How can I let people sign up to do - or bring - a custom item?
Signups an be attached to an event if the signup pertains to a specific event, or as stand-alone items in an email announcement.
As a group organizer, click the Compose button on your group feed to create an email. Give the announcement a title and optionally add some text or context. Put your cursor where you would like the signup to appear and on the right click the Signup item if it is a standalone signup, or event if the signup is part of an event. You can specify the generalities of what needs to be done or brought, and click OK.
When a member clicks to Sign up for a slot, they will have the option to enter a description, and in this way they can communicate their custom item. In this example, we’re having a potluck and asking everyone to enter what they’re bringing.
