CiviCRM Entity Reference Field is a submodule of the CiviCRM Entity project, which tightly integrates CiviCRM data into Drupal by exposing API entities as Drupal entity types.

Setting up CiviVolunteer

When it comes to CiviVolunteer, it is not exactly obvious how to use it. There is obviously "The Guide" but it doesn't really tell all the details on how to get around things, and unless you are a very experienced user who knows CiviCRM by heart with eyes, closed you might spend quite some time on figuring out where to click, what to enable and what not.
