Solved Advice on Mass PM

Post by dotDavid on July 23rd 2009, 3:51 am

Hi,

I was reading one of the site reviews and saw that it was a good thing to have all your members in a groups so you could do a mass PM. So I started to do that and later thought, if I got to say 10 000 members, that would mean my team has to place ever member in that group. So I ask, is it worth it? Placing a some what 30 members in a group a day (and you don't know when they are going to register). Is there a faster way? I've seen in other threads that its not possible to automatically place members within a groups upon registration. Should this feature be implemented? Does anyone actually place every single member of their forum in a group?

Thanks.

PS: Sorry if I am not clear.

I started this...I couldn't handle adding 20 users a day and then realize that there are some I missed...

I hope it gets implemented soon! bwi

yea at this time you have to place them in there.
it's easy to do and you mods can do it too.
just open two tabs one for the members list and one for groups.
go through the members copy there name then go to the groups/tab you have open and add them.

do a lil at a time. then when you have new members join just be sure to place them in there. the best way would be to do it right when you opened the forum from start.. i learned that the hard way and had to put like 100 members in. but between me and my staff we knocked it out in a couple days.

so yea thats the only way to do it now.

hope that helps a lil

don't do it in the admin panel. that would take forever. do it by the members list and groups in the navbar.. open two tabs.

there is a suggestions board.. you got my vote Smile
