  1. Link for event location address does not take me to a map

    I entered an address in the location field for an event. When finished it creates a link (blue underlined), but doesn't go to a map. It goes to a search page with many different map websites... i.e. Map Quest, Google Maps, Yahoo Maps, etc. Clicking on the address should take you to a Yahoo map on the entered address.

  4. Please trouble shoot defective Events calendar

    Our Events calendar has been faulty for a month now. As moderator, I inputted an event reminder to recur every 3rd of the month...nothing posted on June 3..nothing on July 3--PLEASE look over so that August 3 will be posted...until November 3, on a monthly basis. Our other events (created to recur yearly) are being posted well. Wonder what the problem could be and anxiously look forward to receiving your prompt feedback with solutions! Thank you!

  5. I'm a member but I can't get into my group! ain't MY fault, YAHOO! you don't give me any ways to get around the problem...

    if a person is a member of a group, but for some reason yahoo is shutting them out, Yahoo needs to provide SOME WAY to contact yahoo (I contacted my group, but it's not THEIR problem, it's a YAHOO problem!) You need a 'contact us' button, because you need to analyze the problem on YOUR end so I can fix it! YOU NEED EITHER A 'CONTACT US' button or a live chat.

  8. Poor Editor & Reminders on Events

    The Editor is very primitive. Cant use rich text nor just get simple line breaks to work!
    My group receives 2 reminders, once 2 days before (as I desire to have), and another within 5 minutes of that. I tried various tricks but can not get rid of the second reminder. Very annoying.
    How does Ms. CEO expect this to be a competitive tool? Amazing. I will be quitting this group and using Google or another provider very soon, if I dont see this improve by next fall Plenty of time

  9. Events calendar removes formatting

    When I enter text into the events calendar, I include CR/LF and start a new sentance on a new line. However the formatting is removed when Reminders are sent out, so it all appears as one continuous line, making it hard to read. Could the formatting of the event in the calendar be retained when sent out as a reminder please?

  13. Fix the calendar times. Notices are sending wrong time. GMT screwing it up.

    Events that are scheduled for 8-9 pm EDST are going out across the nation with times ranging from 4-5 am to 9-10 pm.
    This is really bad for our on line webinars and needs immediate attention.

  14. Events button/link not accessible on Android phone.

    The link to get to the events calendar simply does not exist in the android app. I'm owner/moderator of an active group and can't even GO to the calendar, let alone add things. You're killing my group with all this incompetence!

  17. Make the unsubscribe option independent of the mderator

    Once a group has been taken over by spammers there appears to be no way out of the group.

  18. Meeting time came in reminder as Greenwich mean time

    Please do not change the time of an event (meeting) to Greenwich mean time! My calendar has the correct time, why did it change in the meeting reminder message?

  19. Be able to select text in List View

    It would be really helpful if we could list multiple months in List view, and then select and copy the text for use in emails or in other SignUP apps, like Sign Up Genius and Jooners.

  20. Ability to export calendar feed to a website widget

    Specifically we'd like to have events from the Yahoo Groups calendar appear on our WordPress site using a widget called Upcoming Events (or if you can suggest a compatible widget). It seems to be able to accept an iCalendar feed URL, but I can't figure out how to get that information from Yahoo. Can you make the feed available and easy to find in the events section?
