Save Time and Trees with VolunteerLocal’s Online Waiver

VolunteerLocal DisclaimerWe love being able to save time for you and your organization. We also like saving trees. That’s why we have a section for Disclaimers, where you can upload your waiver, ensuring everyone who registers for your event has read and signed your waiver – minus the paperwork.

To set up your waiver, go to Events->Your Events, and select the Disclaimer link next to your event. Copy and paste your waiver into the text box. The checkbox underneath, “Check here to capture a digital signature to accept the disclaimer,” ensures that your volunteers are required to give a digital signature accepting your terms. You can customize the text displayed next to the confirmation checkbox in the section directly underneath.

For our Discover, Grow, & Conquer clients, we give you the option to set up a separate minor waiver for those volunteers under 18. Copy and paste your minor waiver in the portion beneath your adult waiver. You’ll notice that it prompts you to add a “birthdate” field to your registration questions. If you haven’t already done so (under Events->Your Events->Volunteer Information), adding a minor waiver will automatically do so for you. This means that when a volunteer enters a birthdate under 18 years of age, the separate minor waiver will appear on the page to be downloaded and signed by a parental guardian.

We know it’s important for you to keep your volunteers and your organization safe. Cover all your bases and ditch the paperwork with an online waiver.
