By default, only site managers can assign an initiative to a need. This default setting is to allow site managers greater control over initiatives and over which needs are associated with each initiative. (For example, if you don't want agencies randomly adding certain volunteer opportunities to your Day of Caring, this setting allows you to control what is added and what isn't.)
If you wish to allow agency managers to select initiatives, however, you can. To change the default setting:
- From your site manager panel, go to Settings > Main Settings.
- Scroll down to the Needs area of the page.
- Switch the Agencies can assign initiatives to needs option to ON.
- Click Update Settings.
Once this setting has been turned on, agency managers will have an option in their need-posting form to associate the need with an initiative via an Initiative dropdown.
