  1. 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.

  2. Please post confirmed Seasonal sign-ups on the MyImpact home page

    Hi! For our programs, we have two different schedules- seasonal (weekends or longer) and shifts (a few hours). When one signs up for shifts, they are posted on a volunteer's MyImpact home page but seasonal events are not. Is there some way that seasonal events can be made visable on a volunteer's MyImpact home page? It would offer a more consistant confirmation.

  3. Volunteers able to see all activities, across organisations, in calendar view

    We would like our volunteers to easily find activities across our various organisations.
    In the MyImpact interface, I would love volunteers to be able to see all shifts, across all organisations, by being able to set the "Organisation" drop down to "Show All".
    This is currently available in the list view but not in the calendar view.

  4. Allow volunteers to be able to download their hours as an Excel file in addition to a pdf

    Volunteers can only download a pdf of their hours generated in a report. It is helpful for many to be able to save this information as an Excel file.

  5. google calendar integration

    When volunteers click "Add to Google Calendar” next to their shift, the google calendar does not add the description / details (pre or post assigned description) of their shift. The “Add to calendar” link on the other hand, does add the shift description / details.

    That is, whereas details/description does move across when users click “Add the calendar” the same details do not move across when users click “add to google calendar”. It seems to me inconsistent for the same function to produce two different results for users and also i believe users would have the expectation that information regarding…

  6. Add a registering form/button to the log in page

    When you're on the main page of an account, you can click on "log in"/"entrer dans mon compte" and it leads you to a log in form. There should be a "create a new account" form on that page too, to simplify new registering. Or, at least, a button leading to the form.
    Thank you

  7. Move the "register" button up on the account page

    To create a new volunteer profile, people must click on a role or go to the very bottom of the account page.
    This button should be at the top of the page, right next to "Log in".
    Right now, people are contacting us to ask where to register.

  8. Easier to read Volunteer Impact System Notifications

    When a volunteer changes a shift, the admin receives a Better Impact notification email. Unfortunately, it is challenging to quickly scan. I would suggest a different font and a colour scheme (green text to note adding of shift or red text to note deleting a shift). An interesting graphic would be an option too.

  10. admin link

    I have just added limited admin roles and several volunteers are assigned to them. However, there is not an easy way for volunteers to click from within their myimpactpage to access their admin roles. I am told they have to log in to the admin side of the site. If their admin privileges cannot be integrated into myimpactpage, please make it easier for them to have a single-click access to the admin page.

  11. An overview schedule for volunteers so they can see who else is on with them that day i.e a calendar view

    Make it clearer for volunteers to see wo else is scheduled over the whole day as opposed to just on specific activities. At the moment, our vols are struggling to use the "who" section as it requires them to click on each activity to se who is scheduled. Would like to see an overview calendar which shows who is already scheduled that day. It's not quite clear enough at the moment.

  12. order of general interests and categories

    Would like the ability to customize the front end view of roles, categories and General Interests. Currently, you can't customize the order that categories appear in - it's just alphabetical. You also can't 'pin' a featured role to the top. And if you have General Interest, it trumps the categories and is at the top always. I'd like to be able to reorder things, or highlight roles, or pin categories (or roles) to the top.

  13. Select a group of organizations for calendar filter

    I would like to be able to select a group of organizations when filtering the opportunity calendar. Saving this as my default would then give me a calendar view of all the organizations that I'm involved with and remove the others.

  15. Include transcripts (& closed captions, if possible) for e-learning / training modules.

    Include transcripts (& closed captions, if possible) for e-learning / training modules. This would help persons with hearing impairments, and transcript could be sent to persons without computer access. Access to a .pdf version of key learning & content would also be helpful.

  16. Don't allow a space in username

    We had a user update their userid with a space included. It was then very difficult to sign on using a mobile device.

  17. Volunteers search opportunities by postcode

    Our biggest problem is the external Better Impact site. Is there a way to improve the search functionality on the external volunteer page so that new volunteers can search for opportunities by postcode to find the opportunities closest to them?

  18. "I agree with the organisation's policies" - change to policies below or similar

    On the My VolunteerPage sign up page, we ask prospective volunteers to view and agree with the organisation privacy policy only. They click on "view policy", which is fine, but are then asked to tick the box saying " I agree with the organisation's policies" - we have not asked them to view ALL policies. Could "I agree with the organisation's policies" be changed to "I agree with the organisation's policy/ies viewed below" or similar? Thank you,Lynda

  19. More User - Friendly My Volunteer Page

    Many of my volunteers have noted that their volunteer page is clunky and not very user friendly. There are too many buttons and loopholes for them to go through to register for an activity. They would like things to be easier for them to see what is currently open and to sign up instead of searching. A system page that is simple, clean, and refreshed would help us out greatly.

  20. when logging hours see active instead of recent as a default

    When volunteers are logging their hours, it would be helpful to see "Active" activities instead of "Recent" activites as a default. Volunteers are confused when they don't see an activity in the drop-down menu and it is an added step to have to click on "Active" and then try again. If each organization could change their default, this would be helpful.
