  1. MailTo button on Rosters and other web email improvements GH1123

    The email button on the roster page is pretty much useless because of the crippled form based email that is built in. Add another button with a MailTo link behind it that feeds the default email client with the list of selected email address in the header.

    That's basically the same functionality we had under IMIS--it was robust, immensely useful, and the necessary programming is trivial.

  2. Printer-friendly Roster Page with Contact Info for Leaders SD319

    In preparing for an activity, leaders often want to bring a long a printout of their activity roster, including participant names, mobile phone, email, and emergency contact info. Currently we have to export this info to excel and spend time removing unnecessary columns and rows and doing a lot of formatting to produce this. Offer a printer-friendly page that formats this info (and leaves out the unnecessary info like cancelled registrations, etc.).

  3. Access to Badge Rosters SDtbd

    Provide access to badge rosters with means for admins to maintain them and correct inaccuracies. I know of no defensible reason to hide this information, especially from committees that need it to do their jobs.

    Badge Rosters are a compilation of other rosters managed through different avenues. Meaning course admins can grant badges through their course rosters by graduating students. Right now the badge rosters are very long and not easy to manage – even for staff. We are not trying to hide information at all and simply are working to develop a system that is more manageable for everyone.

    Please respond with a few examples of what accessing badge rosters would enable you to do not which you cannot currently do. Thanks!

  4. Roster visibility change on the web site

    Some of us are wondering about a recent change on the web site. Activity rosters are no longer visible unless we're registered for that activity. Instead of displaying the roster, the web site now displays this text: " You must be registered for this activity to see the participants".

    This obviously enhances privacy for those members who wish it, but it also reduces visibility for those members who use the visibility to hang out together on Mountaineers activities.

    As you know, members already have the ability to mark their own profiles as private.

    I'm wondering if this privacy setting could…

  5. Activity Rosters should divide instructors and participants GH 1124

    Please divide rosters for participants and instructors for activities and course related activities in the same way that courses are set up. The sort by feature is less helpful than seeing the clear division.

  6. Prevent Leader/Instructor Badge Assignment GH2740

    When adding a person to a committee roster as a leader and/or an instructor, have two checkboxes--one for leaders and one for instructors--that prevent the leader and/or instructor badge from being assigned.

  7. Track Leaders, Instructors and Members better on Committee Rosters including Automatically Assigning Leader Badges SD134/SD580

    Right now you are added as a leader to a committee and Member Services gets an email notification that requires them to add the badge. Leader web rights however are instantly granted with the addition to the roster.

    Expiration dates for each, automatic leader/instructor badge assignment/removal, roster removal if none remain. Add committee member checkbox. Bulk update tools for managing roles/expiration dates. Determine what an instructor really is.

  8. When viewing roster (from yellow bar) include date of activity somewhere near the top GH2326

    Real helpful when I have multiple rosters for course-related activity. Example: Kayak Roll Course, with 3 associated pool sessions. I can easily get confused as to which one I am working on at the time. Right now, all three look identical. If dated would show up while in the roster editing screen, then I would instantly be able to verify which one is open.

  9. The rosters should be open to participants to see who is going on a trip--not only to carpool but just to know who is going. Why not?

    Currently the only ones who can see the rosters are leaders. Many times as a leader I've heard participants announce "I wish I had known you were going so we could have carpooled." Or many times after a trip people want to get together to socialize. We should protect personal information, but a list of names should not violate anyone's rights, should it?

  10. Improve search functionality in the Add Person to Roster field

    Improve the search capabilities of the lookup field when you are using the "Add Person to Roster" field. Let’s say I’m looking at an activity and I want to add a person to the roster. I click the Roster option near the top of the window then click the button to add a person. A data entry form then appears. When I click in the name window the options for what I can type are extremely limited. If I type the name of a person the way they themselves have told me it is spelled, very often there is no…

  11. Offered Status Deadline - Transparent date/time (SF only)

    Add specific date/time in offer email for the five-day cut-off. It currently says "5 days" but participants often want a specific time as to when they will be moved off.

    This will help us better justify when a person is moved from the offered status and create more transparency in the process.

  12. Add status column to course roster

    The course roster can be improved with a new column to show status of the students and instructosr. Students start out as registered then progress to graduated, cancelled, failed, extended, etc. Instructors may also cancel, no show. Using the role column to carry that fact is not the best because then when the status changes we lose track of the actual role. For example, if the status changes to cancelled, we no longer know if the registration was for a student or an instructor.

    By extension, this idea means that "graduated" is a status of the student role, not a…

  13. Roster field showing members Branch

    Many trips and outings are joined by members from all Branches. Once a trip is created, and the time comes for communicating final information, a field showing the participant's Branch world be most helpful to assist with arranging carpooling.

    Completed  ·  Garrett Arnold responded

    When we were chatting with many of our leaders and members during the creation of the current carpool system there was a strong consensus that people have the flexibility to share more detailed information about where they are coming from rather than grouping by Branch. We also were not able to share city with the group because of member privacy.

    What we came up with instead is the carpool preference field which has 2 parts. One that allows you to pick Drive, Ride, Drive or Ride, Drive- Full Car, Drive- Have Space.

    And then part two where you can say. I’m coming from Ravenna and prefer to meet at 65th St Park and Ride.

    Anyone signed up for the same trip can then see this detailed information when they go to the roster and click Email Roster.

    Leaders are able to see which city people are coming from and occasionally…

  15. Branch Council Roster Positions GH2746

    Please create positions specific to branch rosters:
    Branch Chair
    Branch Vice-chair
    Branch Co-chair
    Branch Secretary
    Branch Treasurer
    Branch Officer
    Member

    Note: "Member" is for branches whose committee chairs regularly attend branch council meetings but don't have a branch officer role (so its important we keep this) Thanks!

  16. Roster updates based on activity level

    One of the things were trying to do right now is clean up the roster, lots of old info there. Any chance those can be self updating fields? For example the scramble standard says leaders have to do at least one trip every 2 years. Something similar could work for instructors too.

    On the roster screens for activities and courses display names in last name, firstname MI format (also when searching to add people). Put a set of checkboxes on the main roster screens to let leaders update status without needing to drill down to the edit screen for eaxch student.

  18. Make Sort Stick on Roster SD581

    Make it so when you switch sort order to alpha or by role (like instructor or admin on a committee) it stays while you are editing.

    It would also be good to have this on the calendar function as well to remember what date you were on.

    Right now the download roster brings everyone on the list, it would be cool to be able to select a portion of the roster and download this portion for management for all rosters (committee, course and activity). - Suggestion from Focus Groups

  20. Improve Roster Functionality: Badge Rosters SD584
