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 COVID-19 badge to activity and lodge stay rosters

    To make vaccine verification easier, a number of volunteers have asked about adding a COVID-19 Vaccine badge column directly to activity rosters, viewable from the main roster page. This way leaders don't have to download rosters or click into individual member profiles.

    Additionally, lodge stay rosters do not have the same badge field that activity rosters have. A number of lodge hosts have expressed the need to be able to view badges from the roster page, in any format (but preferably through a direct COVID-19 Vaccine badge column).

  2. Allow primary leaders to uncheck their "show as contact" for an activity

    Course and course lecture/field trip leaders are increasingly utilizing generic Committee profiles or Basic Course profiles as the Primary Leader for course related activities to make sharing the workload of answering participant questions and managing the rosters easier. Burnout is a common consideration I hear from leaders choosing to do this.

    However we need real people to lead activities for many reasons, chief among them are:
    • Someone from The Mountaineers (or approved by us) needs to be on site and manage the participants.
    • Our emergency and leadership teams needs to know who is in charges in case an…

  3. Badge Rosters Access

    To implement the new climbing leader progression (as well as the recently updated snowshoe leader progression), please give committee admins access to edit leader badge rosters. While there's a very small risk that someone could accidentally remove a person from a different branch from a badge roster, that's simple to fix. (note: if it can be possible to manager leader badges via the committee roster, that would also be a workable solution).
    Thanks!

  4. Comma delimited roster email address copy GH2884

    Under "copy email addresses" in the roster, could we also have two separate ones, comma delimited and semi-colon delimited?

  5. Committee roster updates based on activity level

    One of the things were trying to do right now is clean up the roster, lots of old info there. Any chance those can be self updating fields? For example the scramble standard says leaders have to do at least one trip every 2 years. Something similar could work for instructors too.

    We added the ability to download badges for all on a committee roster, so there is enough data for a “real human” to review and make decisions about a leader’s status. This is better than a costly automated system that could accidentally remove a person from a roster.

  6. Improve search functionality in the Add Person to Roster field

    Improve the search capabilities of the lookup field when you are using the "Add Person to Roster" field. Let’s say I’m looking at an activity and I want to add a person to the roster. I click the Roster option near the top of the window then click the button to add a person. A data entry form then appears. When I click in the name window the options for what I can type are extremely limited. If I type the name of a person the way they themselves have told me it is spelled, very often there is no…

  7. Access to Badge Rosters

    Provide access to badge rosters with means for admins to maintain them and correct inaccuracies. I know of no defensible reason to hide this information, especially from committees that need it to do their jobs.

  8. Add status column to course roster

    The course roster can be improved with a new column to show status of the students and instructosr. Students start out as registered then progress to graduated, cancelled, failed, extended, etc. Instructors may also cancel, no show. Using the role column to carry that fact is not the best because then when the status changes we lose track of the actual role. For example, if the status changes to cancelled, we no longer know if the registration was for a student or an instructor.

    By extension, this idea means that "graduated" is a status of the student role, not a…
