Tip of the Week August 24, 2020
Volgistics does not automatically keep a date record to indicate when a volunteer’s profile or contact information was last updated. However, you can use the spare fields on the Profile tab of volunteer records to create a custom field for tracking this information. Here is how to create a custom date field through Setup:
- Select Setup from the Menu.
- Choose Field Options.
- Choose Profile tab (for volunteers).
- Click on an unused Spare field.
- Change the Field format to Date, give your field a name, and change Hidden to No.
- Click Save.
When dates are stored like this you will be able to create a Set to identify volunteer records that were updated during a specific time period. System Operators will be able to use this field to note the date they updated a record, and through VicNet this field can allow volunteers and Coordinators to record when they updated the contact information last.
