The volunteer list can be filtered for a few different reasons.
One is to narrow down the list by criteria to find specific records. Another is
to give you a count of volunteers, based on your selected criteria.
As an example, if you wanted to know how many volunteers you have
obtained from your latest email marketing campaign, you could select "My
Marketing Email Campaign" from the Associated
Campaign drop-down list. Click the "Filter List" button. You will
see the total records label above the
list has changed and gives you a total count of all volunteers who were
obtained as the result of your specific email marketing campaign. The list has
also changed, and displays only volunteers who were obtained as the result of
your specific email marketing campaign.
To get started, select either Constituents (CRM) or Volunteerism > Volunteers - from the main menu on the left hand side.
This will open your list of volunteers. To filter the list, click the "Filter List"
The Filter List panel
will open above the volunteer list.
Choose criteria to filter the list. Use as many of the filters as
you need, you can choose one or many items depending on how you would like to
narrow your results. Volunteers can be filtered by:
- Volunteer Status
- Acting As Team Member
- Constituent Type
- Volunteer Category
- Is Volunteer A Student
- Suspension Status
- Acquisition Source
- Associated Campaign
- Precinct (Select District First)
- Active Date Range
- Inactive Date Range
- Birth Date Range
Click the "Filter List" button and the list will display only the volunteers
that meet the selected criteria.
Filters are persistent, meaning even after viewing and or editing
a record, the filter you are using will still be in place when you come back to
the main list. You can reset the list by clicking the "Cancel Filter"
also save your filters, to use again at a later time. After you filter the list
open the filters menu by clicking the icon in
the filter box. When the filter menu opens choose "Save Filter" This
will bring up the "Add A New Filter" window. Enter a name for the
filter and click the "Add This Filter" button. The window will close,
and your filter will be saved. To load a filter at a later time, open the filters menu again but
this time choose "Load Filter". A list of saved filters will be
displayed. Click the filter you want to load. The filter will be applied and
your list will display according to the filter criteria. To delete a filter, open the filters menu again but this time
choose "Delete Filter". A list of saved filters will be displayed.

will close and the list will be reset back to its original state.
