One of the main ways people have been engaging with their peers and organizations for decades is through volunteering. Many organizations already have members who volunteer, especially at the local level, but quite often this data is not properly managed or tracked and goes unnoticed at the national level. This potentially leaves untold numbers of highly engaged members in the dark and their potential in the organization or community untapped.

Higher Logic's Volunteer Manager allows your organization to build, manage, and provide a complete volunteer program for your constituents to not only increase engagement in your community but also in the real world. Volunteer Manager makes it easy to create opportunities, match volunteers to them, and track resulting data about those who participate in a single place, providing exponentially greater value to your organization and shining a light on your unsung heroes.
Volunteer Manager enables your organization to:
- Increase engagement through volunteering (e.g., committees, chapters, working at events, etc.).
- Track volunteering at all levels. This system allows you to create a near limitless variety of volunteer opportunities, giving all members a chance to participate, whether it be larger tasks like helping run a committee or chapter to something as simple as handing out badges at a local event or translating a blog article into another language.
If your community is integrated with a third-party database, some volunteering activities in your community can be written to that database during the standard activity-sync process.
- Navigate to Settings > External Content > Activity Sync in the Admin interface in order to manage writeback activities on the Subscriptions tab.
To learn about the activity-sync process, see Member Activity Sync.
