Expressing Interest in opportunities
If an organization wants to review the volunteer before 'approving' them and confirming them as a volunteer - they may choose to designate the project as "Express Interest" rather than "Sign Up". In this scenario an Express Interest Button appears instead of a Sign Up Button
Volunteers reach the success page that informs them they will be contacted by the organization with more information.
If this opportunity is a 'to be scheduled' opportunity - this provides the start of communications by which the volunteer will be scheduled for a specific time to volunteer by the managing organizaton.
Behind the scenes emails are dispatched
An email with information about the opportunity is sent to the volunteer confirming the sign-up. This includes the full directions to the project location and a link to a google map.
It reminds the volunteer that they have only expressed interest and are not yet signed up for the opportunity.
An email is also sent to the Opportunity Coordinator notifying them that they should review and confirm the volunteer.
