As you may know, we’ve been working hard on a new version of VicNet. After a successful closed beta period with a relatively small group of accounts, we’re ready to open up the new version for everyone! It is still a beta release, which means it’s pretty close to how the final version will look and function, but we’re still planning a series of updates for it before sunsetting the old legacy version. You can learn all about the changes in help topic 4001 Introducing New VicNet, but we’ve included some of our favorites below.
Now that the beta is open, all accounts have the option to try it out and provide feedback. We’re eager to hear from you about any problems you find or suggestions you have for improving it even more.
This new version of VicNet has been completely redesigned with a sleeker, more modern interface.
It’s mobile responsive, so it looks great no matter what size device you’re using.
And there’s an array of theming options, so it’ll match your organization’s branding.
Let’s talk features too!
The Mail page looks more like a regular email inbox now, and includes a new message indicator.
The Schedule has been completely revamped, and now allows volunteers to choose between monthly, weekly, daily, and agenda views.
In addition, a comprehensive filter allows them to see just the things they want to see, and the printable view lets them make a hard copy.
Volunteers can also print out their own service history, which can save you time generating reports for those who need to report their hours for school or work.
We’ve also made it work with the browser’s navigation controls, so the back, forward, and refresh options all work as you’d expect them to. Plus the new VicNet supports tabbed browsing.
We’re really excited to have you try out the new VicNet, and have your volunteers try it out too. When you do, please let us know what you think. We always want to hear from you, but it’s especially true during this beta period. And be sure to keep an eye out for even more updates as they roll out.
