Volunteer Tasks are jobs you can assign to your volunteers. Once a
volunteer has been added in Argenta a volunteer task can be created and
assigned to them. Volunteer tasks can also be displayed on your public task calendar so volunteers can sign up for tasks. This automates the volunteer assignment process.
From the Argenta Main Menu on the left-hand side of the screen, choose
Volunteer Management > Volunteer Task Management.
On the Volunteer Task List page, click the "Add New" button. You will be redirected to the Add A New Volunteer Task page.
You'll only need to enter a few details to add the task. Click the small calendar icon in the Start Date & Time field to enter the task start date. Click the small clock icon to enter the task start time. Do the same for the end date and time. If you're not sure when the task will end, just give an estimate. This field is required because it's used to total the volunteer's task hours. You can always update it once the task is complete.
Next enter a descriptive title for your task. The title can be up to 140 characters long. The title will display in the task list and on your public task calendar.
If you want, you can enter a more detailed description of the task as well, but this is not a required field.
Click the "Add Task & Enter Details" button. This button adds your task then redirects you to the Task Details Page, where you can enter more information about your task.
