Classification Codes, Working with Volunteer Group Categories

Return To The Knowledge Base

Volunteer Groups can be classified using volunteer group categories. Volunteer group categories are considered a classification code. Argenta comes loaded with common volunteer group categories to help you get started, but you can change them at any time. You can add or delete any volunteer group category by selecting  Classification Codes from the Argenta dashboard on the left hand side of the screen.

 

 
 
 

This will open the complete list of all customizable classifications codes within Argenta.  From here select "Volunteer Group Categories."

 
 
 
 

This will open the Volunteer Group Category complete listing for your organization.  From here select "Add New."

 
 
 
 

This will open the screen, Add A New Volunteer Group Category, which allows you to add your new Category.

 
 
 
 
 

Choose a name for the new category and then click "Add This Classification Code."  This will add your new category and return you to your complete Volunteer Group Category listing.

 

View The Total Number Of Records
Above every list is a record number that displays the total of all items currently displayed in the list. This is a quick and easy way to count list items.

Search The List
All classification code lists can be searched by the code’s title. Enter the title of the code you are looking for into the search field to search the list.

Export The List To Excel
Argenta contains many reports, charts, graphs, and statements, but it may be necessary to manipulate your own data. You can work with your data anyway you want by exporting it to Excel. Every List in Argenta had an “Export To Excel” button above the list. Clicking the button exports the data currently displayed in the list to Microsoft Excel. If you have filtered the data by specific criteria, only the result set will be exported.

To Remove A Volunteer Group Category
In the volunteer group category list, click the corresponding “Delete” button to remove the volunteer group category from Argenta. Group categories that are already in use cannot be deleted. You will receive an alert indicating that you cannot delete the volunteer group category because it has been used to classify a Volunteer Group. If you still want to delete it, you can find the Volunteer Groups associated with it by filtering the Volunteer Group list, reclassifying all associated Volunteer Groups, then trying again to delete it.
