General Feedback

This forum is for you to share ideas and exchange feedback with Mountaineers members, guests, volunteers, and leadership. You may vote for or comment on any forum idea and will be notified of status changes to that idea. Your feedback helps us prioritize projects and improvements for our organization. We receive lots of great ideas, so please search the forum first before adding a new one. If your idea is not yet in our forum, please post it with a simple title and an explanation of your idea and how it benefits The Mountaineers. If you want to learn more about what has already been developed and what is up next, please visit our Technology Blog. Thank you for your participation!

Please note that all our courses, events, trips and course-related activities have feedback forms so that you give feedback for every activity in which you participate. You’ll get an email reminder to do so just after the activity. If your feedback is of urgent nature it may be best to contact the chair of the committee that sponsors that program directly. Not sure who the chair is? Contact our Member Services Team at info@mountaineers.org.

If there was a safety incident or near miss, you will have the opportunity for submitting an Incident Report after submitting activity feedback. You may also use the Incident Report button on the activity detail page (from your My Activities page) or contact our Safety Committee directly at safety@mountaineers.org.

If you reached this site wanting to report problem behavior by another member or harassment. Please submit a Behavioral Complaint Form.

  2. Include all fields in the CSV download after an activity closes GH2929

    As an admin or a leader, I would like to see all fields in the CSV download so that I can better manage courses and activities. Also reorder the fields so that like information is grouped.

  3. Improve Layout of Bottom Portlets GH2806

    When we have more than three bottom portlets, their layout arrangement goes "bonkers." We'd like to arrangements to work like those in the attached example.

  4. Update Gift Memberships Pricing Portlets GH2926

    Update portlet text for Gift Memberships to show new price. Right now on the gift membership page and on the next page it shows the original price for memberships, not the discounted gift price, and it should probably show the regular price crossed out with the gift price in red. So for the holidays (December) it will be 25% off, and for any time earlier it will be 15% off.

  5. Create a badge for New Leader Mentors

    Would help prospective leaders and activity committee members identify willing mentors without spamming the entire leader roster.

  7. Instructors for seminar/clinics GH2883

    I just noticed there's no option for an "instructor" role in the seminar/clinic template. Can we add this? Seminars/clinics are often course-like in that they have instructors.

    thanks!

  8. Comma delimited roster email address copy GH2884

    Under "copy email addresses" in the roster, could we also have two separate ones, comma delimited and semi-colon delimited?

  9. Allow summary text to wrap around the photo on the front page of a listing GH2886

    Currently it often happens that some of the text of the summary for an event or seminar listing ends up covered by the photo. Can we make it possible for the text to wrap around the photo? It's very frustrating to have to go back and forth and tweak the summary text so that it isn't covered by the photo!

  10. 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

  11. 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!

  12. Make Event, Activity and Course feedback fields function the same way GH2762/3035

    All of our courses, events and activities have feedback forms but if you have a specific form you'd like to send to your participants we can make a change on the backend in salesforce. Unfortunately when we do this the field shows up differently on Events, Activities and Courses. We'd like it to be the same and clarify whether no feedback is collected or whether its being collected via salesforce/other (usually a link to survey gizmo).

  14. Add Email Notification for Comments SD642

    Make it so comments on trip reports, blog posts, etc. send an email to the person who posted the trip report so they can respond and have a dialogue about conditions. We'll also need a way to opt out of this email.

    Note: If the commenter shared their profile their name is a link that will provide their email address.

  15. Course-to-Activity Roster Management SD440

  16. Sell Tickets to Events on our Website SD669

    We have EventBrite as a “workaround.” It does cost money (fees) and some extra staff time (which can be equated to money). Once implemented, we will have a more fully integtared shopping cart and bet better able to serve and engage with our members and guests.

  17. Make ALL Text in theLeft Navigation Column White GH1691

    The red (private), yellow (pending) and purple (shard with committee) are difficult to read on a light blue background and are distracting. Make all the text in the left navigation column white, no matter its state.

    Not: We'll keep the colors in the folder contents view.

  19. Web forms and surveys integrated into the website GH1674

    It would be great to have web forms available to leaders so we can create course applications, branch surveys, run branch elections, etc directly on the website using the member's login

    We’ve recently made a bit of progress using these for feedback surveys, safety incident reports, and equivalency and leader applications.

    It will take quite a bit more work to make these available for use by a broader audience. If you are interested in using these forms, please send an email to info@mountaineers..org.

  20. Email Reminder for Activities, Courses and Events About to Open for Registration SD509

    As a site user, allow me to choose to get an email the day before an activity, course or event opens so that I get a reminder to register for an activity or course for which I plan to register.

    It would be ideal to add a checkbox along with "Send me an email reminder the day before this opens for registration." to the registration portlet where the the opening date is displayed. We're currently thinking a new role on the roster may be the best way to accomplish this.
