  1. Limiting amount of text for "Featured Authors" on the homepage GH2795

    On the books homepage (https://www.mountaineers.org/books), some authors will have a lot more text show up on the "Feature Authors" portlet. Can we limit that to only display a maximum of 10 lines (or whatever looks the nicest), perhaps with a "Read More" link to expand the text if needed

  2. Display discounted pricing for Books/Activities

    Right now, if you change the price of a book or activity for a "sale", there is no way to distinguish that new sale price for the past regular price. The ask is to create a way to clearly call out discounted prices.

  3. Change Author Contributor Types to Match Onyx

    The contributor types that the website can accept and that Onyx accepts differ. This requires the team to select a certain role to sync to Onyx and then change it to sync to the website. The reason they are different is so that the website contributors reads "Photography by __" vs. "Photographer __'. If we can separate the way that Acumen syncs with the website from what is presented on the web page we should be able to use the roles Onyx requires.

  4. Updating the Book Details Page "Reviews" Tab GH2889

    Under a product page (e.g. https://www.mountaineers.org/books/books/explore-europe-on-foot-your-complete-guide-to-planning-a-cultural-hiking-adventure) there’s the “Review” tab that we are currently pulling from Goodreads. We now want to replace the Goodreads Review with the Reviews data in Acumen: Prod Marketing -> Descriptive -> Review.

  5. Book Purchase - Customize Confirmation Email

    Right now, the order confirmation sequence to purchasing books is as follows:

    1. Customer gets one immediately from Plone/Website/Saleforce that is generic and not book specific.
    2. Acumen sends an email automatically and sends an update.
    3. Acumen then sends out an order with the tracking number.

    Ideally step #1 could be more specific to books if they purchased a book vs. programs.

  6. Adding a Section/Tab to Books for Awards GH3073

    An idea we had some time ago was creating an Awards tab, much like "Descriptions" "Reviews" "Video" -- but at the time we decided against it because we thought it would be best to highlight it in the Description field anyways.

    But now that the feed to our 3rd parties are being more restrictive on the level of HTML we can have, the above argument against holds a lot less ground.

  7. Adding a "Related Items" section for additional information on Book product page GH3074

    Add a new tab alongside "Description" "Video" and "Reviews" for related items, especially blogs.

    The idea is to present complementary content when the product page is the landing page, esp. considering the % of our page sessions are from New Users.

    Aside from links to our blog, other items could be downloads, related events* -- it's also why I don't want to just call this tab "Blogs," as it doesn't necessarily reflect the full scope.

    *Though personally, I think this should be its own tab, and would be pulled automatically from Author Events calendar.

    I thought about just linking whatever…
