  3. Print Youth Program Forms SD647

    We'd like to print the Youth Program Form(s) as we do for the Youth information Form(s) from the Youth Flag Report.
    - We'd have two "print" buttons on the Youth Flag Report: "Print Youth Information Forms" and "Print Youth Program Forms"
    - We'd use the same "line in the sand" (i.e. ~~~) to include only text/responses above the line for the program form(s) being printed.

  4. Co-leader and Mentored Leader Activity Roster Automation GH2494

    For adding to only (not editing) an activity team roster record, if the role is "Mentored leader" or "Co-leader," automatically check the "Admins" and "Show as contact" boxes.

  5. Branch Council Roster Positions GH2746

    Please create positions specific to branch rosters:
    Branch Chair
    Branch Vice-chair
    Branch Co-chair
    Branch Secretary
    Branch Treasurer
    Branch Officer
    Member

    Note: "Member" is for branches whose committee chairs regularly attend branch council meetings but don't have a branch officer role (so its important we keep this) Thanks!

    Completed Aug 2021.

    Notes/Questions
    - I saw “Content Manager” used, so I added that to the list.
    - Since “Members” are described as Committee Chairs, should we add “Committee Chair” to the list? Would that be better/more correct? If so, do we keep “Member”?
    - Each committee has a new field called, “Committee Type” with three choices: Committee (the default), Branch, and Board of Directors (for the Board of Directors “committee” only).
    - For each of the branches, you’ll need to first edit the committee and choose “Branch” for the “Committee Type” field and then edit the rosters to choose the correct “branch” position for each person.

  6. Improve Roster Functionality: Badge Rosters SD584

    Make sure there is pagination and the ability to search on large badge rosters. We'd also like the ability to download rosters. Need to be able to bulk update expiration date. Also need to fix the roster download function.

  9. Make field trip/lecture instructors push to course rosters SD381

    Right now we have a lot of instructors who are just added or sign up to a single field trip roster. Unfortunately because they aren't added to the course roster they aren't available for recruiting via our mega course template roster for future field trips/lectures that particular year or in future years.

    Also having the course show up in your My Courses & Programs is helpful for instructors who want a quick link to upcoming field trips for them to volunteer for. This is particularly important for the many day courses like basic, scrambling, sea kayaking etc.

  10. Comma delimited roster email address copy GH2884

    Under "copy email addresses" in the roster, could we also have two separate ones, comma delimited and semi-colon delimited?

  12. Committee roster updates based on activity level

    One of the things were trying to do right now is clean up the roster, lots of old info there. Any chance those can be self updating fields? For example the scramble standard says leaders have to do at least one trip every 2 years. Something similar could work for instructors too.

    We added the ability to download badges for all on a committee roster, so there is enough data for a “real human” to review and make decisions about a leader’s status. This is better than a costly automated system that could accidentally remove a person from a roster.

  13. Offered Status Deadline - Transparent date/time ~Salesforce

    Add specific date/time in offer email for the five-day cut-off. It currently says "5 days" but participants often want a specific time as to when they will be moved off.

    This will help us better justify when a person is moved from the offered status and create more transparency in the process.

    Current Email:

    Congratulations! You were on the waitlist for ACTIVITY to take place on DATE, and a spot has just opened up! You have five days from now to accept this offer.

    If you would like to accept this offer, login to your accounthttp://www.mountaineers.org/profile, and…

  14. When viewing roster (from yellow bar) include date of activity somewhere near the top GH2326

    Real helpful when I have multiple rosters for course-related activity. Example: Kayak Roll Course, with 3 associated pool sessions. I can easily get confused as to which one I am working on at the time. Right now, all three look identical. If dated would show up while in the roster editing screen, then I would instantly be able to verify which one is open.

  15. Fully integrated Roster Management for Courses with multiple activities, and sections to complete to graduate.

    Currently for a Course with multiple required activities one must download multiple CSV files and have the skill to basically develop a one time database and queries to track all students and who has completed what.

    It would seem like the software provide would have reporting capabilities and modules that could be user facing to avoid this by using the source database.

    We already have the desired functionality. There are “Review” links to everyone’s name on the course roster. Visit https://www.mountaineers.org/volunteers/leader-resources/schedule-a-course-clinic-or-seminar/schedule-a-course-clinic-or-seminar#manage-rosters to learn more.

    If there is concern about all students registering for required field trips, be sure that all course activities are listed and open for registration when the course opens for registration. This way participants are prompted to choose activities when they register before getting to the checkout page.

  16. Replace Roster CSV (download), Copy, Print Feature GH1578

    The "TableTools" plug-in that we're using is now retired and it used Flash which is not available on all devices. We'll replace it with a newer "Buttons" plug-in that uses HTML5.

    We upgraded to the new download plug-in and still have the same three functions: copy, csv and print.

  17. Improve search functionality in the Add Person to Roster field

    Improve the search capabilities of the lookup field when you are using the "Add Person to Roster" field. Let’s say I’m looking at an activity and I want to add a person to the roster. I click the Roster option near the top of the window then click the button to add a person. A data entry form then appears. When I click in the name window the options for what I can type are extremely limited. If I type the name of a person the way they themselves have told me it is spelled, very often there is no…

  18. Roster Management - Canceling after registration closes GH1782

    Currently if registration for an activity is closed and the leader cancels someone from the roster, the next person from the waitlist is automatically added to the roster. To avoid this the total capacity of the trip has to be reduced before canceling someone. This is annoying as a leader and confusing for the participants if done wrong. Once registration is closed, the roster should be fixed unless manually edited.

    Roster management is now manual after registration has closed. We will be sending out a notification in leader lines but please pass along to your fellow leaders.

  19. Roster visibility change on the web site

    Some of us are wondering about a recent change on the web site. Activity rosters are no longer visible unless we're registered for that activity. Instead of displaying the roster, the web site now displays this text: " You must be registered for this activity to see the participants".

    This obviously enhances privacy for those members who wish it, but it also reduces visibility for those members who use the visibility to hang out together on Mountaineers activities.

    As you know, members already have the ability to mark their own profiles as private.

    I'm wondering if this privacy setting could…

  20. The rosters should be open to participants to see who is going on a trip--not only to carpool but just to know who is going. Why not?

    Currently the only ones who can see the rosters are leaders. Many times as a leader I've heard participants announce "I wish I had known you were going so we could have carpooled." Or many times after a trip people want to get together to socialize. We should protect personal information, but a list of names should not violate anyone's rights, should it?
