INVITING VOLUNTEERS is Easy!
- From your management area, go to the 'Volunteers' page and select 'Invite Volunteers'. Then, you can choose how to invite your volunteers. You can also invite volunteers from the 'Invite' page as well.
If you have a mailing list, you can simply use your email client and copy and paste the link into an email to your volunteers
- Alternatively, you can choose to invite new volunteers by entering one or many e-mail addresses or by sharing a link via your current social networks
*TIP: when you send an invite, encourage the first steps that you would like volunteers to take (e.g. complete their profile, sign up for a position you posted, share a story about their peers).
INVITING ADMINISTRATORS & EMPLOYEES
You can give employees of your organization admin privileges to your organization's Do Some Good account by:
- Go to the 'Admins & Employees' page in your management area
- Press the 'Invite Admins' or 'Invite Staff' button and type in the email of the employee you would like to make an admin or staff. Refrain from sharing this link publicly, as it will automatically connect the user to your company as an employee or admin.
- If they are already an employee, go to the "Admins & Employees" page in your Management area and you can change their permissions from 'Employee' to 'Administrator'
*TIP: IF you want to invite your staff, all you have to do is copy and paste the link into your mailing list
