Tip of the Week April 02, 2018

Add links to training videos, web pages, and more on the VicNet module.

If your organization uses the VicNet module you can place a link on the Home tab of VicNet to training materials the volunteers need. Volunteers can login and click the link to be taken to the web address that has the information. This allows you to post links to training sites for your volunteers, but not make these links available to the general public.

Please note that there is not a way for the actual content of the web site (i.e. the training video, document, PowerPoint, etc.) to be hosted through Volgistics. You will need to host the material on your organization’s web site, host it on a third party’s site (such as Screencast or YouTube), or use an existing web site that already has the material in place.

The setup uses an image as the link to the URL address. Once you have an image to use, follow the process shown in help topic 2288. It will work the same even though you’re not setting up an advertisement. You can see an example of how this is used to link to the Volgistics’ volunteer training videos in our Sample accounts.
