On the roster screens for activities and courses display names in last name, firstname MI format (also when searching to add people). Put a set of checkboxes on the main roster screens to let leaders update status without needing to drill down to the edit screen for eaxch student.1 vote
On course rosters you can now change the position and student expiration date for multiple participants.
calendar: Allow admins to see events that are pending. State seems to only show published events. It is very difficult to find an event once it has been submitted for review.1 vote
Already works as described in idea.
When a feedback item or idea has been submitted display its id number for reference1 vote
I just did some investigating and it doesn’t look like there is a way to see those for easy reference but they are listed in the url if you click on the item. ie this idea is in the forum 273688 and has a unique reference number 6803077
This is the only web-edit tool I can think of that doesn't have a REVIEW
option. Unless I'm missing something, I can only SAVE or CANCEL from EDIT
mode. The requires many edits - and the system has been sluggish this afternoon.
Please add "REVIEW" to the wish list. :-)1 vote
The web system we chose for mountaineers.org is a modern content management system which uses the different statuses of private, pending review and published. The private setting is similar to a review button where you can review what you just made but it isn’t available as published material to the public.
Sites can be sluggish or fast for a wide variety of reasons but please let us know if there is a specific action you are regularly doing on the website that is consistently taking a long time.

Add an AIARE Level 2 badge for instructors who have higher level avalanche training.3 votes
In preparing for an activity, leaders often want to bring a long a printout of their activity roster, including participant names, mobile phone, email, and emergency contact info. Currently we have to export this info to excel and spend time removing unnecessary columns and rows and doing a lot of formatting to produce this. Offer a printer-friendly page that formats this info (and leaves out the unnecessary info like cancelled registrations, etc.).25 votes
Live but need to add email address column and better phone number formatting. We’ll have that done soon.
Allow the capability to add text to an activity title or add another field
that is displayed in the Activity listing. An example is a sea kayak trip that is at night. It would be nice in the Activity listing for the activity to display "Sea Kayak - Sequim Bay - Night Paddle".5 votes
The first line of the activity summary is now being added to the listing in the Find Activities search so it will say Sea Kayak- Sequim Bay and then directly underneath it will be “Night paddle to observe full moon…”
This allows our leaders to accurately describe their activity and put in a little special “marketing” to show that their paddle (or hike or backpack) isn’t just any old paddle around Sequim etc.
When someone drops from a course, update the registration date to reflect the date of cancellation. Currently the original registration date remains in that field. This makes is hard to track when individuals drop from the course.3 votes
This is very difficult to add to our website, so we now send this information to our or CRM, so that we can help as needed with refund processing and informing you of cancellation status. Please contact our Member Services Team at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you need any help with this.
Allow course admins to multi-select students for the purpose of mass cancellation/roster management. Note: the multi-select is already there, but I can't cancel/move all the selected registrants.2 votes
Completed 12/8/14. Look for the blue button at the bottom of the course roster that says “Change Role or Expiration” This is what you can use to bulk graduate people or bulk extend a student badge.
Improve trip reports by allowing date of trip and more photos, rich text, potential for an additional field.
Also want leaders to be able to submit trip reports that are linked to the activity as an official write up but also allow members to write trip reports.5 votes
Completed May 2016.
See new tech blog for details, choose View Trip Reports from the Explore menu to search them, or choose a route/place or activity where you were a participant to add one. Note that you can edit any that you have already submitted to take advantage of the new features.
If it is necessary for us to avoid posting multiple routes-places and activities to the same trail, it would be very helpful to have the ability for users to enter a flexible set of 'tags' with the range of place names along the planned route that can be searched for to find other routes-places or activities going to the same place but named something different.1 vote
Lots of great updates have been made to routes/places which allow greater flexibility have been made.

We are also working with leaders to make sure that everyone understands that search uses the titles and summary statements so making sure that any alternative names for a route/place are in the summary.
And of course if you see a route/place that needs to have a name changed or added just email email@example.com
Many of our leaders want to wait for snow reports or weather forecasts a week or so before an activity before they post the activity, but the current process for centralized review and posting creates a time lag that makes this virtually impossible. Can you train and empower a small group of route-place administrators out in the branches to increase the ability to process these submissions more quickly? Considering the wide range in quality of the 'reviewed' routes-places showing up now, I think that you could set up a group of trained and accountable volunteers who would do at least as well and take their responsibility just as seriously as the staff does. Also, can you offer an option for a leader to put up an activity to an unreviewed route-place with the idea that the route-place wouldn't go into the official database until it had been reviewed?

We have caught up on our summer backlog and are now turning routes and places requests around in under 48 hours. Leaders are also doing a better job of submitting content-rich routes and places. We’ve made improvements to the process, and more are on the way.
Allow us to list multiple routes-places for different activity types or difficulty levels to the same locale
We've been told that we have to use a generic route-place for an activity going to a particular locale even if that generic route-place is a poor fit to what we plan to do and may turn off potential participants. For example, a route-place may be listed as a scramble or climb and I want to list a hike or backpack there - it will show up in the activity search as a scramble and hikers won't want to do it. Or sometimes a route-place is listed as a hike and I want to do it as a backpack but the route-place description is very specific to a hiking itinerary. Can you allow us to enter separate routes-places to a similar locale for very different activity types, or allow multiple activity-type tags on the route-place? Likewise it might be listed as strenuous but my pace will make the activity moderate; could you possibly display the leader rating for the activity rather than the difficulty rating for the route-place on the search listing for activities?

When creating new Routes/Places leaders now have the option of having multiple activities tagged as suitable activities for that Route. For example Marmot Pass can be listed as a Hike and a backpack and Table Mountain (baker) can be listed so it shows up in Skiing and in Snowshoeing.
Additionally when a leader lists an activity for that route/place the activity will default to the mileage and elevation gain and route difficulty but leaders have the ability to change that mileage and elevation gain and difficulty to more accurately describe their specific trip.
When searching for activities via the Find Activities under EXPLORE, the summary statement now shows to set one’s trip apart from other trips. The leader’s chosen difficulty also shows.
