Include Assignment Descriptions and Opening Notes in Schedule Reminders

Tip of the Week February 28, 2022

We recently updated schedule reminder messages, and this gave us the opportunity to add two new options, which have both been popular feature requests. First, you can now include links to Assignment descriptions. This opens using the new version of the Opportunity Directory and provides your volunteers with details about the Assignment.

The schedule in Volgistics allows you to enter notes for an opening or for a scheduled volunteer. Previously, your schedule reminders could only include the entry notes, but the second new option allows you to add opening notes as well.

To see these new options and add them to your schedule reminders:

  1. Choose Setup from the menu
  2. Expand Scheduling.
  3. Click the type of reminder you’d like
  4. Here, you’ll see all of the available options, including the two new ones, in the Include section.
  5. If you make any changes, be sure to click the Save button.

You can learn more about schedule reminders and how to set them up in help topic 2273 Schedule Reminders.
