moderated Allow formatting options on rejected message pop-up panel #suggestion

Andy Wedge
 

Hi Mark,

there are no message formatting options on the pop-up panel where you can type details of why a message is being rejected. It is possible to select a previously defined member notice but any formatting defined when that message was created is lost when it is copied into the rejected message panel.

Can we have the same formatting options on the rejected message panel that we have when typing a normal message?

Thanks,
Andy


moderated Download/export a list of members that includes all subgroups that they belong to #suggestion

Beth Weld
 

Currently, in the Main Group in Admin/Subgroups, a list is displayed of all members and the subgroups that they belong to.  This is a very powerful tool, and it would be great to be able to download/export that information to better manage members. We have over 25 subgroups and 500+ members, and we are trying to track that information manually which is not really possible.
Thanks
Beth

Andy, 

 

That’s absolutely correct.  But it doesn’t include past members so a filter have been applied to exclude them.

The csv has a membership status field that indicated “bouncing, “pending” etc.  I’m sure “past“ could be added.

 

I’m generally pleased wit the way the group works but subscriber management is cumbersome.   It would be really beneficial to be able to sort, filter, etc a group the main member list.

Am I the only one interested in such facilities?

This will display the list on your screen,

The download button always gives a list of current members regardless of the list you are looking at.

moderated Make link at top of digest email more user friendly #suggestion

Andy Wedge
 

Hi Mark,

the text of the top of the Full Digest states:

View all your groups.io groups, and edit your subscriptions, here.

This actually takes you to the last home page visited which could be the Feed or Calendar etc. I think it would be more helpful if it actually took you to the groups page as the text suggests it does.

Thanks,
Andy

I don't think so. Seems to me that the term "unsubscribe" has been customary for millions of people for decades.
The term 'unsubscribe' is used at the bottom of digest emails and I agree with ro-esp that the term has been in use for a long time so is widely understood. I'm not sure changing the button text adds value in this case.

I don't see the improvement. "Leave" has several different meanings. If you prefer calling subscribers members, how about "end membership"?

I don’t want to be obtuse here, I did exactly as you suggested.

What I got was a csv file for all the current members excluding past members!

 

That’s why I asked the question!

You can easily download the past members by using the large Download button above the list.
This will display the list on your screen, Select all, copy and past it into a text file 
Save the file as a .csv and you are all set to manipulate it with something like Excel.
Nothing very tricky there

That's correct.  To see the time they joined, hover over the date.  (If it happens to be today, it will just show the time.)

Not having looked at that field previously I may have been confused here.  It could be that only the joined date is displayed and the UTC is NOT the joined time, but rather their time zone setting.  Sorry if this is the case.

Contrary to what was hinted at in some earlier posts the Time Zone is shown on an individual member's record page, not the Members List.

I still don't see it.  Just the joined date and time.  Here is a cut and paste of that line from one of our member.  I am a co owner by the way.

I noticed a post where the moderator was asking for a sort on the date format.  So that;s another instance of the need to be able to sort on the subscriber fields

I also noticed that it isn’t possible to download the past members list.  That could be useful.

Since this should really be a one-time thing, I'd use the Export to get the information and notify those that need it.  If it's a 'local' group, the correct setting could be made in the Default Sub Settings for future members.

It would also be desirable if it could be included in the Directory, both in the Overview and individual views.

Something else that I noticed in looking at this, is that on the member list display, according to the column heading, what is displayed is date 'Applied' rather than 'Joined'

It's nice to have on each individual Member Record page...

but it would be most useful if it were also a sortable column on the Member list,
so members can be sorted by Time Zone.

Especially if you want to send a message only to those who might want to correct from the (until recently) default Pacific Time Zone (currently UTC-7).


moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • INTERNAL: Changed how we were limiting email sent to some domains, to use the MX server domain as a key for limiting instead of the receipient's domain. This will affect all messages to GoDaddy hosted domains, orange.fr/wanadoo.fr, earthlink/mindspring/netcom and a couple others. This will hopefully allow us to keep under per-connection limits imposed by these email service providers and avoid getting temporarily blocked for trying to send too much email at one time.
  • INTERNAL: Technical debt cleanup of web page templates. An ongoing process.
  • CHANGE: Updated the Help Center manuals with updates from Nina.
  • API: /downloadarchives was not returning the messages in ascending date order.
  • CHANGE: Allow 'list-style-type' styling in user generated content.
  • CHANGE: Some formatting tweaks to the Member page, including displaying the member's timezone.
  • CHANGE: Changed 'Unsubscribe' button in the Subscription page to 'Leave Group' to be more clear.
  • SYSADMIN: Switched primary database machines because of continuing (minor) corruption issues.
  • CHANGE: When viewing a member's information on mobile, changed the nav buttons at the top to a dropdown instead. Also fixed several navigation bugs when viewing past members.

Take care everyone.

Mark

No, you can turn it off and on as needed.

If I DO select "normalize" HTML, will I as moderator be able to add back in emphasis or color when I want to?   Since I am often passing along items of interest to my readers, it is often helpful to be able to draw attention to a particular sentence in a posting with highlighted or colored text.
You can't use fonts, sizes, and colors while it's on, but you can use bold and italic for emphasis, along with inline images.

We can continue the discussion on GMF, if you want, since this really isn't the proper group for that.
