General Feedback

This forum is for you to share ideas and exchange feedback with Mountaineers members, guests, volunteers, and leadership. You may vote for or comment on any idea and will be notified of its status changes. Your feedback helps us prioritize projects and improvements for our organization.

We receive lots of great ideas, so please search the forum before adding a new one. If your idea is not yet in our forum, please post it with a simple title and an explanation, and how it could benefit The Mountaineers. If you want to learn more about what we've already implemented and what is up next, please visit our Technology Blog. Thank you for your participation!

Please note that all our courses, events, trips, course-related activities, clinics, seminars, and lodge stays have forms for you to give feedback when you participate. You’ll get an email reminder to do so just after the activity. If your feedback is of urgent nature it may be best to contact the chair of the committee that sponsors that program directly. Not sure who the chair is? Visit our Committee Chair Directory or contact our Member Services Team at info@mountaineers.org.

If there was a safety incident or near miss, you will have the opportunity for submitting an Incident Report after submitting activity feedback. You may also use the Incident Report button on the activity detail page (from your My Activities page) or contact our Safety Committee directly at safety@mountaineers.org.

If you reached this site wanting to report problem behavior or harassment by another member, please submit a Behavior Complaint Form.

  1. Add a Calendar View of the My Activities Page SD411

    As a logged in member or guest, allow me choose a calendar view/display of the My Activities page where I can see all of my activities on a calendar and subscribe to an iCal feed of my activities and events so that I can better manage my schedule.

    NOTES:
    Ideally we'd continue to have one My Activities page and add "buttons" to toggle between the "List" and "Calendar" views, even though they may be two different pages/links.

  2. Organizations, Online Invoicing & Contracts SD562++

    Set up organization in our website so that we can sync them to the existing organizations in SF. This will allow us to connect contacts, activities & courses (Mountain Workshops), events (Program Center Clients) and lodge stays (Outdoor Center Groups & Clients) to them for better tracking. We'll be able to add invoices that the organization contact can pay online, taking advantage of our existing online payment process and Salesforce reporting.

  3. Add Ability to Exclude Instructors from Getting Registration Conflict Check for a Course Activity SD667

    Make it so instructors can be excluded from conflict checking but not participants. For example for pool play sessions for sea kayaking course we need instructors for afternoon and morning sessions but students we only want to be able to sign up for one session.

  7. Additional Roles for Course Rosters

    For Course rosters people can be associated with one of a hard-coded list of roles and can be advertised as a public contact for the course in that role. We are proposing that the list of roles be extended to better support current common practices. Specifically, we propose adding the following roles:

    Co-leader
    Assistant Leader
    Content Manager

    The Co-leader and Assistant Leader roles are self explanatory. Larger courses may want to show multiple leaders as public contacts but still be able to identify a single person as the primary leader.

    The Content Manager is the person who manages registration and…

  8. Add a menu option for "My Committees"

    Currently users can get to their committee pages by going to "My Profile" and clicking on the appropriate link. This works fine for experienced website users. The logical place to look for your committees is through the "My Branch" page, but this is tedious and requires scrolling through all the committees and subgroups in the branch. Please add a menu option for "My Committees" that will take all users directly to a list of their committees (or even to the section of their profile with the links).

  9. Favorites: Flag interest on an activity

    I would like to see a feature in the website to let me flag to myself that I am interested in signing up for an activity, that I can return to with a filter and decide whether to sign up or let it slip. Personally, I would not care if my interest flags were visible to others.

  10. Show past activities on a route

    When looking at a route, you can see future activities as well as trip reports. I'd like to see a list of past activities, along with their completion status and leader name (whether they posted a trip report or not).
    This would make it easier to contact past trip leaders to ask them about conditions, etc. as well as to get a sense of when people typically use the route.

    Thanks!

  11. When Copying a Blog Post Do NOT Copy Comments GH2497

    When copying a blog post do not copy any associated comments. Sometime we copy a blog post as the starting point for a new blog post. One example is our "10 Essential Questions" blog.

  12. Creating book/product bundles GH2996

    I'd like to return the ability to create bundles in Plone, e.g. Day Hiking bundle.

    Right now, the problem with the old way of doing bundles are a) Acumen -> Plone inventory would always show 0, a1) "faking" inventory has no way to stop if 1 or more book in bundle runs out, and b) a pain to create royalties/requires too many staff to set up a single product

  13. 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

  15. Promo Codes: Offer Discount for Books Added via a Registration Process SD425

    As a person registering for a course, course activity, trip activity or an event, give me a discount on any of the books that I added to my shopping cart from the book page shown at the end of the registration process. When I'm viewing the recommended books page, during checkout it will show me the amount of discount I'll receive.

    If I have a member promo code in the same cart, whichever promo code is greater will apply (the better deal). This book promo code will apply even if I register for the course at a different time.

  17. Make it possible to add merchandise when renewing or buying a membership or gift membership GH2754

    It'd be neat to be able to buy a mountaineers hat or pint glass when joining and/or buying a gift membership for someone.

    You might also like section should show up on Join the Mountaineers page in addition to showing on the shopping cart.

  18. Add Requested Info field to Courses GH2756

    Add an additional field on courses that prompts students to provide info when signing up for a course. For summer camps this can allow us to collect T-shirt size or could be used for questions about kayak rentals for kayak students etc.
