We have been with guildportal for 8 months now. And our largest complaint and the reason we may consider leaving (though I really would prefer not to) is the raid signups system.  I am requesting feedback on this and I would like to push to make this a change on the site as I am sure it will benefit most members of guildportal.

1. Have a running count of how many people have signed up for the event.

2. Show the breakdown of classes that have signed up. Ex:
Rogues - 7, Hunters -5, Priests -2 etc....

3. Allow admins of the site to designate the amont of each class needed/ideal for the raid .  For example: Define the need for 4 warlock. and once the 4 warlock spots are filled then all other warlocks go to the "alt" list where they are on standby if the raid fills up.

I think that all the information is already available in guildportal to establish this system.  When a person creates a character they generally assign a class to their character.  So when a person sign-up just have the class pulled and then populate a table.

This functionality is imperative to help larger guilds that do 20/40 man raids to easily run their raid events. 

Our game is World of Warcraft
Our site is: http://mystic-order.guildportal.com

Please post your feedback so we can help get some ideas implemented for the betterment of the entire site.

Thank You

I would also like to see the ability for Admins or event leaders to remove people from the list. If someone leaves the guild and has signed up a month in advance for events, there is no way of removing them save for canceling and reposting the event (unless I'm missing something.)

Nugpoo, all very good, (and much needed imho), raid sign-up feature enhancement suggestions.

Two other things I'd like to see regarding raid sign-ups has to do with Guild Portal Alliances.  Currently, our members show in chronological order and our alliance members show up (on our calendar events) in alphabetical.  This becomes problematic when we are overbooked.  We would prefer a chronological order for all sign-ups irrespective of guild - or at least a user defined toggle.

In addition to class caps, I believe there should be a raid cap as well.  Anyone signing up after the limit is reached would be considered 'standby'.

We have had all of these same issues and I sent in a request quite some time ago to see this feature added for raid sign ups. As a larger guild, it becomes quite difficult to look at the names (which in one line, name after name is messy to say the least) and remember every toons class. Would be an easy fix to allow for a "chart" type style to show classes needed, classes filled, etc. Would certainly make preparing for a raid much easier. When I have to report to Guild Leader about sign ups, certainly makes my life a lot more difficult sitting and actually counting the number of members signed up, who the alternates would be once raid is full, and then sitting and manually writing down what classes they are, what we still need, etc. Would love for guildportal to come through on this one I also posted a response in the Feature section of these forums under calendar revamp.

Grassroots effort here peeps... if there is any way to assist in the implementation or further define what is needed, ask away.

Sign if this makes sense to you.

I strated this post because I too had put in requests for these modifications with no reponse.

These features will go a LONG way in making the signup section for raids that much more useful.
