Sign Up Genius

2020-06-24

I loved using SignUpGenius. At my new job we use a different software, but I wouldn't mind going back to SUG.

Pros

You can go with no frills or go all out in the design.

Cons

Honestly, I don't have any real complaints about the software, it was easy to learn, easy to use, and volunteers never reported problems with it.

Serves it's purpose but awful design

2019-02-03

Good but could be updated

Pros

Helpful for work social activity management.

Cons

The experience of using the website. It's terribly dated with stock photography templates that are not very appealing when using the website in a business setting. Could use a face lift.

Does the Job

2019-07-25

It does the job, but I consistently have parents reporting issues with wanting to access, amend and change their sign ups.

Pros

The thing I like most about this service is that it's accessible easily by all participants and can send reminders.

Cons

Parents have reported that they sometimes find the website hard to navigate and difficult to access previous sign ups.

Response from SignUpGenius


Hi Ileana,

There are various ways to delete or edit a sign up, depending on how you signed up. If you signed up using your email address, you can access the sign up by following the link provided in your email invite, confirmation or reminder message. When you view the sign up, you'll see text that reads, "Change your Sign Up." Click on that option and follow the instructions.

If you have a SignUpGenius account, it's pretty easy to remove your name or edit your sign up slot. Log into SignUpGenius.com and click on the Invited to tab. You will see Items I've Signed Up For. To remove your name, click the X to the right of the item. To edit information related to your sign up, click the pencil icon to the right of the item.

If you entered a typo in your email address when signing up, you may need to contact the sign up creator to make the change for you. I hope this helps!

SignUpGenius gets the job done

2018-09-29

My organization uses SignUpGenius to arrange potlucks and other group events. It has been a helpful tool for getting and keeping everyone one the same page, and then automatically reminding them of which page they're on.

Pros

It is customizable in content and appearance.

Cons

SignUpGenius reduces the inherent complexity of group management by limiting options around the edges.

Simple and free sign-up tool

2018-10-19

Pros

SignUpGenius is simple for the "outside" user - making sign-ups relatively straightforward. Management and reporting has been well thought out and implemented.

Cons

The set-up functions are confusing, especially in the "new" sign-up builder. The ads/layout is often distracting, sometimes causing confusion by "outside" users who visit the webpage to sign up for an event.

From Municipalities to Churches - An Essential Tool

2020-06-30

Once a time slot has been reserved, this prevents overbooking and exceeding capacity.

Pros

The options are endless when creating a sign up sheet with SignUpGenius: team snacks for sports, appointments at the courthouse or recruiting volunteers.

Cons

The option to brand the sign up sheet with company URL and customizable layouts who certainly be a design improvement.

SignUp Genius Review

2019-02-01

Pros

We use it to coordinate volunteer donations and for personal things like baby showers/wedding showers/blessings-after-baby for friends, and it sends automatic notifications to people who signed up.

Cons

I know there is a whole creating and downloading reports side to SignUpGenius, but I wish it was more of a main feature.

Hi Nicole,

Creating a custom report of your sign up data will only take a few seconds. Once you create your report, you can export the data for your records.

To create a custom report, go to SignUpGenius.com and log in with your email and password. On the left side of your account page, locate the Reports icon.
The first section of the reports page will allow you to select the sign up(s) for which you wish to run a report. You can choose up to 25 sign ups for a single report.

Next, the Date Range will allow you to include all dates from the selected sign up. You can also choose to enter the dates you wish to be included. Choose the type of report that you wish to generate. The List of sign ups for Export to Excel with All Fields is the most comprehensive report.

If you have any questions about report options, please email our Support Team: support@signupgenius.com.

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

2018-02-15

Easy to collaborate with other volunteers to make managing service hours easier.

Pros

Text and email reminders are fantastic tools

Cons

Ads & Customization only available in the premium level. Even at the lowest "pay" platform, the ads and you can only customize one view. Wish this was available in the lower level for the value, but the jump is too high for small organizations operating on shoestring budgets.

Thank you for your feedback, Francine. With the Silver level subscription ($107.89 annually) you can remove third party ads from up to 5 sign ups. As events pass, you can reassign the no ads licenses to new sign ups. A silver subscription will also give you access to hundreds of our premium themes. Additionally, you can create a custom theme using the Theme Builder advanced feature. If you need more than one custom theme, you can add your logo or custom image to any of our basic themes to customize your sign up. If you have any questions about how our subscriptions can help your school, don't hesitate to contact our Support Team: http://www.signupgenius.com/help

Good app to use for collaboration for events

2020-08-25

On top of that you can also use a mobile app version which greatly adds to the flexibility in using it and responding to sign up requests.

Pros

It is user friendly with many good options to set up signing up of people for events or games as well as get detailed reports of the sign up.

Cons

The user interface looks old, it could use a makeover.

Use for volunteer's management

2021-02-24

It does the job in terms of volunteer management

Pros

It's fairly easy to manage from both the user and admin interface. It's simple enough that volunteers can sign up for events and projects with no major troubles.

Cons

It's not handy for me to create a new event and therefore a table for every activity we do.

Perfect for Event Planning

2019-04-23

I've enjoyed using this, and it makes keeping track of events and volunteering easy as pie.

Pros

You can easily send out reminders for the few stragglers that may "forget" to answer, so you stay on top of your planning.

Cons

There are a lot of ads for the free version, but can't really complain for something that is free.

Great Way to get Volunteers Involved!

2021-08-05

I will continue to use SignUp Genius for volunteer management in the future!

Pros

I appreciate the ease of communication and data collection from volunteers The most, as it goes a step further than “sign your name”, which helps to have volunteers who are informed and committed.

Sometimes the interface is a little bland, but that is hardly a huge deal.

Game Changer

2020-02-25

Attendees can log on and see what room is available in real time. The reporting aspect is awesome!

Pros

I also LOVE the reporting aspect, it is so easy to use.

Cons

Some of the graphics could be better for the themes. I know they have added new graphics and removed some of the older pictures. I think some look a little cluttered. I would like to see neat and clean pictures available in the categories and less busy graphics.
