        Our organization really needs this functionality and the design looks great! Plenty of time has passed for collecting comments. Please put this on the Roadmap for implementation.

        Alumni Group commented  · 

        Yes! This design is exactly what we need. Please put it on the Roadmap to happen soon!

        Alumni Group commented  · 

        The design looks great - just what we need!

        But, I'm disappointed not to see this on the roadmap for Dec. or Q1. Forums are pretty much lifeless without this feature. Please put it onto the roadmap as soon as possible. thanks!

        Alumni Group commented  · 

        Hooray! Esp. looking forward to:
        - Bulk subscribe existing contacts to forums

        When will this be rolled out?

          Even if the FROM email address has to remain the same, being able to edit the FROM name that appears on a given email would be a big improvement for marketing purposes.

          68 votes. Please start the design on this one!

          Alumni Group commented  · 

          Up to 46 votes on this feature! I'd really like to see this get onto the Roadmap soon - email is the primary way we communicate with our members and improvements can't come soon enough.

          Alumni Group commented  · 

          Thanks so much for combining these & starting the work on the "From" issue! Much appreciated.

          Alumni Group commented  · 

          This request can be combined with: "Allow admins to change the "From" email address", which is very similar.

          Yes, please, please!!! As soon as possible. This is #1 on our wish list - it's critical to our marketing strategy. Thank you!!

            Glad to see this at the design stage! (and hoping to see it on the Roadmap in early 2016 - this is critical to active Forum participation)

            The design currently posted is pretty limited in detail. I would second the comments from Walt & Kim re having admin ability to choose the reply default. I'd also like to emphasize the importance of being able to customize the From line, as mentioned in my earlier comment.

            Are these features included in the design?

            Alumni Group commented  · 

            The "From" line deserves some discussion. It would be great if the Admin who is setting up each forum could choose from the following, depending on circumstance:

            - Organization Name, or
            - Forum Name, or
            - Sender's name

            In the case of something like a job board, one might choose the sender to be "Group Job Board".

            In the case of a discussion forum, one might choose the sender to be the names of the individual people who are posting to the forum. (i.e., people receiving the posts immediately would see the name of a person in the From line; those receiving a digest would see something like Group Discussion Forum in the From line)

            Wild Apricot Team,

            We would like to be able to set up email lists for teams and sub-groups of members that are usable by non-administrators - e.g., TeamA@domain.org, TeamB@domain.org 1995cohort@ergies.org .

            Our only option right now is for these teams to create out-of-system email listservs (e.g., google groups) - which are then not updated when people update their information in Wild Apricot.

            thanks,

            Alumni Group

              Evgeny mentioned that this is "very easy to change" - so perhaps this item could be combined with one of the other forum-related changes that are farther along in the process - e.g.,

              - Managing email subscriptions to forum updates (for which this issue is relevant because people will unsubscribe if the default frequency doesn't match the nature of the forum)

              Alumni Group commented  · 

              Agreed - the Admin should be able to set the default frequency for each forum.

                      Wild Apricot team,

                      We love the ability for members to see who is attending our upcoming event, but we would like to change the fields that are shown in the list. By default, the list shows name & date of registration, with names listed in order of registration date.

                      We would instead like to show name and class year (one of our profile fields) and to have the list appear sorted by class year, or at least alphabetically. (Date of registration is irrelevant to our users.)

                      Thanks for adding this to the WishList,

                      Alumni Group

                        Wild Apricot Team,

                        I'd like to chime in with support for an Email Manager role. We are an alumni group, and we would like our class representatives from each class to be able to send messages to their class members. E.g., the representative for the class of 1997 needs to be able to send emails to all members of the Class of 1997. This person does not need any other access, and should not have behind-the-scenes access to any private information about an individual that is not visible to other members of the network.

                        Please consider adding an Email Manager role (this is more narrow than a Communication Manager role).

                        thanks!

                          Wild Apricot team,

                          I understand from your website that you perform daily back-ups, but that these back-ups are not available to clients. (https://help.wildapricot.com/display/DOC/Backing+up+your+data )
                          Is there a reason why it's not possible to offer site or data restoration for a one-time fee to those who find themselves in the situation of needing it? Please consider making such a service available.

                          thanks!
