Questions tagged [civivolunteer]

Questions about installing and using CiviCRM's volunteer management extension. Before posting a question, be sure you also have the Angular Profiles extension installed -- CiviVolunteer won't work without it. Also set CiviVolunteer permissions after installing. CiviCRM users with version 4.7.21 and higher should install the latest version of CiviVolunteer. Users of CiviCRM up to and including 4.7.20 should not upgrade past CiviVolunteer 4.6-2.2.1.
