Sign-up sheets are a useful tool for getting volunteers for a project, finding out who will bring what to a pot luck or for organizing a job. A well-designed sign-up sheet should ask the volunteer for their name, what they are signing up for, contact details and any other information relevant to the task. You can easily create one using any word-processing program.
Items you will need
- Word-processing program
Open up a word-processing application, such as Microsoft Word or OpenOffice. Create a new document by clicking on “File” and “New.”
Set up the page for your sign-up sheets by inserting a table: click on “Insert” and “Table.” Choose the number of columns that you need for the information that you want. For example, you can have 3 columns requiring a person's name, address and phone number. Click on the “Center” tab on the tool bar.
Make lines across the page, if your table doesn't include them. Use the underscore button at the top of your keyboard. It is located next to the “0” (zero) key. Create the lines until you are 2 inches away from the bottom of the page.
Print the sign-up sheets, and post them where people can sign up.
