What is a template and why do I need one?

You may run all of Meet The Need’s software through your organization’s web site and make it all look exactly like your organization’s site by creating a template for your Meet The Need account. A template is the “wrapping” (header and footer) that is copied from your website to make all of your MTN search pages (buttons/links) appear seamless to the volunteer. Once you have built your template, all of your links showing specific types of needs will appear within your web site template, and you simply attach those links to buttons you add to your web site to let your members and visitors to “shop” on your web site for opportunities to serve at your organization or in the community . Through your template and associated links, you have complete control of what options, screens, and types of needs users will be able to see through your web site.
