Can you add a feature where a Yahoo Group owner gives a list of members who have declared their opposition to the move to GIO and therefore, they are excluded from the transfer including all their identifiable data such as their email addresses, posts, files, photos, etc.?

I have just added this. When setting up or editing a yahoo transfer, you can now specify a list of email addresses to exclude, one per line.

For each of these people, we exclude all files, photos, databases and messages owned by them. Also, any photo albums or file folders owned by them are completely skipped.

We do our best, but for some very old messages, we don't have the full email address of the sender (you can blame me for that back in the ONElist days). So we might transfer messages that we shouldn't, in that case.

Cheers,
Mark


moderated Re: New premium group feature: event summary emails

Nina Eppes
 

I like this idea, but for my chorus group, an event summary every week would be overkill because we don't have that many events and they're fairly spread out; therefore, we'd see the same ones listed in the summary email for several weeks in a row. However, I think a summary once a month would work nicely for us. Would it be possible to add an option to send the event summary monthly?

Thanks,
Nina

Can we also get the Map link to open in a new tab, just like the website link?

Hi Mark,
It would be great if this info was available in the "View Source" of every message, when available.

Thanks,
Linda


moderated Pending subscription message now including location/other info

 

Hi All,

Just fyi, the pending subscription email notifications now include the pending subscriber's platform, browser, location and IP address in the message, assuming they applied to the group via the website. This is part of some work I'm doing to track people's devices and locations, to increase account security.

Please let me know if you see any funny results.

Thanks,
Mark


moderated New premium group feature: event summary emails

 

Hi All,

I just pushed a new feature for premium groups, event summary emails. Every Friday morning, you can have an email sent to your group listing the next 20 events in your group. It's tagged with #cal-summary. To turn it on, look for the new checkbox in the Calendar section of your group settings page.

Cheers,
Mark


moderated Schedule a special notice to go out on a specific date and time #suggestion

Hi Mark, is there a possibility of you adding something that allows you to set a special notice post to go out at a specific date and time?  I understand it can be done somewhat with calendaring events but that does not work for me as the format would be different.  When I'm traveling in another country it is difficult to get a specific post out in the morning on the correct date so just wondering if that is a possibility in the future?

moderated Re: "Show quoted text" box is great, now pushing my luck with further suggestion

 

Mark,

I finally got a chance to test this. You did exactly what you said you did, namely: when there is a reply via email, the signature now appears when viewing the reply in the archives, rather than being swept into the quoted test.

However, my request was more general and not qualified by the phrase "when viewing messages in the archives." :) When viewing a reply in email, the sig is still put at the very bottom, below all the quoted text, and is therefore not really seen in general, or is hard to see.

I was hoping that for display purposes, either in the email OR the archive message, the signature would appear directly below the message body. In essence, it would be treated as part of the message body, at least for display purposes. (I realize it needs to be treated differently for other purposes, e.g., search.)

When someone composes a message, the auto-sig seems to be just a convenience in that it appears at the bottom of the message body and can still be modified while composing the message. It *is*, at least in that sense, part of the message body.

But I'm probably just getting greedy as usual. :)

That may seem simple to you Bob but to me it is a huge chore.

What used to be a simple click of a button on Yahoo has turned into a several hours chore on Groups.io

Thanks anyway
Pamela

I find it simple to Export the Database(s) in CSV format and then print them from there so I can set the format as I like.

May I add to this?

I would dearly love a Print option.
I have to print several databases each month and it is quite a chore without the option to simply print from groups.io

Please consider !!

Thanks for all your hard work,
Kind regards,
Pamela

The answer is yes to both. :)

Find the member you wish to promote to moderator in the members list.
Click on their entry in that list anywhere except the checkbox. (This will take to the membership information for that specific individual.)
Look down the various headings (User Name, Display Name, Joined) until you get to Role. (It should currently show Member)
Click on the arrow at the right hand side of that "box" to reveal a drop - down menu; select Moderator.
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on Save.

Job done.
