SignUpGenius Software


 

SignUpGenius is a simple-to-use tool for volunteer organizing and event planning. This service helps nonprofit organizations and groups eliminate the need for “reply-all” emails, phone trees and paper sign-ups, and has enabled 7 million unique visitors each month to sign up for tasks online.

With over 500 custom theme templates from which to choose, SignUpGenius offers an easy way to customize online sign-ups to schedule volunteers, fundraise, track volunteer tasks and more. At the same time, powerful email reporting simplifies 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 GeniusDrive (a new cloud-based file storage tool for uploading and sharing event-related documents and images), volunteer hour tracking, email messaging center and more.

SignUpGenius was awarded the Communicator Award of Distinction for Web Applications/Services in 2013 and 2014, the 2014 Silver Stevie Award and the Best-in-Class Award from Interactive Media Awards. Because this service is Web-based, SignUpGenius is available to nonprofits, businesses and groups worldwide—regardless of their size or operating budget.

We use online sign-up sheets for a volunteer fire department with over 100 firefighters assigned to five different stations. Most of us have full-time jobs outside of being firefighters, so finding a way to coordinate activities in a fair and consistent way was time consuming and quite challenging. Online sign-up sheets from SignUpGenius streamlined our process, while making it very easy for our firefighters to use. We post a sign-up sheet electronically ,and it is instantly available to everyone. At the same time, one person can manage the sheets remotely, so it eliminated the need for paper sheets and multiple trips to stations to post, review, and collect those sheets.

Likes Least

What's not to like about the capabilities of this way of doing online sign-up sheets? The creators of Sign Up Genius built a product that takes a complicated process and makes it a smooth operation. It is so easy to use that there is seldom a need to ask for help. Then the friendly folks at Sign Up Genius are lightning fast to response on the rare occasions when you need help.

Recommendations

If you are looking for a way to simplify sign-up sheets, then you simply must take a look at SignUpGenius. There may be other providers of this service, but it would be a cold day in Minnesota before you will find one that stands up to the ease of use and functionality of SignUpGenius!

You can set up an account, enter your contacts, list items or attendance and get responses. Easy for everyone listed in the contacts to know what to do, bring or know who is coming.

Sometimes it's hard to edit your list to say you need three items brought and it doesn't always seem to populate that. Other times there isn't enough space to describe items or needs etc.

Do polls or surveys to various people who might use the product and see what can be produced software wise to get it right from the start.

Some features are not intuitive, and the features it does offer are pretty basic, which in most cases is fine.

Recommendations

The use I'm referring to is for volunteers in our organization to sign up for activities. I have also used VolunteerSpot in another organizations, which had very different events.
