Welcome to our official feedback forum. Do you have an idea? Do you recognize a good idea when you see one? We want to hear from you!

This feedback forum is powered by www.UserVoice.com. Your use is subject to the UserVoice Terms of Service and Privacy Policy at the bottom of this page.

I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can vote and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can vote on it.

  1. Include a Pro Bono Section

    It would be great to see pro bono listed as one of the categories you could search under. Just as the categories give options for those specifically looking to tutor or work in technology, including pro bono as a section would help separate out opportunities for those hoping to use their professional skills for service versus those doing non-skills-based volunteering.

    • Help orient me to my local volunteer center

      I'm overwhelmed by all the volunteer opportunities in my town - I want someone to talk to about volunteering, where to start, what to try, how you can make a difference. Show me some places to find friendly faces

      • Develop and evangelize a standard feed format (RSS/XML) to promote global syndication

        There are many different xml feeds being used, including several that have been suggested as a standard (Xcal, RDF Calendar, RSS Events) - Allforgood should work towards wider adoption of a standard as this will make syndicating and aggregating volunteer opportunities more ubiquitous. The more data that is syndicated and then aggregated, the more convenient it is for users to find volunteer opportunities.

          • make it easier to find the opportunities posted by registered users

            I have posted several opportunities on other sites (serve.gov, volunteermatch.com) and I can't find them on here when I search by opportunity or agency name

              • Please include phone contact information in the API results

                I have noticed that the API search results include a field for phone contact information, but I have yet to see a result where the phone number is actually populated. However, clicking through to the actual results, very often there is a contact phone number. I suspect that this data is not yet being imported, but for my project it is the most important field.

                • Establish a point system to measure impact

                  Point system would leverage the power of social proof to encourage people to contribute more. Points would be distributed based on any number of actions and contributions, including: the number of volunteers that are recruited, the number of hours served, the amount of donations given or recruited, and amount of impact, etc, and users can even give each other points.

                  • The URL reflects the local organization whose feed you're using

                    The freedomcorps.gov site used to include the logo and url of the local volunteer center whose feed it was using. Now when someone searches (e.g. Create the Good) what shows up is the url of the vendor we use, so people searching don't know that a local organization is hosting that opportunity and has vetted it. We're supplying your feed, so would really like credit in the intitial search list. Thanks

                    • Local Events/Opportunties Calendar

                      I think All for Good should develop a visually easy-to-use and smooth-scrolling (like seadragon-smooth) calendar.

                      Imagine if every city had ONE place where they could find information about everything non-profit coming up. Something you could sort by date, location, topic, event type, organisation etc.

                      What I meant by seadragon-smooth is that you should be able to zoom right out (so you can see 6 months at once... and then right back in (so you can only see one day) but totally smoothly. Obviously for some cities you could have hundreds of "for good" events on one day, which is why…

                        Tim,

                        Thank you for such a thoughtful suggestion. We are using these forums to crowdsource the best ideas, and this is certainly something that we will consider.

                        Thanks again, Ty

                      • The date listed on the search results summary page is incorrect - listed as 1 day earlier than event

                        When I search for my events by school name (the zip code search doesn't list them), they are displayed on the search results page with a summary that shows the incorrect date. e.g. my first event is on July 25, but the search results page lists it as July 24.

                        • Review your posts. Over half the listings have wrong information, so they are unusable.

                          In searching for hunger volunteer opportunities in my zip code the listings had 1) a title, which did not correspond with 2) the address, which did not correspond with 3) the description, which did not correspond with 4) the website. Therefore NONE of the first ten listings had information that I could use to become a volunteer in my neighborhood. You are failing.

                          • How can I post a need for a "mentor" for my child?

                            How can I post a request for a mentor for my child? I have sons who want a college student or college graduate to give them advice on dating, help give them encouragement to do well in school, play ball (baseball, basketball, tennis, etc.) with one or both of them. I can't figure out how to post a request. I applied to Big Brother Big Sister about 6 months ago but they say they don't get any volunteers in the Lake Conroe area. Please offer this connection service via your web site. Obviously, the parent should screen the mentor before…

                              • Category Section

                                I'm wondering if its feasible to "edit" the "category" section of the all for good gadget? I realized that its too limited to six (6) categories (Animals, Education, Health, Nature, Seniors, Technology), how about if we want to add up e.g Youth, Women (just to be specific)? Can u add a tool for this?

                                Thanks,
                                Dindin

                                • Give "advanced" search options

                                  For example, I searched under "MLK day" but got no relevant results, yet MLK.org links to this site via serve.gov It would be nice to have advance options to search for special events, by organization names, to NOT search for something, etc. For example, I got better results when I searched for "King Day of Service", but I also live in Philadelphia which is near "King of Prussia, PA" which kept popping up.

                                    • Zip code search - doesn't search surrounding areas

                                      This may be a Denver-specific thing, but here's my specific bug:
                                      When I search for 'Project Angel Heart' near 80207 (the zip code closest to the actual facility), I get nothing, but when I search the zip code for Denver (80218), which is the next zip code to the West, I find the listing. The data is being pulled from volunteermatch.org, which does list 80218 as the zip code, but allforgood is definitely failing at checking surrounding zip codes in this instance.

                                      The message that I get is:
                                      Your search for “Project Angel Heart” near “80207” did not match any…

                                        Thank you for this. We are rolling out changes to geographical proximity searches this month, which should improve these results. Thank you for the level of specificity here.

                                      • allow one listing to have multiple times, so that it doesn't spam out the front page.

                                        Currently, if a position has more than one date and time, it appears as multiple listings, which is cumbersome and difficult to navigate.

                                        • search by frequency

                                          It would be great to do a search by frequency of volunteer opportunity: one day, a couple hours a week, a couple hours a month, etc. That way I can find opportunities not just based on the time frame of when they will be occurring, but by how often I can commit to volunteer.
