Hi, please let us know how we can improve Groups.

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. No one can join my group because every correct CAPTCHA code is "wrong" according to Yahoo. Why is your company such a trainwreck?

  2. In topic view stop the screen from jumping back to the top on its own

    When scrolling through message summaries in topic view the screen continually jumps back to close to the top of the messages (usually 2nd or 3rd down) on its own, making it close to impossible to read the older summaries beyond the first couple of pages regardless of how many pages you are into it. Usually no new topics have been added.

  3. There is always error "Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content" when try to join yahoo groups

    There is always error "Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content" when try to join yahoo groups

    Even when I enter always changing long Captcha right for several times.

    Please create easiness in joining yahoo groups. You can start by delete or eliminate the Captcha requirement when joining a group. And make it automatic & simple (like in Google group) if we want to join yahoo groups.

    Thank you very much.

  5. Pls fix your system so spanish accents and symbols are shown the way they are supposed to be shown

    Spanish groups (achaya) show funny symbols instead of accents and other spanish symbols, makes the email difficult to read

  6. button is missing for adding a new email address

    Member cannot change his email address because the button is missing. You can click on "Membership", then "Edit Membership", then the pencil icon for email address changes, and there is no button to add a new address.

  7. I would like Yahoo to provide a decent service.

    When I sign in to my group & click on "photos", why does it take about 5 minutes to come back to a screen telling me about recent group activities, where (I must admit) clicking again on "photos" takes me straight to our photos?
    I would prefer it if clicking on "photos" the 1st time took me straight to our photos.

  8. Allow a way to unsubscribe to a scam group...or any group for that matter. I see no place to unsubscribe...!

    Allow a way to unsubscribe to a scam group...or any group for that matter. I see no place to unsubscribe...! It should be within the EDIT settings.

  10. Bring back the missing "add new email" link in Yahoo Groups Membership Settings

    One of my group's members needs to change his personal email address in the Yahoo Group I created and moderate, but the "add new email" link no longer appears when he clicks his edit Identity Settings link in his membership profile. I just checked, and I also can no longer see that link. What's happened to it, and how do people change old obsolete email address to their new current ones?

  11. Delays in loading and posting times

    There is a common theme in this help section on delays. This is a major problem within this communication platform. I will be suggesting to our group that we move to another platform if the yahoo engineers cannot work this out. This is absolutely ridiculous. There is a reason Yahoo is falling behind in the social media market.

  12. NEO Format Still Unusable...

    In the first place, as of this writing, my groups are totally dysfunctional -- I cannot even post messages to my members.

    Beyond that:

    1. If you have a lot of photos or photo folders, those at the end of the queue still take forever to load. Nor is it my computer (a modern Dell with Win7 on it).

    2. The situation is even worse with membership (if there are several thousand members), though this is ameliorated somewhat by being able now to search for a specific member. Classic had an alphabet board which allowed owners or moderators to bring…

  14. "Start a New Topic" results in "Oops, not authorized".

    When a user is not already Signed in to Yahoo but tries to click on "Start a New Topic" from within an email they received, the result is a screen saying, "Oops, not authorized". What should happen is they should be presented with the Sign in screen, just as what happens when they click on an attached photo.

  15. Unable to upload files

    When I try to upload files to the Files section of the groups, I get a purple bar that reads, "An error occurred when trying to upload this content." The files are not too large, and there's plenty of space on the groups. This time I waited 24 hours before trying again, but the problem is still there. I have tried using IE, Firefox and Chrome with the same results. I have had others try in our group and they get the same problem.

  16. unable to upload files as of Nov. 28, 2016

    Is there anyone monitoring these posts? A number of users have posted they are having the same problem. When can we expect to see the problem resolved?

  17. Give MODERATORS the ability to set default sorting for group

    You claim to have fixed the complaint that the files all default to date order -- but you did it in a very obscure way that no one will be aware of, and only for individual members.

    First, as the moderator of a 700+ member group, I need the ability to set the default sort order for files. I am not going to go through all 700+ membership records to do this.

    Second, please put a default sort option, right in the "Action" pulldown window where the sort option appears!

  18. Load faster

    Yahoo groups frequently gets hung up on "fetching sponsored content." I don't mind seeing ads in the groups, it's a small price to pay for the service, unless I have to wait a minute while some clunky ad that takes up a lot of time loads on my computer.
    You people don't seem to understand that not everyone has the lightning fast service that is enjoyed in large metropolitan areas or wherever your marketing and product development people reside.

  19. Restore delete function to database

    Use groups for weekly golf group signup. (Desert Eagles at Pebble Creek). Over last few days have lost ability to delete rows from database. Cannot not delete records of those who signed up and now cannot play. Use same tables changing dates into future. Usually can delete those from current week to prep for future weeks. Not now.
    Help!!
