Step 3: Select the toggle on the top right of the “Track volunteer hours” box to turn on volunteer hour tracking

Step 4: Complete the information in the “Track volunteer hours” box to match your company volunteer program.

Step 5: Choose the approval process that matches your company volunteer program

Step 6 (Optional): If you will require your employees to submit documentation proof from a volunteer event they attend, you will want to select the option under “Require documentation” 

Note: if your company volunteer program requires employees to submit documentation from a volunteer event, you will need to select “Require approvals on volunteer matching only” OR “Require admin approval for all volunteer submissions” so the “Require documentation” section shows up
