This was brought up about 3 years ago, https://beta.groups.io/g/main/message/1545  It was on the TODO list at one time, but I don't see it now.

I made this same suggestion awhile back. It might already be on the Todo list. I'm not sure.

moderated Updating existing file in Files #suggestion

YT9TP - Pedja
 

When I need to replace already uploaded file in FIles, I have to delete existing file first and then upload new with the same file name.

In the process, I also have to copy and save file description as I want to preserve it and then set it again on new file version upload.

I could not find better way to do it.

There is option to edit existing file but it allows editing file name and description only.

It would be good to have an option to simply replace already uploaded file with new one without loosing any other data about file.


moderated Controls for Creating Photo Albums #suggestion

Ginny T.
 

I've tried to search out if this has already been discussed/requested but haven't  come up with anything - it would be very, VERY helpful to have separate controls over albums and photos, to allow members to upload photos but NOT to create albums.

In the several groups I either own or manage, we try to manage photos both for general housekeeping as well as storage space. There isn't a way to prevent members from willy-nilly setting up their own albums as opposed to uploading their photos to an appropriate existing album. User instruction is provided that says "please don't do this" - but....

A management option (similar to how the databases can be controlled where a moderator creates the table, and then users can add lines), that would allow moderators to create albums and users to upload photos would be so helpful.

Maybe, please?
Thanks,
Ginny

Export Table suggestion 1

The name provided by Groups.io for that download is downloadtable.txt. It would save a little messing about in the file-save-as dialog box if the name were table-name.csv with table-name filled in with the name of the table.

Export Table suggestion 2

The exported data do not include the ID or Updated columns. It might be helpful to include those columns.

I agree with both these; and regarding suggestion 2 would go further, and so that the ID or Updated columns should be included by default - maybe with an option, to permit excluding them, if this can easily be done.

Thank you, Mark

As mentioned my preference is YYYY-MMM-DD but any format that defines the month in letters is OK with me.

Something I would like to see changed is the description of the two time options - I don't know how universal the current ones are - saying they are 12 or 24 hour. For some people 'Standard' is 24-hour!

I would prefer '12 hour clock (Common use, with am/pm, e.g. 3:04pm)' and '24 hour clock (Military, e.g. 15:04)', or something like those. 

Regarding dates, if it is easy enough, options to add variants (in all three orders!) with a text (three letter) version of the month (Jan, etc.) would I think be desirable. And having chosen a date format, that is the one I would like - always - to see (that's why I chose it), both on the basic web page, and on 'hovering' (everywhere - the  calender is not as Mark stated above, hovering on an event gives me my chosen (ISO) date format)

That was a couple of weeks ago when Mark went wild with improvements, https://beta.groups.io/g/main/message/17388.  It's easy to overlook something when that happens, but I really appreciate all of the work that goes into making this a great site.

Mark; a passing remark by Shal prompted me to have a look at the Photos section of the Group I moderate and there it was; the ability to move photos between albums! I haven't tried it yet (I had to do it the very hard way a few weeks ago) but I have no reason to suspect that it won't be anything less than waqht is required.

I can't find any mention of this additional feature in any change log, although my search wasn't all that intensive so I may just have missed it.

Many thanks for providing that; where is the #Thank_you hashtag when you need it...

moderated Re: Configurable date and time format options

 

Mark,

does the 24hour option also work in calender events? At the moment I can only choose the am/pm-version....when I create a new event.
Same goes for time of messages; I see am/pm.
And does the date option comprise group starts? I chose the DD.MM.YYYY option but it still shows the original MM/DD/YYYY.

It sounds like you're looking for a forum type system, strictly (or
mostly) web based. We're probably not the right solution for you.
You may well be right, a forum but one you can post to via emails. An
option to send emails in the form of the digest option (which does
not have user email addresses) would be marvellous.
Chris, the digest does have email addresses, as you can see (I take the
digest). You can still send emails to a list from whihc you take the
digest, I'm doing this now.

I agree with Mark, I think an email reflector is not what you want, as
they all work in pretty much the same way. (Yahoo did provide the
facility to relay messages without the sender's address, but such
"anonymous" senders could not post by email.)

Alternatively, people who do not wish to publicise their usual email
address can simply create a new one for group messages - this is by no
means uncommon.

Your image isn't of a digest, it's just of a page on the website.

a way to change the subscription status to "No email" for all groups they are subscribed to with one action.

It's not very many clicks to do the following (and works whether you subscribe to one group or 50).

  1. Go to the Groups.io home page, and log in if necessary. The page appears as a list of groups headed "Your Groups."
  2. Click the check box next to the heading Groups. Every group in your list gets a check marker to show it's selected.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Actions button. A menu of settings, including No Email, appears. Click the one you want.

This doesn't cover the other part of the request, to make it a timed holiday stop and remember your previous settings.

That's because in https://beta.groups.io/js/displaytime-0.2.2.js at line forty-something,

absoluteTimeTitle = momentDay.format("MMM D, YYYY " + timeFormat);

Should perhaps be

absoluteTimeTitle = momentDay.format(dateFormat + " " + timeFormat);

moderated Re: web-based questionnaire for restricted groups a pressing issue #suggestion

 

I just wanted to add my own +1 to this request. It would be helpful in our group to have more information about a potential member besides their email address, and a questionnaire (or even a text box) would go a long way to help us in moderating new users!

Thanks,

Nick

I realize this is an old thread. Is this suggestion still under consideration? I know some of our members would appreciate being able to set vacation holds. Going slightly beyond the suggestion here, it would be nice to also set a beginning date as well as an end date so the hold could be set it up in advance.
