Mark et al -- As someone who has no need for multiple invite templates, the necessity of having to always select one at the time of sending an invitation is a little burdensome. All too often I forget to do it, and the invitation goes out with no custom text at all.
I think it would be nice to add back the "active" checkbox for Member Notices of type Invite (and Direct Add). If one of them is thus marked, it would auto-populate without having to be selected, but could still be overridden by selecting something else from the Notices pull-down menu.
Thanks for your consideration.
