Galaxy Digital is excited to announce a brand new feature in Get Connected! We heard from our awesome agency managers that they wanted to be able to check in their volunteers and record hours while a need is taking place. We thought it was such a great idea that our development team has come up with a solution called Volunteer Check-in and we think you’re going to love it!
Starting today, agency managers will see a new “Check-in” tab in their agency management area. They can use that tab on a computer or mobile device to sign volunteers in and out and log their volunteers’ hours at the same time. They can even register new volunteers who show up unexpectedly! And any hours that are logged through Volunteer Check-in are automatically approved and applied to the volunteer’s résumé and the agency’s stats.
We know that volunteer activities can take many forms, so we’ve created two different ways to use Volunteer Check-in. In the first, Agency managers can use the “list” option to see the names of everyone who has signed up for a need and check in each volunteer who is in attendance. Alternatively, they can use the “individual” option to allow volunteers to check themselves in and out as they come and go -it’s just that simple!
This has been one of our most requested features this year, so we’re thrilled to finally get it in the hands of our agencies!
