Re: Missing +1 email command (Like) info from the User Manual #suggestion

 

I agree 100%, it's technically correct, but on the other hand, my experience has taught me that when dealing with users of all levels of knowledge (or common sense), it pays to be explicit/precise.

Cheers,
Christos

Hi Nina,

Awesome!  It works great!

I do have a (pedantic?) suggestion though, I'd personally enhance this:

... +1 or the word like as the text of your reply...

to

... +1 or the word like as the only or first line text of your reply...

The only reason I suggest that is to head-off anyone possibly inserting the +1/Like into any other position, which I don't know if it would work; I didn't test that but I suspect it probably won't*.  When I did my two like reply tests, I did not trim the quoted text (on purpose) but I did place the +1/Like at the top.  Someone may insert a +1/Like under a specific paragraph to indicate they like that part resulting in an unwanted message posted to the group, you never know.

* just as I was getting ready to click Send on this reply, it just occurred to me, I can use this reply to test if it works in any other position, hence these two lines:

+1
Like

Cheers,
Christos

Confirmed, it doesn't work if it's not the only text, or at the top of the reply if quoted/other text exists.

Well, I didn't know you could use the word 'like' instead of +1.  It's always good to learn something new.

Re: Missing +1 email command (Like) info from the User Manual #suggestion

 

Haha. OT, but yesterday a cat knocked over a full cup of tea onto my brand new (3-week-old) computer and it was hosed instantly. Needs nearly every part replaced. Luckily I have the extended warranty, which includes "accidental damage" (although a good prosecutor could make a case that the cat did not act accidentally;). So I'm only half up-and-running on the old computer, which thankfully I didn't just toss into the junk heap, and using my phone a lot more, on which email is just easier.:)

How do I get rid of "happening now" in the subject line of emails?  It takes up the whole line.  
Apparently it's a new feature of calendar event notices - see https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/topic/83195392#38314. GroupManagersForum is the GMF group that J_Catlady mentioned in her reply. That group is the place for questions about Groups.io functions and features. The docs group is intended for feedback about the documentation in the Groups.io Help Center (https://groups.io/helpcenter).

Hi there,
I don't really know what you're talking about, but if you want help, you could join the GMF group.

Maybe some things should be, like, little secrets. Maybe don't ever document it. That would be fun! 😊

Right, I wasn’t clear about that. He can speak for himself, of course. I understood him saying that the reference in the Enterprise manual was insufficient because most people don’t read it.

Re: Missing +1 email command (Like) info from the User Manual #suggestion

 

That’s why I asked. Christos’s message seemed to imply that the fact that the “disable” option is documented only for Enterprise groups is a mistake. But it’s not a mistake to document it only there if only Enterprise groups have the option.

Yes, there's no Enterprise Settings panel for the other types which is where the control is.
