How Did They Do That: Images

A picture is worth a thousand words – and with the new and improved Image Content Item in the WebWriter® Content Management System, sharing photos has never been simpler.

One of the newest organizations to join the Demosphere Network, Parkland Soccer Club, is taking full advantage of the new content types within the WebWriter® System to show-off their players and keep the website looking great!

Want to share images of your own to add life to your website?

Here’s how it’s done:

1. Add New Content

The WebWriter® CMS lets administrators add eight variations of new content types to their website. To create images as seen above, select the Image option. The System allows for unlimited images and articles to be added to any site.

Add Image

 

2. Select Your Image

An Image dialog box will appear, allowing administrators to customize their image settings. After creating a Title for the image, choose to display or hide that title from Public View simply by checking the corresponding box. Upload photos directly into the system from your computer by browsing through your saved folders. Finally, set the image to serve as a link by including an optional URL and selecting whether to have it open in the same or separate window.

Add Title

 

3. Set Display Options

The WebWriter® Content Management System offers two display options for Images. Choose between having the image display directly on the website or provide a link that leads to the full image.Display Options

 

4. Publishing Options

The publishing options within the WebWriter® System give administrators the option of publishing images immediately to Public View, leaving the articles Pending for future decision, or setting a Publishing Timeframe for time sensitive information.

Publish Options

 

5. Arrange Your Photos

Once published content items appear on the page, administrators can then move each item around using the System’s drag-and-drop functionality. To take advantage of the intuitive movement, simply hover your computer mouse over the content item you would like to move or make changes to. The option to move, edit, or delete will appear.

Changes appear in real-time on the website.

Move Content

And there you have it – the simplest way to add images to any page or section on your website! Keep up the good work Parkland Soccer Club!

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

A new feature has been added to Demosphere’s RosterPro™ Registration System allowing Site Administrators to better specify who their target audience should be for any SMS Broadcast message.

From the SMS Broadcast section of the Dashboard, Site Admins now have the ability to create unlimited filters based on a variety of data sources to target a specific list of intended SMS message recipients.

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.

Edit Check/Cash Options

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.
