Add New General Interest

About this feature: Volunteers will be able to read the General Interest descriptions when they are considering applying to your organization, so it’s a good idea to word them like job advertisements. 

  1. Go to: Configuration, then click on “General Interests” found in the sidebar under Recruitment. 
  1. Click the [+] button in the “General Interests” header bar or click the [+ New General Interest] button at the bottom of the page. 
  1. Enter a General Interest name (maximum 100 characters) 
  1. Select whether or not the General Interest is Active (i.e. will be visible to volunteers and seen on the organization’s public search page) 
  1. Select the applicable Application Form.  If prospective applicants are looking at your list of active General Interests via a signup link, they can be directed to fill in a specific application form (1, 2 or 3).  If you are just getting started, you may want to leave this as Default for now. 
  1. Select your Visibility options: 
    • MyImpactPage: The volunteer’s profile page, enabling volunteers to check what their interests are after they have filled in the application form 
    • Public Page: visible to potential applicants to give them an idea of the type of opportunities you offer 
    • Application Forms: The application forms on which this General Interest will appear. 
  1. Optional: Enter a Description (visible to volunteers) 
  1. Optional: Select the Schedule Classifications associated with the General Interest (Additional Classifications may be available on Enterprise accounts)
