Volunteers registered for an event which allows Self-Reporting of hours now may only report those hours once the event has begun.

Hi VolHub,

Our organization is getting started using VolunteerHub Admin 2.0. There are a lot of great updates and we love the new interface!

Though when we have gone to email from an event and double checked the list of email addresses the event email would go to, the list would be about 13,000 users versus the 5 users we were attempting to email. Since it would be a big problem to email 13,000 users about an event only 5 users are registered for, we have not used the email function since. Are others having this issue? Is this something VolunteerHub is working on fixing?

Also, as a small sidenote, landing pages no longer state the dimensions for the logo or the banner graphic.

We are definitely going to be needing the email feature so any assistance getting it up and running again would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you!

Hi Andy,

Thank you for the feedback!

The email issue (on an Event) is indeed something we're working on fixing. When you click the link to export the email addresses, all user emails are appearing, not just the ones who would actually get the email. You can continue to use Classic Admin to do this until it's fixed. It should be fixed in the next release.

As for the image dimensions, those should still be visible. When creating or editing a landing page, do you see an "(i)" symbol next to the UPLOAD LOGO GRAPHIC and UPLOAD BANNER GRAPHIC sections? Roll over that and you should see a pop-up that gives you the dimensions.

Those (i) symbols are now scattered throughout Admin 2.0, to help explain what different settings are.

If you don't see those or have further questions on Admin 2.0, please send us a message via the link in the upper-right corner of this site to ensure you get a fast and accurate response, as we do not monitor Knowledgebase article comments as regularly.
