    Instead of just filtering events have the option to only show available events as the default setting site wide.

  3. Exact Totals for Each Milestone Category

    In the Track It Forward app, participants should be able to see their totals in each milestone category. Currently, it just shows the total until milestone is achieved. It would be great to see the actual number of hours in each milestone category above the required hours for milestone.

  4. 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.

  5. A Event Calendar View That Shows RSVP'd Volunteers Names

    It's very important for me to be able to look at the calendar every day and see exactly who is up for events on a given day. Have to click through the event page and hit the plus sign by the RSVP in the bottom right hand corner is not efficient and it's good to be able to view all of that volunteer rsvp information at the same time.

  6. Track It Forward API

    While the reporting and export capabilities in TIF are fairly robust, it would be more convenient to exchange data with some web-based apps directly in real-time. APIs are more prevalent, and in a lot of cases, expected in web apps. Are there any plans for adding an API at some point in the future?

  7. Milestone Completion Report

    Looking for a report or export that shows when a volunteer completed the milestone and/or if they already received their reward.

    I need an easy way to quickly see which volunteers already received their reward vs. which volunteers recently completed their hours. Due to the high volume of volunteers, I need this data as an export.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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)

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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?

  19. 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.

  20. 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.…
