The Volunteer Registration portal is an optional feature used to streamline the planning phase of the count.  As shown in the example below from Spokane, WA, the initial landing page can be tailored to share key details of the count and include links to FAQs, training videos, and other helpful content.  After clicking "Register" volunteers are presented with an intuitive form to provide their contact information as well as key details that help count admins create well balanced teams.   

The Volunteer Registration portal can also integrate directly with the Region and Count Team Management Tools within the Command Center.  Details on how these tools can be used together to ensure your count is properly staffed can be found here

The information provided by registered volunteers  populates a screen within the Command Center that enables Count Administrators to…

  • View information gathered during the Volunteer Registration
  • Designate roles for volunteers (i.e. Captain, Driver)
  • If used in conjunction with regions, assign volunteers to Deployment Areas

Count administrators can also filter the list of volunteers, remove volunteers, and export a list of all volunteers to Excel.
