Pros: I love the service and how it shows status in real time, and parents like the flexibility to rearrange appointments at will. The reminders are a very good thing, and I had zero unannounced no-shows at any appointment. The notification options for participants, being able to send a link in email AND post a button to my website was brilliant. I think I caught every parent I needed to see, and others clearly knew they had the option to meet with me if they wished.

Cons: I use the free service and am unlikely to purchase an upgrade at this time. (I only benefit your company in terms of eyeballs and awareness as my students families sign in, and as I recommend your site to other teaching colleagues.) In order for me to continue to be a devotee of SignUp.com, I need an easier and more obvious way to find the list of parents who signed up with the field that shows who their child is in my class. With today's blended families, parent last names are not an indicator of who their child is. As a middle school teacher with 100+ student on my rosters, I need a fast way to see who the adult is that has made the appointment, as well as who is the child they are coming to consult about. I bounced around your multiple list views and reports before contacting Help. Their response was very swift, (yay!), but the answer was not self-evident to me as a user: I needed to pull up a Check-In report, and there I would at last find the students names shows, as long as I checked the show extra fields box when requesting the report.

All told, I figured out the answer over the course of a couple of afternoons, but I admit I was getting frustrated. When I told this to SignUp customer service, the were back to me within minutes and expressed they would look into how to make it more intuitive in the future.

One can't beat their responsiveness!

One of the best tools ever for volunteer coordinators!

Pros: 1) intuitive

2) it doesn't ask for a lot of unnecessary info from volunteers

3) it's quick and easy to sign up large groups

4) you can attach a volunteer waiver with the paid subscriptions

5) you have the ability to print out a roster, a check-in form or a summary

Cons: A minor fix - I would just like to see the ability to use a single email address to sign up multiple groups. For example, a coach who signed up her track team to volunteer, can also use the same email address to sign up her youth church group for the same event. Right now, the same coach needs to use two different email addresses to be able to do that.

Overall: As a volunteer coordinator working with hundreds of volunteers 15 to 20 times a year, I treat it as a multi-use tool - a worksheet, a roster, a plan and a summary or report post-event. It makes managing volunteers on paper so easy. At a glance, I can see how many more I need and for what task, day or event.

I love SignUp.com because it helps our agency organize events and volunteers.

Pros: How easy it is.

Cons: It is really nothing. I just did not like the name change from VolunteerSpot to SignUp. When it was VolunteerSpot it was easier for new volunteers to find us.

Overall: It give us a way to get reports for our events and help us give clear information to our volunteers. I understand the reason for changing the name. However, I like it when it was VolunteerSpot it helped my new volunteers find us easier.

Recommendations to other buyers: Well, I know the service is to help schools. However, I have a volunteer agency and this is an amazing service for me as well. However, I have a problem with not being able to find the services we do listed. I always have to call what we do OTHERS, or Events Services. We work with Non and For-Profits. If there is anyway I can help I would love to. I have used this service for a few years and though it is amazing and I have not found anything to match it, it does need a little help to work with my agency and a few of the other organizations that I have suggested use the program.

Really simple to use, both as a manager and from the volunteer side.

Pros: The ease of use. We have a wide range of volunteers with a wide range of computer skills. Everyone is able to sign up, and I have had nothing but positive feedback from our volunteers about SignUp.com. The automatic reminders are great, being able to fun reports with hours is really great for tracking volunteer hours. When I run into other volunteer managers looking for a new system, I always bring up SignUp.

Cons: I do wish it had volunteer profile pages. I know not having them is what makes it so easy to sign up, but as a manager I do wish I could gather some more info from our volunteers. Also if it could feed into our database, that would be nice. To be able to cross reference volunteers and donors would be great.

Pros: It is easy to use and very user friendly. The links make it easy to use and for students to access.

Cons: Sometimes I would get cancellations but students did not cancel.

Overall: It has helped our Latinos in Action Program here at Kearns High tremendously!

We do a lot of service projects, service activities, social and cultural activities as part of our class. Before, we would print out a sign Up sheet and pass it around the class. Students would only be able to sign up when they came to class and would forget they did. They would also have things come up and not tell me, which is infuriating.

Our show up rate was very low and not very good. We'd get 20 people to sign up and only 5-6 show up.

This past year, we switched to using Sign Up .com, and our show up rate has increased dramatically. Students can sign up when they see a new activity posted, get reminders and communicate if they can't make it anymore on their terms, which makes things so much easier for me as a teacher.

I have encouraged all Latinos in Action Programs to use it! I highly recommend it!

We use it for our volunteer sign up for events!

Pros: We tend to have the same events every year so being able to copy then tweak the details the following week is amazing! The details, including dates, shift time, and descriptions do a great job of setting out volunteers up with all the info they will need pre-event. I like the export feature so I can go in a get all the details and set it up how I like in Excel.

Cons: We tried the updated version and we were unable to make the check in work for us for large groups - there was no easy way to edit if people brought more or less than the amount they said. I brought this to the attention of their Support Team and they were SO understanding and tried to give suggestions and be accommodating. They showed appreciation for the constructive criticism and stated they would work to improve this feature in the future.

Overall: It's quick, easy, detailed, and easy to share, access and edit. I am so thrilled to be able to use this software, it helps is tremendously when recruiting and setting up volunteers for our events.

Comments: I've also used SignUp.com to organize a professional luncheon, and our turnout was higher than ever -- we believe because of the ease of RSVP-ing and paying in just a matter of minutes. Will definitely recommend SignUp.com and use it again in the future, enthusiastically!

Pros: Setting up the RSVP and payment functions (through WePay) was straightforward and intuitive. While not specifically designed for this specific function (a high school class reunion), it worked spectacularly and not only helped people RSVP, but also commit with their payments and get automatic periodic reminders. It took the pain out of having to collect money in cash or checks, and eliminated the need to post "someone at the door" to collect, so that all of us could just enjoy the reunion when it arrived. Also the ability to generate the list of RSVPs (sign-ups) and share with others was terrific.

Cons: For us, gathering RSVPs but also collecting money, the process of going from one to the other could be improved as a few people signed up but didn't pay at first, and others paid at first but didn't "sign up." Once the organizer chooses to collect money, the system should self-configure to guide the end-user (who is signing up) to both sign up and then pay, to avoid having people do one part but not the other.

Pros: Had a great turn out at my parent conferences because SignUp automatically sent the invite to the parent's email address. They could sign up for one slot that fit their schedules so I did not have to send home a sign up list, have them choose three spots, and hope that I did not schedule another conference with on their selection. Signup sends an email reminder to all the families. All I had to do was set it up. No reminder notes to send home and no switching around conferences-easy peasy.

Cons: Sometimes it was hard to navigate between setting up the spots and checking who signed up. I wasn't always notified when a parent signed up, so I had to check it daily. This wasn't a big deal, but I had to make sure ALL of my parents had signed up. Also, not all parent have access to a computer, so they didn't check their email. However, I just called those parents and inserted their names so I could print out a complete schedule for the week of conferences.

Pros: I have a bank of volunteers with whom I work as a nonprofit organization. When a community outreach event comes up and I need to notify volunteers, then I go to SignUp. It's easy to set up, navigate and operate. I create the venue and notify the volunteers right away.

The volunteers can sign up by selecting which outreach event, location, and shift they want to volunteer for. Right at their disposal is a complete description of their responsibilities and duites. SignUp does all the work by reminding the volunteers of their assignment via email. As the Executive Director, I too get notification when someone signs up as a volunteer and the reminders that were sent. I can closely track all of the activity, know who has signed up and can opt to generate a sign-in sheet.

It's a great way to centralize the nonprofit community outreach activity. It provides one-stop shopping so volunteers can see what fits their fancy. I absolutely love it! It has decreased my admin time by at least one-third. It's like having an admin assistant to complete the work I don't have time to do!

Cons: Volunteers can't find the location/address of the event once they've signed up. It's there, but just appears to be buried and not as visible as it should be.

There are too many adds and it makes the page look busy.

Pros: It makes being a volunteer organizer a lot easier.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Overall: I have used Volunteer Spot / Signup.com now for two years and three different applications as I am the volunteer coordinator for all three. Signup allows our volunteers to check the calendar of events, select the date and time slot that works best for them and sign up, easy. The beauty of this program is that it then alerts me to the activities, when someone signs up and in some cases where they withdraw as well. I would highly recommend Signup.com to all volunteer coordinators or those who are managing volunteers. Thank you so much for also having a no charge version of this program for those of us who are doing small groups and nonprofits as well.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are a volunteer coordinator I highly suggest that you at least try SignUp.com. If you do not like or appreciate what it can do for you then discontinue using it. My guess is that once you get it set up and use it a few times you will love it, it gives your volunteers the power to choose their spot giving them some control. Now you may still have to send out email reminders if it is an ongoing event like I do to remind people to check their availability but that is okay too. Now if SignUp could just find us more volunteers........ Great program, try it out.

Pros: Ease of use

Cons: Wish I could figure out how to go in and add a person's email address after they've signed themselves up but didn't give you that information. They miss out on your reminders if you don't have their email address and I'd like to know how to add it without having to delete their name and then re-enter it. If I delete their name to do that, then they will get an email from you saying that I deleted their shift and gave them a new assignment. This confuses the worker when they wonder why I deleted their shift. Is there a way for me to just add their email address without the worker receiving this notice?

Overall: Our church's bazaar runs for five days in the Fall (this includes 1 1/2 days of set-up and 3 1/2 days for the actual bazaar. For two year's I've organized the approximately 150 shift workers using your site and found it a breeze to use and tremendously helpful. Being notified if anyone cancelled helped a lot. Your email reminders a couple days before each worker's shift made my job so much easier. Your quick response to any questions I had was wonderful. The site is so easy for me to use and the shift workers loved it, too. Thanks.

Pros: ease of set-up and use

flexibility of set-up options

reliability - no down time

communication "hooks" (messaging) that is built in

uploads of external contact lists very easy and error free

Cons: some of the reporting could be improved, and I am not thrilled that I have to pay the top price to be able to do cross-signup reports. Maybe someday that will become a standard feature.

Overall: I have been using this software for about 3 years now to organize the over 200 volunteers who manage our annual charitable event, a used book sale sponsored by the Friends of the Guelph Public Library. Although retired now (and volunteering!) I have worked with LOTS of software people in my nearly 30 years of IT work, and the SIGNUP support team are a notch way above the average in absolutely every way. They answer questions quickly. The FAQ's are actually helpful. The videos are sometimes all you need to understand a set-up issue. As well, they understand that most of the people who use their software are not made of money, and so are willing to allow some flexible payment adjustments if you cannot afford to "Drive the Cadillac" all year round. One thing that is very important is product consistency or improvement. This was a solid product when it was Volunteerspot, but it just keeps getting better. The transition to SignUp was completely seamless, no glitches at my end, and the new features that came along with the change to SignUp make this an excellent volunteer management tool. Do not hesitate to give this a try!

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it. I feel that it will manage almost any group's activity!

Pros: I especially like that reminders are sent out to parents. I no longer have parents forgetting to come to a conference. I also really like that parents can easily follow the link sent out without having to sign in to the site. My previous sign ups are also saved and this allows me to look back to see who signed up. Parents are also able to change their sign up times without me having to get involved. It is a super fair way do conference sign ups and it makes my life so much easier.

Cons: At this point I do not have anything that I do not like. Since I do not use the site all the time it takes me a few minutes each time to get used to things again. However, it is easy enough to figure out and I have not had any problems getting around the site and getting the job done that I need to do.

Thank you.

Pros: The best thing about this product is that it is SO easy to use and setup. Our volunteers enjoy the ease of online sign-ups and the helpful reminders when their shift is near.

Cons: I love everything about the service. I have nothing negative to share.

Overall: The product is easy to setup and our volunteers find it simple to use. We have been using this service for 3 years and have found it to be a BIG time saver. We shotgun out an email through sign-up.com to all of our registered volunteers. They can go the the sign-up area and choose which shifts they wish to volunteers. We have an active record of our volunteers spots that are filled and the volunteer receives a reminder email a few days before their volunteer shift. The biggest benefit is that I can clone previous events where we typically have the same need for volunteers. Simply change the dates for the event and all of the open shifts are automatically placed into the cloned event. WOW! Love this service!

SignUP is an EXCELLENT system for coming alongside a teacher to setup meeting and events.

Pros: The task of scheduling my parent-teacher conferences was less challenging, and actually gave the parent "buy-in," holding the students' parents accountable to their own date and time choice, rather than the teacher assigning the parent "a date!" Also, the reminders sent out by SignUp to parents...great help!

Cons: The technology aspect allows the parent "an out" for attending with a simple "click " on a device, the parent can cancel, switch times, etc. My schedule seemed to change a few times in the '11th hour.'

Overall: TIME saved....many steps are bypassed on the teacher's part when using SignUp, so the relief of not having to send home hard copy letters requesting a parent to list their "top 3 dates available," then having to place parents into a schedule, resend a letter home to parents, etc.... So much TIME saved on teachers' parts. Thank you SignUp.com staff!!! You are so appreciated!

Pros: There are so many pros to this site, I probably will not be able to remember them all. Here are just a few: It gives parents more incentives to come to conferences as they can choose & change their times to their convenience. It uses modern ways of communication so that more parents are apt to use it as there is no pressure and it takes only a few seconds to sign up. It's basic version is free so that schools on a budget can use it. It is user friendly. It has excellent organization. It saves the organizer's time. Who ever designed it understands how to organize events as even the smallest details are covered, for example the sign ups can be locked, email reminders are sent, reports can be generated, other teachers can get live reports of who is coming. Can't think of any improvements. Made my life easier... ;)

Overall: Parent conferences had the highest attendance since I've been in the Middle School. Saved me a ton of time.

Pros: Thank you for creating this perfect way to communicate in the digital age we live in. Setting up the requests and having people sign up by attaching a link in an email was so easy and extremely helpful.

We started using the services last year and everything is executed perfectly.

To be able to send the group a quick note of thanks after the event and have everyones email addresses at the click of a button couldn't have been easier.

We will continue to use for any and all events we need help with.

Cons: Nothing. We have used SignUp for volunteers and donations over the last 2 years.

Everyone has responded well and the software has been very user friendly.

Overall: I had all my information about the volunteers in one place. To be able to click a few buttons and send out a mass email was wonderful.

Pros: It is easy to use and allows me to add volunteer jobs, add shifts along with writing separate descriptions. It is easy to add to, easy to make changes, run reports and sends reminders to participants along with emails to me about changes and final names for the event. It is great.

Cons: When I receive the emails, there are ads on the letters. But I understand that it is necessary, especially as it is free to us! As a non-profit with $0 budget for this, I am grateful for this tool.

Overall: SignUp.com has eased the process that I used to manage large events needing many volunteers doing different jobs with Excel spreadsheets... volunteers changing shifts, emailing me with every change or question. It was so time consuming. Now I can send out all the openings, with details on each shift and people can make their own selections and changes if they want. I am more efficient and able to reach more people with the sign-up link. I can post the signup link in lots of places and everyone can access it. It is just terrific.

Comments: Using this software was an extremely positive experience. I have nothing but praise for the software and the people who manage it. We found a small glitch in the confirmation before our registration opened and emailed tech support. We had an answer and resolution within 2 hours even though the tech request was sent at 5:30 pm! The tech support is amazing! Quick to respond, clear in their resolution and super polite. I would highly recommend this site to anyone!

Pros: This software was very easy to use, even for our complicated schedule of journeys per day. Confirmations and reminders went out without a glitch and our attendance was wonderful. We even used it to request food donations to feed our volunteers during the presentations. For a small church with no budget, the cost to use this software was a God send!

Cons: I have absolutely nothing negative to say. This is a terrific resource! Using this site made managing the sign ups very easy and there was no need for me to keep track of confirmations and reminders. Even printing out the registrations was simple to do. This site is truly amazing!

Pros: Sign zip is great. The ability to publish a calendar and allow them to sign up for events that they are available for. You're able to create shifts and give them information in regards to the event. We love the abilities to automatically send out reminders to all those who sign up.

Cons: I cannot think of any cons of this software. It has truly streamlined our volunteer process and makes their experience easy and friendly. They have enjoyed the ability to plan ahead and feel honored in the process.

Pros: We do two major fundraisers and a number of concert and other events during the year that we use volunteers for. We started using signup.com about 3 or 4 years ago and it has worked very well for our needs. It keeps our volunteer information in one place and is flexible enough for us to use for various types of events. The set up is easy and once your volunteer's information is in the system it is easy to send out invitations and confirmations for volunteering opportunites.

Cons: It had a small learning curve, but once you have set up an event and figured out the process it works easily.

Overall: We have been very pleased with signup.com and it has saved us time and money not having to utilize staff on the phone or using the mail.

Pros: Ease of use, free, clear graphics, allows use of pictures/photos, volunteers can access some parts of the program to be independent in signing up and making some changes, makes a permanent record of the event and who participated. Keeps things well organized and transparent.

Cons: Short but necessary learning. Curve. Several of our older volunteers who are not very technology savvy had difficulty accessing and using the software and kept needing reinforcement. Hard to share info with others unless using a more advanced (must pay for it) version.

Overall: Organization was easy, no pencil and paper required, easy to access and to retrieve, well organized events that ran smoothly and raised a lot of money or helped a lot of people.

Pros: This program is such a great time saver. As a teacher, I have so much grading and planning to do for my students and setting up the conferences used to take so much time away from these essentials. Now, I can schedule conferences without the back and forth communications that used to be the norm with the traditional paper scheduling. Now participants can switch spots without having to contact me. I really like the updates about who has signed up so I can email parents the link again when they have not yet set up their appointment for a conference. Therefore, this program has been a great convenience and I won't go back to paper schedules.

Cons: Each slot has to be individually set up rather than being able to put in a timeframe with a start and end time that self populates the time slots.

Overall: I spent less time setting up appointments. I have a record of the schedule.

SignUp.com simplified volunteer sign up for the food outreach activities of our church!

Pros: Once an activity is created it can be copied into any other dates needed. Our needs repeat monthly, so this was a great help! The system is easy to use because it doesn't require and account and one more password to memorize! The automatic notices and reminders were also appreciated by our organizers and volunteers. And church leadership valued the reports we could generate to track who was volunteering and how many volunteer hours had been donated.

Cons: The mobile version and the desktop version work very differently, so that caused some confusion with our volunteers until I realized the problem and provided instructions for both kinds of devices.

Overall: Much easier to invite new volunteers, ensured we had volunteers for activities and that we had them in the positions needed, simplified reporting to church leadership, enabled us to message volunteers about changes.

Pros: You can access a free version, which had all the functionality we needed. The automatic shift reminders, the ability to let volunteers schedule themselves and the comprehensive reporting made this an ideal solution for us. It's also super simple to set up and use.

Cons: Anything I didn't like or wanted to see was available in the paid upgrade, so I really can't complain when I was getting everything for free.

Overall: We host an annual conference that moves around the county, so we set up the event, the shifts, and job descriptions and gave local partners the SignUp link to send to their volunteers. It was so turnkey and easy for everyone to understand.

This is great for the organizer and for the volunteers! So easy to use!

Comments:

My event was on December 28th. It was my 2nd annual Christmas Dinner for the Homeless.

Last year anyone that wanted to volunteer to help out sent me an email. I had 174 volunteers! While that is wonderful that so many people wanted to help, it was a nightmare for me. Actually, it was the most difficult part of planning my event.

I had to return everyone's email. Usually more than once. My Co-Chair and I had to assign a job for everyone so that we didn't have 174 people showing up without an assignment. It was a nightmare.

Last year someone from our school/Church suggested that I use your software "signup.com" for our event next year. We use it at our school and everyone loves it. So this year, I decided what positions I needed and how many people and posted it. It worked perfectly! I only had to return a few emails this year and had just the amount of people I needed. 174 was WAY too many!

On the day of the event, I printed out a report with names and assignments and I was all set! The only problem I encountered was that I added the day before the event for some help with making gift bags and cookies. I only had 1 person show up because I don't think that the other people noticed that it was the day before the event, not the same day. It's hard to tell that they are separate. Other than that, it worked perfectly for me.

Thank you so much for making this available for free! It's really helpful for people like me that are working on a small budget.

Sign Up helped us do away with those old sign up sheets!

Pros: Sign Up allows people to easily sign up for regular volunteer spots or special event spots. The set up is nice and easy to lay out the positions we have available. We can easily link it to our web and emails so people can click and they are there.

Cons: Some of our team administrators struggle with things like setting up events and such. This could be a little more user-friendly on the admin side.

Pros: We have been using your software to schedule about 75 spots (big sales) and about 15 spots (small sales) from a base of a bit over 100 volunteers for our quarterly (and mini) book sales at our library for almost three years.

Our volunteers like it and I find it a necessity. We used to have one person call (telephone!) all and schedule it. Took hours and hours. We still have about a dozen volunteers that do not use email, so we still have to call some. We enter them manually into the system with a dummy email. It works just fine.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thanks for what you are doing!

We are so pleased with SignUp and using it for our Moderators/Monitors volunteer spots.

Pros: Everyone rants about how easy it is to use, they don't need to provide full info only if they want, they love the reminders and that they can get it on their phones.

I love it as a coordinator to just copy last years schedule and change the titles and times. The reports are great, the organization of emails, thank you's and participants is great!

Cons: I was going to start looking at how it can be combined with "The call for Papers" for our conference. Wondering if at some point we could input from a excel spread sheet? Rather than having to keying all the info just link it to a table or spreadsheet that would be updated.

Pros: Signup sends out reminders when a person signs up, when they change their shifts, and then at the time of the event. I organize an event once a year and Signup lets me duplicate the prior signup, then modify it with new dates.

Cons: It's pretty perfect. But I wish there were a more straightforward way to carry over a list of past volunteers to recruit them for the following year. I can do it, but it's a few steps and I worry about double mailing some of them.

Overall: Volunteers have control over their shifts, get reminders, and I get a roster for the day. It's easy to send out the link to invite people to volunteer.

I absolutely love this site, it helps in organizing and getting others to help carry the financial & responsibility load that comes with doing events and fun stuff for our kids!! Every can participate in some way and even make details notes about what there are bringing or just commenting to each other. Thanks for creating such an outstanding system for "group" communication and planning!! Our church group's (Youth and Family Ministry) YNF is getting a lot of great support with events because of this site's easy sign-up feature!! And changes can be easily made by the administrator!! Thanks again.

Pros:

It was easy to use, and it worked flawlessly.

Thanks for helping us help the families at the Ronald McDonald House.

Cons: I really did not have any issues. The program let me customize the request--allowing me to upload images which made it more personal, which I appreciated.

Overall: I used signup.com to create events for food donations for a service project my students were doing at the Ronald McDonald House. After I created the events--like donate 10 lbs of potatoes--Signup.com generated a link for folks to use to sign up to donate the needed items. The school administrative assistant sent the link to all the parents and all the needed items were 'signed' up for in just 5 hours! It was amazing. SIgnup also generated email reminders to those who signed up close to the day we needed the items brought to school Everything worked like a charm. Thanks

Sign Up management is a breeze with Signup.com

Overall: Perfect for a small school or small non-profit in planning an event where lots of people bring multiple items.

Pros: I like the inter-activeness of the app, I can have my employees sign up for events at any time, no more hustling to find one of my employees to fill a spot. This app is very attractive in the sense of how intuitive it was with my first use.

Cons: There could be more instruction or a support chat in place. But they make up for that ten times over for the wonderful support they have on their team! Replying to my email in one day, and having multiple support videos on how to do anything on the site. But finally I would like to thank Karmen with the SignUp support team for answering my question within a day and showing true customer compassion!

Overall: Just so much time being saved as am employee who works on the schedules week after week, this app has done for me in a day what I've been able to do in months and believe me im very capable and great at my job.

Saves me hours of work every week!

Pros: I love how

...I can (with the free version) set up multiple pages for different ministries.

...it automatically emails volunteers to remind them.

...it links with Remind so I can recruit at large without leaving the website.

Cons: I wish I could have several people with the same email address (i.e., a mom and child -- so they could sign up separately). Right now, I can only have parents sign up and we have children volunteer spots available, but I can't use the site to plug them in.

I don't know if I can see all the spots and volunteers for one date. I get an email for that weekly, but it would be nice to see it on the website. If it is available, it is not intuitive.

Overall: As the volunteer coordinator for my church, this allows me to keep a pulse on different ministries without pulling out my hair. This saves me so much time!

We have been using SignUp.com for the past few years and LOVE everything about it!

Cons: I have not found a feature in this software that I have not been able to work with, and our parents have responded well to SignUp.com too!

Overall: This software is a time saver, an organizer, a simplifier, a quantifier and is well-received by our parents. Enough said!

Pros: Ease of use & reliability. I have used several different scheduling applications in the past. Each of them was either difficult to use and/or unreliable. SignUp is neither of these: It is easy to set up the appointment schedule; it is easy for clients to choose appointments (and change them). The clients are reminded two days before the appointment is scheduled. I get reminders showing my appointment schedule for the next week and the next day. I get notified when a client changes an appointment time. If my schedule changes, it is easy to add or remove appointment times.No "cons

Cons: No "cons." It is a relief to have software working for me, instead of against me.Twice a year

Overall: Twice a year, I have to set up 60+ 30-minute appointments over a three-week period. It takes me about 15 minutes to do so.

Pros: Using SignUp is really easy and makes organizing an event so much simpler! In the past, I had people RSVP by e-mailing me, then I created a spreadsheet of who was coming and what they were bringing, but SignUp does all that for me.

Pros: I coordinate around 50 volunteers who sign up to help out in a variety of ways - evening set up, morning clear up, cooking a meal, staying overnight - at a homeless shelter that we run for 10 weeks. We used signup.com for the first time this year and it made a huge difference. Volunteers could choose dates and tasks, I could easily see where more people were needed, they were sent reminders that they had signed up and I was sent a weekly list of volunteers. This year the coordination exercise was so much easier than it had been in the past. I have recommended signup.com to other groups in the scheme who are running an overnight shelter. Thanks, Leighton

Cons: Took me a bit of time to move my way around the software, but once I did, it was pretty easy.

Overall: I have said all this in the 'pro' section

Pros: I've appreciated the tremendous support. Whenever I've had a question, I've received a response within a few hours. I'm not a real techie, so it is comforting to know that help is available when you need it.

Cons: When assigning people to a Signup/job, I would like to be able to pull names from other Signups for that group, rather than having to input info for a volunteer who is already recorded for a different job in that group.

Overall: Non-profits couldn't exist without volunteers. This software makes it easy for them (which means they'll help out again!) as well as for the coordinator who is often juggling many balls. In fact, Signup made the whole volunteer component of our Film Festival so easy that I recommended it for another festival with which I'm involved!
