Store websites for volunteer records

Volunteer records in Volgistics have a “Web site” field on the Core tab. On group records, this field can be used to record the organization’s website. On individual volunteer records, you can record the volunteer’s personal web page or their page on sites such as Facebook, Twitter, or Google Plus.

When a valid URL address is recorded in this field, you can include a Visit link by the field. This link will take you directly to the website entered in the field. If you’re already signed into your account, such as Facebook, the link provides an easy way to go to the volunteer’s page and do something like make a post on their timeline or send an in box message.

If the Web site field is hidden in your account, or the Visit link is not enabled, you can change this by:

  1. Select Setup from the menu.

  2. Expand the Field options link.

  3. Select Core tab.

  4. Select Web site.
