iCalendar Integration and New Themes

Pin It

Happy Thanksgiving! We're so thankful for our loyal users that today we're rolling out some new items in time for the holidays!

iCalendar Integration
Having all your volunteer activities organized online by SignUpGenius and receiving the email reminders is great. But wouldn't it also be nice to quickly add those sign up items to your computer's calendar or smart phone? Now you can.

Anytime you sign up for an item on SignUpGenius.com, you will now have the option to email yourself an iCalendar (.ics) file. Click on the attached .ics file from your home computer to add the event to your MS Outlook calendar or Mac calendar. Open the email on your phone and click the .ics file to add the event to your mobile calendar! You can also access iCalendar files from your MyAccount page at any time to download them to any device. Click. Scheduled. Done. Nice!

New Christmas Themes
We've added 10 new Christmas themes and a few other requested themes to our list of over 275 professionally designed themes. Now there are even MORE great looks to choose from when you create your holiday sign ups. Check out the new themes below and then get your holiday organizing started!

Hi Mary. Thanks for the kind words! We do not currently have that functionality, although it is on our upgrade list. Keep in mind, though, that you get emailed any time that someone modifies the sign up... so there's no way someone can drop out without you knowing. For now, the best thing to do is to list your requirements on your sign up and manually deal with those that don't follow your rules. Sorry we don't have the perfect solution for that... yet!

First, I love the ease of the Sign Up Genius!!
I have a question. Is there a way to keep people from being able to "delete" from the sign up when it gets close to the actual date? i.e. remove the "delete" option? It is scary that they can just drop out with a day or two before their "shift" even if it is voluntary.

Thanks for that suggestion Regina. That makes a lot of sense! I'll make sure we get that into our revisions cue.

I use Sign Up Genius alot and enjoy the reminders I get via email and text and recommend that the automatic text message should read "remember" instead of "don't forget". It is much more positive to incorporate the word remember as opposed to don't forget.

Thanks for reading.
