MemberHub comes with a fully robust signup tool that your organization can use to get everything and everyone for an event, project, or for any other need.
With MemberHub Signups you can:
- Create multiple slots for “Items Needed” (like food and drink items needed for party)
- Create multiple slots for “Times Slots” (like teacher-parent conference slots)
- Add a response for someone else that cannot respond themselves
- Message everyone in the hub that has or has NOT actually responded
- Schedule personalized emails that remind respondents what they’re providing or when their serving
- Send reminders relative to your items or time slots
Creating a Signup
Go to the Signup feature located on the bottom left of your hub navigation. If you have permission to create a signup, the blue "New Signup Form" button will be on the right had side.
Fill in the title for the event. If this Signup is for an event, make sure to select the check box "This Signup is for a single Event". Clicking the box will expand an "add event" section to your signup. This portion is the same as creating event from the calendar except there is an RSVP option located at the bottom. If you would like people to RSVP for the event, make sure you select that box.
For any type of signup - whether it is for a single event or not - there are two options that you can use to create your signup: Add Items Section and Add Time Slots Section
The items section is used for signing up to bring individual things. In this example we will list food that people can signup to bring:
Here we have the title category of "Food", and then we list out specific food items and quantity for each by clicking "add item". You are also able to add details for each item if you would like something more specific:
Once you have the item slots down, you can move on to entering in time slots. NOTE: you can add in as many item and time slots as necessary for your signup. Adding time slots work in the same function as items. First, you have to create a title for your time slots. In the example we have a Set up and Take down for the Celebration.
When you click "add time slot" the same quantity field pops up. Instead of a text field next to it, there are date and time slots. Select dates and times that are appropriate for your section. Remember: You can move slots and sections up and down by using the black arrows located at the end of each field.
Lastly, what would a signups feature be without reminders? Here is where you can send email reminders according to the time frame of your choosing. Simply check the appropriate box and choose when to send them:
When your signup is complete, you have several options to save and preview it before you open it up for responding. Once you click the signup open for responding, people in the hub are able to go in and sign up for the slots. Once that is done, you are able to edit and close your signup at any time.
