  2. Add bulk update feature for Event "Attended?" checkbox GH3706

    Like we do for email, download, and print, add a Bulk Update Attended All|Selected button that checks or unchecks the Attended? box for all roster records or just the ones selected. When clicked, ask the user if they want to check or uncheck the Attended? box. This will make record-keeping easier for those who choose to use printed sign-in sheets.

  3. Link event tickets to a salesforce revenue campaign as they are purchased GH3710

    The fundraising team would love it if there was a way to link event ticket purchases to a specific campaign as they came in so we can track revenue and ensure it is assigned to a specific fundraising effort and communicate with accounting if it needs to be assigned to a specific funding need. This would be similar to how we set up donation pages to assign to a specific campaign.

  4. Month/Week/Day View Duplicated at Bottom of Calendar

    Can we duplicate the month/week/day strip from the top of the calendar down at the bottom of the calendar? It would be handy to have it at the bottom as well, especially with the forward/backwards arrows so we can switch months when we are looking at the bottom of the calendar. Either that or an infinite scroll to go from month to month. Or both!

  5. Automate Seattle PC Lobby TV Display

    Set up a way to automatically display information on the Seattle Program Center lobby television/monitor based on event data from Salesforce, a per-designed template, and a set of chosen images.

  6. Portrait Photo Orientation

    This is for the tech forum and website.

    Whenever I want to upload one of the awesome pictures from one of my outings, I am limited only to landscape view. For some reason, the website automatically flips it to landscape if I upload a portrait view.

  7. Road and parking conditions at trailhead

    This idea is to address via the Mountaineers website a forum or better way of organizing info on trailhead parking, access road conditions, and trail conditions, the concept would be to have an easy convenient way for trip leaders and/or participants (plus any Mountaineers member doing a private trip) to have a central location where they would post information on the status of the trailhead access road, and how much snow or mud there is on the trail, which is always a question mark during the Spring and early Summer.

    Currently the only method I am aware of is to…

    Thanks for sharing your idea. We currently encourage our members to share trip reports after their trips, and they are prompted to report on things like trail and road conditions. All of our routes and places also link to the websites for local land managers, which often have the most updated information on these specific locations. We would love to see more trip reports on our website, and will continue to encourage our members to do so, and we encourage the use of the linked resources already available to assess conditions.

  8. Pre-populate times on cloned events with those from the event being cloned GH3276

    When cloning an event, pre-populate the event times and setup times with the times from the event being cloned. But keep them editable. Normally, a monthly meeting is going to be at the same time. Pre-populating will reduce the chance of entry errors as well. I caught several of my own mistakes.

  9. Tweak to Volunteer RSVP button GH3343

    Having a button for volunteers to RSVP is great, however it's quite confusing for those wishing to attend the event even if there is a link or button in the text for them to go to EventBrite.

    My suggestion...when we're setting up an event RSVP and choosing Volunteer instead of participant, it would be more helpful if the button it creates in the right sidebar says RSVP as Volunteer instead of just RSVP. The text above the button should also reflect that it's to volunteer. See my examples.

  10. Improve Event Edit Form GH2777/2805/2760

    (1) Re-order, update and add fields on the event edit form to make it easier for volunteers to complete.
    (2) Add validation that at least one "room" was selected for the Tacoma Program Center.
    (3) Set the Event Setup and Departure datetimes to default to the Start datetime - 30 min and End datetime + 30 min when adding an activity to the Seattle and Tacoma Program Center calendars. For editing an event, "remember" the time difference between Setup and Start datetime AND between End and Departure datetime and use those as defaults for editing the Start and/or End datetime.

  13. When adding a reservation to SPC calendar, add an "ability to open/close SPC" checkbox GHPR2742

    Facility and Volunteers don't have a clear system for ensuring there is a person on site who can open and close the facility. Under the current system, staff must manually follow-up with each leader or make assumptions about event overlaps and if there is going to be someone that can open/close the facility.

    I'd like to see a required checkbox on the add event page that asks:

    "Will there be someone that is familiar and able to open and close the program center during this event?" If no, or unsure, please contact the facility staff at spc@mountaineers.org"

    We then…

  14. Show Guests in Event RSVP Portlet : GH2474

    Right now you can't see your guests in the event register portlet which means its hard to know how to cancel/add until you open.

  16. Note major jewish, christian and muslim holidays on online calendar to promote inclusivity and avoid double booking

    It'd be great if the online reservation calendar noted major holidays like rosh hashanah, yom kippur, Eid Al-Fitr, easter etc so that volunteers are less likely to schedule activities on courses on those evenings. This would go a long way towards building an inclusive culture at The Mountaineers.

  17. Program Center Event "Add Activity" Buttons GH3550

    Make adding an activity at a Program Center easier by adding buttons on the event details page that appear after the event is published. These buttons will start the activity scheduling process for the appropriate program center route/place using the event start and end dates.

  18. Improve Event Detail Page View GH2927

    Improve the event detail page view so that it is more like those for other views like activities, courses and lodge stays. There will be some small re-organization of basic information (e.g. remove phone number), the addition of a tabbed nav area--Location (map and address), Roster (for carpool organization), and Details (mostly info for volunteers)--and showing recommended reading.

  19. Clone Events SD585

  20. Sell Tickets to Events on our Website GH3343/SD669

    We have EventBrite as a “workaround.” It does cost money (fees) and some extra staff time (which can be equated to money). Once implemented, we will have a more fully integtared shopping cart and bet better able to serve and engage with our members and guests.
