  • Type a name in the Displayed Name field, something like Branch Preference.
  • Check the box in the Use? column.
  • Click the Edit List button at the bottom.
  • Add the branch names.
  • Close. Close Volunteer Fields.

To select a branch for a prospective volunteer:

  • Open Volunteers | Profile.
  • Find the Volunteer.
  • Scroll to the Branch Preference field.
  • Click the Edit Volunteer button.
  • Select each choice to mark it with the >> double arrow.
  • OK.
  • On the volunteer’s Profile you will see only the selected choices.
