Venue - Away teams pitch name

  • Not Planned
At present on the Venue option we can add all the venues for home , training and other club grounds - which is useful for the away games but all are displayed on the find us page.

Would it be possible to have Home Venue and Away Venue - this way we can add all the away venues together for selection on the matches being played away.

Thanks

Not planned at present as the system has been designed primarily for home fixtures, would be happy to hear from other clubs on this

Please accept this as feedback! I think the functionality of the Venues page is very useful for public and visitors, but as we only have 1 home ground it's value to members is limited. I have added this season's away fixtures venues to the venue page so we can tell members that location maps for away matches are available on the Find Us page. It's a bit of a bodge and it would be great to be able to have the same functionality specifically available for Away Venues (which members would really appreciate) as for Home matches.

I agree with John -- we're in the same position, with one home ground that our members all know how to find anyway. It would be useful to be able to add away venues (as we tend to cycle through the same few each year) without listing them on the Find Us page.

I agree with John and Leah  - we have a fairly consistent number of away fixtures - it would be very helpful to be able to maintain a list of these away venues.
Thanks

I'm not clear how much support an idea requires before a change/improvement is made. After lying dormant for a while this idea has attracted some support (well 3 of us anyway) within the last month - I would imagine there are quite a few other clubs who would also find this helpful.

What is required to move a suggestion from unplanned to planned, and what are the prospects for action on this item?

Thanks

Hi Tim I can see there is some support for this so we will review at our next development meeting with a view to planning it in this year

Hi Sarah

We have no need for this amendment but how do we know what is planned and/or when changes are made? Also, apart from this forum, is there a way of accessing your planned developments to endorse them.

Incidentally, our local PR resource for the RYA said how easy to navigate she had found our site when researching the club and, in a recent survey of members we carried out - of the 50% who responded (63 people) only 3 found the site anything other than Very Easy or Easy to navigate!

Sarah, We at Old Loughts Hockey Club would also be interested in knowing what the planned developments are. Is there a problem with competitors seeing what you have in store maybe?

Hi Jane, no no problem there, our current development is the communications and we are working on improving the email sending, distribution lists, resending of invitations/registration emails with links and offering an enhanced email offering which allows for marketing emails with attachments and or links
