We track hours and attendance in multiple ways:
1. When volunteers sign up for Opportunities using the Golden Mobile Apps and have location services turned on, we can automatically check them in when they arrive at your location onsite and then check them out when they leave. You can read more about how to enable this feature here.
However, please note this feature may be turned off for Opportunities that do not stay in one location, like trail work, or running a 5k.
2. There is a Check-in Kiosk feature that Organizers can use check people in-and-out onsite. At their discretion, Organizers may use the Check-in Kiosk via a link to allow volunteers to check themselves in-and-out at the site of the volunteer opportunity.
3. If an Organizer was not able to confirm volunteer attendance using the first two methods, they will receive a notification asking them to manually confirm it.
4. If Organizers don't confirm or deny attendance within 3 days after the event, we ask the Volunteer by email (or push notification if they use the Golden Volunteer App) to confirm whether or not they attended. If they confirm, their hours will be automatically added!
