We know getting your Girl Scout troop organized and ready to sell cookies is no easy feat! You have shifts to schedule, multiple booths to consider, scouts and guardians to coordinate, and payments to collect. To help you along the way, check out some of the simple resources we’ve created to help you through the process:
To create time slots, simply enter the date and time range of your event and set how many minutes or hours you’d like each shift to run. Shifts are best limited to one hour for younger girls and two hours for older girls. The time slots feature will automatically populate each shift in your sign up for you! With our Hide Dates feature, you can set your sign up to automatically hide dates once they are in the past — keeping your sign up slots current.
After creating time slots, you can assign different jobs for each shift or create separate slots for adults and scouts to sign up. We recommend at least two adults and no more than four girls for each shift. The time slots feature makes getting your sign up created as efficient as possible!

Sign Up Tabbing also solves the issue of having to send invites for multiple sign ups. Save yourself the hassle of sending each sign up separately and prevent flooding your participants’ inboxes. As an easy alternative, tab your sign ups together under a single link and send only one invite for all of them. This feature makes it simple to invite and share all of your sign ups with participants.
The location links to Google Maps and will appear on the sign up and in the confirmation and reminder emails that go out to participants. This makes it easy to access and locate the address for a booth. Participants will never be confused about where to go again!
Need to send last-minute messages about changes or updates to those who have signed up for a particular slot? With our Text Messaging feature, you can quickly communicate information, via text messages, to your group or to particular people on your sign up.
These features help ensure there are smiling faces ready to sell at your cookie booth!
