    Just what I was looking for to send to a member!  Thank you.

    This is a great help. It would be more helpful if emails were separated by commas (,) instead of semi-colons (;). My email program won't recognize semi-colons as separating emails, so I end up having to paste into a word doc, and then find/replace to convert the list.

    Are others facing the same issue?

    Can this be changed?

    Thanks so much,

    Otoño

    The email client on my Imac won't recognize the semi-colons as well. This is the error message it returns every time I try to send an email to my whole chapter : “johnsmith@comcast.net; janesmith@fgmail.com;” does not appear to be a valid email address. Verify the address and try again."

    Pasting and the replacing them with commas to convert the whole list seems a pretty smart idea, although it is time consuming.

    Any advice?

    Thanks,

    You could quickly load it in a text editor such as Text Wrangler and search and replace the semicolons with commas. It would be really fast.

    It'd be great if we could just export the membership roster as CSV. For this as well as other uses. I like that we can get the data, but it's difficult to use as is.

    This email list assumes we want to email the entire chapter i.e. a group email. What if I want to email the Leadership team only or maybe just the President. The old website allowed you to select an individual, a group or the entire chapter. I think this could be improved.

    @Noel - great point!  I will definitely pass this along to the business analyst!

    Can a group email list be created for each chapter?  something like chapter.region@BNI.com.  This would be a lot easier to send out emails to the chapter and would assure we are using the most recent list.

    Hi Jeremy,  our Chapter would like to setup a Facebook & LinkedIn page but we'd rather use our chapter email address & not an individual member address.  Is there a webmaster email address that can be used?  Thank you.

    I recommend implementing an email feature on the server.  That way, people can email without having to go through their email client.  There are many times when it's not practical to copy/paste and email with an email client.  The old site could handle this, hopefully this feature will be re-added soon.

    @Darrell - thanks for the feedback.  This is definitely something that is being considered for the future, though not in the planning stages quite yet.  The current system is sending out over 100,000 messages daily with the automated emails and this type of function that exists for the regional and national teams!  One of the things to consider is that with 200,000+ users in this system it will require a much more dedicated and powerful mail server if this was to be implemented.  Either way, I will reinforce this idea to the project manager and tech team for additional consideration in a future update!  Hope this helps!

    I receive messages from other chapter members all the time through the BNI website

    rather than their personal email address, but now that I finally found that feature, my message will not go because it's missing a 'valid user'?  What does that mean and how do I fix it?
