This has been discussed at great length here in the past, but I don't remember whether Mark came to any conclusions on it. I'd love to have that ability as well.

moderated Allow Members to Be Able to Set Photos Sort Options #suggestion

Patty Sliney
 

I am again hoping that I can suggest that we add the ability for users to be able to set their Photos sort options, both albums and within albums.  Yahoo Groups has this feature, and all my my groups use it.  For my groups, which are sewing/embroidery/quilting based, we use the photos sections pretty heavily, to post up our projects.  So, discussion ensues on the list about the projects.  List members want to go see the newly posted photos, but trying to find the albums and the photos is very difficult.  Many of my list members are not particularly computer-savvy, and they just don't "see" the sort button, or really know how to use it. So, list mods are constantly having to explain how to re-sort the photo albums by "Sort By Created" down arrow, then sort the album photos by "Sort By Posted" down arrow.  If list members could either set their sort preferences, OR, if they set the sort once, it is "remembered" until they re-sort, that would be extremely helpful.  The default album "Sort by Title" is not helpful, as we use a monthly photo album system due to the number of our list members (way too many list members to allow individual photo albums), and the album default sort, "Sort By Name" is useless for us, since literally none of my list members re-name their photos.  Hoping to get this request bumped up the added features list?  I know others have also wished for this to be added in.

I am a member of another group https://www.phpbb.com which enables you to go to the newest post in a thread, instead of trawling through posts I've already seen. Is this feature available on groups?

Unless I'm misunderstanding something, our group uses a database for a similar function.  Can't you set one up to do what you want?

  • Also cancellations should appear in the activity log.
Sorry for forgetting that one.

moderated #calendar #suggestion #feature Improved functionality for Calendar Cancellations #suggestion

Kenny Paul
 

Relates to https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/message/13441

The current implementation of meeting cancellation is a obstacle to wide scale calendar adoption by communities that primarily rely upon url subscriptions to a GIO calendar.

At the core of the issue is generally when someone cancels a meeting the assumption is that everyone gets notified and the meeting goes away. Education can only go so far on this when dealing with hundreds of calendar subscribers across multiple sub groups.  The reliance on the RSVP function and the fact that the event remains posted are proving inadequate for the following reasons:

A) it assumes that the RSVP function is being used by everyone. Religiously. This is almost never  the case for a url subscribed calendar user.
B) For folks subscribed via url it still looks like the meeting is there, unchanged.
C) A color change for a meeting as the key indicator that it has been cxld isn't meaningful. (This is true even if looking at the cal in GIO since meeting colors can be changed easily). Also color changes do not propagate to a subscribed calendar.
D) If a user subscribes to the calendar via url after the the meeting was cxld they have no way of knowing it shouldn't be there in the first place.

Desired behavior:
  • The inclusion of a "cancel and delete meeting from calendar" option - << most import and time critical aspect of this enhancement request
  • If a meeting is canceled and an invitation email was sent from the calendar, with or without an RSVP request, a method to send a cancellation notification to the list as part of the cancellation process should be available to the user rather than relying on a separate user initiated message to the list.

Thanks for the consideration.

moderated Spreadsheet #suggestion

Daniel Kravitz
 

We currently use Google Excel sheets as a sign-up sheet, the problem is that not everyone has a Google account, and some people find it too complicated. My suggestion is to add a shared spreadsheet function so group members can sign up for certain events and making it visible to everyone in the group.

This is a "feature". If at the time of transfer from Yahoo a photo's originator is no longer a member of the Yahoo group then by definition they cannot become a member of the successor (Groups.io) group and the photo is automatically credited to the person who initiated the transfer. The original photo owner will not appear in any Groups.io picklist so there is no point in trying to restore their name; it is simply not there to be found.

Was the new member who suddenly found themselves credited with some photos ever a member of the previous Yahoo group? If so, I wonder if there is some sort of concealed record of previous ownership. I cannot think of any other mechanism to explain this.

In the case of importing from Yahoo, the best I could do was to look at the images in Yahoo to find out who had originally uploaded them. Even then, it was of little help as in many cases, the original owner no longer existed even in Yahoo.

Chris, I don't think so!  Probably me not accurately describing my problem!

Whilst I appreciate that I can edit the Album, our problem has been in finding and inserting the name of the photographer/image owner when a lot have been transferred from, in our case Yahoo.  A Search Box would help here as 'Ownership' of the individual images comprising the Album has been credited to me or whoever initiated the transfer and it is a bit of a pain, to say the least, to change the name to the correct person.

Also I noticed yesterday, that the latest member who joined our group seems, within minutes, to have automatically been credited to an existing album that when transferred from Yahoo was credited to me.  Bizarre!  Any ideas?

I believe this is a function of your browser.  There's little or no interaction between windows or tabs.  It sounds like after you logged in, another window/tab was opened where you accessed the file.  Since the URL of the login page was from the file access link, it would still contain information telling you to log in.

Checking, and accessing file now I am definitely logged in, I get the expected https://groups.io/g/... page (blank as file is opened outside browser) - which, on thinking, is what I should be getting after logging in.

moderated Login page oddity when accessing a file #bug

Jeremy H
 

I've just had an oddity - which I think I would describe as a bug.

I had a 'New file uploaded to <group>' e-mail (actually as part of digest) - reading this in e-mail web interface - with a 'You can access this file at the URL: https://groups.io/g/....' type link, on which I clicked to access the file. Whether at that point I was actually logged in to groups.io, or had been logged out after 30 days I couldn't say, but I had a 'Please Log In' page come up. E-mail and password being entered, I clicked the green 'Login' button and had window appear with click to open or download buttons (I use Firefox) - clicked, and file opened ok, no problem. Oddity (or bug) is that the login page remained as was, with e-mail address, etc still filled in - url is https://groups.io/login?r=%2Fg%2F<groupname>%2Ffiles%2F<filename> - on clicking the Login button, I had the same 'file access' window again ... to go round again... (On opening another tab, and going into groups.io, I did go in as being logged in, as to be expected). My expectation is that having logged in ok, and accessed the file, the login page would have been replaced by some kind of 'you are logged in' page - either that group's files page, or home page, or the groups.io 'your groups' page.

If you go to Bouncing Members first, of course you do get all the bouncing members at one go, including the earthlink ones. But you don't see how many of the earthlink members are NOT bouncing. FWIW. It's not a whole lot of extra functionality. But it is a teeny weeny bit.
