Thanks, Linda. The link works only sporadically, and the circumstances under which it does and doesn't work are too unclear to rely on. So, no-go.

Hi Olivia,
I have been using the calendar to send a message on the first day of every month for almost a year.   One of the settings you used must have been different, if your message was repeating every five minutes.  I’m attaching screen shots, which together show all my settings for that message.
 
Here’s another idea that might work for you.
How about a short note in the Message Footer of every message with a LINK to your FAQ (stored in Files section), which you’ll edit/update when necessary.  The Footer Message can be entered here:
https://groups.io/g/YOURGROUPNAME/manage
 
Hope that helps,
Linda
 

Also: someone (I think it was LInda?) advised clicking on "5 minutes" for reminders. I didn't understand that advice, but I did it in my test last night. It made the announcement start to come out every 5 minutes and I ended up just deleting the whole event.

I realize that the setting above that - "Hashtags Required" - is the one that specifies that hashtags must be used. But I think the explanation for the "mods only" setting would be more clear if made to read "If true, posts can be tagged only with existing hashtags."

Good idea. Changed!

I was running some tests today and changed my own status to moderated so that i could give the other mods in my test group a chance to try out approving, editing, and rejecting messages. This action didn't show up in "moderator activity" and also didn't show up when I specifically checked "poststatus changed" under moderator activity. Not sure whether this is just planned and not yet implemented, or is a bug.

It should show up under Moderator Activity as 'SuchandSuch changed SuchandSuch's delivery via web'. I tested it and it worked for me. Please let me know if you still can't find it.

Thanks,

Hello,
No, you can send a direct link, ending with the extention. I use things to get the files with, that are using windows CE, and apps can not be installed, and they work.

Full disclosure: I have no connection with Groups.io. I am trying to sell other pet group mods on it because I want to get my group out of Yahoo but I don't want to be away from the other cats groups and miss the ease of referring to each other. (It's also why I'm so hung up on having a painless subscription process.)

Well your group is TechTalk so I'm sure your members won't have a problem figuring that out. LOL


I deal with a lot of non-technical members who struggle how to figure out how to access a google doc, some of whom don't have google accounts nor do they want one. I had to make a workaround by setting up a dummy google account and hand out the login info to my listmembers so they could access/edit/view the google docs. Suggestion for anyone dealing with non-technical members, you might want to consider doing the same. Once they learned how to use that login, everything started going smoothly except for people in rural areas still either using dial up or only able to access the internet from their phone. I still have to handhold a couple of them.


I started using google docs when we began to migrate away from Yahoogroups almost 2 years ago and didn't want to manually re-upload everything to a new groups service without knowing for sure if it was going to work for us long term. At the time, neo had just been launched and we literally couldn't function, so waiting wasn't an option. We switched to Wiggio which was glitchy, but better than Neo. We tolerated that for a year until we discovered IO. I haven't had to move any of those files, just insert the links into IO. Saved me a ton of work.

I'm just catching up on these now. I'm  not sure what you mean, Trish, but lots of space, but we send out several 3-4-page documents every two weeks. I suppose it's worth a shot but I can right now that unless and until there's a way to attach a file, this is going to be a big dealbreaker for my fellow pet-group mods. I'd rather stay away from google docs as well. I'm still looking forward to the FAQ Mark said he was putting together on this.;)

Also: someone (I think it was LInda?) advised checking "5 minutes" for reminders. I didn't understand that advice, but I did it in my test last night. It made the announcement start to come out every 5 minutes and I just deleted the whole event reminder.

Yes, the link doesn't work if you're not logged in and a member of my group, so it's not working. It also doesn't work sometimes when I *am* logged in. It seems unpredictable (or is obeying some laws I can't formulate in 25 words or less;)

Thanks, everyone. I'll try inserting the text and not put "5 minutes" for the reminder. What should I put for that? Why was the 5-minute suggestion made? I am very confused.;)

locked Questions about digest and other stuff

Maria
 

Hi! 

I just joined so I apologize if these questions have been asked before. 

Will the digest also be made visually similar to the mobile interface? Wondering if there are plans to make it more graphic/html-"ish"? Can a group add its logo on the top? Can messages be moderated via mobile device? Also will groups.io enable the ability to collect a membership fee for those groups who need it ( as big tent does) ? Or to integrate with an association management provider? And can the digest include a "reply to sender" option for private replies? 


Thank you!

That is a link to a file stored on another service.  That is not a link to a file stored in the "Files" section of groups.io.  I have a text file which contains a list of resources in the "Files" section of my group and the link looks like this.
I uploaded that file to the "Files" section and then obtained the link by right clicking the link and selecting "Copy shortcut" from the context menu as I previously described.

Olivia,

When you do a Direct Add, is the person added just to the mailing list,
or are they also given a default password for Groups.io that they can
then use to log in and change later?
They're email only (an account without a password).

But they can create a password for themselves easily if they visit the web pages. Some of my PTA members have done that without prompting or aid from me.
