Skip the planning and create a Field Trip by inviting your Team to join an upcoming community event.
Team owners can enable community event sharing. Depending on their Team settings, Team coordinators and members can create Field Trips by inviting their Team to a community event. Learn more about Team roles →
What to expect
With this feature enabled, people on your Team can create Field Trips by inviting your Team to join upcoming community events. You can enable community event sharing for everyone on your Team, or restrict it to Team owners and coordinators.
Once a community event has been shared with your Team, it'll appear on your Team hub and will be included in your Team's volunteering feed and social impact reporting.
To enable this feature, click the settings tab on your Team page, then click features. You can choose to either enable the feature for everyone on your Team, or enable the feature for owners and coordinators only. You can disable this feature or update permissions at any time.
Volunteer as a Team at a community event
To share a community event with your Team:
- On any upcoming community event page, click volunteer as a Team
- Add a message to go in your invitation
- Click create Field Trip
This will send out an email notification to your Team inviting them to register for the event. Your Team will see the event in your Team hub as an upcoming Field Trip to join.
Once you share a community event with your Team, you can create a Team invite link to invite new people to join your Team and volunteer for the event - just like a Field Trip!
If you'd like to adjust the notifications that your Team receives, head to the settings tab on your Team page, then click notifications.
How shared community events work
Creating a Field Trip from a community event will allow your Team to register for the event as a volunteer on your Team (rather than an individual volunteer). Volunteer hours from this event will count towards your Team impact hours and reporting if anyone from your Team registers for your Field Trip.
If someone volunteers as an individual (by choosing register as an individual in the registration dropdown), their volunteer hours won't be added to your Team impact reporting.
