If you need assistance of any kind, please visit our community support forum or find self-paced help on our help site. This forum is not monitored for any support-related issues.

The Yahoo product feedback forum now requires a valid Yahoo ID and password to participate.

You are now required to sign-in using your Yahoo email account in order to provide us with feedback and to submit votes and comments to existing ideas. If you do not have a Yahoo ID or the password to your Yahoo ID, please sign-up for a new account.

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. In "database" if someone deletes their name, the slot is left empty rather than moving the next number up to fill the slot.

    In the database, if #4 drops out, then #5 should move up to the #4 slot, so that there are no missing numbers in the list.

  4. Sort the Files, Links and Photos alphabetically, so members can find things.

    Sort the Files, Links and Photos alphabetically, so members can find things. New members and members who aren't web- or computer-savvy don't find the sort order option under Actions, and constantly ask for help finding things they've been referred to. Even if they figure out how to change the sort to alpha, it keeps changing back. This is the kind of thing that's reduced our active membership to a small fraction of what it was before the Neo-Groups disaster.

  6. Bring the private chat room, with text/cam/audio back the yahoo group experience

    The idea of acebook is still useful but getting old. I love the idea of a yahoo chat room w text/cam/audio - when it was private it was good.

  7. Make "Alphabetical" the default list format for Files section so it won't be so hard to find files for un-savvy members.

    Make "Alphabetical" the default list format for Files section so it won't be so hard to find files for un-savvy members who can't find, or know enough to look for, the alternate sort options under the unhelpfully-named and hard to spot "Actions" menu. This has been a real issue in our group.

  9. Insatisfeita

    Muy descontenta por Grupo Yahoo nada más aceptar invitados que tengan correo Yahoo. De verdad, para nuestro grupo, es una molestia haber que forzar a las personas que tienen correo Hotmail, Gmail, etc a crearen correo Yahoo para que puedan hacer parte del foro de nuestro club. Estamos analizando cambiarnos de foro.

  10. recent update? I don't know what you've changed but my web experience of using groups this morning is horrific: Slow, buggy, AWFUL format

    I have no ideas beyond - USER TESTING!!
    You will totally lose me if the functionality and user experience is not improved.

  12. make default view for databse "slim" - otherwise in default we can't see all the columns.

    make the default view for database "slim". in current default view ("relaxed") we can't see all the columns, and don't realize they are hidden. it should somehow indicate that there is more off screen not viewable in 'relaxed' view.

  15. The world is in desperate need of an app for Yahoo Groups! PLEASE HURRY!

    A user friendly interface that lets you post, view posts (including access to files) and notifies you of updates on the group would be incredibly useful. My school uses the service to post assignments and notices very frequently. The app would certainly make things a lot easier for everyone! Hoping to see some speedy deliverance! :)

  16. Make the invitation to the group visible to everyone, not just members

    Membership is limited, in order to avoid spam.
    But invitations to everyone, the "about" page should be visible to everyone in order to attract new members. Once people see what is available they can apply for membership and be accepted if they meet the requirements. It is important that the existence of the group is visible, for it to be able to grow.

  17. Will you please bring back the ability to search within a single group?

    The old format allowed one to search within a group for keywords. The new format only allows one to either search ALL groups, or by post #. *Please* bring back the old search capability!

  18. New My Yahoo vs deletion of My Groups from e-mail page

    I really like the new "My Yahoo" page -- cleaner layout, very easy to find my groups. navigate to email, etc.

    On any given Group page, I still have the helpful left sidebar listing all my groups. (This was a great innovation -- I participate more often in all my groups!)

    HOWEVER, once I am inside my e-mail account, both "Groups" and "My Yahoo" appear to have been deleted from the top banner task bar. I can find no way on my e-mail page to navigate back to MyYahoo or to my Groups.

    The new MyYahoo page is such a…

  19. Don't ask for people's phone numbers so they can sign up. There is no need for it, it is personal data and unnescessary.

    Sign up details, no need to ask for a phone number. That is none of Yahoo's business. Email address, name and password is all you need.

  20. Get rid of offensive ad on our page

    We are a vegan/animal rights group & there is a "living social" ad featuring pork ribs (otherwise known as dead pig) on our page. It's ludicrous.
