If you are the administrator of a group, you will likely need to verify impacts to confirm that the information the volunteers have provided is accurate. As an administrator, you are able to see information about the statuses of individual impacts by going to your "Manage Impacts" page. Here, we will describe what each of these status designations mean.
Impacts start out as pending. This status means that the impact is awaiting verification — the administrator who would need to verify has not yet done so.
Once an administrator verifies (approves) the impact, its status switches to verified. Administrators can verify an impact via their email or GivePulse notifications when someone has made an impact. Verification can also be done by logging and navigating to "Manage Impacts" to verify the impacts. For more about this, see our article about impact verification.
If, however, the administrator has examined the impact and does not feel comfortable verifying it, the administrator is able to change the status to disputed. This may be because the record is inaccurate in the time, date, or location of the impact. The administrator has the ability to provide a reason for the dispute.
Any updates to impact verifications are easily accessible through the impact's verification logs.
From here, the user can view dispute notes, edit an impact, or contact the disputer.
If a user changes the group, event, date, or duration after it has been verified, the impact status will return to pending.
