    Good point, we will consider this.

    For now I would like to collect feedback on how people use the new functionality - would appreciate comments from others!

    Am I correct that credit in your case corresponds to partially/fully unused payment?

    If so, have you considered using 'Comment to payer' field in payments? This field is shown to the contact.

    The internal notes are designed to be admin-only so we would not show them to the contact.

    Thanks for posting. This makes good sense, especially making this a special separate option on the membership level (so that it can be separate from other possible one-off fees)

    Fred,

    Thanks for posting - though for now I doubt this is feasible. Email is not a very reliable medium in terms of timely delivery, due to server loads on our side and/or recipients side actual time from initiating the sending to delivery can be in pretty broad range.

    Nevertheless, maybe there is another way to improve in this are - e.g. send a few hours (2-4) before, etc.

    I would appreciate comments from other users.

    Steve, thanks for posting. Before we go into a (potentially very broad) topic of dynamic pages/APIs, I wonder if this can be narrowed down to something with a simpler solution,

    Can you give us more examples of stuff you would want to display on the page?

    You should be able to display member's name already, see examples here:

    http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Theme+overrides

    Your other example was Chapter name - which I assume would be a field in the member record?

    Can you elaborate - why would you need a gadget to list past events?

    In our next version 4.3 payments will be fully decoupled from invoices/transactions - e.g. it will be possible for one payment to cover event registration AND a membership application. (Though donations are treated separately/differently as they do not have 'invoices')

    So I would like to wait until version 4.3 (early December) and then resume this conversation to review possible ways to address this request.

    The challenge is that receipts correspond to payments and payment can be for one or multiple invoices. This will become even bigger consideration in v 4.3 (early Dec 2011) when we will allow paying any combination of open invoices online. So event-specific payment receipt does not look like the best path to explore - though I would love to hear feedback/ideas on this.

    One idea we have - and we will try to include it in 4.3 - is to enable event field macros in templates, then it would be possible to collect address fields on events and then include those.

    Thanks, that's a very important point for us to keep in mind.

    Gordon, good point.

    I wonder if we should take it a step further: scan emails and and provide a warning if it contains unrecognized macro. What do you think?

    OK, thanks for elaborating. Let's see what other users have to say on this.

    Can you elaborate further on why not use an advanced search? You can create a saved search for quick access.

    This has been raised - personally I have a number of concerns (e.g. if you have several levels of access, this can easily lead to visitor confusion and frustration - I am logged in, why can't see this page? Also, I believe many user might find it unsecure to share even the existence of some pages with public visitors)

    Also I feel that much better approach is to create some public-visible content with some excerpts/teasers - it would likely be much more attractive than just page names.

    I would love to hear from others on this.

    #1 is part of what we do in CMS redesign - will be available in version 5.0 (Q1 2012)

    So let's focus this thread on #2. This has come up before and I would like to get more input/comments:

    Should restricted pages always be hidden from menu/shown in menu/user choice? And why.

    very cool collaboration to come up with a useful and functional way to handle officers!

    Thanks for posting - appreciate the detailed wrap up. This definitely sounds like something we should be considering - I know many clubs can use this - though I could not find prior posts on our wishlist. So we will now collect comments/votes and put this into our enhancements queue for future versions.

    My point is not that I doubt that staff should have higher level-access but rather that since each member might have a slightly different view, we need to come up with a sensible way for staff to have somewhat matching view - otherwise preview makes less sense it would not match the view of any particular member. Am I making sense?

    Thanks Robbi, it's a fair point, the challenge is that if admin is not a member, we need to figure out what to do with certain pages, e.g.
    * What membership level should be assumed/emulated for access to member-only content, membership directory, event registration types etc.
    * What to show instead of member own profile etc.
    * Forms have to be disabled for actual processing (e.g. events, email subscriptions etc.)

    Bottom line I think in this case it would be something different like 'member preview' rather than member view for admins who are actually members - and I would appreciate thoughts from everyone on this.

    John - what kind of membership information are you including into the invoice template? Have you considered sending that information in one of the membership emails instead?

    Hi Donna,

    Can you tell us what kind of information would you ideally like to put on the membership invoice?

    Dmitry Buterin commented  · 

    Max, have you considered using the Payment instructions in events to specify that payment is only taken only - and a different one for other invoices?

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Dmitry Buterin commented  · 

    I would appreciate more details - what kind of differences would you like to have between those invoices and why?

    Alex, Can you elaborate further - why do you want to categorize donations in this way, how this might be used?

    Thank for your posting. I would appreciate if you could elaborate - why do you consider these features necessary/how they would be typically used.

    About your second note - can you please create a separate thread for this? We focus each thread on one enhancement so that it can be properly discussed/prioritized.

    Appreciate the details, I understand your perspective now.

    To be frank, since this applies to relatively narrow scenario (many events per day - not too common among our users; printing the calendar - also not very common vs. looking it up online), it's not something I envision us looking at for at least the next 12 months. However, the event calendar itself has not been updated in a while so there is a good chance that we will end up redesigning that - and when we do, I will make a note to consider the printing aspect.

    For the time being I hope you will manage with the workarounds/procedures you have described.

    Interesting idea. A bit similar to saved searches we already have but I guess integrated with filters UI.

    I would appreciate comments from other users.

    It's not that we don't get it - it makes total sense. The question is only of priority - this request has to be considered with ~2000 other requests we are currently tracking. As of now, our main focus is new CMS in version 5.0, later in the year we have a number of enhancements for other modules, including forums. So we will do this - but it will have to wait its turn against more common requests.

    Have you considered using membership application for this? You can create a special free level and have it on a separate page, with its own set of fields.
