Waivers - more fields to fill in

I would really like to transfer some of my forms to digital waivers in qualifications but I cant because of the limited fields to add. I need options for printed name and contact on the forms specifically for my records. (For example if I want to specify a parent's contact info on a waiver on a minors account) 


I would also love if there was an option for Waivers to have a setting for staff (a program manager or site manager) to check off a field.

I'd love to add to this conversation if that's ok! I recently tried to upload a waiver that one of the cities we have volunteer events in requires for every single event. The volunteers have to provide a lot of info that's already in their profile like Name, Address, Phone Number, Emergency Contact, and I thought it would be so handy if there were fields we could add to the waiver forms like the signature block, but change the label so I could have them fill out the various fields of this waiver within the platform. I currently just have a blank one that they download and fill out, scan, and re-upload which works but is harder for some of the folks who don't have smartphones or scanners at home, or can't figure out how to edit the pdf. 


Because this is an external form that this city provides, I can't work around it by asking for the information in different ways or through different channels on the site, as much as I wish I could. 


Thanks! 


Thanks!

Yes, this would be excellent. One thing that we are grappling with is under-legal-age volunteers where the parent or guardian needs to sign. So the volunteers name would be the child but the parent would also need to add their name and signature. This brings in then the complexity of auditing, how would you know that it was the parent that signed? Signature routing?

Inserting custom fields into waivers would be incredibly useful for my site as well. I would love to have all of my clearances and waivers filled out electronically, but due to site limitations on what fields can be used in waivers, most of my forms must be printed and uploaded to the site. This not only is extra work for the volunteer and a barrier for volunteers without printers, but also is not environmentally friendly. 


I cannot capture this information on other parts of the sites as the forms are from a county agency and must be submitted exactly as is for the them to run the clearances. 


Thanks!

Hi Emma,


Thanks for adding your thoughts here! I will add your request for additional waiver field options to our current notes we have on this topic.


Typically, we recommend using different areas on your site to collect additional information on a user within their profile, such as utilizing custom user registration questions to collect something like their parental contact information, for example. If you need extra help understanding where best to collect this data, feel free to reach out to support@galaxydigital.com!


Could you tell me more about the check-off field option request piece you mentioned? I want to make sure I understand that request a bit more for the note I put together for the team to review.


Thanks,

Hi everyone,


Thanks so much for adding all of your thoughts here!


Emma, I have created a new note card in regards to your request for an admin or staff-only area on waivers (with check-off options, etc.) and your additional feedback for the team.


Grace and Samantha, I have added both of your thoughts to our existing notes for the additional fields in waivers request. I truly appreciate you outlining the reason why this would aid your workflow - those details really help us better understand why folks may need this update.


I hope you all have a great holiday weekend!


Best,

Hi everyone,


Thanks to you both for adding thoughts to this thread!


Mary -- For basic profile items like Address and Phone Number, we recommend collecting this information in your user registration form (Settings > User Registration). Waivers only have fields available for signature, initial, and date, and these options and labels cannot be changed which could be confusing to your users. If you need more assistance on your registration form, please reach out to support in an email for help!


Mark -- This is a great question for us at support! I know it has been a couple weeks since this was originally posted. If you are still in need of help in regards to Adult/Minor waiver set up, please start a new ticket with us at support@galaxydigital.com. Additionally, this article gives more insight on how it looks for a minor then parent/guardian signs the waiver.


Best,

Hey Nancy,


I hope you're having an awesome day!


I really appreciate the time you've taken to explain how and why this is so important to your Organization. I'll go ahead and add your comments to strengthen this existing request for our Enhancement Team's consideration.


Again, thank you so much and have an amazing rest of your day,


KJ

If I use a signature field for addresses and phone numbers and the like, can volunteers just fill in that information there?

Hi Shonie, 


When I was talking about a "check-off" section I was thinking about something similar to how some forms have a "staff only" section where after the form is turned in. These sections are for staff to mark approval (which I know is a waiver option,) but also add information that a client would not know on their own or needs to be confirmed such as "staff visual confirmation of vaccine" or "days/areas approved for" 


Essentially what I am getting at is I want to have some direct records of staff approvals not just inferred ones from the waver being approved or in a separate waiver in order to fully move my application process to GD. (Right now I am sort of stuck in a half and half area with online and paper) 

Hey Volunteers!


I hope you're having an awesome day! I appreciate you sharing your support for this suggestion.


I'll add this to the current card we have for this potential enhancement, but I did want to suggest adjusting the waiver to only need initials, signatures, and/or dates. Other information for your volunteers can be collected during User Registration by going to Settings > User Registration.


Again, thank you so much for sharing and I'll be sure to share this with our enhancement team!


With gratitude,


KJ

Hi KJ,

Adding my two cents to the conversation.  You and I have been chatting about this via email and wanted to share my thoughts with the others. 

 

Agree that there needs to be a text field option for the waiver or consent document.  Understand there can't be endless, but a few that could be added would be great.  


We would like the name of the minor child on our consent form, which we can do with the fields you suggested above, but it puts it in a cursive font and treats it like a signature. We cannot have a minor child officially signing anything concerning liability or consent according to our state law.  The text field(s) completed by a minor should allow the document to continue the waiver process of being forwarded to a parent or legal guardian for their signature.  I even tried to do a workaround of using the initials field to capture the name of a minor child, but again, it is a cursive font and then when the minor child tries to submit for it to be routed to a parent or legal guardian, it has two pop-ups that ask them if they consent to e-signing the form.  Our legal team was not pleased by that language and is preventing me from using your system to collect minor child consent forms this way.  Now I'm forced to use the adult only waiver qualification and minor children cannot respond to our opportunities. This is an audience we are trying to reach and now we have this barrier. We will make it work in the meantime, but a few minor changes could be helpful in making the system work better for all.


Thanks!

Hello, 


I wanted to say that all of points mentioned above would be beneficial to this update. Our waivers state what information we are looking for in the blank text area, so having a blank field option would be helpful.
