Opportunity Clusters: A Guide for Site Managers

Created by Brittany Crow, Modified on Fri, 16 Feb 2024 at 09:57 AM by Brittany Crow

Heads up! This article is intended for Site Managers. Only Site Managers can create and edit Opportunity clusters on their site. 


You can add special tags called Opportunity clusters to your site to make it easier to group, share, and search for Opportunities! Here we cover: 


What are Opportunity clusters? 

Opportunity clusters are a feature that allows you to create and manage special tags that can be applied to Opportunities on your site. Once an Opportunity is tagged with one of these clusters, it can be searched for by that tag with the keyword search. You can also access a special link to share a group of Opportunities that share one of these tags, or "clusters". Advanced Program Managers can also assign clusters to their Opportunities when creating them. 


How to create an Opportunity cluster

To create an Opportunity cluster for your site: 

1. Go to Volunteerism > Opportunities

2. Select the Opportunity Clusters tab. 

3. Type in the keyword or tag you want to use for the cluster and click Add New Cluster

  • Now you, other Site Managers, and Advanced Program Managers can assign those clusters to Opportunities! 


How to delete an Opportunity cluster

1. Go to Volunteerism > Opportunities

2. Select the Opportunity Clusters tab. 

3. Click the (X) under the Options column for the cluster you wish to delete. 

4. A popup appears asking you to confirm your selection—click Yes to confirm or No to cancel. 

  • If you click Yes, then that cluster is removed from the table.
  • If you click No, then that cluster is still active and can be assigned to Opportunities. 


How to share a cluster

When two or more Opportunities share the same cluster or tag, you can access a special link to share those clustered items! 

1. Go to Volunteerism > Opportunities

2. Select the Opportunity Clusters tab. 

3. Click the (#) under the Opportunities column for the clustered items you want to share. 

4. Copy the URL to the page with those clustered items and start sharing! 


How Advanced Program Managers use clusters

Advanced Program Managers can't add or edit Opportunity clusters, but they can assign them to their Opportunities! After you create the Opportunity cluster, Advanced Program Managers can then select from the available tags when creating or editing their Opportunities.
