Getting Started with POINT:

Welcome! We are so happy to have you on board! First thing’s first, we are here for you. If you ever need anything, reach out to support@pointapp.org and we will fix you right up.

Now, for the basics.

  • POINT is a dual app and dashboard volunteer engagement system used by community organizations, charities, schools, and businesses. Your students use the POINT app (iPhone, Android and if they don’t have a smart phone they can login here). You, as the school admin(s), use the POINT dashboard.

  • POINT dashboard accounts are available for designated admins at your school. Make sure you use your school domain email when registering. If you want to use POINT on your own to get involved, you can make a separate account using a personal email.

  • School dashboard accounts are set up with a main admin and one or more group admins. The main admin is responsible for things that involve the general student body, and a group admin may be responsible for a specific sub-group of students (like a grade or club).

Admins can create and manage groups, recommend charity events, create private events for their students, and access analytics and reporting. Admins cannot create or force students to create accounts.

Please respect your student’s data and only publicly report volunteering metrics in aggregate. When students sign up to volunteer with a charity, they may be asked to provide personal information like their name, city, email, or phone number. This is ONLY shared with the charity, and used for their volunteer registration purposes. We will never sell user data, and we ask that you do your part in keeping user data protected as well.

Are you ready to dig into the nitty gritty details? We *think* we’ve got everything covered, but if you ever have a question that isn’t answered here, you can always reach out to us and we will get you an answer as quickly as we can!
