Message to Spark the Change Colorado Members, 

Due to COVID-19, you may be experiencing a lot of cancellations and/or calls asking where folks can help.  We can help you in both areas.  You can cancel your current opportunities for the time being if you don't want/need volunteers showing up right now.  

  • For Date and Time Specific opportunities, see the attached screen shot.  You'll log in to the Partner Portal, click on the volunteer opportunity you want to change, scroll all the way down to Occurrences and you'll see a tiny Cancel button for still-active opportunities. 
  • For Individually Scheduled Opportunities, there is no 'cancel' option, but they can do the following:
    • 1) Edit the occurrence end date, and set it to yesterday's date. That will remove it from the public site.
    • 2) Use the email functionality to send emails to any volunteers with upcoming connections that they've already confirmed - and let them know the opportunity won't be taking place until further notice. Then update those connections to declined, so that they are removed from a volunteers upcoming opportunities. (No action is needed for pending connections, unless they desire to decline those as well).
  • And if you Do Need volunteers, be sure to post updated volunteer opportunities with specifics.  We can also help connect you to the Help Colorado Now website where more volunteers can find you. 

Please let us know if you have questions and we'll be happy to help.
