Job Slot Selection

When you choose the Insert user field button, there are the options VSys Live job assignment selection (VSys Live) and Job Slot Selection (VSys Web) These types of field represent openings for jobs, and allows your volunteers to select jobs via the web, but only openings which still require volunteers. These fields can be complex but also quite powerful.

When placed on a VSys Web or VSys Live application form, these fields will only allow volunteers to select openings which match the jobs, locations, times and dates defined in the Job slot selection fields.
