Although Volaby allows volunteers to select their availability and join activities, not all volunteers are proactive in doing so. To support your volunteers in joining an activity, the following steps can be taken.
To add a volunteer to an activities team:
Click into the Activities Console and click the activity you wish to add a volunteer to
Click Team, then Edit Team and Add Team Members (select the volunteer/s you wish to add). The volunteer will then appear on the team for that activity moving forward. This means that you can easily roster them on in the future. If you want to remove volunteers from a team, click Edit Team, and click the red X next to the volunteer/s you wish to remove.
If you have managed rosters - then roster a volunteer onto a shift:
Click into the Activities Console and click on the Activity you wish to add a volunteer to.
Go to the day and date of the activity in the future. Depending on the activity you may have volunteers who have indicated their availability or not.
Click Show all other volunteers. This will bring up a list of all your volunteers for that activity.
Look for the volunteer/s you wish to add.
Hover over the No Indication button and click it for the applicable volunteers. Once clicked, you will see To Be Rostered appear.
You will see the Publish Roster or Save Changes button appear at the bottom of the screen. You can choose to publish the roster and volunteers will be emailed so they know they are rostered.
