Some of our volunteers do not want to go through a lengthy process of signing up then applying for opportunities. They would just rather select an opportunity, apply, enter their basic information and that’s it.
We have implemented a feature which is the Guest Login. Guest Login allows volunteers to bypass the entire volunteer signup because a volunteer account won’t be created for them.
To enable this feature, the organization must turn off the option which requires Volunteer Login. Go to Configurations > Volunteer Signup > Login Required to Apply for an Opportunity > Turn Off.
You will also be able to configure the Profile Benefit Message which enumerates the reasons why a volunteer should Signup and create a volunteer profile instead of logging in as guest.
Here’s the new Guest Login flow:
- After the volunteer clicks the Apply button for an opportunity, a pop-up would tell them to either Create/Login to a Volunteer Profile or Apply Without Creating a Profile (Guest Login).
- After the volunteer selects Guest Login, he/she will be required to enter his/her full name and email. The email is necessary so the volunteer receives the application confirmation as well as his/her volunteering schedule.
- After hitting Next, the volunteer will need to fill up an application form specific to the opportunity. Otherwise, the system will automatically submit the application.
- The volunteer will then receive a confirmation of the opportunity application. On the other hand, the organization will be notified and will proceed with the next steps for the volunteer. All communication and notifications are sent to the volunteer’s email.
