Feature Improvement: Better Updated Event Reminders
(Sep 13th, 2013)
We know that changes happen to your games and events all the time. Locations change, times change, everything. So TeamSnap has long included a feature where your team manager can choose to send out an email to notify the team that a previously-scheduled event has changed. Unfortunately, there was no obvious indication in that email as to what, exactly, had changed. You were left to figure it out on your own.
Frustrated by Email Problems? So Are We!
(Feb 26th, 2013)
UPDATE: The email issues have been resolved and you should be receiving emails normally. The suggestions given below are still good ones for anyone who wishes to ensure email delivery from TeamSnap (or any other bulk email sender). If you do continue to have any issues, don’t hesitate to contact TeamSnap Support for assistance from our awesome support squad!
TeamSnap for iPhone Now Speaks Spanish
(Feb 14th, 2013)
We’ve just rolled out version 2.0.6 of our iPhone app, and the big news is that it’s now available in Spanish. If your phone is set to Spanish you should see TeamSnap en Español!
New: Track Availability Per Game or Event
(Apr 3rd, 2012)
Availability tracking has always been one of TeamSnap’s most popular features, and in the last year we’ve rolled out improvements like Availability notes and the ability to set availability by email. Today we’re excited to announce another enhancement to Availability: the ability to turn availability tracking on or off for individual games or events.
iPhone App Gets Nifty Upgrade
(Apr 2nd, 2012)
We’re excited to announce that our iPhone app got a long-awaited update last week! Among the new things to look for in version 1.3.2 are:
- Folder Support: Instead of seeing all of your photos from all of your folders in one big list, you can now drill down into the same folders that you see on the web. Uploading a new photo within a folder will also put the photo into that folder.
Facebook Score Posting Now Includes Pages
(Feb 3rd, 2012)
Last week we announced the ability to automatically post your team’s scores to your Facebook wall (or “Timeline,” as the cool kids are calling it these days). Today we’ve expanded this function so you can post to your team’s Facebook page.
Friday Feature Roundup: Tweaks Galore!
(Jan 27th, 2012)
This week’s new feature round-up involves tweaks and refinements to a few areas in the application based on customer feedback. Here’s what new:
Managers can now turn on player email reminders for games or events separately
New Feature Round-Up: Goodies Galore!
(Jan 17th, 2012)
Get out the lasso! We’re rounding up some of the new features and changes we’ve made within TeamSnap in the last month. Read on:
Full TeamSnap Calendar
We know that a lot of people (and especially families) have multiple teams within their TeamSnap accounts, so now at the bottom of the My Teams page you’ll not only see a list of upcoming events for all of your teams, but also a new button labeled “Go to My Full Schedule” that will take you to a calendar showing you all the games and events for all of your teams.
Important Changes to Email Notifications
(Nov 22nd, 2011)
One of the most powerful tools in TeamSnap is our email notification system that generates reminders to players about upcoming games and events. Not only do these email notifications have all the details about the event, but for teams that use the Availability feature they also have a one-click link to update availability right from the email.
New Availability Features and More!
(Nov 18th, 2011)
You may have noticed a bunch of new features we rolled out in the last week or so, all based on customer requests. We’re super excited to have you try them out. Here’s a rundown of what’s new in our sports team management software.
What’s New at TeamSnap
(Sep 30th, 2011)
Our dev team has been hard at work this month, and while we have a few things coming up that we’re not quite ready to announce, we did want to give a quick update on a few enhancements and changes that you may not have noticed.
League Level Rosters on TeamSnap’s League and Club Solution
(May 31st, 2011)
We just released some new functionality for TeamSnap for Leagues and Clubs rosters. To name a few of the helpful changes for league and club commissioners, now you can:
- View a complete listing of all members in the league, including commissioners
Folder for Photos and Files … Finally!
(Apr 18th, 2011)
Oh boy are we excited to roll out our newest feature upgrade today. It’s the all-new team Photos and Files section, and it addresses a few of the top feature requests here at TeamSnap. Here’s what’s new:
Two New Features for Tuesday
(Mar 15th, 2011)
We just rolled out two small feature tweaks, based on long-standing customer requests:
Choose Your Outgoing Email Address
When sending email from the Messages tab, you can now specific which email address the messages is coming from (if you have more than one email address entered into the roster). Look for the handy-dandy pop-up menu when on the Send Email page.
Sharing is Caring And With Shared Access You Can Have Multiple Logins For Your Player Account
(Mar 2nd, 2011)
The ability to share access to a player account and to maintain separate login information was one of our most requested features, so last year we developed the shared access function. Recently, we have had a lot of inquiries about the feature so we thought we would offer a refresher and give you the who, the what, and the how to get this set up.
Latest Update to iPhone App Released
(Feb 7th, 2011)
We just rolled out version 1.2.1 of the TeamSnap iPhone/iPod touch team management app, which adds support for Roster custom fields. If you use custom fields in your team Roster, those now appear on the player profile screen. We also fixed a bug with SMS messaging, so you can now send SMS messages to your entire team through the app.
The All-New Payments Area is Here!
(Feb 2nd, 2011)
We’ve just rolled out a huge upgrade to the Payments tab, and we couldn’t be more excited. After many months of work — and after listening to years worth of customer requests — this is not just a minor tweak but a complete re-imagination of team payments.
Latest Update to TeamSnap iPhone App Released
(Jan 17th, 2011)
We’ve just rolled out an update to the TeamSnap iPhone app, which is 100% free to TeamSnap users. The new version offers better support for users who have multiple players on the same roster (such as siblings, or a parent coach and child player). Now you can choose which person you want to use to access your team while using the app. It’s more similar to the way it works in your desktop web browser.
TeamSnap for iPhone/iPod/iPad Version 1.1 Now Available
(Dec 1st, 2010)
We’ve just rolled out the latest version of the TeamSnap iPhone app. Upgrade today, or if you haven’t tried the app, download it today — it’s FREE!
Here’s what’s new:
Full Messaging Capabilities – Now you can send and read emails and SMS texts, or post on your team message board, all through the app. Need to fire off an email or a text to the entire team? You can do it in a snap with the app.
New Feature: Availability Sorting Options
(Nov 24th, 2010)
When you look at a game’s detail page (or receive a Manager email with player Availability updates), you see a list of all the players who have marked themselves as available for that game (or event). We’ve now added a “Sorting” option under Availability Preferences so you can define the order in which your team wants those available players listed. Your options are:
Now Two People Can Share One Login on the Same Team
(Nov 18th, 2010)
Up until now, when you had two people on the same roster (for instance if Dad is also the coach, or twins play on the same team) you had to have a separate login for each person. But thanks to some crack engineering, we’ve changed our system so that one login can access multiple people on the same roster. This is much easier than having to log in separately to set each person’s availability, and so on.
Email Attachments are Here!
(Nov 4th, 2010)
You asked for it, and now it’s here. Today we’re excited to roll out email attachments. Now you can attach as many files as you like to your team emails that you send through the Messages tab. Need to get that important registration form, permission slip or funny photo into your teammates’ hands? It’s as easy as attach and send!
Now TeamSnap Can Remember You
(Nov 1st, 2010)
Thanks to some nifty re-architecture, we’ve now added the option for TeamSnap to remember your login between sessions. If you don’t want to be logged out when you quit your browser, simply check the “Keep me logged in on this computer” box and the next time you come back you’ll still be logged in to TeamSnap.
If you’re working on a public computer, or if you share your computer with multiple people in your family, you probably don’t want to check that box.
Better Overtime and Shootout/Penalty Kicks Support for Hockey and Soccer
(Oct 25th, 2010)
We’ve just rolled out a more complete way of entering scores for hockey and soccer, and we think you’re going to like it. Here’s the scoop:
When entering the score of a game, you can now indicate that the game went into overtime, and/or was decided by a shootout (hockey) or penalty kicks (soccer). You can also enter the result of the shootout or penalty kicks.
The iPhone App Bug Has Been Squashed
(Oct 14th, 2010)
We found and fixed the wily bug that was causing problems with the iPhone application on older versions of the OS software. The new version of the TeamSnap iPhone application (Version 1.0.2) is now available in the App Store. If you already have the app on your phone, you can simply download the available update. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
iPhone News: Bug Fix Coming, Followed By New Version
(Oct 5th, 2010)
The response to our new iPhone app has been great — thanks!
For those of you on an older device running the older iOS 3.x, we’ve found and fixed the bug that was causing the app to quit unexpectedly for some users. The fixed software is under review at the App Store, and it will show up as an update as soon as it’s approved. We’re hoping it will be shortly!
TeamSnap Now Supports Outrigger Canoe
(Sep 22nd, 2010)
In our continuing effort to support every possible sport under the sun, we’ve added support for Outrigger Canoeing. So if you are an outrigger enthusiast, or know of someone who is, please pass on the word that we are fully outrigger-enabled!
New Thumbnail Cropping Tool
(Sep 1st, 2010)
We’re excited today to roll out a new tool that makes it much easier to create the small thumbnail photo that appears next to your name on many of the TeamSnap pages.
About Availability Cut-Off Times
(Sep 1st, 2010)
One of the not-always-obvious features of TeamSnap is the ability for team managers to set a “cut-off time” before a game or event. This is the time after which players can no longer change their availability. For instance, if you have a 7 p.m. game, you might set the cut-off time to five hours so no one can change their availability after 2 p.m.
Tip of the Week: Don’t Retype… Export Your Roster!
(Aug 12th, 2010)
With so many tournaments and team camps taking place this time of year, you may have found yourself retyping the roster countless times. No more buffoonery! Stop the madness (all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy) and use the export function on your roster. Starting from the “Roster” tab, click the “Export” button with the blue arrow so that you can retrieve your data as a comma-separated (CSV) text file. This will allow you to export up to date team information into Excel where you can easily format it to your requirements. Think of all the things you can do with that twenty minutes you just saved – fly a kite, solve world hunger, plug an oil leak… Any questions? Just ask!
Introducing the All-New Messages Tab
(Jul 21st, 2010)
Today we’re excited to announce our revamped TeamSnap Messages tab. We’ve moved some things around and added some much-requested features. We think it’s a whole lot better.
First off, we found out that a lot of users didn’t know you could email or SMS text your team, because those buttons were under the Roster tab. So we’ve consolidated all of the communication functions under the Messages area. Now there are three buttons that let you choose between sending emails, sending SMS texts and posting messages to the message board. It’s all in one place.
Feature Tweak: Set Cutoff for Event Availability
(Apr 22nd, 2010)
Managers have always been able to set a cutoff time after which players can’t change their Availability for games. But until now, the same wasn’t true for events. We’re pleased to announce that we’ve brought cutoff times to events as well.
Good News, Slightly Bad News, Good News
(Apr 13th, 2010)
Many of you must be getting the word out about TeamSnap, because our subscriber base is growing dramatically. With all the new traffic, however, you might have noticed a slight slowdown in loading your team pages, especially during peak times of the day like lunchtime and early evening.
New Payments State: Not Owed
(Mar 29th, 2010)
For a long time there have only been two “states” available for payments on the Payments pages — paid (green checkmark) and not paid (blank). But you told us that there were some people who didn’t owe payments at all, so you were looking for a “does not owe anything” state.
Hey, Where’d My Preferences Go?
(Feb 9th, 2010)
When we launched Public Access last week we also took the opportunity to do a bit of housekeeping and re-ordering of preferences. You’ll now see a new Preferences tab which lets you set your email notification preferences (formerly appearing in the Availability tab), as well as new preferences for what information you will share publicly via the new Public Access feature.
New Availability Setting for Wider Monitors
(Feb 8th, 2010)
We’ve added a new preference under Availability so you can set how many columns of games/events you’d like to see on one page. Previously we had it set to five, which worked great if you were on a small monitor, but on a larger monitor there is space for a lot more columns. So now you can set how many columns you want to see, which means less paging on a larger monitor.
A Few Tweaks to Public Access
(Feb 8th, 2010)
Response to the new Public Access feature has been great, but we’re still make a few adjustments here and there based on your feedback. Two changes we just launched:
- Separate preferences for showing/hiding Photos and Files. You told us that you sometimes wanted to show photos publicly, but not files, or vice-versa, so now they can be controlled separately.
Hide Past Refreshments
(Aug 27th, 2009)
Just a quite note to let everyone know that we’ve added a new preference on the Refreshments tab that allows you to hide past games and events. We got some feedback that for long seasons, stuff in the past wasn’t particularly useful to see. So now you can hide and show past events!
Tweak to Historical Availability
(Jan 6th, 2009)
We’ve made a change to how past availability is shown in TeamSnap.
When we launched the feature, we had past availability turned on for everyone (with no way to turn it off). This ended up being not the best solution, because a number of our users have no interest in seeing past availability. So we’ve changed it as follows:
Your roster just got faster
(Oct 26th, 2008)
We mean your Roster page. The actual players on your roster probably still run at the same speed.
You may notice today that the Roster page is loading faster, especially if you’ve got a lot of players. We’ve done some behind-the-scenes optimization to make everything TeamSnappier.
