SignUp does the all the necessary work. It sends out reminders and notifications like an assistant!

Pros

I have a bank of volunteers with whom I work as a nonprofit organization. When a community outreach event comes up and I need to notify volunteers, then I go to SignUp. It's easy to set up, navigate and operate. I create the venue and notify the volunteers right away. The volunteers can sign up by selecting which outreach event, location, and shift they want to volunteer for. Right at their disposal is a complete description of their responsibilities and duites. SignUp does all the work by reminding the volunteers of their assignment via email. As the Executive Director, I too get notification when someone signs up as a volunteer and the reminders that were sent. I can closely track all of the activity, know who has signed up and can opt to generate a sign-in sheet. It's a great way to centralize the nonprofit community outreach activity. It provides one-stop shopping so volunteers can see what fits their fancy. I absolutely love it! It has decreased my admin time by at least one-third. It's like having an admin assistant to complete the work I don't have time to do!

Cons

Volunteers can't find the location/address of the event once they've signed up. It's there, but just appears to be buried and not as visible as it should be. There are too many adds and it makes the page look busy.

Perfect for Non Profits

This is the second year that we have utilized SignUp.com for our fund raiser gift wrap booth and it saves me the administrator so much time and energy as it is easy to use and easy to create. Our nontechnical members can use it and we are able to have instant, accurate information.

Pros

This software was easy to navigate as an administrator in developing the project, and extremely easy to use for our members - including those that have limited computer skills. It easily shows availability, provides reporting and updates immediately.

Cons

Still trying to get it to function on my cell phone for on the go updates. Would love an app for android.

Reasons for Choosing VolunteerSpot

Ease of use, options, reports, and user friendly.

Exactly what I was looking for!

Overall SignUp solved a challenge that I was anticipating having to spend a great deal of time and energy on, and did it in a way that I don't think I could have coordinated manually. I would happily recommend this application to anyone needing to coordinate multiple people in either volunteer, work, or educational settings.

Pros

I needed to coordinate scheduling of multiple staff, over multiple days for one on one training session. SignUp made it beyond easy. I created the schedule, assigned the times slots, and shared the link in one email. SignUp did the rest including reminders to staff. For reschedules I was easily able to find how to links in the FAQ section and share that with my team so they could make adjustments. I was really impressed by how easy the set up and implementation was.

Cons

Few things in the user interface like how to hide/delete/archive an old project were tricky to find, but I ultimately figured it out. I hate to admit it as I've always considered myself fairly computer literate, but it may just have been my age related declining tech savvyness. :)

Another Software to Get People to Sign Up for stuff

Used Sign Up for alot of stuff until I discovered Sign Up Genius. Sign Up doesn't have the bells and whistles, including collecting payment, like Sign Up Genius does. Sign Up would be great for the most simplistic of sign up lists; nothing to big or with too many selections/options to pick from. Wish the website site had more of a design. It's rather blank looking with just words,, not very appealing. But the functionality ultimately does what it says it will do (and for FREE) which is good all around.

Pros

You can easily transfer an event from one person to another person to be the owner of.

Cons

It doesn't have many special features and setting up repeating items is not as simple as it could be

Response from SignUp.com

Replied October 2019

Hi Kim - Thanks for being a leader at your school and for taking the time to share your feedback, For clarification, SignUp does allow you to collect funds on the site, and we know how important budgets are so we only pass on the processing fee and don't charge fees ourselves (unlike SignUp Genius charges.). I'm sorry we didn't make it more obvious, but we absolutely do offer a near-instant way to schedule a series of appointment spots - like for parent-teacher conferences, and to set up repeating schedules. Please click Help at the top of the site to learn how or to contact our support team. Since most parents (80%+) will be signing up on smartphones, our screens are designed and tested for clarity and user success. I hope you'll give us a try again in the future.

Great for Classrooms!

Overall, I like the features and the basic concept that has worked well for me despite the cons listed.

Pros

I love the communication that the software does automatically when a volunteer signs up. I used this for classroom parties as well as my athletic home game volunteers.

Cons

The user interface is somewhat messy and the lingo that is used confusing at times. It can get really messy and busy!
