I'd like users to be able to opt-in to a job forum and maybe other forums on the membership application form.
Can you include a feature to make the forum subscription component of the user's profile visible on the member's app page? I would include it on the database field page, as if it were a system field.
(It would also be nice to be able to query on this field when doing email blasts. Ideally you could set these flags for members as appropriate during a data upload.)
I'm ok with requiring them to be opt in, though some might request the ability to designate the default as checked or unchecked for each forum.
For our purposes any membership level that has privileges to the forum should be able to opt in on the membership app.
We can kludge this via a custom database field and do email blasts via queries, but that would not sync with the forum subscription button on the forum page.
