moderated Re: Give group owners control over how subscriptions are processed #suggestion
I'm not exactly sure I entirely understand the question. If you're suggesting a feature whereby that owner could establish additional group-specific subscriber requirements (a web-based questionnaire, perhaps), that would be beyond what I was suggesting, and still may not address the issue at hand.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Along those lines I have found the "Pending Subscription" notice option to be very helpful. For a neighborhood group, I use it to ask a potential subscriber to provide their full name and local street address. When a person subscribes via email, they receive this message after they confirm their email address with GIO. I like that process because it keeps it simple -- one step at a time. However, the "subscribe via web" applicant sees a more complicated process, with the "please confirm" and "pending subscription" notices arriving at the same time, possibly creating confusion where it otherwise might be averted. (Please forgive if I am creeping into the realm of design intent, which I was hoping to avoid.)
Based on recent comments to the GMF group there appear to be some owner/moderators who would like the "subscription via web" process to work the same way as "subscription via email" does now. Personally, I'd prefer that a would-be subscriber be confirmed before they appear in my "pending" list. At that point I'm happy to help them through the requirements of my own particular group. Other owner/moderators may prefer the current design. Hence the suggestion to provide a choice.
