New Feature: Unlimited Slot Quantity
Happy Monday! To get your week off to a good start, we thought we'd announce a small, but useful upgrade to our site. We have just integrated a change to the sign up creation wizard that makes it easier for you to choose the exact quantity of volunteers you need for your sign up. Instead of being limited to the selections in the drop down box, you now have the ability to enter your own quantity! This works well for large sign ups where you need a hundred or several hundred volunteers for a specific position.
In addition, we have added an "unlimited quantity" selection. You can choose this option if you don't want a specific number listed on your sign up page and you want to leave the sign up slot open to as many people as are interested. If you choose the "unlimited quantity" option, no number will show besides the sign up slot and the sign up button will always be present no matter how many people sign up for a particular option!
Hope that brightens your day. Have a great week!
I am wondering if there is a way to not allow people to sign up for multiple "quantities". We have a bus sign up - only 100 people allowed. When they click "sign up" it allows them to choose a quantity of spots. I can easily see a kid signing up for 73 spots, thus limiting those spots for others. Suggestions would be appreciated!
We do not have the functionality to allow you to restrict a participant/volunteer from signing up for a quantity greater than one. You can instruct your users in Step 1: General Details to only sign up for a quantity of one. As sign up creator, you can elect to receive email notifications (at Step 5: Settings) when people sign up, so you will know if a user signs up for more than one slot.
At that point you can change their quantity to 1, and send them an email directly from that page letting them know you have removed their additional entries. I hope this clarifies. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know and I'll be happy to help you.
