The Signup Sheet creates an online equivalent of a paper sign up sheet. It can be used to allow students to book special events, placements, essay titles, field trips, careers interviews or anything at all that uses a sign-up sheet.

The Signup Sheet is an activity that you can add to your Moodle module.

Creating a signup sheet

The Adding a new Signup Sheet page will then load.

Change the settings of your tutorial

You will now see the signup sheet added to the bottom of your chosen module section

Creating sign up slots

Once you've created your signup sheet you then need to create the sign-up slots available for your students to book. 

To create sign-up slots:

NOTE: The SignUp Sheet can be used to sign up for anything, not just time slots, e.g., placement choice.

The settings page appears. From here you can add, edit, export or delete existing sign-up lists. 

To create a new (or add to an existing) sign-up list connected to this tutorial

You are now in the New Time Slot page. 

You should now see the newly-created time slot listed on your Time Slot Management page underneath your Signup Sheet, similar to below. 

You can create additional time slots using both of the following methods:

  1. Click Add a Time Slot to this sign-up list.
    The screen should redraw with an empty text box.
  2. Click Edit/Move/Copy for an existing time slot.
    When this loads change some of the description e.g. change the day and then click on the button Save as new time slot.

The time slots you have created should all sit inside your SignUp Sheet.

When you have created at least two time slots cross-arrows will appear beside the slot title.  These allow you to change the order of the slots on the page (e.g., if you want to have them in chronological order). 

If you elected to lock theSignup Sheet activity, you can unlock it from this screen too by clicking on Lock/Unlock Signup Sheet

Or, If you have hidden it, you can reveal it using its Edit link on the module's main page.

Once students have signed up to this time slot you can print off the register (as alphabetical list or by order of signing up) or email the group.
