Best Practices for Departing Staff and Volunteers
When staff or volunteers who have Doubleknot administrator privileges leave your organization, remember to downgrade the permissions for their Doubleknot account.In many nonprofit organizations, staff and volunteers remain affiliated with the organization after their employment or volunteer service ends. For example, a zoo or museum employee may still be a member or register for camps and events after their employment ends. And, in scouting organizations, exiting staff, leaders and volunteers and their families may continue to participate in activities. In cases like these, you may choose to maintain the account (and its associated registrations, reservations, memberships, etc.) and simply remove their administrator privileges in your organization. So, when personnel leave, remember to:
- Remove the account’s administrator permissions,
- Remove the account from administrative groups
- Unsubscribe the account from administrative mailing lists
- Assign another person to handle their Doubleknot administration tasks, and contact us at Doubleknot@doubleknot.com to arrange training to bring the new administrator up to speed.
