Recently we spent some time giving the MemberListView plugin for Umbraco the love it deserves to bring it back up to compatibility with Umbraco v7.15, and took the opportunity to extend it's feature set with the help of a client - Brand Toolbox who requested the ability to export members in Excel format.
In the process, we gave MemberListView a new look and expanded the capability of filtering and exporting significantly. And on top of that, it now supports SensitiveData, blocking users without the permission from exporting members or seeing properties marked as sensitive, in line with current Umbraco GDPR support.
Filtering in Umbraco now supports Member Groups in addition toMember Types out of the box; and while some coding is still required to implement additional filters, this has been made a little simpler.
In addition, if there is only one Member Type defined, we didn’t see any sense in displaying a filter for it, so it’s hidden by default unless you add additional Member Types.
Member Export has been made a first-class citizen, coming out from the shadows of the Filtering button and sports a new dialog offering a lot more control over which properties are exported, and includes the capability to export to Excel or CSV.
Export supports the filter applied to the ListView as well, so you only get the members you are searching for.
Properties can be selected all at once or individually, and the selection is remembered for each export so you don’t have to re-select the properties if you change the filter.
We’ve also locked down Export to users with access to Sensitive Data, in keeping with the single-member export already available out of the box with Umbraco 7.
As part of the update for Umbraco 7.15, we’ve refreshed the user interface making it look more seamlessly Umbraco with the layout. All of the old functions are there - Unlock and Approve, Suspend and Delete. Just select the records you wish to update and away you go.
Now that we’ve got this update out of the way, we’re investigating building a version for Umbraco 8 with Infinity Editing and other improvements. We don’t have a solid timeline as yet, but are aiming to have something out in the next couple of weeks.

In today's competitive landscape, businesses need to prioritise the needs and expectations of their users to deliver delightful experiences. This blog post explores the significance of UX, its benefits, and highlights some of the best practices to ensure exceptional user experiences.
