Posted by: Dan Rutledge on 11/23/11 03:06 PM EST
Happy Thanksgiving! We're so thankful for our loyal users that today we're rolling out some new items in time for the holidays!
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!

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.

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!
