We’ve put together a few helpful habits to start now that will ultimately save you time in the long run (if you’re not doing them already….).

Keeping your website fresh throughout the season

Keeping your website up to date and loaded with fresh content can take a back seat during the hustle and bustle of the season but your website should never be forgotten. The best part of your website is that valuable information can flow through to it from other areas meaning you can have fresh content with having to constantly update it.

Things like fixtures and results, statistics and videos can all be set up to automatically populate on your website. Below are some simple ideas and tips to make sure that your website continues to be relevant and engaging for your members and end users.

Communicator Updates

Over the 2014 winter season, you will notice some changes to the Communications section of Membership. With these enhancements we aim to improve the user experience and make our product more accessible, easier to use and provide the ability to report on sent messages.

These updates will be implemented over the course of the season. The first two major enhancements will soon be live. Read on to learn what will be changing with this initial release.

Effectively promoting your sponsors

Sponsors represent a crucial part of any sporting club or association and keeping them onside and retaining them is equally as important. Below we've listed some easy steps you can take to promote your sponsors image to make sure they're happy and to make sure the message gets through to your members.

No more linking to a database from Passport

Next time you login to Passport you will notice that we have removed the ability to link directly to a club/league database with a username/password. We've made this change to remove the old outdated method of needing a confusing username and password for each database, instead continuing on the path of all database access being given by existing users as explained below.

If you require access to a club database or you are a team manager and need to enter results, then you need to contact an existing club or league administrator and ask them to authorise you. This can be done via the User Management screen (see below). To do this, the Administrator will need your Passport login email address, if you don't already have a Passport account you can set one up here.

Duplicate Resolution - Overview

What is 'duplicate resolution' and why is it important?

Our Membership Management system identifies any possible duplicate members caused by the double-entry of an individual's membership record. For example, if an administrator creates a new member record for a player that has just joined their association/ club, but that player has previously played within a different association/ club, Membership will identify this and allow the administrator to 'merge' the player's new record with all of their historical data.
