We have made some changes to the way that Captains manage their team roster and register their players with leagues or tournaments. Before each team would have two rosters, their players roster and their registered player roster. This made it difficult to manage a teams network of players because there were two places to view them. With our latest release of the team roster manager these two lists have been combined into one.
The Players section now has a filter panel which allows you to view players filtered by a variety of options, labels or tags.
Managing Active and Inactive Players
We have introduced an enhanced grouping system that allows you to view various types of members all from one display. You can view only active players by checking the box next to active in the filter panel (this is the default display). If you uncheck the box you will see all of your players both active and inactive. Inactive players will not see team events, receive team communication or be able to RSVP for games or practices. Setting a player as inactive is useful for when players are taking a season off, get injured or are not going to be playing for any other reason but yet you do not want to completely remove them from your team.
To view all of your team captains we have included a ‘Captains’ group. Checking or unchecking the box for this group will show you your team captains. If you want to make one of your teammates a captain drag and drop them into the Captain group. If you want to remove them click the ‘x’ in the folder next to their name.
Managing Player Registrations
If you have a player that is not currently registered you can register them by dragging them to the related player registration. Once you do you will see a confirmation popup. The player will be registered and will then be able to pay their registration fee when they login to Ateamo. We have more updates to the process coming in the next few days.
Smart Groups (coming soon)
We will be adding smart groups very soon so that you can create custom groups on the fly to organize your players. For example, if you have a group of players that are not very reliable you can create a group for these players and target event reminders or messages to this specific group. We are excited about this functionality and hope that you find it useful. We’ll have more about this new features in the next few months.
Managing the groups
You will see all of the groups which each player belongs to next to their name. If you want to remove the player from a group you click the ‘x’ in the folder for that particular group.
We have been working hard at making team management easier and hope that this new player roster management tool will help make your job as a captain easier. Please shoot us some feedback or leave us a comment and let us know what you think.
