  1. Need Moderator Functions

    I moderate a group of non-techie senior citizens who can't manage setting up yahoo IDs, so they join our yahoogroup as email-only users. I need to be able to do the following as a moderator:
    - change a member's email address
    - add or change a display name for a member of the group

  2. Feature: allow "posting" column of groups list to be sortable

    Would be nice to have the member list be sortable by any field (currently one can only sort by "joined"). Sort by first, last, delivery, posting and email are all handy at times.

    Or... support spreadsheet export.


    The new Neo is really not working out very well. But maybe it can be fixed.

  4. Download a whole photos file at once

    One thing that would be useful is if we could download a whole Yahoo Groups photos file in one go, instead of having to do each photo individually.

  5. When pics/images are included in posts.

    Make it possible by 'clicking' somewhere in or near a pic/image, to easily advance to the next pic, instead of having to open a pic, view it, then close it, then go back to the list of pics and opening the next one...etc.

  7. We need more space for motions that are posted via Group polls. Can you please allow more characters than 200? Like maybe 1000?

  8. DATABASES STILL PROBLEMS after revamping

    I appreciate yahoo trying to make the databases usable again

    Indeed there are many good things in the improvements and I appreciate you got us the French accented characters back again.

    However, the format is still difficult to read and use for following reasons:

    1/ column headings do not align with the actual columns as soon as you click on one of the columns to have it ordered. After reordering one column, column headings stay the same at the top but when you scroll down, column widths vary and no longer fit the headings!

    example: I try to sort out…

  9. I miss the old groups.

    I want the old groups back. I hate the way you have changed everything. We should have the option of being able to revert back to the old groups with color.

  11. Please reinstate the ability to search by topic or word (currently only can search by message #)

    Groups used to be able to search by topic or word, now it seems you can only search by message #; no body remembers the message number!

  12. Add moderation setting so postings by all non-members must be approved first

    Please add a moderation setting to allow postings by all non-members of a Yahoo Group to be approved first - We use Yahoo groups for our committee but people who are not committee members need to be able to send a message to us collectively so we accept messages from non-members. Unfortunately we are now receiving a lot of spam that has made it through Yahoo's filters, so it would be really useful to be able to head that off before it reaches everyone's inboxes.

  13. DECLINED! - Allow us to sort LINKS alphabetically; make alphabetical the LINK sort default.

    https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/209451-us-groups/suggestions/6205141-allow-us-to-sort-links-alphabetically-make-alphab#comments

    Take this off of declined. The folders as someone posted in Neo were always sorted by alphabetical order - both the folders and the contents in the folders. Then you changed it back almost a year later to sorting by date only. Sorting by date is not able to be used when you have hundreds of links or files. Each time you locate one, as soon as you open it or change to another one it automatically goes back to being sorted by date! You cannot locate any one link or file when it is sorted by date. The…

  14. Allow us to download archive messages and export more than 1000 members

    I have been running a large listserv on yahoogroups for 11 years. The group is important for a lot of reasons. A lot of the communication can be used as a resource for my colleagues. Therefore the ability to download the archived messages to safe keeping and to create FAQs and other resources is important. Furthermore I have 1725 members and would have piece of mind to be able to occasionally export the list for safe keeping and statistic purposes.

  16. Unable to Search by Topic

    Unable to search by topic or message content. Instead the only thing it appears that you can search by is the message number which is next to useless if you don't know or don't remember which message it was that contained the information you are looking for!

  17. have a second red box to check to prevent you from receiving repeated adds. So you don't have to keep erasing repeated adds everyday- thanks

    have a second red box to check on our emails to block repeated email adds to our inbox. You could simply check the red box to the right to prevent you from receiving adds that appear every day-once and for all.

    thanks dale

  19. 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.

  20. 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
