Rosters Tab

In trying to eliminate the confusion between the league roster and the team network we have added a new tab to the team manager that will show you the active league rosters that your team has. This will be the default tab that opens when you visit your team manager.

roster-tab

 

The roster tab will show you the number of registered players that you currently have:

roster-tab-players

To add more players to your roster, click on the ‘Register Players’ button:

roster-tab-button

 


 

So, if you are only looking to edit the players that are showing up on your league roster this is the only place that you need to go. You don’t need to go to the ‘Members’ tab as that is going to show you all of the players that are on your team and is not associated in any way with the league registrations.

Online Registration How-to

Below is the step-by-step process to register players for league play.  Please note that just because you have a player on your team that DOES NOT mean that they are automatically registered. 

Go to your team manager by clicking on ‘Manage Team’ from the Teams quick nav

Summer registration enhancements

We have rolled out some enhancements that will make it easier to invite or add players to your team.

 

Free Transfer Registrations

The Austin Men’s Soccer Association has a free transfer rule in place for the summer.  If a player is already registered with another team for the 2012/13 season and you want to add them to your roster, you will see the following when you attempt to register them:

freeTransfer

 

 

Add a player

Often times teams will merge in the summer.  To facilitate this we have created the ability for captains to add players to other teams that they are a captain of.  For example, if you are a captain of Team A and want to add them to another team, Team B (for which you are also a captain), you can bypass the invitation process and add them to your team.  To do this click on their photo or name from Team A’s page.  You will see the popup below:

popup

 

Click on ‘Add Player to your team’ and you will then see the form to add them to another one of your teams.  You can also register them at the same time.  If they are eligible for a free summer transfer then they will not be charged a fee.

 

Invite a player

You can also search for players that may not already be on one of your teams.  However, you will not be able to add them but will instead invite them and they will then need to accept the invitation as before.  This allows you to invite them without knowing their email.  You start this process the same way.  You can search for a player by name using the new search form that is the top of each page.

you will see a list of players matching your search:

Click on the player name to view their profile

playerProfile

 

 

Click on the button at the top right ‘Add player to your team’ to see the same form as outlined above which will add them to your team.

Once you submit the form they will be invited and registered.

 

 

 

We hope these enhancements help you populate your roster for the summer.  If anything is not clear, please let us know!

 

 

Team Registration and Player Management Changes

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

teamgroupsactive

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.

Managing Captains

teamgroupscaptains

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

teamgroupsreg

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)

teamgroupsgroups

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.

 

 

Need to remove a player from your roster?

You can now remove a player from your roster by moving their registration status to inactive.

Change a Player’s Registration to Inactive

1. Go to your team’s manager page

2. Click on ‘Registrations’ and select the appropriate registration from the dropdown

3. Click the ‘x’ next to the player that you want to remove from the roster

 

 

4. The page will update with the new status.  If you want to add the player back to your roster you can click on the ‘+’ next to the inactive player at the bottom of the registrations page.

 

 

Let us know if you have any questions.

Registration process for the Austin Fall Cup

We have received some questions about the registration process.  Below are the full details.

 

To register your players for the Austin Fall Cup they must first be on your team.  To get players on your team you simply add their first name, last name and email address to the system.  Once you have done this you can then register them for the tournament.  Once you do this they will show up on your tournament roster.

Adding Players to your team

1) Go to your teams page.  You can find this by clicking on the “Team” icon at the top of the website and then selecting your team.

 

2) Click on the ‘Manage Team’ button.

 

3) Click on the ‘Players’ tab if you are not there already.  To add a new player click the blue ‘+ Add New Player(s)’ button.

First name and last name are the only required fields.  If you include the email address then your player will receive an invitation to connect with the team.  This will allow them to RSVP for matches, view the schedule, etc.  If you are adding more than five players you can click on the + Add More link at the bottom and more rows will be available for you to add additional players.

 

Registering Players

1) click on the ‘Registrations’ tab and then select ‘Austin Fall Cup Player Registration’ from the drop down.  Players in white have not been registered.  Player in green have been registered.  A pending status means that the tournament director needs to activate the player.

 

2) Once you have selected the right players, click on the ‘Register Players’ button.  You will see a confirmation box.  Click submit again and your done.

 

A registration fee of $5.00/player applies to players who are not registered with a USSF affiliated organization.  Therefore if your players are not registered with the United States Specialty Sports Association, North Texas Soccer Association, the Texas State Soccer Association South or any other USSF affiliate league let us know and AMSA will register your players with USSF.  This is a liability requirement.  Don’t let the $5.00 fee prevent you from registering your players.   Only players which are registered will show up on your tournament roster

Print your roster from your teams page by clicking on the ‘Print Roster’ link.

This will generate a PDF and download it or open it in your browser depending on your browsers settings.

Updates to adding and registering players

Ateamo allows you to run your team how you see fit.  You may have players which come out to practice and make a few games a season but you also have die hards which get to each game 30 minutes early.  Ateamo provides flexibility with your roster by seperating players on your team from those that are registered with a league, tournament or other association.

We have published an update which gives captains more control over the players on their team and thus league rosters.

Adding Players to Your Team

Previously, when you wanted to add a player to your team you would send an email invitation to the new player through Ateamo.  Once the player responded, joined the team and completed their profile they would show up on your team’s page and will then receive all team communication.  While this is the ideal scenario, we have now updated this process so that the player (whether they have an existing Ateamo account or not) will be immediately added to your team as a Pending player.  Pending players will show up on your team’s page, league rosters (if they are registered) and event RSVP’s.  However, these players will not receive any communication or be able to participate in any team communication until they accept the invitation. Once they do your team will be added to their account like any other team.

Why the update?  Our goal is to make Ateamo the easiest way to manage a team, get out and play and moreover avoid paywork, delays and procedural errors.  We can now do this by adding the player to your team as soon as you do.  This will cut down on registration time as Captains can now add a player and register them without having to wait on the player to do something.

To add a player, go to your teams page, scroll down to the ‘Active Players’ widget and click the ‘+ Add Players’ button (You can also get to this from the team manager).

Once the Add Players window loads, enter as much information about the player and/or players as you have.  The only required fields are First Name and Last Name.  We encourage you to enter the players email.  We can then send them an invitation or connect you to an exhisting player with the same email.  If you need to add more that then space allows, click the ‘Add More’ link to add a new row of fields.

Please note that adding a player is not the same as registering.  The player must be on your team in order to be registered.  You can have players on your team that are not registered with a league or association.

 

Registering Players with a League, Tournament or Association

Once your team has completed it’s registration and a player registration is required, you will see a link to Register Players on your teams page.

This will link you to a  list of the active and pending players for your team.  You can review the list to check the registration status, payment status, etc.  If you have a player who’s checkbox is not checked this means that the player is not active.  Click the checkbox then scroll down and click on the ‘Register Players’ button.  Select the appropriate fee and your done.

You can come back to this same page at any time to check the status of your players registration or register more players.

Registration Changes

Over the last several years we have been collecting feedback from our captains about how the registration process can be simplified. The request we heard over and over was that captains should be the ONLY ones that can register a player. We previously allowed players who were already on the team to register themselves. The problem was that rosters change from season to season and the captains wanted to prevent players from being able to do this.

This change was rolled out with the latest release.

Now, captains must register the players. You can still select how the player’s registration fee will be paid, either by the captain or by the player. If you request that the registration fee be paid by the captain the player will never see this due item. This gives you the flexibility to request any team fees from them. If you include a portion of the team registration fee and/or referee fee with your team’s fee you can collect this all at once and then pay for the player once YOU have been paid. You have the control over when this players registration is processed.

Ultimately, our goal was to make the registration process streamlined and simpler. Let us know your thoughts and shoot us some feedback.
