moderated Re: Search Function - Search Options Available From All Pages #suggestion

Bill Hazel
 

While in a discussion on GMF about searching and including the Official Help page in the results, it occurred to me that it could be added as a default option in the drop-down menu at the groups.io level so it would show up on every page.

I'm usually pretty aware of what's on a webpage but it took me nearly 3 months to really figure out that the Official Help page was a completely different source of information and I've looked for help a lot!

The only reason I did figure it out is I kept finding links to it in messages.

The Feb 7th updated date was an unintended side effect of a change I made to optimize our ability to re-index files when regenerating a search cluster. Sorry about that, it's not something that should happen again.

No, the user was offered an "Apply for Membership" button, and clicking it should apply for membership. 

I just tested this. Click the Apply button, enter your (existing) email address, and it comes back with an error saying that email address exists and that you need to Log In. Clicking the Log In link in that error message gets you to the login screen, where after you enter your password, the group application flow continues as if you had previously been logged in, and your application is submitted. Is this not what you saw?

 
OTOH, one valid reason to force the user to login to the old account, would be if simply having a GIO account is intended to prevent anyone else from submitting subscription requests in your name.  That's nice, but I would rather there be an explicit "Lock out new subscription requests while not logged in" feature; because doing that by default leads to an unpleasant experience for naive users.

I'm not saying the current Join flow is the best, and I'm certainly open to suggestions for improving it, but having an option and defaulting it to allowing any rando to use your email address to apply to any group is a recipe for abuse.


Thanks,
Mark

Whether or not an old account exists, the subscription-confirmation process is the same, i.e. a request is sent to the owner/moderators, who approve it, and the user gets a Welcome email back.  

Making them log into their old GIO account, which they probably don't know exists and don't care about, makes a simple operation complicated and unintelligible for non-tech-savvy people (which describes many people likely to join my group, sad to say).

I feel like I should clarify this.  That should really say "could be addressed...".  At the same time, I can see where it could be interpreted as a suggestion (though Mark approved it as a bug) - make the information more clear to the user that they need to apply after logging in when they already have an account.

I also feel like I need to apologize for possibly giving the impression that I was speaking for GIO in my reply.  It was a personal opinion and I didn't state that.

moderated Dynamic sizing of monthly calendar view #suggestion

Andy Wedge
 

In many cases when looking at the calendar in Monthly view mode the entire bottom line of the grid is actually for the following month. I suspect this is due to the grid size being fixed at 7x6 so it is just being filled in rather leaving empty spaces.

Can this be changed so it doesn't display any more lines than needed for the month you are viewing?

moderated File uploaded dates incorrect #bug

Andy Wedge
 

Hi,

it seems the majority of my files are showing an uploaded date of 7-Feb (2020) when they were actually uploaded in 2019. I'm wondering if it had something to so with a #changelog entry from 12-Jan:

  • CHANGE: Display the updated date in the 'Uploaded' column in the files section.
Many of these files won't have been updated since they were created (uploaded) in Groups.io so there would be no updated value to display. In which case I think the creation date should be used.

moderated After deleting member, that member can't request re-subscription (gets "That email addr already registered") #bug

Jim Avera
 

1.  Member is deleted by owner using the web interface.
2.  The former member goes to the group home page and clicks "Apply for membership in this group"
3.  Upon entering their email address and clicking "Confirm Email Address", they get an error:

That email address is already registered. To use it, Log In.

If they click the "Log In" link they are prompted for a password, then logged in but have "no subscriptions".

I've just pushed a fix for an encoding bug in the Organizer line of ICS files. That was causing the files to error out of G-cal. I don't have access to Confluence, so I can't test that. Please let me know if this fixes the issue.

Thanks,

moderated Include owner emails and notifications in moderators' email delivery history #suggestion

 

This morning I wanted to check whether one of my mods received notification that someone had joined the group, so naturally, I checked their email delivery history, only to discover that these notifications, even though they are emails delivered, are not logged as such. I think they should be.

ISSUE: Subscriptions from Gio calendars from both G-cal and Confluence have suddenly stopped working for some of our lists and the events have disappeared from people's calendars.  

TIMING: The reports of failures from community members started coming in shourtly after the Jan 31 update. https://groups.io/g/updates/message/118 

DEBUGGING INFO:
- These were all existing subscriptions that have been syncing correctly for more than a year.  I have verified that the meetings still exist on the Gio calendar and are unchanged.

- Attempts to remove the old subscriptions and resubscribe using the link generated by Gio have not worked.  Confluence produces the error "Specified calendar does not seem like iCalendar." when the link produced by Gio is pasted into the subscription url.

- Subscription  attempts from newly created Gio calendars produce the same error.

- I found a link describing the error, in the context of a Confluence subscription to a G-cal. I don't have the necessarry perms to attempt the debugging suggested. -

moderated Unsubscribing a Member via Membership List #suggestion

Leeni
 

Right now when you unsubscribe a member using the membership list and after you click on remove, you get a verifying pop up asking you if you want to unsub that member. Would it be possible if the member's user name or email can be added to that verification pop up so you know you are removing the correct member from the group. Thanks Leeni

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • CHANGE: Previously, we would force a digest to be created at 10:30pm Pacific Time nightly, if one had not been generated in the previous 6 hours and messages had been sent to the group since the last digest. Now, we force a digest to be created at 6AM local time for each subscriber, based on their timezone, if a digest had not been generated in the previous 6 hours and messages had been sent to the group since the last digest.
  • CHANGE: When creating a new group or changing the name of an existing group, change the error message when the group name is already taken to That address is not available..
  • CHANGE: Hardcode some IP addresses associated with chinamobile.com because reverse DNS lookups on them fail randomly.
  • BUGFIX: The command to update whether a topic was locked/moderated/etc in the search index was failing because the syntax changed between Elasticsearch versions. Fixed the command and re-indexed the message archive.
  • BUGFIX: When joining a new group, the membership parameters could not be modified from that page.
  • INTERNAL: Upgraded to Go 1.14 compiler.
  • NEW: Database columns now have a Default Hidden checkbox.
  • NEW: Database tables now have ID Default Hidden and Updated Default Hidden checkboxes.
  • API: Added default_hidden field to the Database Column object.
  • API: Added id_default_hidden and updated_default_hidden fields to the Database Table object.
  • BUGFIX: Wrong logo used for Google Drive.
  • API: Removed the invalid posterid error from /searcharchives to allow people to search for messages from people who are no longer members of the group.
  • API: Added body field to message_search_result object.
  • NEW: Member Directory Search.
  • API: Added /searchmemberdirectory endpoint.
  • BUGFIX: When deleting attachments to make space, we were not taking into account space used by files and photos, so we ended up deleting fewer attachments than we should have.
  • BUGFIX: Fixed pagination when searching on members.
  • SYSADMIN: Added an additional hot standby instance of the main database server.
  • CHANGE: In the UI, changed hash tags to hashtags for consistency.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Mark
