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

Ability to ok multiple pending messages at one time?

Our group is fully moderated. Under the old Yahoo groups, we could screen all the pending messages and then after screening we had the ability to approve all of them at one time with one click (I think it was called "approve all messages").

Our group has periodic "closures" for extended holiday weekends and each week to honor our owners' Sabbath. It would be VERY helpful to be able to screen the pending messages off and on during those closure times--and then easily approve all the messages when we reopen the group.

It can be very time consuming to have to approve each and every pending message individually.

    Thanks, Yahoo Groups. This went into effect today on my groups. Go to "Pending Approvals" and look for "Bulk Actions."

    This would be a great enhancement. Not only to approve all at one time, but to also be able to select a group of messages and just approve a selected group.

    "Our group is fully moderated." So are all our groups, and the owner/moderators do 99.95% of the posting, which we do in large batches. We started our Yahoo groups between 2000 and 2005, so we're "old hands" with Yahoo. Since "Neo" last August, it has become such an incredible "pain" to scroll, approve each message one by one, refreshing after every four pending messages (to get back to the order in which we emailed messages to the groups and in the order in which we would like to see them posted, when Yahoo ends up posting approved messages haphazardly anyway...unlike our Google group. Very, very frustrating for us. Google Groups are much more flexible and faster. I would (naively) hope Yahoo would take a cue from Google (or Yahoo "Classic") and bring back that kind of functionality. Thanks.
