  1. Event wait list feature

    Incorporate a way for volunteers to sign up to a wait list if a particular shift or event is full. This would help reduce the effect of late cancellations. Currently achieving this by adding an additional shift labelled 'WAIT LIST' but a set feature could be useful.

  3. Disable volunteer hours after a certain date

    Can there be an option for disabling volunteers to log hours after a certain date. Example: Disable logging hours for dates 7 days prior to current date.

  4. email notification to volunteers once their hours were approved

    Hi,
    Currently when approving hours, we can only Approve hours or "Decline & Send".
    It would be great to be able to notify volunteers via email when their hours were approved - for example by adding "Approve & Send" button.

    Thank you!

  5. Create event over multiple days

    Some of our activities require volunteers from Friday evening to Sunday evening - it would be good to see the volunteer activity show as three days vs one in the calendar.

  6. Ability to produce a report of total hours by category per volunteer

    Need to be able to produce a report with Volunteer name, email and total hours per category that does not show each detailed entry.

    Where teachers can post things they need help with but there's not a set and final date of event.

  8. Customizable event registration

    I would like to be able to customize event registration. I would like to be able to add fields such as t-shirt size, location preference for volunteering, number of people attending (if a group), etc.

    This advanced registration option would allow you to gather information about your volunteer that is specific to your organization!

  10. See all of the organizer contact info

    I would like to be able to see the organizer phone number. It is not required. So I do not see the info when I get ready to approve a volunteer. I have to ask them for the phone number so that I can verify the info.

  11. Uncheck items

    I would like to be able to uncheck items when grouping by volunteers. The reports automatically check items that I don’t want.

  12. optimize speed

    Every time I am on this site it is painfully slow.
    Slow to load, slow to approve, slow to confirm.

  13. It would be nice to create volunteer shifts for programs, similar to the event sign-up feature

    It would be nice to have a separate feature for volunteers to be able to sign-up for general volunteer shifts for certain programs, not just events. It would basically have the same concept and process as the events sign-up feature. Field approvers would be able to create volunteer shifts and export the schedule and those who have signed up.

  14. Ability to edit/delete/change the categories under Event Sign-Ups

    When creating new Event Sign-up opportunities, I've created a few categories already, but need a way to edit or delete these. Even just have an "edit" button for these would be helpful.

  16. Assigning managed users (volunteers without emails) to events

    Allow admins have the power to assign managed users (volunteers without emails) to events. Making it easier for Admins and Volunteers (with emails) to see if volunteers are needed for events.

  17. Archive active volunteers' past hours

    Please make it possible to archive a volunteer or selected volunteers' hours up to a selected date, so they can be accessed if needed, but don't keep showing up on their log. This allows us to track hours by term or period (since the term/period isn't the same for every volunteer), and to indicate which hours have already been "counted" vs. those that are still in process. Resetting the start date in settings doesn't work for this because it applies to all volunteers equally, and that isn't our situation. Thanks!

  18. API to access the data.

    This would be great for organizations that have specific reporting requirements for their county or state. It would allow users to access the data via a third party website.

  19. Promote Total Hours

    I would like to be able to post a widget on our website that simply shows the total number of volunteer hours over a specified amount of time, not in graph form.

  20. Total Hours (Current Year) Widget

    In addition to the current set of hours cumulation widgets, it would be great if there were one for "current year" totals.
