As Frances noted, the only way to change a file attribution is to download the file and have the person who owns it re-upload it.

I note that all files that are jpg files did not in fact get transferred from Yahoo. The file name is shown but there is no file. Should this have been expected?
Go to Admin>Settings>Features>Files and see if the "Allow photos in files" box is checked. If it's not, that's why they aren't there. You might be able to get at them but checking the box and saving your changes and then seeing if they actually did transfer, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

By the way, JPG images in the files area will not automatically display as thumbnails or slideshow images. If you click on one, it might display then, but that depends on your browser settings.

Hope this helps,
Bruce

You say that you want to change file attribution. If it is should be your file, you can download it delete the record and upload again. And of course, if you give your members permission, they can do that with theirs.

There is update (paper and pen) and move (scissors).

You can edit the file name and the description. A little odd, but perhaps you can put the name in that way.
Or create folder with the correct owner's name and move them that way.
But you might lose information - better to put in folders with topics.

This is what *should* be transferred:

5. What gets transferred using the Transfer Agent?
 
Groups.io can transfer message archives, properly owned and properly threaded, (without attachments, however), photos, files, links and databases.
Calendar entries are not copied at this time.
Subscribers (members) are also transferred, maintaining their subscription options and ownership of each message and other group content.
Links get transferred to the databases. (You must enable Databases in Admin to see them.)

I just did a quick test.  If it doesn't start with the http prefix, it won't be linkified.  Could be something else though.

Did you contact support?  For little things like this, they sometimes fix them, then show a BUGFIX on the weekly Changelog.

Allene -- There is no Transfer Now page, nor is there an Update button on the status page ("Update Transfer", but not "Update"). So I really don't know what you're looking at.

So let's take this one step at a time.

Go here:  https://groups.io/yahootransfer
Look at bottom right, below View Existing Transfer Status. Do you see a link here with your group name?
 --- If no, you have not started a transfer yet. Go to https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/message/24431 and start over at step 2.1
--- If yes, click the link.
--- On the resulting page, there should be a pink status box at the top. Come back and reply to this message, telling us what it says.

In turn, I thought the member view would automatically default to Pending Approval if you had any subscriptions pending. Perhaps that isn't true on mobile.

I was able to locate the subscribers who are pending. I didn’t realize that after hitting the Members tab the second time, it has a drop down menu that I can choose Pending Approval.

Thanks everyone!!!

Go to https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/message/24431 and start at the top.  Follow the steps carefully and in order.  It will just work.

Ah, that makes more sense.

Boldfacing or underlining that text would have helped it to stand out. As it was I skimmed over it too fast. My apologies.

Samuel,

The last known python script worked on YG until this past August.  Now nothing in the Python scripts are working.  I've been on Github and even communicated with 2 of the script authors.  At this time PGO is the only option now outside of a full transfer by GroupsIO.

FWIW I have just checked "my" group; it does not have subgroups but has a discrepancy of 3 for a total membership of >2200. (Soon to come down a bit when I have a clear out of "red bouncers")

Sorry it is 130 and i am in the hospital with pneumonia and the nurses won't let me sleep.

I know this has been prob. asked and answered many times here by now, but i just flat ass don't feel well enough to search thru the thousands of emails at this point.

I have PAID the upgrade and keep going back to the 'transfer now' page and cannot get anything to go thru.
Anyone else?
How do I get my little list transferred?

Help.
Please and thank you.
A.

Yep, if we can only train people ;-)

Actually this brings up a question... if I have defined a set of signature lines in my groups.io account, does that count as "signing my mails", so that anything I may have quoted above will always be retained? If so, we can certainly recommend that people do this. Get it done once, and no further "training" necessary.

It's not supposed to happen that anyone can be a member of a subgroup without being a member of the primary group.

But I am beyond guessing at this point. I suggest you contact support and ask (support@groups.io). Please report back on what you find out.

If you are in a sub group, you are in the main group. This is by default.

Christos -- This is known as a query string.

What you've provided in your message is as extensive as I've seen, but I'm sure the parameters can vary greatly depending on the destination page.

And is there anyway that defaults for these can be set, or they have to be entered each time? (in which case, bookmarking will take care of that)
Some of them (e.g.: items per page) are established in your account preferences (https://groups.io/account?page=prefs)...others by a sort order selection, start/end record identifiers, etc.

 For example, https://<groupURL>/members?p=joined,pending,,20,2,0,0

I figured out a few of these parameters but not sure on the rest, and what values can be used on them, and I'd like to find out so I can create bookmarks for quick use.
Before I create a bookmark (or paste a link into a message), I usually just remove any query string. But if you want to document them, have at it...the GMF wiki pages are editable by any subscriber. By sequentially clicking on the various column headers and/or manually changing entries you should be able to figure them out.

Bruce
