Here's an example of why customized admin levels are critical: We depend on volunteers to post upcoming classes & events. But that also gives them access to financial aspects of classes, which in our situation is a real problem. We've had instances where people went in and canceled their own invoices. We need the customized approach so people can manage the content-creation part but not the finances.
Merged together several closely related by meaning ideas – so we can properly resolve them all together, in different live scenarios
I hope this can get to the top of the list soon. We, too, have a critical need for a tool that will allow volunteers to self-register for specific volunteer opportunities and see who else is registered so they can find their own substitutes when necessary. It also needs to track hours.
We recently decided to use Volgistics for this but it is a whole different learning process and involves a lot of duplicated effort. Plus, being able to view volunteer activity along with membership status, donations and event participation would be a huge help in fundraising -- it's part of the 360-degre view of participants that is so critical to donor development.
List view would be preferable to grid view
We, too, would love a way to link membership to an inventory system of books and tools.
