October Support FAQs

We get a lot of questions asking how to perform certain tasks, so each month we'll try to answer a few of the more commonly asked questions.

How can I spell check my email or website content?

Wild Apricot does not provide its own spell checker, but most browsers will automatically underline or otherwise highlight misspelled words. For some browsers, you may have to turn that option on. If you're using Chrome, you can also add the free Grammarly extension that checks spelling and grammar as you type.

How do I edit an email macro?

You can't edit or modify any of Wild Apricot's macros. You can only insert or remove them in emails or email templates.

How do I remove an event tag?

You can remove a tag for a particular event by going into edit mode and deleting it from the Tag field. If you want to remove the tag completely, so it does not show up on your tag list, you have to go into every event that has this tag assigned and remove it one by one.

How do I share a poll with my members?

Currently, you can share a poll with your members by inserting a link to the poll in an email or on a website page, or by enabling the automatic email announcement option.

Our designers are currently reviewing feedback from clients before deciding on whether to provide the ability to embed the poll into a site page as a gadget. If this option is important to you, you can add your vote to the wishlist feature request.
