Getting started with PAAM App is quick and easy! You can add a new event with just the basic details, turn on applications, and let your volunteers know they can apply!
PAAM App can help you schedule your volunteers by grouping your different teams, for example you can setup a main group for your volunteer stewards, then sub-groups for shifts.
You can manage your volunteers at the event using PAAM App too! PAAM App helps you to check-in your volunteers, allocate their equipment, and keep track of volunteer attendance.
PAAM App's export features help you when you need to collate information about your volunteers, for example when ordering uniform, running PNC and CRB checks.
PAAM App was developed by a team with over 30 years' experience in volunteer recruitment, scheduling, and management, designed from the ground up to consolidate the many tasks required and reduce the time involved with managing and administering volunteers.
Getting started with PAAM App is quick and easy, a new event can be added to the volunteer app by just adding the basics such as how many volunteers you require, the event dates and times, location, roles, and any preliminary notes and information.
Once your event is setup in PAAM App you can turn on applications and let your volunteers know using PAAM App’s built-in and customisable email and SMS messaging.
When it comes to administering your volunteer applications, PAAM App makes this a simple and intuitive process. Your volunteer statistics are presented visually, allowing you to quickly see how many applications you’ve received and how many volunteers are waiting to be accepted. It’s then easy to select an event, review volunteer profiles, and accept applicants.
As your event moves closer you can add more information for your volunteers, this can be just simple notes, or more comprehensive documents for volunteers to download such as info packs, health and safety guidance, shift planners, and meeting schedules.
You can organise your volunteers in PAAM App using the volunteer app’s scheduling systems. For example, to organise your event teams you can add groups and sub-groups to a PAAM App event. Once you’ve created your event group, for instance event stewards, you can then add sub-groups for the morning shift, the late shift, and the night shift. PAAM App groups and sub-groups can be used to let volunteers know which team and shift they are in, distribute team specific information, check-in and check-out volunteers, and track volunteer attendance throughout an event.
When you need to export volunteer data before, during, and after an event, PAAM App makes this a quick and easy process. The web app includes standard exports for volunteer groups, shift assignment and attendance, uniform sizes, PNC and CRB checks.
