How can I invite volunteers to use POINT?

Why should I invite my current volunteers to use POINT?

  1. To track your volunteer hours on the POINT dashboard, your volunteers must have a POINT account.

  2. POINT sends push notification reminders to your volunteers 1 week, 48 hours, and 2 hours before the event. We bug them so you don’t have to!

  3. We all know that email communications can be very ineffective - using POINT is a better way to engage with your volunteers. People are always on their phone anyway - meet them where they’re at!

Here’s how to make this happen:

Navigate to the “Volunteers” and find “Invite Volunteers”, then type in one email, or add all your volunteers at once by uploading a CSV.

  1. Your volunteers will receive an email with an invite code and a download link.

  2. This code will connect them with your charity! (Helpful Hint: One volunteer can belong to multiple organizations. High schools & companies can use the POINT dashboard to track their hours using this method too! Each volunteer gets a unique code for each organization they belong to. Goodbye, data entry!)
