Have you tried the Settings page, in the Message Formatting panel, to set "Normalize HTML Emails"?

It may be helpful if this information was included in the member list download.

moderated Two requests: Format painter and option to allow forwarding of messages #suggestion

Jennifer Christian
 

Hello all -

1.  Format painter button:    Having this option would sure be nice.   I don't like releasing messages sent in with a hodgepodge of colors and fonts and line spacings  -- and it is nearly impossible without a format painter to get things to look professional.   Is there a way to do this already?  If not, is it a difficult thing to add?

2.  In this time of COVID-19, I have realized that a list-serv can be a good way to START propagating information.  But if members CANNOT forward messages, the propagation stops there.   I realize that enabling wholesale forwarding messages defeats the idea of a restricted group -- which all of mine are.  But somehow as moderator,  I would like to be able to turn on / turn off a forwarding option for individual messages when dissemination of a piece of news or an opportunity would be good.   Is this possible?

Cordially,
Jennifer Christian
WFDRoundtable@groups.io
ACOEM-WFDSection@groups.io
etc.

Is it really? I have looked at the two Members Lists to which I have access and cannot see it. My initial feeling was that this might be another manifestation of a 4:3 display, (see this thread) but shrinking the display size still leaves the "Applied" column firmly glued to the right hand side of the display.

And just in case anyone asks... there is no horizontal scroll bar showing.

On the Member List, the Joined date/time was moved to the upper right, directly across from their email address.  The TZ is to the right of that.  I believe only owner/mods can see that, but I don't have any groups set to allow members to see the list to verify.  A member can easily see which TZ they've selected by looking at their Account Preferences.

This would be useful, I don't see it looking at a member on our member list.  Only joiined.  Is this something that only groups.io owners and moderators can see?

This should be fixed now. We're now allowing 'list-style-type' styling in user generated content.

While I was checking this morning to see if digests were being delivered (based on a question I was looking into), I noticed that some members didn't get one.  Then it dawned on me that they aren't in the same time zone as me (used as the group default) so will get theirs later/earlier.  In cases like this, it would be really handy if there were a notation in their member record of which TZ they have selected.  I wouldn't want to be able to change it, just see it.  Maybe next to or just below the Joined date.  Due to some areas not having an official abbreviation, showing them in UTC might be best.

I've tweaked the display on that page a bit and added the user timezone as well.

moderated Emergency maintenance tonight at 8pm Pacific time #downtime

 

Hi All,

I'm once again seeing the main database report corruption issues and I think at this point it's prudent to switch over to one of our backup databases. I have no reason to believe any data's been lost, this is just an index issue. The site will be down starting at 8pm Pacific Time (3am UTC time). I'd say plan for an hour outage, although I don't think it'll take nearly that long. Email sent to groups during this time will be queued up and delivered once the site is back up.

Thanks, Mark


moderated Make mute/unmute and follow/unfollow tools consistent #suggestion

Peter Cook
 

I am encouraging my members to use hashtags, mute, and follow to better manage their email traffic. There's quite a bit of confusion because the tools to do this are somewhat scattered. I’d like to suggest greater consistency in the way they are accessed and used. Here’s a set of suggestions:

On the Hashtags page (<mygroup>.groups.io/g/main/hashtags): 
Add a “follow/unfollow” button next to the “mute/unmute” button.

On the Topics page (<mygroup>.groups.io/g/main/topics): 
Add “follow/unfollow” and “mute/unmute” options for both hashtags and topics, perhaps in the “More” dropdown under a message.

In messages received by email: 
Have consistent “follow/unfollow” and “mute/unmute” links for both hashtags and topics in the digest, summary, and individual email modes.

Pete

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
