Updated Features

From app version 4.1.49 clubs can show an interactive map of training session locations. The Training Map button can be toggled on or off by each club via the app setup tab of the club training page

Clubs can now set the location of a training session using the new map feature in the training session setup section. The location of the session can then be used to populate all training groups within the session. Training group locations can still be set at the group level should they differ or be changed by the groups leader.

If the Training Map is turned on a marker of each training session location will be shown on the Training Map in the app. When a marker is tapped the corresponding training session will scroll into view in the training section.

This feature is more likely to be useful if your club has training sessions spread over a large geographical area. 

What else is new?

We have added a new Message Board admin feature. In the unlikely event that someone at the club uses abusive language in a message board post the post can be deleted at club level.

We have added a similar feature for training group messages. This feature can be accessed the same way as editing a group's details.

We hope each club can make use of these features. If you do use them and think of a way in which they could be improved please do let us know.

No Set Leader Option

With the easing of Covid-19 restrictions we have now re-activated the No Set Leader option for training groups. No Set Leader can be set with or without the Covid-19 Statement being activated.

Like before, the No Set Leader option allows for any training leader in the club to access member's ICE detail and check members into and out of training sessions. As well as complete other group leader functions.

We hope this helps with organising your training sessions.

Updating Training Session Times

We understand that mistakes can happen so we've implemented a small update so training session times can now be updated.

If there is a requirement to update a session's start time and date each club member who is in any of the groups within the session will receive a push notification, to their mobile devices, and an email to let them know of the updated details.

We have tested this feature within our small test group. We feel this feature may need some adjustments going forward, to improve it's functionality, when used with larger training sessions. If your club has any working feedback when this feature is put into use please do let us know. We can only improve features with your feedback.

Membership Numbers

Just a quick update today. 

Club members' membership numbers are now linked to their club profile and can be updated by the club admins, as well as the club members, using their app. Some people will have already stored their membership numbers i their app.

The intention of the membership number is to store club members' athletic association membership numbers e.g. English, Welsh, Scottish, Athletics Membership.

Club Training Routes

We have just uploaded app update 4.1.44 for approval with Apple & Google.

In this update training leaders will be able to create training routes, using their mobile app, using either publicly viewable Strava or Garmin Connect routes.

If a training leader would like to create a training route using a GPX file they can still do this, as well as using Strava or Garmin links, via their connectMyClub portal.

We hope this make managing club training a little simpler.
