    This is awesome! Will this be included with our current subscription or will there be added cost to use volunteer management 2.0?

    @musicafcraine We think it is pretty awesome too, we are just as excited about it! It will be included with your current subscription, no additional cost! Look for it to be rolling out to your church in the near future!

    Sweet! If I set groups up in 2.0 BETA, will they carry over to the live version when that is pushed out?

    It would be beneficial to have the ability to assign volunteers at the "Team" level in addition to the "Roles" level.  Somewhat similar to the previous version.  This would allow the administrator to add all of the volunteers within a tagged team and assign the roles in one step rather than having to click add volunteer for each individual role.   

    I currently have all of my worship singers and musician in tags by teams, when I schedule them I simply select the tag for Team 1,2, or 3, and assign individual roles once everyone as been added.  Having a similar function within in Volunteer Management 2.0 would mean less clicks for the administrator (clicks=load time).

     Any settings that you create within the Beta version of volunteer management 2.0 will continue to exist once it goes live. This is already happening with several churches around our customer base! 

    Additionally, thank you for your feedback concerning Volunteer management 2.0! Your input is invaluable to making sure our product is working best for our customers. 

    Blessings!

    Is there a way to view a list of individuals’ black out dates that are set in specific tags, so that we can assign according to availability?

    Thanks for reaching out to the community! To answer your question, no. There's currently no place to only print out black out dates....however, f they've been blacked out, then you won't be able to schedule them. This ensures that you always have available people scheduled!

    Blessings!

    I agree with the person above, if you could allow volunteers to be added at the team level as well and then allow titles to be added after the names it would speed up our process when adding multiple volunteers and multiple schedules.

    Is there a way to add volunteers to random (not neatly recurring) days in a recurring event.  For instance, the event happens weekly and a two out of a group of volunteers are scheduled each week according to their availability.

    Thanks for reaching out to the Forum! You could certainly add Volunteers (at random) to any event that you would like to. Even if you wanted to recur two people and let the other positions remain open, you could do that. 

    If you have additional questions, i would suggest you give us a call so that we can walk through this with you! 

    Thanks!

    We often get verbal accpetance of the volunteer roles. Especially from people who do not check email or use smart phones alot. Is there a quicker way for me to accept the position for an entire series (current event ran from Sept-Dec) for a volunteer without having to go into every event occurance in the series in the grid view to click their name and "accept"? Thanks for your help.

    Is it possible under Mail Merge to add {EVENTDESCRIPTION]?  It would be nice to add the lesson plan for that week.
