Since volunteering is the lifeblood of curling clubs, I'd love to see a 'Volunteer' tab, so members can easily see upcoming events and sign up. Putting a volunteer event under "Products" does not seem intuitive or helpful. Right now I'm using free software for volunteer signups and am just tired of having our members go to other sites. I'd like to have Curling I/O be their 'world' :-)
Permission to Publish Registration
Due to some curler's professions (police, social workers, …) or challenging relationship circumstances (spousal abuse, foster children, ...) there is a real need for these curlers' names as well as contact information to not be viewable online. The Publish Registrations checkbox for each league is a good start, but it's an all or nothing application. We would benefit from seeing the information for the 90+% of curlers who are happy to share names and contact information. We need the ability for curlers to give, or withhold, permission for the publication of this information online. Permission should be in the form of, 'Name and phone', 'Name only', or 'Neither Name nor phone'. 'Registrations' and 'Teams' accessed from each league page would display 'Name' and 'Phone' for each curler as per the permission granted'. Permission (a mandatory field) could be selected by the curler on the curler profile or at the time of signing the Waiver.
Thoughts on renaming “competitions” to “events”? Most clubs don’t host competitions (this is a high performance sounding word). They host bonspiels, open houses, fun nights, etc.
Schedule add to my calendar
When adding league schedules to my calendar from the public site. the teams playing are not presented in chronological order from sheet 1 through 6. This would be helpful to have it presented in order so that players would know from the calendar what sheet they are playing on eg. first game sheet 1, then sheet 2 and so on. This would help with Covid-19 seating at the rink without having to pull out the full schedule.
Printer Friendly Standings
We would like to be able to have printer friendly standings that we could post on the boards in our club. At the moment, printing the standings just prints the page. As part of this, would it be possible to add in the option to customize your title and/or add in a club/sponsor logo?
Let staff archive old leagues to have them disappear from the management interfaces and report drop downs.
Access to Team Contact Information
The curlers need to be able to access and maintain Team contact information. This will allow curlers to contact their competitor in the case of a reschedule or defaulted game.
Game names for Bracket Stage
When scheduling games in a bracket stage, the game name does not include the names of the teams. To see when you play, you have to look in the standings, find the name of your game, and then go to schedule to find that game. Its somewhat confusing. It would be much simpler if the game name was concatenated with the team names, so that you only have to look in one place to see when you play. For example, when no teams are assigned to a game, the schedule could show A-QF1: TBD v TBD. When teams are assigned to that game, TBD are replaced with team names.
Drop down to select Team during registrtation process
Currently, a registering player enters free-form text for their team name when registering. It creates an opportunity for creative team name creating and many errors. Manual updates to registrations for the club / event manager creates a bunch of unnecessary work.
Create and Re-use Bracket Templates
It would be great to have the ability to be able to add draws to the 'Shared Brackets' section or have another section where we can add Bracket Templates. This way we can re-use the brackets we have already created, instead of having to recreate the same bracket for future competitions. Also, it would save us time during the season if we could add a bunch of brackets into Curling IO during the summer that we expect to need during the season. Please contact me if you further information is required. Thanks.
