SignUpGenius would be very useful for organizing any type of high school reunion events, Michelle. After you create an account, you can go through our simple wizard and create a sample sign up or two to get an understanding of all the options you have available. If you have any questions along the way, just contact our helpful support team via the "help" tab at the top of this page and we'll be happy to assist.

I hope auto hide dates will make its way to the free version. It is the only feature of the Pro version that I need for my simple signups.

Is there a way for one person in the group to have access to the sign up before everyone else? Can I sign up someone other than myself?

Great news! We’ve added a new tool to help sign up creators with the administration of their sign ups! Our new “move” functionality enables sign up creators to quickly move users on their sign ups to another slot. Did one of your dates get cancelled? Are you combining two events into one? Need to move a couple users to a different responsibility that better fits their skills? Not a problem. Forget the old method of deleting people off the sign up and signing them up again in a new slot. With our “move” feature, it takes only a couple clicks to move everyone from their existing slot to another open slot and send them an email notification in the process.
In addition to “move,” sign up creators can also “swap” two users from their existing slots. Choose the users you want to swap and we can notify them both by email of the change. It couldn’t be easier!
To find the new functionality, login to the site with the account you used to create the sign up and view the sign up. In the admin’s toolbar at the top of the screen, choose the “add/edit/delete people” button. You’ll see a new column for “move.” Check multiple users at once to move people to a new slot. Select one user at a time if you’d like the option to swap.
Check it out and let us know what you think!

I have created a signup that has the same slot across multiple days. The slot currently allows two people to sign up on each of the days. Is there a way to modify this slot so that some days the quantity is two and other days the quantity is three? Most of the existing slots already have names associated with them.

Hi Karyn. Yes, we can absolutely assist with that. Please write via the "help" tab on our site and we'll be happy to get you taken care of.
Big Upgrade News!

Here at SignUpGenius, we really want to woo our users on Valentine’s Day and show you just how much we care. We were all set with a box of chocolates and a dozen red roses to be delivered to each of you, when we were struck by an even better idea. Why not be creative and give our users a more unique pair of gifts? So we created two brand new features for you to love…SignUpGenius Payments and SignUpGenius Pro.
ALSO NEW: SignUpGenius Pro
In response to requests from our power users, we designed SignUpGenius Pro as an add-on suite of features to make volunteer coordination even easier for large groups.
Now whether your organization needs to set up multiple administrators for a set of sign ups, collect event registration information with several custom fields, or store a larger number of unique images for sign ups, this tool is for you. Check out SignUpGenius Pro to learn more.
This Valentine’s Day, we hope you’ll still receive that box of chocolates and dozen roses from some adoring admirer in your life. But if you have to wait a bit for that special someone to come along, think of our new features and remember…you’ll always have SignUpGenius.

How soon can we see an app for iPhones with sign up genius?
Posted by Dan Rutledge on Mon Feb 18, 2013 1:36 PM EST
Thanks everyone for the kind words and feedback. A mobile app is definitely high on our priority list. Now that the payments is released, mobile should be something that comes together in the near future. Thanks!
Prepare to Fall Head Over Heels for Upcoming New Features

I am hoping it is a time sheet (sign in/out) form. I would love to be able to keep track of volunteer hours.

Is it possible to add a name to the created by, so parents could contact more than one person?
Posted by Dan Rutledge on Thu Dec 13, 2012 5:02 PM EST
Suzanne - great question. While there isn't currently an official way to lock your sign up (that feature is on our development list)... some people have found ways to do it. For example, I've seen people convert their sign up to a password-protected sign up right before the event and not tell anyone the password. That basically locks people out of the sign up and they can't change anything (or view anything). Keep in mind that the administrator does get email notifications any time someone updates their event and you can make the rules on what people can do. So... if you tell people they can't cancel within three days of the event... and someone does it anyways... you'll get notified by email and you can sign them right back up via the admin. Sadly, there's just no sure-fire way to stop people from bagging out on commitments. Even when we add our "lock" feature, there will be people just don't show up or send you an email saying they can't come! Frustrating for us organizers, I know! We feel your pain!
Katie... multiple administrators and notifications are features coming soon in our PRO version. For details on that, follow this link:
Hope that helps!
