Summer 10

  • (Done) Task: put the online application back on [Teresa]
  • (Pending) Task: include a Paypal link [David]

Winter 09-10

  • (Done) Task: logo with tri-fold brochure attached, can you suggest improvements for both?
  • (Done - Followup Required: CHEF) Task: Add Gloria Kolleda to the "up to $499" donor list - done via database [Scott]
  • (Done - Followup Required: CHEF) Task: eliminate any duplicate entries on our donor page, we have many - These duplicates are in the database, not the html. [Scott]
  • (Pending: CHEF) Follow up: Can CHEF provide us with the updated donors list spreadsheet? I was provided with the master list in the past but the data is stale. I have two concerns:
1) The database stores the actual donation amount and places donors in brackets based off of the donation amount. I used $200 for “Kolleda, Gloria” since I did not know the actual donation amount.
2) When I updated the donor list last year I didn’t remember seeing any duplicate entries. Did some of the supports donate a second time? If so then we need to update their donation amount. I preserved records with the highest donation amount and deleted the others. I believe this will affect the brackets for a few donors.
  • (Done) Task: 2006, 2007 and 2008 grant recipients attached for standardization on site, 2009 winners will be announced in a couple weeks

  • (Pending: CHEF) Follow up: Do not have a description from CHEF
  • (Done) Task: Add 5 ways to help CHEF, as detailed in e-mail. - Added to home page.
  • (Followup Required: CHEF) Task: Add paypal donation link to the main page [Scott]
  • (Done) Follow up: We need an email address linked to CHEF's paypal account for a donation button. This would be the email address CHEF uses to login to paypal's web portal.
  • string.Format("{1}@{0}.net", "bellsouth", "gkallgren"); -- a little programming humor for bots
  • (Pending: CHEF) Follow up: I added the "Donate" button but the email address I was provided is not configured to receive funds. I believe they need to associate a bank account with their paypal account.
