While Parent Booker is designed to provide self-service so that parents can sign up themselves for slots, sometimes volunteer coordinators need to take matters into their own hands and assign volunteers to slots.
A brand new feature in Parent Booker lets coordinators achieve this – a new “Assign” link appears next to empty slots allowing the coordinator to browse a list of volunteers and assign them to the slot. When assigned an email is sent to the volunteer automatically letting them know they’ve been assigned.
It’s perfect for situations such as:
- when you can’t afford to wait for people to sign up
- mandatory volunteer duties
- when volunteers have signed up via other methods (word of mouth)
- filling last minute volunteer slots
