[resolved] Too limited (5 posts)

    The idea of adding to groups is fantastic. However, this plugin is too limited.

    Instead of putting the Group O-matic boxes on profile fields pages, it would better server BP users (and developer) if Group O-matic had a separate settings screen.

    On this, all existing "rules" shall be listed, can be edited, deleted, and new rules added.

    Also, instead of limiting each rule to a particular field, ideally a rule could have multiple rules within in related by logical operators OR, AND, NOT.

    There is not enough demand to take this plugin to the next level where fields are "chained" together to arrive at a match. Also, hooking into the profile fields form reduces the amount of required code by probably 500%

    As far as more advanced matching, there is a pro version which add more complex matching options.

    I'll check out the pro version.

    But I suspect that this plugin is not popular simply because:
    1. People don't know about it.
    2. It doesn't quite do what people want (business rules). Which is probably also why users aren't delighted and don't spread the word.

    I checked out Pro, and even that doesn't address business rules.

    You are the first person to request (or complain about the lack of) field/rule chaining in the nearly one year since this plugin was first released. I generally only invest my time into functionality that is important to my own projects, or which is requested by many members of the community.

    Advanced business rules would be awesome, but I don't see enough demand for it to be worth the time required to make it happen.
