Running the Report

  1. Log into your VolunteerMatters system with the proper security access role(s) and then click on Projects. 

  2.  Click on the "Dashboard" button (Project_dashboard_Image_Button.jpg) next to the project you wish to manage.  NOTE: An organizer must be assigned to a project to be able to manage it. 

  3. Click the "Reports" drop-down button (Project_Reports_Image_Button.jpg) and select "Project Staffing". 


  4. This opens the "Project Staffing Levels" page.  Displayed onscreen is a tabular list of all current and upcoming project needs for the next 30 days (default date filter setting) for this specific project. 


    It displays fields listed above.  Depending on your browser width, you may need to toggle the + sign to expand the information for each project need.
  5. The administrator/organizer can then filter the results via:

    • Need Types - Include Shifts, Positions, Tasks, and/or Items in the search.
    • Needs Active On or After Date - Defaults to today's date.
    • Needs Active Before Date - Defaults to one month from today's date.


      They can also use the search box to further filter the onscreen results by matching any of the information on each need.  Including need names, staffing level designation (Under, Fully, Minimally), dates, etc.. 

  6. The administrator/organizer can either export this information or click-through the need name to access the need assignments in question. 

This report is also available on a cross project basis from the main project list and the "Reports" drop-down button (Project_Reports_Image_Button.jpg) and selecting "Project Staffing".


The Cross Project version of the report is the same report but has the "Project Name" and "Site/Branch/Location" fields and includes "Site/Branch/Location" and "Project Tag" filter options.
