Importing pre-website launch activity and course history onto the new website.
This is actively being worked on right now as part of a planned post-launch enhancement. It was one of the most frequently heard requests immediately after launch of the new website. There are a number of technical barriers and issues to work through because of the intense integration of activity, membership, course, and roster data that exists in our system, but the developers are telling us we can expect them all to be worked through by mid-December at this point.
We imported ALL courses, clinics, seminars and trips. We were not able to import all lectures and field trips related to a course. This means you will be able to see your course information, but won’t necessarily see all of the course related activities. For example: You will see that you took Basic Climbing, but will not see the crevasse-rescue field trip associated with that course.\
We felt it was important to have as much information imported as possible, which means the data isn’t always the cleanest. Prior to 2003, we did not have a good way of digitally storing this information. Which means some dates may be wrong – it defaults to 1906 – and some details may be missing (because they weren’t previously required). The current state of your profile history is the best we can provide the the historical data on file.
All trip leader notes from the old website can be found here in a large excel file for leaders to use a reference.
Activity history is planned to come over on Monday Dec 8th.

It would be so helpful to have access to my pre April 2014 trip leader notes as I did not record them separately not knowing they would disappear with the launch of the new website. I hope the mid-Dec. timeframe can be kept as I have 6 Nordic ski trips for Jan - March I want to post at that time. In the past I just used to cut n paste and make any updates. So easy!
It would also really help to be notified when this happens. Thank you!
