There is currently no way to do this.

The features listed on the Pricing page are just topics, several of which are not self-explanatory, especially for new users thinking about creating a group.

Suggest that each feature have a link / pop up / tool tip that displays an explanation of the feature, benefits, why you would want that feature, etc...


Feature Request- 'Your Groups' menu #suggestion

Hi Gang

With about 20 groups and another dozen on the horizon, it's time this menu got some admin ability to customise the priority/ importance/ reluctance quotient and order of groups displayed.
Examples:
1- dont want 'file groups' mixed in with social
2- dont want near dead groups high in list
3- want major interests and high volume ones at top
4- owner/ mod privileges given priority
 etc.

Thanks

Absolutely Michael
This would (perhaps) cut down on clutter AND give more precise information.
Unfortunately some groups that haven't joined the 21st C yet persist in 'non attachment' mode as a form of security for the benefit of members.
I'll address that elsewhere tho,

Donald,

Can Mbox files be opened and sorted by groups somehow, or just extract
group 1 files, then group 2, and so on?
With Thunderbird I'm sure I could filter or sort them by the To: address or the group subject tag. And then copy or move them into other folders group by group.

With other mbox readers that might depend on its capabilities; but I think it is likely that any full email client application (OE, Forte, and others) could do this as well.

Gerald,

... it would be nice if there were a group specific option to do the
export. As an alternate solution, the messages could be split out by
group in the full account download.
I agree with both solutions.

The first because I was surprised that the button directly launched the export -- I was expecting to see at least a confirmation page, but a page with checkboxes to select the primary group(s) and subgroup(s) would be even better.

I suspect that others may have been surprised as well, leading to more exports than were actually intended and downloaded.

Have a good weekend everybody.

I suspect you're not getting much "love" for this because the Facebook integration isn't used all that much. But if I understand correctly, all it does is repost things from Facebook to the group as a new message.

It's also my understanding that all embedded images are rescaled to 640px in the long dimension. Image attachments can be rescaled using group settings (Admin->Settings->Max Size in Email).

What you're showing looks like it was cropped, not rescaled. Does the image continue to the right (and down) but you couldn't include it all in one screenshot? I also don't know what you mean by "images posted to or from a link."

Anyway, I suggest you check the same message online and report back what you find. If it's still too big, try playing with the existing photo settings and see if that remedies your problem. I personally have my group set up so all photos are rescaled to 1024px. This should be more than adequate for viewing online...or in email.

Hope this helps,
Bruce

P.S. Those who have a real need to share print-quality images can always upload their files to cloud storage and post a link instead.

I had to change my preferences to see 100 responses per page to get the email to go out correctly. While I can use that workaround, it's not going to be clear to my moderators or members that they will have to make the same adjustment. They just want to be served.

Is it possible to change the images size on the Facebook integration?

As it is now, I often find that images posted or from a link are huge. Example: this morning someone from my local astronomy club posted a link to an article on our group's facebook page. The article featured a photo of a young woman. When I opened the email from our group via the integration, all I could see was her eye because the image is so large (see attached image)!

Also because the image is so large and the font so small, the text posted is almost invisible.

Is it just me or does the Facebook integration need smaller images and a bigger font for text?

These could be set as group level defaults (notification box is automatically checked or not checked), with the user having the option to override when the upload occurs.

Chris,

 

 

A Notification about a File upload is available as an option to whoever uploads the file; I don't think there is a Moderator - level option to force a notification, though.

 

Exactly. Example: Files are uploaded by whoever, but unless the notification is checked no one gets the message. That´s not always problem-free.

There appears to be no corresponding option available for notification of Photo uploads.

 

Photo uploading without notification can be even more inconvenient.


If you are suggesting a Owner / Moderator settable "forced" notification than I think I would probably agree with you.

 

Yes, that´s what I mean.
