  1. 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.

  3. Need Feedback Survey for Lodge Stays SD634

    Right now there is no way for participants to submit feedback on their lodge stay. Create a web form survey like we do activities, courses, and events. On Mondays (or maybe Tuesdays to account for the holiday weekends), send a link to anyone who stayed at the lodge in the last seven days. Aggregate this feedback on the lodge pages.

  5. Clone Activities (was 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…

    We can already clone lodge stays and will develop a tool to clone activities. See the comments.

  7. Pre-orders & Backorders: Add Next Available Date GH2991

    - Add a Next Available Date to the Book content type.
    - Add it to the Acumen-Plone nightly sync: Inv_Product.Next_Release_Date
    - Sync it to Salesforce: Product.Next_Available_Date__c
    - Replace now hidden "Out of stock" text with: For pre-orders: "This book has not yet been released and will be available {Publication Date}."
    - For backorder: "This book is currently out-of-stock. We will have it back in stock by next available date."
    - Use it for "your credit card is about to expire" pre-order/backorder email alerts

  8. Clone Events SD585

    Add a feature to clone Events like we can do for Lodge Stays. This would be much lime a "recurring events" feature.

  9. On daily alert, display the day of the week GH3076

    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.

  10. Alerts & Notifications "Leave Blank for All Branches" GH3015

    For the "Branches" field change it so that leaving it blank is the same as having selected all of the branches in the list.

    Change the help text for Branches to: With these branches... (leave blank to choose all branches)

    Change the help text for Activities to: Of these types... (choose at least one to get notifications)

  11. Course Activity Data Export Improvement GH3028

    Investigate alternatives for the Course Activities Export. It takes several minutes to get the datatables view, because there are often several thousand records associated with the request. There may be more, but few options are:

    - Check how much overhead there is in Diazo processing of the markup? Avoiding that may be one reason that converting the main course roster view to be React-based helped so much. If that's correct you could possibly load this part of the page in an iframe that bypasses Diazo.

    - A bit off the wall... After clicking the "download" button, display a message (in…
