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.

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 set time frame the admin receives the alert and initiates an escalation process to follow up on the welfare of the volunteer
