Gerald, I hear you on this one. The problem is that our priorities and roadmap is already compiled and being worked on, we cannot really add something into next release.
On a positive side, our events development team is monitoring comments like this ones and if we believe that we have to change our current priorities, we will.
Liza, we understand the importance of this feature and I totally agree that it is very useful for word of mouth scenarios. Unfortunately, it is not in our nearest plans. We will update this post as soon as we start working in it.
I'm sorry to hear this, Scott - but it is what it is. Current system does work for someone, but I agree it is not the best and very inconvenient. We're listening and currently focusing on highly requested suggestions, but this one is still not in focus.
We do read, but this is not something we're working on right now. As soon as there is something new to share, we will post it here right away.
Can registration types with code help?
I can answer on behalf of her - no, unfortunately. It's almost impossible to guess actual timeline for any feature as it depends on too many other things. We used to try and almost always missed it do we decided not to do this anymore.
Not in 2013, sorry - but we are currently performing analysis and design.
Again, why not creating a single registration option (with reduced price) that requires code to use (this is possible to do in WA)? You can email the code to 500 people with instructions to use specific registration option and enter the code during registration.
Sorry, no plans yet. Why hidden registration types do not work for you? Or you want to suggest registration without actually showing any price until code is entered?
That makes sense, thank you for more details. What if instead of having 3 registration types for 1, 2 or 3 day rates you create it as "extra-cost" with 3 radiooptions? This would reduce total number of reg types to 4.
And I also think if we make a change in the system and allow to have "extra-cost" value to be negative, can it work as discount? In your case there could be additional "extra-cost" checkbox like "I'm student" which gives a certain amount of discount.
I would be glad to hear your comments.
I believe that this particular situation can be resolved by just creating a separate registration type on event with reduced price. No need in special discount coupons.
Scott, thanks for sharing and was nice meeting you at the PersoniFest!
Thanks for mentioning it here - we already have this comment in out internal database of ideas but not here.
Ho Donna, there have been no progress on this particular request and it's not in our radar so far and can make no promises on dates (as with any other feature).
Not working, that’s correct.
Jenni, I understand it sees unfair and your expectation were different. So were ours, but situation changed and we had to adjust our plans.
As of now, we do not have plans to work on this in 2018.
That's because there have been no progress so far.
Moved your reply to proper thread - it's more related here.
Not earlier than we release new CMS which is going to be a base for new modules.
Look nice, thanks for sharing!
Robin, let me answer as a Product Manager of Wild Apricot.
First of all,
thank you for being active contributor into Wishlist forum. I can see that you have supported over 100 ideas for several last years. I (and all of us in Wild Apricot) appreciate feedback form customers as this helps us in further product planning, analysis and design.
I understand your position. Everyone wants (including me) to have their ideas implanted as fast as possible, not after several years. I wish we can do this, but goes to the next point.
Wishlist forum has over 2000 open ideas in the Wishlist forum (and over 30K users) and this particular one has (only) 25 votes. Why I say "only"? We have about 200 other ideas with more votes than this particular one. We need to prioritize somehow. Number of votes is on of the key metrics in the prioritization - but not the only one, see next point.
Wishlist is a great source of customer feedback, but this is not the only source of our product prioritization. We have our own business plans (e.g. business growth), other feedback channels (e.g. Support), security requirements (e.g. PCI DSS, GDPR), infrastructure works (hosting, code deployments, performance), decreasing tech debt (refactoring of code) and so on. All these requires some kind of balance and resource planning. We are paying attention to Wishlist and user votes contribute a lot into prioritization, but not just it.
I looked into suggestions that you voted for over time and I can see that we have closed a number of them over time - which means we are working on it. For example:
- Prioritize Test Emails Ahead of "Final" Email Blasts
- Allow secondary/alternate emails for members
- Restricted access to documents and images (member only files)
- Registrant to view and change his event registrations
- RSVP - Simplified event registration
- Generating membership cards and certificates
Some more are in progress right now:
- Membership Trends Reporting
- Uploading documents and photos in forum and blog posts
- Mapping location of members
Altogether, last year we closed about 1500 of votes on the wishlist (mostly top voted requests). We're paying attention to the forum and making progress over it.
we do not share dates on purpose. Long time ago we were promising some releases dates but our expectations were always breaking. Situation changes all the time - people come and go, development can stuck at some unforeseen issues, a feature takes longer than expected and we see other opportunities. There is a lot of operational hidden activities that influence the end results that we decided not to promise at all.
My (our) position is simple: Wild Apricot is what it is now and it provides what it provides. We are committed to improve it over time, but this is a bonus, an extra thing. We won't be promising any dates and won't commit to anything. Instead, we openly share where we are and if we started working on something, we change status as "Work in progress" and it tells the world that at some point we may release it. "May" because situation can change and it can go back to backlog (postponed).
So, in short, this is not something we're going to have in 2018.
Robin, I do no want to seem rude and forgive me if I sound like one. As I said, I appreciate your active contribution and we do have progress over ideas that you voted for. But product prioritization is a sophisticated thing and we cannot give any promises.
Sorry, we have no alternative solutions and this is not in our immediate plans so far, not for this year for sure.
Where do you paste the table? Into a web page?
You can pay for 2 years with 15% discount starting form after April 3rd.
In the latest update 1.3.1 profile screen was made a default screen after login. We understand that it is not a complete solution for the problem, however we hope it will be helpful.
Making custom branding on App Store level is going to be a nightmare for Wild Apricot. It means that each app for each organization has to be published separately (uploaded, reviewed by App Store staff, enabled by WA). With our number of organization and number of employees, not worth of investments - until we charge some extra for it.
Branding inside the app, though, makes total sense for me and can be quite easily done.
Because we have other things to prioritize, with more votes on them.
Would having a backup without possibility to restore it be interesting? Because importing a backup backup is much harder to implement.
Did you try to contact our support? We could have helped you to restore your content.
Re timeline: we were focusing on something else.
Sorry to hear about your accident. No, nothing changed in version 5 and we're not working on backup feature right now. See this thread about our plans and current progress - http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8827717-roadmap-2015-plans-releases-expected-dates
In this long discussion topic we've discussing what specifically people need from backup feature. Is it just
a) having a way to somehow download all the information in order to keep some copy on our own servers, but without restoring ability
b) or is it also about restoring, so you're not just backing up, but can restore from it too.
The difference is very big from implementation point of view. Doing A is much faster and easier, but has no real purpose except keep data on our computers and being able to manually open files and copy/paste data.
Option B is much more time consuming for us to design and develop.
I'll keep this in mind - we will update our procedures against aliens invasion (last time we hardly managed)
Does it have any benefit, if there is only backup option (more like export - images, web content, etc.), but no import / restore back? The problem is that to have both is quite a substantial chunk of work and it's not clear yet when we're going to do something about this.
Dave, it seems I do not understand the problem . Can you please elaborate?
The Android app for members is of big interest (top in hot ideas on our Wishlist since the iOS app was released!) so probably you’d like to know a little more details on how a development is
going. Well, we decided to give you small updates on it. Here is the first one.
We started from the beginning and created a login screen. In addition, we’ve done a “choosing an association” functionality if your members can log into more than one. It’s quite empty inside right now, but we have a nice side navigation menu for future sections already.
Our next step will be a personal profile screen.
We’re going to start working on it soon.
No updates so far.
No immediate plans so far.
See http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8827717-roadmap-2015-plans-releases-expected-dates for our current up to date status.
Yes, we're aware of the API, thanks. We will definitely be looking this (when we can)
Lori, I missed that you were speaking initially about QB Online, that explains everything - it does not support IIF files importing. Thanks for sharing your comments.
Lori, what kind of integration you are expecting to have? What are your typical scenarios / tasks that you want to automate? More details here will help us in future with proper analysis of the possible solution.
Sorry, this forum is not about WA webinars
I'm really sorry, but I cannot understand what you're specifically asking for. Integration between Wild Apricot and external system?
I opened the post for commenting - may be some other developers will be willing to help and share the experience.
Sorry, I cannot help with instructions on now to setup streaming to members only.
Randall, thanks for your very elaborated thought on this matter. As of now, we have no plans to change our Web Content module that dramatically - this is going to be quite a big business enterprise. I'll share this with our CMS dev team so we keep thinking on how to improve and simplify our CMS, but I do not expect anything big to come our of this.
No, this is not in our plans, thanks for sharing your idea. Why do you think we should have it? Would be glad to get some details on the idea.
I'm sorry to hear that. Unfortunately, this not in our nearest plans as of now.
Can you please look into http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8827180-event-manager-for-specific-events-only-with-limite ? Is it a better way of doing it after all?
I agree. We just did very first step in this direction back in 4.4, but it was not enough even close. Current thread is to make a proper support of limited event managers.
The thread you mentioned we considered done when we released version 4.4 http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Release+4.4 and introduced Event organizer http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Event+emails?from=6QQaAw#Eventemails-Eventorganizer functionality with corresponding email routing ability.
You mean that even if they want, they should not be allowed to access any other event, except their own?
In other words, you want different people to be responsible for different events without ability to change other events, right?
We made some moves into this area - see http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308920-archive/suggestions/8831335-event-specific-administrators-10260 - but this was very first step.
What you are speaking about, is evolution of this into more organized and automated forkflow. We've had comments about that and we have this in our design queue, but there is no timeline for that.
Thanks for sharing your ideas!
I understand your stance on it, but it is not about shame rather a product management decision.
Hi, thanks for the feedback. I understand the importance of internationalization for your organization (and many others), but I'd like to be transparent on this: this is not in our priorities for now and I expect no progress in this year in 2018.
Just not in the priority list
Sorry, this is not in our plans for 5.1
In your situation I recommend keeping members in Active status then, but with past renewal date.
Removed the phone, no worries.
Just be careful next time when publishing something on public forum like our Wishlist.
Changed the title of the proposal in order to better reflect the idea.
We just didn’t have time to fix this :)
