Point App Volunteer Software - Great for our small org!

Reviewed 2 months ago

Point App has helped our food pantry - a laborious endeavor that relies heavily on volunteers - connect with a wider, more diverse group of volunteers from all over the city!

Pros

Point app is easy to use, free and relatively intuitive. Best customer support I have ever received from a software in my career - Stephanie is responsive and helpful always. We haven't actually embedded the software onto our website yet, but are looking into doing so. It feels great to know that feature already exists in Point app for us, when we're ready! The app is a really great "all in one" volunteer management platform.

Cons

The only feature missing from Point app in my opinion is the ability to publish the same volunteer event for multiple days at once time. Our org's volunteer shifts are the same hours every day, 5 days a week. It feels like there should be a way for me to post said shift for every weekday in a month with the click of a button, some sort of recurring shift, rather than having to create the volunteer event from a template for each day one by one. That is literally my ONLY complaint about the software - everything else is great!

POINT is a life changer for non-profits!

Reviewed 8 months ago

POINT has been a life changer in terms of keeping track of my volunteers' hours. I can do so much with POINT that we have not been able to do as efficiently before.

Pros

-POINT is accessible on both a downloadable app as well as in a browser, making it accessible to volunteers at all different levels of tech knowledge. -POINT has awesome giving features, such as the ability to add an Amazon wishlist. It also encourages volunteers to donate. -POINT keeps track of volunteer hours according to event and/or program. It allows volunteers to manually input hours, as well...

Cons

-I would love to see an addition in the future to allow the capability to see the breakdown of programs for each volunteer when exporting the data. i.e.: Jane Doe worked 7 hours in Crisis and 7 hours in Outreach - we should be able to see that, instead of 14 hours total in the spreadsheet.

On Point!

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

I find the Point software extremely easy to use and manage. As many of our events are the same month to month, I like that I can copy an event and simply change the date and time for the next month. I also like that at a glance, you can easily see the total number of volunteer hours and the dollar impact of those hours. The software has made the task of organizing volunteers extremely efficient and minimizes the amount of time I spend on creating events and seeking volunteers. Our organization also partners with two other non-profits for volunteers, and the feature to co-host an event together has helped us streamline the process of sharing volunteer information.

Cons

There are just a few minor issues I have with the software. When I manage past events, I would prefer to have the dates listed to start with the most recent date (reverse of how it is listed now). In addition, when you back out of a past event, it takes you back to the top of the list. I would rather it just take me back to the section of the list that I was currently in. Also, when you click on event activity, there are times the hours listed do not match the actual hours in the event. I think it has something to do with "dismissing a volunteer", but I am not entirely sure.

POINT Used to Track and Sign Up Ushers for Theatre Company

Reviewed 2 months ago

Overall we have found our experience with POINT very favorable. It eliminates our need to send reminders and is super easy in tracking volunteer hours, which is great when writing grants. We also like that we get notifications when people sign up or drop out.

Pros

This volunteer platform is really great at tracking and signing up volunteers to usher as well as other opportunities around our theatre company.

Cons

Although we find it easy to use, there are some older volunteers that have difficulty and/or reluctance in using technology. Once they are registered and navigate around POINT, they tend to figure it out. The good news is we can still sign up folks on our end if they are really struggling.

Easy to use!

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

I really enjoy using POINT for all of our volunteer management. Being able to assign/reserve spots for volunteers is really important to me as some of my volunteers are older or not technologically savvy, or perhaps they do not have access to internet, computers or a phone. This allows me to be able to record their volunteer hours!

Cons

The set up process to get volunteers on POINT is kind of a pain. I wish it was easier and faster for people to be able to sign up. Requiring a photo, while important, I totally understand, is just really hard for a lot of my volunteers to do. Especially whenever the picture size is "too big" (This was an issue that happend about 3 months ago. May be something that has been resolved now)

The only way to manage volunteer events!

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

POINT makes my volunteer management a breeze! From setting up events, sharing with current volunteers and using built in layouts to promote on our website, POINT has really been a game changer in how we handle volunteers for our events. Any time I have had a question I have been greeted with a prompt and thorough response from the team.

Cons

Nothing stands out as a big miss with their offering. They are continuously offering new features that weren't even on my mind as something I needed!

Connecting us to the community!

Reviewed 2 months ago

The POINT app has revolutionized the way we recruit and communicate with our volunteers. It has dramatically cut down on the back and forth emails and inquires because all the information is now in one place and easily accessible for our volunteers!

Pros

We no longer need multiple spreadsheets or calendars to organize our events and volunteers. It is easy to use for both the administrators and the users. It has helped us streamline our volunteer management while also improving the process for potential volunteers.

Cons

I'm eager to see how it will further connect with Kindful so we can track volunteer data and hours, send group correspondence more easily and track financial contributions from volunteers as well.

Easy Peasy

Reviewed 2 months ago

Overall, POINT has made it significantly easier to identify volunteers for much needed projects our organization has to complete. We would not be able to recruit the volunteers we need otherwise, and everything is super easy to use so it doesn't add any time into my schedule to manage.

Pros

After starting with my organization the POINT system was one of the first tasks I took on. It was super easy to learn and integrate into my tasks. Without instruction, I was able to easily create a school years worth of volunteer events using the duplicate feature. If I need to cancel or make changes to a volunteer event, POINT takes care of all of the headaches and contacts all volunteers with a few clicks. Very simple to use and volunteers seem to really love it.

Cons

I don't love the actual app as an administrator. I've heard it's very friendly as a volunteer.

POINT has been a lifesaver

Reviewed 10 months ago
Pros

POINT has helped me efficiently schedule and manage volunteers for fresh market. The app allows our volunteers to see when we need the most help and then sign up for those shifts easily. Before I used POINT, volunteers would email me to schedule shifts which became an unmanageable practice when the number of volunteers we needed tripled at the start of the pandemic. I am so thankful for POINT and recommend it to any nonprofit volunteer coordinator.

Cons

The POINT app already has all the features I need for my role.

Love POINT!

Reviewed 7 months ago

POINT has been so eager to help our school get started and be successful! They are quick to offer tips and quick to implement any suggestions we might have.

Pros

I love that I can reach out and offer service opps to my students within minutes! Students love the easy access to local service hours.

Cons

I wish I could edit an event after it has started. Sometimes it is nice to add students during or after the event if they forget to sign up.

Excelent app

Reviewed 2 years ago

Not only have we been able to keep all of our volunteer hours in one place, we've also gained a lot of new faces from our events being posted on the app. It's very user friendly and saves a lot of admin time.

Pros

We love that it's free for us to use, it's easy for the volunteers to use, and we've been able to reach more people at the same time as we manage our own events.

Cons

Maybe if admins would be able to manually add volunteer hours for those that do not have access to app or computer.

Strong product. Regular innovation. Great support and service.

Pros

Volunteers like to use it to discover opportunities and to track their effort. The platform opens us to a fresh audience of eager volunteers. Regular innovations. Multiple admins. Notifications about sign-ups. Feature for emailing volunteers.

Cons

We look forward to tapping an expanded audience of volunteers as the application visibility grows, and enters more markets that match our national footprint.

I also have experience with a different volunteer product that the YMCA uses and it is SO MUCH harder to use than Point.

Pros

First, the price question is a moot point because we don't pay for it. It's super easy to use and if I can't figure it out, [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is there to help me out. She also makes suggestions about how to optimize what we are doing.

Cons

Not able to background check volunteers.

POINT is a wonderful tool for any nonprofit to use

Reviewed a year ago

Lots of support, felt very accessible, and I know that many volunteers in the community use POINT. We are thankful to have the option to use POINT for our volunteer program at Alvis.

Pros

I use POINT to recruit for our volunteer projects and events. We've had some amazing volunteers join us through POINT, and the fact that sign-ups can be through a phone app makes this such an innovative, easy-to-use tool. It's so easy to make postings for events/projects on POINT, and the way that POINT formats postings makes lots of sense.

Cons

It would be nice to post recurring or multi-date events on POINT, but that is not a huge drawback (there are ways to get around this issue).

WGC Review

Reviewed 5 months ago

I would like to try and start using it again.

Pros

I liked the layout and ease of finding things to volunteer for

Cons

It's not necessarily due to POINT, but as a staff of two, it's almost impossible to find time to log/keep track of volunteer hours. It just became something else we had to do, and it fell by the wayside. We have a really hard time managing volunteers because we're so understaffed. We need volunteers but don't have time to manage them...it's a constant problem.

A Volunteer Manager's Dream!

Reviewed 6 months ago

We have only been using POINT for a few months, but it has helped tremendously in our volunteer opportunities and coordination!

Pros

My favorite features are the communication capabilities and having all the event information for volunteers in one place. It still includes my contact information in case any issues arise, but all the details are set for them.

Cons

I have had no issues in my short time using POINT and have been satisfied with the available features.
