    Agreed that it would be useful - but absolutely MUST by default be turned off. Also when enabled - this must be in such a way that it is restricted to being used only from a specific page in the 'Public (signed on members view of the site)'

    Here it should be an option within a specific member search.

    This would mean that you would be able to control which members are able to do mail blasts and to whom they can do mail blasts.

    I can say from previous experience prior to using Wild Apricot, when we handled our emails by just adding in a list of recipients in an Outlook (or whatever) email that we had way too many inappropriate emails going to our complete membership as some recipients collected these email addresses (when an approved sender sent as To: or CC: instead of BCC:)

    Yes - only allowing your Admins to send email blasts can be a pain - but it does manage far better the quality and volumes of emails going to members. And believe me - 'Too many' emails to members from the organization is a very common complaint.

    If/when such email blast capability is added to a directory search results, it also needs to be a much simpler workflow that the current email blast process - otherwise we will have way too many disasters.

    I also think that the forums should be enhanced to operate in a listserv mode.

    Bulk emails and Listserv/forum are really 2 totally different things

    So tried this piece of code as shown and it works just fine.

    However some questions:

    1. Can it be used in any other way to display any other fields from the logged in user? Example: First name only, email address, phone number and any other fields that have been defined for that membership level by the system administrator. If so what would the revised code look like?

    2. Can it be used to display any fields from a specified contact (member) that is hard coded (not derived from the current logged in member)?

    So looks like this was proposed by WA team over 2 years ago now. No objections - only agreements. So when can we expect to see this feature added.

    I would however suggest that this be a feature in the directory list gadget that can be enabled/disabled by the web site admin on a per instance basis. Default to be disabled to correspond to current functionality.

    Now that ALL plans have the exact same functionality with the exception of number of members, why not allow any incremental number of contacts in say chunks of 25 or 50 contacts at a time. For customers paying annually - as they increase number of contacts - prorate the billing for the remainder of the year.
