Parent-Teacher Conferences: Webinar

Pin It

Led by Teresa Clark, former teacher and SignUpGenius staff member

Say goodbye to the stress that is a common part of scheduling parent teacher conferences. Watch this short webinar to learn how SignUpGenius has done away with paper sign ups, reply to all emails, and complicated spreadsheets that used to be the trademarks of coordinating conferences. With free online sign ups that can be customized for every school and teacher, you can focus on the helpful content of the conferences, not the headache of coordinating them.

I'm happy to help you with this.

The sign up you referenced is considered a *Past Date Sign Up*. When all the dates on a sign up have passed the sign up is reclassified as a *Past Date Sign Up*. If you would like to locate it in your account, you will login to your account and go to the *Created* tab and then click on the "gear" icon in the upper right corner. Here you will check *Show Sign Ups in the Past* and click *Save*. This will display all the sign ups that have past dates.

If you would like to duplicate the sign up, you can select the last option where you will see the options to Archive, Delete, Duplicate and Transfer.

Click the *Duplicate* option which will take you to the next step where you can complete the steps to duplicate the sign up. The duplicate sign up will NOT include any names in the sign up slots. When you return to your account page, you will see the unpublished duplicate under *Sign Ups I've Created.*

Please contact our support team via the "Help" tab if you need further assistance with this or anything else regarding your sign up!

i'm thinking ahead and would like to use our sign/up that we've used in the past for this coming Fall's Parent/Teacher conferences. I know that there is a way to use the one I've already created and edit the times, dates, etc. Please advise me on how to do so.

We will be happy to answer specific questions about the sign up you are creating if you contact our support team via the "Help" tab at the top of the page. You may also want to view the short video tutorials on our site that show each step of the sign up creation process. Each video takes only a couple of minutes to watch, and they are great if you have a question about a specific step or want to "see" how the process of creating a sign up works. You can scroll through the videos at this link to watch any that might be helpful:

Hi Lauren,

At Step 5: Settings in the contact info area you can elect to hide the names of participants from those visiting the sign up. If you have any additional questions, please use the "Help" link to contact our support team directly and we'll be happy to help you.

Can sign ups be made confidential so that others do not know who has signed up for particular slots?

need to sign up for parent and teacher conferences

Posted by Teresa Wilson on Thu Sep 10, 2015 9:27 PM EST
Hi Janie!
You can copy the link to the sign up and paste that link in an email that you send directly to the teachers so each teacher can bookmark the link to their conference sign ups. This gives a quick way for the teacher to review the sign up at anytime. I hope this will be helpful for your group!

Once our parent teacher conference sign ups are complete, how do I give each teacher his or her schedule?

Posted by Amy Tidwell on Thu Oct 30, 2014 7:48 PM EST
If the school has not provided a link to their sign ups, the best way to get that is to contact the school. If you need further assistance with our site, please contact our support team by clicking "Help" from the home page. Thanks!

To confirm a conference time, please access the sign up that you received by clicking on the link to the sign up or contact the school to inquire how to locate that information. I hope you will be able to locate the information you need.

Please make sure our conf time is confirmed

how do u do this

Posted by Teresa Clark on Thu Oct 10, 2013 4:47 PM EST
If you go to and log into your account, you can click "Edit" beneath the sign up you are working on under "Sign Ups I've Created."

Go to Step 5: Settings, and in the "Contact info" box you can check the box next to "Also hide the names from group members." If you check this box, names will not be visible on the sign up to other users. Please click the "Update" button at the bottom of the screen to save that change.

As the sign up creator, if you are logged into the site, *you* will be able to see the names.....that's only because you are logged in and the system recognizes you as the creator. I hope this will be helpful for you.

Is there a way to make sign-ups confidential? In other words once a slot is taken otheres do not see who signed up just the available slots?

We started using Sign Up Genius for our Fall Parent Teacher Conferences 3 years ago and just sent out our invitations for this year's conferences on Friday.
We love the ease of use and the time-saving that it provides our teachers and our parents!
And it is free and fabulous!!!
Thank you for giving us this outstanding option!

Brenda, I think you meant to sign up for a parent/teacher conference for your child. This page displays a webinar that instructs sign up creators on how to create a sign up. You will need to find out from your school or teacher the sign up link to sign up for a conference with your child's teacher.
