The Reporter allows you to customize all the geographic requirements for outside the US. You can change City, ST, Zip, as well as Social Security No., to the labels suitable for your country.

The Ethnicity and Racial Group field labels must remain, but some Canadians delete the values and ignore those fields.

The Reporter enables many customizable code fields in Volunteers, Stations and Jobs to suit your organizations unique needs. In the Volunteers section, 15 customizable drop-down fields and combination of 15 total text, date and number fields provide the ability to record unique data you would like to track. The Comments field will hold whatever prose you care to save.
