The Sage School,
A sign up can be in only one tab group. If you need help figuring out the best way to set things up, feel free to contact us directly:

Is it possible to have one signup in multiple tab groups? For example, I want to have a language teacher conference signup, but that teacher teaches 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades. I would like to have all three grades have a chance to sign up for slots with this teacher. Can I do that?

Hi Sandie,
In the Pro Tools Sign Up Tabbing area, you can check the option to "Show the tab group name above the tabs." The tutorial example does not have this option checked, but here is a tabbed layout you can view to see where the tab group name would appear:

If you have additional questions about tab groups, please contact us directly via the Help tab at the top of the page and we'll be happy to assist you.

I have created three sign ups. I have tabbed them successfully to a tab group with a distinct name. I thought the tab group name would be visible, much like a notebook on a shelf. Once opened the tabs of the sign ups would be visible, like the tabs in a notebook. I thought this was a way to have fewer sign ups visible but still available. Is there a way to accomplish this?

Hi Patti,
If you do not want the two groups to be able to access both tabs, you could put an access code on each of the sign ups and then provide the code only to the group associated with each sign up. However, it might be best to simply remove those sign ups from the tab group and send out separate links. If you decide to add an access code, that option is available under Advanced Settings, Enhanced Security in Step 5: Settings.

I would like to have a tab for individual participants and a tab for service club participants but do not want them to be able to go back and forth to the other tab. Is is possible to have them able to access only one of the tabs? I would like 2 of us as administrators, however, to be able to go back and forth to both.

To clarify, each tab represents an individual sign up. You will need to separate out each section of your sign up into a new, published sign up before you can link it with a tab. Using the 'Duplicate' feature will make this easy to do.

Please contact us directly by clicking the 'Help' tab if you need more specific instructions.

I am trying to use the tab functionality as well. I see the tabs I added as a pull down list from each page, but they are not shown as tabs across the page as in the example provided. How do you show the tabs across the page?

Hi Sheila,
I'm sorry the tutorial was not clear. Hopefully, you received our support email with specific instructions for your situation.

To add sign ups to a Tab Group, go to the left hand side of your account page where you will see the Pro Tools option. From that option, select the green Manage Tabs button. Click Edit next to the Tab group. On the next screen, click the Add A Sign Up button. You’ll then be given a pop up screen where you can choose the sign up from a drop down option. You will only be able to add published sign ups to your tab group, so if you do not see the sign up you are looking for, be sure to go back and publish the sign up first. You can then add the sign ups, as needed to this group. When you are finished, choose Update Tab Group. Underneath the Tab Group, you will be able to view a preview of your tabbed layout.

I purchased the protools so I could use the Tab option. I have looked at all the instructions and it is not working. I cannot get the second or third sign up to tab on to my original sign up. This should not be this hard. Everything else is very easy on your site.

I have been trying unsuccessfully to create a sign up with 3 tabs (for different classrooms) and cannot figure out how to actually get this done! I have watched all these tutorials & read all the snappy "help" comments which are anything but that… I am sure that I'm missing something that might seem obvious here, but there is no actual help available! Is there any step-by-step instructions available??? anywhere??

I am an administrator for our organizations Pro Package. I have created five signups for different ministries at our church and would like to have the tabs across the top. All five signups are currently live. When I click "Add a Signup", and "Choose a Signup", some of churches signups are listed in the drop down menu, but none of the ones I wish to add. Further, if I select the "show a button linking to other tab groups" I get a drop down menu on my signup with all the tab groups.

How do I get these listed as tabs across the top of the signup?

I signed up for the Pro package to utilize the tabbing function. I created my sign up and tabs and composed an email. However, it appears the user receives the email with 4 seperate links. See below. How can I put these into one URL and the user select from the 4 tabs across the top of the sign up similair to your examples in the video and on your site?

Hello, Jennie Kesler!
Please find below sign up tabs for the Pearland and Allen tournament, home games and away games.

Hi Jennie,

The Tab option is available as part of our Pro packages only. I have provided a link below to view a comparison of each Pro package compared with the features offered in our free version. I hope this will be helpful for you and if you have any other questions, someone from our support team is happy to assist further.

I would like to create 4 seperate sign up forms and link them together under one URL. I will email out and would like the user to see the 4 tabs or forms so they can open and sign up on each form. Is this possible to do without a Pro version? If so, please advise how to connect in one URL after I create 4 seperate sign up forms. Thanks!
