Thank you, Maria. Have just tried it and yes, it does indeed look much better. My point definitely remains about hoping it will roll out to the desktop version for people without smartphones.

I would suggest that the Name field be renamed as Title – or Event Title because for a moment I thought it might be the field to enter selected names. Which brings me to another point; is it possible to send an invite only to certain people rather than the whole group?

Finally, I would again suggest changing the name of the Add Event button at the bottom to a simple ‘send’.

If you switch to the #newtestversion #newmobile you can see it on desktop too.

You can switch to it by sending your email to the support @ groups.io email.

There is a very cool feature in the view responses section - which you may enjoy :)

Hi Mark,

 

>When looking at the RSVP function, I'd recommend using the new mobile version, as that's much better.

 

I’m not signed up for the new mobile version. I wasn’t convinced I access the group enough via mobile to be of use in the testing. But I hope you mean the mobile version is only better at the moment and any improvements will be rolled out to the desktop version at some point because one of the people I sent the test invite to made exactly the same comment to me about confusion over the ‘add RSVP’ button and she doesn’t have a smartphone so will never see those improvements.

 

Thanks,

Sue

Actually it's doing it again this morning. I'm getting duplicate messages in my admin group when I post via email. I had to turn "always want messages" back on, because without it, I got none of my messages from the beta and some other groups.

This is very cool and will be super useful I am sure.

Just quickly a couple of weird things I am seeing:

1- When you enter your search term and then click "search" only in this thread - and then press return (or go on mobile) nothing happens because you've moved your cursor out of the search term box.  So - maybe we need a "search" button to activate the search next to the "close" button

2- After i selected search only this thread it didn't do that - it sent me back to messages

3- I am not seeing how it collapses threads... i'll continue testing.

4- If I search the term "slack" I still see my "I'm a novice with slack... " post 2 x

Thanks!

Maria

Which pretty much indicates something's not right from the Groups.io end.  This has never, ever, occurred to me before and I used Outlook regularly for years and use Outlook 2010 frequently enough for testing to know what's coming through my Gmail and Verizon accounts.

Were I a regular e-mail user and this were happening to me during my early days with Groups.io those would be my last days with Groups.io.  This is a very non-trivial issue for e-mail users.

This happens for no other source of e-mail messages in any e-mail client I use and use with my Gmail accounts.

Hi Sue,

When looking at the RSVP function, I'd recommend using the new mobile version, as that's much better.

Cheers,

Hi Mark,

Many thanks. It now takes me back to the home page of the sub group.
A couple of thoughts. Because it took me back to the home page without any confirming message that my response had been noted, I had to go back in to the event to double check it had worked this time.
Also perhaps the button could be renamed to say 'confirm' or 'save' once the response has been selected.
Thank you,
Sue



locked New search options

 

Hi All,

In the new mobile version, there are two new checkboxes for search. First, when viewing a particular thread and you bring up the search dialog, there's a checkbox to search only within the thread you're viewing. Second, in the search results page, there's a checkbox to Collapse Threads. This will return only matching threads. A matching thread is one where either there is a match in the thread subject, or a match in one of the message bodies within that thread. The Collapse Threads checkbox does not show up if you're searching within a thread.

Please let me know what you think and if you see anything weird.

Thanks,
Mark

Thanks, Mark. This whole thing is very weird. As I said, I'd resigned myself to it until I saw Brian's post and then I thought, ok, it's not just me. But then, miraculously, it went away overnight - at least for now.

Is "always want copies" the default when someone creates a new account? If so, I will know to preemptively explain to new members that if they get duplicate emails they have to go in and turn it off. Thanks.


Yes, it defaults to checked for new accounts.

I haven't changed anything with the code, so if you're seeing different behavior this morning, that's not from us.

Brian, I can absolutely believe that using Outlook or another email client to access Gmail would result in extra copies.

Well, in Gmail I'm now receiving triplicates if I post responses from Outlook.  If I post the same responses from Gmail I'm only receiving duplicates.

I also have to say that I'd forgotten what a mess the conversation view is in MS-Outlook.  I guess there's a reason I stopped using e-mail clients in general some years ago.  Even with the advent of IMAP (which is ancient now) I still use the Gmail web interface on any computer I'm on where I want to check personal e-mail.

p.s. I see you're referring to Outlook. Something in gmail has also changed, since I *stopped* receiving the duplicates.

In case anyone doubts the triplicate, here’s the screen shot as an attachment.  Sending this via Outlook to see if I get a triplicate on it in Gmail, but won’t bother posting if I do.  If I get quadruplicate, however . . .

Yep, another triplicate in Gmail and singleton in Outlook from that last reply, too.  I'll stop now, as I'm not bucking for quadruplicate!!

There can be no doubt that there is a bug of some kind.  I should not be seeing different inbox results based on the e-mail access method I'm using.  This has never, ever occurred for any other source.
