  1. Improve Program Center Reservation Process GH1167/1168/1169/1175/1176/1177

    Submitting a room reservation for the Seattle Program Center is incredibly time consuming and there is a lot of room for error. For example, the calendar does not show which room is reserved, so you have to click on each event so you can see if the room you want is available. If you're looking for a room in a future month (which is often the case), each time you go back to the calendar, it defaults to the current month, so you then have to scroll again to the date you're looking for and click on the next event…

    Completed  ·  Jeff Bowman responded

    Clicking on an item on a calendar opens a popup with info about the activity including a link to the full event details. This prevents you from losing your place in the calendar.

  2. Link event tickets to a salesforce revenue campaign as they are purchased GH3710

    The fundraising team would love it if there was a way to link event ticket purchases to a specific campaign as they came in so we can track revenue and ensure it is assigned to a specific fundraising effort and communicate with accounting if it needs to be assigned to a specific funding need. This would be similar to how we set up donation pages to assign to a specific campaign.

  4. 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.

  5. Clone Events SD585

    Add a feature to clone Events like we can do for Lodge Stays. This would be much lime a "recurring events" feature.

  6. Improve Event Edit Form GH2777/2805/2760

    (1) Re-order, update and add fields on the event edit form to make it easier for volunteers to complete.
    (2) Add validation that at least one "room" was selected for the Tacoma Program Center.
    (3) Set the Event Setup and Departure datetimes to default to the Start datetime - 30 min and End datetime + 30 min when adding an activity to the Seattle and Tacoma Program Center calendars. For editing an event, "remember" the time difference between Setup and Start datetime AND between End and Departure datetime and use those as defaults for editing the Start and/or End datetime.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Link Activities to Event/Room Reservation listings

    One of those items that I would be interested in seeing added to the
    capabilities of the new website system, is for when room reservations are
    made that an option exists to simultaneously tie that reservation into an
    actual activity. I know that not all room reservations are
    Mountaineers-related, but I suspect that those that are related would
    generally be associated with an activity (I know that all of mine are so
    far). This would possibly help alleviate date problems (I just noticed I
    was broadcasting a lecture date as being different from the room
    reservation - which was the…

  12. Add bulk update feature for Event "Attended?" checkbox GH3706

    Like we do for email, download, and print, add a Bulk Update Attended All|Selected button that checks or unchecks the Attended? box for all roster records or just the ones selected. When clicked, ask the user if they want to check or uncheck the Attended? box. This will make record-keeping easier for those who choose to use printed sign-in sheets.

    When you use the "Add volunteer hours" box at the bottom of an event roster, it adds hours to anyone with a volunteer role, not just the folks who were marked as attended. It would be great to get this…

  13. 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.

  14. Note major jewish, christian and muslim holidays on online calendar to promote inclusivity and avoid double booking

    It'd be great if the online reservation calendar noted major holidays like rosh hashanah, yom kippur, Eid Al-Fitr, easter etc so that volunteers are less likely to schedule activities on courses on those evenings. This would go a long way towards building an inclusive culture at The Mountaineers.

  15. Bring back the ability to post informal weekly activities.

    Bring back the ability to post informal weekly activities like the Volleyball, Greenlake Walk and Evening Outdoor In-line Skate acitvities we used to be able to post on the old web site.

  16. Change trigger for Notify Me list

    Modify the trigger for sending an email to the 'notify me' list for events from 1 ticket available to at least 2 (maybe up to 5). Currently when folks sign up to be notified of tickets, they often go to the event page to find no tickets are available anymore.

  17. Event Tickets Timing-Out in Cart

    The problem: Event rosters are not entirely accurate because if an individual adds a ticket to their cart and the cart times out, they are automatically moved to ‘canceled.’ Sometimes this is okay if the order of operations is such that the ticket times out and then after they register again. However, if it’s the other way around (purchase ticket, go to purchase another, times out) they show up as canceled where they should still stay registered. This seems to create duplicate entries on the event roster.

    Why it matters: This has implications for staff and volunteers managing events because…

  19. Month/Week/Day View Duplicated at Bottom of Calendar

    Can we duplicate the month/week/day strip from the top of the calendar down at the bottom of the calendar? It would be handy to have it at the bottom as well, especially with the forward/backwards arrows so we can switch months when we are looking at the bottom of the calendar. Either that or an infinite scroll to go from month to month. Or both!

  20. Portrait Photo Orientation

    This is for the tech forum and website.

    Whenever I want to upload one of the awesome pictures from one of my outings, I am limited only to landscape view. For some reason, the website automatically flips it to landscape if I upload a portrait view.
