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.

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!

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: SignUpGenius is a great tool for coordinating volunteers. As a free software, it's great and incredibly useful. It comes with many templates and features. It takes some time to figure out how to make your sign-up look like you want it to, but then you are good to go.

One of the great features of SignUpGenius is that is will email your volunteers in advance to remind them of their commitment. This is great because it takes following-up with and reminding volunteers off your plate and does that for you!

Cons: It does take a little time to figure it out at first. You can't sign-on for your first time and expect to have a sign-up ready to go in minutes.

Also, some people speak of this as a lifesaver or game-changer when it comes to getting volunteers. That hasn't been my experience. It makes organizing volunteers and coordinating them easier, but it isn't going to bring them in as easily as some people might claim.

Overall: We use SignUpGenius to organize and coordinate volunteers. Volunteers can click on the link and are taken to a form where they can sign-up for a time slot or to bring something to an event. They'll also be able to see what other volunteers have sign-up for, which is very helpful!

Pros: Several free layouts to use, and so many options!! You can also upload your own photo, so it looks more 'personalized', even without paying more (we just use the free option!) . Easy to customize for your specific event/sign up. And it's so quick and easy to get your site out to everyone. You can either email directly from your sign up (by entering email addresses) or you can just copy/paste the URL and make it public if you want to reach a wider audience! And on an Administrative side-- there are tools, and reports and graphs. You can see how many people have viewed your sign up, lists that can be printed... it is very comprehensive!

Cons: I don't really have any complaints... it does all that we need it to do!

Overall: I use SignUpGenius mainly for school events. I am on our school's PFC/PTA, so we send out A LOT of requests for sign up help. We have many events each school year, and the Genius is the way to go to get things organized. It's just really easy for volunteers to use- they can easily see what is needed, sign up for it...DONE! And for me, and the people creating sign ups, it is just so easy. I can get email notifications when a new volunteer has signed up, I can email people straight from the site, it's an easy way to manage an event.

I use sign up genius every year for conference sign ups! My parents love it as much as I do!

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!

Vendor Response

by SignUpGenius on September 05, 2017

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.

Pros: I like that when other users respond, SignUp Genius updates and every other invitee can also see the updates. For example, when sending out RSVPs, everyone has the ability to see everyone else who has RSVP'd. It's a very easy app for taking polls for certain time slots. It is also great if you need just a quick one question response or a detailed, multi-step poll. As a user, I appreciate that it is quick and easily shows up in my inbox. Additionally, I don't receive spam messages from them after taking a survey!! This is so important. I didn't sign up for promo messages, so I don't want to receive them automatically. This program finally gets it. Finally, the ability to send out reminders is a great function. It's easy to set up ahead of time for the SignUp creator. I also love that it sends the event to my calendar!! It's just great for both ends of the SignUp request... I would highly recommend.

Cons: I don't have too many complaints, except that sometimes the visibility is limited on the mobile app. Really, I highly recommend this software and can't think of too many negatives haha.

Overall: My graduate school coordinator uses this for everything from orientation times to graduate assistant assignments to signing up for classes. Our 100 person program is able to exist thanks to SignUpGenius. I can't think of a better program that could accomplish the wide range of possibilities that this can.

I LOVE SIGNUPGENIUS! It has saved me so much time and makes organizing events easier.

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.

Of course I like this

Pros: It's great at what it is for - doesn't everyone know this already? If you haven't used SignUpGenius before then I don't know where you have been. This seems like such a common software to me. I like best the automatic email reminders it sends when you are signed up for something.

Cons: If I had signed up for a shift, but now cannot do it and I need to look for a replacement, it would be cool if I could email other people through the software to reach out and find someone to fill my spot. I guess what I like least is that it does not have this capability.

Overall: Great! Intuitive, simple, makes sense, and sends automatic reminders.

Vendor Response

by SignUpGenius on November 19, 2018

Thank you for your review, Christina. We are happy to hear how the site has been helpful for you.

We offer the ability for participants to swap slots with one another. To initiate a swap, a user must have an account with SignUpGenius. This simply means that if a user would like to swap with another user, they register at SignUpGenius with the same email they used to sign up for their item¿ and then they can initiate the swap. Any other users with emails in the system (regardless of whether or not they have created an account) will be available to consider swapping with the person who makes the request.

Once another user accepts a swap request, the change is made automatically and if anyone else tries to respond to the request, they will see that a swap has already been updated.

If you have questions, please contact our support team: http://www.signupgenius.com/help

Pros: The ease and user friendliness of this tool is impressive. The notifications it gives to participants makes life so much easier, and automated. Many people are familiar with it because local schools use it extensively. Clients coming to classes can pay, and annotate their reserved places. It makes it easy to cancel as well, which cuts back on no shows from people who don't like to talk live in that regard.

Cons: I have no issues but would suggest the interface be modernized somewhat, with a few more customizing options as far as visuals.

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

by SignUpGenius on May 14, 2018

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: 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.

Thank you for your excellent review! If a sign up creator sends you a sign up link via their personal email or if you find a sign up link on a website or social media posting, you can click the sign up link to sign up. It is not necessary to log in to your SignUpGenius account first. After you submit your sign up choices, you can enter your name and email address on the next page. These items will sync to your SignUpGenius account.

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.

Overall: I created a Sign Up for lunch volunteers for our school for the entire year.

Sign Up Genius support was super helpful and responsive. They made my task much easier. Thank you!!

Pros: I love the fact that SignUp Genius eliminates the need for dozens of emails, just to figure out who is bringing what. It's used so widely that even the most tech-averse parents seem to be able to figure out how to volunteer to work a booth or bring something!!

Cons: It can be a little labor-intensive to create a signup sheet - sometimes you have to be a little creative to make it work for your particular need. And the signup sheets can be LONG - for my son's graduation, they had three days of activities and multiple tasks for each activity. It seemed to go on forever, and I actually signed up for the wrong day initially, as it was hard to keep track of when the days switched.

Overall: My favorite thing about SignUp Genius is that it makes people accountable - once they've signed up, it's there for all to see!!

Pros: The software makes collaborating on projects and events so easy! We use this often for parents to sign up to bring items to classroom or after school activities and events, or sign up for shift coverages. It reduces duplicated efforts and we can easily be sure everything needed is covered. Everybody can see what is needed, and who is doing it - and it is so easy to use! You create the survey or list and simply send an email to everyone involved, and they in turn follow a link to sign up. And you even get reminders emailed to you once you have signed up!

Cons: The only problem I have experienced is when I "lose" the link to sign up for something. Probably user issue, but sometimes I cannot find the sign up form when I try to search in the program for it.

Pros: It's easy to start using and easy for people to sign up, which is a big deal...otherwise people get frustrated and stop the process midstream. Lots of templates to choose from. Free service still gets you a lot. Love the messaging abilities to all of your signees.

Cons: Their ads are very intrusive...although I understand this is purposeful as they are looking to have you upgrade to remove the ads. Also, you have to submit any custom photo and wait until it's approved before proceeding. They don't give you the dimensions for your custom pictures, nor allow you to resize them.

Overall: Best and easiest way to get large groups signed up for events/potlucks.

Vendor Response

by SignUpGenius on July 11, 2018

Hi, April. Thank you for your feedback. It may be helpful to know that you do not have to wait for your image to be approved to continue creating your sign up. After you select your theme and upload your custom image, click "continue" at the bottom of the page to continue creating your sign up. Once your image is approved, it will replace the stock picture you see in the top left corner of the theme.

To upload the custom image/logo, please use a JPG, GIF, or PNG image. The image needs to be under 1 mb in size when uploaded, so you may need to re-size the image prior to uploading if you have a high-resolution image. All images will be re-sized to 350 pixels wide to fit on your sign up page. If you are using a transparent GIF or PNG, you should size your image at 325 pixels wide and 325 pixels long or less so that it will not have to be manipulated by our system.

Pros: This was a very free and very easy app to use and navigate through to orchestrate sign ups for our volunteer team. You just put in the roles you need and how many people and send it out to your volunteers to sign themselves up. It was very user friendly and a great and easy way to set up a sign up from your church potluck to a charity event with lots of different roles.

Cons: It depends on people actually signing up. It is hard to track down people to sign up for shifts. You have to constantly keep it in front of their face or incentivize it. This isn't the apps fault, but it is something to think about if your people are the kind of people to handle that and take ownership of their schedules.

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.

Pros: There are many options in Sign up Genius for types of event sign ups - even in the free version. It comes in handy organizing many people with food, responsibilities, etc. There are features that make categorize by items or jobs or by time. I also like the customization feature to make the sign up aesthetically appropriate for the event. People can sign up without creating an account.

Cons: It can be confusing and cumbersome when new to the interface. It can be convenient to sign up w/o making an account but you have to go through multiple steps if you do have an account but forget to sign in before signing up for an event. Sometimes the logging in doesn't make sense.

Overall: Good. It will continue to be my go-to when I only need a sign up form.

Pros: I often use this software for volunteer management for my church and a non-profit arts group that I support This software takes zero knowledge to use effectively. Every part of creating a sign-up for an event is intuitive. This makes planning a snap. It even helps me plan better events by listing out specific tasks for my volunteers.

Cons: I don't like the fact that you must add new tasks to the sign-up sheet in groups of five. I wish that it were possible to just add and delete at will.

Overall: This software is great for organizing groups. It ensures that your events are staffed with volunteers and that you will not spend hours wrangling confirmations from your volunteers. At each event, it is always clear who is to do what. This helps keep all the feather unruffled. Recommended.

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: This product makes it very easy for parents (because I am a teacher) to signup for conferences and meetings. The product is colorful and easy to read. Most importantly, it allows you to block out times and make a schedule with ease.

Cons: My concerns with this software are in regard to changing and rearranging times. It is not that easy to do. Additionally, the reminder email that goes to the parent (or the person who signed up) has the ending time in the subject line of the email, which means many parents come at the ending time, not the beginning time.

Overall: We have been using Sign-Up Genius for 4 years at my school and we have not found anything better. For a small school and our needs, and regardless of a few little glitches, the product does work quite well.

Pros: I am an introvert and calling people to remind them things is like death by a thousand awkward, panicky, sweaty palmed-phone calls. I literally can't listen to the song that I set as my ringtone because it stresses me out thinking it might be someone calling. Enter SignUpGenius, which allows me to save all my people energy for the actual event. It is quick and easy to set up, I haven't run into any configuration I haven't been able to set up. I like being able to invite people directly or just include a link in an e-blast or online newsletter. I love that you can set auto-reminders. I love that you can set it so that everyone can see what others have committed to (or not). I don't have to be the master list keeper unless I want to.

Cons: I can literally think of no cons. Some of their backgrounds are goofy but there are enough good ones you don't have to worry.

Overall: Solid. Use for business, school, church, and social gatherings. No more reminder phone calls or collecting clipboards or typing up lists. Just do it.

Pros: I direct and produce several musicals throughout the school year. Parent volunteers are essential to getting everything completed in a timely manner without going crazy! Signup Genius allows me to create events where parents can come to volunteer, and parents can manage their volunteer schedule for each production. The basic (free) version comes with enough features that it is easy to use and get everything done.

Cons: Above the free version are some paid versions that I don't think are incredibly necessary, but could be used for larger groups perhaps. I also do not love the logo. It doesn't look as professional as I would like, but again its a free service so no complaints!

Comments: SignUpGenius covers a large area of specific needs for businesses and is one of the best options when it comes to event organizing.

Pros: Organizing and managing events can be a stressful task. An event can be made or broken on the applications it uses to set up and run an event. Luckily SignUpGenius provides one of the best and most reliable tools for events on the market. From quick set up to strong applications for keeping track of attendees and keeping them informed, SignUpGenius is the go-to for small and large businesses. The platform offers a Basic (Free) option and several pay options, each with a myriad of offerings that enhance organizing events.

Cons: SignUpGenius has very few downsides. While the Basic (Free) option covers the basics, some might balk at paying a monthly fee for certain add-ons.

Pros: The product is extremely easy to create and post an event as well as managing the volunteers that sign up for the event.

Cons: We have noted no issues with the product to date and have nothing negative to critique or comment about.

Overall: The organization has been utilizing SignUpGenius for around two years now. Since this time we have had 3 employees who have been assigned as our volunteer manager for our non-profit. At one point there was no task turnover of this position and the newly assigned employee was given the task to recruit volunteers for an upcoming event by posting/advertising the event on SignUpGenius. With no experience in utilizing the product the newly assigned volunteer manager was able to creat the event and have it posted within 30minutes. The employee was able to creat the event, time frames that vounteers were needed and indivual positions that needed to be filled by the volunteers. The new volunteer manager is by no means experienced in the "IT World" and has had problems effectively utilizing some MS Office programs, but SignUpGenius is exceptionally user friendly and an extremely beneficial program for event management. HIghly recommend its use.

Pros: When I was in university I had classes and clubs that required certain meetings, exam objections or psychology experiments.

We chose the available slot and it also sent an email for a reminder. I still use it and it is still time saving and practical.

Cons: Since this is an easy to use software, there could be more featured added to make other everyday tasks easy as well!

Overall: Signing up to any task or event is a pleasant experience with this software. I recommend it.

Pros: SignUpGenius is incredible useful when it come to the life of our church. We are able to use it for all of out events, retreats, volunteers, and more. It gives us great access to info that lets us know how many people will becoming, how many volunteers we will have or still need, and we can communicate with all of them.

Pros:

-Easy and fast to create a sign up with many parameters

- Ability to tie into accepting payments or giving

- The process is easy for our members

- Great ability to communicate with the group and keep them updated

- Ability to see where we are lacking or need more signups or volunteers

Cons: The only con I have had is it is hard to get our older members to integrate into using it. Not really a fault of the company but it a difficulty. Not sure there is a way for the company to somehow be more senior friendly.

Overall: This is a must have tool for any church or business that has to rely on a force of volunteers or people attending their events. It has helped me rest assure giving me some idea of how many people will attend and how many will be helping. It sure beats replying to a generic email.

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

It is also easy to then see where the gaps are!

Cons: It is difficult to go through all the steps sometimes. There are a lot of steps- background, designs, items, quantity, options, and emailing out.

Thank you for the great review! Users are only required to enter a name when they sign up. The email address is always requested because most users prefer to receive a reminder of their commitment. However, the email address is not required unless the creator of the sign up has required the email address. We always give users the option to create an account if they wish to do so, but it is not required. If you have any questions, please contact our Support Team. We will be happy to help!

For busy moms trying to balance all the school things this is a necessity. Our school now uses it for everything from volunteering in the library, Halloween party shifts and what dish you are going to make for the school pot luck.

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.

This has been a life saver for us!

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!

This is an amazing tool.

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.

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: My son's School District uses this product to have parents sign up for certain volunteer functions. It couldn't be easier. You get an email and reply accordingly. It saves time and energy as it eliminates the need for a series of emails amongst parents.

Cons: I can't find a reason to dislike this product, at least in the School District context. I guess it would be nice to see it utilized in other settings as well.

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: I use sign up genius for volunteer signups, and I love that Signup Genius allows you set up reminders for when it's time for your volunteers to come in ahead of time. Just another thing I don't have to put on my to-do list. It automatically sends out that reminder email and I don't have to worry about it.

Cons: Because I'm mainly the graphic designer, I wish the sign ups looked more modern and easy on the eyes, but that's just a little something.

I also use it for the Church because there is a lot of people in the congregation and sending out volunteer sheets would be time consuming and not productive, plus a waste of paper.

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.

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.

Cons: While the interface is clean and easy, it could be streamlined and the ability to start from a previously used signup would be useful.

Pros: SignUp Genius allows users to easily create basic sign up sheets (for meetings, potlucks, volunteer opportunities, etc). Users can easily see which slots are empty and which are in need of sign ups.

Cons: It is a bit clunky to use, and it does not have the most modern-looking interface. For example, if a user wanted to add more than a 5 or so time slots, they would have to manually add each individual slot, which can be time consuming. Additionally, users are unable to duplicate time slots, so you have to select the hour, minute, and AM/PM for each start and end time from a drop down menu. All of these things are workable, but they take a bit of extra time. Additionally, the wallpapers/backgrounds are simplistic and slightly dated.

Overall: It is very functional for simple forms, but folks who are looking for a very sophisticated interface or a method of creating quick but complex forms should look elsewhere.

No more paper sign up sheets!

Pros: SignUp Genius allows you to set a list of what you need - whether it's volunteers to work a booth, or donations for a bake sale, or supplies for a project - and allows people to easily sign up for what they are able to do/bring/contribute. It makes it incredibly easy to see what you still need, sends reminders to people about their commitment, and adds in a level of accountability and social pressure because everyone can see who signed up for what.

Cons: The interface isn't that pretty, that's literally the only drawback.

Overall: SignUp Genius has completely changed how we do sign ups for things like volunteering, potlucks, events, etc. It has made it so much easier to organize any kind of volunteer activity or project.

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: 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.

Pros: It is a streamlined way to see all volunteer shifts available and easy/intuitive for how to sign up for the shift(s) of choice.

Cons: I have not been an administrator of this tool so not sure if it is easy to load the shifts into the program. I have not found any type of con as an end-user.

Pros: Signup Genius is incredibly user friendly. There are tons of great templates in the free version. There is an excellent Help Section. If you can't find the answer you need you can email the question. They are always responsive and use humor in the response. It allows you to customize your signup in significant detail if need be, it sends out reminders, and notifies you immediately if someone signs up or changes their sign up.

Cons: I really can't say anything bad about this software.

Overall: We use this to sign up volunteers and provide details about opportunities. We also use the link to post on different sites.

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: 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.

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.

Pros: We constantly use SignUp Genius to organize events both at school and for club activities. The platform is extremely user friendly and allows individuals to create profiles and participate in events without much hassle.

Cons: When receiving email notifications from the platform it is a little confusing at first. Be sure to inform participants to keep an eye out and know that the communications are not junk email.

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.

Pros: I love that SignUpGenius makes it super simple to set up parent/teacher conferences. It is so much easier to coordinate with 25+ parents when I can set my times and they can tap right into their preferred time.

Cons: At first, it wasn't clear that the default allows more than one person to sign up for the same spot UNLESS you click on the setting to make it available to only one person! After figuring it out, super easy!

Pros: Easy of use

Cons: Would appreciate more options for creating events. For example if I have several appointment times available in the same day, I would like to be able to create all of them at the same time without having to go to a different screen to type in every different appointment time.

Overall: Signupgenius is easy to use and has been a real time saver for me. Whether I am providing opportunities for students to select advising times or offering sign up opportunities for the many workshops I conduct, my attendance records are kept without my interference. I also really appreciate the report functions available for FREE!

Recommendations to other buyers: Thanks for making this easier for participants to sign in.

Pros: This is a slick and easy to use way to coordinate participation in events or delegate tasks. The ability to set a number of slots available adds to the overall functionality. Much easier than trying to maintain a shared document or spreadsheet.

Cons: The visual design is not the prettiest so the fonts and wallpaper are not particularly eye catching. However, it does provide function over form.
