moderated Enhancing the usefulness of the member download #suggestion

Rick N
 

The member download feature could be enhanced by a few simple changes:

  1. If a custom sort order is displayed by clicking on a column header, then the members are downloaded in that same order.
  2. If a search term returns a limited number of members, then only those members will be downloaded.

moderated Please change photo pixel size restriction to photo file size restriction #suggestion

 

Hi,

Would it be possible to do this (change photo pixel size restriction to photo file size restriction)?

It make much more sense to do it this way.  Examples of what users may upload:

iPhone original photo 3264 x 2448 px jpg:  1.5 MB
iPhone original photo with 25% jpg quality setting:  0.25 MB
iPhone photo reduced to 1024 x 768 with high jpg quality setting:  0.78 MB
iPhone photo changed to 1024 x 768 uncompressed TIF:  2.4 MB

Most often, a large pixel size photo will be a lot better for viewing even if the jpg quality is set lower, while other photo formats may be accepted in a smaller format size that give a reduction in viewing quality with taking 3-10x the storage space.  This makes no sense.

Seems like the change may be pretty easy since you already offer that restriction in mail attachments?

Thank you and HNY,


Mark McNabb

I understood "integration" in the OP's sense to mean that posts to the FB page are automatically sent to the IO group as either a notification or an actual post, and vice versa (e-mails sent to the IO group automatically get posted to the FB group).

Is that what you meant, Jakkdaw (or Mark), or do you mean having a little FB box on the page, like Bob's web site has?

Possibly, integration of a FB page could be made to work for those of us who have them?

My thought - for what it's worth - is that the beta group is where I can raise an issue of Groups.io not doing what I expect/think it should/would like it to - which maybe due to a bug, a not yet requested or implemented feature, or just me not understanding things - without having to work out/guess which; and where this can be discussed to come up with a consensus of what 'correct' behaviour is (or should be). Resulting in bug report, feature request or explanation. And that Canny (or Trello before) is then essentially a (publicly visible/editable) 'to-do' list of feature requests.

moderated Re: Joining subgroup via e-mail directly only subscribes user to main group #bug

Jeremy H
 

This is one of a number of related issues, where on joining or leaving a main and sub-group, things do not happen as I expect or think they ought to - whether resolving them is a matter of fixing bug(s), or feature request(s) I'm not sure: they all boil down to an imperfect implementation of the sub-group feature. See also on GMF, topic https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/topic/joining_the_subgroup_directly/69348244 : much of what follows copied from there.

Let me start by stating I expect (and would think correct behaviour):

All concerned ((putative) subscriber and moderators/owners - for both main and sub-group - they may or may not be the same) should be aware of, and have a record of, what has happened, for both main and sub-group.

For joining (or leaving) a main group (only - no-sub-group membership involved), or a sub-group (when already a main group member), however triggered - as normal, with appropriate sequence of e-mails, approvals and activity log entries.

For joining a sub-group, when not a member of the main group:
  • on application (by e-mail or web), confirmation e-mail should say that joining sub-group means also joining the main group; on confirming, the main group joining process be gone through first (with appropriate e-mails, approval, and activity logs); then the sub-group process (likewise). If two approvals are needed, perhaps both should be done first, before any other part of part of the joining processes.
  • on invitation, if the inviter is not a main group moderator with appropriate permission, then first that approval (to invite to main group) needs  be obtained, then invitation e-mail should state that it means to both main and sub-group, and on accepting the invite, the joining processes be gone through for both, as above.
  • on direct add, likewise.
On leaving a main group, when also a member of sub-group(s) - confirmation e-mail should state '...and any sub-groups that you a member of', or list them; and then leaving e-mails and activity logs for the sub-group(s) as well as the main group (currently is main group only).

Currently 
  • A Subscribe+ e-mail results - if not already a Main Group member- in them (as Samuel has stated) joining the Main group (only), without any indication to them that they will (confirmation e-mail refers only to the sub-group) - the first they know is the Welcome to Main@~ email. (A subsequent Subscribe+ e-mail results in them joining the sub-group)
  • An Invite causes them to be joined to the Sub Group (with e-mails to them and sub-group owner, and an 'accepted invite' activity log), and the Main group - without any notification (e-mail or activity log) - they just (mysteriously) appear on the list of members, and the first the invitee knows about their main group membership is receiving a message. Note that this happens whether or not the inviter (who has to be a sub-group moderator) has the appropriate main group privilege to grant membership: if he doesn't, the first the main group owner will know is if they check the membership list - and realise that there are unexpected (and quite possibly unwanted)
  • On leaving a main group, there is a correct (expected) sequence (of logs and e-mails) for this; but membership of sub-groups is just terminated, without any indication (by e-mail or activity log)
While I think - given that sub-group membership is dependent on main group membership - that, except in Samuels's case (joining sub-group leading to main group membership), memberships do change as might be expected , it is very much the case that they are not (completely) notified or logged, and people can find that they have mysteriously joined (or left) groups (sub or main) that they didn't expect to, certainly if they don't know/realise what is going on.

Hi Mark

Is there any chance of this being resolved?

I run a group that is entirely based on discussion of a Facebook page that we don't seem to be able to view otherwise and the group has been on hold since August. I would like to know if there is any chance of a solution or whether to just close down the group. Obviously I would prefer to keep it going if I can.

Thanks

No, they are in alphabetical order based on the name the group was created as. The list however displays the wording that the owner has chosen as the group's display name.

I must eat my words. The logo link is even less intuitive than that. It sometimes take you to whatever page you visted previously, e.g. Feed, Your Groups, Topics, etc.

I know it's a bit odd that clicking the web site logo does not take you to the web site's main page (as one would expect), but to a page listing your subscriptions, but fortunately for us, that's the way it is.

(In addition, sorry for maybe hijacking the thread, the groups in the pull-down menu aren't in any logical order, whereas the groups on the Your Groups page are alphabetical, with owned groups at the top.)

Right now it's always the same height (not big enough IMO) regardless of the screen's vertical-size, so there is scrolling that much of it can be avoided if the menu's vertical size/height was bigger.

Thanks and Cheers,

>>> superfluous or confusing<<<

If you think in a logical linear fashion, not at all. 

A bug isn’t confirmed until Mark receives the email and verifies it’s a bug (or is not.)

The prefix (ie, qualifier) “bug”report@ is technically incorrect because no one knows when submitting it that’s it’s a bug (vs potential) until it’s verified to be as such by Mark. 
Someone could think,  “I don’t know whether it’s a true bug or user error, or machine/browser error, so I better not use that address.”

(Subsequent silence on this doesn’t indicate agreement with left coast logic.  LOL)

Exactly, so the adjective is either superfluous or confusing, depending on who is using it. It serves no purpose. 😊

While playing with various things the last few days, relative to some questions that have been asked recently, I realized that it would be beneficial to have some additional information included when using the Download button on the Members page.  In this case, it would specifically be the "id", "user_id", and "member_notes" that are included in the export (JSON) file.  Ideally, all of the information contained in the export could be included in the download, but that might be stretching it a bit.

Thanks,
Duane

In response to Sandi’s comment about both bugs and support questions addressed to <support@>, <potential-bug@> (or whatever@) would be an address specifically for bugs. 
i.e., @ being common for an email address, not for a (#) hashtag. 
Focus LOL.
