  1. Folder view of Documents Sort Order

    When I open a list of documents, it seems to be in some random order and difficult to find certain documents when the list gets long. At a minimum, default document lists to alpha order. Possibly, sort folders to the top, but keep those in alpha order, too. A way to sort by date would also be nice. .

    The columns sort by default to the order items were added with the most recently added at the bottom. Clicking on a column header will forward sort by that column’s data, and clicking a second time on the same column header will reverse the sort.

  2. Branches and Committees self-maintain content on their pages

    Allow Branches and Committees to self-maintain their pages. Committees can now maintain a brief description, but it is limited to text and cannot contain any formatting, images, links, or other useful stuff. There is currently a fairly long description for each Branch, but it is too static and, as far as I can tell, maintained by the PC. With more control of Branch page(s) on the club website, the need for Branches to have the separate websites is minimized.

    Committee pages have a new look! Go check them out and start adding content to the rich text description and summary. You can also create a folder and then create a whole new webpage with extra content that you can link to . Check out Tacoma Sea Kayaking, Olympia Hiking, Everett Scrambling, Seattle climbing as examples where some content has been added. Committee admins should be able to edit and committee members can now delete and archive content. Check out the Tech 2.3 Blog on the homepage for more web updates. Contact member services for additional questions about updating your committee pages. Additionally there are new links on the Getting Started pages which link back to branch communities and from the Learn menu to divert people to get plugged into their branches.

  3. Volunteers need to be able to delete and archive content SD227/280

    Should be able to remove course materials from Manage Course Materials area or get rid of course templates no longer being used or files that are not up to date.

    With the site search (search box in the header) anyone logged in can find other members and guests. This is how we implemented the member directory.

    Remember there also the My Volunteer Profile and Find Volunteers (in the header’s “Volunteers” menu.

  6. Add Activities and Routes & Places to a Map SD184/287

    It'd be cool if we had routes and places all shown on a map! And link to trip reports :)

  7. Ability to switch activity templates for trips after trips have been created GH1937

    Can you make it easier to switch a climb to an alpine scramble and vice versa when accidently listed the wrong way. Or to make a switch from winter scramble template and regular scramble template so the right pre-reqs are listed for the trip I want to lead.

  8. Importing pre-website launch activity and course history onto the new website.

    This is actively being worked on right now as part of a planned post-launch enhancement. It was one of the most frequently heard requests immediately after launch of the new website. There are a number of technical barriers and issues to work through because of the intense integration of activity, membership, course, and roster data that exists in our system, but the developers are telling us we can expect them all to be worked through by mid-December at this point.

    Completed 12/8

    We imported ALL courses, clinics, seminars and trips. We were not able to import all lectures and field trips related to a course. This means you will be able to see your course information, but won’t necessarily see all of the course related activities. For example: You will see that you took Basic Climbing, but will not see the crevasse-rescue field trip associated with that course.\

    We felt it was important to have as much information imported as possible, which means the data isn’t always the cleanest. Prior to 2003, we did not have a good way of digitally storing this information. Which means some dates may be wrong – it defaults to 1906 – and some details may be missing (because they weren’t previously required). The current state of your profile history is the best we can provide the the historical data on file.

  9. Make it easier for us to organize carpools

    And have communication between trip participants be easier.

    More specifically we would like to see whether person
    A) wants to carpool
    B) ride or drive
    C) where they are coming from
    D) Be able to contact them or potentially the whole group of people who wants to carpool in one swift email.
