Another vote for this one. Currently I manually go in and check to see when the member renewed (After Reminder 1, 2, 3 or 4 was sent to them) and store this information in an Excel file. Adding another field where WA would automatically capture this info would be SUCH a time saver.
I could see the report columns as:
- Transaction date
- Transaction type (new, renewal, or lapsed)
- If renewal, include the number of reminders they were sent
I also include a field for how they first heard about us, and how long they've been subscribed to our email newsletter before joining. That's specific to our organization, but if you could customize those columns that would be great.
I agree that something needs to be implemented.
In another thread, we brought up the question of late renewal dates. (Should it be 1 year from payment or 1 year from original renewal date?) Seems like these two issues can be combined into one solution.
The workarounds suggested sound good too. I especially like VCOMA's idea of elevating the member status of those who renew early or on time.
Ratings would be greatI Users could give a "Thumbs up" or a number rating.
Could this be tied into a user "ranking" system just like WA has in this forum? Including number of posts, how long ago the user joined, etc?
We do this manually -- just by adding another field and asking them to retype -- and it works well, though it would be great to have it function officially as a re-type email field.
