I agree with the workaround but there are a large number that do not want that for one reason or another. I think there is no real choice at this point.

So far, there has been no explanation as to why the suggested workaround is unacceptable.

That is exactly how I do it with this and other high traffic groups. I use Outlook as part of Office365 subscription. One of the best deals around for a paid service.

It seems for those that use digest that the switch to groups.io was a mistake. For everyone else it is a good choice. I guess the rest need either not use digest, accept the need to go to the web, or just give up. One possibility would be a double copy of replies by Dave.

A workaround has already been suggested: switch from digest to individual messages, and configure your email client to route DXLab messages to a dedicated folder where they can be reviewed as quickly as in a digest.

Hi Dave,

I think I understand but my largest (so far) new SQL Filter is not very large:

<NEEDFILTER> and <MODEFILTER> and  (TAGS NOT like '*SKC*' or TAGS like '*+N*')

DX wise, all I care about are CW & RTTY (not digital) all-time and by band.

I've set the mode filter button to just CW & RTTY.  If I just wanted to track my all mode (N Korea) and CW (Timor-Leste & Macquarie) needs I could use just this - DXCCID in ('153','344','511')

The "TAGS NOT..." filters out all SKCC members except for +Ns needed for award.

I've tested and it seems to be working right.

No problem here - the replies from Dave are shown.

But you have to set the properties for the Emails not the HTML - change to Text and the replies are included (but not "marked" as in yahoo with <<< before the lines. Easy workaround to avoid the missing replies.

There are two common causes for DxLab Applications not communicating
with each other. 1) Some applications are being started with "Run as
Administrator" (navigate to the directory, right click on the .exe
file, select the "compatibility" tab and make sure "Run this program
as an administrator" is *NOT* checked). 2) failing to set the
application as "Safe" in Windows Firewall (Windows Settings -> Network
& Internet -> Allow an app through firewall) - typically one will have
each of the DXLab Suite applications marked to allow on "Private"
networks (unless you are using public WiFi).

Hi Dave,

I have to admit defeat. The only thing left to disable is the OS itself. All the other DXLabs apps load perfectly. With WW, the light goes blue/turkoise and then back to red as soon as the main window appears. Are there any debug versions I could run?

Had a major crash here and had to rebuild the ham computer.  All files were backed up, so didn't lose anything.  And reinstalling DXLab, restoring a backup of my "WorkSpace" file, things looked and acted fine - until.....

 

I can upload new Qs to LoTW.  But when I do a "Sync LoTW QSLs" I get a window with "Unable to download from LoTW: download failure".   There is no error file (that I can find).  I do have new confirmations in LoTW waiting.

Short version of request:
Is there a way to make an SQL statement that would do the same thing as the
Need button in Spot Collector?

Explanation why:
In SpotCollector, sometimes I would like to be able to show spots only for
needed "Awards" per my settings on DXKeeper's Config/Awards window without
showing callsigns that are on my Special Callsigns list as Tag info and
"Leaderboard."

For years I've been using the TAG and Leaderboard features as a database for
various clubs I am a member of.

I believe I asked this question once before and was told it was not
possible. However if I can use an SQL expression that equals the "Need"
button, I can add a Tag exclusion to it.
Try the following - it should be close to the "Need" button, but
exclude entries that are "Needed" only for Leaderboard...
