You define a schedule of times when volunteers are needed (i.e. Mondays 9 - 5 and Fridays 9 - 12) on an ongoing basis. Volunteers can express interest in the opportunity and propose one or more times they are available to attend within the schedule you’ve defined. You then simply confirm the volunteer if you approve of their proposed schedule.Express Interest Only
Use when you simply want to allow a volunteer to express interest in an opportunity, but don't want them to propose when they will volunteer. Does not require a location for the opportunity. There is no need to confirm or schedule interested volunteers, though you can choose to do so administratively if you wish. This simply generates a list of interested volunteers.
Used with Date and Time specific schedule to automatically sign up and confirm any volunteer who meets the opportunity requirements. When maximum attendance is reached, volunteers will have the option of joining the waitlist for that opportunity.Express Interest
Used with Date and Time specific schedule allowing volunteer to express interest in that occurrence. You must then review and either confirm or decline that volunteer to participate. Useful if you need to do background checks or go through other processes before confirming a volunteer to participate.
Use this type of schedule when you need a certain number of volunteers, all of whom will be volunteering on the same date, start time and end time. You can create one or more ‘occurrences” of dates and times for this opportunity.Individually Scheduled
Use when you have a flexible schedule of when you need volunteers, and each volunteer may be scheduled to attend at a different date and time over an extended time period. Can also be used when you simply want volunteers to express their interest, without having to specify when or where the volunteer activity will take place.
