Use the Travel Time Merit Hour rule to add drive time to volunteer service.

Some organizations like to add a volunteer’s drive or travel time into their volunteer service contributed. If you give an average, or estimated, drive time, you can have Volgistics automatically add this onto the volunteer’s service entries by using Merit Hours.

This feature allows you to give an equal amount of travel time (such as 30 minutes) to all volunteers. Or you can create Flags to identify an estimated drive time for the volunteer. For example, you may have a Flag for “½ hour,” “1 hour,” “1 ½ hours,” etc. Place the appropriate Flag on the volunteer records it applies to.

You can find more information on setting up the Travel Time Merit Hours feature in Help topic 1210.
