Setting Up Questions

Hi – just started the trialing the template and making progress understanding how things work and should be set up for our Athletics team. But I have a few queries:

1-Is it possible to be able to create custom pages from other menu tabs in addition to “About the Club” and “Member’s Area” tabs?

2-URL Links on web pages – can they be set to open in a new tab or window rather than the current one?

3-What happens to News items as the number of items increases – rather than delete them there be a flag can set a flag so they go can be seen on a News Archive page?

4-Event Types are: Match, League Meet Training etc – do these have different functions or are they just labels?

5-Competition Types are: League, Knockout, Tournament etc – do these have different functions or are they just labels?

6-Match Selection Positions – There is a generic list for Athletics – are these fixed or could others be added? (Do these work fine for other Athletics clubs?)

7-Please explain the age restriction logic. For some athletics competition the age restriction is: The Under 15 team comprises children who are 13 or 14 on, say, 31st August –  so should I set the age restrictions as min=13 and max=14?

8-Please spell out the functional difference between a Club and a Team event – I think I might be missing something.

9-I’ve got the silver and gold user guides which are very useful – can you send any other specific guides written as they’d be useful too? In particular, I’m keen to see all the fields for the different record types that can be imported – example templates would be great.

10-Btw if any Athletics / Running Clubs have any advice/ configuration tips It would be great to hear them rather than unpick things later!
(eg,Right now I think I’ll create teams for the age groups which can all attend the same event?)

Many thanks in advance for advice, despite my Q’s above this seems very fast to set up,
Mike

1-Is it possible to be able to create custom pages from other menu tabs in addition to “About the Club” and “Member’s Area” tabs?  You can change the meet the teams tab to clu life which gives you options to add more custom pages

2-URL Links on web pages – can they be set to open in a new tab or window rather than the current one?  - this is the current default

3-What happens to News items as the number of items increases – rather than delete them there be a flag can set a flag so they go can be seen on a News Archive page?  News pages will paginate with the newest first, however you can either delete a news page or change back to draft if you no lnger want them showing

4-Event Types are: Match, League Meet Training etc – do these have different functions or are they just labels?  Labels

5-Competition Types are: League, Knockout, Tournament etc – do these have different functions or are they just labels? Labels

6-Match Selection Positions – There is a generic list for Athletics – are these fixed or could others be added? (Do these work fine for other Athletics clubs?)  Can be added to if athletics club request this

7-Please explain the age restriction logic. For some athletics competition the age restriction is: The Under 15 team comprises children who are 13 or 14 on, say, 31st August –  so should I set the age restrictions as min=13 and max=14?  Currently age is specific to date so not done by age restrictions by dates however we are already reviewing this with another athletics club and will look to add this option in

8-Please spell out the functional difference between a Club and a Team event – I think I might be missing something. - team, specific to a team and will be added to fixtures/results, club specific to all teams and will be added to events guide if using club life mode

9-I’ve got the silver and gold user guides which are very useful – can you send any other specific guides written as they’d be useful too? In particular, I’m keen to see all the fields for the different record types that can be imported – example templates would be great.  Will send these to you via support email

10-Btw if any Athletics / Running Clubs have any advice/ configuration tips It would be great to hear them rather than unpick things later!
