  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. "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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Auto-email when a new volunteer is denied/archived

    Should a volunteer be "denied" (due to a failed background check, or bad interview/reference check), can we have options other than "archive"?

    We need to be able to contact them to let them know they have been denied, and email would seem to be the most ideal way to do that. An auto-email/message if there were a "denied" button, rather than just "approve" or "archive", would be great here.

    At the least, if there were a "denied" button that sent the admin to the email screen to send the denial email AND THEN gave the admin the option to archive,…

  7. Report by Event name

    I'd like to run a report by the event name. We have recurring events and I'd like to send an email out to all volunteers who have volunteered for that event regardless of the date. This would allow me to promote the series of the event to those who already have experience. Currently I have to open each event throughout the year and down load the volunteers then filter out duplicates, blah blah blah.

  8. Volunteer Hour Trends Over Time

    I would like to be able to see total volunteer hour trends monthly over time (ie. year-to-year), both at the individual staff member level and as an aggregate - similar to the "Volunteer Hours" chart on the Organizer Dashboard, but with a customizable (and extendable) time period. Our organization compares (recruitment) hours to (child) enrollment monthly, and we really need a better and easier way to see correlations between the two, if any.

    Improved reporting capability - perhaps with graphs - would really be helpful.

  10. Add event name column on verification dashboard

    Have events name show up as another column, because right now when you verify hours there is no activity associated to an event. Therefore we have to write the event name on the note in order to be able to tell what the hours belong to.
    It will be great if there was an activity column and an event column, so Events can have their names posted.

  11. 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.

  12. Reason for cancellation text box

    When a volunteer cancels, provide a text box for a reason for cancellation. Box can be optional.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  19. Pre-fill hours from an associated event on the app

    The website and mobile app do not align with hour submissions. When associating an event on the app, it does not prefill the hours from the event sign-up. We would benefit from that being a default setting where the event must be selected first to submit hours. We are having trouble with multiple members submitting random hours and random events.
