Group Improvements

With this release, we are releasing our first phase of updates to community Groups. Phase 1 consists of updates and improvements to the presentation, creation, and management of groups in your community.  Phase 2 will follow up with significant improvements to member administration.  Phase 3 will introduce setting targets and goals for group members. 

In this phase, the list view of groups that members can join and contribute hours to is easier and hopefully more visually pleasing to scan and search.  Each group’s web page now contains more information to attract and encourage member engagement.  And, group administrators who are creating, editing, and managing their groups have more information and direct moderation control.   

Highlights of this round of group improvements include:

Card-based list layout for Community Groups web page

Added information to an individual group web page and form, including:

  • Images - logos and general activity images
  • Featured Opportunities
  • Impact metrics
  • Optional contact information
  • Helpful and required documents posting
  • Supporting web links presentation

Easy editing and management controls, including

  • Deleting groups with no approved hour contributions

Early improvements to member management information, including an improved invite to join, role visibility, and table sorting and filtering (stay tuned for more to come!)

Improved time contribution and opportunity moderation features

Hour Impact Reports Updates

With the release of opportunity tags earlier this month, we are following up with an update to our Hour Impact report that includes the first version of tag reports as well as additional improvements.  Opportunity Tag reports help administrators understand what types of opportunity-related causes and skills your volunteers are submitting hours for.  

Highlights of the Hour Impact Report updates include:

  • Popular Opportunity tag insights
  • Top Performer insights
  • Hours by volunteered date, submission date and economic impact
  • Clarification and focusing of Community Health Averages as Performance Averages

Application

  • Assess the difference between the dates your members volunteer and the dates that they submit their hours (orange vs. blue trending line).
  • Understand who your top performers are by member, group, and organization at a glance under Top Performers.
  • Click on tag bubbles to view percentage of opportunities with that tag and the total hours submitted to opportunities with a specific tag.
  • Much like your members find in their Track view, quickly understand the moderation status of hour sets submitted for contribution and verification.  

To access:

  • Log in to NobleHour.
  • View your reports.  As a member, visit your Member Impact view.  As an opportunity, organization, group, or community administrator, view your entity’s Reports view.

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

Application

  • 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!
