Add "Pending Subscriptions" and "Upon Reject" to Schedule File
Under Management, in the Notifications tab of the Control panel, clicking on Edit (the pencil icon) for a file brings up the Edit Schedule File dialog. This dialog has all the checkboxes:
Upon joining group
Upon leaving group
Upon being banned from group
Every 2 weeks
Under Files clicking on Edit (the pencil icon) on a text file brings up the Edit text file page; it has a "Schedule files" menu. Clicking on Edit on a non-text file brings up the Edit File dialog; It has a "Schedule options" expander. Both of those places lack the "Pending Subscriptions" and "Upon Reject" checkboxes.
I'm aware that a similar prior request has been Declined, with the Admin comment "We do not plan to make the enhancements you have suggested."
I don't believe that Admin was aware that the "enhancement" has already been (almost completely) implemented - it lacks only the UI checkboxes cited above. Hence I classify this as a "Defect or Bug" item, not an "Enhancement or new feature request".
We’re unable to work on your request.
This is really impossible !
We are supposed by YAHOO RULES to screen pending members and ASK them whether they fit into the description of our groups
for that, we have scheduled automated messages to go out to pending members BEFORE approval.
Now you are telling us this is impossible? ???
But it used to be possible, how come it is impossible now ???
Pending members still do not get the automated mail requesting them to identify themselves to the moderators and their reason for joining!
while Yahoo asks moderators to approve only members who fit the group description !
PLease fix this, our prospective members cannot receive the automatic mail where we ask them to identify themselves to the moderators, while yahoo groups tells the moderators to check who the prospective members are before admitting them. How can we check, if the automated messages cannot reach them ????
We need to send pending members an automatic message, because we need to ask them to identify themselves to the moderators.
This option is not available, members can only receive a message upon being accepted as members
PLEASE FIX THIS
Please bring back the options that we had before Neo for the files section. For those groups requiring an approval before joining, it would help us, as it dis before NEO. Now we have to write each applicant separately.
Moderators are currently having to manually send applicants the files that ought to go out upon pending subscription. Same for rejection. I hope Yahoo's review will result in the restoration of this vital moderator function.
Please include this additional option in the Notifications options. This is really needed and saves time.
Thanks so much,

I agree that this bug needs to be fixed. It makes no sense to omit it in the NEO version.

I agree too : it's a bug. I voted and commented the rejected entry, so ... let's try again

I agree that this is a bug, not an enhancement. The list of ways you can schedule a file should be the same in both places (Management->Notifications and Files->Edit->Schedule Options).
