  1. 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.

  2. Deadlines for event sign ups

    So, the organizer can be able to close the event a day or two earlier to stop people from signing up for an event. (ie. deadline)

  3. Add ability to record RSVP as a NO

    We use Events to see who is coming to a meeting. We need to know who is definitely not coming as well as those who are coming. Not being able to record a NO for RSVP is confusing to many of our volunteers. A negative RSVP should be for the whole event and not individual shifts.

  5. 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.

  7. 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!

  8. Milestone Notification/Award Certificate

    Automatically generated and emailed to volunteer or manager for distribution (manager choice). Something to automatically let the students know when they've achieved milestone.

  9. Auto-email when a new volunteer is "approved" by an admin.

    Is there a way to send an auto-email/message when a volunteer is "approved" by our admin?

    Something like, "Thank you for applying with [organization name]. Welcome to our Team! You may now access our full volunteer portal system, and we look forward to seeing you at our next volunteer orientation...."

  10. Ability go to next event from event page

    From the event view page, have a button for next event or previous event. This would alleviate having to go back to the main calendar of events when you need to go through all events to see who or how many signed up for each event.

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Field supervisors view assigned volunteers

    It would be nice if Field supervisors could easily view and/or print the names and hour totals of their volunteers. At the moment, when they click the volunteer tab, they see everyone.

    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.

  16. "Pretty" volunteer-generated reports

    Would there be a way for volunteers to generate a “pretty” report of their hours with totals, graphs etc? We are a school, and our volunteers are students, so we’re thinking of something that would be added to the student’s portfolio for use in applying to colleges.

  17. Customized Event Registration and Reminder Emails

    Hi. It would be incredibly helpful to be able to create custom messages for registration and reminder emails. The feature already exists for cancellation instructions.

    If at all possible, I'd like the messages to carry over with duplicated events. It will save me so much time.

    Thank you.

  18. Notifications on reported hours after approval

    We’ve noticed that there is no way for an approver to know if an organizer reported an issue after the hours are already approved. Is there some way that approvers can be notified when an organizer reports an issue? It is clear before the approval because of the little red icon that shows, but after approval the only way is to go and find that volunteer log and see the issues reported on it. And an approver would never do that, because they are not notified of any reports.

  20. 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.
