I would like to be able to search for previously sent emails, text messages, and letters.
Resident/community management software
Our current objective is to create and improve upon the world's greatest community website builder. Over the years, we've had many communities request features that fall under the umbrella of resident or community management software. This is a separate industry from the one our company falls into, although we do see the similarities. There are a number of companies that provide this type of software, and they generally don't compete with website builders. Some examples of features that fall under management software include: Task/project tracking, usually tied to form submissions (maintenance requests, work orders, ARC requests, etc.) Reservation system, usually for amenities Resident billing (assessing fines, tracking payments made outside the website, sending notices of payments due, etc.) Financial tools (accounting tools, vendor payments, etc.) While management software is on our radar, it's not the industry we're currently in. Still, we'll use this post to gather thoughts, ideas, and comments from customers in case we decide to head that direction in the future.
Offer Forwarding Option for Prior Emails
Offer the option to forward previously sent emails to one or more members. Members sometimes miss an important communication from the website. This would offer the availability to re-send it to those people.
Allow administrator to request information update from member
Since you are committed to User control and privacy, while Administrators are concerned about completeness and accuracy, would you consider implementing a method that would allow Administrators to add information update requests to users, where the Administrator ends the proposed update and this sends a link to the user to allow them to view and approve the change/update? The big issue with homeowners is that they lack motivation to update material on their own. This sort of extra push would make it as simple as possible to prod them to do it, by mostly doing it for them.
Export form submission history
Provide the ability to export the content from submitted forms into a spreadsheet. There are a couple of challenges with this to take into consideration. We’ve listed those below: The forms have the ability to change and be updated over time. If the labeling and wording were to change on the form, it could make the export process complex. With the “Custom Form” page type, you have the ability to include an “upload file” form element. Those files couldn't be exported since there isn’t a way to place a file inside of a spreadsheet. Therefore, any uploaded files would be excluded from the export of the form submission.
Color code events on a calendar
Ability to color code different types of events added to a calendar.
Send a copy of form submissions
Provide the individual who submitted a form on the website with a copy.
Include a "reply-to" field on form pages
Allow an email address field on a contact/custom form to be designated as the "reply-to" field. If implemented, this would allow the recipient(s) to reply directly to the email address that the user writes in this particular field.
Indicate preffered mailing address in "Account view"
Indicate which address is the preferred mailing address in the "Account view." Right now, the only way to identify the preferred mailing address is to start to edit the members account.
