    Hi Everyone!

    I am researching volunteer apps for onboarding, volunteer shift sign up, and hour tracking. We are a small organization with about 100 "active" volunteers. I would love to know what you all are using and if you've found it helpful. The two I am currently leaning toward are Better Impact and Volgistics, so any insight on either of these would be greatly appreciated. If you are using another app, below are my questions:

    • What app do you use?
    • What do you like about it?
    • What do you wish was better?
    • How much per month is it?

    Hi there,

    We use a program called Donor Perfect. It's great, because we can use it for our donors and volunteers (which in many cases or one in the same). I track hours, location of volunteers (since we operate in multiple counties, towns and jurisdictions), age, what kind of volunteer, etc. It has worked really well for us. We've been using this database program for over a decade.
