Create a No Session Opportunity (long-term activity)

This feature is only available to the ProBono module. Before you can complete the following steps you will need to have set up the event already.

We understand that every pro bono or skilled volunteering program is unique and the way you present and engage your employees is important.

From time to time you may have a long term opportunity with no set session(s) or dates and times, where the current session set up in this module may not suit your opportunity eg Board of Director role, 6 month secondment etc.

If this is the case, you can opt to display your opportunity dates and times as shown below.
