"Great free sign-up system for basic appointments "

What do you like best?

I can set it where only the users can only see their own name and filled spots are just marked "already filled". I can keep the same perpetual link and just add or remove dates over time, so I don't have to redo it each month (in my case, I don't need people to sign up for separate events)

What do you dislike?

There is a recurrent date/time feature and that's useful, but when it comes to removing dates and times, it's kind of a pain to get to them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider how much info you need from someone signing up. If you only need a name and for them to type in an email address or phone number, this works great. It's not a complex system that allows days, times and also pre-programmed options for them to choose from (food to bring, a booth that needs to be staffed, etc.)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Although we have a scheduling system in our learning center for tutoring and coaching appointments, it is not suitable for students to be able to book their own intake appointment because they are so short and our scheduling system allows only 1 set appointment duration. I use Sign-Up Genius as a free and easy way for new students to just follow a link and put their name in a time for their intake appointment.

"Sign Up Genius and Volunteer Recruitment"

What do you like best?

Easy to use, organized and efficient for both us (the administrators) and the users (our volunteers). Allows us to keep in contact with our interested volunteers easily and allows them a feeling of ownership over what roles they select for particular events.

What do you dislike?

Unable to export emails from past sign up lists. This would be very helpful when adding volunteers to new sign ups. Sometimes emails can go into volunteers spam folders, but this may be fixed by just having them change their email preferences.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great software that will help to keep you organized. We use the free version, which meets our needs. Very easy for all of our volunteers, young and old, to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sign up genius allows us to easily recruit and manage volunteers. We rely on volunteers for run many of our programs, and Signupgenius allows us to easily organize volunteer roles and allow people to sign up for whatever jobs most interest them. It also allows us to help keep track of our volunteers hours and communicate with people who have signed up.

It is also very helpful that we are able to access past signups from previous years and can easily duplicate them. This saves us time and insures that we are keeping the same roles from years to year which our volunteers appreciate.

By having having the singup be a live webpage, rather then an individual account, multiple staff can keep track of volunteer recruitment for a single event!

What Volunteer Management solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Really useful tool"

What do you like best?

I like that it has multiple uses.

You can use it to schedule multiple meetings for available time slots. We use this to register for school each new year. The registrar inputs a ton of 15 minute time slots and then you're able to sign up to meet with her.

You can use it to sign up to volunteer in time slots.

You can use it to sign up to bring items.

You can use it to request money for items, like a fundraiser.

You can use it to add events to your calendars.

What do you dislike?

There's a small problem with the calendar syncing and the time zones. When you sign up on the desktop version the time zone is correct but when you look at the sign up summaries it lists the sign up times in the wrong time zone. That past several times I've sent or received sign ups, it has been necessary to double check the times that you're signing up for vs what it may sync to your calendar because the time zones are off.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make notes about the time zones when sending the requests. It can be confusing if you're not aware of the problem.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As an assistant in a small preschool we rely on a lot of volunteers - time, money, donations, etc. This platform is a great way to reach many people with one step and helps to keep track of items/hours for events. I also volunteer as a room mom at my child's kindergarten. We use the sign up genius all the time. My daughter's teacher will use it to request items for various projects in the classroom. We also used it to request party supplies for our Christmas party.

"This program makes it easier for events in every area of life!"

What do you like best?

SignUp Genius allows us to create multiple sign up forms and organize numerous groups of people in one easy place.

What do you dislike?

The interface takes a little bit to get used to. At first, it can be a little confusing to edit and schedule multiple time blocks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take time to practice with SignUpGenius in house before using it. Your clients/end users may not like the ads. In addition, there are numerous add ons, but they cost a little bit of money, such as being able to take payment. These do NOT come with a free subscription.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With a fast paced, large organization, we have to have a place that makes it easy to sign up for multiple events. We have realized the benefit of quick notifications when people sign up. In addition, reminders can be set up to notify people when their sign up time is approaching. Next, when multiple leaders are managing an event, we are able to transfer ownership of the sign up to multiple leaders or to an individual leader altogether.

"Sign Up Genius is Easy to Use!"

What do you like best?

Sign Up Genius is easy to use. My favorite part of Sign Up Genius is that you can try it once for free (or use the basic [package for free as much as you want. When you pay a little extra, you can actually see the click-through rate for your Sign-Up Emails, and this has helped me with recognizing what title lines/ subjects people are most responding to.

What do you dislike?

Under the basic (read free) package, you cannot link back to your website. But you get what you pay (or don't pay for...so just pay for it if you're going to use it more than once a month).

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend SignUp Genius. It's so user/ creator friendly. If you're on the fence on whether to pay or not, I would suggest AT LEAST trying the basic/ free package to give it a chance!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sign-Up Genius has made it easy to track volunteers (and get volunteers signed up in the best roles). It's helped make sure that we have enough people for each role and that once one area is filled, it shows our volunteers where we still need help.

"Quick and easy way to get members connected."

What do you like best?

I really appreciate how everything is a step by step process and the website walks you through what you need to accomplish in order to publish your sign up list.

What do you dislike?

Some of the features make the page look crowded. I've had people confused when going to sign up because they can't always figure out where to sign up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is an easy tool for those who wish to effortlessly get volunteers or customers/clients to sign up for an event, pot luck, etc. You should definitely use the email feature and send out emails to those you wish to sign up!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

By using this program, I eliminate a lot of work I'd have to do calling or emailing people at my organization to organize the time slots they wanted to sign up for events. This way, they can do it themselves and I don't have to constantly keep up with all of it. I can print out the list and keep everything together.

"Usable but not ideal"

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is for users to sign up for different events/meetings, and the different customizations the administrator can use for different types of meetings and scheduling purposes.

What do you dislike?

It is not user-friendly when it sometimes asks for users' emails or identification/to set up accounts. In addition, the email reminders are hard to keep track of and make it difficult to automate an entire sign-up process.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Good for smaller businesses; the larger the organization, the more potential mistakes and difficulty in administrating.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our office schedules dozens of meetings/appointments per week, and it is much more efficient to use a system than to do these manually. The benefits are not double-booking individuals, automated emails to users who have scheduled appointments, and less use of the telephone as it is time-consuming and inefficient to individually call people for standardized appointments.

"Best way to get help or donations for any event"

What do you like best?

Easy set-up and management. The pages are easy to navigate, and while some of the steps take some trial and error to learn, once the process is figured out, setup goes very quickly.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes there are two steps to do something when there should be only one.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This is a simple and straightforward way to get sign ups from a large group of people. The free version works well enough, but the paid subscription versions offer lots of features that can take signup management to a whole new level. Kind of fun to create these, too.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We often hold fundraising and volunteering events with our school. Having all of our needs listed for people to choose from and sign up for takes the burden off of having to pester and beg people for help! People seem more receptive to signing up for something when it has a pretty layout and signing up is easy.

"It's okay, but it could be better"

What do you like best?

I like that I can see each slot available for sign up and where there are gaps in the schedule. I also like that I can see which people will be working together on any given day, so that I know who I'll be partnered with before I arrive.

What do you dislike?

The program doesn't hold your spot if you're in the process of signing up for a time slot. There's been several times where I've picked a time, input my information, and then got an error message starting that the slot had been filled. I would rather be told that someone is currently signing up for that time right when I click on it, not after 5 clicks and 3 typed entry fields.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Scheduling student doctors for clinic hours and volunteer events. One large benefit is that it's very easy to see which slots are filled and which are still open.

"Perfect for Sign-ups"

What do you like best?

For employee engagement sign-ups, this is the best for time slots. Ex. blood drive - setting up individual times for donors to come to the blood drive. The employees can pick the time slot that works best for them and Sign-up genius will keep it organized and even send out reminders. Plus the appointment can be added to the employee's outlook calendar with a push of a button.

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to dislike. I sometimes have to manually add each time slot in instead of using a repeat function to schedule each time slot.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to track multiple appointment times yet give your employees the flexibility to sign up for their preferred time, this works well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It saves me a lot of time coordinating employee engagement events since those are usually over and above my regular job responsibilities. I can open the app and see how sign-up is coming and who is signed up.

"Perfect for Parent/Teacher Conferences"

What do you like best?

Signup Genius lets teachers easily organize multiple conferences on the same day. When a parent requests a conference, I can send them an email with a link to sign up. This allows the parent to choose the best available time that works for them. It helps keep me organized when I have 15+ back to back meetings in one day.

What do you dislike?

It is a little difficult to remember how to set up the sign up sheet exactly each time I use it. I was there was a saved button that would set up the sign up sheet the same way I used it in the past.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Teachers are able to keep in contact with parents and easily share their meeting schedule with other parents and administrators. It saves a lot of time and effort trying to organize back to back meetings on the same day.

"Awesome Service- I used it for a virtual job to sign up for shifts. Easy to read and navigate"

What do you like best?

I love this service!!

I get sent sign up genius link for my online job and can sign up and edit shifts that I want to work. It's easy to navigate and all shifts I sign up I can view from my profile and can see all history. It's customizable and fun as well.

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far in my time using it- I like all features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It solves the scheduling issue of working a remote job. It allows the employees to sign up for shifts and set up a schedule.

"Easiest way to organize our volunteer events."

What do you like best?

I like that with the premium option we could upload our picture, specify the "host" (listed on the sign up page--we could make it our organization name instead of my personal name), and remove ads. It takes all of the gruntwork of organizing off of us-volunteers can trade and sub shifts as needed without our interference.

What do you dislike?

The way it was set up, I had to merge/combine accounts with another person in my office, instead of just "inviting" someone else to edit the sign up.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this for event sign ups--we have one big event with upwards of 400 volunteers that we use SignUp Genius for, and we also use it for smaller events as well.

"Easy and Effective Sign Ups"

What do you like best?

Sign ups are easy to set up with numbered steps (tabs) to guide the organizer through the set up process. There are ready-made themes to choose from during setup and helpful videos available when you click the question mark icon. The program also allows archiving of old signups and you can reactivate or duplicate these as needed. There are many additional features available such as payment collection and reports.Also, there is a blog full of helpful tips and a mobile app that is available for both iOS and Android devices.

What do you dislike?

With the Basic free subscription there are ads on the top and side of the setup screens that can be distracting during setup. Optional p;aid levels (silver, gold and platinum) are ad-free and also allow for more email and text invites per month. The fees seem a bit high. At the moment they are 5% of the purchase plus .50 per transaction. However, this is charged to the participant and could be considered a convenience fee. The fees are most likely in line with similar services.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Full featured product that should meet your needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The automated signup process allows organizers of all types of events an easy way to assign roles and to make sure tasks are covered. The program sends out auto reminders via email or text. The SignUpGenius process saves time and improves communication. We might consider using the payment feature in the future but we use different software for this at the present time.

"Easy to Use Electronic Sign up Sheet"

What do you like best?

I love sign up genius because it is organized and helpful when creating sign up sheets. I am a user, not a creator of sheets, but as a user it is great! It sends me email notifications giving me a heads-up when it is my time to do whatever I signed up for.

What do you dislike?

I do not dislike anything about it. Again, I am just a user of Sign Up Genius--not a creator.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use this if you ever need to create a simple sign up sheet that every participant has access to! It is so very helpful.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For a while at our organization, we did not have a front desk receptionist. It was the admin assistants jobs to cover the shifts at the front desk. In order to keep this running smoothly, we all signed up on Sign Up Genius for different shifts and this helped us tremendously. We were able to keep track of who was scheduled for when and we were given reminders when it was our turn to take a shift.

"Making sign up easier"

What do you like best?

I like how user friendly the website it. I also appreciate the ease of importing emailing addresses and sending out blast emails. I like how easy it is to add things to the description.

What do you dislike?

Minimum features for unpaid members. As a school teacher, I don't want to pay for the yearly subscription but I can only send 1000 messages a month which has stinks.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I'd you're not going to pay for it, possibly explore other options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This site allows me to allow people to sign up for events which would be possible with Google forms (and I should probably use it since we have the Google suite at school) but it is generally easier to create a sign up through sign up genius. One huge benefit is that I get emails telling me when someone has signed up. It also makes it easier to send out email blasts to remind the people who have signed up to fulfill their commitment.

"Simple Scheduling "

What do you like best?

I like how you can just set up a scheduling sign up, send out the link, and forget about it. The people signing up can see what’s available and sign up without you having to cross check for conflicts.

What do you dislike?

It can be easy to accidentally use the wrong settings and then your sign up can go live before you are ready.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This takes the stress off you while making it easy for whoever is signing up on your schedule.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am saving a lot of time contacting parents to sign up for parent-teacher conference. I just send out the link and then my job is done until they show up for the conference. If they need to reschedule, they do it themselves and I get an email notification.

"Sign Up Genius is Genius!!! "

What do you like best?

I absolutely love how easy to navigate and create sign ups are. At the click of a button you can easily create and publish a sign up for any upcoming or future events that require volunteers, meetings, or a list of contributions needed. Also, depending on what you need, SUG has different plans that can fit into your business.

What do you dislike?

My only dislike are the advertisements that appear on my screen. I'm unsure if it's the type of account I have or if it's the whole platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's simple to use and great even for beginners! You'll catch on easily.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Sign Up Genius and the multiple organizations I work with, I am able to easily reach out to others for assistance or schedule meeting times with community members. It allows me to keep organization of of meetings or volunteers and is extremely handy around the holidays when we're hosting team potlucks, in which we all contribute party items. Its extremely beneficial to be able to keep track and even stay in contact with participants.

"Functional and easy to use"

What do you like best?

I enjoy using SignUp Genius for our events that require lots of organization and volunteer help. It is easy to use and laid out in a simple format that even the most basic users can utilize. I especially like that you can customize volunteer time frames and dates, so for example if certain volunteer slots need to be different or shorter/longer than others, you can adjust.

What do you dislike?

The advertising can be a little annoying, and being a non-profit we don't always have the ability to pay for an upgraded service without ads, but it's not the end of the world.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use all of the customization functions to design the event that fits your needs!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communication amongst event volunteers is easy and they can see how many slots are left for certain volunteer positions. It is prompt in notifying me when we have new volunteers sign up which is nice.

"Event sign-up "

What do you like best?

It makes recruiting, scheduling and keeping track of volunteers easy. Its easy sign up for shifts. It is easy to use; if you need to go on there and cancel or edit a response, all you have to do is log on and go to your sign-ups. I appreciate the flexibility to cancel/edit responses because I signed up for a volunteer time, but was able to change it to an earlier time, when that time became available, without having to directly contact the person who is in charge of the event. There is also an option, when canceling an event sign up, to send a direct message to the event coordinator, to explain why you are canceling your sign-up.

What do you dislike?

When a few people try to sign up at the same time for the event, it does not save your spot and ends up showing an error message. This is a common problem with a lot of platforms used for event sign-ups, including googledocs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it to sign up for events and volunteer opportunities. It makes signing up for events very easy.

"Just the Thing for Volunteer, Board, and Service Events"

What do you like best?

I love the ease of use of Sign Up Genius features, the variety of formats, and the fact that past sign ups continue to be available and accessible on their platform.

What do you dislike?

I really don't dislike anything about this software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have to coordinate the activities of large numbers of volunteers several times a year. I need a place where our volunteers and Board members can sign themselves up for service days, tours, meetings and events. Rather than sending out multiple emails listing the jobs we want to get done, or the assignments that we need to have filled, this is a one-stop solution. The benefits are having all the respondents' information in one place, with live updating and ability to send reminders or additional information as plans progress. People respond to the attractive graphics and ease of use.

"Great for organizing volunteers & events"

What do you like best?

An easy to use tool for volunteers to sign up and be reminded of how they have offered to contribute to an event.

What do you dislike?

For the events that I use SignUp Genius for, the free membership has been sufficient. Others may find the need to purchase a paid membership.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SignUpGenuis can be used for a variety of things so be creative and think outside the box. We have used it for people signing up to bring food or items to an event, to track volunteers working events, and helping out community members in need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can easily use SignUpGenuis to allow volunteers to indicate how they want to contribute and for all the needs of an event to be met. This allows the staff to spend their time doing other things.

"SignUp Genius "

What do you like best?

There are a LOT of things to like about Signup Genius. It is very, very flexible in terms of being able to set it up in a way that very much suits one's needs on a unique level. My church, school, sports teams and other clients are using it to manage everything from donations, volunteer time, meal planning and more.

What do you dislike?

Some of the little designs / layouts are a bit amateur looking? But you are able to get in and customize them a bit to improve their appearance. I just find some are a bit outdated for my tastes, with cute little backgrounds and graphics.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take some time to get to know all the various options and controls within it to better create your forms. There's quite a bit of customization capability, and you may need to try a few different types of forms to obtain the type of data you need. There are a lot of help topics and tutorials to help you as you go.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to coordinate all sorts of different types of needs - it really allows you to stay in contact with all of the participants/volunteers/donors. It's easy to send a message out to everyone for reminders or additional notes and keep track of exact details without countless hours trying to man a spreadsheet with this sort of data. Times savings = HUGE!

"Easy to use, but hard on the eye!"

What do you like best?

I love how simple it is to create a sign-up sheet for events, especially when different dates are involved.

What do you dislike?

The final product is very user-friendly, but it just doesn't look great. I wish the templates they provide were prettier to look at.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great way to create sign-ups fast and easy. If you are looking for something that looks polished and professional - this is not your product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using SignUpGenius helps me eliminate tons of emails and having to track, who signed up for what. It also allows users to change their selections, which reflects immediately on the creators side.

"Ease of Sign up's!"

What do you like best?

I feel that SignUpGenius has allowed me to save time! Being able to post a link for folks to sign up for events has become a blessing for this PTO mom!

What do you dislike?

I wish more of the 'advanced' features were free. Being a non-profit that depends upon student fundraisers, shelling out $ to access the features is not going to happen.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider offering nonprofits like education programs a deep discount (or free) for advanced settings

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Streamlining sign ups for events has been our biggest problem solver! In this day and age, everyone is hooked to technology and this has made it so much easier than parents having to snip a sign up sheet and send it back to school

"Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!"

What do you like best?

This is a great application for any type of business to use. It is easy to use and helpful to many. I have used this application software in my place of business as well as my personal life.

What do you dislike?

I do not dislike anything about this application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use this application as it will improve the quality and efficiency of your business. It allows for easy use with your online clients/community. There will never be an easier way to keep track of sing ups whether it be for a business or pleasure purpose.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving a couple problems with this such as double booking and having more than one person completing the same task. This is beneficial because work time is more stream lined and more efficient.

"Simple and does the job"

What do you like best?

It's an easy way for people to sign up for events. It's straight forward and simple to use.

What do you dislike?

There aren't many ways to customize it. It has a standard look to it and I can't easily customize it to "look" like the rest of my publications

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a quick, easy way for volunteers to sign up, this is the way to do it.

"Easy to use, a must have for any group event"

What do you like best?

Easy to set up. The custom templates and easy to understand set up steps make it a great way to organize events/ volunteers, schedule conferences. Also love the automatic reminders.

What do you dislike?

The way that custom question instructions are listed can be a little confusing. However the view page let’s you see what it will look like before you actually open the sign up so it is easy enough to test out a question, and confirm it’s the way you want it before you publish the sign up

What do you like best?

Great user interface - easy to use - and is nice that it sets reminders

What do you dislike?

It is not always used efficiently by coordinators; this ends up causing a lot of scrolling to find the best option for me. Needs to have an option to only look at available slots.

It makes it much easier to coordinate signups for multiple people and multiple dates.

"Sign-up Genius- easy to navigate "

What do you like best?

It is very intuitive once you begin creating a sign-up, there are multiple formats, you can email people directly through the site

What do you dislike?

You can't clone old sign ups, you have to create completely new ones, a lot of the nicer templates cost money, you can't print the sign up sheet in the form of a schedule

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good way to get a large number of people to sign up for something, but I am not impressed with the overall features. It takes a very long time to create a sign up and there are a lot of steps to complete. It is also confusing when you want to edit one particular sign up but it makes you select an entire section that you have to edit (you can't edit singular items)

"Facilitates Volunteer Sign Up"

What do you like best?

Lots of options to customize your sign up to get the look you want and easily display all of your volunteer shift options across multiple dates and times

What do you dislike?

There is a learning curve just like any other program. Takes some trial and error in the beginning to get it exactly how you want it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take advantage of the 14 day free trial.

"Great Software"

What do you like best?

Very easy to set up a sign up for our volunteers. Allows everyone to clearly see what is going on and when they are going to serve as well as where they are going to serve.

What do you dislike?

The site can look cluttered which can come off as confusing. I wish that it was a little clearer.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been using it to schedule our volunteers for various parts of our ministry. It has been great for organizing our volunteers.

"Easy software for coordinating volunteers"

What do you like best?

The variety of options I have for setting up the signups. Very customizable to my needs. I can set up a repeated event with a click of the button or I can do one off events where I need a large number of volunteers.

What do you dislike?

The links that you get for sharing the signup form are long and cumbersome. It would be nice to make a customizable link that folks could remember.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You do not need to be technology savvy to be able to figure out SignUpGenius. It is a simple process that makes sense each step of the way.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sign Up Genius allows us to delegate recruitment shifts to members of the board without making our staff cover the shift. The biggest benefit of this over other software is the automatic reminders the program sends to volunteers for me. With 2 shifts a week, this saves a ton of time that I do not have.

"Sign up genius is a great tool for group scheduling, though free version is ad-heavy"

What do you like best?

Allows me to make modifiable sign ups for classes and student meetings

What do you dislike?

The free version is ad heavy, and has limited functionality

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use it to schedule many student meetings (such as during advising). It allows me to send out a single link to many participants. I also like that I can log in and change/remove time slots while the sign up is still active. This is helpful if my schedule changes at the last minute.

"SignUp Genius"

What do you like best?

SignUp Genius is easy to use and navigate!

What do you dislike?

Yesterday I created a sign-up and I was a bit confused on one of the steps. I put "n/a" because I didn't know what else to write in the spot.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Every year we videotape interviews for one of our Signature events. It is so much easier to schedule multiple people for multiple times and days using this software!

"Quick and efficient process for employee participation!"

What do you like best?

The process is easy and quick. I like the fact that it saves my information and makes it faster to sign up for different activities at work. It’s also great that the appointment you sign up for can be added to your calendar.

What do you dislike?

I haven’t experienced anything that I dislike about the software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am usually asked to sign up for appointments rather than use it to sign up people in the organization, but I think it’s easier to use when you have a large organization and you are asking people to RSVP to an event or sign up for an appointment and you don’t have to keep track of 100s of emails on whether or not someone is able to attend. Everything is in one place and you can update your response as needed.

"Perfect for organizing volunteer events"

What do you like best?

SignUp Genius is awesome for organizing a list of volunteers for an event. The invite goes out to everyone and those who are able to participate follow the link and sign up for a timeslot. SignUp Genius also allows you to break the timeslots into separate categories too. Users can post notes for one another.

What do you dislike?

The user interface on the website could be a little cleaner. The fonts and colors are a bit distracting but it's easy to look past this since it is a free service!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use, web-based, anyone can do it!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Perfect for assigning tasks to a large group of people. For example, our preschool held a "Rodeo Fun Day" and parents were asked to staff various games like Ring Toss, Photo Booth, Bandana Bean Bag Throw, Bake Sale, etc. Each of these was listed as an option in the sign-up sheet. Parents knew which booth they would be at and for how long based on what they signed up for. It was also nice on the Bake Sale portion to list notes on what was being brought so we didn't have duplicate items (i.e., everyone bringing cupcakes).

There is nothing that I dislike about SignUpGenius that I have discovered yet.

"Making Volunteer Event Management Easier"

What do you like best?

I like getting a notice whenever anyone signs up and also appreciate being able to set a timeframe for them to get a reminder email about the event.

What do you dislike?

The ads for the free version seem excessive.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was managing my events with an excel spreadsheet and word document. People had to go through me to sign up and then I had to remember to send reminder emails. Everyone at the office can access the event to see how the signups are going.

What do you like best?

I like how easy it is for volunteers to sign up & that they get reminders.

What do you dislike?

It can be confusing to set up a large event, specifically when you have multiple shifts/times per day.

This allows us to keep track of volunteers and we have a way to reach them for next year.

"Sign up Genius for PTO"

What do you like best?

We use sign up genius for everything from book fairs to plant sales, from conference meal items to volunteers. It’s amazing and we stay organized

What do you dislike?

I don’t like that I can’t share information between two profiles but that is pretty minor when so much is free. We do pay for the extended version but we use the extra features

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Organization of large groups of people

"Great for work place and parties"

What do you like best?

We use this for multiple functions. We use it for interview sign-ups, training sign-ups, and food/drink/supply sign-ups for events. Super easy to create the sign-up and super easy to actually sign-up!

What do you dislike?

Nothing. It’s straight-forward and can be used for so many different things.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We do not have to call each person to sign up for various things. We just send one mass email with the link and they each do it themselves.

"We love SignUpGenius!"

What do you like best?

I love that I can list everything I need, timeslots, and then our volunteers can sign up for what works best for them. No more slotting volunteers into positions they don’t want to be in!

What do you dislike?

Honestly, there isn’t anything I don’t like about it!

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend signupgenius for anyone managing volunteers!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I’m solving the problem of volunteers being in positions they don’t want to be in. It’s also cut back on day of complaints because they know ahead of time!

"Sign Up Genius for Classroom"

What do you like best?

The ability to see others’ sign ups & email reminders are what I like best. They have a name recognition that parents know and trust.

What do you dislike?

The set up is confusing for many times and slots. I really dislike the advertisements.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solving time management issues for organization and communication. I can reach people without knowing their email addresses. They can change, delete or add to their entry without my assistance. I can print off a spreadsheet of signups.

"Good program for keeping track of volunteers"

What do you like best?

Makes it easy to sign up for multiple spots at once.

What do you dislike?

It would be helpful to have instructions at the top that tell people to pick their spots and then they'll be prompted to add their personal info.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use. Works well from a user standpoint. The Rotary Club used it to track multiple volunteers for a week-long event. They said it worked well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping track of volunteers with a program simple for everyone to use. Works well.

"Sign Up Genuis"

What do you like best?

It helps you to be able to sign up for things and to coordinate schedules with others easily via email. I also like that you can set up the reminders for people when they set up.

What do you dislike?

An outside program. Not much to dislike honestly except that his is ANOTHER site and another log in. Sometimes there are just so many log ins and sites that it gets overwhelming.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a good way to coordinate scheduling.

"So helpful!"

What do you like best?

Easy for coordinating schedules and tasks among a large group of people!

What do you dislike?

It's not the prettiest site I've ever used. It's really helpful, but it's not the best looking website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's simple, but if there are changes that are made to a schedule you created after the sign-up, know that you will need to update the sign up as well! The email reminders are SUPER helpful though!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Coordinating events and speakers for reoccurring meetings, scheduling speakers and managing schedules.

"Love It"

What do you like best?

Sign Up Genuis is very user friendly. You do not have to join to sign up for a time slot, which encourages the type of people who are afraid of getting spam emails.

What do you dislike?

You cannot email volunteers individually,

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make the ability to email individuals.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sign up genius allows me to manage volunteers without me having to constantly emailing back and forth available times. Volunteers can sign up last minute or cancel, which is helpful.

"Confusing"

What do you like best?

The purpose of each section seems overly complex, however I did find it easy to sign up for volunteer shifts

What do you dislike?

Difficult to maneuver the website and figure out which threads are appropriate for which topics

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Organizing volunteer shifts is made easier because I can see the times and each name of the volunteers
