Creating Managed Volunteers

Creating Managed Volunteers allows nonprofit admins to track hours and volunteer information for folks who don’t want to create a profile on POINT or aren’t familiar with using technology.

Please note: When you create a managed volunteer profile, that profile only exists on your organization’s dashboard. The volunteer cannot access the information you enter into a managed volunteer profile.

Adding a Volunteer Manually

From the Contacts page, click Actions > Add Volunteer Manually. Enter the required information and click “Add volunteer”. Once a volunteer has been added, you will be able to assign this volunteer to events, add them to groups, and track their hours.

Why do I need birthday and gender?

Adding the birthday and gender to a manually added volunteer will keep your stats and overall volunteer demographics accurate. If you don’t know the volunteer’s birthday, entering your best guess will help with those stats.

You have the ability to add other volunteer data if you’d like to store it in your system, like volunteer email and address.

Adding a Managed Volunteer to an Event

From the event check-in page, click Actions > Assign Spot. This will fill a spot on the event and add that volunteer’s name to the event checkin.

Note: As this profile only exists on your dashboard, the volunteer will not receive push notifications or event reminders. This action will fill a spot on the event and add stats to your Event Stats page.
