Delegate Volunteer Hours Approval

Delegate Volunteer Hours Approval without adding workplace admins!

When we designed Uncommon Giving Volunteer, our primary goal was to respond to the needs of our users. One essential feature that emerged from this collaboration is the "Event Coordinator Approval." This feature provides a convenient way for volunteers to have their activities verified by designated individuals.

An additional benefit of this feature is its simplicity. Instead of involving nonprofit or event staff members in Volunteer Event Approval, you can simply direct your volunteers to send their Volunteer Hours to their respective department managers, leads, or volunteer coordinators. This streamlines the process, making it easier for both volunteers and organizational leaders to manage and track their contributions.

What's particularly exciting about this functionality is its flexibility. You have the power to delegate the responsibility of Volunteer Hours Approval to various team members, such as managers, department leads, or volunteer coordinators. Importantly, this delegation doesn't require these designated Approvers to become admins in your Uncommon Giving workplace; they only need access to an email address.

Once your designated Approvers give their approval for the submitted Volunteer Hours, these hours will be added to  "Pending" in the Volunteer - Activity view. You can then apply Admin Approval to the hours providing you with better control over the volunteer data, ensuring that the hours displayed accurately represent the actual impact of your company.

We're thrilled to offer this capability and hope it enhances your experience with Uncommon Giving Volunteer. If you have any questions or need further clarification on how to utilize this feature, please don't hesitate to reach out. We're here to ensure that your volunteer efforts are supported seamlessly.
