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.

It's great for personal projects

I find that SignUp Genius will get the job done as far as collating volunteer efforts. It is easy to use.

Pros

Sign Up Genius is simple to use. There is not you can get wrong with Sign Up Genius. It's easy to train someone how to use it.

Cons

It is very simplistic and it doesn't have a lot of advanced features. For a parent or volunteer on the go, the notification emails may get lost in the shuffle.

Takes the work off of your back

Pros

This program is genius! We use it for setting up all of the volunteer opportunities in my child's school. It makes the process much less cumbersome. No one needs to keep a separate spreadsheet and we can all see who is volunteering when so if we need to switch we know who to ask!

Cons

A bit confusing when setting up a new Sign-Up.

SignUp Genius review

We offer Skype calls between kids at Naomi's Village in Kenya and their sponsors in America. SignUp Genius has helped the process of signing up to be much smoother. By allowing people to edit their own information and sending out reminders, I can focus on getting the kids ready rather than trying to organize everyone else.

Pros

I like that I can create a sign up form and then individuals can sign up and edit their own information. I also like that SignUp Genius sends reminders without my having to do that.

Cons

There's nothing I don't like about this, it has made my life simpler.

Great for Group Gatherings

Very good minus a bug (that may have been my error)

Pros

Easy to let a group know about event details and what items are needed. They way people sign up prevents too many people choosing one thing.

Cons

I couldn't get the link to e-mail out correctly from the site, but once I copied and pasted it into my own e-mail everyone signed up quickly.

Sign up genius

I've grown my email address list more than 2 fold with using the software.

Pros

I love it. It's easy to use for both the user and the generator.

Cons

That my clients have to resign in continually. That the software doesn't remember them.

Thank you for your review. It may be helpful to know that your group members do not need to have a SignUpGenius account in order to sign up. If your participants do choose to create an account, they can use the 'Remember Me' option so that they do not need to enter a password each time they log in to the site.

Works Great

Pros

Effectiveness. This product allows us to create simple, organized lists of who will do which job.

Cons

It can occasionally be difficult to create a list, particularly with a number of "fiddly" parts.

Sign Up Genius - easy to sign up, hard to set up

Pros

I really liked that this allowed for sign ups. In my school we used it for many things, from conference time sign ups to party supply sign ups. It was great because it was updated as soon as someone signed up and that way everything got signed up for and there was no risk of double booking/signing for a time slot or supply. It was really easy to access from the sign up end.

Cons

This was great to be able to sign up, however, setting up the first time is tricky and seems to have too many convoluted steps. There seemed to be lots of steps that could have been condensed or the wording was odd and confusing.

Great way to organize a party, but not the most user friendly.

This is a great tool to use for company get together a when a sign up is necessary. It just takes some time and patience to navigate how to put your sign up together.

Pros

Being able to ask for volunteers to help with group functions.

Cons

Navigating the website. It was hard to know where to start and how each step worked when creating a signup.

SignUpGenius Review

Pros

Sign Up Genius allows me to easily create sign ups and registration pages for events. It also sends an email to the participants to remind them of the event.

Cons

The program forces users to create a Sign Up Genius account in order to register for all events.

Response from SignUpGenius of SignUpGenius

Replied January 2019

Hi Carol Ann, Users are only required to enter a name when they sign up. The email address is always requested because most users prefer to receive a reminder of their commitment. However, the email address is not required unless the creator of the sign up has required the email address. The email address will be requested, there is not a way to remove that option. We always give users the option to create an account if they wish to do so, but it is not required. If you have any questions, please email our Support Team at support@signupgenius.com. Thanks!

SignUpGenius makes organizing volunteer hours easy

Pros

SignUpGenius made organizing our Cub scout popcorn sale volunteer time slots easy. Before using SignUpGenius I had difficulty getting my volunteers use my previous solution.

Cons

Some features require a payment plan such as closing the sign up form prior to the event.

Not complicated, but good function/benefit-to-cost value

Pros

It's fairly streamlined and easy to use, with a decently fair UI. Pricing for nonprofits and the ability to pay monthly is handy for entities with limited sign-up periods or only intermittent needs, so it keeps costs down. Has some good HR applications for employee sign-ups.

Cons

If you exceed a certain number of sign-up instances for some of the products, your audience will need to endure ads. It can sometimes feel cluttered, but that's probably more a sign of feature creep than poor design.

Wonderful for volunteer sign up

Pros

Very easy to access and pretty user friendly for anyone signing up to volunteer for things.

Cons

Description of what is needed should be easier to see and should show up right away.

The easiest way to sign up for small gatherings

I've used it mainly to know how many people are coming to gatherings that revolve around food and for this purpose it is amazingly simple and easy to use.

Pros

It's easy to use and the free version for personal use is the best free way to host small gatherings and parties to know who's coming and what they might be brining. (If food is involved.) It's easy to setup and easy for your guests to sign up and communicate with you. You can even have somewhat of a matching theme for the appearance of your invitation as the theme of your gathering if you prefer...and that's easy too.

Cons

For the free version you'll have to deal with ads...but can we really consider that a con when it's free? I think not! Besides that, there really aren't many cons to SignUpGenius...it's just that easy.

Pros

I love that I can get a link from my son's teachers or school that allows me to see what times I am able to sign up for events; it's free; easy to use.

Cons

I don't have any cons for this product at this time. :-)

Plan perfectly with SignUpGenius

Its a great tool that makes planning a get together so much easier and keeps you from having 7 different versions of potato salad at your party!

Pros

SignUp Genius is great for planning parties, and coordinating who will bring items and takes the guess work out of how to plan.

Cons

Some of the functionalities are not the best, however it is a free application and not worth complaining about.

The advertisements are a bit intrusive at times and can make it visually hard to see what you are looking for.

Just love it

Pros

And expensive, user-friendly, great for scheduling volunteers organizing events collecting money. Great for a Reminders with lots of different options and creating. Are use this for a special on profit festival, of members only and It’s genius.

Cons

I’ve read a lot of reviews that were less than stellar but I just don’t agree. I think that may be, at least Amandah standing is that if someone is had some out of date hardware they may have had a problem with it, or maybe a connectivity issue but really didn’t have any problems with this at all.
