We used VolunteerSpot for a short period of time before switching to another similar product that can be used for volunteer management and general sign ups. Our volunteers found this product difficult to use compared to the other product. For me as the volunteer coordinator it was easy to use and seemed to work well.

Pros

Ability to input recurring time slots, ability for volunteers to switch slots on their own without having to contact the volunteer coordinator

Cons

Volunteers found it confusing and difficult to use.

Likes Least

Can't change the date once it's set. A lot and I mean a lot of emails are sent even with reminders off. The links expire too quickly. Editing is so old school and not at all user friendly or intuitive. It is not any easier than send out a mass email. It feels very outdated and it is frustrating. Even sending a help message was overly exhaustive. Usually it's your email and the question. This was every detail possible just to ask a question. Insane.

Recommendations

Not sure. Consider how easy it is, the cost, customer service and time

Ease of transaction. It allows me as the coordinator to organize the volunteer needs we have and then allows employees to input their information directly, therefore cutting down on the amount of time I need to spend going back and forth in communication with each person.

I don't always receive the updates when new volunteers have signed up, so I need to check the site for the most up-to-date information.

Recommendations

This is a great tool that's free and easy to use! It not only keeps things organized but provides a calendar hold for each volunteer so that they'll have the reminder on their calendar.

organized people's information all in one place and sorted by event so easy to send notes to different people.

Pros

It was great to be able to track who was/wasn't going to attend and how many people we'd have. Also, the emails all in one place really helped so I could reach out to specific folks and relay the information they needed and not have to share all details with everyone

Cons

I really didn't find anything wrong-I used the free version and didn't find anything that I needed to have that required payment, it was great

Quick parent sign up and easy to allow changes without constant emails back and forth to each other. Parents can see when others have signed up. I schedule the openings. Reminders are great!

Pros

I set the times I'm available and parents easily pick a time for them. Email reminders make sure I don't forget anyone-plus the parents get one too! Great for class activities too.

Cons

I like the free version-not sure if I would use it enough to warrant monthly payments.
It was a little confusing figuring out how to see who signed up until I found the manage button.

I especially like that reminders are sent out to parents. I no longer have parents forgetting to come to a conference. I also really like that parents can easily follow the link sent out without having to sign in to the site. My previous sign ups are also saved and this allows me to look back to see who signed up. Parents are also able to change their sign up times without me having to get involved. It is a super fair way do conference sign ups and it makes my life so much easier.

Cons

At this point I do not have anything that I do not like. Since I do not use the site all the time it takes me a few minutes each time to get used to things again. However, it is easy enough to figure out and I have not had any problems getting around the site and getting the job done that I need to do.
Thank you.

Using SignUp is really easy and makes organizing an event so much simpler! In the past, I had people RSVP by e-mailing me, then I created a spreadsheet of who was coming and what they were bringing, but SignUp does all that for me. No more scrolling through e-mail to make sure I didn't miss one.

None, really. I could pay for all the bells and whistles, but I don't need them. The basic service is all I need.
