  1. Make Header Only Toggle Between Publishing/Programs on Click GH2872

    With the most recent 3.1 update to mountaineers.org, the header changed so that it's "responsive" when you mouseover either "The Mountaineers" or "Mountaineers Books". In the past, you had to click on one to toggle, and now the header menu will change if you mouseover (either on purpose or on accident).

    As a super-user, this is frustrating because I often end up in the wrong environment on accident then have to revisit the header to get back to the proper menu items.

    Please change it back to swap only on clicks.

  2. Create a course roster export that contains field trip and trip result statuses for all students and corresponding activities SD665

    Have a roster download that not only shows whether the participants are signed up for the required field trips but also be able to see all the activities they are registered for to ensure that snowshoe students are getting their snowshoes, climbers are getting on climbs and kayakers are getting registered for kayak trips.

    This allows leaders to pre-emptively catch students who may be behind or not registered and send them an email ahead of time instead of struggling to get makes ups scheduled.

    It would also be good to see everyone who got marked as Needs Improvement/Failed in one…

  3. Make the Write-In Amount Box on the Donation Page Wider GH2902

    On the Donation Pages make the write-in amount box wider. Examples:
    - Donate: https://www.mountaineers.org/donate
    - MAP Scholarship Fund: https://www.mountaineers.org/donate/other-giving-options/map-scholarship-fund (see attached)

    Probably as wide as the one on the checkout page (see attached).

  4. Automate updating profile url when a member changes their name

    Automatically update profile url when a member changes their name in the system to avoid negatively impacting people (one example of a demographic that could be negatively impacted is trans folks). Right now, if a member updates their name in the system, it updates everything except URL generation automatically. The user then has to personally email someone to manually update it. It would be good if this process was automated to decrease the need for this extra step.

  5. Add start month to automated year attached to courses etc

    For courses and activities, the year auto-populates in the listing, but the accounting department needs the month to be part of that, otherwise they have to manually go into each listing to find out what month the course happens and where to book the revenue

    The automation here is only applied when a course is created, and volunteer course admins can and do change according to their own needs. So it’s best if we handle this in Salesforce. Currently we should be recording revenue based on the transaction date and then using the report that finds all revenue that was collected in the prior fiscal year but is for activities and courses that start in the current fiscal year.

    The title for activities is “{activity template title} – {route/place title}” so there is never a year added to its title.

  6. Update Website for Goolge "Remote Jobs" (Employment) GH2915

    To improve our listings on Google, add fields and markup needed for Google's "Remote Jobs" feature.

  7. Add way to Embed EveryAction advocacy forms into blogs, webpages

    Being able to embed the action form into a Mtnrs blog or webpage would simplify the number of steps/clicks members would have to take in order to engage on an action.

  8. Tweak to Volunteer RSVP button

    Having a button for volunteers to RSVP is great, however it's quite confusing for those wishing to attend the event even if there is a link or button in the text for them to go to EventBrite.

    My suggestion...when we're setting up an event RSVP and choosing Volunteer instead of participant, it would be more helpful if the button it creates in the right sidebar says RSVP as Volunteer instead of just RSVP. The text above the button should also reflect that it's to volunteer. See my examples.

  9. Include a link to Post a Trip Report in Your Trip Is Closed notice

    More trip reports might be written if a reminder/invitation to write link were tucked into the Your Trip Has Been Closed email.

  10. Favorites & x-Outs

    There are so many great hikes, climbs, scrambles, activities that it's hard to decide what to choose on any weekend day.

    Similar to Redfin house hunting, I recommend the option to "Favorite" an activity/course which gets added to a list of your favorites or "x-Out" which removes that activity from your view.

    This way, a user wont have to screen shot, write down, or re-search for an activity which piqued their interest after scanning through the many options.

    Cheers!

  11. Default "Summary" section for educational activities

    Use the summary section that has been entered into the activity template for clinics, seminars, lectures, and field trips as the default once you have selected the appropriate template. Right now, summary sections are written up in the template, but they don't automatically populate in the activity listing.

  12. Allow course leaders to offer spots to students whose offer has expired

    Right now students are offered a spot and they have 5 days to complete offer and then they are put into cancelled mode. Students also can be trying to complete their offer online and for courses where you have to pick field trips they often navigate away from the screen to check calendars and when they come back the 30 minutes is up and they have been kicked into cancelled mode. Both of these cancellations usually result in the student reaching out to the course leader and the course leader is unable to offer them a spot so instead member…

  13. Add Total Column on "View Lodge Stay Rosters" Summary Section

    In the "View Lodge Stay Rosters" "Summery" section add a "Hosts, Volunteers & Participants" column that is the sum of the "Hosts & Volunteers" + "Participants" columns. We're tight on space, so we can remove the "Cancellation Pending" column to make room.

  14. Add the Participant Result status field to the CSV download after an activity closes

    As an admin or a leader, I would like to see the participant result passed in the CSV download option after the activity closes so I can keep track of this value.

    It is currently on the display screen, but not in the csv export. Many times the course will be open and various activities will be completed, and it is required to keep track of each activities completion. Displays on the screen for activities with a large amount of students required more manual effort.

  15. Create a category of documents that are truly private

    Currently even if a listing or document is marked private by the creator it can still be viewed by ANYONE who is listed as a leader for any committee on the mountaineers website., except for member profiles. On occasion we create and want to archive documents and trip listings that the creator does not currently, or ever, want those hundreds of Mountaineers leaders to be able to see (trip postings that aren't ready for prime time, participant information for a Global Adventure that may include passport details, etc.) I'm guessing that few people who click 'private' on the status bar…

    Website permissions are automatically assigned as needed. We can manually make exceptions to these. If you think thi sis needed, please send a request with the details of how you think permissions need to be different and a link to where this is (or your best description if it is something new we’re adding) to info@mountaineers.org.

  16. Add new brands on ExpertVoice

    I love this perk and have used it 3 times already. My only complaint is that there needs to be new brands added on. I remember getting an email about a brand item only to find out it's not on The Mountaineers. How hard is it to add more?
    I know we all like different brands so I would hate to loose any just want more added in.

  17. Improve Layout of Bottom Portlets GH2806

    When we have more than three bottom portlets, their layout arrangement goes "bonkers." We'd like to arrangements to work like those in the attached example.

  18. Update Gift Memberships Pricing Portlets

    Update portlet text for Gift Memberships to show new price. Right now on the gift membership page and on the next page it shows the original price for memberships, not the discounted gift price, and it should probably show the regular price crossed out with the gift price in red. So for the holidays (December) it will be 25% off, and for any time earlier it will be 15% off.

  19. Print Youth Program Forms SD647

    We'd like to print the Youth Program Form(s) as we do for the Youth information Form(s) from the Youth Flag Report.
    - We'd have two "print" buttons on the Youth Flag Report: "Print Youth Information Forms" and "Print Youth Program Forms"
    - We'd use the same "line in the sand" (i.e. ~~~) to include only text/responses above the line for the program form(s) being printed.

  20. Enable a script to create lodge stays and activiites in bulk SD663

    As an admin, I need to create a complex set of lodge stay events for each weekend of the winter season. Doing this via the UI is error prone, time consuming, and painful. Provide a way that I can write a script in powershell, python, php, etc that will create the appropriate entities in the backend database. I'm willing to generate entities in xml, json, or the flavor of your choice.

    If you can't give me the ability to write a script to do, then consider providing a script that does the work needed.

    The script I want will do…

    We can already clone lodge stays and will develop a tool to clone activities. See the comments.
