We use the Donations page primarily NOT for donations, but for payments that aren't a membership or an event. For example, to order items such as award trophies.
We would like the ability to change the word "Donations" to something else like "Payments" everywhere it occurs.
For one thing, this would reduce any confusion or possible audit for our members when IRS sees an invoice for "Donations" being written off as a business expense!
I would like the ability to get a "snapshot" of membership statistics (such as the Member List/Summary table) at any given date in the past since joining WildApricot. This would be very helpful in such things as "how has membership grown since certain dates in the past, or after our last three conferences". Right now I have to manually remember each December to take a snapshot of our member stats, and this would only give a year-to-year comparison.
This is not #1, but it is important for my non-US members. They need invoices that have certain information including the association's name, address and (optional) bank info or tax ID. The WildApricot email invoice template can be edited to add this. But the online invoice does NOT have this. It should be possible for me to add this either by checkboxes (e.g. Wild Apricot adds it) or manually just like email templates. The important reason is that a member logging into their account cannot see the email invoice (which has the correct info for European accounting), they only see the Wild Apricot invoice record which doesn't even say what association created the invoice. I hope this request is clear, because my European members are clearly mad at not having this info on their invoices!

Please review results of our analysis and design:
Post your comments/ideas right here. Until we see major disapproval, this is what we will develop in one of future releases.
This also is extremely important to our association. I would like to add my voice to get it higher on the Roadmap.
The one other feature I'd find very important is the ability for a member to add additional email addresses of persons who can also be on the forum. These would typically be employees who also want to read and contribute to the forum discussion.
A simpler alternative is to allow the possibility of a different email address for forum traffic. For example, if the Member's publicly-shown email is "firstname.lastname@example.org", they'd have an option to use a different email address such as "email@example.com" to send and receive email.
In our association, forum contributors often are not the main contacts (top management) for a member company. The contributors are often the technical or marketing people.
