Volunteers for Salesforce Features

Volunteers for Salesforce provides the tools to manage your volunteer program.  You are able to track who your volunteers are and the hours they have worked, all of your volunteer jobs, both ongoing, and for a specific event, and shifts for specific jobs.  Volunteers for Salesforce also provides several Sites pages that you can host in your website to allow people to tell you they want to be a volunteer, or to actually signup for a specific job (and shift).

Volunteer Jobs & Shifts

Track the volunteer jobs and, optionally, shifts your organization needs filled.  Jobs are associated with a Campaign in Salesforce and track information such as the skills needed and location.  Shifts are available for each job to track a specific time and the desired number of volunteers you want.

Job Calendar

Volunteer Time Recording

Track the hours your volunteers work to make recognition and end-of-year reporting a simple task.  Volunteer hours are tracked along with jobs and shifts for specific events or on an ongoing basis then summarized on your volunteer’s contact records.

Website Integration

We provide 4 different Sites pages that you can host in your website to smoothly manage your volunteer program.  The pages include 1) general volunteer signup, 2) displaying available jobs & shifts listings with signup, 3) a calendar of available jobs and shifts, and 4) a page for volunteers to record the hours they have worked for you.  Information about your volunteer positions are dynamically updated and signup information is put right into your Salesforce database with no extra work from you.
