  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  4. 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.

  7. Dashboard for upates

    Some type of dashboard that pops up when a volunteer logs in that shows any news or updates before they proceed with checking in. With many on-going policy changes due to COVID-19, it would be nice to have a dashboard or updates/articles that can be posted. A "home" page.

  8. Allow approvals from volunteer page

    I think it would be AMAZING if approvers could bulk approve hours from the individual volunteers' page. As club advisor, I often look to see what individual students are doing, check their history, look at progress, etc. I know I can review and approve single entries, but how great to be able to look at allll of one student's entries, click the checkboxes or select all, and approve all at one time.

  11. Preserve filter selections on calendar

    Every time volunteers visit the event calendar, they need to select what categories they want to filter by. It would be convenient if category selection could be preserved for each user based on their most recent selection. For example, if I filter for Location A events, the next time I check the calendar Location A is already preselected.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Include Event Details in the Reports

    Right now, Report data is limited to just the event name. It would be useful if we could select additional event data, such as Shift Name to see exactly what the volunteer did.

  15. 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.

  16. 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. 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.

  19. 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

  20. Customization of charts and graphs

    I'd like the option to customize the charts on my site to show monthly hours by activity. It would also be nice to customize for a specific profile field, such as grade level
