4. Click Update Opportunity when you're finished to save your changes! 



✏️ Quick tip: If your Opportunity has already received volunteer responses, we highly recommend that you check the box beside Notify respondents of this update? before you click Update Opportunity. 

  • When you check this box, it triggers a notification that tells users there are changes to the Opportunity they responded to. 

What if I need to change the duration type? 

You can change the duration type for Opportunities created with Flexible, Happens On, and Multi-Date duration types. 

  • If you want to change the duration type for Opportunities that were originally created with Custom or Recurring Shifts as their duration types, then you must either Clone that Opportunity or Create a New Opportunity.

1. Go to Volunteerism > Opportunities

2. Select the Opportunity Title you want to clone. 

3. Scroll down to the bottom of the Update Opportunity page until you see the Clone Opportunity button beside the red Deactivate Opportunity button. 4. Click Clone Opportunity

5. A warning pops up to ask if you want to clone the Opportunity. Click Yes to confirm or No to cancel. 6. Now you can change the duration type and update that Opportunity however you need to!
