          Hi Denys,

          Sorry for my delay in replying.

          I am pretty sure that email blasts sent to event attendees are not going to the contact address, but to the event registration address. That is the problem.

          I am getting bounced emails for addresses that do not show up in a Contacts search. They are the addresses used for the original registration.

          Thanks

          Paul

          I am noticing that this is definitely how the system now works: if I change a contact's email address, the change does not get propagated to their event registrations. This can't be intentional - can it?

          Paul at PEN commented  · 

          If a contact's email address has changed, and I email all attendees of a past event which this contact attended, the email still goes to the old email address with which he originally signed up for that event.

          So, I'm emailing attendees from last year's annual conference, about this year's conference, and I'm getting bounce messages, because it's going to his old address, even though I have updated the email address in his contact sheet.

          This seems like a bug...

              Request: Ask people unsubscribing from emails for their reason. Also allow admin to fill in comment e.g. if email is bouncing.

                It is really necessary to have a checkbox for every email the system sends to a member as the result of an administrative action. I have no idea when it is and when it is not going to spit out an email to a member as the result of something I do.

                It is a source of embarassment to us and confusion to our members, when, for example they get an email with an incomprehensible message like "Renewal date changed to Never", when I was discreetly (or so I thought) correcting their membership status.

                Please can we be given some control over what the system sends out?

                Thank you,

                Paul

                  #1 is the addition I see as most necessary. For our membership-based events, we may only want members to bring 1 guest each. An optional field e.g. "Relationship to guest" would be helpful too, so we could make clear that only spouses and children can be brought as guests.

                  A variation on this that would be useful is to only allow members to sign up other members, or certain types of members, or bundle members to sign up other members of their bundle. Our bundles are schools, and we would like them to be able to sign up teachers in groups, but not for teachers to sign up all their friends!

                  I've been asking for this for a long time, especially the ability to pay for membership and an event together... there are many similar requests in this thread: http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825548-online-store-5506

                    Any chance of this happening? AND, OR & NOT between each search criterion? It seems like a strange lack for an advanced search system.

                    Thanks,
                    Paul

                      Here is an article about the value of monthly donations: http://www.fundraising123.org/article/how-convert-one-time-or-annual-donors-monthly-givers

                      "Thinking about monthly giving is one of the smartest things you can do as a fundraiser. At Network for Good, we find that 30-40% of the donation volume for a nonprofit website is monthly giving, and that would be a great situation to find all nonprofits in-thanking people every month instead of asking them for donations every few weeks."

                      It's really essential to have this feature on a non-profit website.

                      I would like to add my vote for this before you relegate it. 

                      If something's already on the roadmap, people may not see the need to reply/vote. We've been waiting 2 1/2 years since the OP for what is a very basic, important fundraising tool.

                        Even though it is not a direct implementation, I hope this could be helpful:

                        We just launched integration with Integromat platform, which helps to build automated workflows. We also provide several templates for quick start, and one of them allows to copy google calendar events into WA events. So if you share a google calendar for events submission, then the scenario could copy submitted events into your Wild Apricot account.
                        You can try this integration by this link https://www.integromat.com/en/integration/2275-copy-google-calendar-into-wild-apricot-events

                        Can I ask why not? This is obviously an important issue for a lot of people. It has been in demand for years and you said you had the system basically designed and that it would be included in 3.4 or 3.5 in early 2010.

                        Is this scheduled for v4.0?
