Additional features to consider:
  • Drop down box to select page size (25,50,100 - for example)
  • First/Last page buttons
  • text box to enter page# to go to
  • Sort/Filter on column

J,
Yes, it goes "to" the person that requested the subscription but there's no way to embed the requesting email in the body of the message.  I can see that a feature like this would be of value to personalize the body of the message.  Many mailing services (mailchimp comes to mind) support that feature.  Admittedly, the only piece of data available for insertion is the email address so it's of limited value.  (Might be useful if the requester receives email from multiple addresses in their inbox.)
It's a "nice to have" in my opinion.

Hi,

I would also like to add my voice to those wishing to have the dates shown in something other than standard American. With Groups io becoming more international by the day, the international format would seem a good idea if a single format is easiest to code. I’m not too bothered about having it everywhere but I would like the date format in the database so my date column recognises the numbers I enter there as a date and so can be searchable.

moderated Left-hand Menu Request

Sue
 

Hi,

 

Getting several wishes off my chest this afternoon <g>

 

I know this ‘feature’ was requested by those whose moderation duties keep them far more busy than mine but having the Admin menu open all the time is becoming very annoying because I more often than not, want to get to the files or the database and have to close up the Admin menu first. It’s such a small thing really but sometimes I blink and wonder where the other features are because they’ve dropped off the visible page and I can’t immediately see them. Is there any way this could be optional or have some kind of memory associated with it?

moderated Database request

Sue
 

Hi,

 

I’m in the process of working through over 900 rows in my database to add a title to the link. I think this must be a new feature I’d overlooked. Anyway, I’m anal enough to undertake the exercise <g>

Currently I can see the first 9 pages but to get beyond that I have to click the forward button so I can then see pages 5-13 and then click the forward button again to view the next few pages. What would help enormously would be if one could ‘jump’ maybe 10 pages ahead each time and also a ‘last page’ button.

moderated Re: Can Member Notices be personalised

 

I don't understand this request. Like all member notices, the Pending Subscription notice goes TO the person requesting the subscription.

The invitation already does include the name of the person sending the invitation. Which other member notices are you suggesting adding this information to?

The issue is that it uses an invalid security certificate.

moderated Can Member Notices be personalised

Tony Moody
 

Hallo beta,

I would like to personalise some of my group Member Notices.

For instance, in a Pending Subscription Notice I would like to include something like

" A request for membership has been received from <names> <em@ail.co> . "

How to add coding for some of the fields to Member Notices?
What fields and variables are available?

OK,
Tony Moody

If you have the pictures off group, there are various programs that will do a bulk resize - I use Faststone Image Resizer, can set it going with suitable settings, and have a cuppa while it does its stuff. You may want to change image format (to jpg/whatever) or (for jpgs) reduce the quality setting at the same time.

Patty, we selected in the new Groups.io the size that would import before the transfer.
The transfer did work for some Y! Members albums but not all.

These two items helped control the import photo sizes.  7GBs of photos is a lot to go through.

What Bob said, but there's a hashtag on them already: #cal-reminder

Tell your member to look at the message footer next time he/she receives
a reminder. There should be a link to Mute (or Unfollow) that hashtag.
The link will take him/her to the web site to confirm, then presto: no
more calendar reminders.

If the member is receiving digests he/she will have to go to the web
site to Mute the hashtag. See the section on Managing muted and followed

moderated Re: could invitation text be moved

 

Victoria,

I have no idea how big a job it would be to just inactivate this fixed
invite text so each owner can write his own?
I'm sure the programming effort is not the issue.

No doubt Mark is concerned with the potential for abuse, since by design Invitations can be sent to addresses that are not already a part of your group. If the entire message content were written by the group owner/mod then the invitation feature would be a very attractive tool for spammers and scammers of all sorts.

So the boilerplate is there to make the Invitations less attractive to spammers, and to give the recipient a clear understanding of what the message is about.

Obviously, it doesn't serve the latter function for those who don't speak English. But the solution to that I'm sure is more likely to come with some overall effort to provide language-specific site text.

I just changed the maintenance page so that hopefully it won't be cached in the future.

I'm stll getting the anti-phishing warning/block from Norton. But only on my Windows 10 machine. On Android and Windows Vista machines, no problem. I've white-listed groups.io in my Norton application, cleared the cache (twice), and still no go. Any other recommendations? Or just wait until Norton straightens out their information? Or is this belong in the GroupManagersForum?
