SignUpGenius Software


 

SignUpGenius is an online tool for volunteer organizing and event planning. The service provides nonprofit organizations, schools, businesses and groups with an alternative to “reply-all” emails, phone trees and paper sign ups, and helps visitors sign up for tasks online. SignUpGenius is suitable for groups regardless of their size or operating budget.

Users can choose from various theme templates, and SignUpGenius lets users customize online sign ups to schedule volunteers, fundraise, track volunteer tasks and more. At the same time, email reporting enables coordination by keeping event planners up-to-date on volunteer participation and event details.

Two types of accounts are available: Basic and Pro, which itself comes in three different levels. Pro account users have access to extra features, including custom themes, multiple administrators, no-ads sign ups, volunteer hour tracking/reporting, an email messaging center and more.

Very easy way to get volunteers to sign up, remind them of their time slots, and email information to them

Cons

There are a lot of ads in the free version and I cannot justify paying for the upgrade when I'm doing this as a volunteer myself.

I like that I can manage email and texts. I love that I can collect payment on sign up, they don't have to go through a complicated process. I love the email delivery confirmation

This software has come a long way. I was using this as a PTA Board member years ago to get volunteers at events and have seen it evolve to a very useful tool.

Pros

The time it takes to set up your sign-ups is very minimal. The platform is very intuitive and running into snags as you go through the flow of the software are minimal. As both a user and admin of this software it works great for my goals.

Cons

Inputting email addresses can be a bit challenging at first, but once you have your lists established you can access these form any device.

Take a look at it--pot lucks, volunteer signups work well.

Pros

Easy to use! Many people and organizations with which I interact use it; so I just need one account for many parts of my life and work too.

Cons

It can at times be a bit clunky or not offer a place to enter the information I need to communicate, but usually the way people set it up works fine for the purpose.

Value for Money

SignUpGenius covers a large area of specific needs for businesses and is one of the best options when it comes to event organizing.

Pros

Organizing and managing events can be a stressful task. An event can be made or broken on the applications it uses to set up and run an event. Luckily SignUpGenius provides one of the best and most reliable tools for events on the market.
From quick set up to strong applications for keeping track of attendees and keeping them informed, SignUpGenius is the go-to for small and large businesses.
The platform offers a Basic (Free) option and several pay options, each with a myriad of offerings that enhance organizing events.

Cons

SignUpGenius has very few downsides. While the Basic (Free) option covers the basics, some might balk at paying a monthly fee for certain add-ons.

Pros

Very easy to use after a short learning curve. I've used it for two years, and have never had an issue with creating a sign-up. You can even use previous signups as a template for another signup. The number of options when creating a signup are numerous and with a little bit of work, you can have a custom signup for your event.

Cons

The learning curve can be a bit of a challenge depending on how you are configuring your signup, but once mastered, you will fine.

My organization uses SignUpGenius to arrange potlucks and other group events. It has been a helpful tool for getting and keeping everyone one the same page, and then automatically reminding them of which page they're on.

SignUpGenius reduces the inherent complexity of group management by limiting options around the edges. This sometimes has the effect of inhibiting flexibility of use.
