moderated include direct-adds in member activity log #suggestion

 

I'm noticing today that direct adds are not included in the member activity log. This seems strange, since joining the group, removed from group, etc., are all included.

Mark,

NEW: Group default subscription preferences for date and time display.

The new Date and Time Display controls need the text Only set for new users that is found on Timezone. Unless they work differently (I hope not).

moderated change title of "spam left" notification email

 

The "spam left" notification email has title "subscriber has left xyz group." You don't get to the spam part until halfway through the body of the email itself. Could the message title be changed to "subscriber was removed for marking a message as spam"?

Thanks.

The Edit File dialog now has a button to bring up the file chooser and pick a file to replace the existing file.

Thanks,

Strike that. It looks like we *can* go into each member's advanced preferences and see what's going on.

moderated Moderator ability to see who's using advanced message preferences #suggestion

 

Currently, moderators can see a member's email delivery method, but have no idea whether they're subscribed to receive all messages or are only following a select few. It would probably be overkill to know exactly which topics members are following, but it *would* be helpful to know whether they are using the advanced preferences. Otherwise a moderator (i.e., me lol) might incorrectly assume that someone who is subscribed via individual email is receiving all messages.

Great idea. Avatars for groups would be much more useful to me than a background color. I'm hopelessly color blind. (If you want a laugh, watch me try to terminate a cat5 cable with an rj45 plug.)

( WE NEED TO GET MORE PEOPLE REQUESTING THIS SO IT CAN HAPPEN !!)
Is there any way that an alternative background color can be set for each group? 

As an owner of several groups, some with similar names but different functions, 
I have found it too easy to click to another group and post information in error.
(As a result I am having to shift about 385 people to the correct group)
This could be solved with an alternative background color, border color, navigation menu color or
an unique Icon for that group next to the "Home" button.
ANYTHING to help distinguish what group we are working in.

Please advise

moderated Files suggestions

Michael Pavan
 

I realized some features were lacking while re-organizing our Files section and having to manually move or delete files one by one.


1) Add check box for each file (as in Admin: Members) to enable mass Move, Delete, or Report File

I presume "Report File" is to <groupname+Owner@groups.io> rather than to Groups.io , but is not stated...


2) Add default view control by: Name, Type, Uploaded By, Size, or Uploaded (date)
Currently Files view default is: Name (#s, A-Z)


3) Add Folder Delete option:
"Delete this folder and move everything in it to: <select destination> ?”


4) Add “invite Scroll” (and 50 or 100 per page) options
Currently it is “20 per page"

Another feature I suggested to Mark a while back is to incorporate an online office suite into the site.  This would allow users to collaboratively edit files without upload/download and "keeping it all straight" issues.  Before I came to groups.io, I used a site that had this and it was great.  Like having your own private to the group Google Drive.  Like OnlyOffice or some other open source online document editor package.  Lot of work to integrate with security model though I imagine.

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.

 - Mark, Cambridgeshire, UK

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.

In any case, we prefer to display a spelled out month (at least the first

overall. So all 'hovered' dates have the month text. And when we're in the

Thank you, Mark

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