We have updated and improved the functionality of setting your availability for an Activity. Up until now, Volunteers had to go through each occurrence of an activity and mark themselves as available (on managed rosters) or attending (on open rosters). Now we have the ability to go in and pick and choose which dates into the future you would like to set availabilities for over a set period of time! Check out the video below for more information:

To access the improved functionality,

  • Navigate to Activities and select an Activity that you are enrolled in

  • Select View Upcoming Dates

  • Click on the first date that you will be available from

  • Select the Session(s) that you would like to mark yourself available for

Here is where the new functionality comes in:

  • Choose the frequency that you would like to join, depending on the Activity frequency, this could be daily, weekly, fortnightly or select custom dates to join

  • If choosing daily, weekly or fortnightly you can then select a length of time into the future to set these availabilities. This could be 1 week, 1 month, 3 months 6 months or 12 months into the future

  • The dates selected will populate on the right hand side of the calendar at which point you can remove any dates that you know you can't attend or simply select "Done"

And from there, your availabilities will be set for the period you selected! Please note that for "Open Rosters" meaning you are marking yourself as "Attending" and not just available, this will work the same way and you will be on the roster for these nominated dates.
