Wild Apricot integrates with any affiliate tracking software and after reading this discussion I understand the background and why there isn't any.

    I was looking into Post Affiliates Pro integration for tracking sales and a % based commission. I am using PayPal Payments Pro to accept payments for memberships. I'd like to track sales from affiliate sites/emails by using something like a special affiliate id in the incoming URL. Basically the same as what is outlined in the post by ptorto1 would work. We've got to know where the new member came from to determine what affiliate gets credit for the sale.

    I currently have a group of affiliates ready to go if I can get some kind of tracking, possibly even having the system store an affiliate id into the new contact record. The id would be passed into the sign up form from the referring URL. Then the completed sale could be tracked manually at a minimum since the affiliate id would be saved with the contact record. Just an idea.

    Can you give us an update on this feature? I'd like to know either way since I am making business plans that hinge on this.

    Thank you for your assistance and Happy New Year

    Thank you for this post! You've made it easy to implement comments. One question, can I use this code even on restricted access members only pages within my Wild Apricot site?
