Recruitment and Application Links for your Website, Social Media and Email

Important: If you are posting a signup link to your website, you should only use the full URL. While URL shorteners are available, they should only be used if you are sending that link directly to someone who is about to fill in your application. 

  1. Go to: Configuration, then click on “Links for Website” found in the sidebar under Recruitment 
  1. Choose the type of link to generate: 
    • Home Page (Activity List): Link to a page showing applicants a list of General Interests and Activities visible to the general public; and a link to the application form
    • Single Category Page: Link to a page showing applicants a list of Activities from a single category that are visible to the general public
      • Select the category from the dropdown list
    • Activity Page: Link to a page showing applicants a single Activity that is visible to the general public
      • Select the Activity from the dropdown list 
    • Application Form: Direct link to your application form 
    • Mobile Application Form: Direct link to your mobile application form 
  2. Select the application form to generate 
  3. Optional: Enter custom Link Text to help differentiate between generated links 
  4. Click the [Generate Link] button to generate a preview, a long URL that you can add to your website (or a short URL that can be sent to someone), and HTML code 

Note: When a volunteer clicks on your signup link, they can create a new profile (“I am new to MyImpactPage.com”) or re-use an existing profile (“I already have a username”) so that they only have to remember one username and password.
