This will be super helpful for mobile users trying to manage their rosters. Right now after adding some to the roster it is very hard to scroll down and Save them. This should be done for the Add Person to Courses, Activities and Event registration windows.2 votes
We added a “Save” button at the top of every “Add person to roster” and “Edit” popup so that it is quicker and easier to save a record when on the top few field must be completed for the add or edit being done.
There needs to be a better way to handle closed activity sign-ups such as SIG-only outings. When hunting for activities, it is frustrating how many of the outings are actually closed events for a set group of people and not open to the public. Surely there's a way to remove these closed events from the publicly searchable activities board.2 votes
Schedule quarterly meetings of all hiking committee leaders to coordinate the scheduling of hikes to match demonstrated demand. .
We need to avoid both too few and too many hikes of the same type, to avoid both long waiting lists and the need to cancel for lack of signup.2 votes
Add a short piece of text indicating that instructors can register at any time for field trips on the field trip listing or near register portal2 votes
Text now shows on the course listing and in the “Find Instructor Opportunities” faceted search showing when reg opens to public and that instructor registration is open now.
Add a warning message for leaders that have a conflict with an activity they are adding at the point of choosing the route/place and date(s).2 votes
Bring back the ability to post informal weekly activities like the Volleyball, Greenlake Walk and Evening Outdoor In-line Skate acitvities we used to be able to post on the old web site.2 votes
Right now last year's students can't see the current course materials. It'd be cool to have this linger from course to the next upcoming course so 2nd and 3rd students would have the most up to date information. You could have a folder that contains archive materials but this would be an area that is always up to date, or maybe you could have the option of whether your course template has this evergreen course materials folder or whether leaders want it on a year by year basis. Leaders and admins of courses any thoughts?2 votes
Course materials can now be more easily shared year to year. Leaders can now also delete and archive materials from their committee area and course material folders
Right now the download roster brings everyone on the list, it would be cool to be able to select a portion of the roster and download this portion for management for all rosters (committee, course and activity). - Suggestion from Focus Groups2 votes
You can now pick whatever part of the roster you want to download!
When I mouse over a course activity, display a "tool-tip/infotip/hint" containing the leaders name or the activity summary next to the cursor.2 votes
We added more information about lectures and field trip activities to the Course Requirements tab of the Course Details page. Information included title, activity dates, registration open/close dates, availability, and leader.
Can we create an auto-save for some of the online forms so users can save their work on route-place and activity creation forms and come back to it later if they haven't filled all the required fields?2 votes
All required fields expect for the title and summary have default values so leaders only have to fill in a couple fields before saving.
Pro ti! If you save your route/place and you navigate away from the page you can find what you created by searching using the magnify glass search field in the top right hand corner
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.
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.
Make Phone number required on the Join page. This is key for leaders to be able to get in touch with their participants.2 votes
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. .2 votes
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.
Have a place on our site about our honorary members.2 votes
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.2 votes
This was completed and launched on 12/8. If you have further suggestions about this tool please continue to list on the feedback site.
It would be nice if we could recommend books other than those published by the Mountaineers. For the Naturalists' annual course, they use a book that is better than what the Mountaineers has published. For the Photography Committee, there are really only two instruction books published by the Mountaineers. We should be able to add any book listed on Amazon to better help our students.1 vote
The recommended and required reading sections of various types of content on our website are specifically for books, maps and merchandise that we can ship from our warehouse.
For other books, etc. information can be added to the rich text sections of the content item. For formatting and more info, please see our Publications Style Guide, https://www.mountaineers.org/volunteer/leader-resources/publications-style-guide#references.
The new Daily alert feature is nice, but it would be more helpful if it displayed the day of the week in the message. Most people are available only on certain days.1 vote

As firstname.lastname@example.org, I get an email when a participant answers "yes" to a "was there a safety concern or incident" question on a feedback survey about whether there was a safety concern on the activity, course or event. The participant's comments along with some meta data about the activity, course or event and the participant along with the participant's comments will be included in the email.1 vote

As an activity participant, I can report an incident, so that I can better communicate the details of an incident to the Safety Committee like the leader does.1 vote
