On behalf of one of our customers:
Currently, there is no way when sending an email blast to specify some recipients as CC (Carbon copy). Without this, every recipient of the email can consider the email as some action to follow up, not as FYI. Adding CC (or BCC) can help to deal with this.
What about email routing settings?
For event registation email in even details you can specify to make a copy to Administrator. "Administrator" in this case is taken from "Email routing" settings. There you can add your secretary email.
We also are currently (in upcoming 4.4 release) working on ability to specify event specific administrator so that all event emails can be routed specifically to him, no broadcasted to all admins.
Thanks Walt, this is exactly the workaround I wanted to share, but you were first. Thank you for watching by back!
Is it similar to batch updating records? See https://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825719-batch-update-of-contacts-or-members
Trenton, currently you can use export/import process a a workaround. Basically, you export all Lapsed contacts, then import this file and only use Email and Status fields from the source file.
Split into dedicated thread.
This is kind of different from original comment - but I like idea of tagging member for group actions. I think we need to consider this as a separate change.
We always appreciate people's input, but we have to prioritize and choose. No progress yet on his one
Thanks for comments.
You can restore them in Suspended Membership status - would it work? This basically keeps them as contacts and they do not count into membership numbers.
Alexia, thanks for the feedback. Could you elaborate a little "embarrassing mess" thing? Particular details can help us to understand the problem better and ultimately improve it.
Walt, thank you and I agree. Though this is not something we're going to do soon
Could you please clarify why do you need such a function? Why do you need to deleted invoices at all?
On behalf of a customer:
I have been asked to be able to check-off each attendee and to print on small label printers their attendance name tag when they are checked in. It is counterproductive and expensive to print 450 nametags when there might only be 200 attendees for the event. We need the ability to print nametags, etc. onsie-twosie on demand at the event table.Evgeny Zaritovskiy supported this idea ·
Could you elaborate please?
Angus, I hear you but most probably we won't have it done in the nearest future - we're currently focusing on top voted suggestion (100+ votes)

Not sure I understand, can you please elaborate?
Sorry, we do not provide estimates. We tried for some time in the past, we realized that there are too many unknowns and we cannot predict our development to keep up with out promises, so we decided against estimates.
Sharon - thanks for sharing.
Our current development status, plans and releases schedule are described in our Roadmap - see http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8827717-roadmap-2015-plans-releases-expected-dates
No update yet. This is one of the next steps after 5.0 release, as we've built required framework to create new gadgets, like that and others.
No update is expected for this particular thread in at least first half of this year.
Events only (like titles, description, locations) or all registrations from all events?
As far as I understand, you are more interested in weekly summary email abilities, rather than export, right?
No progress so far and we are not planning anything here in this year, sorry to share this.
Linda, this is not dead, we just have not been able to get to it yet.
I have no suggestions so far, sorry.
Can you please elaborate a little more? For example, we have another suggestion - http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825554-members-to-be-able-to-submit-events - isn't this the same one?
For this year we decided to use "10 authors" rule. Our 2014 roadmap currently consists of 83 wishlist threads with 10 or more different authors commented in them.
Can you please check http://forums.wildapricot.com/forums/308932-wishlist/suggestions/8825953-volunteer-management-functionality thread? Is it what you speaking about?
Thanks for the comments, I appreciate it. We do monitor everything in Wishlist, and I also agree that this is important request. We're just focusing now on even more important things, requested more by customers. So, no progress yet.
Thanks for the input. It's going to take us some time until we have progress in this area (I would say not within a year), but in the meantime have you tried to look into http://www.wufoo.com/features ? This can be a suitable workaround.
No ideas, sorry. But we are aware of its importance.
Is it not enough to use payment instructions functionality? https://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Payments+-+Overview?from=SJHGB#Payments-Overview-PaymentInstructionsAddingpaymentinstructions
No we do not have exactly as you ask.
But as a workaround, you can create a group and add your committee members into the group. Then you can create a saved search based on the group you created (it will show all the members of the committee) and use it when composing emails - just choose this saved search in recipients.
Would it work for you?
No, this is still in the wishlist. As of now, we're not looking into it.
Thanks for the details. Yes, I saw another one, but there is nothing I can comment on now. Both will be waiting here for their turn.
Thanks for the details. What did you do before Wild Apricot? Did you manually send the parent's part of the fee to them once a month or something? Or why manually sending once a year/quarter/month would not work?
Could you elaborate please what you mean?
Yes, I was about to say so.
I'm looking into the description of this idea and I see the list of attributes of <iframe> element. So, a person can just add "Custom HTML" gadget, click "Edit code" and just add all the code there. It is not that different from what is already described here.
What I'm against is created pseudo-iframe gadget where all these properties are listed. Until I miss something...
Walt, I totally understand you and agree, but my point was different - we're not big fans of investing actual analysis, design, development, QA and deployment time into creating workarounds. We really want to understand the root cause of a problem and solve it. From time to time we may produce some workarounds, just as first step to understand an issue better. but in general we try to avoid it.
May be, I'm not a big fan of describing workarounds.
I thinks that who knows these attributes can simply use HTML. Do not really see this as a priority in the nearest future
What about using Google documents or simply creating a web page (with limited access) where the board can share their ideas? Then, the event description page can just have a link to the page or Google doc.
Interesting. Do you mean that you customer not event description, but rather event system page? And you'd like to have several of the like template so when you create an even, you can associate the event with particular template?
