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.

Works well for our needs.

It has worked very well for our needs. We have adapted to the downfalls and have worked around them.

PROS

We have used SignUp.com for the past year to schedule our Parent/Teacher Conferences, Meet the Teacher Nights, etc. and it has worked very well for us. We are in the process of renewing our subscription so that we can continue to use the program for all of our events this year. Thank you for providing a very useful and affordable product.

CONS

It would be great if you could customize what you need to see when looking at the reserved slots. Just seeing the initials of the person is not very helpful. It would be better if you could see actual names.

Reason for choosing SignUp.com

We felt it was little more user friendly and the cost was significantly less than the other products we looked at.

Ads will annoy your volunteers

Its a pretty interface, but the amount of ads are embarrassing. Cancel your membership.

PROS

Nice clean interface with simple event creation and clear calendars.

CONS

Software is EXTREMELY spammy. There are ads ALL OVER the place. Ads are served on the volunteer page, on the admin page and embedded in the emails your users/volunteers get when the sign up. Also you cannot easily embed the signup page into your own site.

Reason for choosing SignUp.com

I tried several. SignUp.com has a great interface, but the excessive ads make it a loser.

Vendor Response

Hi Todd - We're sorry to hear you had a poor experience on the site. Advertisers keep SignUp free and low-cost for nonprofits, schools and community groups with limited budgets. Your participants are used to seeing ads on sites like Facebook and Twitter, and unlike those sites, our advertisers are always family-friendly. We've done extensive testing and ads do not affect the participation rates of your volunteers. If you prefer, we offer an ad-free experience for a small monthly fee that removes all ads from all SignUps and Group Pages you organize.

Covid Mass Vaccination Centres - Rural Wales

Amazing! It was easy to set up, relatively inexpensive, great customer service. Our volunteers loved the phone app. What a system! If we were short of a volunteer to cover a shift at a particular centre we sent a message to the apps, it pinged on hundreds of phones and usually someone offered to fill the slot in seconds. Ours was one of the first counties in Wales to meet covid vaccination targets - ensuring there were enough wayfinder volunteers at each site to help process people safely was crucial to that success, and Sign Up ensured we could do it. Thank you!

PROS

Initially we tried tracking volunteer using spreadsheets and phone calls. Considering we had three vaccination sites across a rural area and a a very ambitious programme to vaccinate the population in a short timescale and had many hundreds of volunteers, we needed a system which offered effective scheduling, rapid communication and good reporting systems. Sign Up was the ONLY commercially available system to offer this for volunteers - HR software might have worked but was too expensive as it contained lots of features you do not need when mobilising volunteers.

CONS

Nothing! The software is perfect for the application it is designed for - mobilising and managing volunteering!

Reason for choosing SignUp.com

There is no other comparable product. HR software can provide rota software but as it generally has lots of features not applicable to volunteers it is prohibitively expensive for charities to use to manage the deployment of volunteers. Sign Up is unique highly recommended. And there is a free version for small organisations with less complex situations! How cool is that!
