moderated Re: Add "second request," "third request," etc. to email subject when resending pending notice #suggestion

 

I am now repeating my request for this feature. I strongly fee that if possible, the second and third sendings of the pending message should be labeled as such. We have now experienced, not for the first time, a member who has responded identically to the both the first and second pending messages, sending us two emails, having apparently seen them both in her inbox at the same time and not realized that the second one was simply a repeat of the first. Labelling as "second attempt" would have prevented this.

That would be very useful - to edit a message and add a missing attachment or photo. Or to change the attachment if we made a mistake.

moderated Edit RSVPs

Nancy Funk <funkmomma71@...>
 

I'm not sure if I asked for this before or not. But here goes. :) Could we please allow group owners & moderators the ability to change RSVPs for members. Our group hosts field trips and other outings, we need the ability to waitlist members who repeatedly no-show to events. Also, because many of our members have no clue how to change their RSVP, even with being shown how to, we need the ability to do that for our members as it comes up.  Thanks!


moderated Calendar title/description #suggestion

Drew
 

Request: owner-editable title and description fields for the Calendar, sImilar to the Database tables. This would be especially useful for public calendars and those for which group subscribers are permitted to make entries. Then we could include the specific purpose and instructions for use at the top of the calendar.


moderated Re: Add ability to remove or edit customized Invite text without sending invitations

 

No, the option to remove or edit the invite text after the current invitation is sent (within the invite screen and without going through member notices) is what’s being asked for. Nothing about creating invitations or about default text.

moderated Re: Add ability to remove or edit customized Invite text without sending invitations

 

How do you "remove them"? The feature I'm asking for here is the ability to easily remove them. Right now it's very difficult to remove the old invite text until you create and send a new invite. The old text just stays there.
Well, if we are talking about the same feature: I go to "settings" then "member notices" and there I have the window with the latest invite text. I just delete it and update.

I don't doubt that the language issue is a serious one, and that it is related to this one in the sense that it involves invitations, but other than that it seems to me to be a separate issue.

One of many "annoyances" (missing features or controls) that would be better instituted, than relying on "better Moderator training"...

With those members’ email clients, do you know whether the photos are coming through in line or as attachments?  Some clients may downgrade them based on their settings.

Perhaps you could isolate the issue by having one or more of the fuzzy pictures forwarded to you for comparison to a good picture. If they are the same file and resolution, then the fuzziness probably has something to do with what the users are using to view the images.

That's a separate issue, with a different problem - comprehensibility, rather than privacy - and a different solution, where groups.io might, at some point in the future, allow the user to choose their language and then print all fixed text in that language. I would not mix the language issue up with the issue of leaving personal messages to invitees lying around indefinitely, with them perhaps being inadvertently sent to the next invitee.

Once I was picking up an Rx at the pharmacy and they accidentally included the last customer's detailed prescription sheet with all their personal info in it. That's more what this issue is akin to. Not the Rx boilerplate being in the wrong language.

Well, obviously I had a different issue in mind which doesn´t have to do with privacy. I´m talking about the invite-possibility within the settings. I write different invitations each time and remove them afterwards. They are in German and the text around them is default and in English, so I do favour the idea that there is no other default text (which I find completely unnecessary) except for the one composed individually in the invitation. But I don´t know if we are talking about the same thing.

As I said, this is not my group I'm talking about. It's a group where the members are happily using the #chat hashtag, unaware that it accomplishes nothing, and unaware that it mistakenly labels their threads as chats when they're not.

moderated Re: Thread merge issue

 

Thank you for the clarification, Bruce. It has only become a problem for me very recently, not as long ago as January.

I have countless members who think that their every thought merits a new thread with a new subject line. Previously I would use my lovely Moderate First Message option, change the subject line to match their existing thread, and lo and behold, their post reached the group and the correct thread and everybody was happy. Now, if I change the subject line to match an existing thread, a new thread is created and I have to go and merge them. Alternatively I have to reject them.

I wonder if it might be possible for threads generated in such circumstances (i.e. first message moderated/subject line altered by mod) to thread automatically into the existing thread, but perhaps that's not feasible.

Thank you.

Helen


moderated Re: restrict #chat hashtag to actual chats #suggestion

 

p.s. This is a meta-use of the tag. It is in my message title only as part of the text of the title, but it is used as a hashtag on the thread. That was unintentional.

moderated restrict #chat hashtag to actual chats #suggestion

 

In one of the groups I'm in, people are adding the #chat hashtag to their threads, evidently thinking it means something. There are not even any chats in that group. Could the #chat hashtag be restricted by the system to actual chats, to which it is automatically added anyway? In other words, not let users add the tag to anything they want?
