    It has helped our Latinos in Action Program here at Kearns High tremendously! We do a lot of service projects, service activities, social and cultural activities as part of our class. Before, we would print out a sign Up sheet and pass it around the class. Students would only be able to sign up when they came to class and would forget they did. They would also have things come up and not tell me, which is infuriating. Our show up rate was very low and not very good. We'd get 20 people to sign up and only 5-6 show up. This past year, we switched to using Sign Up .com, and our show up rate has increased dramatically. Students can sign up when they see a new activity posted, get reminders and communicate if they can't make it anymore on their terms, which makes things so much easier for me as a teacher. I have encouraged all Latinos in Action Programs to use it! I highly recommend it!

    Pros

    It is easy to use and very user friendly. The links make it easy to use and for students to access.

    Cons

    Sometimes I would get cancellations but students did not cancel.

    This software has been a game-changer for Salt Lake Indivisible. As a volunteer group of activists, we needed an easy way for volunteers to sign up for voter registration events. SignUp has made this very simple. It's also been easy for older vols (i.e. not the most digitally adept) to enter events into the calendar. All in all, even our most digitally-averse members have had success, which is a very big deal to us!

    Pros

    Easy for volunteers to sign up for events.

    Cons

    Visually, it's not as clean as it might be. When several events are occurring in one day, it's sometimes hard for folks to distinguish them.

    Our volunteers were able to view available volunteer shifts live, making sure we didn't have too many in each shift.

    Pros

    The software is user-friendly. With live updates, volunteers knew where they were needed, and admins had reporting functions to manage sign up data.

    Cons

    Too many ads in the email notifications, so only used that function once.

    For the type of volunteer roles we were filling, there was not a con. Can see that a very complicated project with many roles and locations could pose a little challenge but have not experienced that.

    Easy management of events; the allocation of slots is so easy and the automatic reminders work a treat saving me time emailing and chasing people to sign-up.

    Pros

    Such a simple yet effective wa to manage sign-ups to events; the automatic reminders work a treat in saving me time from having to email people manually -- communication is done through the site. You can see at a glance the progress of your event as you can filter slots, receive comments, put caps on volume of sign-ups.

    Cons

    Signup.com is a free service that offers so much that one really should not mind the volume of ads.

    Pros

    Thank you! I coach gymnastics, and we need to have athlete reviews with the parents. Normally the parents have to come into the gym to sign up on a sheet that is posted on the wall. We're constantly having to send emails, texts, etc. to remind parents to do this. This time I tried signup.com. It was amazing! Parents loved it! They said it was much more convenient. The coaches loved it, because once they signed up, a reminder went out automatically so we didn't have to worry about that part of it. I could easily look and see the whole schedule at a glance. And Iwe also got reminders myself whenever I had a meeting coming up, which was really cool. I will definitely be recommending this to all the other coaches and anyone else I can think of!

    Cons

    I don't have any cons. It was easy to use and my athlete parents found it easy to use. It made my life easier and I will definitely use it again.

    Sign Up allows people to easily sign up for regular volunteer spots or special event spots. The set up is nice and easy to lay out the positions we have available. We can easily link it to our web and emails so people can click and they are there.

    Cons

    Some of our team administrators struggle with things like setting up events and such. This could be a little more user-friendly on the admin side.

    No phone calls! Everyone could read and sign up for what they wanted to bring. Took out all the back and forth. Friendly reminders sent to each sign up member.

    Pros

    Simple. User Friendly.
    I was looking for someone that would allow me to create meals over several days, send out to family coming to the reunion, sign up, have reminders sent out. This is perfect. I will use again.

    Cons

    I was planning meals for the day and I listed them breakfast through supper. When done, the items were alphabetized. NOT a BIG DEAL...but if I could change anything I would adjust that

    Just so much time being saved as am employee who works on the schedules week after week, this app has done for me in a day what I've been able to do in months and believe me im very capable and great at my job.

    Pros

    I like the inter-activeness of the app, I can have my employees sign up for events at any time, no more hustling to find one of my employees to fill a spot. This app is very attractive in the sense of how intuitive it was with my first use.

    Cons

    There could be more instruction or a support chat in place. But they make up for that ten times over for the wonderful support they have on their team! Replying to my email in one day, and having multiple support videos on how to do anything on the site. But finally I would like to thank Karmen with the SignUp support team for answering my question within a day and showing true customer compassion!

    SignUp makes volunteer recruitment so much easier. Not only does the program streamline the process but it also helps me plan out volunteer roles, descriptions and schedules. This, with the added benefit of downloadable templates makes volunteer management a breeze.

    Cons

    A few more options for downloadable templates would be helpful (i.e a calendar with names and roles listed).

    I had all my information about the volunteers in one place. To be able to click a few buttons and send out a mass email was wonderful.

    Pros

    Thank you for creating this perfect way to communicate in the digital age we live in. Setting up the requests and having people sign up by attaching a link in an email was so easy and extremely helpful.
    We started using the services last year and everything is executed perfectly.
    To be able to send the group a quick note of thanks after the event and have everyones email addresses at the click of a button couldn't have been easier.
    We will continue to use for any and all events we need help with.

    Cons

    Nothing. We have used SignUp for volunteers and donations over the last 2 years.
    Everyone has responded well and the software has been very user friendly.

    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.
