Pros

I personally like the ease of setting up events and registration pages, clean data capturing in reporting, and the ability to push those reports to a shared company-wide portal.
You can make your registration event pages quite robust with information- that is probably the best PRO of the software. It is also great that it is Cloud-based like all software should be these days.
Flex is a great addition to the product - super easy to use and aesthetically pleasing.

Pros

My experience was very positive. I loved the supportive documents, materials, and videos that were provided for me, as the conference organizer.
Sched is a fantastic tools that we used for organising our conference. Our attendees also enjoyed it and used it thoroughly with ease.
Love it! our event attendees comment on how they love it and find it easy to use.

Cons

If you use the legacy system, not only are you wasting your time learning a system that will be eliminated, but your events will disappear after the change as they can't be transferred.
Poor communications with management, no intentions to resolve customer concerns or address complaints.
Limited capabilities in e-marketing (no A/B testing, no series/time-based emails, no way for subscribers to change frequency of emails - you're either subscribed or opted out).

Cons

However, when accessing the app version, the updated information was not available and some of the session information was missing. This makes Sched unreliable if both versions do not sync accurately.
It's insane that I need 3 different logins - one to WonderCon/Comic Con in general, One to Sched, and another for the WonderCon/Sched hybrid.
I think for non-native English users, the single syllable abbreviated name was confusing.

Great Success for Our Virtual Homecoming 2020

Reviewed 4 years ago

Tremendous experience overall. Had only a few support issues that were resolved usually within an hour or two. Great user feedback from our attendees and our "higher ups" at the University were very impressed with Sched. Will definitely be using for Homecoming 2021 (as we will likely still have a virtual component next year).

Pros

Super easy to use and setup. Great customization options.

Cons

There was some confusion from users about whether adding an event to their "Sched" constituted RSVP'ing for a Zoom event.

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have now used it to host four pro-d conferences for teachers. It would be improved if it was not necessary to involve a secondary agent (EventBrite). This adds another frustrating layer for attendees to pro-d conferences to have to sign in.

Pros

Parts of the software are easy to use - inputting info for speakers and sessions.

Cons

Putting the event on-line and ready for those to sign in was trying - making the event specific to the needs of attendees proved challenging.

Excellent package and service

Reviewed 6 years ago

We used to publish our own website with conference info; it had the basic info, but it was hard to keep the pieces consistent. Now we link to the Sched site from our event page and attendees find everything there. Speakers can post their pix and handouts and complete/update their profiles and send e-mail blasts to all who signed up for their workshop. We got good reporting and from it (and Google Analytics) see a high engagement rate (not just page views; over half set up accounts and created a personal schedule). This is all from their lowest service level/tier; higher levels integrate more with registration/payment etc., but we already have an online store and used it for front-end registration.

Pros

One-stop shop for event management: attendees, speakers/handouts, exhibitors, rooms, messaging, feedback, social sharing.... Mobile-friendly site and app for participants to create/manage their schedules, submit feedback, share content, etc.. Smart import/export/update Responsive personal tech support Good pricing plans especially for nonprofits

Cons

We ran into a couple of small limitations (e.g. can't embed image in e-mail blast), but we found workarounds and Sched team is using our feedback to improve their platform.

The event was successful - what more can I say? It worked!

Pros

Sched was a great platform to allow one place for our attendees to participate in our various programs for the event. We figured out how to include our performances, silent auction, and live stream all in one event portal.

Cons

More flexible options - we had to figure out our own workarounds, and were able to provide feedback to the Sched team.

Love it! our event attendees comment on how they love it and find it easy to use.

Pros

I love how schedules are displayed for the participant, so clear and easy to see. I also love the ability to email attendees from the platform and how they also get a daily reminder. It is also wonderful how we can personalize the system with our own branding and images!

Cons

I feel the admin layout could be a little simpler, it took me a minute to learn. Not bad once you learn it though!

Sched shares the responsibilities and fun in event planning fairly among guests and organizers

Reviewed 3 years ago

My first experience with Sched was as a speaker on a conference event being organized by our foreign collaborators. As my first foreign speaking engagement, I was naturally extremely nervous, but Sched made collaborating with the organizers so easy and that I felt very much at ease and ended up delivering an exceptional session. After that experience, I recommended trying Sched for our own subsequent conference events.

Pros

Sched allows event invitees to build their own schedules within the frame of the general event. This facility empowers us as organizers to make the necessary adjustments to redirect resources to sessions where they will be most-needed. As speaker in Sched-facilitated events, I can also attest that the control it offers me over my profile to directly suggest changes and modifications to event structure makes the entire experience amazingly rewarding.

Cons

It can be a bit overwhelming for planning smaller events. Perhaps, there could be a basic version release which can be more suited for planning fun and less professional gatherings.

Sched

Easy tool for attendees to view schedule at any conference or event

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, my experience with Sched was mediocre, at best. I only used Sched to see my conference schedule at a glance. Although, if given the chance to use Sched again, I will try out the other features, such as using my profile to find others at an event to network and connect with.

Pros

I like the ease in downloading the Sched app and the fact that it is free to use. Also, the interface is very user friendly with eye-catching colors to highlight your event schedule. This makes viewing your event agenda or workshop/session schedule easy to find.

Cons

I have discovered the Sched application version is different from the web version. For example, I recently attended a conference that allowed attendees to access both versions. I logged into both versions of Sched and found the web version to be more accurate. The web version was updated more frequently with current information about the conference sessions. However, when accessing the app version, the updated information was not available and some of the session information was missing. This makes Sched unreliable if both versions do not sync accurately.

Vendor response

Hi Valamere, Thank you so much for reviewing Sched. I really appreciate you taking the time. You'll be happy to know we're working to improve how the app refreshes the data to ensure it always displays the most up-to-date information.

It's probably a great software for people that use it consistently but for user's like me - who only use it once a year it's not so great.

It's ability to allow us to create an online agenda with workshops, deep dives etc. for our event attendees; it's ability to let attendees enroll for workshops etc.

Cons

We only use it once a year for a very large event and I feel like I have to relearn it every year because of changes that have been made to the software.

Best Decision our Organization Made!

Reviewed 4 years ago

My experience was very positive! I loved the supportive documents, materials, and videos that were provided for me, as the conference organizer. What was most beneficial for me was allowing all of the different Zoom links to be housed in a single location. The color-coded organization and ability to personalize the aesthetics was incredible.

Pros

The software is incredibly intuitive to set up and manage. The set up allowed such an easy-to-navigate experience for conference attendees. I absolutely cannot imagine hosting an event without Sched!

Cons

With all the many wonderful features Sched had to offer, it was difficult for me to know where to start when setting up the event. The more I immersed myself in the software, the more features I realized were available for use.

Sched Made My Virtual Event Happen

Reviewed 3 years ago

I had used Sched successfully for a live event but the following year, we were 100% virtual. Sched allowed us to be in touch with attendees easily and provide a well-rounded experience.

Pros

Using the Live Stream feature was simple and it worked every time. My biggest stressor about our virtual event was having the links work. Everything went off without a hitch. Customer service was prompt and knowledgeable.

Cons

I would like to be able to include photos, gifs, and other files to messages we send to session attendees.

Very positive. Great product, with a support team that listens, responds and does its best to help with any issue.

Pros

Excellent usability, the scheduling workflow is extremely intuitive for administrators, speakers and attendees. It was very quick to get our event up and running, and we had hardly support queries from our attendees & speakers.

Cons

There were some minor issues with the Eventbrite integration, which could be solved by running a practice event to better understand how the two systems work together. The support team were very helpful and responsive.

Couldn't Do It Without Sched

Reviewed 5 years ago

We are a preK-12 school district that hosts a yearly EdCamp in which teachers sign up for workshops delivered by their peers. Sched is a huge time saver, in that it allows us to communicate directly with presenters and attendees, to control the schedule, to create room signage, to add venue maps, and to generally make the day run smoothly. It saves paper, as we don't have to print all those workshop overviews (which we were always doing at the last minute because we had to chase people down for them!), and helps us control the numbers of people attending workshops so they are not overbooked. I don't know how we would be able to do this at this scale without Sched!

Pros

This software takes so much of the redundancy out of event organizing. No need to copy and paste information into twenty different locations, or to type in email addresses multiple times. It is a huge time saver!

Cons

I would like to be able to add a bit more design to the room signage (but it is a hugely helpful feature). It would also be nice for workshop presenters who are also attendees to have their own workshops in their own schedules, without it looking like they are taking up a seat.

We have used Sched three times for campus-wide conference style events with over 100 sessions each, attended by 600+ people. It is easy to use for the event admin, and provides a clean user interface for the attendees.

Pros

The simplicity of use by the event admin. It's well designed and sensible. The bulk upload for speakers and sessions is fantastic! And the customer support has been very responsive. We like the way it generates sessions/room, also - we print them and tape to the door.

Cons

The attendee's individual schedule should be easier to find (they don't expect to have to click on their photo). I have struggled to find info in the help section - it's a little had to find details.

Smooth & Simple for the Win

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

I have used many similar products in the past and have never found one so easy to learn and simple to implement. Updates were made real time with seamless integration to my website. The ability to build the schedule and Presenter bios in Sched and embed them on my web page saved hours of tedious web development time. I nearly cried when I learned I could embed different pieces on separate pages of my website. What a gift! To say I am delighted with my experience is an understatement. Thank you for making the event management experience such a breeze!

Cons

I do not have any cons. I was pleased with my experience and with the customer service I received.

Been using Sched for years

Reviewed 3 months ago
Pros

User interface is clean, easy to understand, and reliable.

Cons

Sched doesn't support some features that would make it a comprehensive tool for our event planning—specifically, "hidden" events for things like sound checks, additional fields for things like tech needs, etc. This isn't really the fault of Sched; they're not necessarily intended for these sorts of uses.

Amazing for simple, visually apealling, and easy to use event organization.

Reviewed 5 years ago

I wish I could use Sched all day everyday, but unfortunately only get to use it a few times a year. My experience has been the best I could expect from an organization.

Pros

Sched is easy to use behind the scenes, but also very very user friendly for those attending the event. Many options available through different sized packages, very few limitations as far as designing goes. Customer support is THE BEST of pretty much any company I've ever worked with. We've been using Sched for over three years for events and have never been disappointed.

Cons

To find something as a con, I'd have to be pretty nitpicky here. It's perfectly functional and I never feel limited or frustrated by it.

NO NETWORKING FUNCTIONALITY?

Reviewed 8 years ago

As an attendee of an event, Sched is very easy to use, until you want to connect with another attendees and then it's TERRIBLE. You have to rely on the delegates uploading their social network accounts and then use Linked in or FB to message them. This is not good. We have received many complaints within 24 hours of launching the service. FAIL.

Pros

Usability

Cons

Connectivity between delegates is ZERO

Vendor response

Hey Jasper, Thank you for taking the time to review and help Sched improve. I'm sorry for my delayed response, Capterra didn't publish this review for me to see until December 2017 for some reason. Networking is something we're looking into improving down the road. It's definitely not our strong-suit currently and I'm really sorry that the lack of attendee messaging was a surprise to you. We...
