  1. Bulk add participants to rosters

    It would be great to be able to add multiple people to a roster at one time instead of having to do a multi-step process for each person. This would be especially helpful for committees and youth programs who have recurring events with the same people. It would allow committees to easily add and then bulk update volunteers hours tracking.

    Please see the attached image for an example.

    This suggestion applies to committee, activity and event rosters. This seems like it should be a-ok for committee rosters. It could be challenging for activity and event rosters where there are capacities and deciding how to handle that check and potential error, and partly because of the caveat that whatever roles and other details are chosen apply to all who are registered in this scenario. We may need to consider roster addition somewhat like the “add guest” we have for lodge stay reservations where the details for each person may be different.

  2. Books & Maps: Add a Revision Date GH3284

    For books and maps, add a Revision Date in addition to the Publication Date. This is helpful for book reprint dates where some corrections and revisions may be made. It is especially helpful for maps there generally do not have new editions that get a new ISBN and Publication Date, but are revised and updated every few years.

  3. Climbing leaders need a course in basic geology, see West Ridge Cuttroat report.

    Mass wasting, the geological term, should not include Mountaineers.
    When I used to guide and teach climbing professionally, I would ask my clients and students to consider how all those rocks in the scree and talus slopes got there. Later as national park ranger, it became obvious that ignorance of basic geology was widespread, as evidenced by the body bags included with our gear.

  4. Pre-orders & Backorders: Better Handle Failed Credit Card Transactions GH3285

    When the nightly delayed orders process runs, nothing is done with those with failed credit cards as best I can tell. I am not sure what's best to do here, but I think the options are:


    1. Cancel the backorder and update the Salesforce opportunity's Stage to Online Credit Card Problem.


    2. Mark the pre-order or backorder as Credit Card Declined on the website and Online Credit Card Problem in Salesforce, and add a "Buy Now" button/link for the customer to move the item, shipping address, and shipping method to the "regular" shopping cart and take them to the checkout page.


    Any…

  5. Improve badge disply sort on course view

    I have a low priority website UI feature request. For courses which award multiple badges to graduates, it would be nice if the list of badges were sorted nicer. One sort method could be "Course badges first then Skill badges, and within those by alphabetical". Here's the 2020 Seattle Basic course as an example of messy badges...

    thanks!

  6. In addition to Leave no Trace consider As an Outdoor Ambassador, removing traces left by others

    Not unusual to see some trash on the trail or campsite. Be a good steward, pick it up and pack it out. Consider always carrying a trash bag in your pack for this. It often only takes a few seconds to pick it up. Help keep the outdoors pristine! :)

  7. Remove Mountaineers Member Discount language from ineligible items on website

    Current "Mountaineers Member Discount" language is confusing to people who are not logged into the website and are interested in purchasing an item that is not eligible for a member discount -- for example, a season pass to Meany Lodge.

    Please remove "Mountaineers Member Discount - Log in to access the promo code and receive 20% off your order" from merchandise pages where this discount does not apply in order to reduce customer confusion.

  8. Only insert new instructors to course roster GH3157

    When an instructor signs up for a workshop or field trip then they are automatically added as an "Instructor" at the course level, I believe this is new functionality. However, if that person is already set as a course "Leader" then they are demoted to be a course "Instructor". It seems like the new automatic behavior should only happen if the person is not currently on the course roster.

  9. Mountaineers Website Hosted Marketplace

    Have a Marketplace for buying/selling gear that requires a % donation of the sell price as a donation to the mountaineers. If a mandatory donation isn't possible, allow sellers to elect a % to donate.

  10. Set focus to username field in login

    Please set the "focus" to the first field "username” on the login page. It's a niggly little thing to have to proactively click into the box to type in it on every login.

  11. Add pre-checked email opt in box on a check out page

    Email list building: Add a pre-checked "Opt in" email box to a page in the check out process so that opt in is the default.

    We already opt all new contacts into our Routefinder, Conservation Currents and Book email newsletters by default. It’s easy to opt out later on the website or in an email newsletter that is received. We decided thi sis all we need and that doing this in the checkout process would be overkill.

  12. Trip closure delinquency notice

    Automatically mail out to leaders on a quarterly basis a list of trips that have not yet been closed out, say are one month past.

  13. Trip report input improvements

    On the trip report page, allow for multiple photo uploads, have the "upload" tab come up by default when clicking to add a photo, keyboard shortcut to add a photo, and tell people upfront to save often, that they can edit after saving (I lost a ton of work).

  14. Pre-order/Backorder Quantity GH3044

    As a website visitor pre-ordering or backordering a a book, allow me to enter a quantity that is applied when I click the "pre-order" or "backorder" button, and allow me to change this on the payment page, so that I may pre- or backorder more than one copy of a book at a time.

  15. Catch and Handle API Tax Rate Exceptions GH2919

    As a site visitor purchasing books and/or merchandise, show me an error message if the tax API fails so I know how to get my order placed. We think the best is to retry a few times and if that fails use a fallback rate from site settings.

  16. Re-sync Failed Plone-Acumen Transactions GH2921

    Add a "Re-sync to Acumen button to receipt pages to enable Mountaineers staff to re-sync a transaction to Acumen. With power outages, Acumen posting, and server maintenance, this will make it easier to get any missed orders to Acumen without having to enter them manually.

  17. Update "Last Activity Led" column in committee rosters to add co-leaders and exclude cancelled trips GH3277

    Currently, the "Last Activity Led" column in committee rosters on the website only factors in activities where the contact is listed as the Primary Leader, and includes activities that were cancelled.

    Please exclude cancelled activities from this calculation, and include activities where the contact is listed as a Primary Leader OR a Co-Leader.

  18. Promo Codes: Convert "Specific Product Use" to Multiselect GH3278

  19. Pre-populate times on cloned events with those from the event being cloned GH3276

    When cloning an event, pre-populate the event times and setup times with the times from the event being cloned. But keep them editable. Normally, a monthly meeting is going to be at the same time. Pre-populating will reduce the chance of entry errors as well. I caught several of my own mistakes.

  20. Leader resources tab

    Can we have a leader resource stab which could outline:
    Master list of climbs
    Field Trip Lottery dates
    Shared resources like manuals, application drafts, graduation drafts, etc.
    Many more things I'm sure I haven't thought of...
