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.
We are currently working on analysis of events registrations process http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8826511-redesign-of-event-registrations where multiple registrations to be allowed in a single transaction
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?
See your point, thank you. Though, I do not think we will get into this soon.
Could you elaborate? An example maybe? What is the problem you're trying to solve?
not sure what you're suggesting, can you please elaborate?
Felix, the link you gave goes to Wild Apricot blog post. Mistake?
This by (old) design, but I understand and agree with your point. But for now we're going to keep it the way it is, while we're focusing on other things - top voted suggestions.
You can have a membership level specifically for sponsors - and then have special event registration type (free) for members on this level. Why doesn't it work for you? Please, share your point of view on this, this will help us to understand better.
I removed the part about making a donation during event registrations as we have a separate suggestion about this. I have added your comments and votes for that idea.
This can be done with Advance search, but I assume that you need it to work in simple keyword search, correct?
I'm not sure what you mean by "duplicate" in this context, could you please elaborate?
Could you please describe your scenario - why do you need this? Is it about a family membership? The more details, the better. Thank you in advance!
Do you mean that in the directory you want to see 1 line - per family, not 2 - for each parent?
Bruce - what you're talking about is going to be mostly solved in another suggestion, http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825614-allow-secondary-alternate-emails-for-members
Current thread is more of a bigger problem which may require a number of different changes in the system to properly accommodate family memberships, like group renewals, event registrations, etc.
No, not really - decisions tree are not possible. We will consider this point when we will be working on family bundles.
For now the only thing you can use are bundles functionality, but they have their limits and will not be able to achieve all you described.
This is one of top priority issues in our plans, but it's also hard to analyze and develop. For now we have no progress, but all your comments will help us to create a proper solution after all.
Check out this thread - http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825614-allow-secondary-alternate-emails-for-members-3195 While more general family/child memberships issue can take a while to resolve, we've come up with faster and easier workaround for main scenario (emailing to key person).
I think that this request has to be handled as a part of bigger one about Family/child membership - http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825986-family-child-memberships-8131
do you mean that each bundle member in your case has a different membership?
Frankly, there is quite a low chance of introducing this plan. The difference between these 2 plans is $30, which is $360 a year and with 10% discount for annual payments its $324 a year. Not much.
Good idea, thanks for sharing. I would say that we here, at Wild Apricot, have to re-thing fields customization logic - e..g create v2. But this is not something we're going to do soon, this year we're focusing on several very specific top voted items.
What is the need behind this request?
Could you please share why you need this?
Bob, I created a separate idea for your last comment - see http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932/suggestions/18672796
Hi Christina, why would you need that? Currently, Wild Apricot sends an email notification to admin when a new member applies. Why is not this enough? What is it you want to do with a popup notification?

Please review results of our analysis and design:
Post your comments/ideas right here. Until we see major disapproval, this is what we will develop in one of future releases.
Walt, sometimes I feel like I have to transfer you some of my income - as you do part of my job here at the forum, by following and replying to a number of comments from our customers :)
No update so far. When we have one, we will update the status.
Brian - no update yet. I can share that we're not going to have it in H1 of 2016 as no development has started yet. But this is the top thing in email roadmap, for sure.
The mode details you can share on what you really want here, the better solution we can provide. So if there is anything you can add, please do.
Walt - thanks for the feedback, we will use it when we start development. I have shared your notes with developers.
It is not being developed yet and I cannot say when it will be. As soon as we start development, I will post an update
We're not putting it on back burner, just delayed a little. I think we will start working on it Q1 next year.
The design we created works simpler: email reply posts a comment (or event a new topic) into a forum and then each participant is notified according to their notification preferences on the forum.
No need to pay extra, all our system updates are free for paying customers.
Kim: not 2015, we have already scheduled all the releases to the end of the year.
Yes, it was (as it says on our Roadmap page, the schedule can change any time). We hit a snag during implementation of this item and had to reschedule our resources. It is still very important item, we will get back to it as soon as we can.
This will not be in scope of suggested change. Most probably, I will archive this thread as soon as we release what we planned and we will be reconsidering new suggestions after that.
The closest thing to what you're asking is this one - http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825587-ability-to-submit-forum-posts-by-email-to-use-fo
We've already designed it and posted our suggested solution in the thread comments.
Analysis is in progress now - this is in our Roadmap http://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Product+roadmap
By the way, currently, when you compose email, you can choose specific group as recipient - and system will send email to all group members. Can this help?
Thanks for your input, Alan. We have related thread about listsevr - http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825587-ability-to-submit-forum-posts-by-email-to-use-fo - we will include your scenario in the design. No timeline though, sorry.
This is still in our queue and unlikely to be done in 2011.
We'd rather fix issues with our editor - though, not easy
