      This depends on privacy settings of member fields - when name field is accessible, it shows the name.

      Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

      Can you elaborate what is important specifically? I mean, what do you ideally want to have. There are different ideas/problems being discussed here, I just want to make sure.

      Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

      Thanks for commenting - but do not expect any change here soon, sorry. I will continue monitoring this thread to adjust the importance of the request.

      Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

      Nothing, sorry.

      But the question is - why? You do not want to reveal real name but want to substitute it with some profile name (nickname?). What is profile name in this case? Can you give us some examples of such profile names?

      Unfortunately, this is not possible now.
      Any comments from other on this are welcome.

        Nope, we're focusing on top voted items now. You can check what we're busy with if you filter by status work in progress.

        This is a great suggestion! Thanks for posting it.

          Walt, this was not done on purpose. Just on of things to work on in future (but not this year).

          Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

          No plans yet, Liz. Not soon for sure.

          Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

          Well, easy or hard, we cannot do it right now - it has to go into our product roadmap in first.

          For now, I separated your comment into a dedicated thread and will keep it here. Wishlist is a place for us to collect new features and changes requests, we use it when we plan system updates.

          Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

          Would it solve your problem, if we add an option for common field setup to make a field "Read only", same as we have now for membership fields? Rating itself can be a simple text field in this case, edited by admin.

              Nice workaround, Gary! (though still a workaround and we need to get it solved someday)

              Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

              Charles, this topic is not about us, Wild Apricot, but about our customers and their members. So the second part of your comment makes total sense to me.

              Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

              It does force to pay full amount

              No, we're not working on it yet. See our Roadmap - http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Product+roadmap

              We hear you, but we've been putting all our efforts into version 5 (to be release soon). Now, we're slowly getting into other requests and the key focus for us is to close as many long outstanding posts as we can. This one is among them, but we haven't had any progress on analysis yet.

              Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

              Sorry to say that, but no. But we have not forgotten about this, just had no resources to get to this yet.

                "This is becoming a seriously big issue ... Please, please, please, move this up the list!"
                The most recent update is that this particular idea is a part of 2017 focus on Email Development team in Wild Apricot. As soon as they have some progress here, they will share it.
                I'm very sorry this this is a big issue and we haven't had any progress over it.

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                This is not intentional, priorities just change all the time. We now never promise any release date. When we start working on something, we change it to "Work in progress".

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                well, it's not a kickstarter :)
                this has a good number of votes and it is in out top list.
                No estimation though.

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                We will update the status to "Work in progress" when we start working on it. Nothing more I can add now, sorry.

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                It is not very hard, but it is not a couple of clicks either.
                Most probably, this is not something we will change soon as we're focusing right now on top voted ideas.

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                Sorry, we do not provide estimates.

                Also unfortunately with the system of that scale (9000+ accounts, 6M+ contacts) there is not easy/simple change, everything requires thorough testing and resources. Our product roadmap is here http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Product+roadmap

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                Oh, Susan, as soon as you commented or voted for a feature in the wishlist, you will be automatically notified about any change related to the topic.

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                I see... Well, as soon as we are close to development of this, we will get this into consideration. Thanks for sharing, Walt, this is exactly why we want to share our design thoughts in first place!

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                Hm, the idea about having alternative email is to not have 2 contacts in database, right? So, you have 1 contact (e.g. for a husband) and you put alternative email into his contact record (wife's). The only reason you do this is so WA can automatically notifies BOTH emails when something happens or when admin sends emails, etc. Otherwise, what is the point of keeping spouse's email at all in contact records?

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                Unfortunately, we are not able to fit it into our original schedule in Dec 2015, and it also won't fit into our Jan 2016 release. I do not have information after this date, so for now I cannot promise any release date. I will update everyone as soon as I have more information.

                Please, accept my and development team apologies for this.

                We're balancing a lot of things - see our Roadmap at http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Product+roadmap

                This issue is there (but we will start from 1 alternative email)

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                Thanks for sharing, but I have no suggestions for you to workaround that.

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                This is something we want to address as a part of another thread - http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825986-family-child-memberships-8131 - focused on family memberships. There we'll be analyzing all scenarios and finding best solutions.

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                What kind of information tied to primary contact are you talking about specifically? Could you give some examples of contacts with some example data (emails, etc.) that you're trying to keep? I cannot understand your contact's connection map you're trying to implement.

                But in general I can comment that current contact database model basically consider each contacts a separate record with its own set of data and when you use use search, it uses data specifically from this contact data. Bundles are the only exception and allows to group contacts and show all related contacts when looking into details of specific ones. Probably, some of your problems can be resolved using bundles, but I'm not sure - need to get examples of contact details as I asked in the beginning.

                Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                Our current inclination is to have something like a single "backup" email for each contact - not multiple emails. This makes email blast scenario simpler to implement - like admin can select if he wants to force a copy to "backup" email or use only primary email. Contact could also select if he wants always to receive a copy to his backup email or use it only in special cases (like forgot password, etc).

                We think that bundle scenarios (like families) should be considered in terms of bundles in general, not just emails. This means that we need to rethink and change whole bundle management and this is a different aspect of discussion - see

                    Thank you, Jim. We have this requests in our forum already, I've merged yours here.
                    So far, we're have no actual plans on doing something about this, but when we do, we will comment here and you will be notified.

                    Joined to existing thread - it belongs here, to custom database field validators.

                    Apricot KernelAdminApricot Kernel (Product Manager, Wild Apricot) commented  · 

                    I think that we need to have some kind of common validation patterns plus ability to use regular expressions. And admin (in fields management form) can choose if he want the field to be validated and choose a proper validation pattern or defined custom (regular expression). Then the system will just validate the field against the pattern.

                    In more ideal situation I can think of a special system page (or may just some theme override configuration file?) where admin can control validation patterns himself somehow (e.g. through regular expressions or even providing some js code) and then use them in fields customization. This approach would require advanced skills from administrator.

                    No update, sorry. I probably there will be no update here till the end of the year.

                          This is a very elaborated suggestion, thank you very much for your time. This is quite a big project - to properly and seamlessly integrate with Meetup - and of now it is not in our immediate pipeline.

                          We will continue collecting feedback to see how much this functionality can be of use for our customers. The more votes we receive, the more chances that we're going to look into it closer.

                              Could you please share more? I'm not sure I fully understand what it is you're asking for. May be, some examples?

                                Hi Supporters!

                                We’ve prepared design suggestion for this idea:
                                https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1XrhtUinBndBDRUO73SkUzjzJLJdRbYUq_19EtuFkKu8/edit#slide=id.p

                                Key changes:

                                1)Ability for members to review all their event registrations, filter them, and view details.
                                It will appear in the member’s profile in a new My registrations tab.

                                2) New Cancellation setting will be available in registration type settings with 3 options:
                                • Do not allow cancellation
                                • Allow sending cancellation request to event organizer
                                • Allow cancellation up to N days before start of event

                                3) New email “Event registration canceled” will be sent automatically if member cancels his event registration. It can be customized.

                                Our first step will not include ability for members to change event registration detais from profile. We will consider this problem separately and collect additional information.

                                Will be glad to hear your comments about suggested solution!

                                Rick, there is nothing valuable I can share right now except that I hear you and number of votes is still one of deciding factors.

                                maciu - good to hear about design. About the roadmap - not this year, it's been planned already. Next year is unclear yet.

                                You are right about knowing the answer - there is no way a member can change event registration after it's been submitted. There is no workaround at all for that.

                                This is a very good suggestion, thank you. I'd like also to hear comments from others about this.

                                  Why not using system field "Member since"? It adds the date of application automatically

                                    It's not like it is not available, it's just may be as convenient as you want it to be - but it depends on your conditions as well. You may, for example, setup a single registration type for a family of 2 - for $20 price - with $0 guests. Or you can setup an event registration type for $10 and with free guests (for children); or you can setup children as a checkbox in the registration - like "1-2 children - free".
                                    In other words, family registration is totally possible, its a matter of convenience; this one can be improved for sure.

                                    To clarify: there is no mystery about "~70" - these are the threads with 10 or more authors commenting in them (not comments, but different authors).

                                    Speaking about your requests: both are yes.

                                    "Late fees on renewals" - This in analysis queue, not ready for development yet.

                                    "Recipients of Announcement E-mails" - this is ready for development and one of the top candidates for after 5.0 release.

                                    Thanks for sharing the details, Kim. We haven't had any progress on that and, frankly speaking, we do not expect any in the nearest future. Let me expand a little on this comment, so it does not sound rude.Most important: this is not because we think that this is not important (quite opposite!), but to make the change we would have to spend considerable amount of time. And we are not willing to go into that - we are just going to release our version 5, which has been a very very long project for us (more than 3 years ) and we do not want to start right away another big one. Instead, we will be focusing on other top and long outstanding threads (we have ~70 of them) that require less efforts to do.

                                    But things change and as soon as we see that we are doing a good progress with closing less difficult issues, we will be switching to more difficult and important as this one.Thank you for your understanding.

                                    Thanks for comments. I agree that poor support of family and bundles functionality is a weak point of WA. Unfortunately, we are very busy with other changes (i.e. Content Management System) for now and there will be no updates here for the nearest time. Sorry again.

                                        My assumption is that you also supply all these information in "Event registration confirmed". So, if you send the reminder 2 days before and a person registers after this, it means basically 1-2 days before the even - what is the purpose for having a reminder email, while "Event registration confirmed" is the reminder on its own?

                                            Murray, why is integration with external mailing systems "a must"?

                                            Matt - thanks for sharing.

                                            I actually agree with you in general and we will get there. I still think that there for quite a lot of organization internal email system is good enough and easy to use, but for others integration with MailChimp and similar systems will work much better.

                                            On the very next release 4.3 we're adding ability to manage bounces. The next step we plan (as Dmitri mentioned earlier) is to have pre-built email template to select from when blasting newsletter.

                                            Talking about integration with constant contact (or other systems) - this is not something in our nearest plans and again as Dmitri mentioned we are more dedicated to evolving WA tools instead.

                                            Not soon, you're right :(

                                            I think that ideally we need to create our own API to get an access to WA data (i.e. member records, event attendees, etc.). Then based on that third-party companies can creates services to sync data between different services - like WA <-> mailchimp, WA <-> constant contact.
