  1. Add Email Alerts & Notifications Preferences to My Profile SD23

    This could be allowing people to request an email notification for an activity or course when it becomes available. It could include notifications to committee chairs when leaders list activities sponsored by that committee. Please describe below what you'd specifically like to see as far as email notifications go that would help you sign up for the activities you want or help you manage your committee etc.

    April Leader Survey showed interest in:

    1. Ability to receive a calendar reminder when registration is opening for an activity

    2. Ability to receive a reminder notification about your trip this weekend

  3. Add "Calendar View" to the activity search SD501

    Add "Calendar View" to the activity search so that people looking for a certain type of activity but have time limitations can quickly see what activities would be valid.

    EX: I am busy every other weekend and would like to look for evening scrambles, currently I have to go through all of the listed scrambles. Where if there was a Calendar view to the search results I would be able to see the available scrambles quickly.

  6. Need Secondary Emergency Contact when Spouse on trip GH2828

    The Member Profile allows you to provide an emergency contact. This works well, but if it is a spouse or partner, and both of you go on the same trip (as happened on a recent backpack I led), that contact is not useful. Leaders end up needing to request a second contact. (My co-leader wanted this from me; the problem hadn't occurred to me.) For such situations, it would be helpful to have a second contact in the system.

    My suggestion is to provide the option to enter a second emergency contact and phone number, and where it is provided…

  7. Keep a Waitlist for Lodge Stays SD555/560

    Waitlists for lodge stays are complicated and challenging both because of the potential for one person to make a reservation for multiple people and the number of nights for which they may wish register.

    It may be best to keep a waitlist separate from the roster for each lodge stay and email the entire list if any amount of availability opens. Then it's back to a first come, first served basis. This is a "notify me if space becomes available" rather than our traditional waitlist functionality.

  8. Allow Leaders to Choose Activity Template or Route/Place Image for Activities SD641

    When scheduling an activity, allow the leader to choose to use one of the the route/place images, the activity template image, or an image from their local computer.

    Notes:

    - Currently when scheduling a trip (standalone) activity, the one form the route/place is the default and the leader may choose to replace that with one from their computer. For course activities, the default image is from the activity template, and the leader may choose to replace that with one from their computer.

    - Many of our Routes & Places have an "Images" folder where we store images submitted by our…

  9. Lodge-specific Sign-in Sheets (aka Print Rosters) SD648/649/650

    For a two-night stay, what we have may be enough, but for longer stays a matrix-style sign-in sheet might be better. Or it may be better if we have a different printable sign-in sheet for each lodge.

  10. Enable a script to create lodge stays and activiites in bulk SD663

    As an admin, I need to create a complex set of lodge stay events for each weekend of the winter season. Doing this via the UI is error prone, time consuming, and painful. Provide a way that I can write a script in powershell, python, php, etc that will create the appropriate entities in the backend database. I'm willing to generate entities in xml, json, or the flavor of your choice.

    If you can't give me the ability to write a script to do, then consider providing a script that does the work needed.

    The script I want will do…

  11. Activity Seach Option: Meet Prerequisites SD640

    Have an option to filter out activities you are not eligible. For example, I am a glacier travel graduate who can do certain climbs, but not all. It would be neat if I could filter out the activities that I do not have the proper badge for!

  14. Calendar Setup and Breakdown Times Autopopulate GH2760

    SET UP TIMES and BREAKDOWN TIMES should auto-populate to mirror the event date as a default (at least for staff entering events, if it can be permission-based). Default should be 15 minutes on either side of event start and end. Thank you.

  15. Add a Calendar View of the My Activities Page SD411

    As a logged in member or guest, allow me choose a calendar view/display of the My Activities page where I can see all of my activities on a calendar and subscribe to an iCal feed of my activities and events so that I can better manage my schedule.

    NOTES:
    Ideally we'd continue to have one My Activities page and add "buttons" to toggle between the "List" and "Calendar" views, even though they may be two different pages/links.

  17. Use "Age Group" Radio Buttons Instead of "Age" for Lodge Reservations SD637

    Is it better to use radio buttons for the age groups [i.e. one for Adults (age 14+) and another for Youth (age 13-)] when reserving a lodge stay than asking for actual age? What are the pros and cons?

    Using radio buttons is better when one person is making a lodge reservation for another and does not know their age. I suspect with will happen a lot, especially for lodge admins who add hosts and other volunteers, as well as people who might bring a friend.

  19. Avy terrain rating GH2743

    Add an avy terrain category rating to each route/place based on the highest risk area. Eg our Nordic Touring books list avalanche danger as "none, low, moderate, etc" The idea is that any route/place that has an NWAC link also has an avy rating so students can make informed decisions. (came from both snowshoe and scramble summits)

  20. Show Events in a Course's "Course Requirements" Tab GH2827

    We often have graduation celebrations at the end of a course. These are just events to which the committee, leaders, instructors, students, graduates and former graduates are invited to attend. It would be great if they could be RSVP-style events that appear in the course's "Course Requirements" tab. That would save having to "double list" by listing an activity that is really not needed an would also need to be closed.

    Implementation Note: Add a field to the Event add/edit form to choose one or more Course Templates to list the event on courses within that template and where the…
