Because we are such a widely-dispersed group geographically, I’d like to set up some saved-searches to help us target some of our event emails to reasonable distances from various locations - such as within 100 miles of Boston or San Francisco - when just the state won’t do the trick. 100 miles from Boston can include towns in NH, RI, CT, and ME as well as those from MA, but not include towns in far western MA. CA is such a big state, we’d like avoid sending them to folks who live the San Diego/Los Angeles part of the state. Do you have any tools like this? I have put together saved-searches for large regions, like the "Southeast" and the "Pacific Northwest", but it sure would be easier to have a proximity setting…
At one point, pre-Wild-Apricot, I programmed a search feature for our website that used a table of zip codes and their latitude/longitudes and was able to search our users and generate a list of folks who lived within any given radius of any given zip code. It would be really helpful if you had something like this.
