  1. Flags

    An additional Flag of "No Response" would be useful for volunteers scanning thru to follow up

  2. Improve accuracy of automatically suggested related articles

    The search criteria for choosing related ideas is too broad. Most suggestions are off target. I suggest using a learning AI to improve the selection trained with user feedback indicators of perceived relevance.

  3. Make banner reporting that you have successfully logged in smaller

    In several places green banners pop up confirming a users actions. This information is useful but the layout needs improvement. Currently they cover up important on-screen information. I suggest making them smaller and have them fade away automatically after 1 minute.

  4. Cross-communication among organizers from different organizations

    Make it possible for organizers to contact each other by phone or email regardless of what organization each is registered in.

  5. Tutorial - Infographic

    I think it would be very beneficial to have an infographic or 2-minute overview video that explains how to use this website/platform.

    It should cover:

    1. The Set-up of a New Community (this is helpful when a dormant/test community has been set-up [ex.Toronto] but new users have no understanding of the setup process or administration)

    2. Clarify of User Roles & Responsibilities (if applicable).

    3. Examples of How it is actually used in an emergency.

    With this, it would be easier to communicate the purpose and effectiveness of this platform. Which means it would be easier to share via social media and implement…

  6. More Tags or Custom Tags

    The current tags are good, but not sufficient. I need tags like "school" and "pets" so people are able to focus in on updates relating specifically to those topics. Perhaps allowing us to create custom tags would solve this problem.

  7. Please fix my login right away

    I'm working in both Sonoma County, CA and Shasta County, CA. I used a new email address when I registered for Shasta so I could move easily between the two communities. Now my Sonoma County login in doesn't work. This is TOTALLY unacceptable. Sorry to freak out but I'm responsible for the Sonoma County site and this morning I can't even get to the back end. Help, help

  8. Call For Code - Innovation And Technology For Good

    Dear Morgan and Caitria, I've seen your TED Talk video a while ago and was absolutely amazed by your wonderful initiative. Well done! I'm using this method to try and reach you, as I am not sure how else to do so.

    I work for IBM in the UK. I wanted to to make you aware of a programme, Call for Code. I think what you are doing fits so well with what the Call is all about. I'm not sure if you have seen it. Apologies if you have. I'm hoping it will be of interest, but please have…

  9. Gratitude and Improvement suggestions

    Heya,

    I have been working with your system about a year ago, through our Helping Hands work in recovery from the flood hitting Lismore, NSW, Australia.
    First of all - I want to say thank you. From the bottom of my heart. Your website has been such a helpful tool, and it was so useful in those first weeks. Thank you thank you.

    I found a note that I wrote with some suggestions for improvement (yes, it's been a hectic year, who had time to do anything other than work?). I thought it might be a useful feedback, even after…

  10. Re: quick question about my last email

    Hi,

    Just thought of checking if you received my earlier emails. We created a comprehensive guide about disaster preparation, and we’d love to see it included in your list of online resources. Can I send you the link to it?

    Sorry if you’re not the right person to contact about this, but could you please direct me to someone responsible for website updates regarding resources on disaster preparation?

    Thank you very much, and have a nice day!

    Sharon

  11. outdated

    First time user. Concept is great. Lot's of functionality, but very little current or credible data. It appears that most of the site has been abandoned. I question how many people will actually use it. All communities should show date of last post on the community search page so that users can see what's current. Love the idea.

  13. Instant Data Centers

    Hello I love what you are doing. I came across you from a TED talk and was interested right away based on what we do. We build micro modular data centers that are deployed all over the world. These data centers are weather proof and able to be put almost anywhere. We have even built them with cellular LTE antennas mounted to them to extend the range of cell single brought into the IT gear inside so it better broadcast wifi out. I see it as a bit of an evolutionary step for you if you could partner or offer…

  14. List of badly needed features

    • The ability to tag volunteers in comments so there is better flow of information
    • Some sort of a central repository of donations by type so it's easier to match requestors to donors of specific donations
    • Sorting/filtering by date, unmet vs met, available vs unavailable, locked etc.
    • A way to represent potential match of requestor and donor, so further follow up can commence

  15. Offline Mode, printable needs/case mgt

    If there was an offline mode available (I'm thinking like an app/program) it would be very useful for initial disasters where there are generators but no phone/cell/internet yet. We were in this situation for a day, and if it had been longer it would have been tremendously limiting for using this site. Once internet is restored, the local info could be uploaded to the website. This has its own challenges of db mgt, but it would be useful if addressed.
    Also, as we interface with a relief organization who uses paper to track cases, the ability to print the needs…

  18. Collaboration

    Hi! I'm not sure if you guys remember but over a year ago, Chris commented on my page in Making All Voices Count's Global Innovation Competition 2015. We ended up getting gold, and after almost a year, we were able to (soft) launch Balangay in the most disaster prone area in the Philippines- Albay. Similarly, my company won a bid to start a "Smart City Transformation Project" in Legazpi City Albay. One of the core components of the project is Disaster Preparedness, Response and Recovery.

    By any chance, are you still interested to collaborate, or maybe do a partnership?
    We…

  19. I chose "choose" to send attached file for my note; no success.

    Your site copied out the names (but grayed out) of the 3-page and then of the 1-page attachments, I tried to send, and then it told me I hadn't chosen the file(s) yet. Repeated my usual process several times. How can I send you the 1- or 3-page attachment that goes with the Rio Olympic sewer water for swimmers plea?
