Tracking volunteer hours

Is there a way to track volunteer hours in ROCK?  We apply for grants through our organization and some of them require us to disclose how many hours our volunteers have logged YTD.  Right now we use Golden Volunteer to do that because we didn't think it could be done in ROCK.  We'd love to cancel Golden if it can be done here.

    Hi Shannon. There are possibly a variety of ways to "track volunteer hours" in Rock, but it seems there is close alignment to volunteering in a 'group'.  If true, Rock's Group Scheduling features could allow you to schedule those volunteers and then using the Schedule Analytics (or other custom reporting ideas) you could turn the data into "hours served" per month/YTD, etc.  Then you would probably just need to multiply the number of times attended by the schedule/service time's Duration to calculate the number of hours volunteered.    (Depending on the structure of your schedules, this may or may not be a feasible thing.)
