  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.

  4. 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.

  6. SMS text notifications

    Some volunteers prefer text communication rather than email. The ability to choose which communication option the volunteer would prefer would be great.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  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. 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!

  13. 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

  14. Access Sent Emails and Recipients

    Include the ability to access old emails that were previously sent and which recipients were included. This would make it easier to track communication with volunteers and copy/paste information that is the same each time.

  15. Submitting hours for a volunteer

    Currently, submitting hours for a volunteer must be done under the 'Overview' tab by selecting a volunteer from a drop down list.

    It would be nice to be able to submit hours for a specific volunteer under their 'Timesheet' tab.

  16. Showing messages on events as comments for everyone to see, like on signup genius

    On signup genius, when a person signs up, they can make a comment that shows to everyone who has the link to the signup. It is nice for instances where they need to let everyone know the specifics of what they're bringing. It would be a great feature to have on track it forward. When people send messages, it goes just to the organizer, and sometimes it would be very helpful if everyone on the signup could see.

  18. Events - Add Location and Contact Person Fields OR Add Ability to Customize Form

    Due to the way we utilize the events calendar, it would be very helpful if there were fields for Location and Contact Person; or the ability to customize the event form as needed. That way, we could easily use these columns to sort when exported. There is limited functionality with everything currently being lumped into the Event Description.

  20. I would like you to change the event organizer options to allow 2 or more event organizer for one event.

    There have been many times where I create a signup for our class at school (I'm the parent coordinator for the class), and I would like to have the teacher and I both be event organizers so we can both edit and see who has signed up and keep track of messages and such. It would be nice to have that feature.
