Pros: Sign up Genius has made all the party planning i have to do for my children's school so easy. Getting parents to sign up to see options for what to bring is so easy because they can do it in like 2 clicks! I've never had participation like this before!

Cons: I wish you could use the "back to website" option in the "Silver" package option. It seems silly that wouldn't be available there. The next step up is over double the price.

Pros: For no-cost software, SignUpGenius provides a convenient platform for organizing volunteers to assist with projects.

Cons: The options for creating sign-up slots lack flexibility, and it is difficult to tailor the sign-up to match precisely my organization's needs.

Overall: I find the software useful for simple sign-ups, and it saves time by allowing many people to access the sign-up at one time and by sending reminders to the volunteers after they sign up.

Pros: SignUpGenius is a great tool for our school PTA parents to use to set up volunteering and item donation for events.

Cons: It is not very customizable in terms of layout or design. What you see is what you get and it's very bland.

Hi Aaron, I wanted to let you know about the ways you can customize your sign up design. In Step 2: Themes, you can add your own image or logo to one of our themes to customize your sign up page. Additionally, we offer the ability to build your own theme. This feature allows users to add multiple photos to a sign up layout as well as customize sign ups to perfectly match your group's style. Upload a unique image or browse our stock images and use our color palette to select complementary colors for your sign up theme background, buttons and text. You can learn more here: http://signupgeni.us/731r If you have any questions, please contact our Support Team: http://www.signupgenius.com/help

Pros: You know who has cracked the code for volunteer sign up? The pros, the ones who live in the trenches of bringing people together to get stuff done - I'm talking about parents and teachers of young children. The PTA president, the room parent- the poor soul who got stuck organizing the spring auction again this year. Use their knowledge and get this great freemium tool that is really easy for volunteers and organizers with lots of reminders and communication tools on both sides. It has automatic reminders, and people can change their own roles. Matching people to the right role is the art of volunteer management - let them choose their job and stop herding cats and managing spreadsheets. I am currently using sign up genius to manage volunteers for a music festival, our events person used spreadsheet last year even though I shared this tool so when I took it over I was sure that this site was my first stop. I can see that the pro functions are really useful and we are not big enough to need them but if we did they would be fully worth it.

Cons: I wish I could email everyone that signed up since my last email for a volunteer sheet that is open for longer than a few days.

Overall: Easy for organizers and volunteers, it sends automatic reminders and lets people choose their own roles. Wouldn't run an event without it.

by SignUpGenius on June 19, 2018

Click the white button to select the sign up from the drop-down list of sign ups. Click 'Ok' Select the white Select People button and choose to send the email to those who have signed up.

Cons: Once I had to cancel and reschedule to attend a meeting and it was a little confusing and I had to navigate my way to figure it out.

Pros: Wow, just wow! How did I live before sign up genius! This is literally genius and makes it sooooooo easy to manage volunteers! What I like most is that you can do a simple sign up list or add customized settings to make it more complex. Why would you not use this!!

Cons: I'm new to sign up genius but have had no difficulty jumping right in and using it. I have yet to come across anything I do not like about this software.

Overall: There isn't anything you possibly couldnt use it for! Saves so much time for volunteers! Easy and does the work for you... my greatest benefit was the time is saved me and how it organized everything for me. I love sign up genius!!

Pros: Signup Genius is my go-to for any type of event sign up. I have used the software for anything from potluck sign-ups to bring certain dishes, to signing up for time slots for events. Signup Genius makes it easy to track group contributions for any event!

Cons: I suppose if I had to pick a con, I guess the software is a little dated in nature, but it works so well and efficiently that the dated platform isn't a concern.

Overall: Ease of use, versatility, tracking

I use sign-up genius on occasion for more complicated sign-up tasks.

Cons: It can get very confusing very quickly if you don't pay attention. Keep in mind what dates and times you want because you may not be able to see them all on the screen at once.

Pros: This is a great way for my students to sign up for time slots for meetings or the time of their presentations/exams. It's really easy for me to set up and send out an email to everyone at once with the link to signup

Cons: Sometimes not everyone gets the email at the same time and I'm not sure if that's due to their email server taking too long or the emails not going out at the same time... But usually it's pretty good about it gives everyone has a fair shot at the time they want

Pros: Signupgenius is very easy to use and I love that it makes getting people registered for events super simple. I am also a fan of the mass email communication functions.

Cons: The graphic interface is a little dated in my opinion. Themes could be more design driven and easy on the eyes.

Adding multiple slots with different times for the same signup sheet can sometimes be a little frustrating. I wish there was a way to set multiple times and slots up at once instead of manually having to enter each one.

Pros: SignUpGenius is super easy to use. Once you sign in, you can sign up for something that you've been invited to or create your own sign up. I love the feature that lets me add when I've signed up for something to my calendar without having to type anything in. I've found that by using signup, people are held accountable and more likely to volunteer for things.

Cons: On a couple of occasions, when I've been invited to signup via email, I don't see it in my signups when I login to signup genius. This has required me to logon to signup, go back into email and click on the link and then miraculously I can see the invite in my signups. Just a few extra steps to trouble shoot and really not a big deal.

Overall: Holds people accountable and promotes volunteering.

Pros: This is a great tool, we use it for my son's classroom parties as well as for baseball/hockey potlucks. We are easily able to see what others are bringing/contributing to an event so we can keep track and make sure all is covered.

Cons: Nothing, this actually is very easy to use and I haven't had any hiccups. I've used it for years and I don't even have to keep looking up my password, it just logs me in from my emails!

Pros: The basic version is FREE! It's quick to set up and it makes the parents responsible for signing up and changing sign ups if needed. You can also sign people up in a variety of ways. We use it for parent/teacher conferences as well as volunteer events.

Cons: It takes a bit to get the hang of set up. At first, the date/time slots were confusing to figure out.

Overall: It freed my office manager to get other work done because she did not have to be organizing paper lists for conferences and volunteers.

Pros: Very easy to use after a short learning curve. I've used it for two years, and have never had an issue with creating a sign-up. You can even use previous signups as a template for another signup. The number of options when creating a signup are numerous and with a little bit of work, you can have a custom signup for your event.

Cons: The learning curve can be a bit of a challenge depending on how you are configuring your signup, but once mastered, you will fine.

Pros: Really great for organizing groups. For instance, I use it often to have people sign up to bring items to an event. It's also great if you have an event and want to sign people up to be in charge of specific things at specific times during an event. For instance, if you want someone to man a table for a specific shift. It is very easy for the participant to sign up and the organizer to manage.

Cons: It can be time consuming to get all the email addresses into the software. It doesn't sync easily with a contact group in google, so you end up typing in a lot of email addresses. Once it's set up though, it works great.

Vendor Response

by SignUpGenius on May 14, 2018

We currently support uploading email addresses from Gmail, AOL, Yahoo, Windows Live accounts, Outlook and CSV files. If your emails are not in an address book or are in an address book that is not supported, we recommend that you export the email addresses into Excel from your mail program. You can then copy the column of email addresses and paste them into the SignUpGenius input box. Please make sure you copy email addresses only with no names. It is also not required to send invites directly via our site. You can choose to take the sign up live without sending emails, and instead, copy the link to the sign up and send invites from your own email program. You can also post the link on your organization's website or share the sign up via social media as well. The link to your sign up can be found by viewing the live, published version of the sign up and copying the URL from your web browser address bar. I hope these options are helpful for you.

Pros: This program is pretty much an invitation style sign up form. It is great for scheduling meetings with available sign up times, signing up for what to bring to potlucks, etc.

Cons: The layout is often difficult for the end user to understand. It would be nice if a calendar could be integrated with options on days like "3 left" etc. Also, it doesn't correlate with Outlook. It would be great if when an individual signed up, outlook appointments were automatically set.

Vendor Response

As part of our advanced features, we allow a creator/administrator to upload 'appointments' (all sign ups) to their own master calendar. The Calendar Sync feature is great for the organizer of the event since it allows you to sync all items on the sign up to your personal digital calendar. Sign up participants can also sync all of the items they¿ve signed up for to personal calendars such as Google, Apple¿s Calendar, and Microsoft Outlook. The participant can add reminders about the item they have signed up for within their personal calendar if desired.

Pros: Sign Up Genius is great. I use it all the time. It is a time saver and very easy.
I love creating one for the parents to sign up for party items. I list exactly what I want and the details and then the parents sign up.
Also, I have used it for conferences. I decide on the day and time that I am available and parents pick a time. This is a great way to make sure I don't double book two parents at one time.
It will send you an email when a parent signs up.
You can choose a theme, picture, etc to make it look nice when the parents view it.

Cons: I don't know of anything that I don't like. I really like it and recommend it. I use it several times in a school year.

Pros: Easy to create sign ups, easy to navigate. Volunteers have not reported any issued with signing up for events.

Cons: Not very pleasing to the eye. Could look a lot more streamlined and "pretty"- it looks sort of cluttered

Overall: Aids me in my ministry to help volunteers sign up for events

Pros: This software allows me to contact participants easily, and has many features which stand out in terms of user accessibility!

Cons: There are so many advanced options for customization, it is taking me a while to learn about all of them and decide whether or not I would like to use them. It takes some time to learn about this software, and its many features, before being able to use the software to its ultimate potential.

Pros: I like that it can simplify events/duties that are based on fill/unfilled time slots. I can log in, immediately see where the need is, and help out.

Cons: It looks pretty dated. Other than the aesthetics, the software is a homerun. We recently switched away from it at my church, but I'm hoping to bring it back soon.

SignUpGenius has been a great tool to ensure that slots are covered for various events.

Pros: I find that the software is simple to use as someone invited to an event. Time slots are clearly displayed and it is easy to understand when I am being asked to sign up for a day and time. I also like that they send reminders so that I don't forget about what I signed up for.

Cons: I find that the interface of the administrator side is hard to navigate. It isn't very intuitive and doesn't clearly walk me through the steps of creating a sign up sheet. It would be easier if it took me step by step.

Pros: SignUp Genius is simple to use - both as an organizer of an event and as the recipient who needs to respond. To be effective in getting a response, software like this needs to be easily accessible, non-intimidating, and familiar for the recipients. SignUP Genius accomplishes this - it is easily recognizable now as the go-to software of this kind. It allows for great customization, making set-up easy and fitting for any event.

Cons: Sometimes the ads and/or layout can come across as a bit cluttered. If SignUp Genius weren't already so recognizable with consumers, I would worry that the clutter could confuse or delay people. But it's not an insurmountable issue. Just something that SignUp Genius could work on - making the layout look a bit more forward/trendy and not so dense with tense.

Love the ease of set up and ability to share with others.

Cons: Ads & Customization only available in the premium level. Even at the lowest "pay" platform, the ads and you can only customize one view. Wish this was available in the lower level for the value, but the jump is too high for small organizations operating on shoestring budgets.

Pros: I love the different ways you can use this signup software. For a small business or non profit it is an amazing fit...especially when you consider that people are volunteers and on very different schedules. I like the stock photos and backgrounds available and the ability to personalize. The link to include paypal and other payment options also takes out the need to have a person onsite to collect payment at an event. All around, very customizable and useful!

Cons: I have not yet found a quick way to import the mailing addresses or a way to shorten the link that people can click to get to the direct site for my event.

Overall: Easy signup from multiple users across at their convenience.

Thank you for the awesome review, Allison. You can import email addresses from Gmail, AOL, Yahoo, Windows Live accounts, Outlook and CSV files. If your emails are not in an address book that is supported, you can export the email addresses into Excel from your mail program. Copy the column of email addresses and paste them into the SignUpGenius input box. It is also not required to send invites directly via our site. You can copy the link to the sign up and send invites from your own email program. You can also post the link on your church's website or share the sign up on social media. The link to your sign up can be found by viewing the live, published version of the sign up and copying the URL from your web browser address bar. To shorten the URL, you can use a shortening service. The site: www.bit.ly will create a shortened/customized URL to any link. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us http://www.signupgenius.com/help

Pros: It is easy to use; very flexible; it looks professional; great reports features. And the BEST customer support ever!! So impressed with Amanda and and Mark - quick response with answers and directions/links, etc to facilitate my understanding of the answer/process.

Cons: It is not entirely intuitive - took me a while to navigate and remember how I did what. Once I did get it, it lost its "least" feature.

Overall: I had to organize a large group (180) with respect to their choices for clinicals site, against other academic conflict. We have done this on paper in the past - a mess. And a google form wouldn't work as we needed the countdown of space remaining available in any one section. So, while we still have to do a lot of shifting, I got a high level of organization to start the shifting process.

This software makes it so easy to create group signup. Anyone can do it!

Hi Emily, There are a couple of ways you can invite other groups to your sign up. 1. From *Step 1: General Details*, assign the new group name by selecting the group from the dropdown list of groups and click *Update* at the bottom of the screen. Click, *View Live.* From the Administrator's Toolbar, click *Send a Message.* 2. Create a new group by merging any existing groups you want to invite into one group. Individual groups would remain, and you would also have a new group with all emails included. From your account page, go to the *Groups* tab located on the left side of your account page. Within the yellow header under *My Groups*, you will see three icons that allow you to transfer, merge or export a group. Check the option to merge, check the group(s) name(s) you wish to merge. Scroll to the end of your group list and click the *Green* button to complete the task. I hope this helps you manage your sign up better.

Pros: One simple list that can be modified weekly for our events. One to the parent and one reply to us!Prior to utilizing we had a email chain for both our Pre-game meal & for our game night volunteers. This meant that our entire roster ( 60-80) players parents were notified and every parent got any "replies" from the request email. Ugggggggg. I think people avoided the emails because of the burden of reading and scrolling through the list to see who was supplying what!

As a teacher, I use the website to get my students and their families signed up for conferences.

Pros: I love that everyone can see what's available and sign up on their own time. I used to use a paper sign-up sheet, and people would constantly cross things out. Plus, people would email me to ask for a spot not knowing if it was still open. Now that it's online, everything is updated in real time!

Pros: It is designed by people who understand signup for different kinds of events, meetings, and volunteer organizing. I can set repeated dates, list different slots, ask questions and print hard copies as needed!

Cons: I used the free version for about a year, and then I upgraded to Pro as I saw the need for the features. There is one feature in the next step up (More custom themes) that I would like to use, but right now I can't afford the upgrade,

Overall: This software keeps track of sign ups, so I don't have to rake through my emails and worry about forgetting someone. The ease of setting up a sign up is very good. People I work with are getting used to this is how I do things.

I have only used the free version, and I love it.

Pros: The software is very easy to use and effective in planning activities for my group.
I use it a few times a year and it has become a very powerful tool.

Cons: Not all features are accessible to non paying users.
I would like to have access to more samples.

We use this for potlucks and various church functions. Very handy!

Pros: As a church, we are always watching our pennies. This free tool is perfect for us. Thank you for making it free.

Cons: I wish we could afford to upgrade to the pro version, but because we are a church we have to stick within budget.

Excellent for setting up girl scout activities and sporting events!

Pros: It is easy to create a sign up and every easy for the people signing up to use. The invitation emails are wonderful.

Cons: I wish there were more header/title pictures to choose from. Sometimes it takes a while for the customized picture to be approved.

Pros: The ease of creating multiple dates, time slots, # of sign ups per time slot. And it saves me so much time!

Cons: Sometimes it takes a few tries to figure out how to do more detailed sign ups, but it always works out.

I love all of it except for one very small thing.

Pros: Nice that I can send it in an email or put the link onto a Facebook page. For those who receive the link to sign up it is quick, easy and very user friendly.

Cons: The time am pm is a little difficult to use. I wish the time included am and pm when you are setting up an event. That would make it a lot easier.

Overall: Ease and information

Pros: I love that this software allows parents to sign up easily for a conference. No more back and forth about when I'm available and when they are available. It's very convenient.

Cons: I wish there was an undo button when setting up recurring dates. I also wish there was a larger calendar view when previewing the dates I've put in rather than just a list of dates.

Overall: I schedule conferences with my students' parents with ease!

Thank you for your feedback, Shahna. The default format of sign ups created with our system is a list format. However, we do offer the option for the sign up creator to show multiple date sign ups in a calendar view format. Log in with your email and password. Go to the *Created* tab and select the pencil icon to the right of your sign up. Go to: *Step 4: Slots*. Scroll to the end of the page where you will see the heading *Advanced Settings*. Click on the (+) sign and the Advanced Settings options will display. Locate the last option: *Show Calendar View by Default* and click the option to the 'On' position. Keep in mind, the calendar view is available only for multiple date sign ups. Remember to select 'Update' to save the changes to this setting. I hope this helps manage your conference sign ups easier.

I have used it for education and personal uses without 1 glitch.

Pros: I can sign others up who are not tech savvy and they get reminders to their email which may be the only tech they use (old, young, language learners).

Cons: I shouldn't have to log out of the account by clicking not me in a sign up to add other people. I also want more space in the comment section.

Thank you for your feedback, Tameka. As the creator of the sign up, you can sign someone up while logged into your account. Locate the *Add/Edit/Delete People* button from the *Admin. Toolbar* just above your sign up. From the next page select the option to, *Sign Someone Up* in the top right corner for a standard format sign up. If your sign up is an RSVP format, select *RSVP for Someone*. If the person is not in a group, choose the option to *Add New Person*. Enter the first name, last name and email address. If the person does not have an email address, you can leave that field blank. Select the *Add Items* button. Check each item to add, click *Submit & Continue* at the end of the page. Choose either to send or not send an email to this person. Click *Save and Finish* or *Save and Add Another Person*. We also provide a tutorial to walk you through the steps to add someone to the sign up. http://www.signupgenius.com/videos/adding-people-to-sign-up.cfm

Not obvious how to set it up properly!

Pros: easy to use for one day event only and you can also edit a given section. It's free and many people seem to have used it before so do not have qualms about using this platform when I send it to them.

Cons: Once you have more than one day for an event w/ various time slots, the program does not provide a logical way to provide various volunteer slots.

by SignUpGenius on September 05, 2017

Thank you for your feedback, Susan. Based on what you described, you will want to assign slot entries to show for *Selected Dates/Times*. In Step 3: Dates/Times, you can enter as many dates and time slots as you need for your event. Then in Step 4:Slots, you can apply slots to selected dates/times so the job you need filled is associated with the correct date and time. Our support team is available 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We will be happy to assist you with creating your sign up. Please don't hesitate to contact us: http://www.signupgenius.com/help

Pros: It is amazing how much easier it is to schedule volunteer orientations, events and set up shifts. My favorite feature would have to be the fact that once someone signs up they receive a reminder e-mail about their sign up so I don't have to do that piece. Its amazing.

Cons: Setting up shifts! I'm not a fan of the fact that the Date/Time is on a different tab than the Slots. I don't understand why they don't make that piece a bit more user friendly.

Overall: Saving time!

Pros: We enjoyed the ease of use and simplicity of SignUp Genius. There is no way to not comprehend usage of the system on the general volunteer level, like some other more complicated volunteer management systems.

Cons: SignUp Genius is great for small nonprofits or churches, but not medium (25-50) or large (50+) nonprofits in that it just doesn't have the capacity to do as much as other large name volunteer management systems can.

Overall: We enjoyed how simple and easy using this system was for our volunteers and other departments in the office!

Pros: I like that it emails the participants for me and sends out reminders. It is easy to use and very convenient.

Cons: I do not like having to enter all the email addresses. I wish there was a way to transfer them from my contacts, or I wish I was aware of it.

Pros: I like that I can customize each sign up for a different goal. I can create sign ups for classes, RSVP's, dinners- it has many uses.

Cons: Occasionally, it is difficult to make changes to sign ups. The editing functions seem to have several steps to complete.

Pros: I am in charge of staffing multi-day sales with volunteers about 15 times a year. I can contact all my potential volunteers with one click of a button. I can staff the sales with time slots of any duration. The program reminds my volunteers two days before of the time they signed up for. It allows me to communicate with all the volunteers without having to worry about incorrect emails or bounces. I ADORE this software!

Cons: It took me some time to figure out exactly how to create the time slots. It is a little confusing figuring out the difference between "Dates and Times" and time slots and how they interact. I tend to just reproduce previous

Overall: Ease of managing a large number of volunteers across a variety of events. Effortless reminders of volunteers. Single location for all volunteers to get information.
