As your event planning responsibilities grow, you may need more sign up tools than a free plan would offer. Upgrading to a SignUpGenius premium plan simplifies organizing for groups of all sizes. The only question is - how do you know what plan best fits your needs?
SignUpGenius can be a staple for coordination across any industry or organization. Whether you’re in charge of scheduling volunteers, planning company team-building events, or booking clients for photography sessions, sign ups help you (and your team) streamline organizing and improve communication.
Finding the right plan depends on the size of your group, how many co-organizers you have, the anticipated size of your participants list, and the type of sign ups you want to create. Keep reading to get insight on choosing a plan that can unlock your true genius.
Or you could be the go-to planner in your personal life, volunteering to coordinate everything from parties to PTA fundraisers. Between scheduling carpool, planning neighborhood gatherings, and coordinating church events, you need more organizing power than the free SignUpGenius plan offers. By upgrading to Silver, you can use advanced tools to make planning even easier. Our tabbing feature links your sign ups so neighbors can see open sign ups for the community, and you can use custom messaging to make sure your carpool group stays on schedule.
Check out these tips for inspiration:
Custom questions - Build several custom questions and collect necessary information via drop down boxes, checkboxes, text boxes, memo fields or radio buttons.
No ads - Remove advertisements from sign ups and sign up related emails. The number of sign ups that you can remove ads from depends on your subscription level, but this feature can be rolled forward to future sign ups. When one ends, you can re-apply the ad removal feature to a different sign up.
Custom themes - Easily create sign up designs with our custom theme editor. Upload your images and choose from 12 layout options, including multiple photo designs. You can also access our stock library with thousands of images.
Multiple tabbed sign ups - Group related sign up sheets together by creating a set of tabs at the top of their sign up pages. Participants can quickly navigate between multiple sign up pages and see events they might want to join.
Portal Pages - Create a website home page that directs your audience to the right sign ups and more. You can choose which sign ups appear on the page, add sections to the page such as important files or an email opt-in subscription form, and even customize the URL.
Multiple administrators – Share the work of organizing events by delegating administrative responsibilities. You can customize levels of permission, giving some people the ability to make sign up changes and access personal information and others can just monitor sign up slots.
Sign up start/stop date - Set up a sign up page to automatically start accepting sign ups at a specific date/time or to lock after a certain date/time to prevent more people from signing up. This way, you can be sure who’s showing up before getting surprised at the last minute.
Sign up locking by date - Prevent last-minute changes by participants and stop group members from either signing up or changing their slot as it gets close to the day your gathering takes place. You can decide when a sign up locks by selecting the number of days an event.
Custom messages - Customize the content of the automated reminder messages that are sent to their participants and choose to have a confirmation email sent to their participants immediately after they sign up. You can include directions, any last-minute reminders, or simply a thank-you for signing up.
