Create an option to recieve a SINGLE daily or weekly email from Meetup to replace multiple email notifications
Meetup is an incredible tool, but one of the most annoying things about being an active participant is the sheer volume of emails one receives from different groups, new meetups maching your interests, etc.
An idea that would help dramatically reduce the number of emails we have to deal with would be an option to receive a single "Meetup Digest" email daily or weekly, containing any newly added meetups, newly joined members/discussion posts, etc. that users would normally receive individual emails about. This email could be dynamically created for each user based on their group memberships and what email triggers they have selected, and what has happened in each group since the last email was sent. It could also include any new meetup groups matching the user's interests, if they have selected to receive those emails as well.
Having this all in one tidy email to read once a day or week would make it much easier to avoid information overload and actually stay on top of everything going on with the user's group memberships.
We’ve got a dedicated team working on addressing email volume.
I also have to express my displeasure at receiving a barrage of emails when I am a member of only 23 groups.
They organizers sends related items and announcements, and then somehow related subject specific groups are soliciting my interest in their groups.
How and why is that occurring?
I appreciatehaving *****SOME****** suggestions based upon my indicated interests....but do I really need what feels like 40 emails a day from Meetup?
On a related note, this topic came up in February and according to the Response from Admin Meetup personnel, it was to be addressed in February 2012...
Been over a year, so....
Has this issue been addressed? Any resolution? Any communication of that resolution?

I get about 15-20 emails a day. I know I can shut off the notifications, but I still want to know about new events. A daily capsule would be incredibly helpful.
I love hearing about new meetup groups that match my interest, but I end up getting several emails a day, since my tastes are rather eclectic. I saw a few people suggest a daily or weekly digest, which would be the perfect option for me.
I'd much rather do that, then uncheck the option to have new groups suggested to me.
Please keep working on addressing this! I'd love to ONLY receive a daily Meetup email listing each group I'm subscribed to that updates me with new postings in ONLY one email, rather than separate emails from each group I'm subscribed to!
I do not want ANY emails coming to my personal email account.
Whats to progress on updating email volume. I am losing hair over it
Has this been implemented yet? I've edited my preferences to receive one email a day, but I still get multiple emails.
Meetup Management: Any progress on this yet? I and many fellow members would LOVE the option to receive only 1 email digest on a daily or weekly basis. This would include upcoming events for all groups one belongs to. Please advise. Thanks.

Yes! This feature is greatly needed. I have too many emails from so many different groups. So, I try to not subscribe to anything anymore, but then I miss out on the few events that I would have liked to attend. There really needs to be a weekly summary of upcoming events for the week. Is it really that hard to implement after 8 months?

This has been "under review" for 7 months! Honestly, how long is it going to take to implement this feature? Every other site I've ever used has had this option, it cannot be that hard to set up! As many others have said, the volume of emails is absolutely absurd and off-putting. It has caused me to stop using the site entirely on at least one occasion, and I've read of others who have experienced the same frustration. Get on it already
oh too many emails. i received one email for every picture that was posted to the group. this is really annoying and unnecessary. we need a daily digest option asap.
In the meantime too, you can create a new email to only use for meetup. It will be many emails but best part its separate from your personal emails and easily to clean up ie delete the emails every so often. This way managing or sorting thro glue meetup emails is easier, and you can delete the emails in a bunch without worry deleting your other personal emails. I did this as soon as I realized the volume of meetup emails and except for emails that might have nothing to do with the group, I ain't frustrated as they all go to my 'Meetup Email' where I can check them anytime. It works!!
Yes, I just got off the phone with meetup.com and was asking about this. I run a pickup soccer goup with many sessions all week long. Many of the players know the times in any given season, so they don't tend to RSVP to each one. They don't want daily reminders, but would be very happy to see a weekly e-mail (suggest sending it out on Thursday night that covers a summary of all events from Friday to Thursday of the subsequent week).

There are so many emails that most members don't read any of them. Please start and complete this already!! Thx...
Please also add a Web Only option where we reallyreallyreally receive absolutely no emails when we request "no emails" from a group. I selected "no emails" for all my groups. Yet I still get email updates to meetups - even when I didn't RSVP to them. Also I get occasional requests for non-meetup events from meetup organizers. I check Meetup.com often and don't need or want the extra communication. Please enable me to make it stop! Thanks!

Great news about the team working on reducing email. In the interim would it be possible to have meetup refrain from sending out emails encouraging members to sign up for events where the event is already full or the RSVPs have closed .
Please! I'm inclined to delete several of the groups with higher volumes because I can't take it anymore and it's clogging up my inbox. A weekly digest would be ideal.
did anyone meet up after 2011
I completely agree. A solution to this problem could not come too soon!
