Volunteer & Assignment Matching
Volgistics’ matching features for volunteers and assignments were recently revamped to make them more user-friendly and practical for regular use. Now, in lieu of categories or ‘levels’ of matching, volunteers are now considered as matching-or not matching-an assignment based on the criteria selected for that assignment record.
The revised matching features can be a great way to place volunteers in assignments based on specific requirements or qualifications they possess, helping service to be allocated efficiently. Matching can be used to find volunteers who fit the needs of particular service events or locations and can even be setup to determine eligibility for those assignments, automatically allowing volunteers to schedule themselves where they’re a good fit. Help topic 2249 explains more about the new Volunteer & Assignment Matching features, and you can learn more about the update in the blog.
