SignUpGenius is an online tool for volunteer organizing and event planning. The service provides nonprofit organizations, schools, businesses and groups with an alternative to “reply-all” emails, phone trees and paper sign ups, and helps visitors sign up for tasks online. SignUpGenius is suitable for groups regardless of their size or operating budget.
Users can choose from various theme templates, and SignUpGenius lets users customize online sign ups to schedule volunteers, fundraise, track volunteer tasks and more. At the same time, email reporting enables coordination by keeping event planners up-to-date on volunteer participation and event details.
Two types of accounts are available: Basic and Pro, which itself comes in three different levels. Pro account users have access to extra features, including custom themes, multiple administrators, no-ads sign ups, volunteer hour tracking/reporting, an email messaging center and more.

This software is great for organizing groups. It ensures that your events are staffed with volunteers and that you will not spend hours wrangling confirmations from your volunteers. At each event, it is always clear who is to do what. This helps keep all the feather unruffled. Recommended.
I often use this software for volunteer management for my church and a non-profit arts group that I support This software takes zero knowledge to use effectively. Every part of creating a sign-up for an event is intuitive. This makes planning a snap. It even helps me plan better events by listing out specific tasks for my volunteers.
I don't like the fact that you must add new tasks to the sign-up sheet in groups of five. I wish that it were possible to just add and delete at will.

We are happy to hear how SignUpGenius is helpful for your sign up needs. In Step 4: Slots, you can add a single slot or up to five slots at one time. If you need more than 5 slots, you can select the option to add more slots and you will be returned to Step 4.
You can also edit a sign up at any time after the sign up has been published. So if you need to delete one or more slots, simply return to Step 4 and delete/edit slots as needed. If you have questions about slots, don't hesitate to contact our Support Team by emailing [email protected] We will be happy to help!

Overall, my experience with SignUpGenius has been positive. The end product that goes out to parents is easy to use and effective. You have to be willing to spend some extra time to create your sign up, but once you do, you can be confident that it will do the job well.
I use SignUpGenius for a number of activities as a teacher. I use it for assessment scheduling, party sign ups, field trip volunteers, conference scheduling, and a few other things. The best part about this software is that you can send a sign up out to parents/guardians via email, and they can sign up without bothering with any kind of official sign in or registering. They can even do it straight from their phone. I have found that by doing it this way, I get a lot more sign up activity. The actual sign up is easy to use. I have only had a few parents have trouble with it after using it for years.
The process of actually creating the sign up can be a bit confusing. There are many different tabs at the top that you have to navigate through. When using the software, I often have to go back and forth from the tabs to the "preview" button and see what the changes actually look like on the sign up form. The "preview" button is helpful and necessary to see what the final result will look like before sending it out. Ideally, the set up would be easier to navigate.

Our school system uses sign up genius to organize donations, party planning, and volunteers. I've used it many times to "sign up" for things for both of my children's classes and have had nothing but a good experience. A +++
The concept of this organizational tool is just way over do. I cannot imagine what a time saver it must be for so many different industries. It streamlines a whole process that is incredibly time consuming but necessary. I could also see the value in using this software as an individual for fundraising events or even just party planning. On the user side of this software I love that it is pretty much self serve. I can view all of the options available to me, as well as what others doing, and "sign up" without ever having to get in contact with any administrators. I also love that I am automatically sent a reminder. Just a side note, sign up genius works extremely well in conjunction with Class Dojo in the school setting. I think you get a ton of value for the money.
The only thing I can really see as a con in using this software is that it is impersonal, but that could also be viewed as good thing, as it is pretty much self serve you as the "host" no longer have to delegate or mediate who's doing what or who's bringing what!

It is solving business problems like knowing who and what tasks are assigned to individuals when we are seeking volunteers for programs and events.
I liked that you can create categories for others to sign up and you can see where you signed up, in case yo forgot what you signed up for.
It wasn't the software, but some users do not know how to create categories so it makes it difficult for individuals to sign up for various tasks, Perhaps, examples of how people can use it might be helpful to those that are building sign up tasks.

We've used SignUpGenius for 4+ years, and have never been "blown away" by it's features. At the same time, we have been able to use it successfully (with lots of volunteer training sessions). The software hasn't introduced any major overhauls or improvements in all the time we've been using it.
We've been able to coordinate 200+ seasonal volunteers who help in 12+ positions at 60+ events.
The software can be rather confusing, especially when onboarding new volunteers or staff.
