Frequently Asked Questions

What should be included in a volunteer request form?

A volunteer request form should cover the volunteer’s personal and contact details, interest in your organization, education, how they plan to help, previous experience, etc. You can even go as far as asking for their availability to have a full picture of your potential volunteering crew.

No coding skills are required to modify the prototype as you desire—just drag and drop. Use your choice of text fields, radio buttons, formatted addresses, dropdowns, signatures and many more. Furthermore, request submissions can be emailed or texted automatically to all the individuals who coordinate volunteers.

How do I publish a template?

Now that you have your very own volunteer request form, you can share it online where people can always find it. To include in your website, copy and paste the provided embed link to a page. In addition, you can share the form directly via email or post on social media. You’ll be glad to know that the form features a mobile-responsive design, which means it adjusts its own layout for the best possible experience on desktops, tablets and smartphones.

How can I collect & manage data?

Besides delivering information instantly and securely, your online volunteer request form also comes with a dedicated, searchable database which makes it possible to manage all submissions in one place. You may access individual submissions from your 123FormBuilder account or download them to Excel, CSV, or PDF. What’s more, your form can sync with apps such as Dropbox, Evernote, and Mailchimp so you do not have to migrate this information yourself.

How can I optimize processes?

Whenever there is more work to do than people to do it, a little automation goes a long way. So trade up your paper forms, phone calls, and incomplete emails for an online volunteer request form that takes care of data collection and management. While your web form may collect all requests to a central database, you can use conditional logic to notify specific individuals based on the nature of the request. For example, healthcare requests are sent to one individual while environmental requests are sent to another.
