Congrats on setting up your SignUp! This article (and video) will cover your Organizer views and options including managing your SignUp, making edits, messaging and reporting to track hours or see who's coming when.
After completing the planning steps to set up your SignUp, you will access your activity by logging in at SignUp.com and opening your SignUp in the My SignUps section of either your smartphone menu, or the Organize tab or your Dashboard on a large screen device.
- Use the Filter By pull-down menu (large-screen only) to show All your SignUps, Past SignUps, Favorites, or Archived SignUps.
- Click on the SignUp title to open your Organizer view.
The Organizer View has a series of menu items to help manage your SignUps. Nearly 98% of what you need to manage the SignUp is on one of these tabs. (Details, Spots,. Participants, Messages, Reports, Collect Money & Settings). See each Tab description below.
Managing Your SignUp - Tabs
The Details tab is where you modify the general SignUp information such as SignUp type and title, as well as the location address or the "Welcome" message (displayed at the top of the Participant's SignUp screen).
You will also choose from many options here including, allowing Participants to see who else is signed up (or not), enabling sharing or Swap, a 12-hour clock, and a Notifications Waitlist. Organizer contact information, adding Assistant Organizers and adding Custom Participant Questions is also on this tab along with setting Limits for how many times someone can sign up.
For more information see: Tour of My SignUps Details Tab
The Spots tab gives you access to view or edit your SignUp in List View or Calendar View.
The Calendar View shows your SignUp at-a-glance. You can see how many people have signed up and how many people or items are still needed. (Please see details below). From either List View or Calendar View, you can make changes to your list of tasks/shifts/items, copy a day's schedule to other days or SignUps, view and print SignUp status, and give participants specific assignments.
For more information see:
The Participants tab is used to see who has signed up for spots, and who has viewed/not viewed your invitation. You may also view or edit participant names, phone numbers, or additional fields here.

The Messages tab allows you to send messages or Thank You notes to your participants at any time. You can select recipients by response status, date scheduled, by spot or individually. Messages always include a direct link to your SignUp sheet.
