I had two ideas regarding reports lately:
1. A custom event form for reporting meetings
Tracking which meetings in the org have Reps attendance is a useful metric. It can help us see which functional areas have volunteer presence, and which could be improved. Also attending meetings, and even running meetings are important leadership roles for Reps. Right now attending a meeting is handled as a regular activity, not an event, so it is not possible to see how many Reps attended a particular meeting.
The problem with doing this in the existing event form is all the irrelevant mandatory fields. It would also be great if when you put in the time and date of the meeting the portal could check for other meetings at that time to try to avoid duplicates.
2. Goals/metrics focused reports
It would be great if the portal could hep me track my progress on my goals as a Rep. Also setting a goal and reporting on progress towards that goal is much more impactful than randomly reporting activities. This is basically the same idea I’ve mentioned earlier about wanting to be able to track a new contributor from start to finish.
Reps should set personal goals quarterly, with good metrics and an easy way to say if the goal is done. Then the portal can be more useful as a tool to help me work towards my goals.
