Log Hours

To report your Volunteer or Advanced Training (AT) Hours:

Click on the link below the link below to sign in to the system.
https://www.trackitforward.com

Your username is your email address.
If you don’t know, or have forgotten your password. You can set (or reset) it by following the “set password” prompts.

  • Once you log in to Track it Forward, you will be taken to a page where the left side of the page is for reporting your hours and the right side is for checking your accumulated hours.

To report your hours,

Select the number of hours from the drop-down “Hours” menu (round up to the nearest half hour).

Then select the date you completed those hours (you do not need to be absolutely precise, but use your best estimate)

From the drop-down “Activity” menu, select either “Volunteer” or “Advanced Training”, depending on which type of hours you are reporting.

Enter the name of your supervisor in the space provided.

Enter any notes about the activity you think would be helpful to distinguish the current activity from others you might be logging.

Finally (and very importantly!) click Submit Time (orange button at the bottom of the page)

 

 To check your hours or correct mistakes

 On the right side of the page are the hours you have entered.  You can click on the numbers in the blue boxes to see notes about these entries, along with any notes, and you will also see the word “edit” in blue.  If you click on this, you can change the entry to correct any mistakes made previously.

NOTE: Note that hours reported up to Oct 1, 2019 have been condensed by year. The “year” reported is the calendar year, which begins in January and ends in December, rather than the volunteer year, which, depending on the class you were in, might begin in March, June, or Sept, and end a year after your class ended.  Rest assured that the “IMN year” data has been retained, BUT because giving you access to this data would require even more data entry than has already been done, it is not reported here.  However, if you have questions about any data you have submitted via the old system, just email info@iowamasternaturalists.org   and we can look it up.
