Self-service 2: Joint Administration

This guide will explain how to set up a jointly-administrated organisation.

The most common arrangement for Volunteer Centres and self-serving organisations is to have joint administration.

This means that both the Volunteer Centre and the organisation will be able to edit the organisation page; add, edit and delete opportunities; and view applications.

To set this up, follow the steps below.

1) Add the new administrator

Follow this guide to set up a new administrator for the organisation profile.

You should give the new administrator full permissions, apart from 'Delete Administrators' if you don't want to.

2) Transfer any existing opportunities

If you have any opportunities which are Offered By you, the Volunteer Centre, you need to Edit these.

Go to My Opportunities and find the opportunities Offered By you, Offered For this organisation. Click Edit, and change the Offered By to be the organisation, keeping Offered For as the organisation too. Save.

Repeat for all the relevant opportunities.

This is all you need to do to enable this self-service. You should make clear with the organisation who holds responsibility for what - i.e. who is in charge of adding new opportunities? who is in charge of responding to applications? etc.

But in terms of Do-it actions, you are now jointly administrating the organisation's profile and opportunities with the organisation.
