How do I use Forms on Vome?

Although you can use forms for surveys or any other data collection purpose from volunteers, they are often used for recruitment.

How do people arrive to the form to fill it out and submit their response?

There would be 3 ways for volunteers to arrive to this form and submit a response:
1. You can generate a shareable URL for volunteers to arrive directly on the form. 

2. You can make the form public. By doing so, a volunteer would be able to access the form your Vome page. Once you have a single public form, there would be a GET INVOLVED button added to your page, which would show page visitors the list of forms that are made public. Since you can set multiple forms to public visibility, you can build a form for various purposesindividual interest,  group interest, specific events,  different languages, etc.!

3. When you create your various opportunities, you will be able to configure the option recruitment process setting to General application, and then choose any form(s) from your Forms module. If someone is browsing featured opportunities, then clicks on one that has the General application recruitment process, and then clicks on the Register button, it would bring them to the form (or selection of forms) you linked this opportunity. In other words, they are not directly registering for the opportunity, as they are being redirected to a general application form. You can think of this as a similar process to someone getting to a generals inquiry Google Form from your website! 

Am I getting notified about new responses that come in?

When building a form, you will select the assigned coordinator for the form. This individual will receive email and app notifications when a user submits a new response.

How many times can a user submit a response to the same form?

 A user can submit the form an unlimited number of times.
Please note that if you do not want this to be the case for new recruits, we would recommend using the Opportunity-level recruitment feature for your opportunities. Read here more information: How do I organize volunteer recruitment on Vome?
