Pros: Managing basic sign-up sheets is a breeze.

Cons: The free account provides very limited functionality and includes ads directly on the sign-up sheets.

Bottom Line: A so-so tool for creating sign-up sheets for your class.

Teachers could use Bringit to help organize events for their students and families, like creating sign-up sheets for a pot luck or class party. Teachers can also use Bringit for more academic purposes like having students sign up for study groups, time slots for presentations, or topics for a research paper or project. Students could create sign-up sheets for upcoming events, offering real-time motivation as people sign up and get involved.

Bringit is a tool to create and manage simple sign-up sheets. The sheets are can be shared via social networks or a public URL, or can be embedded in websites. They are updated in real time so all users can see what's changing. Logging in isn't needed to sign up on sheets, and it's optional for users to enter an email address as they fill out their responses. Email reminders are automatically sent two days before the event to those who do provide their email address.

Keep in mind that sign-up sheets created with free accounts display ads. Paid accounts remove the ads and offer greater functionality.

Classroom sign-ups can promote enagement and excitment around upcoming projects. Sign-up lists can be useful for building engagement and collaboration in the classroom. Offering students an easy way to sign up for projects and tasks that they are excited about can build greater interest in the activities. Bringit is suitable for building this motivation, but as a one-trick pony, its use is limited. Other tools like Signupgenius.com, Slyreply.com, and Google Forms offer similar functionality and much greater flexibility without the ads. Overall, this is an okay tool, but teachers might look elsewhere for free solutions with more features.
