Guide to Converting

Frequently asked questions about converting from VolunteerWorks are answered here.

If you use the VolunteerWorks program from Red Ridge, converting your existing volunteer information from VolunteerWorks into Volgistics is easy and free...

Step-by-step instructions for upgrading are available in the Upgrading from VolunteerWorks to Volgistics document listed under Resources on the left.

Once you have a Volgistics account you can convert your volunteer records from VolunteerWorks into Volgistics. Converting your volunteer data into Volgistics will not change the information in your VolunteerWorks database. If you're just testing to see how your data will appear in Volgistics you can continue using VolunteerWorks as usual and then convert your data from VolunteerWorks to Volgistics again later when you're ready to switch.

If you have VolunteerWorks version 3, you can use VolunteerWorks to convert your data to Volgistics yourself whenever you choose, or if you'd prefer (or if you use a version of VolunteerWorks that is older than version 3), Volgistics can convert it into your Volgistics account for you at no cost.
