  1. Member Roles for Committee Pages

    When editing the committee roster, it would be nice if we could select/enter roles of different members so that when we check the box to display that member on the committee page, others can see those roles.

    For example, if my name shows up on the Photography Committee page, it just says "leader". It would be nice if it could say "activity coordinator and publicity" under my name. That way, visitors to the page would know to contact me for questions about those things. Limiting titles to Chair, Treasurer, Leader, etc. doesn't really tell people how we're involved.

  2. Allow Co-leaders and Mentored Leaders to be Notified of Participant Registration Changes

    We like giving the Primary Leader the option of being alerted when there is sign up activity on their hike. It would be great to offer this to Co-leaders and Mentored Leaders too.

    This is bit more complicated that it seems it should be, but we’re looking into what it will take to get it done.

    If we do this, you’ll only be able to have one co-leader and/or one mentored leader. Do you think that will be okay?

    Additionally and perhaps more importantly if you make someone who is a co-leader or mentored leader have Admin status on the roster they will be able to view Feedback for that activity. Very useful for co-leaders and mentor leaders

  3. Change Kitsap Branch Name to Peninsula Branch GH2736 SDtbd

    Long time members of the branch did not think Kitsap captured the true nature of the branch's membership, so voted to rename to Peninsula branch. I expect some increase in membership from the Olympic Peninsula, where more people will feel like this is "their" branch. I do not think this will be significant in the overall scale of membership, of which Kitsap is a small part.

  4. No leader permission requests without valid waiver.

    If a participant making a request to sign up for a trip does not have a valid waiver, the system should inform the requester directly to resolve the matter before sending the request to the trip leader. As it is now, the system relays the request to the trip leader without regard to waiver status, resulting in a waste of time and effort when a requester's waiver is not valid.

  5. Improve file upload and download: bulk/mutiple files and drag-and-drop

    Allow multiple files to be "bulk" upload and download from a folder. Allow drag-and-drop to upload one or more files to a folder.

  6. Add "Slider Images" to Branch Home Pages SD385

    Allow branch admins to add images to their branch 's page that will be "slider images" similar to the main mountaineers.org home page. They will be images only (no special text, boxes or links).

    Some thought this was part of the branch home page design, but that was not perfectly clear in specification.
