    Is there a way I can schedule one person for the same volunteer role every Sunday, rather than manually scheduling him for each individual Sunday in the same role?

    Hey @mmm1802!

    Yes, you can absolutely easily, set a recurring schedule for volunteers! You will want to Navigate to the Event > Edit Event Settings > Click Volunteers > Click the Circle with Arrows Icon to the Right of the Volunteers Name > Set Recurring Schedule > Click Save. Hope you find this incredibly easy and breezy compared to manually inputting recurring schedules.

    We are hoping Breeze can replace our current rota system (SignUp.com)

    As a member in Breeze, I can view my volunteer assignments, but to made changes, the only security option is to allow access to the full Manage Volunteers - not a good idea!

    Would it be possible to add a security layer in between, to allow a member to assign (or decline) themselves (only) to a role(s) on any event(s)?

    Hope this is on your volunteer enhancements roadmap!

    I am getting error message that a person is already scheduled in the position I assigned them, but I cannot find them scheduled anywhere else. So far it has just been on one member.

    When I have input my volunteers, it is using their "First Name" "Last Name" instead of automatically defaulting to the "Nick Name" (example: Larry is Lawrence, Bella is Isabella) In the old Volunteer scheduling, it defaulted to their nickname. Can you help with this?

    Thanks for reaching out to the Forum today! The New Volunteer 2.0 does come with some differences from it's predecessor, however, it is continually be refined as well. Although I can't guarantee this will change, this feedback will certainly be taken into consideration with our Product Team.

    I'm trying to see if I can use Breeze in place of sign up genius.  Is there a way to do an event RSVP with volunteers that allows people to sign up to bring a side dish, main dish or drink (or something like that.)  I've created ROLES called "main dish", "side dish", etc with limits to those rolls.  People would be able to see what ROLES are still needed in real time and sign up or volunteer to bring those "roles." Is this possible?

    This is precisely how we suggest using Breeze to accomplish this. Great work! 

    If this is the functionality you're looking for, you should be able to fully use Breeze for this. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
