  1. Improve Activity Edit Form (sea kayak fields plus pace)

    We re-ordered fields to make more sense when listing the activity. Improved and added help text to some of the fields.

    We added three fields for kayakers, maximum wind, maximum waves and maximum current. We also added a free form field for pace of the activity.

  2. Make Activity template type a multi select

    Right now we have a number of leadership clinics which we are having a hard time reporting on since they are categorized by activity type when really we want them tagged as both the activity like Sea Kayaking AND outdoor leadership

  3. Make it possible to add merchandise when renewing or buying a membership or gift membership

    It'd be neat to be able to buy a mountaineers hat or pint glass when joining and/or buying a gift membership for someone.

    You might also like section should show up on Join the Mountaineers page in addition to showing on the shopping cart.

    Similar set up for gift memberships

  4. Leader "Difficulty" Rating Default to Blank GH2331

    Currently when listing a new activity, the "Leader Rating" field defaults to "For Beginners (Getting Started Series)" There are cases where a trip is NOT for beginners, but the leader never changed their rating. Can the Leader Rating default to blank, and require the leader to select one of the options rather than default to For Beginners?

  5. Make Rolling Enrollment Courses Easier to Find in Find Courses Faceted Search

    Courses like basic snowshoeing which have multiple sessions are falling to the bottom and are harder to find.

  6. Add Host & Volunteer Roster to Lodge Stays GH2599

    Like we have for our activity and course rosters, add a "Hosts & Volunteers" roster with a user-specified capacity, so we can reserve space at our lodge for our volunteers and allow them to make their own free reservation and add/pay for guests they will bring.

  7. Add Requested Info field to Courses

    Add an additional field on courses that prompts students to provide info when signing up for a course. For summer camps this can allow us to collect T-shirt size or could be used for questions about kayak rentals for kayak students etc.

  8. Reclassify Snowshoe Routes and Trips Using New S/T Rating System

    This posting is the result of 1) a few years of cross-branch discussions among the Snowshoe Programs of the various branches, and 2) email discussions with the Program Center about how to go about changing the rating system used to classify Snowshoe trips. The feedback we received from the Program Center was that the correct way to document our request for changing the website was to post the changed to feedback.mountaineers.org.

    The Snowshoe Programs of the various branches would like to change the way that Snowshoe Routes and Trips are rated so that each route/trip has a separate Strenuous and…

  9. have "suggested alternate activities" pop-up when someone registers for the waitlist on an activity

    It would be great if we could have "suggested alternate activities" pop-up when someone registers for the waitlist on an activity. This might look like the page that shows of recommended books. Alternate activities would be of similar difficulty, they would have availability, and they would be open or upcoming. The hope would be to try to get folks off our waitlist and into activities with availability.

  10. When adding a reservation to SPC calendar, add an "ability to open/close SPC" checkbox

    Facility and Volunteers don't have a clear system for ensuring there is a person on site who can open and close the facility. Under the current system, staff must manually follow-up with each leader or make assumptions about event overlaps and if there is going to be someone that can open/close the facility.

    I'd like to see a required checkbox on the add event page that asks:

    "Will there be someone that is familiar and able to open and close the program center during this event?" If no, or unsure, please contact the facility staff at spc@mountaineers.org"

    We then…

  11. Establish standardized time limit for leaders to post credit for courses/badges.

    Start a standard course closure time so students know when they can expect to have credit for their courses. Would give consistency across courses and leaders. Right now people can have a "student" badge indefinitely even after finishing all requirements if the course is not signed off.

  13. Radio buttons needed to indicate snowcat times for Meany Lodge GH2595

    For Meany Lodge registrations, we would like radio buttons so the participant can indicate which snowcat they will come in on, as well as dietary restrictions which is free text.

  14. Fix time entry so that entering 12:00 AM (midnight) works GH2602

    Currently when we enter 12:00 AM in a datetime field, it is converted to 12:00 PM when saved. Note that entering 00:00 AM works, so this is the workaround.

  15. Need Secondary Emergency Contact when Spouse on trip

    The Member Profile allows you to provide an emergency contact. This works well, but if it is a spouse or partner, and both of you go on the same trip (as happened on a recent backpack I led), that contact is not useful. Leaders end up needing to request a second contact. (My co-leader wanted this from me; the problem hadn't occurred to me.) For such situations, it would be helpful to have a second contact in the system.

    My suggestion is to provide the option to enter a second emergency contact and phone number, and where it is provided…

  16. Calendar Setup and Breakdown Times Autopopulate

    SET UP TIMES and BREAKDOWN TIMES should auto-populate to mirror the event date as a default (at least for staff entering events, if it can be permission-based). Default should be 15 minutes on either side of event start and end. Thank you.

  19. Change map when destination is changed GH2018

    When a trip leader changes the destination [route/place] for an existing trip [activity], the map coordinates [GPS Start and End points] don't change. They should probably change to the new destination [route/place].

    [I think we also missed high point when adding and editing an activity. We should add that too when we do this.]

  20. Add activity templates to accomodate seasonal variations for climbing

    When we transition to skill badges as pre-requisites for trips I'd like to be able to modify the default pre-req badges on the activity I list depending on the season. For example if I lead a trip to the tooth in June I want it to have all of the regular basic alpine skills like snow travel, belay etc but in August I want to be able to remove the snow travel skill pre-requisite or have a template that brings up a different set of requirements.
