Volunteer Comments

Volunteer Comments is an alternative to Volunteer Questions, and gives the race the option to have volunteers populate the Volunteer Notes field during volunteer registration.  The race can turn it on in Volunteer Setup

and when they fill it out and register, the race can see it and edit it in the already existing Volunteer Notes text area.

Reorder Volunteer Tasks

Some races have large lists of Volunteer Tasks (some even have hundreds). We have implemented the same drag and drop reordering capability we have on content and menu pages. The option is at the bottom of the Volunteer Task page:

After you click on Edit Order, you will see all of your Categories and Tasks. You can drag and drop these into any order (and remember to “Save”).

Volunteer List in EMail Marketing

screen-shot-2017-01-05-at-12-47-56-pmWe have added Volunteers as a simple list in EMail Marketing. This makes it simple to include Volunteers on emails, or to use the EMail marketing system to communicate directly with them.

They appear in both the Send Email quick pick list, as well as when building custom lists. Since it shows each Task, you can target specific tasks or Categories.
