Inactive Members and Real Last Activity is a suite of tools and enhancements for your IPS Community, designed to help you measure real last activity, notify users based upon real last activity, and ultimately manage inactive members.  

  • Are you looking to re-engage old or inactive members?  
  • Are you looking to automatically clean out inactive members? 
  • Are you looking to overcome the hidden activity of anonymous users?

Inactive Members and Real Last Activity by @Fosters adds three powerful tools into your admin toolkit to help you intelligently manage the activity of your members.

Inactive Members

Inactive Members adds new rule-making capabilities to your Members tab in the ACP which empower you to engage inactive members and attract them back; manage inactive members by automatically moving them to another membergroup or permanently deleting them; and automate the entire setup  in a seamless and constant back-end process.  

Choose the number of inactive days.  Select the action.  Save.  

Other features on Inactive Members include:

  • Write multiple rules such as 30 days, 60 days, and 180 days based on your own community activity and needs
  • Exclude certain membergroups so they stay protected from changes
  • Draft custom email messages using the powerful IPS tag system to customize it to the recipient

Real Last Activity

Real Last Activity adds a new measurement metric to every user profile on the user's actual recorded activity.  This can be used to overcome the activities of users who mark themselves as anonymous and participate in the forums without showing their activity.  

Bulk Mail Filter

A new filter is added to the IPS Bulk Mail feature.  This can be used to sharpen your Bulk Mail targeting to include or exclude anonymous users based upon their real last activity on your community.  For users who want to stay anonymous but who actively visit and participate on your website, you can now target them better with your community newsletters and mailings.

Nice idea however, it would be nice to see an option where you can pick what groups should be excluded from the rules.  Currently I have not found an option to do this.  I have a member group that is not affected by activity requirements but if I enable a rule that removes inactive members, it will remove members that shouldn't be removed.

Works great, we had something like this on IPB 3 minus a few features like moving people back to their last group upon login but the dev said he plans to add this in an update so for us it was worth the purchase (especially since it's just a 1 time buy, no subscription). We use this just to clean out our roster of trials and members who are inactive after 30 days, it's pretty simple to use too.

Response from the author:

Thank you for the great review.  We'll let you know when we're able to add in additional features as requested by the community.

I think this is an AMAZING app! 

I am having difficulty with rules in 4.5, so I am hoping that there will soon be an update.

Thank you for providing this!

This application leaves the tasks of the forum congested. It must be because of the large number of members I have.

Response from the author:

We're sorry you had problems with the tasks.  In the future, we would welcome you to post in the Support Topic as designated in the file description for us to investigate your issue with more details, and we can work on optimizing the queue / task list for large boards.

Unfortunately it doesn't work correctly (at least for me). I set up a rule to move members inactive for 36 months and it moved a member who had only been registered for 2 months (I didn't check further, there may have been more). I reported to the developer on two occasions, but he couldn't/wouldn't fix, he just refunded the price.

Doesn't work on latest version of IPB, useless waste of money.
