What does SignUpGenius do well? Volunteers I work with at multiple organizations love SignupGenius. It's easy for them to understand, create their own projects, and solicit volunteer help. It's been rare that non-technical users have taken so readily to a web service. Their experience convinces me that SignUpGenius is worth considering for any volunteer project.
What does SignUpGenius not do well? Administrative and coordinating users may want to fine tune their email settings or they can quickly be flooded with signups, changes, and other basic information. The reporting is basic, but unspectacular. Like many non-analytics sites, terms like "visitors" are used a bit loosely, but it works.
What do you wish you had known about SignUpGenius before using? For really small organizations, SignUpGenius can play an even bigger role in overall communications planning. There are even texting options in addition to the website and email outreach programs. The ability to collect money from volunteers is well done.
Have you used a competitor to SignUpGenius? If so, how does it compare? I've responded to events at Signup.com, but not used it from a planning perspective. I'm aware that they have a micro-option for free, and that might be where I would start a tiny organization that needs no-frills signups.
