In my last blog post I promised I'd share more about CiviVolunteer 2.0's new features as they come together. We've finished our first round of development on what I've been calling the volunteer opportunity shopping cart, and I'm excited to share it with you.
While the 1.x branch of CiviVolunteer focused primarily on administrative tools for managing volunteers, with 2.0 we've brought our focus to improving the volunteer experience. We've built a new interface which helps potential volunteers find opportunities in your organization and makes it easy for them to sign up for multiple opportunities in one go. Organizations brokering volunteers to chapters or to partner organizations will find the beneficiary and proximity search functionality particularly interesting.
The screencast above will tell you much more than I could do with words. Please check it out and share your reactions and questions in the comments section below.
