  2. Add Clustering to Map Search GH2793

    WTA uses a cool cluster feature on their Hike Finder Map- this would allow us to show more of our listings on the zoomed out view. https://www.wta.org/go-outside/map

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. Add filters to the My Activities page GH2799

    Filters to add include Activity Type, 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.

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

    Add filters to top of the page--admins, committee members, position, leaders, instructors, badges and lookup by name. Also includes instructor opt in/out checkbox (see http://feedback.mountaineers.org/forums/273688-general-feedback/suggestions/34126369-volunteer-instructor-recruitment-request-opt-in).

    Add four badge columns to the download so you can see course badges, skill badges, leader badges and instructor badges. And maybe a fifth column that shows all other badges.

  10. Add back grey line text divider line in rich text fields GH2427

    Previously you could add a gray line to break up your text in blogs and other text heavy fields. Ever since we launched the new text editor that <hr> HTML tag has disappeared - bring it back!

  11. Flag and Ask about Employer match in shopping cart for membership and/or donation GH2677

    Flag and ask about employer match in the shopping cart if it contains a membership or donation amount (mostly like we already do sans employer if a donation amount is specified) and sync that to Salesforce.

  12. Co-leader and Mentored Leader Activity Roster Automation GH2494

    For adding to only (not editing) an activity team roster record, if the role is "Mentored leader" or "Co-leader," automatically check the "Admins" and "Show as contact" boxes.

  14. Print Youth Program Forms SD647

    We'd like to print the Youth Program Form(s) as we do for the Youth information Form(s) from the Youth Flag Report.
    - We'd have two "print" buttons on the Youth Flag Report: "Print Youth Information Forms" and "Print Youth Program Forms"
    - We'd use the same "line in the sand" (i.e. ~~~) to include only text/responses above the line for the program form(s) being printed.

  15. 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.

  16. Separate Site Search Results for Images SD644

    In the site search, place all search results except images in one "tab" and images in another.

    We also have a lot of folders, especially ones titled, "Images" and "Resources," so we may want to have "tab" for folders too or rank them low in search results.

    This will help rank more important items higher in the search (e.g. a person's profile page above their profile image).

  17. Improve Text Search Results GH2835/2836/2913(590)

    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

    Include some fuzziness in search (e.g. Ben give results for Ben and Benjamin).

    Consider weighting content types (e.g. Books above events).

    We missed indexing text from the Page content type, so we added that. The removed the Image content type so images will not dwarf other types of content. We determined that that the search ranking was working as desired and described here.

    We’ll tackle integrating fuzziness and spelling/typos into another suggestion/project or two.

    If you find that a search result you expect is not as high in the search results as you think it should be, please send an email to info @mountaineers.org with:
    (1) URL from the search
    (2) URL from the item that you think should be ranked higher in the search
    (3) why you think this item should be ranked higher

  19. 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.

  20. Promo Codes: Bulk Discount SD332
