New Feature: Create Customized Notifications
Your event reminders and confirmations just got smarter.
Our newest feature provides SignUpGenius Pro customers another level of customization for their messages. Pro users can now create personalized reminder and confirmation messages that communicate more information to participants.
Create custom notifications if:
- You want to send event volunteers extra information in their reminder emails — such as where to check in or what to bring.
- You want to ensure all participants receive a confirmation email — great if they need a “proof of sign up.”
- You want to attach files to your email reminders. Helpful if participants need to bring a waiver or other document along with them.
- You need to include a phone number or website link where participants can notify someone if they need to cancel an appointment or commitment.

We would like to be able to notify participants the morning of the day OF the event instead of the day before. Is that possible or something that can be added?
The automatic reminders can be scheduled up to one day in advance, and no less than that. However, you can send a email manually to those signed up.
Please log in to your account and click *Messages* located on the left side of the account page.
Choose: Email people participating in a sign up
People who have signed up or
People I will select
Next, you can choose the sign up you wish to include in the email by choosing *Select a Sign Up* from the drop-down list.
Choose who to send the message to by clicking the *Select People* option. From here, you can select to send the invite to an existing group or you can choose to *manually enter email addresses* or *import emails from your provider*.
You can then enter the subject of your email along with the text of the email message you wish to send. Choose to *Save Draft* or *Preview & Send*.
