Within VolunteerMatters, an administrator with the proper privileges can select a shift, or multiple shifts, from a volunteer calendar and then send Volunteer Email Invitations to those specific volunteer opportunities to contacts in their database.
This functionality is available for all Standard, Pro, and Enterprise subscribers.
Only Enterprise subscribers can customize the invitation template. If you are interested in customizing the template please contact VolunteerMatters support.
To do so you will log into VolunteerMatters and click on Admin > Volunteer Calendars and then click on Shifts for the Calendar you wish to send invitations for. You can also click on Admin and then click on the Volunteer Calendar icon directly. Then you can follow these instructions:
1 - Select the volunteer opportunities where you have a need via the checkbox on the far left and then click "invite" icon ()
2 - The system will automatically seed the bulk email utility with information for those opportunities along with a button and link to "learn more" that will take the contact directly back to the shift in question.
3 - The administrator can then utilize the Chooser to select recipients for the email, customize the text and click "Save and Preview" and if they are satisfied they can click "Send"
