It is important to my organization that volunteers not be able to sign up for overlapping shifts. I would like to prevent volunteers from double booking themselves.

I came here to echo my concerns with volunteers being able to register for overlapping schedules.

We are still in the onboarding phase of using this software and just discovered that it is possible for volunteers to double-book shifts. I would add our vote for a system fix that prohibits this. We have multi-day events with over a 1,000 volunteers and hundreds of shifts and know that a variety of reasons - poor time management, language barriers, cultural differences, a desire for accumulating service hours, etc. - results in a number of volunteers attempting to register for simultaneous shifts. We've always depended on the system to alert us to this issue so we can resolve it well before the event starts.

Hi Paul,

I appreciate you coming to the forum to post your request! With enhancements to the software, these have to be vetted by various departments to ensure it is something that will be of positive impact to all of our clients. This can take some time and client backing, which is why adding this request to our forums is so important for transparency!

That being said, the roadmap has already been established for the rest of the year, so this is not currently on the list. We will absolutely advocate for your request and make sure the brand team understands how important this request is to you when they are setting the roadmap for 2024.

To stay up to date on our most recent enhancements to the software, be sure to check out our enhancement page every now and then!  

Thanks again,

Is this a feature on the roadmap? Our ability to continue to use the software hinges on this feature.
