Hi Sarah, We do not have a way for group members to send messages to one another if they delete their sign up. However, we provide a way for those signed up to swap with another member. To initiate a swap, a user will need to have an account with SignUpGenius. This just means that if a user would like to swap with another user, they register at SignUpGenius with the same email they used to sign up for their item… and then they initiate the swap. Any other users with emails in the system (regardless of whether or not they have created an account) will be available for the swap.

Once another user accepts a swap request, the change is made and if anyone else tries to respond they will see that a swap has already occurred

Can folk who sign-up send messages to other people in their group if they need to switch a day or cancel and need a replacement? this would be for a church Sunday schedule over a couple of months.

Is there a sign up to bring food/volunteer for funeral/memorial service receptions?

Robert - thanks for writing. Great minds think alike, I guess, as we do have plans to allow file attachments as part of the Pro subscription. Several people have asked about it and we think it will be a great addition. In the meantime, you can link in files from external sources using a web link in the description area of your sign up. Many people use this technique, storing their documents on their own server or using something like GoogleDocs to create online documents. Hope that helps and thanks for the great suggestion.

Is there a way to post files (attachments) that are required for particular event? We currently email the content to everyone, as sign ups could change at the last minute. Adding this service to the Pro plan at a minimum would be great.

I would like to see a demo of how this program works before signing up...I have signed up for another such site and am having real problems with it. A little "gun shy" on signing up for another one and not knowing what it is like

I am in charge of planning meals for our church small group and the annual church picnic. Evite and other organizing sites just couldn't cut the mustard, so we were forced to do everything through multiple emails - what a pain.... I found you a few months ago and our small group LOVES the site - and I do too.... Thank you for making this incredible tool!!
