  1. 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.

    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…

  2. Roster screen: Student status and sorting

    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.

  4. Rosters: Registration Date/Time Sort Order GH1183

    When sorting by registration date/time, date sort order is correct but not time within a date.

  5. Improve Roster Functionality: Badge Rosters SD584

    Make sure there is pagination and the ability to search on large badge rosters. We'd also like the ability to download rosters. Need to be able to bulk update expiration date. Also need to fix the roster download function.

  6. Roster Management - Canceling after registration closes GH1782

    Currently if registration for an activity is closed and the leader cancels someone from the roster, the next person from the waitlist is automatically added to the roster. To avoid this the total capacity of the trip has to be reduced before canceling someone. This is annoying as a leader and confusing for the participants if done wrong. Once registration is closed, the roster should be fixed unless manually edited.

    Roster management is now manual after registration has closed. We will be sending out a notification in leader lines but please pass along to your fellow leaders.
