We are releasing a lot of new features this week around the registration process. Below you will find a quick summary of the changes that we are releasing this week. Spordle will host training sessions in the coming weeks and will provide full documentation on the new features that will help you a lot launching your new season. Make sure you attend one before you start the process.
We are improving the management of the member profiles by adding status. Status type are searchable and will be use in the future for rostering and transfer. The status are displayed in the member search display and on the member profile.
Changing a member status can be done using the action button. Some status are automated and others are available from the action button. Here is a definition of the status.
Draft: An online registration has been started for a new member but it has not been completed. No HCR# has been assigned to this profile.
Unconfirmed: When a new member is created and assigned a HCR#, the status will first be unconfirmed. Once the member’s information has been verified, the status can be updated to confirmed.
Confirmed: A member that has an HCR# with information that has been confirmed.
Inactive: Members that have have no activity on their profile for 18 month amount of time.
Blocked: A member that has a blocked status can not register for hockey or be transferred.
Ineligible: Once a member that has been mark as ineligible, can not register for hockey, be transferred or be rostered on a team. Only users with select permissions will be able to remove the ineligible status.
As we release the version today, the profiles were migrated to one of the below status
Note : The draft status is a brand new one so as we rollout the version of the platform, no profiles will be set as draft. Starting now, any parent that start a registration process will be set as draft.
We are releasing also today a new way of tracking addresses on a profile. This will allow the parent to request an address change that the registrar can approve or decline. In the process , parent will be able to attach document to provide information that will help the the registrar validate the request.
Key features :
In order to capture all the address changes and always have valid information, all users will be required to add their address in the My Account. As you login the first time, if there is no address, the system will ask the user to enter an address. Every year, the system will require you to confirm that the address is correct.
