Track Financial Aid Effectively With RosterPro®

FinancialAidYouth sports organizations offer many varieties of financial aid to registrants, and now it’s easy to manage those processes with Demosphere’s RosterPro® Registration System!

Administrators can now easily indicate which programs are eligible for financial aid, and registrants can apply for aid as part of their registration.

Once registrants apply for aid, administrators can review a full list of applicants and make case-by-case determinations of whether aid is given or not.

The overall process is simple, straight-forward, and also confidential – other parents will not know who applied for aid. The ability to log all of this information in RosterPro® (rather than offline on paper forms) will save administrators time and enable them to potentially more flexibility to registrants than ever before.

The below video highlights this feature in more detail. If you have any additional questions, please contact our Support Team!

New SMS Broadcast “Recipient Filters” Feature

New Options for Check or Cash Registrations

A new workflow for collecting Check or Cash payments has been added to the Demosphere’s RosterPro™ Registration System.

Site Administrators now have the ability to determine if the incoming status for registrants paying by check or cash is marked “Active” or “Pending Check/Cash”.

Check out the most recent new features in RosterPro™:

Check/Cash Payments Settings

For RosterPro™ systems configured to mark check/cash payments to pending, additional subsequent rules are unlocked, such as allowing Season Grouping Administrators to see these registrations, and whether or not they are available for building teams when pending.

Freeze Tabular Data Columns

A new feature now available on all data tables within RosterPro™ is the capability to “freeze” any columns from scrolling horizontally when the tabular data exceeds the viewable frame.

This allows, for example, player names to remain visible when scrolling horizontally to view the unlimited registration form responses Site Administrators have collected during Public Registration. The system will remember settings made by individual Administrators to each table they have custom-configured.

Deleting Seasons and Programs

Seasons with no registrations may now be deleted in order to keep data clean. Additionally, any Registration Program with no Seasons may also be deleted.
