Activity Form

We’re here
to champion
volunteering.

Activity Form

The Activity Form is to log VT-hosted and non-VT hosted events and activities, such as sitting on a Food Security Committee or attending a TASCOSS forum. This is particularly relevant to the Peak Body, HACC/CHSP and VMA funding contracts. Where multiple VT staff have attended, please ensure only one form is entered.

For events hosted by VT with multiple organisations in attendance, please enter all attendees. This will ensure the activity is logged against each organisation’s account in the CRM.

Other Forms

Rules

The most important things to remember whenever inputting data into the CRM is always consider its purpose, and always follow the naming conventions.

Critically, each interaction or activity is required to be linked to one or more funding instruments. If this is not accurate the VT reporting to funding bodies and stakeholders will be incomplete and/or incorrect.
