  1. Allowing separate approvers for subcategories under a single activity / milestone

    Allow different approvers to be set to approve hours in subcategories under a specific milestone. Example - milestone could be hours volunteering in a home improvement program. Have a person set to approve all volunteer plumbing hours, set a different person to approve any landscape hours, set a different person to approve any electrical hours etc. All hours regardless of the approver (Plumbing, landscape, electrical etc) count toward the main home improvement category.

  2. Bulk Duplicate w/volunteers signed up

    I would like to be able to sign up a volunteer for a shift, and then bulk duplicate that event so the volunteer is assigned to all future events as well. Say I have a recurring event each day of the week, and Larry is going to be on every Tuesday event. I'd like to make one event and then duplicate so I don't have to sign Larry up for every individual event.

  3. Digital sign in sheet setting for time

    Create a setting so I can choose if I want the digital sign in sheet to default to the start/end time from the calendar or default to the actual clock time when they sign in

  4. I would like volunteers to be able to sign a volunteer waiver when they sign up for an event. it could be a check box that says they have r

    It is hard to get people to sign the volunteer agreements that are required. If you could add the agreement and they click a box that they have read and understand the volunteer agreement. this could before an event sign up.

  5. Limit the field size, in other words, the number of characters in the Hour Log Notes field;

    Some volunteers write an entire novel in this space because there is no limit (I'm exaggerating, of course)

  7. Access Sent Emails

    Include the ability to access old emails that were previously sent so it is easier to copy/paste information that is the same each time.

  9. Differentiate hours within a milestone

    The minimum requirements for our group is 30 total hours... however, 5 of those have to be fundraising, 15, community service, and 10 school service. The kids are looking for a way to know when they meet each of those minimum requirement goals and our secretary and I are looking for a way to log that data more efficiently for club record keeping purposes.

  11. Expand Exporting to Calendar Integration Without Need for File Export/Import

    Today, the only way to keep our organization's website calendar (Google-based) synchronized with Track It Forward is to
    1. Export the events (1 month at a time)
    2. Save the file as an Excel file
    3. Delete all columns except Description, Date, Start Time, and End Time
    4. Delete Duplicate rows
    5. Rename columns to be compatible with fields required by Google Calendar
    6. Add End Date column
    7. Change Start and End Time values to have a space (e.g., 8:00pm --> 8:00 pm) and change format of column to Date type
    8. Save file
    9. Export into Google calendar

  12. Prevent Overlapping Events in the Calendar

    We have a problem where committee chairs are beginning to create overlapping events without first checking the calendar. Can a feature be added to prevent overlapping events?

  13. Admins can see individual dashboards

    It would be great if admins could see individual volunteer dashboards the way the volunteers sees their own dashboard. Currently, when a volunteer's name is selected, a list of all entered hours is displayed (in the order they were submitted). It would be nicer to see each category with the milestone graphic instead of text based list.

  14. Milestones and independent approvers for sub-activities

    Adding this feature would make Track it Forward almost perfect. Allow milestone tracking and separate hour approvals for sub categories under a main activity. To be clear, it would be good to have the option of a main activity milestone. Example Campus Service may have a 25 hour milestone. But within that Activity there could be sub-categories that students need to track for awards. Example - 10 hours of TA work, approved by individual teachers, or 10 hours of volunteering with Athletics, approved by a different teacher etc...But all counting towards the large bucket of 25 hours for campus service.…

  15. Bulk volunteer permission upgrade

    It would be a great time saver if we had the ability to upgrade more than one volunteer from one permission role to another so we would have to individually set their permission. This is especially helpful when giving a group of people an upgraded role (e.g., committee chairs).

  16. Ability for "outside" organizers to verify attendance/approve

    We serve lots of "outside" community organizations. Would there be a way to allow those event organizers to approve/verify hours on-site, without giving them access to all information and permissions? Currently, we have to wait on sign-in sheets or other "verification" methods from individual organizations before we can approve submissions. And sometimes those don't come without prodding.

  17. 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.

  19. Volunteer export based on different criteria

    It would be great if each volunteer could export their hours based on different criteria. We would love for volunteers to generate their own reports based on activity, so that they can get their total hours for each kind of activity that we have.

  20. Military time for log

    I would be really helpful if we could log hours in military time instead of am/pm.
