There is no Registration Closed Date option for ongoing, custom or recurring shifts. My agency has a recurring shift, but I need to know at least a week in advance if someone has signed up so that I can find another volunteer if the need is unfilled. I cannot effectively communicate with new volunteers if they sign up on the day of a shift. Communicating with volunteers prior to when they are supposed to volunteer is essential in managing volunteers effectively and ensuring they have the best volunteer experience possible, while also making the best use of my time and my organization's resources.
As it is now, in order to create a need with a Registration Closed Date I will have to create multiple Happens On Needs for the same task that happens at the same time on the same day each week.
If you think this feature would be helpful for your agency, please 'like' this post so that it gets upvoted for the development team to actually consider.
I am experiencing the same issue. It is not efficient not to be able to effectively communicate with a volunteer that registers the night before the event and can create logistical chaos the day of, no one has time to give them duty details and orientation during the event. The option to establish a cut-off date for recurring shifts would solve this issue.
Thanks for listening:)
