VolunteerSpot Software


 

VolunteerSpot volunteer scheduling software provides online sign-up sheets and easy volunteer rostering, streamlines event organization and can help boost turnout.

With VolunteerSpot, event organizers create sign-up forms and volunteer calendars that include available jobs and shifts and list items to bring, such as food and supplies. Volunteers are invited to join via a direct invitation or a link in a newsletter, website or social media post. Participants can sign up from any device without a password, and register for automated reminders to help them keep their commitments. Then organizers can conveniently track and report on service hours.

This volunteer coordination tool is well-suited for organizations of any size. Three service plans are available: basic, premium and a special campus plan for K-12 schools. All account levels provide calendar sync, shift-swapping, contribution collection and more. Premium accounts include bonus features, such as custom branding, additional registration form fields and partner packages for state, regional and national organizations.

In addition to a full-featured mobile website, VolunteerSpot also offers Sign Up, a professional convenience app for iPhone and Android, and Clipboard, a virtual clipboard app for iPad. Recognitions for this platform include: 10 best organizational apps by CoolMomTech; best online tools for organizing sports teams and booster clubs by FlipGive; and top 12 apps for back to school by Care.com.

Can't change the date once it's set. A lot and I mean a lot of emails are sent even with reminders off. The links expire too quickly. Editing is so old school and not at all user friendly or intuitive. It is not any easier than send out a mass email. It feels very outdated and it is frustrating. Even sending a help message was overly exhaustive. Usually it's your email and the question. This was every detail possible just to ask a question. Insane.

Recommendations

Not sure. Consider how easy it is, the cost, customer service and time

It's easy to setup volunteer email invitation. It's easy to see which spots are filled, and the name for the spot.

Likes Least

Not popular for the vendor. People are not familiar for the signing up.

Recommendations

Try for setup for different events. The key is to get people's name to the spot.

It is a little bit too time consuming. I would like to have something that is easier to learn so that more colleagues can use the same software.

Recommendations

Try it out and see what they think for themselves. They might like this or something else that is on the market.

Likes Least

I am not talking with a person and sometimes I don't get all the information I need to make informed decisions as to what I want to sign up for.

Recommendations

I can't think of any recommendations, other than to be certain to print out whatever they sign up for, for future reference in case there was an error.

Need to fix errors in code syntax, need to hide email address to prevent spamming, and need to add more keywords.

Recommendations

We use VolunteerSpot any time we need to organize volunteers to bring something or work a shift. The calendar is easy to create/manage for a one-day event or an entire year of events. Like the automated reminders and volunteers like that, they don't need a login and/or password. We have been using VolunteerSpot for years.

Ease of transaction. It allows me as the coordinator to organize the volunteer needs we have and then allows employees to input their information directly, therefore cutting down on the amount of time I need to spend going back and forth in communication with each person.

Likes Least

I don't always receive the updates when new volunteers have signed up, so I need to check the site for the most up-to-date information.

Recommendations

This is a great tool that's free and easy to use! It not only keeps things organized but provides a calendar hold for each volunteer so that they'll have the reminder on their calendar.
