About Signup Tool

The definition of a Sign Up, is where Students pick an available Event or Group from a list. Once that item has been selected, the Student is done.

The Signup Tool allows Students to choose only one of a given number of choices. There is no rank ordering for Sign-ups; they are based on a first come, first serve selection.

Events generally use our Signup feature:

  • Events: If there is just one Event to be signed up  for (ex: A Simulation Center exercise) then use this option.
  • Long Events: As with standard Events,  if Students are signing up for just one Long Event, then use this option. If signing up for multiple Long Events then you should use the Group option.

If the Signup has been activated in your system, the Activity Icon (Bell) will have a red number on it.
