How do I manage volunteers on my project?

Volunteers can be managed by accessing a Project's Dashboard (Past, present, and future dates).

Whether you need to manage (remove/edit) the volunteers who are signed up for a project, or you need to assign people from your People page to specific projects, VOMO has you covered!

To start working with either of these features, simply visit a Project Dashboard.

  1. Log in to your Administrative Dashboard.
  2. Select Projects and then Active from the blue menu on the right side of the page.
  3. Find the project that you want to work with and click on the title.
  4. On the second row of information, you will see the words Manage and Assign.

Managing Volunteers and Items on your Project:

  1. Choose the dates you want to see. The default view shows the past 30 days and the next 30 days from today's date. You can change that to different date ranges in the drop down menu on the right. 
  2. Find the Serving Date in the list that has the Volunteers and Items that you want to manage.
  3. To see who has signed up for serving dates and items, press the date in the left column. This will display a sliding window with a list of your volunteers who have signed up to fill your needs.
    • Needs listed to the right of Dates can be a "role" or an "item" that volunteers will sign up for. A Role is a serving position associated with a date and time. An Item is a donation like canned goods or bottled water that a volunteers sign up to bring.

  4. On this window there are a few actions you can take to manage your volunteers for a FUTURE serving date you chose:
    • If you have chosen a future serving date, the green action button will say Add Participant to assign volunteers to this serving date.
    • This window will also show you the participant's name, the need (Role and/or Item), the time they signed up for, approval status, and the response to a question asked (see project advanced options).Screen Shot 2020-02-24 at 1.35.00 PM
    • If you want to remove a volunteer from this time slot, press the trashcan icon to the right of their status. To change the status of the volunteer, click their status to reveal the Approve and Deny buttons. Learn more about approval statuses here (see items 4, 5, and 6).

  5. If you have chosen a PAST serving date there are different actions and options to manage your volunteers:
    1. The green action button will say Verify All to confirm the hours your volunteers served and the items they brought on this past date.

    2. This window will also show you the participant's name, their need (role or item), the time they served, check in and check out times (if they used that feature on their VOMO app), the total hours earned, and the verification status of these hours earned and items donated.
    3. If volunteer hours are "Unverified" for past dates in this project, you can verify them in the "Status" column for individual volunteers or "Verify All" for the entire list of volunteers.
