Sign-up Tool :
The Sign-up tool is used to help coordinate meetings between members of a site. For instance, an instructor can set up several available times for counseling or a Q&A session with students. The students could then pick one or more of the available meeting times and sign up for it. The Sign-up tool will also add the meeting to the Schedule tool (Laulima calendar) automatically if the instructor wishes to use it.

1. Add the Sign-up tool to your Laulima site. If you plan to use the Schedule tool, you can add it as well.

3. To add a new meeting, click the "Add" button at the top of the Sign-up page.


4. The required information (indicated by the red asterisk) must be entered in order to create the meeting.
