Pros

It's a nice one-stop-shop for my submission materials and nice to be able to check the status of various submissions in the same place.

SL

Sarah L.

Excellent customer service and support. Very responsive to all my questions and those of applicants.

KR

Kathleen R.

There are so many functionalities that are useful and I'm certain I'm only using a small portion of all that's available. I highly recommend this software as a solution for tracking submissions.

Pros

Sched is a fantastic tools that we used for organising our conference. Our attendees also enjoyed it and used it thoroughly with ease.

FF

Federico F.

My experience was very positive. I loved the supportive documents, materials, and videos that were provided for me, as the conference organizer.

AS

Amber S.

A very good software indeed and their help desk is efficient and useful.

Cons

Do I miss handling over and over sections of the application and loosing track when interrupted in the process when a click of a mouse brings me right back.

MJ

Mary Jane E.

Do I miss being burdened by attempts to streamline or simplify a labor intensive process only to discover all the benefits of using Submittable.

MJ

Mary Jane E.

I wish that the software pinged the various outlets using it when they haven't marked your application as "Rejected. It's annoying to see the submissions sitting there as "Pending" forever and ever.

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.

VM

Valamere M.

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.

ZI

Zach I.

I think for non-native English users, the single syllable abbreviated name was confusing.

Sched

Excellent package and service

Reviewed 3 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.

Sched review

Reviewed 3 years ago

Positive. I highly recommend it if you have the money in the budget.

Pros

The Sched app is a great option for managing events where attendees will register. I only have experience using it within the field of education, but was very pleased. The best aspects are the: 1. customer support and online help 2. ability to categorize sessions 3. ability to link with social media platforms 4. quick uploads with spreadsheets (importing) 5. visual layout of schedule 6. user-friendliness for attendees 7. mobile-friendly website and app

Cons

I have no real major concerns to submit; however, I would point out that our attendees were confused by one feature (which was not Sched's fault). Attendees can "register" for sessions on the app; but we used this feature so that attendees could more so plan their schedule and find back-up sessions, not to actually reserve spots. It would be great if this was an actual feature somehow.
