moderated Add log entry "edited member page" or "edited subscription" #suggestion

 

I don't know how granular this can get, and I think some of it is already being done (e.g., member changing their delivery method), but there is currently no logging of a moderator changing a member's auto-signature, or of a member changing their auto-signature, and possibly some other changes. I would like more detail in the log for changes to the member page (by a mod) and/or subscription (by the member). If I need to get specific here, I would say "add log entry to changing the auto-signature." In my group, the auto-signature carries the cat's medical record and is one of the most important elements of the membership info.

moderated Keyword filtering #suggestion

Ability to create an email subscription based on key words in message (ex. I want to only receive emails if someone post includes the words “pecan pie”). If this feature already exists - please let me know! (Not for hash tags, since they aren’t used consistently enough).

I agree 100% with this, and I would suggest you create a new #suggestion post for it, otherwise it'll get lost in here.

Mark -- We've recently gotten more inquiries in GMF and Group_Help as to why messages are landing in moderation. Although we continue to refer folks to their activity logs it would be nice if the notification just said so.

Anyway, just wanted to give this idea another bump. 

Thanks,
Bruce

Exactly. I would retitle the bug "to members across multiple pages" instead of "to multiple members."

I'm also not sure whether it applies to more actions besides Send Message. It's hard to test, because at least with Send Message, nothing happens until you start composing the message. I don't have enough test bandwidth in my test group to try other actions, and I'm loathe to send test messages to my real group.

The qualification of this is a bug lies in the fact that the page explicitly says "n members checked" and then does the action only to the subset of the smaller number of members checked on the particular page - just in case anyone wants to call this a "feature." :)

Perhaps it should also be moved to the right and coloured red to match other message composition windows.

As always, the devil is in the detail and the original post did not specify members being selected across multiple pages.

There's no problem with my browser and no pattern. The send to multiple members bug is real. Not sure what's going on with the preview feature
Thanks.

There seems to be a pattern here. People say something works, and J. Catlady says, "No, it doesn't." Maybe there's something weird going on with her browser, or her OS? For what it's worth, I'm running Firefox 78.10(esr) on a Gentoo Linux system (kernel version 5.10.27) that I compiled myself. I'm spending $20 a month for a premium group.

It might be nice if the participants in this group had a way to share information about their respective browsers / operating systems, to make it easier to track down real bugs in groups.io software (as opposed to glitches in people's platforms). Just a thought.

More accurately, it sends only to (and displays "sending to") the number members from the current page you're on, be that 0, 1, or however many are checked on that particular page. That's despite the announcement "n members checked" where n is the total from all the pages you selected from.

Maybe it has never worked but that just means it's a OLD bug! It's still a bug. :)

It has never worked when scrolling through multiple pages as far as I recall even though the number of members selected as you navigate from page to page in the member list  is correct. As you said, when you select 'Send Message' from the Actions button, it says sending to 0 (zero) members. It's for that reason that I normally switch to infinite scroll on the rare occasions I need to select multiple members I cannot just do a search for.

I've confirmed that that's the bug. Even on a subsequent page with none selected on that particular page, it says "x members" selected and therefore seems to remember the selections from previous pages. But it has actually lost them and will display "send to 0 members" once you select Send Message.

Were yours on multiple pages? I think that may have been the problem. I think it may be losing the ones on previous pages as you scroll through, and my last page didn’t have any selected.

It works perfectly for me and I've just done another test to prove it. The count of the the number of members selected was correct, messages were sent (according to the Email Delivery History for each member) and messages were received by each member.

moderated Re: Enable membership-editing capability in group-profile page for ADMINS as well #suggestion

 

Another alternative suggestion for the solution (but a few more lines of code more than the original suggestion), is to leave the button strip alone as it works now, and instead introduce a new button next to the "Email" button, shown for Admins only, see attached.

Cheers,
Christos
