CiviVolunteer has limitations I've found that unfortunately do not make it that user-friendly. My use has been with Wordpress, and there are conflicts with it on the front-end. I would consider it almost dead. The issue queue is long and it doesn't appear to being actively developed.

The movement is towards the Resources Management extension. Here's the documentation. It's more flexible, uses more of CiviCRM's core infrastructure and accounts for non-human resources.

  • thank you for the answer, it is very interesting to better understand Rsource Management. I'm not so sure it replace CiviVolunteer and I'm not sure how to install it :)
