I am testing the CiviVolunteer extension and was wondering if there is anyway to identify that a contact signed up to volunteer based on their profile? I assigned a few volunteers to an event, but I do not see that they signed up anywhere on their profile. I don't even see the event show up on their event tab. Let me know if I am missing anything or if this is a future enhancement. Thank you!

For now in the contact's profile click on the activities tab and filter out the activity type = volunteer. Status available means the contact has not been assigned to a specific need. Status scheduled means they have been assigned to a specific need.

  • Yes, that's right. There is no volunteer tab on the contact summary at this time. Volunteer activities are not event registrations, but as stated above are recorded as Activities. Apr 14, 2016 at 13:27

Under 'CiviVolunteer' -> 'Manage Volunteers' (or similar). I couldn't confirm as none of CiviVolunteer's menus are working on the demo site. I agree a 'volunteer' tab on the contact screen would be great (I thought there was one? It wouldn't be hard to make - drop an email to [email protected] to find out more).
