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, due dates, late fees, etc.) Financial tools (accounting tools, vendor payments, etc.) Document storage (bulk uploading/downloading of files, data retention policies, etc.) Anonymous violation tracking 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.
Send blast voicemails
Provide the ability to send information to registered members via a blast voicemail rather than sending a blast email or text message. ORIGINAL POST: I was wondering if there any plans to add a ringless voicemail drop feature or possibly a voice broadcast feature? Some of our owners in our HOA don't use cell phones or email, so snail mail (which is costly) and regular phone calls (which is very time-consuming) are the only way to communicate with these members. Also, many of our members' texts and emails have spam blocks, so our communication does not reach them.
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.
Option to exclude certain documents from What's Happening emails
Like the "Calendar" page type, we would like to also see the option to exclude certain documents from the What's Happening emails. Some repositories we want to include, some we don't.
Allow all to see answers to prompted questions
Can we please allow everyone to see answers to all questions asked when RSVPing to an event. Such as who's coming, or what food are you bringing to pot luck. As it's set up now only administrators can see that information. Also if you add another name such as spouse or friend it doesn't count for them in the total. Please help us with this. Thanks.
Allow admins to display alternate email addresses on leadership pages
Currently, admins can't change the emails of members due to security concerns. While members can change their own email address, and a feature is being added that will allow admins to request users to update certain parts of their profile, if a user is not technically savvy or won't do it, leadership/board member pages can't be displayed with proper email addresses. Provide the ability for an administrator to select to display an alternative email address on those leadership pages (e.g., [email protected] ).
Custom import notification email
Allow admins to customize the text included in the email sent out to members after they've been imported into a website. A screenshot of the current verbiage is included below.
