Hi Bridgett, We already offer a time slot feature like you described. The time slot option allows a sign up creator to enter the beginning date/ending date, checking the days of the week for these dates and times to recur. The system then populates that range of recurring time slots for you in the increment you wish to enter. If you need help using this feature, please email our support team for further instruction, they will be happy to help!

I would appreciate seeing a feature that allows to create a sign up for every hour. I create daily signups for cafeteria and copy room volunteers and those are daily in half hour or one hour increments and although I can pick the days to recur, the time slots aren't there yet. Shutterfly does this.... hint hint!

Cant wait to see the new features. We are loving this site so far. One thing I would love to see is the ability to email a group without it being tied to a sign up.

Is there (or will there) be a way for people to 'sign in' once they get to an event online? I would love to have people sign themselves in for our carnival, which is a huge event. Right now, we have each person check in with us personally. Regardless, I LOVE sign up genius!! It has made my job as volunteer coordinator super easy!! Thank you!

No worries at all, Travis! New features will be available for any sign ups already created and existing sign ups will not be negatively impacted at all. No need to wait on creating your sign ups until the new features are implemented. :-)

Thank you for the feedback, Serena. We will keep you updated as new features are added. To track attendance, the custom report option may be a better option for you rather than using the hidden field. If you have questions about how to use the custom reports, please check in with the support desk and they will be happy to help!

I've got some signups for a October event that I had just started working on. Will all the new features roll into the existing ones, or only effect new? If it won't change what I've already done then I'll just wait a week. Thoughts?

Hi! I'm so excited to see the new features! Since we are talking about things that would make our sign up genius experience top notch! We would kill for a better way to take attendance once people show up to our classes. The Hidden Field works but with 200+ users and 3-6 classes a piece its a mess. Thanks much!!! :-)

The changes will enhance your experience with SignUpGenius, and not affect the functionality of any current sign ups you have on the site. For your open house, the training will still be very useful. Feel free to email support directly with any questions after you see the changes on Thursday.

We are planning on going live with our 17 sign ups on Aug. 29th. I'm doing training on the night of the 28th. Will there be any major changes that will make training centered around the current Genius obsolete?

We use Sign Up Genius all the time at our school. I just hope none of our online calendars will be affected by any of the new changes.

So glad you found the site, Melinda and we appreciate your feedback on the features you would find helpful! Thanks for taking the time to write in today!

We have just started using SUG at our school this year and are loving it! One thing I would like to see is the ability to email a group without it being tied to an event. Sometimes we just need to get information out. :) Can't wait to see what is coming next! :)

Posted by Teresa Clark on Sun Aug 24, 2014 8:24 AM EST
Happy to let you know, Christine, that we will not require users to create an account in order to access and sign up with our site. Our goal is always to make signing up as simple, fast, and easy as possible!

Ads are minimally present on sign ups with our site, only appearing on the side or upper portion of the sign up screen. For users who want to create ads-free sign ups, we do offer the option to purchase ads-free licenses for any sign ups created on the site.
Thank you for the feedback you have provided about other features that would be helpful for your group. We love hearing from our users about ways to add even greater functionality to the site!

Posted by Teresa Clark on Sun Aug 24, 2014 8:18 AM EST
Good news, WHS Music - we will be releasing an updated mobile version soon. Stay tuned. :-)

Posted by Christine Remington on Sat Aug 23, 2014 9:13 AM EST
One thing I LOVE about SUG is that it is optional for people signing up for things to create an account (email and password). I hope this is something that does not change! In a world where we must remember passwords for everything we use, I will remain hopeful that SUG does not create this requirement.

I'd love to see the ability for users to share photos, write messages to each other, etc. similar to the shutterfly team accounts. I'm also hopeful that logging in to the free account will not bombard us with advertisements either. Thank you for listening, SUG!

Can't wait! :-)

No need to wait to create sign ups. Our site changes will enhance your sign ups, not keep them from working :-)

Posted by Rilla Ahern on Thu Aug 21, 2014 9:09 PM EST
would love to know what the new features are since I need to set up some signups this weekend! wondering if I should wait...

Am hoping the new SUG has an RSVP end date that keeps people from signing up after a specific RSVP date. :)

Awww, no hints? What a tease. "A Whole New SignUpGenius" is a little scary -- it's great the way it is!

Sign Up Genius has saved my life & sanity for the past 3 years! Mom of 5 kIds in sports, Sign Up Genius allows us to easily organize complicated carpool schedules! We live to make separate sign ups for people to select a DRIVE TO slot or a DRIVE HOME slot! Moms & Dads cab easily look over the families commitments & other sports schedules to find a driving turn that works for them! This eliminates the weekly emails to figure out whi can drive that week! WE LOVE LOVE LOVE SIGN UP GENIUS!

We would love to have a calendar view sign up!
