  1. Adding pronouns field into Contact Details

    Adding pronouns option into contact details field when volunteers sign up to Volunteer Impact.

    This allows us to identify the pronouns a volunteer would like to use before we contact them or interview them.

    In 2020 we should be normalising conversations about gender, and show trans and non-binary equality. This avoids anyone making assumptions or mistakes with pronouns ahead of talking to the volunteer.

  2. Being able to add more stages to 'Applicant Journey'

    At present, on the dashboard I can sort applicants into 'applicant'. 'in process' and 'accepted'. It would be great to have a customisable option so that I could add in 'interviewed', 'references received' etc, and see this at a quick glance without running reports each time.

    This would be really useful when mass recruiting volunteers to roles, and in the case of admins responsible for different parts of the volunteer journey, it would really speed things up, knowing which applicants were at which stage.

  3. Making Limited Admin Roles more customizable

    As we move to giving department leads limited access to the system (to pull reports/schedules/emergency contact), one issue we are running into is being able to limit the amount of information they can have access to in custom fields.

    For example, a department lead/supervisor needs to be able to see emergency contact information, but does not need access to their T-Shirt size (for uniforms) or knowing how they heard about the volunteer opportunity.

    It would be helpful to be able to narrow it down further, rather than blanket access.

  4. E-learning hours automatically credited to volunteer

    Create a way that e-learning time spent by volunteer is automatically added to their hours given. Or set up way admin can create an average time spent on training and as each module is completed that average time is credited to the volunteer automatically. I find volunteers are not always adding training time as it's not scheduled time. I have the activity as a training/education activity available to them, but they don't always add the time.

  5. Adding Feedback Fields to Volunteer's Opportunities Tab

    Add a feedback field during sign-up so volunteers can add some details about their shift prior to working. For example, in a trail roving program, a short feedback field could allow them to enter a trail name when signing up for a shift (so we know exactly where they plan to be).

  6. Client Encounter Reports - Notify, Approve, and Mark

    Bring the client encounter report more in line with the feedback report. It would be great if encounter reports required approval and showed up on the dashboard. Bonus if we can assign which admin gets notified when a client report comes in. For hospices, it is important to know when one came in, to be able to approve the encounter report, or easily email the volunteer who submitted it, and later mark it in some way when it has been added to the Medical Record system.

  7. Timeclock Alerts

    As we do not always have access to our PCs it would be good to receive text alerts for when a volunteer starts and finishes their shift. Is this something that could be considered? I understand the you can log into the website from smart devices but alerts would be much simpler for coordinators.

  8. Add text box answers to elearning modules - reflective learning in a COVID world!

    With COVID forcing a lot more of our vol training online, we need to use the elearning modules more but can't because there is no option for text answers. Most of our training is reflective (what would you do in this scenario/how do you feel), and we need a range of answer options to properly adhere to adult learning principles. We would love to see an option of free text answers on Better Impact, instead of having to use Moodle or links to SurveyMonkey to collect the answers we need. Thanks!

  9. Allow Administrators to create headings and/or folders within the Document Library

    Why? A long list of documents is not user-friendly because it hinders the “findability” of documents.

    Example: Jeannine logs into her Admin account on Better Impact and navigates to the Document Library. She is searching for a document that has to do with Volunteer Training. There are so many documents that she feels overwhelmed. It’s frustrating that she can’t locate the file more quickly. She is frustrated and wishes she could look under a heading or in a folder labeled “Volunteer Training” to help her locate the desired file.

  10. Friendly Reminder to Help Administrators

    It would be so much easier and faster for administrators to be able to have a friendly reminder sent automatically with the weekly reminder for the volunteer shifts; instead of generating through communications.

  11. Allow file(s) to be added when giving feedback

    It would be great if volunteers could upload meeting minutes or any other relevant document when they leave their feedback (maybe they could be stored into a directory in the Document Library?).

  12. Timeclock Alerts to monitor offsite volunteering from a safety perspective

    Timeclock alerts in the form of a text message would be extremely beneficial for our organisation. A text alert to an administrator where a volunteer has not logged off the clock within a predetermined timeframe would help the admin monitor offsite volunteering particular on weekends and after hours. Upgrading the timeclock feature in this way would enhance its use considerably by enabling it to double as both a tool to quantify volunteer activity/hours but also as a tool which supports admins to monitor offsite volunteering from a safety perspective. i.e. where a volunteer has not clocked off within the predetermined…

  13. Acknowledgement of feedback

    It would be great to acknowledge when a volunteer has submitted feedback when logging their hours. It's important for a volunteer to know that I have read their feedback, and by having a 'thumbs up' or automatic notification that I've read it (not email or text which is too time-consuming) would be great. If anything needs to be followed up due to the feedback, then an email or text would suffice.

  14. Default parameters for activities

    It would be really great if admins could set up default parameters for activities. An example would be that if a certain qualification was required for all volunteers, that could be set up as a default option for all newly generated activities. This would be a time saver for admins. The need to click a certain parameter each time a new activity is created would be great!

  15. Allow Feedback Opportunity for volunteers that have their hours autologged

    Since most of our volunteers show up, we have chosen to make it easier on them and auto-log their hours based on the schedule. Many volunteers don't care about their hours, but from a reporting standpoint, the organization does. But we miss the opportunity to get feedback from the volunteers after their shift.

  16. Volunteer ID Badges/secure QR code on Mobile App

    Volunteer Badge/secure QR code on Mobile App

    I would like to suggest a volunteer badge created by administrator that a volunteer can access on mobile app to show their volunteer status.

    This would be used by on and off site volunteers whenever required to access a public building and/or dept and/or home of a client.

    The volunteer would open their app and can show whomever is requesting it their photo id with a status of active and approval by administrator.
    When volunteer would be terminated, the adminstrator would have sole access to disactivate the volunteer id badge.

    -will eliminate need…

  17. Ability to Run Activity Raw Data Reports

    I would like the ability to run a raw data report for activities with fields for the activity category, name, account name, activity report group, visibility settings, and qualifications. I need to be able to easily identify which activities have not been set up correctly. If an enterprise-level report is not possible, individual account reports would still be very helpful. With 80+ accounts in my organization, and thousands of activities, it is not feasible for me to be able to conduct the drills I need to do to identify those activities that have not been set up correctly. Many of…

  18. Make all the contact detail section of the application form editable

    There are too many options on the application form settings and those that are there we would like to be editable. We want a less is more form without options that are of no use to us. Please make these optional to reduce right down to name, address, cell phone, email, date of birth. We really don't want all the rest. And, we'd like to be able to put a message in there so we can tell volunteers exactly what we require - e.g. your name should be the same as on your passport. Please, please, please can it be…

  19. Badge Report

    I would like to run a report to see who has what badge. The badges are attached to the quantity of hours a volunteer has. They determine a volunteers benefit level.
