Time Clock Volunteers
You can Time Clock workers or volunteers in a variety of ways, depending on the program set up – use the Clocker function to search by name for one-click clock in, and have the volunteer clock out using the Supervisor’s SmartPhone, in the Supervisor Portal. It’s simple to keep track of shift completion with festiVOL!
Workers can follow along with their shift completion within their account – this helps prevent issues following the event that can easily be resolved onsite at the event, such as a Supervisor neglecting to clock out a worker. It’s way easier to deal with issues onsite at the event, when everyone is reachable by radio or cell, than days later when folks have scattered!
Make Changes on the Fly
festiVOL was built by a team of volunteer and labor coordinators – we know what it’s like to run an event (!!) Flexibility and Communication are KEY to onsite labor management
– Move Volunteers to different positions at the click of a button
– View and Print Lists of volunteers by shift, department, day, and/or time
– Communicate – send individual or group texts based on shift or other statuses, or to the entire event, or simply workers that have arrived and checked in
– RatePerformance of workers following completion of each shift
– Add a Clock or Check in Flag on a worker and ensure a message reaches them, or admin is called when they arrive at HQ
– View Live Data on the entire program on how many workers are clocked in per department, vs the number requested for that shift
– View data on Missing Clock ins or Clock outs and text workers who are delinquent
Completed Shifts (√)
Once all shifts are completed, the worker’s Work Obligation is marked as complete in their account – when using Reimbursable Tickets, this is a very clean and easy way for volunteers to see that they are all set to be refunded!!
With Reimbursable Tickets, processing refunds is super simple – simply decide who will not receive a reimbursement due to missing shifts or other reasons, and mark those folks as Reimbursement Forfeited. Then festiVOL will allow you to reimburse all volunteers that completed their work obligation with one click – REFUND! And the Event Ticket Step within each reimbursed workers account will be marked as Refunded 🙂
