Include archived volunteer records on Excel spreadsheet reports.

Your Volgistics database is divided into non-archived and archived sections. The service hours for records in the archive will still appear on Service Summary and Service Details reports, and in your cumulative hours total. However, records in the archive cost less on a record-by-record basis because they are more limited than non-archived records. For example, archived volunteers cannot be scheduled, access VicNet or VicTouch, be tagged, or receive email or text messages.

Another important difference is that archived volunteer information is not available on most reports in Volgistics. If you need to run a report that includes information from archived records, you will need to use a custom Excel spreadsheet report and choose to include the archived records on the Options tab of the report. If you need help with this, please refer to Help topic 1997.
