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: 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: 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 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.

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!

Camellia,
Our free product is great for creators that are managing basic events. For organizations that are running several events or manage many volunteers, our Pro levels offer additional functionality including volunteer hours reporting, email tracking, custom themes, No Ads on sign ups and emails sent from our site, multiple administrators, and customized automatic confirmation emails and reminders. These are just a few of a long list of functionality. Our support team is available to assist you directly 7 days a week, and we are happy to evaluate the best use of Pro features for your particular needs. Let us know if we can help you by emailing support@signupgenius.com.

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.

I use signup genius for all of our churches events and love it.

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.

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: 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!!

Pros: Ease of use

Cons: Sometimes we have multiple locations but the same times and we have to have different entries. Some groups get upset when I turn it so they can only sign up for 1 slot per time when they want to sign up several people - that has burned us in the past so I always set it to 1 signup per slotted time.

Overall: Love SignUp Genius it is easy to use. Wish there were some different features, but it gets the job done - sometimes you just have to be creative.

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.

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).

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: 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.

This fee is noted as a convenience fee when signing up for items on your sign up. There are no additional fees charged to the creator of the sign up/organizer of the event.

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.

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

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.

It has made my PTSA organizing work a lot easier. A great toll.

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.

Pros: I like that I can choose different dates for different tasks. You can customize if the person needs to leave you comment. Then it will email them (in the specific time you choose) to let them know what they signed up for. Seriously great product. Have used the free version for both school PTO, room-mom functions and personal signups. Oh and you can customize your image if you want as well. That is perfect for others to easily identify the signup.

Cons: I really don't have any cons. What we have needed it for, it has been perfect.

Overall: We are a non-profit, all volunteer, computer club with about 3700 members. We use Signup Genius to schedule the use of our media conversion equipment. Seven sign ups are currently being used.

Signup Genius has answered our call. All our signups were done on paper until now.

Great way to organize parties.

Pros: I love that you can require different fields for different needs, helping relay the information that your volunteers need to know. I also really like the admin access and ability to make changes and communicate through the site.

Cons: It can be really cumbersome to create a sign-up if it doesn't completely fit into one of the few categories available. Also, I think that the paid features aren't really enough to convince me to pay for it rather than just make do with the free features.

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.

Pros: I can easily make sign ups for parent conferences, helpers, and even lists for taking care of the class pet.

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.

Overall: It's easy to set up sign ups for conferences and helpers.

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: 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: 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.

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

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.

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: 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.

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.

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.

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.

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: 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. I think people avoided the emails because of the burden of reading and scrolling through the list to see who was supplying what!

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.

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

End user signing up for volunteer shifts for a non-profit - VERY EASY

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. When shifts are filled, it lists how many were available and now full so you know there is no more help needed at that time. Automation of sign-ups helps keep track of things simply.

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: 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: 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.

Cons: When trying to cancel something I signed up for, it's very confusing to have to choose from three different options in regard to HOW I signed up to begin with. Maybe SignUpGenius could develop something that remembers an email and if the person signed up via an individual account or a group/business account.

Overall: SignUpGenius helps me volunteer in my community, without having to jump through hoops while working in order to sign up for the opportunities

Cons: the only real con is how some of the sign up screens are organized. after a while you get used to it, but it take a little bit of time to figure out exactly how you want to see the sign up and what will work best. it would be nice to be able to preview a little bit easier on the free version.

Pros: SUG provides a simple solution for a simple problem - how to have an easy unified platform for multiple users to sign up or provide some basic information. The solution isn't complex because it doesn't have to be - users sign on to provide the information, or even avoid the sign on and type in your response anyway. Overall, pretty handy and gets the job done.

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!

So many different uses!

Pros: It is so helpful in having volunteers pick their own time to sign up, rather than me scheduling them. Also, volunteers can see how many helpers are needed for a specific time or event and sign up where most needed.

Cons: This product can also be used to have attendees sign up for an event, not just volunteers; however, if the event requires a payment, SignUpGenius cannot do that.

Recommendations to other buyers: Try it, you'll like it. If it doesn't work for you, try something else next time. We have used it for non-paying events, where we just need to know how many are attending and have used it for recruiting over 100 volunteers for 2 and 3 day events in addition to monthly events.

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: Ease of signing up and reminders about sign-up times - it has so many great customizable options to get exactly what you need.

Cons: I can't think of anything that I don't like about this software. PTA's in our area use this effectively to get event participation and volunteers.

Overall: There are many benefits as an event organizer, volunteer, parent... the software takes care of data collection and reminders.
