Wow. This change really enhances the mute/follow function.

Thanks much!

Done.

Hi All,

In the /topic page, at the top, there is a now a Follow/Unfollow/Mute/Unmute Topic button (which one depends on your settings...)

Thanks,

How about "Enter Your Password (NOT your OTP)"

My secure advice (as a specialist) is to require the OTP instead, because of the security breaches that often happen by people who only know the password so they sneak in while the account owner is AFK and disable authentication so they can go to their own computer and authenticate because they only were able to steal the owner's password.
You have to be logged in to do this, meaning that whoever is entering the password has already passed two-factor authentication.

If that isn't adequate security, then I guess we need a third factor.

I've changed the column title to History.

Wording to disable two-factor (2FA) #suggestion

Jeff Smith
 

I am certain more people have this misunderstanding than care to admit, considering the many days I just spent trying to find out why I could not disable 2FA.

After I click the button "Disable two-factor authentication", the dialog immediately pops up with:
"Enter Your Password To Disable Two-Factor Authentication" and the text entry field.
Note it is redundant language when the label of text field should only tell what needs to be entered here. We already know why we enter our password because it is literally on the button we just hit.

Please just say, "Enter Your Password" in order to avoid confusion.

Actually the problem is since every other site requires me to enter the OTP here from authenticator, plus it literally says "Two-Factor Authentication" in the label of text entry, I was trying to enter the OTP.
My secure advice (as a specialist) is to require the OTP instead, because of the security breaches that often happen by people who only know the password so they sneak in while the account owner is AFK and disable authentication so they can go to their own computer and authenticate because they only were able to steal the owner's password.

Thank you, --jeff


Re: Sort Admin menu sub-items #suggestion

 

One more suggestion: Make the list order customizable by user. That is, have some default, for new users or users not logged in but viewing a public group, and allow the user to change the list order. The same order would apply to all of the user's groups where the options are available. If a new feature is added, it can default to near the top or near the bottom of the list, depending on how much you want to promote the feature.

Re: Sort Admin menu sub-items #suggestion

 

I totally agree. Right now it looks completely random from the perspective of some users (including me). Alphabetical at least is simple and unsurprising.

I think we can disagree about how the list should be ordered. Alphabetical makes sense to me.

Add option to make sub-group member list viewable to parent group members? #suggestion

Sarah Tappon
 

I would like to make my subgroups' membership lists viewable to all members of the parent group. I can't find a straightforward way of doing this. Would love to see it added as an option.

For context, my group is a cohousing community where we want to make it easy for everyone to see who is involved in the various sub-committees.

Thank you!


moderated Re: Better control of muted hashtags #suggestion

bbannayan@...
 

It's been a couple years since this suggestion was made but as a new user this is nearly the first thing that came to mind.  Hiding unwanted hashtags would radically increase the signal to noise ratio in at least one of the groups I'm a member of.

I was about to make that same point about unmoderated groups.

J,

Huh? Order of most frequent use by whom? The most common thing I do is check the activity log, which almost at the very bottom, also against its rightful place in the alphabet. It took me awhile to get used to that.
Yeah, not to mention that if one's group is unmoderated, the (first) Pending link is pretty-much useless.

I also would like to see some of the links rearranged, but not alphabetically though, usage-wise as Bruce suggested.  My fishy personal preference would be having these at the top: Activity, Pending, Members, Settings, Subgroups and Usage, then the rest, Invite, DirectAdd, Integrations, Aliases, Domains, Donations.

Cheers,

rename "Reason" column in Past Members to "History" or "Activity" #suggestion

 

The history column has disappeared from the Past Members list (not sure how long ago this happened) but it turns out that clicking on the Reason field, which is now a link, now takes you to the member's activity history.

What gives? This seems unintuitive. Maybe, since the change, the name of that column should be changed to "History," or "Activity,"even though the word displayed there is actually the "reason" (left, removed, or whatever)? The situation is very confusing and at minimum, if nothing changes, should be documented ("you can see the past member's Activity History by clicking on Reason"). I at first thought the history had entirely disappeared and at first banned a past member (temporarily), as I used to, just so I could see their history.

Hi,

Of course, we could translate the string into french.
I have a similar problem with german language: most of my members don't speak english. I am using empty hashtags for explanations, but it is not rally useful.

Every time I export my group with lots of subgroups I wish for this feature.  It would ensure that items don't get missed and make life easier.
