Shal, It doesn't sound very robust yet. I wouldn't recommend this to my group members in its current state. Thanks.

J,

The "Like" button could accomplish that, but it requires people to log
in. If there's a way to allow people to "Like" posts from within email
without logging in, that would be great.
It should already work:

"Alternatively, you can reply to a message with either a "+1" or "like"
(no quotes) as the first line of the reply, and that will be counted as
a like (and the message will not be sent to the group)."
Mark, https://groups.io/g/beta/message/2696

IIRC there were some problems with parsing the message causing apparent failures when there were spaces before or after the trigger, or an extra blank line before or other distractions. But in my test group just now I succeeded by Clicking Reply then typing the three keys +1[Enter] at the very top of the message body. I left the quoted material that followed intact.

Another source of failure might be email user interfaces which don't put the In-Reply-To field in the header of a reply.

locked moving messages and/or threads between subgroups and/or main

Jeff Powell <jrpstonecarver@...>
 

Please count me among those that would like to have the ability to move messages and threads between subgroups and main. There was an earlier discussion here: https://groups.io/g/beta/topic/863767 where that was discussed. I just want to add my $0.02 indicating that without the ability to move threads and messages, subgroups aren't all that useful in at least some cases.

I moderate a 1600+ member list on Y!G that we're seriously thinking of moving over here. Subgroups would be useful in some ways, but only if we (the moderators) can fix things when they are sent to the wrong place. And trust me, our user base will get things in the wrong place with some regularity.

Thanks for considering it when time allows!

Well, I'm not sure any more that I understand the process you're trying to describe. If all they have to do is reply with "1", that would be very nice. If, OTOH, they have to delete all prior text, as you said before, that I'll stick with my feeling that it's impractical. I haven't tried any of this out yet myself. I'm just putting in a wishlist feature if it doesn't already exist in practical form.

I'm done here.

You can also click on Reply to Group within the group email and type "+1".  I don't think it can be any easier.  (Of course, it probably won't work for those who still have the default signature "Sent from my iPhone".)

Would you want another link in every email sent out for the possibility of a like?  What alternative did you have in mind?

For me, the nuisance factor of yet another link at the bottom of every group email is enough for me to give up on "like".

It's an interesting feature that I didn't know existed. However, needing to remove everything else makes it very difficult for most email members, especially ones using mobile, probably to the point where I'd call the nuisance factor prohibitive.

Reply with just "like" or "+1" in the body of the post. Everything else must
be deleted, including the quote of the previous message.

locked "Like" a message from within email (without having to log in) #suggestion

 

For the benefit of email subscribers, I'm trying to get group members to cut down on posts with no content besides agreement or thanks. The "Like" button could accomplish that, but it requires people to log in. If there's a way to allow people to "Like" posts from within email without logging in, that would be great.

Thanks but I want to merge lot of message to one threads… repeating the merge action is boring.

OTOH, cancel that request. I don't care about having to set it each time, because the bulk of the posts in our group don't contain attachments anyway So having to set it for those cases is not a bother.

locked Re: Description changed

 

Mark,

Would, or could, the flag be on a group-wide basis? In my group, nobody would ever want search to include attachments. So I'd love to be able to set this once and for all, within my group, as the default for search. It would be cumbersome to have to set it for each individual search.

locked Re: keep history available for members who left #suggestion

 

I'm having a lot of trouble finding apparently correct results in a member activity search after a member leaves the group. A member left yesterday and all that appears in the history is the action of leaving. Also, when I search on a member name (after the member has left), it returns different results from when I search on the email address. The email address also appears to work (in some cases) only if the "@gmail.com" part is left out of the search term. I could go on and on with the seeming anomalies and seemingly incorrect or weird results. I don't even remember them all but can go back in and find details and report them to support as bugs. I'm not sure it's worth the effort. Bottom line, I'm finding the member activity search after a member leaves extremely flakey and unpredictable, and therefore it would really be helpful for this to be facilitated as proposed above by Mark and Shal.

locked Re: Separate Admin Menu options from member menu options #suggestion

 

Mike,

I have my main group and subgroup settings for "members visible" Set to
"subscribers". I need for all members to be able to see the complete
members list for each group/subgroup they are a part of.

Unless I am missing something, there is currently no way for the normal
non mod/owner subscriber to get to/view the members list.
Confirmed in my test group (shalstest@). This appears to be a bug or oversight, and should be reported to support@groups.io so that it gets entered into the issue tracking system.

In the past when that option was set to "Subscribers" non-mods could see a Members item in the left hand column. It produced a table with fewer columns than the version visible to moderators.
