A volunteer application is used in Causeview Volunteers when an individual applies or signs up to volunteer for a shift on a volunteer role. The application saves information about the volunteer into Causeview, and is used to track the volunteer approval process. Volunteers are placed in shifts from the volunteer application detail page
Two different types of volunteer application exist: an individual application and a sign up. The individual application allows you to save information about volunteers, which will show up on the individual’s detail page, and allows you to track background check, reference check, and training progress. Individual applications should be used for new volunteers or for volunteers applying for a more advanced screening or training level. Sign up applications are used when a volunteer who is already saved in CV Volunteers and has the appropriate approval level would like to sign up for a new volunteer role.
