    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.

    I created a team but I need to delete it. How do I delete a team?

    You can delete a Team by selecting Modify Roles. Once you're there, you can edit both Roles and Teams!

     

    Cheers!

    When requesting volunteers in the original system (not 2.0), and you send an email to "All Volunteers in the Last 6 months" - who does that go to? Is it the volunteers for just that specific event or in a certain role for that event, or does it open up to any volunteer in the system?

    That email would go to any scheduled volunteer within the last 6 months. Please let us know how we can continue to serve you!

    Scheduled for what specifically ... I'm trying to figure out if it goes to the volunteers in that event or to all volunteers in the system?

    In 1.0, this would go to anyone who has volunteered/confirmed a position in any capacity in the last 12 months. Not just the ones who are scheduled for the the current Event. I hope clears up any confusion! 

    Blessings,

    In volunteers 2.0, is there a way to have a "generic link" (not user specific) for signup sheets?  I'd like to have a link on our website to signup for an event that might have volunteers who are not already in breeze sign up.  Then as part of signing up to volunteer, they would add their name/e-mail.  Is that possible?

    @cstriffler That's a neat idea! However, at this time that is not a current feature within Breeze, but we're happy to think it over. I can certainly see where this could be helpful. I'll share your idea with the team here. We appreciate your input. I should also mention that at this time we are not taking feature requests on this platform, but we would love for you to Submit a Feature Request so that our development team can have it when they plan out our future road map of features! 

    One suggestion is to have people sign up on a Form that they are interested to Volunteer, then have the system Auto-Tag those Form Respondents. You could then send the Sign Up Sheet to anyone who is in the tag of those interested to Volunteer.
