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

Yeah; sorry about missing that out. I realised not long after I posted it.

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.

The [Map] link shows up on Premium groups when you are in list mode

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.

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • BUGFIX: The activity log line when editing a message was 'via email' when it can only be 'via web'.
  • BUGFIX: The 'Vote Now' link in poll announcement emails would fail for members of announcement groups.
  • CHANGE: If a group had separate footers checked, we were not resizing any attached images according to group settings. I don't remember why I coded it that way, but I've changed it so that we do resize images.
  • NEW: Remove 'ADV:' from subject lines.
  • CHANGE: Moved the Indivisible link in the pricing page to be in the non-profits section. Also updated the instructions for enterprise non-profits.
  • NEW: Added a 'Types Of Groups That Aren't Permitted' section to the help.
  • CHANGE: In the help section, changed the sidebar so it didn't stay fixed, which was causing issues for some people.
  • BUGFIX: Fixed a couple of cases where we didn't handle collapsing quoted message replies when viewing the archives.
  • CHANGE: When viewing messages, we no longer collapse signatures within a quoted block.
  • BUGFIX: Fixed a goroutine leak in the anti-virus checker.

Have a good weekend everyone.

For address fields, there should already be a [Map] link that goes to Google Maps. Or are you talking about something else?

Hi Mark,

are we likely to see movement on any of these suggestions anytime soon?

Can PG Offline save the messages (with attachments) in mbox format? If so, we can use that to do the import for you.

Bob, I should have been more clear. I meant, "what will it cost over-and-above the Premium package price?"

I am a Network Administrator by trade and, as a result, am also very familiar with database capabilities and technology. I quickly built a fairly powerful D-Series desktop on my personal Azure account, installed PG Offline and proceeded to download all 91,336 messages and 350 MB of files from my Yahoo group in less than 6 hours without any scary lockouts I was told would certainly occur. So, I now know for a fact that it is possible to download the Attachments because I'm looking at them on my desktop.

What I don't understand is why this hasn't already been available for many years as part of the transfer process, especially when attachments are built into messaging here. It doesn't make sense from a future business standpoint, either, when very serious maintenance issues at Yahoo are becoming painfully obvious and indicate Groups won't be around much longer. I will not be the only one asking for this when Yahoo decides to pull the plug.

So, to clarify, I would be willing to pay a reasonable hourly rate for an appropriate person within the Groups.IO organization to do the necessary database work in lieu of a standard procedure.

We want to move here because we know GIO's historical ties to eGroups and Yahoo, employing a similar UX, is well-maintained and supported.

If no one will help us, we will be forced to use phpBB or some other package to accomplish what we need and Groups.IO will not have us as a customer.

Jim,

I can't answer your question other than to say the answer has always been that the feature is not available. If you want to try to negotiate a different answer, you will need to contact support at groups dot io.

However, if you have the attachments from PG Offline, could you manually upload them as files to groups.io.

I also note that messages on Groups.IO have the exact same attachment capability.

If PG Offline can copy message attachments from Yahoo, why then is Groups.IO unable to do the same?

We are a genealogy group. We're don't have to have the links but we need our attachments. At last count, we have about 2,600 attachments spread over 91,000 posts that requires only about 350 MB of storage. There is no point in moving to Groups.IO without them.

If this is service for which we must pay, how much will it cost? What do we have to do to get this done?
