Pros: Usability

Cons: Connectivity between delegates is ZERO

Overall: As an attendee of an event, Sched is very easy to use, until you want to connect with another attendees and then it's TERRIBLE. You have to rely on the delegates uploading their social network accounts and then use Linked in or FB to message them. This is not good. We have received many complaints within 24 hours of launching the service. FAIL.

Vendor Response

by Sched on December 11, 2017

Hey Jasper, Thank you for taking the time to review and help Sched improve. I'm sorry for my delayed response, Capterra didn't publish this review for me to see until December 2017 for some reason. Networking is something we're looking into improving down the road. It's definitely not our strong-suit currently and I'm really sorry that the lack of attendee messaging was a surprise to you. We should have done a better job clarifying that before you decided to use Sched at your event. Our current strength is on the planning / rsvp side of things, to help organizers like yourself better forecast what will be popular and help attendees reserve seats and check-in at the event. We also make it easy to manage your event from one place by publishing info both on your site and app in one go. We're passionate about improving and helping organizers like yourself throw better events. We'll keep at it and perhaps you'll give us another shot some day.

This is our 5th year using Sched and it's so easy to use and their customer service is outstanding!

Pros: Customer Service - quick responses and always willing to assist.
User-friendly admin side and lots of options.
Looks great!
They are constantly improving and adding new features every year.

Cons: We use it for our educational technology conference to let attendees easily plan which sessions they want to attend. For our purposes, we have no "cons."

Sched is absolutely the best scheduling service out there.

Pros: It looks good. It can be embedded to your website. It's an app. It's a dedicated service. You can add your speakers, sponsors, sessions... etc. It's very versatile and functional.

P.S. Sched was a sponsor of ours so I'm not sure about the value for money. I'd imagine though that this kind of service is definitely worth it.

Cons: Manipulating the embedded parts isn't the easiest but it still trumps all other services.
Uploading photos & logos can be a bit laborious but it's better than having a non-uniform appearance.

I have used 6 different apps and always come back to Sched for my festival conference. It gets the j

Pros: It is easy to set up, use, integrate into our website and looks good. It works well on everyone's phone at the conference.

Cons: It doesn't have all the functionalities we need. We also have had a terrible time getting it in the store but not sure it is their fault.

Easy to learn and so many benefits for $125

Comments: If you want a software that's easy to learn and use, and makes you look good, get Sched. Incredibly product for the price. Customization costs a bit more, but if you're a paid event with a lot of attendees, stop complaining. You can't find a good product for free!

Sched looks good, works great, and is staffed by a team of genuinely kind and smart people. Love the school and non-profit discount. Thanks for making me look like a champion, guys!

Pros: Sched kept our three day conference running smoothly. Room assignments, updates, and overall communication. Our feedback survey (google doc) was right there and we received far more evaluations than usual.

Cons: I did not see any cons. I would have liked to have had the additional upgraded features and will probably upgrade for another event.

Pros: The mobile app makes it easier for conference attendees to see their daily scheduling opportunities...

Cons: It's a bit confusing on the administration end of the software.

Overall: Sched is a good program to use if you're moving an event toward a paperless status!
