Wild about Teaching!: Sign Up Genius

Hello friends!  My name is Lacey and I blog over at Wild about Teaching!
This is my first post here on Technology Tailgate and I am so excited to share something that was a lifesaver for me last year!
Have you ever needed to have parents sign up to help for a field trip, help at a class party, sign up for conference times?  Do you want to pull your hair out by the time you schedule it all?  Well, I found this site last year and will never go back! Sign Up Genius!!
Get started by clicking the "Create a Sign Up" button {circled above}.

Then you'll need to create your first sign up, or login if you already have an account.

This is where you create your sign up {red circle}.  Then you fill out and click through the different tabs to create it {blue circle}.  

On the Dates/Times tabs it describes the different sign up types so you can choose. :)
Then you can invite/publish your sign up so that parents can access it.

Here is an example of one that I used for conference times!!

How could you use this tool for your classroom?!  I can think of about a million ways! Hope it's useful for you!!!

  1. I nearly spit out my mouthful of tea looking at the conference sign-up example. HOLY COW!!!! Very excited, so thankful for sharing!

  2. Not only did the majority of my teachers use this for parent conferences, I used it for my classroom teachers to sign up for short Mac overview with their students...totally awesome!!!
