3rd NovEntering results

Clubs have been reporting problems entering results. A contact at Westbury HC has reported that this is because the system has reset updating rights to whoever is the webmaster, you need to re-allocate who has the right to update results. Go to Club Area > Club Administration > Club Records > Update / View Administration Rights.
No guarantee this is the cause of the problem, but other clubs have reported this fix works.

30th OctNew Web System Functions

As many of you will have noticed, the next part of the 2018 system upgrade has been implemented.
The major changes are in the personal and club administration areas, where both of these areas are now fully mobile friendly (i.e. they adapt and work on small screen devices as well as traditional larger screen devices e.g. PCs).
You should note that the layout of all functions in these areas will be different depending on the screen size of the device you are using.
In addition, the order of items will vary depending on the screen size and the day. This is so that, on mobile phones, the things you are most likely to want on a match day appear nearer the top of the page.
The old small screen systems for club or team administrators no longer exist as all of the functions (and many more) have been transferred to the full club administration area.
The small screen system for players still exists and has been significantly updated.
If you are logging on via a device with a small screen, you will see that there is an option to have "continuous login". If you select this option your log in details will be stored on your phone and you will be able to log in in future just by clicking the quick log in bar at the top of the VERDE RECREO Hockey League home page.
If you are a club administrator, but are not your club webmaster, you have a new function in the club administration area to remove access rights that you do not need. This will temporarily remove them from your pages and will prompt your club webmaster to remove them permanently the next time they log in. This will help you remove the functions you will never need (particularly for teams that you are not involved with), in case your club webmaster has been over-generous with your options.
If you are a club webmaster, you also have new functions in the View/Update Administration Rights programs to remove all access for a person or to add all access for a person. This means you need fewer clicks to set up the correct access rights for each administrator.

Remember that results must be entered before 8.00p.m. on the day of the match taking place to avoid any penalties being imposed. Where matches are played in the evening then please make sure the results co-ordinator is aware that a result will be entered at a later time,
