It looks to me like the setup and administrative time needed for that would be excessive and could well be used for improving GIO.  BTW, I've never worked in a shop that did use it.

I'm still only responding to support emails from premium group owners right now.
Clarification please.  Are support requests from free group owners just tossed in the bit bucket?  I suspect that they are because I've submitted a few items, mostly bugs, and no longer get the acknowledgement auto reply with request number.  Some sort of reply or rejection notice would be more appealing.  These have been items that effect paid groups as well.

Thanks,
Duane

Ok, I got around the title character restriction by corrupting the meaning slightly. I wish longer titles were allowed. But I did succeed in generating the post.

That doesn't mean there aren't lots of requests and ideas to make it better. I wouldn't say that an unfriendly UI for feature requests is hunky dory because, after all, the product is good enough already.

Seems pretty unusable. It looks like it cuts off titles consisting of more than the one line allowed in the box. But the titles showing of the existing posts are longer than that. There was no way I could create a post with title "Allow unlocking/unmoderating of auto-locked/moderated topics." As soon as I got to about the last word, it would show only "ics." But then when I went into the "details" pane, the title pane went back to the *beginning* of the title and the "ics" had disappeared. I tried making the title shorter and shorter and eventually gave up.

Thanks Duane, ( the Devil made me say that).   Tried the trillo thing but most of the descriptions were above my pay-grade.  Couldn't really understand what I was reading.

I just tried to get the download and got a 404 unknown page.  even the advertised PDF help file  is not there...

Mark,

The service charges us based on the number of people commenting, so
I've restricted the login ability to people who are moderators or
owners of premium groups only. But anyone can view the site.
Clicking the LOG IN button when you don't qualify rather rudely dumps one back at the Groups.io home page without explanation. Very disorienting.

At least, I assume that's the reason I got dumped.

Visited the canny.io thing and tried to post two requests.  The first went fine, but the second disappeared.  UI not User-Friendly enough for my taste but hopefully I won't have to visit it too often as groups.io has things pretty much together.

Hi All,

As noted several times, the existing Trello board for tracking feature requests is very much out of date, and I have been looking for something better. It was recommended that I check out a service called Canny, and I've gone ahead and set up an integration with them. Canny is like a next-gen Uservoice, for people familiar with that service.


You need to log in to comment/submit feature requests; the login system uses your Groups.io login, so you don't need to enter a password or anything. The service charges us based on the number of people commenting, so I've restricted the login ability to people who are moderators or owners of premium groups only. But anyone can view the site.

Please check it out and let me know what you think. One favor to ask, when adding feature requests, please be as detailed as possible, with examples if you can. Also, I cannot guarantee any particular feature will be implemented, and I cannot guarantee any order of feature development.

Thanks,
Mark

Mark,

Will you retain another path for those who are not "owners or moderators of premium groups?" Perhaps just maintaining beta.groups.io?

Yup, but that doesn't work for images in the database.  And, if you don't know Excel you're SOL.

Sort of.  Mark used Trello at one time, but has been looking for something better (of course, the YG mess didn't speed things up any ;>).  It hasn't been updated in some time (some of the items are actually complete), but you can look it over anyway, https://trello.com/b/qu3WgzVq/beta
