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!

Pros: It's ease of use. Following the steps layed out for you and the free templates available you can make beautiful and professional looking sign ups for anything.

Cons: I would like to allow people signing up to be able to upload documents such as resumes. Also that you only get one free custom template with the least expensive plan.

Overall: Great looking sign ups with no stress.

Pros: Ease of use, ability to coordinate multiple volunteer positions and times as well as days, automatically reminds volunteers 2 days before event.

Cons: Sometimes it is difficult to understand the way slots need to edited, inability to email specific volunteers individually. Only collects money through pay pal and not other options also charges a fee for collection of payment on top of pay pal fees, not a good option for non-profits!

Overall: Ability to organize multiple volunteers for small and large events, automatically reminds volunteers and you can email specific groups. However, you have to upgrade to pro to send links and documents which I do not like.

Pros: I can pop in whatever I need, whether it's scheduling conferences or having people sign up for participating in a group get-together. It truly is my go-to tool for simplifying any type of sign-up.

Cons: When I'm scheduling something pretty big, it's sometimes time-consuming to put in all of the information. However, the organization it gives is worth the effort to me.

Easy to use and a great tool for our events.

Pros: Many choices to use and allows for a variety of time slots. We use for events and consultations with outside vendors and it's worked great.

Cons: Sometimes have trouble with customizing the sign-ups but that could be user error. Mainly have to remember how to use the time slot customization. I think I've completed everything and it doesn't move to the next step.

Overall: Ease of setting of the sign-up and ease of employees signing up for events.

Pros: That I can add multiple people to the signup and then to multiple sin-ups. I like that the software notifies me that the emails were sent out and that people sign up.

Cons: I don't like that I can't have more than one group on a sign- up. I have multiple group that were setup before that I send things to and then the new group that I sent things too but for some things they can't be combined

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.

THE Best!!!- Our sign ups used to be a nightmare!

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!

Cons: Sometimes I have trouble figuring out how to group the times, so I end up going back and forth between the date/time tabs to figure it out.

Pros: The flexibility in creating a sign up, for example: repeated dates and times, time intervals. Makes it so easy to create the essential document.

Cons: It was a little difficult to import emails. I wish there was some way it could just recognize my pre-existing group instead of selecting each email individually.

Cons: not always understandable what your setting up .. i.e. sign-up slots; sometimes you have to do the basic and see how it looks to see if that is what you were expecting. Maybe a preview screen for each step and then you would see if you were going in the right direction.

Pros: I like it the most that people can easily see who signed up for what, so I don't have to communicate among the volunteers and participants.

Cons: The limitation on # of emails/messages one can send out per day/month. As a school PTSA leader, I need to organize many volunteering events every week/month. With a 500 volunteers pool, I run out of # of invites/messages I can send out very quickly.

Cons: At first I hand entered all of my emails. That took forever. Now I just copy and paste the sign up address to an email and all of my parents get the information instantly. It took a while to work my way through the choices. Now I understand the nuances much better and it's easier to use.

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.

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

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.

Vendor Response

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 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.

Comments: SignUpGenius has really helped us think outside the box for our preschool. Having a simple platform for parents to sign up for things has made it easier to plan and ask for help. Seriously, we didn't have a parent association until I realized SignUpGenius could help me with that. Now, when I send out our needs for the year, every slot is filled within 24 hours. I couldn't do that without SignUpGenius. We also use it more for a donation platform. We'll adopt families for the Holidays or have a potluck and everyone can get involved without much overview from me. I love it!

Pros: Makes me look professional and extremely organized with only a few minutes of effort.

Cons: I have found not one thing that I don't like.

Overall: We serve the 8th largest school district in the United States, Hillsborough County, with our powerful Student Presentations that deal with youth substance abuse.

Our team of volunteers consists of many roles, and before I found SignUpGenius I struggled as the Chapter Coordinator to keep everyone straight, on time, and in the right place for the right role. This software has turned us from a word document organizing system to a very efficient and professional system that sends reminders and other notifications to members with ease.

Thank you SignUpGenius for helping us stop the epidemic of youth substance abuse with a sense of organization and peace of mind that we never had before your software.

Recommendations to other buyers: Have your volunteers sign up right up front.

Comments: Signup genius is great if you need to get a lot of people scheduled for an event. You can see the updates quickly and it gives the person who signs up a sense of urgency since they can see how spots are filling up. Great software!

Pros: It is easy to track appointment times and availability.

Overall: SignUpGenius has made it so much easier for our school to manage volunteers for large and small events. Conference signups are more convenient for teachers and parents!

The workflow to create a new signup is easy to follow. I love that we can share the signup page just be sending out a link from our messaging platform, but it's also easy to upload email addresses and organize them by groups right from the SignUpGenius site.

We use the ad-supported plan, and that has been sufficient for our needs.

Pros: It helps our parents sign up for events without having to email the staff/

Cons: Sometimes it can be confusing, but for the most part it is an extremely important tool for our events.

Overall: Betsy helped me with a sign up that I was having great difficulty with. She responded quickly to all my emails, and always offered a very thorough answer. She was great!

Pros: It's great that everyone is familiar with it and feels comfortable using it. I received great support when I had a complex correction to make for multiple days (the entire school year!).

Overall: I created a Sign Up for lunch volunteers for our school for the entire year. Once we realized we needed fewer volunteers per day, I needed help figuring out how to either reduce the number of slots or at least change the extra slot to "N/A." Sign Up Genius support was super helpful and responsive. They made my task much easier. Thank you!!

Thank you for this GREAT software!

Pros: The tool does all the work, just set it up and let it take care of itself, it even sends reminders for you!

Cons: The adds are quite annoying.

Overall: This has saved us so much time ! Amazing, easy to use, and super practical
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you !

Recommendations to other buyers: try it on a test group before your 1st try. Dont be afraid to try the different templates and have fun setting it up. The first few times will take you longer but after that you will become a pro because it's so easy !

Comments: I've been organizing my daughter's sporting events for over 12 years and SignUpGenius is by far the best tool I've found (I've tried them all). I'll be using it for the rest of my "team parent" career (2 years left in her college career).

Creating custom invitations is extremely intuitive. The options for sending initial invitations and followup reminders are easy to use. The database of contacts is simple and useful. The tracking system for responses is awesome. I've received lots of positive feedback from team families!

The technical support is extremely helpful . Answers to questions are not only accurate, but they take the time to explain the best way to configure your invitations. They also encourage follow up questions. Maybe most satisfying of all, the response time is always quick!

Pros: Great administrative side of things.
Wonderful templates to choose from.
Lots of choices in design and volunteer needs.
Versatility in communication tools.

Cons: I have not found anything to date that I have not LOVED!

Overall: Our chapter continues to grow and reach more and more students so I knew I had to find a better way to schedule and track volunteers. I did a Google search, and I quickly found SignUpGenius, and I am THRILLED that I did! Our volunteers love the ease with which they can sign up, they like the reminders a couple days before about their volunteer task, and they like that they can "swap shifts" as needed.

Now we can double our reach this school year and help stop this epidemic of youth substance abuse and look even more organized than ever before thanks to SignUpGenius.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't continue to look around - sign up today for SighUpGenius and make the volunteer side of your efforts effortless!

Pros: There are good features available to a school.

Cons: I have had to spend longer than I would have liked learning how to set up parent/teacher conferences - I did follow the instructions but got hung up on the slots portion - tried to add a time slot for each teacher (30 teachers) instead of adding several teachers to one time slot because the instructions seemed vague.

Overall: Switched from Bring It to Sign Up Genius. It has been a little bit difficult to set up Parent/Teacher conferences but the Customer Support has been wonderful (thank you Steven Borders). Once Steven helped me, it has been a great program to use!

Pros: Helps save time. Sign-ups can be duplicated for ease of use. Information can be easily downloaded into Excel for organizing. Communication is quick and easy. Changes to multiple questions can be made at the same time. People can sign up without signing in. A better designed product than any other out there.

Overall: We are a non-profit opera league which hosts dinners, gatherings, education events and coordinates volunteers for those and other activities during the opera season. Sign-up Genius has helped reduce the time it used to take me to generate all the lists I needed to hand out to our various members, which is great since none of us are getting paid! Also, the customer service has been unbelievable. I sent in a question on a Sunday and got a response within minutes after I submitted it online! I have already recommended this service to several others and will continue to do so.

Swift, friendly customer support!!!

Comments: I was a classroom parent for my daughter's 2nd grade classroom this past year. There were a point during the year when it was important for me to send out a series of SignUp Genius requests - all with the same classroom title - I was having a tough time trying to modify this element after having created our second sign up, and feared that I had wasted quite a bit of time/would have to start from scratch. A quick inquiry to Customer Support was extremely helpful - they were able to assist me with my quandry, and everything worked beautifully from then on in...

Thank you, Sign Up Genius!

Comments: I've been using this for a few months for signups for my Yoga classes, and have been relatively happy with it. I have some quibbles - relentless ads, not particularly intuitive for some functions, multiple steps required for simple tasks, etc.

But today, when I logged on to see my roster for my class tonight, the site is sending an error code. I've tried multiple ways to get into it, but to no avail. The best I got was a "site maintenance" announcement with August dates on it. There's not even a way to get to customer service for help, as I relied upon being able to access the site and didn't record a phone number anywhere else. As I'm paying for this, I'm NOT happy right now.

Comments: My kids attend different schools, but both schools use sign-up genius. It is very convenient to be able to use one log-in but display the correct student name. Plus, I can coordinate schedules and commitments between the two schools. Now, if I could just get all of my charitable organizations to use...

Comments: Sign up genius has been a huge strength to our children's ministry as we recruit Sunday School volunteers for the summer months, in the midst of families' busy vacation schedules. It helps to have one place for potential volunteers to go to see the specific needs on specific days, and an easy way for them to sign up. It also helps our staff to keep all of the info and schedules organized in one place. In addition, the customer service has been outstanding!

Comments: Pros Sign Up Genius:
~ Easy to recieve and use
~ Quick directions, easy to remember when logging back in
~ Great (and timely) reminders
~ Can send individualized/group e-mails to volunteers with updates and information
~ MULTIPLE groups can use... you only have one login to remember (currently I am receiving SignUpGenius for a HS band parent group, a tennis league, and not-for-profit volunteer group, and a little league baseball team. All one login - account stays "live" in perpetuity (until I ask to be removed).

Cons:
~ Not enough of the groups I'm in utilize this! I'm worn out on group e-mails with reply all answers.

Pros: We use online sign-up sheets for a volunteer fire department with over 100 firefighters assigned to five different stations. Most of us have full-time jobs outside of being firefighters, so finding a way to coordinate activities in a fair and consistent way was time consuming and quite challenging. Online sign-up sheets from SignUpGenius streamlined our process, while making it very easy for our firefighters to use. We post a sign-up sheet electronically ,and it is instantly available to everyone. At the same time, one person can manage the sheets remotely, so it eliminated the need for paper sheets and multiple trips to stations to post, review, and collect those sheets.

Cons: What's not to like about the capabilities of this way of doing online sign-up sheets? The creators of Sign Up Genius built a product that takes a complicated process and makes it a smooth operation. It is so easy to use that there is seldom a need to ask for help. Then the friendly folks at Sign Up Genius are lightning fast to response on the rare occasions when you need help.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are looking for a way to simplify sign-up sheets, then you simply must take a look at SignUpGenius. There may be other providers of this service, but it would be a cold day in Minnesota before you will find one that stands up to the ease of use and functionality of SignUpGenius!

It's a good service to simplify signing up.
