Preview what volunteers see when they login to VicNet

If your organization uses the VicNet module, you may want to preview what a volunteer sees when he or she logs-in. This can be useful when you’re doing things such as setting up Vic self-scheduling to see if you’ve set it up correctly. One way to do this is to go to your organization’s VicNet portal and enter the volunteer’s email address and password. However, this can be time consuming and may require you to reset the volunteer’s password.

You can also bypass these steps by previewing VicNet from the Vic tab of the volunteer’s record. Here’s how to do this:

1. Select Volunteers from the Menu.
2. Locate the volunteer’s record and click on the name.
3. Click the Vic tab.
4. If the VicNet section shows “Access is OK,” click the Preview button to see VicNet. If the tab does not show “Access is OK,” Help topic 2161 may be helpful.
