    Barry - can you give us an example of how you would use a gadget in an email? Does this apply to Events gadgets only?

    You are right, at the moment field type can not be changed. I will make a note for our list of enhancements.

    What you can do is create a new field, enter the values manually (which is a pain...), export the list, copy the whole column from old field to new and import back.

    Do you use membership levels for your programs?

    Hi Gordon,

    Thanks for posting these details. Unfortunately we have not been able to look into this area - so we are still collecting feedback to figure out the key issues and design changes/enhancements.

    Comment form another user:

    " ...The system is a poor match for our Family Memberships. The database lists the family members separately and does not connect them for mailings and e-mails. Many of our Family Members use shared e-mail addresses. Have to set up 1 member with a false e-mail. I would list them both in the same entry except some want each to get an e-mail. I would prefer a username that did not require an e-mail, with a space in the database for at least 2 e-mail addresses so I could enter the family membership as one entry...."

    Ian,

    I appreciate your detailed comment.

    First, there is a workaround (more like a hack) that might work (works with most email providers). use idmcdonald+connor@xtra.co.nz for Connor etc. Our system will consider this to be a unique email but your email provider will ignore stuff after plus sign and deliver to your mailbox.

    Now, we definitely still need to address the situation you have described - in a proper way. Simply removing the requirement for email will not cut it since there would be no way to send invoices etc. I will split your post to a separate thread so that we can get more feedback, thoroughly analyze and properly address the key issue - handling family memberships.

    Your point is well taken.

    What we are currently thinking of doing is

    1) making the picture field thumbnail size customizable and

    2) providing the ability to view the full picture behind the thumbnail.

    Would appreciate comments.

    I will rename the thread to talk about gadgets (in our current lingo: WA widget: what you use to place WA functionality on external sites, WA gadget - little blocks of content/functionality used on WA site itself)

    @dseger - thanks, that's a good summary and this is the exact direction we are working in. Will probably ignore the approval thing for starters.

    It's not a question of priority, it's a matter of this feature requiring a big redesign of some internal processes in our system - which might not be obvious at the first glance.

    We are working on a design and best case it will be addressed in 4.3, which I would guesstimate for release in September-October. Even then, 4.3 would not provide the full ideal solution to what is being requested but just a first good step to improve this process.

    We are working toward this but several other pieces has to be put in place first to allow this.

    We are currently thinking about implementing a shopping cart - which would allow people to buy several different things in one go. They would still have to go through individual form wizards - I do not think this can be avoided simply because wizard workflows are different for each form.

    Would this address your need to a significant degree?

    You are right that 2) is much more complex. So I think we will consider 1) first.

    Sorry, it would be later than that - our main focus for the next ~6 months is to finish the CMS redesign in version 5 so we are putting everything else aside.

    So you mean the system would analyze the content of the post and try to auto-tag it based on the words it contains? I am not aware of any technology which can do this reliably at the moment, have you come across any good implementations?

    Can you elaborate about auto links of tagged words? I am not sure I understand what you mean.

    Unfortunately we have to postpone this feature - too much other stuff on our 2010 roadmap - so I am moving this back to wishlist.

    Some insightful details from one of our clients:

    Right now, we have a 60 day grace-period for our members, during which they can maintain their membership if they pay their dues along with the added $25 late fee. Currently, the day after they are due, I go in to the accounts of each member who hasn’t paid and click the “Extra Charges Multiple Choice” field that adds the late fee to their renewal invoice once they begin the renewal wizard (big pain, but I suppose I could do an export/change/import if there were too many). After that grace-period, I have to manually “Suspend” the memberships of everyone who hasn’t paid (also a big pain). Ideally, I could tell WA to add the late fee on December 2nd of each year and also tell it to suspend their memberships if they haven’t paid with 60 days of that date. We have found that we don’t really like the auto-creation of renewal invoices to everyone (we tried it this year) because their invoices might change depending on what optional features they choose to add during the renewal wizard. So, it might not be as easy as adding an additional invoice to their records. But if that’s the way you choose to go, we would be OK with that. It would still be an improvement over the way we currently have to do it.

    Eric - sorry, no news for now. This is still in our plans but a few more pieces of the puzzle have to fall in place to allow us handle this.

    I would appreciate comments from others - especially examples of when different registration forms can be needed for each registration type.

    An alternative to this is for us to implement 'conditional fields', where fields are shown/hidden based on other field choices.

    The donation widget only takes amounts from donations - can't include event registrations.

    And the confirmation page is the same for the event page (in fact, that's why this is a challenge - there is no 'donation confirmation page', there is a generic payment / confirmation process that applies to all transactions - events, donations, memberships. So its very tricky to customize it, especially for a particular type of transaction)

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Dmitry Buterin commented  · 

    Amy, we are not able to undertake this - we don't provide any services directly as our goal is to apply all our resources to the ongoing product development for everyone. So for us to do this kind of customization will mean delaying doing something else for everyone.

    You can try contacting our partners - see http://www.wildapricot.com/partners/ - try Nicasio and DotCreativity. They might be able to come up with some kind of Javascript workaround.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Dmitry Buterin commented  · 

    Amy, thanks for the details. Unfortunately I can't think of a way to customize the confirmation page now. We would need to think this over and then depending on the demand indicated on this thread prioritize against all other requests. Realistically, I don't see this happening this year.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Dmitry Buterin commented  · 

    This is still on the wishlist - it has not received much support yet. We would appreciate more detailed examples - how exactly people want to customize this page/why etc.

    An error occurred while saving the comment
    Dmitry Buterin commented  · 

    Understood, thanks for posting.

    I will rename the thread to focus on page customization.

    Quick question - since we already have the customizable donation confirmation email - what if we use exactly the same template and display on the donation confirmation page? Or should page and email be somewhat different?

    Sounds like potentially useful idea - apparently we have to implement member-submitted events first ( http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825554-members-to-be-able-to-submit-events-3764 )

    On a second thought this might be addressed by another enhancement we do plan to implement in the future:

    currently all guests have to use the same registration type. It has been requested that we allow different registration types for each guest.

    See http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8826058-allow-to-select-registration-type-for-guests-7910

    So if we do this I think then you can create a special registration type requiring secret code (existing capability in WA), you can handle what you have described above.

    I will withhold my judgement waiting for additional comments from other clients but so far this looks like a pretty unique setup so I do not think we would be able to consider adding this to Wild Apricot...

    Louis,

    I understand what you need and this makes sense but realistically I know we will not be able to consider this at least for 12 months - too much other stuff already in the pipeline.

    One workaround I can suggest is to use an extra cost field on the membership application and adjust the renewal date manually after the fact.

    What you can currently do is to create a custom admin-only field like "Promotion" - then mark all appropriate contacts via that field and using advanced search/saved search.

    I suspect the underlying point is that the interface for including (member) records into a group is better/faster to mark a set of records than the approach above, am I correct?
