  1. Service Networking Solution for America!!!

    America NEEDS a full service Service Networking Solution (a free tool to link, engage, and track volunteerism throughout America) that would provide:

    • A tool that will allow registered users to volunteer, track their service over their lifetime, and also share and catalogue those experiences through blogs, photos, music, video, and more.

    • A tool that will allow small organizations (think volunteer fire department, scout group, etc) to host their own web site that provides volunteer matching and other information in a comprehensive manner.

    • A tool that will support the Volunteer Generation Fund element of the Kennedy Act, allowing…

      We feel that we are on track, given the nature of an all-volunteer group of firms that have been working for almost a year at providing the deepest possible set of volunteer opportunities in the US. That having been said, if you would like break up your feature requests into individual items or perhaps speak with us directly, please let me know. The former would allow us to prioritize each request, which is how we are approaching the software development process.

      Thank you for your detailed feedback.

          • Volunteer abroad opportunities should be listed last in local searches

            When I search for opportunities in my neighborhood, many of the first items that come up are volunteer abroad opportunities; clearly not what I was looking for. Maybe this is happening because the sponsoring organization is in my town (I don't know if it is or isn't), but the listing should be based on where the volunteer work will be performed, not on the org headquarters. If organizations can't submit their opportunities with the correct info, they should be dropped.

                • Remove Meetup.com listings from system

                  It seems like most of the Meetup.com listings at AFG have nothing to do with volunteering and service. Look at the ones on this result page:
                  http://www.allforgood.org/search#num=10&start=1&vol_loc=85715&timeperiod=everything&cache=1

                    Thank you for this. Meetup is one of our valued partners, and we are continually working with them to get better listings from them. That having been said, occasionally off-topics listings get through.
                    Thank you for this.

                      Can you give us more details or perhaps a URL where you are seeing these issues?

                    • 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.

                      • Simplify the code for links

                        I have clicked on several links to go to events and none of them are coming up. I noticed the code takes the link back through the allforgood website. Why not hyperlink directly to the site requested? Simpler and quicker.

                        • Delete events that have passed

                          The listing is cluttered with old events, making it harder to find future events. Delete old events.

                          • 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

                                  Can you tell us specifically what occurs when you try to go back and what mechanism you are trying to use?

                                  Thanks again for your feedback, and we are sorry that you are having this issue.

                                • 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.

                                      • please include name of organization in the API results

                                        a key piece of user feedback (we are on the Android) is that folks would like to see the name of the organization hosting the event somewhere. THanks!
