Email Notifications to Volunteers

What is an Email Notification to Volunteers?

An email notification to volunteers is an automatically generated email sent by the system. There are two types.

  • Your welcoming email that a volunteer can receive after completing your application form
  • A schedule reminder email if the volunteer opted in to receive it in MyVolunteerPage.com

Welcoming Email to New Applicants

  1. Go to: Configuration >> Organization Settings >> Application Form Settings
  2. Click on the tab corresponding to the desired Application Form
  3. Check the box “Automatically send an email to new volunteers after the volunteer application form is filled out”
  4. Enter the text for the “New Volunteer Email Message”
  5. Click the [Save] button at the bottom of the screen

Volunteer: Opt-In to a Schedule Reminder

Note

The schedule reminder email is an “opt-in” feature and, therefore, must be set up by the volunteer when logged on to MyVolunteerPage.com. An administrator cannot enable this for the volunteer.

A volunteer can turn this on by completing the following steps

  1. Log on to MyVolunteerPage.com
  2. Click on the “MY PROFILE” tab
  3. Click on the “Contact Information” section
  4. Below “EMAIL”, click the [Subscribe to Weekly Schedule Reminders] button in the “Subscription” section

Volunteer: Subscribe to a Calendar Feed

Volunteers can subscribe to a calendar feed so that they can view their scheduled activity assignments in their own personal calendar (e.g. Gmail, Outlook).

A volunteer can turn this on by completing the following steps

  1. Log on to MyVolunteerPage.com
  2. Click on the “MY PROFILE” tab
  3. Click on the “Contact Information” section
  4. Below “CALENDAR”, click the [Update Calendar Subscription] button in the “Subscription” section
  5. Click the [Generate New Calendar Feed] button
