NEW IN VERSION 5.7

Touch-Screen Assistant Messaging
If you use the optional Touch-Screen Assistant, you can now send messages to your volunteers whenever they sign in or out. You can send messages to individuals, filtered groups, or everyone. You can set messages that will be sent throughout the year whenever any type of volunteer's renewal date comes due. Birthday messages will also be sent automatically, if you choose.

Jobs as Clients
Sometimes volunteers serve with a particular person instead of at a job. We have modified Jobs in order to accommodate serving with individual clients. You can track a clients name, address, birthday, age, sex and several other items specific to Foster Grandparent and Senior Companion programs.

Bigger Screens
You can drag screens longer as well as higher in order to see more information on one screen.

Double-Click Jumping
You can quickly jump from one section of the Reporter to another by double-clicking. For example, from the Job/Client screen, double-click on the station field and you jump straight to that station's record.

Stipends for Volunteer
You can choose to pay a stipend to some or all of your volunteers for their volunteer service. Stipends are calculated automatically when entering hours although you can change the amount. In order for a stipend to be calculated, the volunteer must be checked as being a stipended volunteer and the job must be checked as being a stipend job with a default stipend amount for each job. This enables you to restrict stipends to only some volunteers at some jobs. You can also set an overall default stipend in Preferences.

More Powerful Filters
For every filter limitation, you can now select whether the item is blank or not blank as well as a specific value or range of values. For example, you can create a filter of just volunteers who don't have a birth date.

New Reports

Three new reports for the Web Assistant. Hours and Reimbursements Waiting for Approval, by station, job, and volunteer.
