  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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,…

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  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.

  10. 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.

    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)

  14. Allow multiple milestone timeframes

    We have different kinds of Milestones and it would be great if we could track both simultaneously and not have to choose.

  15. Ability for volunteers to see history of past monthly milestones achieved

    My volunteers have a repeating monthly goal of 1 hour per month every month. Currently when they look in the mobile app, they can only see whether or not they achieved their milestone for the current month, but they cannot look in the past to see the months prior. I would like volunteers to have the ability to see past months and whether or not they achieved their monthly goal for each month they have so far been a volunteer.

  16. more than one criteria for a milestone

    Our students have to earn 150 hours AND submit and a link to their electronic portfolio to earn a milestone. It would be great if they could do both from this application.

  17. 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

  19. Allow volunteer to add custom event item

    We use the calendar to coordinate donations or food items. It would be helpful if volunteers could add their own item if they want to bring something that isn't listed.
