Finding a Volunteer’s Application Date

Tip of the Week April 10, 2023

If you use online application forms to receive information from prospective volunteers, you may sometimes need to know when a volunteer submitted their application. There are a few ways you can find this date.

If you haven’t received the application yet, you can see the date it was submitted by choosing Mailbox from the menu and going to the Applications tab. There, you can see the date each application was submitted in the Posted column.

If you’ve already received the application, you can head to the History tab in the volunteer’s record. Here, the date entered is the date you received the application, but the first Status date is when the application was submitted. However, you should keep in mind that this date can be edited.

You can also see the date an application was submitted by heading to your account’s Event Log. To get there, choose Setup from the menu, expand Account Management, and click Event Log. The log will show an Event called “Application Submitted” and the Description column will list the applicant’s name. In many cases, you can speed up the search if you’re looking for a particular name by using your browser’s Find feature. This is typically accessed by pressing CTRL+F on your keyboard.
