Virtual Admin Support

Excellent experience. I am pleased with the service, product, and outcome. It's like having an administrative assistant.

Pros

The software is easy to use and it gives you options. I like that I can develop multiple volunteer assignments and shift. Volunteers can sign up for what works best with their schedules. I can manage one page that groups together community outreach, fundraising, and special events. And most importantly, it's linked to the web page so potential volunteers can see what volunteer opportunities are upcoming.

Cons

The page is busy because of the advertisements!

Sign Up management is a breeze with Signup.com

Perfect for a small school or small non-profit in planning an event where lots of people bring multiple items.

Pros

Easy to use, quick and makes management of sign up lists a breeze! No more thousands of emails back and forth or worrying about people replying all to make sure things don't get doubled up. Plus they send reminders!!

Cons

Lots of ads on a page, but that's because it's free. Just need to be away of what not to click on.

Easy-to-Use Volunteer Scheduling Software

Pros

This is an easy-to-use volunteer scheduling software that allows you to coordinate various volunteers for events. It is a mostly free software.

Cons

The pricing plans can be confusing. There are additional add-on pricing options based on the number of participants.

Great for HS Reunion Organizing!

I've also used SignUp.com to organize a professional luncheon, and our turnout was higher than ever -- we believe because of the ease of RSVP-ing and paying in just a matter of minutes. Will definitely recommend SignUp.com and use it again in the future, enthusiastically!

Pros

Setting up the RSVP and payment functions (through WePay) was straightforward and intuitive. While not specifically designed for this specific function (a high school class reunion), it worked spectacularly and not only helped people RSVP, but also commit with their payments and get automatic periodic reminders. It took the pain out of having to collect money in cash or checks, and eliminated the need to post "someone at the door" to collect, so that all of us could just enjoy the reunion when it arrived. Also the ability to generate the list of RSVPs (sign-ups) and share with others was terrific.

Cons

For us, gathering RSVPs but also collecting money, the process of going from one to the other could be improved as a few people signed up but didn't pay at first, and others paid at first but didn't "sign up." Once the organizer chooses to collect money, the system should self-configure to guide the end-user (who is signing up) to both sign up and then pay, to avoid having people do one part but not the other.

Sign up review

Thanks so much for providing this service to teachers. I used signup.com in order to have my students’ parents schedule parent-teacher conferences online. It was very useful and once I set up the signup, it was left out of my hands, allowing me to focus on the other work I needed to do related to teaching and preparing for conferences. Once again, it is very much appreciated that you provide such a simple to use program. I will definitely use signup.com again in the future.

Pros

I was able to easily send and assign spots for parent-teacher conferences to my students' parents.

Cons

I did need help from another teacher making sure that I used the features correctly.

An easy-to-use site! This made the volunteer process for our school fete much easier.

Pros

It's mostly free, and very easy to use. There were enough features to make signing up our volunteers clear and simple.

Cons

Nothing, though if I needed to use it more often I would probably opt in to the paid features.

Appointment schedule made easy

Twice a year, I have to set up 60+ 30-minute appointments over a three-week period. It takes me about 15 minutes to do so.

Pros

Ease of use & reliability. I have used several different scheduling applications in the past. Each of them was either difficult to use and/or unreliable. SignUp is neither of these: It is easy to set up the appointment schedule; it is easy for clients to choose appointments (and change them). The clients are reminded two days before the appointment is scheduled. I get reminders showing my appointment schedule for the next week and the next day. I get notified when a client changes an appointment time. If my schedule changes, it is easy to add or remove appointment times.No "cons

Cons

No "cons." It is a relief to have software working for me, instead of against me.Twice a year

Pros

It allowed quick access to everyone's schedule. It also kept more than one person from signing up for a specific spot making the volunteers happy. It made managing the volunteers much easier.

Cons

No problems after the restructuring of the program last summer.

Makes Organizing not so Agonizing!

Great app/ program. Really helped organize our event and great way to communicate what was needed. Also gave updates on task that were signed up for, great updates. Takes the stress out of organizing functions/ tasks for projects, dinners. Definitely recommending to friends and family! Can get app on phone makes it even more convenient. Thanks!

Pros

Very easy to figure out and set up. Like the ability to have the app so you can manage from your phone.

Cons

Can’t say that there was anything I could put my finger on that was negative about this app.

Easy & Efficient

Parent/student/teacher conferences. This was my first use of SignUp.com. Was it just a coincidence that I had 100% with far less work and frustration than in 17 previous years?

Pros

User friendly. As a teacher, I love not having to print out and send home new conference availability forms as slots fill up. SignUp does that automatically, and sends out reminders to parents. If a parent needs to reschedule a conference for any reason, it's so easy to do.

Cons

I did not have any issues with this software, nor did any parents report issues.

Great for Parent Teacher Conferences

I had a great experience using SignUp.com and will use it for many more things! Great software!

Pros

I liked that the parents could sign up for appointments that were convenient for them instead of me having to guess what time would work for their circumstances.

Cons

I was a little confused on how to print out a list with the names of the students, not just their parents, but finally found it.

Organizing volunteers for Library Book Sale with ease

The product is easy to setup and our volunteers find it simple to use. We have been using this service for 3 years and have found it to be a BIG time saver. We shotgun out an email through sign-up.com to all of our registered volunteers. They can go the the sign-up area and choose which shifts they wish to volunteers. We have an active record of our volunteers spots that are filled and the volunteer receives a reminder email a few days before their volunteer shift. The biggest benefit is that I can clone previous events where we typically have the same need for volunteers. Simply change the dates for the event and all of the open shifts are automatically placed into the cloned event. WOW! Love this service!

Pros

The best thing about this product is that it is SO easy to use and setup. Our volunteers enjoy the ease of online sign-ups and the helpful reminders when their shift is near.

Cons

I love everything about the service. I have nothing negative to share.

Super Easy to Schedule Parent/Teacher Conferences!

This is my third or fourth year using SignUp.com for organizing my parent-teacher conferences and I love it. I heard much positive feedback from parents about ease of use and how quickly they were able to confirm their time. Many loved the email reminders as well!

Pros

Immediate sign up for parent teacher conferences
Email reminders
Ease of Use

 

Cons

Sometimes I feel that setting up the signup can be a little confusing.

Perfect for event volunteer management

We host an annual conference that moves around the county, so we set up the event, the shifts, and job descriptions and gave local partners the SignUp link to send to their volunteers. It was so turnkey and easy for everyone to understand.

Pros

You can access a free version, which had all the functionality we needed. The automatic shift reminders, the ability to let volunteers schedule themselves and the comprehensive reporting made this an ideal solution for us. It's also super simple to set up and use.

Cons

Anything I didn't like or wanted to see was available in the paid upgrade, so I really can't complain when I was getting everything for free.

Saves me hours of work every week!

As the volunteer coordinator for my church, this allows me to keep a pulse on different ministries without pulling out my hair. This saves me so much time!

Pros

I love how
...I can (with the free version) set up multiple pages for different ministries.
...it automatically emails volunteers to remind them.
...it links with Remind so I can recruit at large without leaving the website.

Cons

I wish I could have several people with the same email address (i.e., a mom and child -- so they could sign up separately). Right now, I can only have parents sign up and we have children volunteer spots available, but I can't use the site to plug them in.

I don't know if I can see all the spots and volunteers for one date. I get an email for that weekly, but it would be nice to see it on the website. If it is available, it is not intuitive.

The only volunteer scheduling software I will use!

Non-profits couldn't exist without volunteers. This software makes it easy for them (which means they'll help out again!) as well as for the coordinator who is often juggling many balls. In fact, Signup made the whole volunteer component of our Film Festival so easy that I recommended it for another festival with which I'm involved!

Pros

I've appreciated the tremendous support. Whenever I've had a question, I've received a response within a few hours. I'm not a real techie, so it is comforting to know that help is available when you need it.

Cons

When assigning people to a Signup/job, I would like to be able to pull names from other Signups for that group, rather than having to input info for a volunteer who is already recorded for a different job in that group.

Great Product

Pros

Had a great turn out at my parent conferences because SignUp automatically sent the invite to the parent's email address. They could sign up for one slot that fit their schedules so I did not have to send home a sign up list, have them choose three spots, and hope that I did not schedule another conference with on their selection. Signup sends an email reminder to all the families. All I had to do was set it up. No reminder notes to send home and no switching around conferences—easy peasy.

Cons

Sometimes it was hard to navigate between setting up the spots and checking who signed up. I wasn't always notified when a parent signed up, so I had to check it daily. This wasn't a big deal, but I had to make sure ALL of my parents had signed up. Also, not all parent have access to a computer, so they didn't check their email. However, I just called those parents and inserted their names so I could print out a complete schedule for the week of conferences.

One HAPPY Teacher

I love your site. I changed from another website because they're ability to transition from desktop to mobile device was super glitchy and I received lots of parent complaints. I love that the website sends reminders to parents and I don't have to. Overall, just SUPER pleased with your product and I use it multiple times a year for anything from parent-teacher conferences to sign ups for classroom donations to organizing volunteers. LOVE signup.com!!!!!

Pros

Ease of use on mobile devices.
Colorful & fun graphic choices.
Ease of use.

Cons

Nothing. I am very happy with the software and use it multiple times throughout the year.

Perfect for managing volunteers for our non-profit!

We managed to get 1600 volunteers for our event from 80 academic institutions and painted 3000 walls and 700 murals in a slum community in New Delhi! Signup.com worked perfectly for our non-profit. We will be using it much more frequently.

Pros

I love how easy it is to use and how quickly you can set it up.

Cons

I think deciding which plan to get was slightly confusing since I wasn't clear on all the different plans got. But I emailed and then it was easy to decide.
