Hours of Operation Settings¶
Hours of Operation
You can set your organization's 'hours of operation' in Volgistics. Setting your hours of operation makes certain functions - such as scheduling and availability tracking - easier by listing only the times that occur during the hours you operate.
Your hours of operation are the hours of the day volunteers typically serve.
To set your hours of operation:
- Choose Setup from the menu.
- Expand Scheduling
- Select Ground Rules
- Under Hours of operation select the earliest time of day volunteers typically serve as the Start at time. Select the latest time of day volunteers typically end their service as the End at time.
For example, if your earliest volunteers typically start at 7:00 am; and volunteers typically complete their service by 10:00 pm; enter
7:00 am as your Start at time and
10:00 pm as your End at time.
If volunteers serve around the clock, choose
12:00 am as your Start at time and your End at time.
- Click the Save button.
If your organization does not need to schedule volunteers around-the-clock, it's best to select the earliest time you typically schedule volunteers for your Start at time; and the latest time volunteers would typically serve until as your End at time. This makes scheduling and availability tracking easier by eliminating all of the unnecessary times from the time drop down lists on your schedule and availability time fields.
