Verification of hours is meant to be done by a contact person who is over the activity which the student submits. (Approval of hours is meant to be done by a school staff member who is approving the hours towards a goal in their school's x2VOL account.) Verifying hours in x2VOL replaces the need for a piece of paper with a signature to prove the student's work.
There are now three ways students hours can be verified in x2VOL:
1. Organizations verifying hours in their account - a registered organization in our system can post an event, students sign up for the event and log their hours towards it after it is over and then the organization contact can sign in to their account and verify the pending hours on their Pending Hours page.
2. Emailed link - when students log hours towards a Personal Project or an Opportunity posted by their school, an email can be sent to the project contact with a link to verify the hours.
3. **SMS Text Message - when students log hours towards a Personal Project or an Opportunity posted by their school, a text message can be sent to the project contact with a link to verify the hours.
See how verification via the sent link looks.
**Verification options are controlled by the School Admin in their Organization Settings page. Text Verification is Optional and must be turned on (by default it is off).
