moderated List item style (lower alpha, lower roman, etc.) wrong when viewed in Guidelines #bug #fixed

Jim Avera
 

If a "Guidelines" notice contains a list with "lower alpha" style elements (a, b, etc. instead of 1,2,...), it appears correctly in the preview, but when saved and viewed at https://beta.groups.io/g/.../guidelines the list has numbers instead of letters. 

STEPS TO REPRODUCE:

Admin->Settings : Member Notices
Create or edit the "Group Guidelines" notice
Type this:

Before

Red
Green
Blue

After

Then select the 3 lines in the middle, and make them a numbered list using "lower alpha" labels (in the drop-down menu for creating Numbers Lists).  The three lines should be labeled a,b, and c.

Save

Now visit the group's "Guidelines" page...
The list appears as 1,2,3 instead of a,b,c

FWIW I tried Firefox and Chrome browsers; both show the list as 1,2,3 in Guidelines


moderated Create and modify hashtags across subgroups #suggestion

Andy Wedge
 

Hi Mark,

as a group owner I would like the ability to be able to Create, Update and Delete hashtags in my group and all of its subgroups.

To ensure consistency across all the subgroups our members may be in (I have around 20) it takes a long time to open each subgroup and define or update hashtag properties. Having the ability to apply hashtag changes across all (or selected) subgroups would be a real time-saver.

Thanks,
Andy

Andy,

We should be picking up all the defaults now. Off-list, can you send me an example of the dial-in details that you'd like included?

Thanks,
Mark

Just copy/paste the details of a Zoom meeting into the repeating event and then save with the 'all events' option..  I've done that with a repeating event on my calendar. Set the Location field to be the meeting link and past any other text in the event details area. Job done.  No need to delete and re-create the event.

, An easier way to do this would be when the calendar event goes out, have the zoom host reply with the link to the zoom meeting. Then anybody can click and join the meeting that needs to.

It seems you cannot add Zoom to an existing event, the Zoom button is
missing if you 'edit event'. We would be looking to add Zoom to our
regular monthly meetings while the lockdown is on. So we would have to
delete that event and create a new one.

I take it only the host of the meeting can create the Zoom alert. We
would have to give our host calendar permissions for this, at the
moment we have it set so that only mods can create calendar events.

You can add a zoom meeting to an existing event. But you cannot currently add zoom meetings to repeating calendar events.

No only the person that is setting up the meeting needs a zoom account.

I may have made an error and this email wasn't generated from groups IO that said that. Sorry, but thanks for getting back to me.
 
I did notice another change that was made and I thank you for that!
Now when graphics or embedded or inserted images were shared in groups IO, and we go to save them from the Message area of the board, we now get to see the original name that the embedded or inserted images were named instead of just 0, 1, 2 etc

We are now in daylight savings time so it should read Central Daylight Time instead of Standard.

For emails that we receive (and then send back out to groups), we don't mess with the Date header line at all. If the message was posted via the groups.io website, we do generate the date line, and that would be our bug. But I don't see how that could happen.

...and in addition, it would be helpful if the integration could include the dial-in details that are normally generated when I schedule a meeting through the Zoom application.

...and in addition, the #zoom hashtag that is added to the meeting subject line is not added to the group list of hashtags.

The format of the meeting invite text looks good now however I have noticed that the Zoom integration does not pick up my default values in the Zoom app. In the integration, the host & participant video defaults to 'on', waiting rooms are not enabled and it always generates a new password for each meeting.  In the Zoom application with my personal meeting id (PMI) I can keep the same password.

Andy

The pwd= parameter which should contain the encrypted password also has part of the meeting number at the end and contains spaces. The next text line which is supposed to show the password is actually showing the last 4 digits of my personal meeting id.

This should all be fixed now.

In which case there would need to be some sort of tracking mechanism to know if you've read the latest version.  On some groups they may never get changed, on others they may get changed as often as daily.

Actually, because the time is corrected properly, I think it should just say Central Time.  A lot less work and always correct! ;>)

You need a Zoom account if you are hosting a meeting. Otherwise, you can just use the Zoom application to join a meeting by entering the meeting number (and password if required).

I've wondered about this when I end up in Messages view sometimes, but never pursued it since I always end up back in Topic view.  Seems that it should be consistent so the sticky shows up no matter which view a member prefers.  If they always use Messages or Expanded, they could miss some important information and wonder why.
If I may be so bold, I am OK with "Sticky's" anywhere and everywhere as long as I can dismiss (hide) them once I have read them.
