Last day of every month is fairly easy.  Set up the event for the first day of the (following) month and repeat monthly, then set it to send a reminder 1 day before it occurs.  Also, don't send a notice when the event does occur.  That should do what you want unless I misunderstood something.

New SEARCH feature works great on my computer on both the DIRECTORY and the MEMBERS LIST.  
However, on my android phone the MEMBERS LIST search works great but the SEARCH button does not appear on the DIRECTORY screen....is it supposed to, or is that not supported on android phones?

I would love to see something like this as well.  One of my groups has something that goes out on the last day of the month, and right now I'm having to send it manually.  The only way I can think to get it on the calendar is to set it up for each month individually, on that month's last day, then have it repeat on a yearly basis.  But that still leaves the problem of February.  It would be a great help to have a last-day-of-the-month option.

I have an event that is held on the last Tuesday of every month, but unfortunately, I cannot create a repeating event to cover the entire year because the options to repeat currently are on the number'd day of the month, or the same week of every month (ex: 4th Tuesday of the month).  Some months may have 4 weeks with that day of the week, while others may have 5.

Bonus points if you can easily exclude certain occurrences of the event during the event creation.  (Ex: Last Tuesday of the month for all months except June & December)

This has been fixed.

Visibility shouldn't matter for a group Owner/Moderator, but there still has to be some profile content. Specifically, if a subscriber has neither an established Display Name, nor a User Name, nor a group profile, you won't be able to find him via a Directory search...for the simple reason that there is nothing in his Directory entry by which to establish a match.

Bruce

This has now been fixed. If you're an owner, you can search on all profiles now.

Cheers, Mark

A further suggestion if I may... Can we get the search on the directory to work the same as on the member list please? It does some wlldcard searching on the member list but not on the directory. In the examples I gave above, my search for Adam in the directory gives me 3 results but the same search term on the member list gives me 4 (it finds the surname Adams).

Thanks,
Andy

Database columns now have a Default Hidden checkbox, where if it's checked, the column is hidden by default.

Yes, it is designed that way, since email addresses are not visible in the directory.

I think the #cal-notice hashtag as a special notice might accomplish what I want on both counts.  I'll let you know how it works.

Lori -- Try editing the #cal-notice hashtag and tick the Special checkbox. 

Having done so, this will apply to all calendar event notifications, not just birthdays and anniversaries. I agree it might be nice to be able to choose this for each event separately, as we already can for #cal-reminders.

I would also like it if there was a way to put in that member's email specifically so they would get an email for their birthday etc.  
A scheduled email to one subscriber (not the whole group) would indeed be a new feature.

Following up on what Bruce said, you could do the same with the #cal-summary hashtag (set it to special notice) and get a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly list of upcoming events sent to each member.  We use a weekly cal-summary and it lists the next 10 events. I must admit I haven't tried the bi-weekly or monthly to see if the numbers differ.

moderated 'Subscription Options' screen upon new subscription is a no-op #bug #fixed

Jim Avera
 

When first subscribing to a group using hte "Join This Group" button on the group home page, a "Subscription Options" screen is presented with Individual/DIgest/Etc. options.  However no matter what the user selects, after clicking "Save", the subscription is set to "Individual Message" delivery as shown in the regular Subscription page.

Also, on the Subscription page, those options are called "Email Delivery", not "Subscription Options", which is confusing.

I discovered this when subscribing to beta.groups.io   Attached are screen-shots showing what I see before and after clicking "Save" on the Subscription Options page.

I have not yet figured out how often to run the process that deletes attachments. I'm thinking probably once a week, unless anyone has a reason it should be run more often.
Mark -- Weekly works for me. A couple more things (there's always at least one more thing isn't there?)...

1) When the last attachment is deleted from a message, it still displays a paperclip icon in the Messages/Topics view. This happens whether they are deleted manually or via the attachment purge job.

2) If an attachment is deleted from a message manually (either via editing the message or deleting an image from Emailed Photos), an audit trail entry is created and the message displays an Edited tag. Attachments deleted via the attachment purge job do not.

These are just observations...I'm not proposing that they need to be acted upon.
