Several major updates to existing functionality have been added in VolunteerHub. Each update in this release is listed below.
Emails No Longer Sent “on Behalf of” Users
Due to increased security measures taken recently by most popular email inbox providers such as Outlook and Gmail, VolunteerHub no longer sends emails on behalf of a user account’s email address. Instead, VolunteerHub will follow the industry standard of sending emails from a generic account while keeping the reply-to intact.
All emails sent from any VolunteerHub site will now be sent from “VolunteerHub Messaging.” No changes have been made to reply functionality, so administrative users will continue to receive replies to their VolunteerHub emails as follows:
If necessary, you may choose to include a note in your site's Schedule Message or send an email to your existing volunteers to let them know your organization's communications with them going forward will appear to be from "VolunteerHub Messaging." However, this is not required.
Language/Date Format Support for French and UK English
VolunteerHub’s Volunteer View now supports French and UK English! This update also includes support for the YYYY/MM/DD date format, which is applied automatically when selecting one of these new language preferences.
To select a language preference, a user who is not logged in may click the flag icon at the top of the screen. A user that's currently logged into your VolunteerHub site can click on their name, then click the language indicator in the menu that appears (see screenshot below).
Registration Wizard Return Filter Added
Per our previous January 2018 Release, a user may click “Back to Event List” to return to their original place in the schedule immediately after registering for an event. We’ve now added the ability to hold the user’s previous filter selection upon return to the schedule rather than returning them to the event with no filters applied.
Event Time Details Formatting
In our previous January 2018 Release we increased the clarity of information provided in the colored time pills above event names in Volunteer View. We’ve now updated the event date/time area above the Abbreviated Description as well as the Calendar view to be consistent with January’s update:
