Design the "Resident Directory" page to be printer-friendly.
I totally support this feature and wanted to add my vote to allow members to be able to download a .pdf of the Resident Directory from the website, and then print at their option. Soon I hope!
While Meredith's suggestion will work, it requires our office staff to continually create new PDF files as resident turnover in a large community such as ours is frequent. If residents could print a PDF file that was created from the current list of members at any given point in time, it would be ideal.

@Chuck Dunn: You can currently set this up on your website by going to the "Members" section and saving your directory as a PDF file. From there, you can take that file and upload it to the website for members to view, download, and print. If you'd like to step-by-step instructions for how to do this, I would recommend reaching out to our customer success team for further assistance.
There could be a check box at each name to select which members and the groups could be listed by group name at the beginning or the end of the names list, again with a check box.
This is our association's new "most wanted" feature for the website. Directory printing is stupid expensive and not everyone even wants one, so it's a time and money suck for us. The option for people to print their own clean pdf directory would be awesome. Even better if it autopopulated the association name/logo to the top/front of the directory so it's a discrete item for printing and not just a random listing of names. Thanks!
Agreed. Please make Resident Directory downloadable in PDF format for printing.
yes, great idea. PDF version in a nice clean format. Name, various phone numbers, address, emails, etc. Ideally organized in alphabetical order as of a point in time. It would also be good if it somehow footnoted board members and maybe even listed property management and any other key contacts somewhere in the file.
There is going to be a lot of printing : Resident changeover is high.
Good Idea. We did this manually on our legacy website which was time-consuming to update. We also gave homeowners the right top to opt out of being listed in the printable directory list. If this idea moves forward at HOA Express it would be nice to allow members to opt out on the members directory page or somewhere else.
@Kim Wilcox: Members can currently select to hide their account from displaying on a "Resident Directory" page. They would be able to do this by visiting their "Account settings." I've provided a screenshot below of where this option is.
If we implement this feature, we would take into account these member privacy settings and not include them on the printed directory.
@Meredith Owens: Why should a member be allowed to hide their account from the members?
@Kenneth Nordin: Everyone has a right to privacy and we're committed to ensuring that's possible through detailed control over how a person's own information is displayed and shared. In recognition of the importance of privacy, many countries have also established legal requirements for these types of privacy settings.
Yes. PDF in nicely formatted look/feel including any photos that members had included in online directory.
