Search - By the Date of the Last Volunteer Status Change
Why Would You Change a Volunteer's Status?
Volunteers can begin with your organization with a status of “Applicant” or “Accepted”. You can change their status at any time. For example, you may wish to change a volunteer that will be away for an extended period of time to a status of “Inactive – Long Term”. If you have a volunteer that has moved out of the area (but you still wish to retain the profile), you can change the status to “Archived – Moved”.
