Hi.  

I run a couple of hockey teams and need to schedule volunteers to work the scoresheet, scoreboard, and penalty box for games. 

I've been using sign-up genius for this functionality and was really hoping I could do one-stop shopping on the SE platform. 

DIBS seems to have the functionality, but is way too expensive compared to the free option of sign-up genius. 

Does anyone know if this functionality exists within SE? If so, what needs to be done to make it work? 

Thanks in advance for reading this far and the assist in answering my inquiry.

Hey Dave.

If the cost of DIBS is too much to work with, then I think you could setup a simple non monetary registration to handle the sign up.

The problem there is that you wont be able to track or assign credits in SE once those assignments are completed (or not)

I guess if it were me, I would just stick with what is working well for you.

I have ton of experience with DIBS and registration if you wanted to reply to try to get a solution going that way.

DIBS really is a great module and I think you would maybe see some cost saving benefits right out of the box, but I understand the club budget angle as well.

Dave,

My two cents - You can use a Registration to help you track these, and with admin or write privileges on the registration you can write to admin only fields to record completion of the volunteer task along with the hours.

I think the challenge with a registration is setting up the choices that the users make in the registration (which event, and which time slot) because the rules for questions are limited to look-ups of previous question values. This means you could not ensure you have doubled up volunteers in their volunteer roles/slots.

If I were to use registrations, my solution would be:

1) Setup a registration with users picking 3 or more volunteer slots across different dates and times.

2) Use a 2nd registration, add the actual slots, and then send invites to claim the assigned slot to the user (given the choices from #1).

It may not be worth it because of the effort but... you would at least have reporting from the two registrations and it would not be at an extra cost.

Not sure you'd make this choice, but at least you can see how it might bet done.
