  1. Develop functionality for Activity Programs and Outings/Combos SD154/GH1639

    This is functionality would be much like what we have for courses and would be for activity programs like Explorers and Venturing Crew, activity outings like Yosemite Climbing and "combo" activities like Hike & Stewardship and Cathedral Rock & Mount Daniel. We need to be able to group a few activities (and maybe a couple lodge stays) under one "umbrella" Outing and use a "manage registration" style feature to register for them and the Outing as a whole like we do for courses.

  2. Make Activity Template's Activity Type a Multiselect GH2752

    Right now we have a number of leadership clinics which we are having a hard time reporting on since they are categorized by activity type when really we want them tagged as both the activity like Sea Kayaking AND outdoor leadership

  3. Stop showing activities that occur TODAY in the "My Activities History" section

    Right now, any event I am leading today shows up as the first thing in the "My Activities History" section on my profile. However, this is (and always has been) very annoying, because I have to scroll down to find it. Due to recent (and welcome) website optimizations, the history section loads more slowly, so I have to wait for it to load before I can open the activity I'm leading that day in order to print the roster.

    The activity I'm leading that day is the activity I'm going to need to access the quickest in order to print…

  5. Email Reminder for Activities, Courses and Events About to Open for Registration SD509

    As a site user, allow me to choose to get an email the day before an activity, course or event opens so that I get a reminder to register for an activity or course for which I plan to register.

    It would be ideal to add a checkbox along with "Send me an email reminder the day before this opens for registration." to the registration portlet where the the opening date is displayed. We're currently thinking a new role on the roster may be the best way to accomplish this.

  6. Include all fields in the CSV download after an activity closes GH2929

    As an admin or a leader, I would like to see all fields in the CSV download so that I can better manage courses and activities. Also reorder the fields so that like information is grouped.

  7. Need additional and/or functionality for badges for Youth Activities

    For a lot of our youth programs you always need to have a QYL badge and either a course badge or a QYL badge and a collection of skill badges. Right now the website isn't set up to make sure the QYL is connected to the course badge "OR" functionality and the skill badge "AND" functionality.

  8. Make it so you can't close a trip without trip results GH2508

    Right now if you are in the team roster you can't close the trip without giving a status like Sucessful/Cancelled etc. however you can do it via the yellow admin bar. We don't want trips closed without knowing how they went so it'd be great to get an error notification when you try and do this that says "Trip result must be entered on the roster before activity can be closed."
