moderated SUGGESTION: Moving files into a folder or from one folder to another

Donald Hellen
 

This is my suggestion:

Put checkboxes next to files in the main list and in any folder
listing of files. Allow us to check all the files (multiple files) we
want to move to the same target folder location. Then, make it so that
we can pick the target location and then have a confirmation box
telling us we are about to move X number of files (or folders) into Y
target folder. Confirmation would then transfer all those we selected
into the new location.

This should probably allow moving groups of folders, too.

The file transfer has been the messiest part of the transfer from YG!.
We can't even move files at this point as the tool doesn't seem to
work by clicking on the scissors icon then clicking the new folder
location. I posted a separate message for a bug on that.

Thanks!!!

Donald


moderated Moving files into folders bug

Donald Hellen
 

We have a bug moving a file to a folder. Here's how we can duplicate
the bug.

Find a file you want to move into a folder. Click on the scissors icon
to choose to move it. A list of all the folders appears. Click on the
target folder. The list goes away. Now search for that file again and
it never moved.

Has anyone found a different way to get this done? This is probably
the only serious issue we had after the group transfer. We have files
and folders from two Yahoo groups that we need to sort through and
find home folders for them.

moderated change the term "default" to "active" for automatic notices #suggestion

 

I have just created a "pending subscription"-type notice, to use as a second notice when a pending member has not responded to the first notice. But there is no way, short of changing the second notice to be the default (and then changing it back), to send only the one individual member the second notice by using the action "resent pending subscription notice" because it is an automatic notice and the default is always sent. 

I'm wondering in general about the term "default" for automatic notices. These are not just the "default." They are the ACTIVE notice. "Default" implies that you can switch, in the case of one individual situation, and choose to send a non-default messages. But you can't, because the notice is automatic. All you can do is change the chosen message to default, which makes it go out from then on in all cases, and then change the default back to the original. 

Since all of the notices are automatic (? not sure how you would classify "invite", but at least pending, rejected, good-bye, banned.), I think the term "active" is more accurate (and less confusing) than "default" for ALL notices.

A slight improvement might be, in certain cases where you choose an action for a member (e.g., resend pending member notice, remove, ban), to allow an actual choice of which notice to send out. In that case, the word "default" makes some sense. But this might overcomplicate things. Failing an actual choice, I'd ditch the term "default."

moderated Updates to Trello

beta@groups.io Integration <beta@...>
 

[Beta] New comment on card "Notices are not sent when an all-day calendar event happens." by Mark Fletcher:

This was actually never a bug, and the code does in fact handle it correctly.


[Beta] The card "Notices are not sent when an all-day calendar event happens." was archived.


[Beta] New card "Search by email address in activities is broken." was added to list "Bugs".


[Beta] The red label "Bug" was added to the card "Search by email address in activities is broken.".


[Beta] The description of card "Search by email address in activities is broken." was changed to:

Searching on an email address does not work. Searching on a name does work.

J,

The keyword being "usually." I remember the contortions that even you
(Shal) and Mark (offlist, through support) went through in trying to
make the threading happen correctly in several cases in my group.
I don't recall at the moment.

At some point prior to the message I cited Mark had added the "one-week" rule for messages without either form of citation field (In-Reply-To or References). I think that was to work-around various email clients, especially mobile clients, which fail to use or provide those either of those header fields.

Hi Mark, welcome back. And yes email traffic has been very slow so the reboot of the system was not really noticeable. In my personal opinion.

moderated Re: How on earth does Groups.io thread a topic?

 

Brian,

I ask this because I'm exasperated and I just can't figure out how
certain topic splits are occurring.
It depends on more than just the Subject. Here's the implementation:
https://groups.io/g/beta/message/5772

All participants are, to my knowledge, using e-mail to interact with
the group. The fact that titles of the topics are precisely the same
makes it utterly mystifying to me why they would ever not have all
been assigned to a single topic/thread, particularly when they all
come in on the same day.
The inference is that the later messages had a In-Reply-To (or References) header that cited a message other than one that matched the subject.

This can happen if members are in the habit of clicking Reply on an arbitrary message from the group, then replacing the Subject to match a thread in the group.

As a mod of the group (or a member receiving individual messages) one can use View Source to examine the Subject and any In-Reply-To or References fields in detail. This usually tells the tale.

        I can't see it even when I select your text.  I am guessing you delete it manually, but I've never had a time where my signature was included that the double hyphen followed by a space is not on the line immediately above it.
