General Feedback

This forum is for you to share ideas and exchange feedback with Mountaineers members, guests, volunteers, and leadership.

We receive lots of great ideas, so please search the forum first before adding a new one.

Please note that all our courses, events, trips, course-related activities, clinics, seminars, and lodge stays have feedback forms so that you give feedback for everything in which you participate.

  1. Feature Request - Expiring Badge Notification ~SFOnly

    As a user I would like to be notified prior to my badge expiring so that I can arrange to meet requirements or arrange for an extension given that I have a badge that has an expiration date. The problem to avoid is people losing their privileges without notice and being unpleasantly surprised.

    Then, when the expiration date is within 90 and 30 days from expiring:

    • A notification of what badge is about to expire and when will be sent to me (User) 90 days and 30 days prior to the expiration date.

    • A notification will be sent to the…

  2. Filters at top of site search results do not work as expected

    Enter text in site search bar in the header and hit enter. Results are shown with four buttons at top (Find Books, Find Events, Find Courses, Find Activities). Hit "Find Books" and the results are refreshed and show me things not related to what I searched for (not sticky to the search term I entered). Expected result is the search term result list is filtered to just books. See screenshots.

  3. First Nation Land Acknowledgement

    I recommend placing a First Nation land acknowledgement statement on the bottom of The Mountaineers webpages. As an organization, we should recognize the ancestors and current stewards of the lands we live, work, and recreate on. A great example of this is already on the Braided River website/webpages. https://www.braidedriver.org/

  5. In Stewardship Half Day template document the need for manual follow-up

    After completing two "Stewardship Half Day" activities the participant is expected to send an email to info@mountaineers.org requesting their Stewardship badge. This fact was documented in a one-time email sent to activity chairs and some activity leaders when the new template was launched in November, 2020 (see attached pdf) but does not appear to be documented anywhere else. Moreover, people who post Stewardship Half Day activities are expected to include the need for manual follow-up in their activity descriptions, but that also appears to have been mentioned only in the one-time November email. As a result, Stewardship Half Day activities…

  6. Add a link to native-land.ca in each routes & places description

    I'd love to have a sentence or two in each routes & places description that says something like "This place is the traditional land of Native peoples. Find out more about the Native tribes that have stewarded this land since time immemorial at native-land.ca."

  7. Salesforce opportunity acknowlegment automation GH2885 ~Salesforce

    I was dreaming about how to improve tracking donor communications and acknowledgements and came up with an idea.

    From a salesforce opportunity I would love to have the option to initiate acknowledgment and thank you communications directly from Salesforce. They come in two forms:

    1. Generating a thank you email to the donor directly from salesforce based off of a selected template (selected based on gift) with the ability to customize before sending. It is something I'm doing for almost every gift and it would be nice if this email was already linked to the donor and the opportunity as an…

  8. Highlight # of activities led / courses instructed in volunteer leader/instructor profiles

    "Game-ify" volunteer leader & instructor trips led & courses taught to encourage them to list more trips and volunteer more often as instructors.

    Update volunteer profiles so that a “star appears” around their profile picture for each trip they lead or for each time they participate as an instructor / leader in a field trip. When X number of stars have appeared then volunteers receive some sort of recognition, to be determined, . . . for example, . . .

    a. X stars – a Mountaineers Books coupon or a Starbucks card accompanied by a form thank you note (and…
