  1. 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…

  2. Make field trip/lecture instructors push to course rosters SD381

    Right now we have a lot of instructors who are just added or sign up to a single field trip roster. Unfortunately because they aren't added to the course roster they aren't available for recruiting via our mega course template roster for future field trips/lectures that particular year or in future years.

    Also having the course show up in your My Courses & Programs is helpful for instructors who want a quick link to upcoming field trips for them to volunteer for. This is particularly important for the many day courses like basic, scrambling, sea kayaking etc.

  3. Course activity review tool for courses with 2-3 activities SD664

    Include some bulk review and update tools for courses where we only 2-3 required activities. For courses like WFA, Navigation or Basic Snowshoeing with just a couple required field trips/lectures make a roster preview and download that allows you see that a student is registered for all required activities and then their participant result and probably participant notes. This is probably exception report for a course roster compared to 1-3 activity template roster (on screen and download).

    For more involved courses we are hoping to build a mega download of all activities for students involved in that course. See listing…

  4. Volunteer (instructor recruitment) request opt in GH2800

    With mega course rosters for instructor recruitment and other ways we can email people through the website it would be nice for people to have a way of opting in/out of instructor recruitment emails.

  5. 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.

  6. View/download badges of all the people on a committee roster and add filters SD417/SD597

    Add filters to top of the page- narrow list down to instructors, leaders or committee members. Also includes instructor opt in/out checkbox. Any other filters?

    Add "last activity led" column to the sheet and download.

    Add 4 badge columns to the download so you can see leader badges, skill badges, course badges and instructor badges.

  7. Add filters to the My Activities page GH2799

    Filters to add include Trip Result, Participant Role, and Participant Result. This is useful for leaders to review participant activity info for leader's permission requests. It is also useful for helping keep committee rosters up-to-date.

  8. Keep a Waitlist for Lodge Stays SD555/560

    Waitlists for lodge stays are complicated and challenging both because of the potential for one person to make a reservation for multiple people and the number of nights for which they may wish register.

    It may be best to keep a waitlist separate from the roster for each lodge stay and email the entire list if any amount of availability opens. Then it's back to a first come, first served basis. This is a "notify me if space becomes available" rather than our traditional waitlist functionality.

  9. Only Count Trip, Clinic/Seminar Activities for Guest activity limit GH2769

    We'd like new guest members to be able to sign up for courses that have two activities associated with them and be able to join for two regular hikes and right now the course related activities count towards your "guest count"

  10. Fix Required Input Needed error on roster

    When you are trying to add someone to the roster it often spits back a "Required Input Needed" error even when you have entered someone's name or email correctly. Fortunately you can just hit Save and override error message but its confusing for new leaders.

  11. Add a trip plan upload and PLB checkbox GH2824

    Add the ability to upload a "trip plan" to an activity. In addition, we would like a checkbox that indicates if the trip party is planning to carry a PLB. The ability to upload a trip plan is priority #1, and the PLB checkbox is priority #2 (if it is not a lot of additional work).

  13. Improve Text Search Results SD645

    Refine the the text search results for all of the faceted searches including site search. Using threes words (W1, W2, W3) as an example, by rank ordering results in this order:
    1. Phrase – W1 and W2 and W3 in that order
    2. Contains all three words in any order
    3. Contains W1 and W2
    4. Contains W1 and W3
    5. Contains W2 and W3
    6. Contains W1 only
    7. Contains W2 only
    8. Contains W3 only

  16. Change Kitsap Branch Name to Peninsula Branch GH2736 SDtbd

    Long time members of the branch did not think Kitsap captured the true nature of the branch's membership, so voted to rename to Peninsula branch. I expect some increase in membership from the Olympic Peninsula, where more people will feel like this is "their" branch. I do not think this will be significant in the overall scale of membership, of which Kitsap is a small part.

  17. Exception for seniors.

    Exception for seniors.
    Reference: BAKER’S DOZEN Offered by the Bellingham Branch, asks that you climb no more than 5 peaks per year to achieve this, but since I will be just short of 65 next year when I attempt it, I was wondering if an exception might be made for seniors, since we may not live long enough for multi-year attempts.

  18. Remove "Getting Started Series" from the Activity Leader Rating GH2781

    Its confusing to see "Getting Started Series" in the activity search results as an option when we no longer have a formal "Getting Started Series" program.

  19. Improve (Prevent) Header Switching When Viewing Content SD632

    As a site visitor keep the universal header selection and global (section or subsite?) header (The Mountaineers or Mountaineers Books) displayed until I choose to switch so that I do not have a jarring navigation experience while I am browsing the site.

  20. STOP Allowing Registration to Occur Before Registration Begins

    Field Trips are full before registration date. Wtf? This makes registration dates pointless!!! As a new Scrambling student I’m patiently waiting for field registration to begin only to realize they are full prior to registration. Members are fine getting leader’s permission but should have to wait till the registration is open to register not before.

    Hi John,

    This is definitely frustrating.

    At the end of May we had a special section in our Leader Lines monthly e newsletter that specifically talked about this

    "
    Leader Logistics: Private vs “Public” Trips
    We’re heading into summer trip season, and at this time of year our Member Services team gets a number of questions about pre-filled trips. Please remember – all Mountaineers activities should be open to any guest or member who meets the stated prerequisites. If you wish to hand-select a group of friends, this is a private trip. Please do not list private trips on The Mountaineers website! It creates confusion and disappointment for our members who are looking to get outside with their Mountaineers community.

    The most important piece of this process is transparency. If you’d like to give registration priority to a certain group of individuals – for example, students who are in a…
