Yes, I know that there are *ways* to achieve what I'm asking for, but *NONE* of those ways make it easy for the users to contact *ALL* of their club officers with a single email.
In order for a "common" non-officer member of our club to send an email to ALL the club officers they would have to do the following:
- Find the link under my communications, "Club Mass E-mail"
- Scroll through 38 names, looking for a sub-title that indicates that the member might be on the executive committee
- then send 9 individual emails
No one is ever going to do that.
Yes, there are links to the President, VPE and Treasurer, but not our 6 other officers.
For a club officer to send a message to all the club officers, they have to do the following:
- Go into Club Mass E-Mail
- Realize that there is a drop down option to select the officers - it took me about 5 times to realize it was a drop down.
- then send their email.
Neither of these two options are user friendly for anyone. Do they do the job, yes, but neither is intuitive.
All this could be solved with a simple link "Send Msg to All Club Officers" on the members left hand menu.
I not sure why you wouldn't want members to be able to do this and only restrict to the club officers, but if
that is the case, then one can make it a configuration option on whether the functionality is available to all club members or just the officers.
If you wanted to take this a step further -- add "mailing" group functionality. For example, if there are committees set up for special events, it would be nice to be able to have an Alias for the "30th Anniversary Committee" etc.
Wishful thinking for me would be that an option would be there before FTH 1.0 goes away Feb 17th
as this is a functionality
I have to provide by then.
Thank you team for all that you guys do!
This really is an awesome system!
