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 forum idea and will be notified of status changes to that idea. Your feedback helps us prioritize projects and improvements for our organization. We receive lots of great ideas, so please search the forum first before adding a new one. If your idea is not yet in our forum, please post it with a simple title and an explanation of your idea and how it benefits The Mountaineers. If you want to learn more about what has already been developed 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 feedback forms so that you give feedback for everything in which 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 Behavioral Complaint Form.

  1. 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.

  2. Recommended Reading for Events GH3551/SD583

    Show a list of the “recommended reading” when RSVPing for an event so that members and guests may more easily purchase books for events like BeWild and new book releases.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Warning message to leader if other trips scheduled in that area SD476 ~Salesforce

    For routes that can have multiple trips listed... Can I suggest a website change for those locations that allow multiple registrations, to possibly have some sort of a pop-up come up informing the leader something to the effect of

    "Yeah you are the only one currently registered for this location on your activity date" or

    "hmm -- you are now the Xth user registering for this location on on your activity date; please use your judgement about whether this would work"

  7. Convert Branch Dashboards to Google Data Studio

    With some new tools that allow us to automatically update a Google sheet from a Salesforce report and the tools available in Google Data Studio, we can convert the Branch Dashboards we built in Salesforce to Google Data Studio. This makes them easy to share with anyone who needs access without needing costly licenses.

  8. Add MountainQueers to Search

    Add MountainQueers as affinity group to green search bar, similar to how we have "Singles", "Families", etc. If possible make this an easier area to update for the future as we look to expand our affinity groups.

  9. Migrate Files to "The Cloud" ~IT-Infrastructure

    We have internal systems we can move to a cloud platform: office apps & files (apps, documents, spreadsheets, presentations), and graphic design apps & files (e.g. Adobe Creative Suite). Note that we already have photo storage in SmugMug and on website and video storage in Vimeo and YouTube.

  10. 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.
