Walks Manager

  • NSD-363:  Unable to see month view in the calendar view on mobile or switch between days
  • NSD-347: Error messaging for CSV import headings does not match CSV file column headings exactly e.g., start date vs. Date

  • NSD-370: Printing a route generates excessive number of pages to print

NSD-399: Duplicate button "Greyed Out"

A small number of users have experienced issues where the "Duplicate" button is greyed out as if it cannot be used, even in situations where it should be usable. This is a priority and is due to have a fix deployed in February 2024.


Future improvements

We will continue to address any bugs & issues within the system to ensure existing functionality is working as intended. Alongside those fixes, we will list all agreed future developments below.

  • Ability to view the contact preference settings for each Walk Leader within a group. Development for this will be underway in Q4 2023 with a targeted release of February 2024.

Our digital team will continue to consider future developments, taking into account feedback from members and volunteers. Should you have any questions or suggestions for new features, please contact supporter care team or submit a response here:
