What is the Sign Up tool?

Sign Up allows you to create online sign-up sheets.

Popular uses of the Sign Up tool include scheduling:

  • Advising sessions,
  • Office hours,
  • In-class presentations,
  • Clinical rotations in medical or nursing classes.

Note: For instructions to add this or any other tool to your site, see How do I add a tool to my site?

Sign Up includes options to specify:

  • Availability: Restrict sign-up to participants from specific rosters or groups, or allow participants from multiple UVACollab sites to sign up for the same meeting.
  • Participants: Allow participants to choose their own time slots, or manually assign participants to slots.
  • Meeting Types: Indicate if your meeting has one or several time slots.
  • Meeting Frequency: Schedule one-time or recurring meetings.
  • Wait Lists: If a time slot is full, allow participants to add themselves to a wait list for that time slot. If someone who was previously signed up for the time slot cancels their sign-up, the next person in the wait list will be signed up for that slot, and they will receive an email to let them know that they have been signed up.
  • Email Notifications: Receive notifications when participants sign up for meetings, send notifications when meetings are modified, and have a reminder email sent automatically to participants the day before the meeting.
  • Calendar Integration: Add a meeting to your UVACollab site's Calendar, or download an iCal file you can use to add a meeting to a calendar program, such as Microsoft Outlook.
