US Groups

This forum is for you to make product suggestions and provide thoughtful feedback. We’re always trying to improve our products and we can use the most popular feedback to make a positive change!

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.

If you have a valid Yahoo ID and password, follow these steps if you would like to remove your posts, comments, votes, and/or profile from the Yahoo product feedback forum.

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. How do I get the older version back? This was supposed to be a trial! I hate the mail and no longer have my calendar and contacts.

    How do we get the old mail back? This was supposed to be a trial but I hate it and prefer the older version. Where are my contacts and calendar? If it doesnt improve I will got to gmail or hotmail instead.

  2. Give us back a way to see whose message we are about to read

    We used to be able to see the sender-adress before reading anything, but now we have to scroll all the way to the bottom, past all pointless quote if the sender doesn't bother to sign his/her post

  3. give us a way to find (new) groups to join

    with filters for language, topic, and adult. "search groups" is useless if all it "finds" are messages in groups we already are members of

  5. Paragraphs in Calendar Notices

    Calendar Notices don't respect line breaks or paragraph breaks in the "Note" section. The result can be hard to read and counter-productive.

    Prior to the current calendar style, the "Note" section of a Calendar Notice email displayed paragraph breaks as they were typed into the Calendar Event. Please bring back this feature, or at least support the use of simple HTML tags such as <br> and <p>.

  6. Folder display in order of usage

    Wonder if Yahoo can provide me with an option to display Folders in order of my email stowage activity, rather than alphabetical order.

    Many of us, over years, might have created dozens of folders to manage storage of emails. Most of the time, the 'active' folders tend to be of the order of 10%. If these folders show up on top, it makes the job of moving emails easier.

  8. You can improve Groups by putting things back to the way they were and STOP messing with things that are working without problems.

  10. How about improving this forum by allowing us to vote AGAINST an idea?

    I'm completely serious.

    Too often we see a "new feature" request posted by some noob who has no idea how Groups function.

    It's great that we can vote for good ideas (not that Yahoo really pays much attention to what users want), but we also need to be able to vote AGAINST bad ideas.

    This would give Yahoo a much better understanding of which ideas the community actually supports and which ideas have a small group of avid supporters but are opposed by far more people.

  13. please give the option of a weekly digest

    please give the option of a weekly digest, daily digest is way too **** many & the only other options are special notices only or no email. Which is fine for some of my groups, but there are others that I do want notices just not a notice every day, i don't get to my email all that much and so it sucks when i do and there a 50 messages just from one group. seriously. Also I want to complain about you calling a suggestion completed and closing the voting when you've done nothing to address the problem. I…

  14. Use pop-up div to view messages

    When viewing messages on the groups site: Every time you click on a message to read it, then go back to the message list, the list scrolls to the top. Then you have to scroll and reload all the messages to find your place. This is a big problem for active groups.

    This is such an easy problem to fix. Just open a pop-up div to view messages. Then when you close it the original message list remains intact.

  18. Expand threads fully - preference setting, or just do it by default

    Reading threads in Yahoo groups is just hard work. Every time I look at one, I have to expand it, in about three stages, to make it look like a normal forum thread, before I can read it.

    Just expand the whole thng, like in a forum. If you really must have this collapsed view as an option, make it a user setting (Gear icon), so we have the choice.

    The way things work at the moment is just exhausting. It puts me off coming here to read anything.

  19. conversations archive request

    Sort of a "catch up" option, where a owner or a mod can send a request to the list and trigger a command where they then get all the posts to the list since the list began, or specify a message number to start from.....messages come in then at either 1 at a time, or in a compressed archive in .eml or txt format.

  20. Go back to having thumbnails of links to youtube videos in emails

    Or even better, allow members to watch youtube videos while in the messages archive without going back and forth to Youtube
