Prorate membership fees when a membership is put on hold.
Prorate membership fees when a membership is put on hold. I am transitioning to making all of my membership fees due on the 1st of the month in order to simplify cash flow, but under the current system, that will get messed up if athletes have to hold their membership for whatever reason.
We will be looking to revisit this function concerning holds in the near future. For now will mark this as ‘Yes – 2017’ so be on the lookout for future updates coming down the pipeline.

Maybe I missed it, but since this was marked a "Yes - 2017", and it's now 2018.. I still don't see the functionality. Is it there somewhere?
Definitely something that should be added to Wodify. This would help out big time.

I have been suggesting this for over a year and it's still not implemented. This is a big one so let's get on it wodify! More improving of current problem and less new ideas would be great. This goes back to 2015... let's fix this issue

Great idea, been crying out for this since we started using the system. All our members are debited on the 1st of each month so any holds cause major issues and now mean we manually refund members the amount due from our bank account.

I love this idea too. But in addition to this, I would love to have a way to charge a "membership hold fee" when people put their membership on hold.
We allow people to put their memberships on hold for two weeks or longer. What we find though is that there are some people who for whatever reason... likely procrastinating coming back... end up on hold for many months.
To deal with this problem, I've set up an "on-hold" membership and the cost is $3/mo. So this works. It keeps people honest. Nobody has a problem with paying $3/mo when they have to go on hold, but it also gets people who aren't planning on coming back to contact us to cancel. To keep it simple we use do it as a 1 month membership for $3, and we put it on auto-renew. The issue is when people's membership resumes, the "on-hold" membership does not automatically terminate.
So it would be very handy to be able to assign a charge to be levied while memberships are on hold.
Having multiple billing dates complicates the bookkeeping process. It would be way easier if an athlete's membership just gets prorated if they have a hold that ends in the middle of the month.
Holds for month to month athletes for as little as 2 weeks, with their billing date not changing
would love to see this!
