This is the page people use to signup as a volunteer for your campaign. You can use this page to gather information about volunteers and determine the roles they're interested in.

1. In the dashboard, click Website > New Page to create a new page. You can type anything under Name and Slug, but we prefer to use "Volunteer" to indicate what the page is for. Make sure the page type is Volunteer Signup.

2. It's important to upload a hero image and text. Make sure it's an attractive, high resolution (1440 x 800 pixels or higher) image of an individual or group volunteering for your campaign.

Find your page in the dashboard by locating the Name or Slug you gave it. Click on it, then click Files.

Upload your image to Files from your computer. The filename MUST include the abbreviation "bg" in it (stands for background).

Add a hero tag to the page. This makes it so the theme registers that you want to display a hero image.

Note: We recommend cropping a separate version (400 x 300 pixels) to accommodate mobile devices. The filename MUST contain the word "mobile" for the theme to display it.

3. Under Volunteer settings, you can add text by clicking Intro. You can also use the other tabs to give specific tags to people who volunteer, set up roles for them to checkmark, and edit text for the autoresponse email that automatically sends to people who submit the form.

For more info on what these settings do and how to configure them, read NationBuilder's documentation on Volunteer pages or take this course.
