Upgrade to Plone 5Our website is built on Plone 4.3 which runs on Python 2. Support for Python 2 ends in 2020. Plans to have Plone 5.2 on Python 3 are in the works. To be sure we are able to maintain support and install needed security patches, we should begin the process of upgrading to Plone 5 in late FY2019 and complete the transition in early FY2020. We will get many small side benefits from the upgrane to Plone 5 like being able to have links in help text and importing events.

- We'd use the same "line in the sand" (i.e. ~~~) to include only text/responses above the line for the program form(s) being printed.

Clone ActivitiesAs a member of the activity leaders group allow me to clone an activity so that I can more easily create the series of activities I need.

Fields that can be different in clones: Start date, End date, Leader, and Maybe prices.

Fields to calculate: Registration opening datetime = Start date + 1 day (24 hours) and Registration closing datetime = noon on the Thursday preceding the Start date.

Uses cases:
- Meany Lodge's "Day Use" activities
- Meany Lodge's "Snowshoe Trek + Lunch" activities
- Course lectures
- Course field trips

Notes: This is similar to what we do for lodge stays. It's probably best to add an "Allow activity cloning?" field to Route/Place so we can control what activities may be cloned (probably the Program Centers and Lodges, but it could be a few others)

Make Field Trip and Lecture Instructors Push to Course RostersRight now we have a lot of instructors who are just added or sign up to a single field trip roster. Unfortunately because they aren't added to the course roster they aren't available for recruiting via our mega course template roster for future field trips/lectures that particular year or in future years.

Also having the course show up in your My Courses & Programs is helpful for instructors who want a quick link to upcoming field trips for them to volunteer for. This is particularly important for the many day courses like basic, scrambling, sea kayaking etc.

Use "Age Group" Radio Buttons Instead of "Age" for Lodge ReservationsIs it better to use radio buttons for the age groups [i.e. one for Adults (age 14+) and another for Youth (age 13-)] when reserving a lodge stay than asking for actual age? What are the pros and cons?

Using radio buttons is better when one person is making a lodge reservation for another and does not know their age. I suspect with will happen a lot, especially for lodge admins who add hosts and other volunteers, as well as people who might bring a friend.

Self-reporting and Tracking Volunteer HoursAdding a feature to capture self-reported volunteer hours and display these and those captured by activities and events on a “My Volunteers Hours” page will allow volunteers to tell us about the hours they give that we can easily capture more automatically. Improve tracking of volunteer hours will give volunteers more pride in their engagement with us and allow us to more accurately report volunteer hours for our annual report, grant submissions, and donor cultivation.

Course Roster Export with Field Trip and "Experience" Trip ResultsHave a roster download that not only shows whether the participants are signed up for the required field trips but also be able to see all the activities they are registered for to ensure that snowshoe students are getting their snowshoes, climbers are getting on climbs and kayakers are getting registered for kayak trips.

This allows leaders to pre-emptively catch students who may be behind or not registered and send them an email ahead of time instead of struggling to get makes ups scheduled.

It would also be good to see everyone who got marked as Needs Improvement/Failed in one place so we can email them to schedule a make up.

This download would have the information that is in the "Review" link located next to each students name in current course rosters but show it for all students in one combined download.

Organizations, Online Invoicing & ContractsSet up organization in our website so that we can sync them to the existing organizations in SF. This will allow us to connect contacts, activities & courses (Mountain Workshops), events (Program Center Clients) and lodge stays (Outdoor Center Groups & Clients) to them for better tracking. We'll be able to add invoices that the organization contact can pay online, taking advantage of our existing online payment process and Salesforce reporting. We can also allow members and guests to show their other organization affiliations on their profile by letting them add them to list displayed on their My Profile page. Some of the benefits of managing client, group and partner contracts from online:
--The digital contracts will eliminate paper contracts that must be mailed back-and-forth or returned in person.
--The digital contracts will be easier to find and review in Salesforce than their paper counterparts.
--Allowing staff to more quickly, efficiently and accurately create contracts for our facility rental clients, lodge groups, and Mountain Workshops partners
--It will be easier, faster and more efficient for approvers to sign and return their contracts.

13 points$3,575$94,125Ranked2018-06Waitlists for lodge stays are complicated and challenging both because of the potential for one person to make a reservation for multiple people and the number of nights for which they may wish register.

It may be best to keep a waitlist separate from the roster for each lodge stay and email the entire list if any amount of availability opens. Then it's back to a first come, first served basis. This is a "notify me if space becomes available" rather than our traditional waitlist functionality.

--We'll probably choose Facebook, but how hard to make a portlet that is configurable for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram? It's 3 points per social media feed.

Separate Site Search Results for ImagesIn the site search, place all search results except images in one "tab" and images in another. We also have a lot of folders, especially ones titled, "Images" and "Resources," so we may want to have "tab" for folders too or rank them low in search results. This will help rank more important items higher in the search (e.g. a person's profile page above their profile image).Member ExperienceJeff Bowmanjeffb@mountaineers.orgTBDNon/an/a34023856SD644 (13)13 points$3,575$130,500Ranked2018-06GH2836 a ticket (a very small project) for the possibility of de-emphasizing content types like images and folders in search results.

Add Ability to Exclude Instructors from Getting Registration Conflict Check for a Course ActivityMake it so instructors can be excluded from conflict checking but not participants. For example for pool play sessions for sea kayaking course we need instructors for afternoon and morning sessions but students we only want to be able to sign up for one session.Volunteer ExperienceBecca Polglasebeccap@mountaineers.orgTBDNon/an/a17647597SD667 (3)3 points$825$131,325New2018-06105810108.8
Sell Tickets to Events on our WebsiteWe 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 integrated shopping cart and bet better able to serve and engage with our members and guests.Member Experience; Volunteer Experience; EventsGarrett Arnoldgarretta@mounaineers.orgLargeYesn/aOrganization, Online Invoicing and Contracts Supplemental Info17914096SD669(tbd)$131,325Ranked2017-03Low priority per Andriana's 2/23/17 email.

Monthly Payment SystemImplement a monthly payment system for courses and youth programs (with start and end payment dates specified). It is important so that can eliminate storage of people’s credit card on file at the Program Center, a financial/payment security issue.
