SignUpGenius Software


 

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.

Signup Genius is the best tool I've found for organizing sign ups for our church. It's extremely easy to use and offers flexibility to use for different things such as events, volunteer scheduling, potluck, etc. I would highly recommend it.

Pros

Functionality hands down. Even someone with limited computer skills would be able to use it.

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!

Saving time!

Pros

It is amazing how much easier it is to schedule volunteer orientations, events and set up shifts. My favorite feature would have to be the fact that once someone signs up they receive a reminder e-mail about their sign up so I don't have to do that piece. Its amazing.

Cons

Setting up shifts! I'm not a fan of the fact that the Date/Time is on a different tab than the Slots. I don't understand why they don't make that piece a bit more user friendly.

We enjoyed how simple and easy using this system was for our volunteers and other departments in the office!

Pros

We enjoyed the ease of use and simplicity of SignUp Genius. There is no way to not comprehend usage of the system on the general volunteer level, like some other more complicated volunteer management systems.

Cons

SignUp Genius is great for small nonprofits or churches, but not medium (25-50) or large (50+) nonprofits in that it just doesn't have the capacity to do as much as other large name volunteer management systems can.

Ease of managing a large number of volunteers across a variety of events. Effortless reminders of volunteers. Single location for all volunteers to get information.

Pros

I am in charge of staffing multi-day sales with volunteers about 15 times a year. I can contact all my potential volunteers with one click of a button. I can staff the sales with time slots of any duration. The program reminds my volunteers two days before of the time they signed up for. It allows me to communicate with all the volunteers without having to worry about incorrect emails or bounces. I ADORE this software!

Cons

It took me some time to figure out exactly how to create the time slots. It is a little confusing figuring out the difference between "Dates and Times" and time slots and how they interact. I tend to just reproduce previous

Sometimes we have multiple locations but the same times and we have to have different entries.

When I had difficulty matching email addresses and names, the staff was quick and helpful to correct the problem. Very pleased with the support!

Cons

that you cannot enter or correct a name on your own in your group. Customer support was very helpful, but I should have been able to make corrections without contacting you. I entered 2 email addresses that showed up with names that were incorrect. I also was unable to add names for the addresses I entered manually-not through an address book.
