VolunteerHub August 2019 Release Notes
Posted by Matthew Murphy on 20 August 2019 08:44 AM

Several updates to functionality have been added in VolunteerHub. Each update in this release is listed below.

Kiosk v2

Kiosk has been updated and now features responsive sizing, allowing for seamless use across devices of various sizes. 

There have also been several changes to functionality, noted below:

  • Kiosk's URL has changed to contain a '2'.  Any existing bookmarks to Kiosk will need to be updated if you wish to use Kiosk v2. (Any old Kiosk bookmarks will continue to work, in the original version of Kiosk.)
  • Accessing Kiosk will log you out of VolunteerHub Admin.  This provides a higher level of security.

Kiosk App via Chrome

Using Google Chrome, you can save Kiosk to a device as a web-app.

Step for this can be found in our Kiosk Knowledgebase Article.

Larger text boxes when creating and editing Events

The fields for the Event Details as well as the Email Notifications have been made larger and can be resized from the bottom right.

When editing an Event or Recurrence Master, the pane on the right now expands for both more room and to view/edit Rich Text Editor boxes more easily.

Volunteers searching without needing to log in

Volunteers can now search through available opportunities before logging in (assuming your site does not require immediate login).

Slots Remaining

Events now display the slots remaining for an event, as well as the numbers of filled, reserved, and the limit.  This replaces the 'Slots Left' number from Classic.

Event drop-down now shows Short Description

Clicking within the white-space of an event on the Events list now shows the Short Description in addition to the registered users.

Keyword Searching for Events

The Events page now contains a search box in addition to the filter.  Keyword searches can be used in tandem with the existing filtering options.

Quick options for Events

Events listed on the Events page and Dashboard now include an ellipsis button for quick access to common options.  Preview Event will bring you directly to the Volunteer View of the event.

Past Instances of Recurrence Masters

A date-picker now appears within a Recurrence Master to allow for viewing past instances.

Deleted Recurrence Masters & Events

The Recurrence Masters page in Admin 2.0 now contains a filter allowing the viewing of deleted Recurrence Masters:

The ellipsis button for deleted Masters contains an option to undelete:

The filter on the Events page now allows for viewing deleted Events:

I have never had the joy of working with a developer that actually takes my suggestions seriously and works them into future releases. It makes me feel valued as a client. Some of these additions will definitely make my job easier! We've already made use of "viewing past events from the Master", and the shortcut to the volunteer view of an event is going to save a lot of extra navigating. Thank-you!!!
