Volunteer Recruitment Form Template template

By Type

By Industry

Field validation

Collect all the relevant data from prospective volunteers by adding a field validation to your volunteer application form. With field validation, you can avoid non-response bias and also ensure that the respondent enters the correct information in the form field.

For example, you can add field validation to the email address field so that the respondents don't enter a number instead of an email address. This is a good practice for collecting clean data.

Mobile friendly

Most of your prospective volunteers are likely going to be filling your volunteer recruitment form on a mobile device. Therefore you need to  create a volunteer application form that is mobile-friendly.

With a mobile-friendly volunteer application form, you can increase response rates on your form. Formplus also allows you to add multiple pages to your form. 

The mobile-friendliness of Formplus forms is not only enjoyed by the volunteers alone, but you can also create the volunteer application form from your mobile device.

Response Filters

Make better volunteer recruitment decisions with response filters. This feature lets you save time by sieving through the responses with respect to a particular filter.

For example, you can create a filter to show only applicants who have past volunteer experience. It will help you save time you would have spent reading through many applications.

Approvals and workflow

Collaborate effectively with team members with approvals and workflows that keep you in control all the time. As an administrator, you have the power to approve or disapprove of the forms created by your team members.

Submission deadlines and limitations

Properly section your volunteer recruitment into cohorts by creating a submission deadline for the volunteer application. This will give you more time to access the applications and select some volunteers out of the willing applicants before the project commences. 

You can also add a limitation to the number of volunteers you're willing to recruit. For example, you can set a limit of 20 volunteers for a project. This will help prevent overcrowded projects.

Embed and forms sharing

Embed your volunteer recruitment form on your website landing page to increase visibility. Formplus integration is also available for WordPress sites and is an easily installable plugin. 

You can also share your volunteer recruitment form on your social media pages. With an easy share button on the Formplus web builder with just a click, you can share your phone on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. 

A QR code is also generated for every form created on Formplus.

Google sheets integration

One of the interesting features offered by formplus is Google Sheets integration. This feature allows you to automatically update your spreadsheet with the response of prospective volunteers.

The most interesting part is that you don't have to import or export data because formplus automates this process for you. The spreadsheet is not only updated but it is done in real-time
