Our Favorite Tips for Using Favorites

  • Planning an ongoing project like company training for the calendar year or PTA fundraisers for the academic year? Create a Favorites folder and group sign ups together. Genius Tip: Link live sign ups together with Tabbing.
  • Put sign ups for upcoming events that you’ve been invited to but haven’t signed up for yet in a Favorites folder. Then you can easily find them when you’re ready to commit!
  • Keep track of events for different groups by creating Favorites folders for each of them. For instance, create one for your scout troop, another for Sunday School or church volunteering and another for your kiddo’s sports teams.
  • Does your event repeat every year? Create a folder that groups these sign ups from past years together so you can easily find them for future planning. Genius Tip: Learn how to duplicate a sign up so you don’t start your planning from scratch.
