  1. Remove the requirement to identify as either male or female during account creation.

    I need software to manage committee calendars, agendas and minutes. I would use your software as it appears to be exactly what I need. However, your requirement to select male or female during account creation means I will have to look elsewhere. I sit on a committee dedicated to creating a welcoming space for people of all genders. Forcing the committee members to identify as either male or female is exactly the kind of problem we are striving to fix. Please reconsider your use of binary genders, and allow each person to identify as they see fit. I would ask…

    • Please fix the ability to remove members.

      It is currently not possible to remove members from the groups or to remove banned members from the banned list. Please fix this as a matter of urgency. Attempts to remove give an error loading content and the member remains on the group.

            Please do not truncate or shorten the subject heading of group messages as it appears on the conversation view. It defeats the purpose of a public message.

            • restricted to public

              When I set up my groups they were classified as custom. I did not choose restricted or private. But now they are all marked as restricted by you not by me. I am unable to change them to public. Is this because I want to moderate who joins my groups? You need to let us have more control over this. Please advise. Thanks.

              • Bring back the option to schedule Files to auto-send to pending members

                When scheduling Files, the option to auto-send a File to a pending member is no longer available. There used to be a scheduling option labelled "Pending Subscriptions".

                And if a group had previously setup Files to be sent to pending member, the Management > Control Panel > Notifications page does show a section for Files that are sent on "Pending Subscriptions" BUT these Files are never sent to people who have pending subscriptions.

                A lot of groups depend on this feature because they require pending members to read and reply to auto-sent Files. And because the Notifications page says that…

                • Cannot delete photos from albums

                  I keep getting an error message 'Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content'.

                  I have tried deleting by accessing the album, clicking the Edit Button and then clicking the down arrow and selecting delete and also by clicking the down arrow in photo stream and selecting Delete. I get the same error each time.
                  Thanks,

                      Provide an option to select the old yahoo groups format. I've quit reading yahoo groups since the "new" version came out. It's a mess.

                      • Would like to be able to pause and go back to previous photo when the photos are in the enlarged view.

                        I believe that when you first introduced the enlarged view for our photos we could pause and also go back to the previous photos but that function seems to have disappeared. It is nice to be able to see the photos in the larger format but they scroll so fast that we don't get time to really enjoy the details of the photos. Can you make that happen for us..thanks

                        • Search exact user ID as typed; don't substitute another format of that ID

                          When searching conversations using a non-broken name format, e.g. "FirstnameLastnameNumber", the reply shows results for "Firstname Lastname Number" (broken into sections). It then says "search instead for 'FirstnameLastnameNumber'" which is what I had actually searched for in the first place!! Give me results for what I typed in and don't presume to substitute another format for what I input.

                            Presently the database fields allow text only. Since our sites are primarily visual and members upload many pictures, we need a field that will allow these graphics to be placed in the chart. Thanks.

                              • I found "customer care" totally unhelpful. No replies to my question in Community. And "contact us" doesn't let me contact an actual person.

                                The "Contact us" icon shows a picture of a woman with a headset, implying that there is an actual person waiting to help us. Instead, there is just a chain of options, none of which addressed my actual issue, which leads to a dead-end with nowhere else to turn for help. I posted on Community but no replies, probably because my issue is rather unusual. I need someone to access my computer remotely to see what the problem is.

                                    Also get no option to Delete in Edit. Members have similar problems since new format. I tried IE, Chrome and Firefox. Get red message "error occurred". Group members also cannot re-order or edit their photos since NEO was introduced. Also they find it very irritating having all photos load on screen when going into Photos. Neo is not popular with those who use my Groups.

                                    • Better headers needed

                                      Yahoogroups should change the mail headers in group-mail distributions, so that recipients can determine the original sender of the mail. This is especially problematic for iPad2 native mail which rips out the descriptive part of the sender and just leaves the group's mail address.

                                        We close each weekend to give moderators a break. Now emails are coming to the owner address after we close. Please change it back so members cannot post until we reopen.

                                          1. A group member (let's call him 'Charlie') sends a message to the group.
                                          2. Another group member (let's call him 'Mick') replies to Charlie's message.
                                          3. Charlie receives Mick's reply.
                                          4. Charlie replies to Mick's message
                                          5. Mick receives Charlie's reply.
                                          6. Whilst the system is working for Charlie and Mick, at no stage does their conversation appear in the Group message list.

                                          Inexplicably, a third party, let's call him Fred, has received the conversation between Charlie and Mick in his e-mail. He adds his contribution, appending the original conversation to the end of his message.

                                          It's only when…
