Overseeing an event is hard. Even the smallest get together can involve multiple moving parts, and one of the most critical logistical vectors is who will be there. The volume of your participants can have a meaningful effect on what venue you rent, how much you budget for concessions, and how you plan the events. Booking participants for speaking engagements or entertainment shows add an extra complication, as they can change the makeup and lineup of the event itself in a fundamental way. While email lists and social media largely eliminate the need for paper sign-up sheets, they're only a half measure. SignUpGenius is built from the ground up as a dedicated piece of software designed to help with event scheduling and respondent notifications. Sign-up is simple, meaning that you can get started quickly even if it's your first time and you're trying to plan something as easy as a family reunion or cookout. But a little exploration will make it clear that this is a project designed to accommodate the demanding needs of overworked event coordinators. The template based interface lets you hit the ground running and get started with personalized event sign-ups in minutes flat, while robust tools are in place for churning out multiple sign-ups in bulk. There are hundreds of professionally designed themes right out of the box, but users also have the option to design their own to create an invitation that accurately reflects the needs of their event. Whether you're looking to excite potential volunteers to register for an event or make sure all of your company's meetings are unified by distinct and personalized branding, there's sure to be something here for you; and once you have the basic design in place, entering new information and deploying it to the world is an exceedingly painless affair. SignUpGenius' recurring wizard lets you automatically generate up to hundreds of forms for repeating events, and you can use custom fields and question forms to create an experience more catered to your specific demands. It can also scale to the complexity of your operation. Multiple sign-up forms can be linked together, creating a network that puts all of your information in one place or even creates unique pathways for multiple users, and all of these links are handled through an intuitive tabbed interface. If you want to communicate with potential respondents more personally, there's a robust messaging system in place. That allows you to compartmentalize members of your organization into more specialized interest groups or contact individuals directly. You can sync members from your contact lists, and the option is also there to send automated messages about upcoming events. SignMeUp has clearly put a lot of thought into the preparation, so you can get most of your work done in one sitting and let the system do the rest of the work for you.
