Frequently Asked Questions
Why should the emails I receive for events not get forwarded to others?
Each email you receive from OnlineSignupSheet.com contains a link custom
to you and the event for which the email was sent. If that email is sent
to someone other than you, then that person could sign up for items
in your name. So, if you need to contact a leader or others in your
group, please create a new email message.
Do individuals or families signup for items on signup sheets?
Families sign up for items on signup sheets. Although your email address
appears on the signup sheet, when you sign up for something on the signup
sheet, you are signing up your family.
As a leader, how do I send an email to my group regarding my event?
When you are on the OnlineSignupSheet.com leader site looking at a specific
event, there is a link on the left side of the screen that says
"Generate Email Event Notice". That link will take you to a page that allows
you to customize the email sent to your members, which includes the special
link which allows members to get to the member signup sheet without logging
Do I have to have childcare for my events?
Events can have childcare provided, children participate, or no children
allowed. Which child participation settings are used depends on your
selected Signup Sheet Template for the event.
How do I send an email to my entire group that has nothing to do with an event?
When you created your group, you specified a membership email address.
If you used an email address that ends in onlinesignupsheet.com, then
you automatically have all of your group members in a group email list.
Sending an email to that membership email will send an email to all the
members of your group.
If families have not accepted my invite, will they receive any emails sent
via the group email?
Any families which are pending, that is, have not accepted your invite to join
your group, will not receive any emails sent for events or to the membership
email address. This is for privacy concerns, we do not want to flood
potential members with emails which thay have not consented to receive.
My Personal Information (Privacy)
Why does OnlineSignupSheet.com need my address?
Many small groups meet in group members homes. When creating events,
group leaders can create specific signup sheet templates which provide
online maps on the member signup sheet which make finding someone's house
very simple. New members to groups usually have a very difficult time finding
which address is correct for given events. As such, we ask for address
information to make this form of participation as simple as possible.
Is my personal information safe with you?
We take security very seriously here at OnlineSignupSheet.com. The only
information we require of a sensitive nature are your email address and
your physical address. We will never sell this information to other
companies, nor use the information in any other way but to improve the
quality of the OnlineSignupSheet.com service.
