The events functionality is an excellent place for your organisation to invite and keep you informed on all the great activities they organise to promote volunteering, e.g. volunteering training, meetings, conference etc.

On the event listing page, you will see all upcoming events that you are directly invited to, or are open to your team/role(s).


Click on any event to see further details.




Clicking "Decline" will decline your attendance for the entire event.

If you look at the event location(s), you may see multiple locations or timeslots available. By clicking on each timeslot you will see further information such as who else is attending and a link to a map location.


Once you have decided to attend a session, your accepted sessions and details will appear above the locations for easy access on the day. You also cancel a session at any time from here.


When you are invited to an event, an entry will be added to your calendar, once you are attending a session this will turn green. Where appropriate an activity will automatically be created for you after the event.

If the event requires approval you will be placed on a waiting list for sessions you wish to attend. The event organiser can then communicate, approve or decline where necessary.   


If you need to contact the event organiser, you will be able to send them an Assemble message directly by clicking the button found in the event details.
