Hours Reporting

Volunteers log their volunteer/education hours using the hours reporting tool.  An hours entry can be filed under a state-wide or county-wide project and can be connected to a specific calendar event.  In addition, demographic information about the population served can be recorded.  Program Coordinators can easily view these recorded hours in a number of reports.

Event Tracking

When gardening events are entered into the VMS calendar, Volunteers can be allowed to sign up to the event; they will receive email notifications as the event approaches.  Other volunteers and administrators can easily view who has signed up either from the event view itself or from the monthly calendar view (below).

Roster Management

From the VMS member roster, administrators can manage the status, interests, and projects of the volunteers in their programs and contact those volunteers based upon their status, interests, or by their involvement in specific projects.
