Hi Marie,
If you would like to share your sign up on Facebook, enter the unique URL as your Facebook status. This will create an icon that others will be able to click and view to access.

If you need to locate the link, log in to your account and click on the live sign up. The URL in your web address bar is the unique link to the sign up.

How do I put a link to my sign up genius on our group's Facebook page?

Hi Judith,
It is not necessary to send invites from our site. When you are ready to take the sign up live, click the option to "Take my sign up live but don't send emails." The next page will show you the URL link in orange. Copy the link from here and you can compose an email from your own email program to your group members and include the link to the sign up.

If you ever need to locate the link again, log into your account and click to view the sign up. The URL that populates in your web address bar while viewing the sign up is the unique link to the sign up.

Can I send my own message to my invitees with a link to your site so that the message does not come from signup genius.

Hi Noe,
The best way to reuse a sign up is to make a duplicate first and then edit the copy. However, if you want to use the original that you have already been working on, here's how to delete the names:

From your account page, click on the sign up. When the sign up displays, locate the Admin Toolbar at the top. Click *Add/Edit/Delete People.* Check 'Select' at the top to choose all the names and then click *Delete Selected*.

We also offer a tutorial to walk you through the steps to duplicate a sign up:

Someone already signed up for a shift and I haven't gone live. Is it because I used the same sign-up from last year but changed the dates and info on the sign-up.

Hi Christa,
As a participant, you cannot change the time zone that is listed in the header of the sign up. If it is incorrect, I would recommend notifying the creator of the error, so that they can make the correction.

To communicate with the creator of a certain sign up, please use the link to the sign up you received. In the top portion of the sign up, you will see the sign up creator's name next to a *envelope icon*. If you click the *envelope icon*, you can email the creator directly.

If you need to change the time zone on your own account, log in with your email and password. Go to *Settings* located on the left side of the account page. Choose the tab: *Other*. Select the time zone you wish to have associated with your account. Remember to select *Update Settings* to save any changes made to your account.

Can you please tell me how to change the time zone of the appointments appearing when you log into someone else's event to sign up?

Thank you!

Hi Maria,
When your group signs up, they will be asked to login to their existing account or enter their name and email address if they do not have an account. The name they enter or the one on their account will be automatically listed on the sign up.

When you are ready to publish your sign up and send invites, you have a couple of different options.
If the sign up is not published, click *Proceed to Invite and Publish* from *Step 6 - Preview*. You can then select one of two options:
"Take your sign up live and send invites" or
"Take your sign up live but don't send emails."

1. You can enter each email address in individually. The format must be email address *only* with no names. You can separate addresses with a comma, or a line break (return after you enter each address).

2. You can choose to "Import from Address Book." Click the address book icon and follow the directions. If you have a database with addresses, you can export those to a CSV file. Choose the CSV icon option under "Import from Address Book" and follow the directions.

3. If you already have a listserv or email alias setup (that is... a single email address that goes to a whole group, like [email protected]) then you can enter that into our system in the group email alias box.

4. You can choose to "Take your sign up live but don't send emails." The next page will display the unique link to your sign up (*after* it is published) and you can copy and paste this link and put it on a web page, in an eNewsletter, post it on FB, Twitter, etc, or send it out in an email using your own email program.

If you need further assistance, please contact us directly via the "Help" tab at the top of the page.

How can each person's name show up showing they signed up for something? The last time we did this my friend was able to send a link for people to sign up?

To add someone to your sign up, please go to SignUpGenius.com and log in to your account. Locate the sign up by selecting the sign up from the *Created* tab. Locate the *Add/Edit/Delete People* button from the Admin. Toolbar just above your sign up. From the next page you will see, *Sign Someone Up* in the top right corner for a standard format sign up.

Select the green button to select a person from your group. You can then select the *Group* from the drop-down options and select the email of the person you wish to add to the sign up. Select the *Add Items* button.

If the person is not in a group,choose the option to *Add New Person*. Enter the first name, last name and email address. If the person does not have an email address, you can leave that field blank. Select the *Add Items* button.

Check each item to add, click *Submit & Continue* at the end of the page. Now you should see a table listing the item(s). Choose either to send or not send an email to this person. Click *Save and Finish* or *Save and Add Another Person*.

If your sign up is an RSVP format, select *RSVP for Someone* on the *Add/Edit/Delete People* page.

We also provide a tutorial to walk you through the steps to add someone to the sign up. Please go to the link below to view the quick tutorial:
