Introducing Opportunity Tagging

In this release, we are excited to introduce our first implementation of tagging with Opportunity Tagging.  Users who enter new opportunities into NobleHour or who edit existing opportunities will be able to select from existing tags or apply new tags to those opportunities.  Tags will help:

  • Organizations robustly describe their volunteer opportunities
  • Visitors find and search for those opportunities
  • Highlight social focus areas and desired volunteer skills
  • Enhance Impact reporting and volunteer effort understanding


  • Add opportunity Skills, Focus Areas, and Type tags to each opportunity to describe the skills you desire in this opportunity’s volunteers, the social impact focus area(s) it addresses, and any special type information (e.g., training, fundraising, race, etc.).
  • Visitors searching through Explore with these terms will quickly be directed to the opportunity. When we launch user Account tags, opportunities will be suggested to members with matching skills or interests.
  • Increase your understanding of Opportunity impact by examining what focus areas or skills describe the most opportunities you host or receive the most hours by volunteers. 

To access:

  • Create or edit an opportunity.
  • As you add the opportunity name and host information, enter one or more opportunity type tags to better describe the opportunity using your organization’s terms.
  • Tip:  Click on Suggestions for tag ideas.  You can always add your own.
  • On Step 5 - Details, enter the social focus area(s) the opportunity addresses and any desired volunteer skillsets.
  • Save as usual!

Check back in 2-3 weeks for new Opportunity Tag Reports!
