  1. Episodic volunteer Category

    For one time or once per season volunteers for a specific event. Ability to create a simpler registration form and process to support collection of their pertinent data - for statistics and communications purposes.

    By having the separate category (where applicant, accepted etc are) they can be more easily kept out of the daily functional use of VI.

    Hello Supporters!

    We’ve updated the assigner dialogs to include a “sign up date” column that shows the date and time the volunteers signed up for the shift!

    While this doesn’t answer the direct request for a search based on date signed up for an activity, it hopefully can help some of you who have commented on needing to see that date/time when assigning the volunteers.

    -Patricia

  4. Expand search and email Role Filters to differentiate between Limited Access Administrator roles

    Now that we can create Limited Access Administrator roles at the Enterprise level, it would be great to use those different roles as search and email filters (eg. to send an email to all organization coordinators but not subadministrators like crew supervisors).

  7. Provide the ability to have items in a custom options list displayed in a specific order, rather than just alphabetical order

    Provide the ability to have the items in a custom options field list displayed in a specific order, rather than just alphabetical order. Currently, to force the order of options, you must place a number in front of the text, or something else to force it into the desired order.

  9. Volunteers to have monthly view of shifts per activity

    Allow volunteers to have a monthly view of shifts per activity real time as a report. Currently an admin sends out this view to ensure all shifts are covered, but it becomes out of date when people add and delete. If a volunteer could do it themself, it would be accurate and allow better dispersion of shifts.

  11. "Select All" Field on Sign Up Menu

    Add some kind of warning that the volunteer has selected the "Select All" item from the top of the Sign up menu. If a Volunteer accidentally selects that item in my system they can be assigned to many activities because all our volunteers make their own schedules..

  12. Make Volunteer Policies visible after registration is complete.

    Have a place for Volunteer policies to be visible to volunteers for review after the initial registration process. Also if updates to the policy are made, a way to share the updated version with all volunteers. Also a way to track who has 'checked' that they accept the policies.

  14. Further enhancements to volunteer quick search bar

    It would be interesting to see what else could fit into a typical user's 'template' within the quick lookup bar. Perhaps their preferred phone number and time? email address? status? What would be useful in this context and perhaps not even require a jump to their profile?

  15. Add alerts & basic schedule status info to main screen

    Would be nice to work scheduling-based info into the admin's main homepage in some way. Possibly...

    • Number of shifts in the next week at each for four possible shift statuses
    • Visual representation similar to the new visual schedule interface
    • Specific alert list of upcoming shifts without enough volunteers

  17. Activity Times to be Entered

    Good morning.
    I have a suggestion for your template coders:
    When adding a new activity, after entering the Beginning Time, have the Finishing Time automatically default to the same as the Beginning Time so the person entering the information doesn't have to scroll down as far and also prevents entry of a Finishing Time that is before the Beginning Time.
    Does that make sense?
    Cheers, Michael.

  18. Cancellation/no show report

    We need to track our cancellation/no show stats monthly and for now we are using a work around that works only because during COVID our volunteers are not signing up for or cancelling shifts on their own. It would be great to have said report. Perhaps when a volunteer cancels they can document the reason as well.

  19. Automatically removing volunteers from the schedule if they are switched from active to inactive

    This is a feature that Volgistics has, where as soon as a volunteer is marked inactive they are removed from any scheduled shifts. This is helpful when a volunteer wants to take an extended break or if they decide they don't want to volunteer at all but we aren't ready to archive their account.

  20. Add activity setting to require volunteers to be assigned before they can log hours

    We’d like the option to be able to require that a volunteer be assigned to an activity to be able to log hours to that activity. It would be great if this could be a setting for each individual activity so it could be applied as needed, and not as a setting for the whole account.

    It would be helpful, too to be able to move the hour logging settings (with/without approval) from the account level to the activity level, so the admins over each activity can assign the most appropriate setting for that activity.
