Being ‘on duty’ is a huge help
Please make sure you are ‘on duty’ on the GoodSAM App. Going on duty means you will be notified of tasks you may be able to support with.
To accept tasks and put yourself on duty, go to the ‘Me’ tab on the GoodSAM App and switch on ‘Report on duty’. You do not need to be available immediately, so please stay on duty if you can.
It is entirely up to you whether you accept or reject the request. If you decide to read more, you can choose to carry out the task. If it is not of interest or if you are not available at the time slot, pass it to another volunteer. Just click the ‘actions’ tab and select ‘pass to another volunteer’.
Don’t worry if you don’t receive a task request immediately. This will vary depending on the demand in your area.
