  1. Co-leader and Mentored Leader Activity Roster Automation GH2494

    For adding to only (not editing) an activity team roster record, if the role is "Mentored leader" or "Co-leader," automatically check the "Admins" and "Show as contact" boxes.

  2. Offered Status Deadline - Transparent date/time ~Salesforce

    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.

    Congratulations! You were on the waitlist for ACTIVITY to take place on DATE, and a spot has just opened up! You have five days from now to accept this offer.

  3. 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?

  4. 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…

    Declined  ·  Jeff Bowman responded

    We have no additional feedback that this is a desired change by other course leaders, and it seems that having one column with “Student” and one with “Graduated” would be too confusing.

  5. 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.

  6. Replace Roster CSV (download), Copy, Print Feature GH1578

    The "TableTools" plug-in that we're using is now retired and it used Flash which is not available on all devices. We'll replace it with a newer "Buttons" plug-in that uses HTML5.

    We upgraded to the new download plug-in and still have the same three functions: copy, csv and print.

  7. 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.

  8. Download Roster: Have option to download only those selected GH1132

    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

  9. Allow Rich Text Editing When Sending Email from the Website SD345

    When sending email from the website, allow the use of simple rich text formatting (bold, italic, hyperlinks, etc.) and adding attachments when sending email from a roster or the carpool features on our website.

  10. Badge Rosters Access

    To implement the new climbing leader progression (as well as the recently updated snowshoe leader progression), please give committee admins access to edit leader badge rosters. While there's a very small risk that someone could accidentally remove a person from a different branch from a badge roster, that's simple to fix. (note: if it can be possible to manager leader badges via the committee roster, that would also be a workable solution).
    Thanks!

    Much like the “Access to Badge Rosters” idea, http://feedback.mountaineers.org/forums/273688-general-feedback/suggestions/6746686-access-to-badge-rosters, we have declined this idea.

    The practical constraints are that 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, and committee admins manage leader badges through their committees. We recognize that some committees need to assign more than one leader badge and that not all leaders get the same badge(s). We have the “Multiple Badges Within a Committee” idea, http://feedback.mountaineers.org/forums/273688-general-feedback/suggestions/37059466-multiple-badges-within-a-committee-gh2933, for this.

    The technical constraints are that (1) adding sharing permissions was partly broken in the Plone 5 update—fixing it is at least a small project, and (2) badge roster pages have issues that need fixed for them to be used for this.

    One option to relieve staff from having to add leaders to badge rosters and until the “Multiple Badges Within a…

  11. Alphabetical sort for rosters has disappeared

    Before the May plone update committee, course and activity rosters could be sorted by name which was very helpful when comparing rosters and trying to find peoples names to manage rosters. Right now when you have a roster for over 12 people it becomes more difficult to manage rosters. Hopefully since we used to have this functionality it can be fixed soon.

  12. Fix committee/roster visibility for committee members to where it previously was

    Prior to the latest website update, any committee member was able to click on a committee link on their profile to go to the roster for their committee and also to see the roster for their committee even if they weren't an admin. This functionality has been lost with the update and many committee members found this extremely helpful even if we didn't need full admin privileges. As just one important aspect of this functionality, this is the only way to find one's fellow committee members and send an email to everyone. Would be great for this to be fixed…

  13. Fix the Mountaineers email utility so that emails will successfully send to all addresses

    When I use the 'send email' function with a large event, every time there are 5 or 6 people who don't receive the email and also don't find it in their junk mail. This becomes very frustrating for me and for them! If we offer this function it would be great if it worked for all domains.

    We have done and are doing all we can to ensure our email delivery and reputation. Unfortunately there’s no way to guarantee that every email we send will be delivered.

    We have found that ISPs (Internet Service Providers) like Comcast/Xfinity and Earthlink are often the email providers with the most deliverability issues. We recommend using email providers that are NOT also ISPs. Some examples are Microsoft (outlook.com, live.com, msn.com, etc.), Google (gmail.com), and Yahoo (yahoo.com), but there are many others.

  14. Give site admins permission to 'remove' people from rosters. GH3329

    In order to prevent folks who have been canceled from moving back to the top of the wait list as a result of their original registration time (this happens in CHS often), allow staff to 'remove' the person from the roster. This will mean they receive a new registration time every time they move from 'canceled' to 'wait listed'.

    For course template team rosters that have a slow initial load time, display the message, "Gathering roster data. This may take a up to a minute." until the roster data is displayed.

  17. Comma delimited roster email address copy GH2884

    Under "copy email addresses" in the roster, could we also have two separate ones, comma delimited and semi-colon delimited?

  18. 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…

  19. Leaders of a committee should be able to access old course rosters

    From Dennis Miller via info@mountaineers.org

    It appears that courses expire which means they don't show up under the course template unless you are course admin.

    Committee admins can see all courses. If a person needs to work with historical courses, they should be a committee admin.
