Create and apply regionalized filters to volunteer opportunities

Rather than seeing all volunteer opportunities in one queue, you can now filter opportunities by region so that you can easily manage and approve the ones that are relevant to you. We'll help you create the filters in your demographic data, and then you can apply the filters in your Bulk Manager.

  • Created By Me (includes both user-created and company-created opportunities)

Recommended filters:

  • Country

  • State/Province

  • City

  • Office Location

  • Business Unit

How to apply regionalized filters

  1. Sign into your program.
  2. Select Manage.
  3. Go to Volunteer > Bulk Manager.
  4. Choose from the available options under Filter by Author. In the example below, the opportunities will filter by country (United States).

Regionalized action items on your Admin Dashboard

Your action items on the Admin Dashboard will now include items sorted by regionalized filters. You can quickly jump from the action items into a filtered queue showing Volunteer Opportunities submitted by users who match that field.

FAQ

What are the regionalized views filtering?

The filters are looking for a match between the user doing the filtering and the author of the Volunteer Opportunity. If the user applying the filter is in Toronto, and selects the Toronto filter, they will only see Volunteer Opportunities created by users who are tagged as “Toronto” users in the demographic data.

Does the “Created By Me” filter show company-created or user-created opportunities?

It shows both.
