Creating Groups allows you to mass register a group of volunteers for a project and assign volunteers to a specific group. Volunteers can choose what groups they are a part of. Additionally, Administrators and Leadership Team access levels can add volunteers to groups. By creating groups and tracking what events they participate in, you can run reports based on the number of hours volunteered by a particular group. Additionally, the Primary and Alternate Group Leader can add volunteers to their group as well as register their group members for events.
Some organizations may create a group for each company, club, or non-profit that comes to volunteer with them. Other organizations may establish small groups or committees within their larger organization that volunteer together. There is no limit to the number of groups that you create, and you can always add more as you go.
Private Groups can also be established, but they can only be viewed by those who have Administrator or Leadership Team access. Volunteers cannot view or add private groups to their volunteer profile. Similar to the Private Interest Categories, Private Groups can be used for Key Volunteers or for your Board of Directors, or for any other groups you’d like. This allows you to send targeted E-mails to only your Key Volunteers, print mailing labels to invite them to a Volunteer Appreciation Lunch, track their specific hours, or remind your Board of Directors about an upcoming meeting without having to type in each person’s E-mail address.
