  11. Close registration for courses that were created before registration close date field existed GH 1148

    Is it possible to close registration for all courses that happened last year. The default when we added registration open and close dates to courses was to have them perpetually open which has meant we have had a handful of these incorrect sign ups.

    From Jeff- The best fix actually might be blocking registration for a course whose end date is in the past.

    Activities can be scheduled for a route/place that has not been published, but only the author and staff can see it. All others will get an error. The more complete the content, the quicker we can review and publish. If you have an immediate need, please feel free to call our Member Services Team.

  17. Reduce number of clicks to access specific class rosters SD360

    Reduce number of clicks to access specific class roster- maybe allow users to "favorite" the classes they need to access often (esp for committee members who are not registered for the course in question). - Suggestion from Adam from Focus groups
