Adding a Placement

In order for a volunteer to show up on the Touch-Screen Assistant, the Web Assistant, or to add hours, the volunteer must have a placement. [Touch-Screen Assistant and Web Assistant volunteers need a PIN or password, respectively, to enter their own hours.]

In order to add volunteer hours, the volunteer must have a placement. Set up the Station, the Job and the Placement in that order.

A station has to have at least one job to which a volunteer can be assigned. After you create a job for the station, you can then give a volunteer a new placement at that job. Keep the starting dates in mind for each volunteer, station, job and placement.
