Get new volunteers involved with VSP Enrollment forms
You can save time and make it easier for new people to get involved with online enrollment forms that can be posted on your organization's website! VSP administrators can customize the enrollment forms and have control over which forms get approved and when, which guarantees volunteers go through the necessary procedures before being placed on the schedule. Using enrollment forms makes it easy to engage new volunteers and gather their data in one place.
Start in the Web Terminal pane inside of VSP and click on the "Web Terminal settings..." button at the top of the Home tab.
In the new window that opens, click on the Enrollments heading on the left. Check the option that says, "Allow volunteers to submit enrollment forms." Let's also check the box below that which says, "Put a 'Sign up now' link to the enrollment form on the Web Terminal login page".
Use the sub-headings on the left that appear below the Enrollments heading to control the information collected on the forms. For example, click on the "Jobs" subheading, and you can check the box to "Allow volunteers to request their jobs during enrollment." You can give job descriptions by checking the "Show job descriptions" box, clicking on a job in the list, and giving that job a short description. This helps volunteers get an idea of what is required in that role during the enrollment process.
Note: When processing Enrollment forms, you as the administrator will have the ability to remove any job the volunteer may not be suited for.
Once you configure how the Enrollment forms should look, click on the main Enrollments heading again on the left. You will see the URL for the enrollment form online and a "Copy URL..." button - click it to copy this URL. Open a new email and select "Paste" and you can send this to your webmaster to place a link to sign up right on your website.
(Also when volunteers visit the Web Terminal home page, they will see a "Sign up now" link below the fields for Username and Password and can sign up that way as well.)
