What is a group hour submission? Company Admins Only - Group hour submissions can be made by company admins. This feature allows for large hour submissions when a company volunteer event or larger volunteer events are held. This type of submission can save time for the Admin and company as the Admin will not have to approve multiple hour submissions for a group event. This is also a good way to capture hours for team members that may not have access to the internet or email. It is important to remember that group submissions should be done per plant so the hours can be added to the correct plant. If there were more than one plant/branch/office location that participated, multiple submissions should be entered.
Note: It is important to provide as much information as possible when submitting group hours. Include names, event details and nonprofit descriptions to best record the event. You will also want to alert your team that a group submission will be made and that the overall total volunteer hours will go towards the group total and will not be reflected in personal totals. This will prevent double submissions and reduce approval work for the company Admin.
How do I make a group hour submission? Company Admins Only - Once you login, you can select “Submit Hours.” This is located at the bottom of the home screen on the app and at the top of the desktop homepage.
