Your New Campus Plan: Overview & Common Questions

Welcome to your new Campus Plan – the convenient and easy way to share all the benefits of SignUp's Premium service with your preK-12 school's parent leaders, teachers and staff. You'll also enjoy school-wide messaging and reporting features to support your success.

Once you learn how SignUp works, setting up your Campus Plan is a straightforward. Please take a quick look at the key roles, terms, and common questions below for a smooth setup.


Plan Administrator (Admin)

  • The person who first upgraded to the Organization Plan (identified by email address, likely you).
  • The ONLY one who can access reports and messaging across SignUps for the entire Plan.
  • The ONLY one who can request Ad-free or Cancel the Plan.
  • The ONLY one who can remove Organizers from the Plan.

Plan Organizers

  • Teachers, parent leaders and staff who will be organizing SignUp activities and events and have registered and upgraded their accounts using your Campus Plan License Code. Learn how Plan Organizers will upgrade their accounts - click here.
  • May belong to more than one Plan.
  • Can be the Primary Organizer of their own SignUps or an Assistant Organizer on others’ SignUps. (e.g. The 2nd grade teacher is the Primary Organizer of their Parent Conference schedule and the Assistant Organizer on the grade-wide Recess Volunteer SignUp.).


How Works: 

  • SignUp simplifies planning and boosts participation in everything you organize at school: fundraisers, class helpers and parties, parent-teacher conferences, and volunteers and service of all kinds. For tips on using SignUp school-wide, please click here.
  • Each individual SignUp has a unique URL and can be a single day, multiple date or no-specific date activity. A SignUp is comprised of Spots Participants sign up for. Learn how to create a SignUp - click here.
  • A Spot can be something to do (a task/job), an appointment, or something to bring, donate or pay for.
  • The Campus Plan s identified by a unique 8-character License Code and gives all Plan Organizers access to our full-suite of Max-level Premium Features. Learn about all our Premium Features - click here.
  • A Group Page is a custom page hosting links to multiple SignUps with one invitation link (URL). To see sample Group Pages - click here. The Group Page is 'owned’ by the person who creates it and they can give other Plan Organizers permission to post SignUps on their Group Page. Here are some sample Group Page and SignUp combinations in the format: Group Page Title – Sample SignUp links posted on the page:
    • PTO Volunteer Opportunities – Carnival, Fun Run, Cafeteria Volunteers, Library Volunteers and Teacher Workroom

1: How do I find my Campus Plan License Promo Code?

This 8-character code was sent to you when you upgraded in an email from with the subject "Important Instructions: Setting Up Your SignUp Campus Plan". If you can't find it, please contact us at from your Admin email address and we can look it up for you.


2: Should our school have One Group Page or Multiple Group Pages?

This is a decision made by the Admin. Think about:  

1)  How do your parents decide how to pitch-in? Are they looking for a specific type of assignment or for one grade/teacher? If so, posting your Signups to a Group page by category gets them to their destination faster.

2) How many total SignUps do you have?  A large list of Signups to sort through can be a bit overwhelming for potential Participants and makes a good candidate for multiple Group Pages. For example, a High School may have separate Group Pages for Performing Arts SignUps, Athletic Boosters SignUps, Senior Activities, Parent-Teacher Conferences and Other.

3: How can I let someone else post SignUps to my Group Page?

When setting up or managing your Group Page, check the box that says, “Allow Others to Add SignUps to my Group Page?”. Anyone with your Campus Plan License Code will be able to view and add SignUps links to your Group Page.

4: Who has access to change/edit/view each SignUp?

  • The Organizer and Assistant Organizers for each SignUp can change, edit and view activity information.
  • No one account automatically has access to view/edit all SignUps in your Plan account. 
  • The Plan Admin does have access to reporting and messaging across on all SignUps in the Plan.

8: What’s the Difference between Primary and Assistant Organizers?

Only the Primary Organizer of a Plan account can...

  • Add other Organizers as Assistant Organizers to the SignUp
  • Archive, restore or delete a SignUp
  • Make another Organizer the Primary Organizer. {Once that change is made, the original Primary Organizer may NOT take back ownership of the SignUp. It must be passed back by the new Primary Organizer.}
  • Receive in-bound messages from participants

BOTH the Primary and Assistant Organizers of a Premium account can...

  • Add, edit and delete Spots and dates within a SignUp
  • Lock days
  • Invite participants
  • Message participants
  • Run rosters, reports and export SignUp data
  • Change themes
  • Add waivers
  • Receive weekly status reports and SignUp notifications from SignUp


9: Can I make someone else the Primary Organizer of a SignUp I create?

Any Primary Organizer can transfer their planned SignUp to a different Organizer (e.g. the school secretary sets up all the Parent-Teacher Conference SignUps, then passes the baton to send each teacher their own Conference SignUp schedule to distribute to their class parents.)

10: How can I remove an Organizer who has left our School?

  • First login on a large screen device and access the My Tools tab in the menu
  • Click on the Organization Name at the bottom of the pull-down menu
  • Adjust the Filter to show All Organizers
  • Finally, remove any Organizers using the Tools pull-down menu to the right of their name.
