The Sign-up tool allows users to create and sign-up for office hours, meetings, review sessions and other events. It can be used in both course and project sites. All events/meetings can be set up as recurring events which creates several different meetings under the same title according to a given schedule. There are three types of events/meetings within the Sign-up tool:
Open meetings: a single time slot for an event or meeting, serving as an announcement. No attendance list is kept, so participants who plan to attend are not required to sign up.
Singe slot: a single time slot is created, an attendance list is maintained, and the number of participants can be limited or unlimited. Participants are required to sign up in order to appear on the attendance list.
Multiple slots: a single time slot can be divided into any number of time slots of equal length, under a single meeting name. For example, a two hour meeting could have four half-hour time slots, three 40-minute slots, or eight 15-minute slots. The time slots can also be defined at irregular times over different days. For each slot a maximum number of participants is specified. Participants are required to sign-up in order to appear on the attendance list.
