How we connected a WordPress form to Three Rings

Three Rings, also known as 3Rings, is a trusted and secure online volunteer management system that has been serving the community for over two decades. The platform is specifically designed to provide a seamless volunteering experience for individuals who are passionate about contributing their time and skills towards causes they care about.

With over 600 organizations currently using the system, Three Rings has established itself as a reliable and efficient solution for managing volunteers. Whether it’s coordinating events, organizing charity drives, or managing fundraising efforts, Three Rings simplifies the process, allowing volunteers to focus on making a positive impact.

Logic Replace, a web design and development company, has a diverse range of customers, and Bow Foodbank is one of them. As their web developer, we have created a website that reflects their mission and values.

Bow Foodbank, a non-profit organization, relies on the Three Rings platform to manage its volunteers effectively. Through the use of this platform, they can efficiently coordinate volunteer schedules and tasks, allowing them to focus on their core mission of providing food assistance to those in need.

The Bow Foodbank website has a form with 20 fields that must be filled in by anyone wanting to become a volunteer. They need to ask a lot of questions for obvious reasons. Once the form is submitted, key members of Bow Foodbank receive an email that lists all the submitted form’s content.

After receiving the information, individuals were required to enter it manually into Three Rings. This process involved carefully reviewing each submission and accurately transcribing the details into the system. It was a time-consuming task that required a lot of attention to detail to ensure that all the information was entered correctly. Bow Foodbank wanted to know if the form submission could be automated from their WordPress website. Allowing the submitted volunteer’s data to be added automatically.

Logic Replace developed custom code interface from the website’s form to Three Rings. The code is designed to extract the data submitted through a form and then transmit the data to the respective Three Rings account via the Three Rings API. This innovative solution ensures that the form is directed to the appropriate group in Three Rings, making the entire process much more efficient and streamlined. With this advanced feature, users can rest assured that their submitted data is handled securely and accurately, without any complications or delays.

When a volunteer fills out a form, their data is automatically assigned a unique ID that determines which organization it will be added to and where it will be placed within that organization. This feature is made possible through Logic Replace’s custom code and is not a pre-existing function of the 3Rings API. It’s important to note that Logic Replace’s code is not limited to WordPress websites, but can be implemented on any PHP-based website, making it a versatile solution for organizations looking to efficiently manage their volunteer data.

By implementing the solution, a considerable amount of time is saved while minimizing the chances of errors. The proficient team at Bow Foodbank is immediately notified through an automated system when a new volunteer form is submitted. They no longer have to go through the tedious process of logging into their Three Rings account to access the details of the volunteer’s application. This enhances the efficiency of the volunteer management system and empowers the team to focus on other crucial aspects of their work.
