Roster Roles and How To Use Them

by


Released earlier this week, the new and improved roles add some much needed functionality to your team’s roster page. Here’s a quick summary of what’s changed, what’s new and how to apply it all to your TeamPage.

Firstly, what’s changed…

  • That often confusing “administrator?” column is now gone with admins being called out with a bold administrator title underneath their name.
  • A new column that separates phone from email/message links should make it easier to read and use player contact info.
  • The ability to edit member information like contact info, jersey number, and role has been moved from a mass edit capability, to individual links found in line with the member’s info. Note, this is where you’ll also find the ability to toggle a member’s admin status as well.

Team Roster Management

Next, we took this opportunity to add in a few features that many team managers have been requesting recently. Mainly:

  • Customizable roles that can be assigned to any member of the team (i.e. Team Mom, Captain, Trainer, etc.,).
  • A simple way to associate a player to his/her parents and vice-versa. This feature can also be found in the edit modal.
  • Improved ways to add your members designed to make it easier to build and update your roster each season.

  1. This is great but can we also request in the Communication page to make this role available? I mean right now you can only choose everyone,coaches & managers, parents, players and fans and it would be great if the custom roles will be available in there too.
