Coming Attractions: Shifts

We have been working hard to roll out our newest feature: shifts! We are so excited to share what we have been working on. Here are some highlights of the new feature:

Employee Volunteer experience:

  • Can see multiple shifts at one time, and which ones are still accepting sign-ups
  • The following information is easily accessible to employees:
    • Shift name 
    • Shift duration
    • Shift last day to sign up
    • Number of volunteers needed for each shift
  • Mobile responsive compatibility for employees viewing shifts
  • Employees can easily sign up guests

Shift Leader and Administrator experience:

  • Enhancement added to the activity listing flow to allow date, time, and role-specific shift creation
  • Conveniently located and context specific tool tips, to get all admins and leaders the information they need to create and manage opportunities with shifts
  • All communication and notifications inherited at the opportunity level (flows automatically cascade into shifts)
  • Add or remove employees to different shifts from the Manage Participants Page (where all shifts are clearly displayed)
  • Shift guest sign up and hours tracking capabilities to maximize volunteer engagement and participation
  • Reporting and grouping available by shifts
  • Overall, more information up front for a seamless management & volunteer experience for all users

We hope you are as excited as we are about all that the shifts feature has to offer. We will have an alpha available to view and test at the VM Summit this October, and plan on releasing this feature in early 2017. Stay tuned!
