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

  4. 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.

  5. use pin codes for the kiosk

    you just put in your pin number and it records you and the time you signed it and out. That would eliminate the need to search for your name or type it in.

  6. Enable the option to set configurations for time served in a meeting under the Hour Log

    Currently the option allows you to select only one time or duration option from a drop down menu at the top of the form, but that doesn't always work if a volunteer is entering multiple entries. For example, it would be great to be able to submit a list of donated items without needing a time entry, then submit the hours for a planning meeting, & also submit volunteer hours for a field trip. The second additional questions would be configured to appear after one of the ways to volunteer was selected (marked as a YES). It would look something…

  9. Running List of Cancellations

    I would like a running list of cancellations available just like the "rejections" tab.

    I would to see if volunteers cancel often or if there is a particular event volunteers cancel for the most, etc.

  10. 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)

  11. 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?

  15. Include time in time out field for import

    When we import hours, we cannot use the time in and out field. This causes discrepancies with our reports since it doesn't match entries logged by the volunteer

  16. Export pending hours from approval queue

    I'd like the ability to export hours that are currently pending approval so I can review them in a spreadsheet and then do a bulk approval. Sorting them in a spreadsheet would make it easier to compare entries made by the same person and/or entries made for the same events to ensure consistency. The existing filters help some, but it would save time if I could just sort it by my own criteria.

  17. Enhanced Search Capabilities for Rejected Hours

    I would like to use the Rejected Hours list to send out a reminder email to volunteers who haven't fixed their entry. It would be ideal if I could search by date, active status, etc. to limit my email to relevant volunteers.

  19. Double verification for organizer emails

    I appreciate that the info now is emailed to the supervisor for approval and it's my understanding that if they agree with the information they have received they can just do nothing and it's considered approved. I just wish there were some way to know for sure that they had received the email and indeed have approved it. Like if they could do something simple like click a link in the email and it would register as approved. I'm pretty sure that they can leave a little comment if desired, too, right?
