What are Organization Qualifications?

Use Qualifications at the Organization level to tag Staff with a certain skill-set or attribute.

InitLive is now Bloomerang Volunteer—a new name, a new look, and a new integration. Bloomerang Volunteer works just like InitLive. You can do everything you always do, and in the same way.

Organization Qualifications, like Opportunity Qualifications, act as tags that can help identify if a Staff member meets a particular requirement. Organization Qualifications, however, can only be managed from the Organization level, by Organization Managers. To create a new Qualification at the Organization level, navigate to the 'Qualifications' tab in your Organization and then click on the 'Create new Qualification' button.


Along with filling out some basic information, you will have to set the 'Qualification Setting' and 'Opportunity Setting'. The 'Qualification Setting' determines the visibility of the Qualification. Public means anyone, including Staff, will be able to see and select the Qualification during the registration process. Private means it must be appointed by an Organization Manager but it will still be visible to qualified Staff. Hidden means the Qualification will never be visible to Staff, even when appointed to them. The Opportunity Settings for your Organization Qualifications will allow you to determine whether or not the Qualification should be accessible at the Opportunity level, at which point they can be assigned to Opportunity Staff. Without allowing Opportunity Managers to view the Qualification, it can never be used within an Opportunity and will only be visible to Organization Managers.
