moderated Re: Hashtag and Topic reply to overrides

 

Oops, no it’s not. Notification was delayed, but it’s the same problem as I had originally with this: an attempted reply via email bounced, with message that replies had to be only to sender. This was the original problem I had with this in my group, and which caused me to give up on using reply-to-sender hashtags. I can send you the details offlist after I run another test.

Thanks, Gerald. I see that one can sort on the columns using these also. My particular database has about 50 blank spaces after the ID #, which pushes all the input data way off to the right.

Dan,

The ID is a row counter. You can change the sort order on this column. Click on the blue ID button below the rows to hide the column. The button will turn gray and the column disappears.

The checkboxes are for selecting rows. So far, I think it is only used to delete multiples rows at one time.

Just an inquiry and a suggestion. Why do viewers need to see the ID# and check boxes associated with them at all?

I realize Mark is going to be very busy on much more important developments for a while, but I for one would like to see these disappear. Or at least allow those with editing permission to change the width of that particular field.

Example: https://groups.io/g/DaltonLathes/table?id=10276

The whole ID column eats up a lot on space.

Thanks,

Dan Linscheid


moderated My focus for the next few months

 

Hi All,

I think I mentioned this a bit in passing, but I wanted to update you on what I'll be focusing on for the next few months. Basically, there are two projects that I've started focusing on. The first is the ability for group owners to charge subscriptions for their groups. I posted a first pass at a help document a week or so ago that outlined some of the features, and I'll be posting a revised version of that next week. The tricky part of this project is figuring out the various interactions and screens needed, and to make it all easy to understand. I hope to have it launched before the end of the year.

The other project I've started working on is more straightforward but a lot more work, an iOS/Android app. While the website does work on mobile, it's not the best experience, and it cannot do notifications, which several groups have asked for (especially for chat). Plus, it's the 21st century, we need an app! There are several other projects that will also eventually roll into this, including the notifications overhaul, and unread message tracking.

Expect the weekly #changelog to be a bit sparse at times while I work through this. Of course I'll always be fixing bugs as well.

Thanks,
Mark

ps delayed reaction - Mark, is this override of group 
settlngs by hashtags new? Because this did not use to work. I distinctly remember because I had to give up on this situation after trying it before. Anyway, I will test it again today. Thanks.

I'm finally getting to looking at this. I have not yet tested it, but my biggest and most immediate question is whether the hashtag would override the group setting that disables other reply options.

My guess is this is not possible. Right?
 
Hashtags will override group settings, so you should be able to do this.

Thanks,

moderated Sticky Wiki available for other sections

Beth Weld
 

I have been using the sticky wiki to provide help for our members in various subgroups, and it would be great if I could put sticky wiki pages on sections other than messages.  Even if there is only one sticky wiki (and yes, if I'm greedy, it would be nice to have one available per section), at least our members could use the information to get help no matter where they are.  These would explain things like in the photo album section you can click over on the right hand side to change the sort order and make the albums more user friendly. People may not see or understand that feature, and it is great for albums that are updated monthly by date.
Thanks
Beth

good idea. I'll do the wiki.

Why not set up your WIKI as Public and put a page with all of the public sub-groups' info listed there?
Public WIKIs are accesable to the world.

moderated help email displays public sub-groups? #suggestion

 

I'd like the ability for users to get a list of public sub-groups by sending an email to a new automated email address or the existing group+help email. I use the group+help email a lot but I am constantly having to tell people what sub-groups I have and how to subscribe to them by email.

I don't care what you call it, the "Calendar entry made by" name is irrelevant and confusing in our application.  I fully understand that on the surface it seems like a good idea and in many cases it would work well, just not ours.

Peace,

While the idea of including the "By" on the calendar is likely a good idea for some, maybe most, it is a very bad idea in our application. We have a single person doing most of the calendar entries, but they are not the one responsible for the event. Linking to their name will only cause confusion among the troops!
“By:” is the person who entered the Event in the Calendar

“Organizer:” is where you put contact information to find out more about the Event

moderated Re: Calendar start day option?

Bob Bellizzi
 

You can call it a bananna and be just as wrong because sorry, groups.io is not a newsgroup according to the definition of a news group, which is a server linked to many other servers, continually comparing their content to other newsgroup servers and updating their info and passing on new info they have to the other servers.  You can see much more at 
https://computer.howstuffworks.com/internet/social-networking/information/newsgroup3.htm

groups.io is a platform for listservs that may morph into online listservs.  Each of our groups is unique and standalone but they all are capable of sending and receiving email besides the ability to add messages to them and read those messages  online.

But you can keep calling it a bananna.

As far I'm concerned it's a newsgroup.  Yahoo called their's a newsgroup and that's good enough for me! ;-)
