There should be a way to preview an activity before submitting it. Currently one saves and then edits (submitted by Henry Romer during Focus Groups).1 vote
Leaders can change their trip to Private state which is a “review” state. When an activity is private it will still show up in a leader’s My Activities area but not in the search area for the general public.
We chose to make activities automatically published because that is what most leaders requested, especially because you can specify open and close registration dates. And you can always go in and edit your activity.
One of the quickest ways to match organization needs with membership talent is to identify what skills are needed and what skills potential volunteers are willing to offer. When such postings are put on the website on the "Get Involved as a Volunteer" webpage (https://www.mountaineers.org/volunteers/get-involved-as-a-volunteer), we have YET not to have someone come forward and offer to help out. If your profile page allowed you to report your interests and skills, The Mountaineers could more specifically target recruitment efforts to people who are most likely to like the work being offered. It's a fundamental part of ensuring that volunteer-driven organizations keep their "labor" pool fresh and excited - by creating work volunteers WANT to do.

President Dan Lauren created a trip survey mechanism that operates through a different platform than Mountaineers.org but which provides invaluable information for Leaders about how their trips were viewed. It would be great to make this information easier for Leaders to see on Mountaineers.org rather than another platform with a different log-in. This could then be expanded to courses and allowing committees to analyze feedback from students efficiently through the website as well.1 vote

calendar: Allow admins to see events that are pending. State seems to only show published events. It is very difficult to find an event once it has been submitted for review.1 vote
Already works as described in idea.
When a feedback item or idea has been submitted display its id number for reference1 vote
I just did some investigating and it doesn’t look like there is a way to see those for easy reference but they are listed in the url if you click on the item. ie this idea is in the forum 273688 and has a unique reference number 6803077
This is the only web-edit tool I can think of that doesn't have a REVIEW
option. Unless I'm missing something, I can only SAVE or CANCEL from EDIT
mode. The requires many edits - and the system has been sluggish this afternoon.
Please add "REVIEW" to the wish list. :-)1 vote
The web system we chose for mountaineers.org is a modern content management system which uses the different statuses of private, pending review and published. The private setting is similar to a review button where you can review what you just made but it isn’t available as published material to the public.
Sites can be sluggish or fast for a wide variety of reasons but please let us know if there is a specific action you are regularly doing on the website that is consistently taking a long time.

It would be great to have web forms available to leaders so we can create course applications, branch surveys, run branch elections, etc directly on the website using the member's login1 vote
On the "My Activities" page there's a "Review Participation Notes" blue button. It seems like these Participation Notes should have their own section on the left sidebar, similar to "My Feedback". Or it could be combined with the "My Feedback" page and use the same date filtering etc.0 votes
When making changes to the website, we have to consider the wide implications of reorganizing information. Participation notes are only available to leaders and group administrators – participants cannot see participation notes created by leaders. The participation notes are designed as an investigative tool for leaders for an incident, accident, or behavioral issue. It’s included on the My Activities page so leaders can easily see successful trip history as a way to screen participants pre trip. Leaders should only look at the participation notes when a red flag was noted in the past or a person’s trip status includes ‘needs improvement. Due to the special use case of this information and the small pool of people able to access this information, we feel the participant notes to not warrant a special tab, and we are going to keep the current structure at this time.

Can the colors on "hidden" menu options be changed? The red text on blue background is almost impossible to read.0 votes
On calendar views, we have white text on colored backgrounds with the background color denoting the state.
Activities can be scheduled for a route/place that has not been published, but only the author and staff can see it. All others will get an error. The more complete the content, the quicker we can review and publish. If you have an immediate need, please feel free to call our Member Services Team.
Loosen up roster visibility so I can see rosters of other committees, branches. - from Focus Group0 votes
We’ve not seen any interest in this at this time so cancelling this item at this time.
Reduce number of clicks to access specific class roster- maybe allow users to "favorite" the classes they need to access often (esp for committee members who are not registered for the course in question). - Suggestion from Adam from Focus groups0 votes
We have improved our new site wide search. Please check out the new search filters and let us know if there is anything else that would be useful.
