There are two ways to recruit groups in VolunteerLocal. The easiest approach is to password protect a job or shift and then share that password with the group of volunteers you'd like to register online. This empowers each member of the group to register separately, which ensures accurate t-shirt sizes, email addresses and of course, waiver signatures.
The other option is to activate the "Group Signup" feature. Go to Events > Your Events > Event Detail and scroll to Optional Settings. Use the drop-down under Group Signup to choose how many volunteers any individual can indicate as a part of his/her group. Click “Save” at the bottom of the page.
Next, go to to Events > Your Events > Volunteer Information. Under each question, there is now an option to “Include this question for additional volunteers.” This creates a secondary form that must be completed on behalf of each group member, and can include such important details as mobile phone or t-shirt size.
! Note: Each group member will need to sign the waiver when he/she checks in at the day of the event. We cannot collect waiver signatures using this "Group Signup" methodology, as it inherently acknowledges that the primary leader is completing the form on behalf of each member.
