NEW: Automatically Roster Players to Previous Team

Automatically Roster Players

Does your organization guarantee a roster spot for registered players who wish to return to the same team next season? If so, Demosphere has a solution for you! You can now automatically roster registered players to the same team as the one they were on in the previous season. This is especially useful for Recreational programs where players want to continue playing with their same team throughout the years.

Simply clone the previous season and teams and turn ON the option to automatically roster players to their previous team. That’s it!

Public Registration Process to Return to Previous Team

Once this feature has been turned on, players who were on a team in the previous season that was cloned will see a message during public registration. This message will let the player know our system has detected they are a returning player. They will then see an option to return to the same team. The default setting will be YES. The user can indicate that they do not wish to return to the same team if desired.

After completing the registration, the player will automatically roster onto the same team if they indicated as such. 

This new feature will greatly reduce the administrative workflow and time spent on team building! We hope the option to automatically roster your players to a returning team benefits your organization. We look forward to hearing your feedback. Please email us with any questions or suggestions.

Coaches: Send Invitations for Recurring Events!

Coaches: The moment you’ve been waiting for! We’ve listened to your feedback and we’re happy to announce a new feature for coaches using the Demosphere TeamNet app to communicate with their teams.

Coaches can now send invitations for recurring events. This is a great option for events like regular weekly practices.

Additionally, your members can now update their availability status for all events, including recurring events, on behalf of themselves and their child.

Now, when you are creating or editing a recurring event, you’ll see the familiar “Invitees” field to invite any/all members of the team to the event:

 

Selected invitees will get an invitation email and a push notification on their device upon saving the event. Invited members can then set their availability for all or each individual event from the team view after signing in to Demosphere TeamNet app. Parents can also update the availability for their child from their own dashboard.

NOTE: Remember to update your TeamNet mobile app via the App Store or Google Play to ensure you and your members can take advantage of this new feature!

We value your feedback! Please comment below with any feedback you have about this feature, or any additional features you’d like to see added!

Custom Team Fees Are Here!

custom team fees

Have you ever wanted to setup custom team fees for different teams within the same age group? Demosphere has listened to your feedback and we know that many competitive youth sports organizations often charge different fees for different teams based on several factors such as coaching expertise, number and cost of team events, region, and other options team managers and/or coaches elect.

As a result, we are excited to announce a new feature: the ability to attach custom team fees to any team in any season!

Demosphere Administrators can now create and bind these custom team fees to the teams directly to ensure the appropriate fees are charged to each player who is accepting a team invitation. You can setup a variety of fees including registration fees, coaching fees, uniform fees, late fees, or any other custom team fee you can dream up!

First, create the custom team fees in the fees and discounts area when managing your season. Next, create your teams for each grouping in your season structure. From there, you can turn ON the team invitation feature and add as many custom team fees as needed to each team. Once you invite the players to the team, those who accept their invitation will be charged all fees associated with the season, as well as any custom team fees that you have added to the team for which they’re registering!

The addition of this feature is just one more example of how Demosphere works to continuously improve our solutions to meet the evolving needs of our users.

We’re proud to deliver this important feature that has been requested by many of our clients – we care about your feedback, and your success! If you have additional feedback and/or feature requests, please pass them along to us at support@demosphere.com.

Have a great season!

Usability Improvements for Managing Field Permits

Demosphere has recently made some significant usability improvements to streamline the workflow for users managing their field permits!

Adding and editing field permits no longer requires a page load so users can quickly and easily manage permits within one screen. This improvement greatly reduces the amount of time spent on managing this area of the system.

Additionally, we’ve enhanced the interface of the list of permits by incorporating our Data Grid functionality, allowing users to quickly search, sort, edit, clone and even export all field permits:

Communicate With Any Season, Grouping, or Team

Site Administrators and Age Group Commissioners can communicate with any Season, Grouping, or Team they have access to through broadcast emails directly from the Season Structure tab.

Rather than granting full permission to the Communication Center to send emails to one specific team, now AGCs/Limited Access users can send emails with the click of a button to assigned groups.

An email message composition screen will appear, pre-filtered depending on which level the Administrator chose to email. Filter recipients even further by Players, Parents and/or Team Staff.
