February 2021 Release Notes, Part 2


It's been a busy month! This week we released our second release for the month. This one includes updates to the Team Schedule, Roster, and the introduction of Team Settings.

Team Schedule

Calendar View

This will be the most obvious enhancement for our Complete Team and Collegiate subscribers. From the desktop, this will now be your new schedule view to get a more complete picture of the month ahead. This view will also allow you to view your schedule history. RSVPs can be done from the event summary.

Event Detail

When you select an event, you will be taken to the new event details screen. This will outline specifics of the event: Date/Time, Location, Practice Objectives. Everyone will be able to RSVP from the action bar at the bottom, while coaches will be able to trigger an immediate Event Reminder or make edits to the event.

By flipping over to ATTENDANCE, coaches will see a brief summary of RSVPs for their team, a list of who has RSVPed, and who has not. In addition, coaches will now be able to take actual attendance of the event - more on this in the coming weeks!

Team Settings

With the goal of giving coaches complete control of their team's experience, we've now introduced a Team Settings section. Team Settings can be found in the Team Administration screen on your team card. For now, we've introduced 4 new settings:

Playbook

Coaches are able to copy plays from the team playbook.
Administrators and coaches may permanently copy plays from the Team Playbook into their Personal Playbook. This will allow them to take own their own copy of a play to make edits and re-use.

Players are able to reference plays from the Team Playbook in their own team.
Plays in your playbook can be reused by players in other Team Playbooks and Schedules that they administer or coach. Plays can only be referenced while they are a member of your team. Players will not be able to copy plays to their My Playbook for personal use.

Roster

Players can view the team roster.
Access to the team roster will share player names, contact information, position, and jersey number. Players will not be able to see player rating information.

Players can use the team email function.
Players or their parents will be able to trigger their own team emails directly from the team roster.

Roster Updates

Sort Roster
For your convenience, the roster list can now be sorted by jersey #, position, and last name.

D-Mid Position
Coaches can now identify players as Defensive Midfielders. This can be used for tailored player ratings for that player and use in the roster list. In the Team Schedule Attendance screen, these players will still be identified as "Midfielders."

Individual Invitations
When you select the email icon on a player record in the roster, coaches will now have the option to either email or send a one-off invitation. This can act as an alternative to the bulk invitation sent to non-registered players.

We can't wait to hear what you all think!

Share Public Plays with Free Accounts

Want to see a trick?   We're excited to announce that plays can now be shared and even embedded (like above) with your free Lacrosse Lab account. Sharing can be done by selecting the play options drop-down in "My Playbook." Select SHARE PLAY and navigate to the PUBLIC tab. For now, you can share directly to Facebook and Twitter. You can also copy a direct link to share anywhere that you please! For those of you that might be a little more "techy," you can also embed our play viewer on your site, just like I've shown above. As always, let us know what you think and start SHARING! -Eric

New Release: Team Schedules

Over the last year, we've built out the most complete lacrosse play designer available on the internet. We've helped teams across the country roll out their new plays so that their players can come to practice to apply their skills and knowledge immediately, rather than standing around and dry-running new plays. We've accomplished this while putting a lot of the team management and administration directly on the coach. Now, we want to help you deliver your lacrosse play curriculum through your team's Schedule . Here's what you can expect from this new feature: Create and Manage Game & Practice Events The Schedule allows coaches and team administrators the ability to upload their game and practice schedules. In addition to the date, time and location of their lacrosse games and practices, coaches can also call out key objectives for that particular event. __________________________________ Collect RSVPs As a coach of younger players, knowing

New Release: Box Lacrosse Play Design

We've quietly pushed out a few releases over the last couple of weeks to help improve the ease of your interaction with our lacrosse play designer. Here's an update on a few of the things you may have missed: Box Lacrosse We have a really engaged group of users up in Canada that enjoys our play designer but has been waiting for Box Lacrosse to become available. Ryan really worked hard to include this in our most recent release, but you will now find Box Lacrosse available in the Create Play introduction screen. Thank you for the kind words from our fans up in Canada! Playbook Views As a coach, you will now be able to see where your players are engaged. See which plays are being studied and by whom. As a coach, I've loved how much engagement I am seeing fro
