I haven't been following the test version of the topics page and I'm not sure what you mean by this, but I think that a new "mark unread" feature should result in nothing different than the current indicator for "unread," namely, making the message appear blue in the list. There should probably also be a "mark read" function that does the opposite.

Mark; could Follow - up be added to the functions currently on offer on the "-test" version of the Topics page? It might need something more positive than simply "reverting to blue" as a warning flag, though.

That would provide the facility that J asks for and might well have wider applications.

Chris.

p.s. As a hack, I have been resorting to marking them unread in my email. But this can be a PITA, because then, after dealing with the message on the site, I have to go back to email AGAIN and mark them "read." I'd rather to be able to deal with their read/unread status on the site.

moderated "mark as unread" function #suggestion

 

Sometimes I read a message in my group but don't have time to respond to it, but OTOH I don't want to forget that it's still on my todo list. It would be convenient to be able to mark messages as "unread" (i.e., make them turn back to blue).

Bob,

That was the problem.  Removed them with the text editor and am good to go.

Thank you.

Hi Mark
I will do this but just to put this into context, it was an issue 5 of us had when trying to have a chat - all using different browsers and on different types of devices. And when I initially posted the issue in the Group Managers Froim, another user replied that his group were having the same issue. That rather suggests it is not an issue specific to one user configuration.
Thanks

I think  you'll find that Excel is storing the quotation marks around text fields because that is the standard.

Open the file using Notepad on windows machine and you will  see the quotations are in the stored file.

The alternative is that the program that generated the file might have done it.

You usually can control this behavior by doing a File/SaveAs and setting the individual options.

Beta apparently is set to mask email addresses, so what shows up in my post quoting the pending notification is not actually what I see in the notification . The notification doesn't figleaf - it shows the entire email address, which I'll rewrite here as

xyz [at] gmail.com

This is what the pending notification looks like:

A message was sent to the group https://groups.io/g/Feline_Smallcell_Lymphoma from xyz@... that needs to be approved (bla bla bla).
There is no indication of who the member is, or her actually subscribed email address. After the message is approved, it comes through showing her subscribed email address, not the xyz address. So the problem manifests in the pending notification, not the email that comes through. Still, I don't understand how she can be doing this with xyz not being an alias. (If xyz is an alias and I simply am not seeing it in her member page, there is STILL the problem that the pending notice doesn't tell me who she is, or link in any way to her subscribed address.)

moderated Direct Add puts a quote mark as first charter in name field from a file

Tom Vail
 

I'm trying to do a direct add into a group from a CSV file and the results from my test file have a double quote as the first character in the name field?

The CSV file looks like this:



And the results look like this:



And on top of that, none of the appended email delivery options were noted.

Am I doing something wrong, or did I find a bug?  

Peace,

J,

Oh, you mean the display name of the email address, not her groups.io display name. But that's not it, either. It's showing "xyz@....

Correct, I was thinking that the From field might say something like:
From: "xyz@..." <subscription-address@...>
However...

 I asked the member in question about it this morning and she said "oh, I sometimes post from my other email address, sorry." But I don't know how she can do that without having an alias.

That does sound like an Alias, except that I thought when I tested it that the alias in a Groups.io account put the subscription address in the outbound From field, so you wouldn't see this confusion.

Possibly the alias is staring me in the face on her member page but I'm still not seeing any. I've emailed the details to Mark at support.

I'm interested in what you find out.

Your email interface may be showing you just the Display Name part of the From address. See if there's a way to have it show you the rest of the address. I have that problem looking at some member's messages in Gmail's web interface, I have to click the little "Show details" icon to see the full From address.

Mark, I'm not sure any more what I'm asking about. I have a group member who consistently posts using a different email address from what she's subscribed under, and the email address she posts from is neither listed as an alias of hers nor is subscribed as a separate member. How is this possible? I assumed she was posting under an alias and I just couldn't see or find it on her page. I will email you the details to support, unless someone here can explain this. Thanks.
