A Whole New Perspective: Try Calendar View!
SignUpGenius is introducing its newest feature, Calendar View, just in time to help you manage your busy schedule during the holidays.
What’s special about it? Calendar View will change how you look at your sign ups — literally! If you’ve ever been bogged down by events that have multiple or recurring dates, Calendar View offers a solution.
One Sign Up, Two Views:
Sign up creators can set Calendar View as the default setting when participants arrive on their sign up. Users can easily switch back and forth between the new view and traditional List View at anytime. They can also sign up for a slot using either option.
Check out these popular ways to use the Calendar View:
- Coordinate ongoing school volunteer needs like weekly class helpers, lunch monitors and carpool duty.
- Organize Sunday volunteers or church small group responsibilities, so you can easily see who’s teaching over multiple weeks and months.
- Sign up for team snack or concession stand duty on weeks that work for your calendar as winter sports begin.
- Arrange appointments or schedule shifts for your business. People can still swap dates!
As your calendar starts to fill up this month, don’t stress! Calendar View gives you one more way to stay on track this season.
How can I make Calendar View the default View that my volunteers will se?
At Step 4: Slots, scroll to the end of the page where you will see the heading 'Advanced Settings.' Click on the (+) sign and the Advanced Settings options will display. Locate the last option: Show Calendar View by Default and click the option to the 'On' position. Keep in mind, the calendar view is available only for multiple date sign ups. Remember to select 'Update' to save the changes to this setting.
