    We would support this too.

    Particularly in relation to the ability to create simple calendar events - and have members submit their own events as per this wishlist thread: http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825554-members-to-be-able-to-submit-events-3764

    Sorry for the late update.

    The first step was finished and emails can now be carbon copied to contact’s alternative emails. To do so the contact fields which store the alternative emails must be explicitly marked on the email setting page.

    Unsubscribing will unsubscribe all alternative emails simultaneously because they all belong to the very same account. The person clicking “unsubscribe” is warned about this on the unsubscribe page.

    For now we paused the development of this feature. but not for good. :) So I’m changing this wish status back to “collecting comments”.

    Thank you everyone for a valuable feedback.

    We handle multiple individuals within a family exactly as other posters have suggested, by creating a "Household" bundle that we limit to 6 members - and I like this approach. It makes the principal member responsible for a membership package and payment, whilst allowing all bundle members to receive communications.

    Having said that it does count against our overall contacts database allowance which is clearly a downside for our organisation cost wise.

    As Chief_Apricot has said this is really an issue for WA in their pricing and structure of levels, rather than an additonal feature request.

    Could you simply review the database limits for each level of WA service - perhaps 500 / 1000 level change between group & community rather than the 250 / 500.

    You could also make a simple offer such as, "Every 'bundle' membership can have one secondary member at no cost to your WA limit"

    A more complex alternative idea: perhaps WA could consider the possibility of effectively discounting "bundle members" to some extent. You could do this by keeping your existing levels limits the same but treating bundle members as being less "valuable" or a fraction (in terms of how they count against our allowance) of an ordinary entry.

    I like the technical solution as it stands, so these are just some of my thoughts on how to get to the same end result at less cost for us WA users.

    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

    We would also find great benefit in having simple calendar items submitted by members but remaining hidden until admin approval. As with others here we have had no use for paid / registration events so far. We tend to use the "Events" section as more of a "What's on locally guide"

    If event organisers could submit their own entries directly, that would be fantastic.

    The multiple calendar option suggested by others wouldn't work for us - we like the possibility of having all events visible in a single calendar.

    Colour coding or categorising events that are "our own" as opposed to relevant local events not organised by us would be a plus, but not essential.
