New Website and x2VOL
August 27, 2012
Update your “About You” section with your correct address, home phone number, and mobile phone number.
Select what you enjoy in community service in the “Interests” section so that we can offer you projects suited to you.
Type “St. Mark’s” and select it from the dropdown when it appears.
Your student ID is your class year, last name, first initial with no spaces and the first letter of each capitalized. Example: 16WelchP.
You MUST check this box.
Check this box IF you want to add your parent’s email address so they are notified when you sign up for an event.
Your email address is your St. Mark’s email address.
Choose your password
Select that you understand the policies and are 13 or older.
THEN press the Save button.
JOIN your graduating class group
Then click FINISH
Click on the class you joined
Then check the GOALS that apply to you. (Should be First Trimester Hours, and Summer Hours if you completed any.) Then click Finish.
You must join the group of the student group you are a part of in addition to joining your class group. These are found directly below the class groups on the Groups and Goals page. Community service board members should have a supplemental goal of 15 additional hours per trimester (in addition to their 5 hour per trimester class goal).
ONLY join if you are a member of one of these student groups.
Now we’ll talk about using the system.
To see your hours, click on “My Activity Hours”. This includes all of your hours from your St. Mark’s career.
1. Add Hours to Recurring Activities (For projects that you do repeatedly).
2. ADD AN ACTIVITY OF YOUR OWN(Equivalent to the old reporting forms).
3. Add hours for an activity that you signed up for through x2VOL (school-provided projects).
NOTE: For anyone who does non-signup school activities like Genesis, you must now enter the hours for them as an activity of your own independently.
Fill out the form in detail, like you would on the old hours reporting forms. Fill out the name of the activity, a description, contact information for a supervisor at the project, the date the project was completed, and the number of hours.
You can make this a Recurring Activity. Once you have recurring activities, you can easily add a new “instance” when you went by checking “Add From My Recurring Activities.”
Choose a goal to apply your hours to a trimester goal (remember, 5 hours per trimester), or to your summer hours.
You MUST write a reflection for all personal activities. Reflect on what you did and why.
All hours entered will be audited, and any violations will be handled like cheating is under the Lion Tracks.
Go to the School Center to find opportunities and sign up for them (This is the equivalent of the sign up sheets on the old Community Service Bulletin Board).
But the school will not approve these items. For example, if you served at a house of worship or somewhere where you received credit for your time externally, you can enter the hours into x2vol, but they will not count toward your goals (First Trimester requirements, etc.).
Back on the My Activity Hours page, if you click an activity you can edit it or remove it from your log. You can also see whether the school has approved your hours from here.
Print your service log by clicking here.
After you register and login on the web site – try the mobile app to log your hours!
You are allowed to download the app to your iPhone or Android phone during this presentation – go ahead and pull out your phone to do it.
Note: You must login at least once on the web site before you can use the free x2VOL mobile app. The app is for logging hours only.
