Volunteer System

  • Daily Report Recipients – Enter here the email addresses (separated by a comma) of those that would like to receive a report of the day’s orders. The report is emailed out at 4am each day that there are orders placed on.

Manage Administrators

Here is where you Manage Administrator’s. You can add new Administrators, update their access to the system, choosing the things they can and cannot have access to and delete Admins that are no longer involved in using the system.

    • Note that if you’re school is part of a larger multi-school organisation, creating a new Admin will create them on all of the schools. You can limit access to the other schools by switching to the other school and editing the permissions assigned to that admin. If you delete the admin, it will be removed completely from that school only.
