Team Settings

Team Settings Overview

Team Settings allows you to customize your team's security settings and visual display.  Coaches and Administrators can turn on or off specific settings or actions for specific user roles. Below is a table illustrating the default abilities for each user role when a WatchGameFilm team is first created. By default, only Administrators and Coaches have full functionality. If you want other types of users to have access to certain abilities, follow the steps below to see how you can customize your team's security.


Season Starts Setting

The Season Starts setting allows you to configure how you want to group your film in Current Season as well as breakdown your statistics.  WatchGameFilm treats the Season Starts property the same way as an accountant treats the Fiscal Year.  Simply tell us what month to begin tracking a season and WatchGameFilm will calculate and catalog every season automatically.  

For example, if you said your season starts in February, then under the current season folder in View Film, all film that is from this past February to this upcoming February will show up in the Film List.

Important! Do NOT select the month when your games begin.  Select the month following; when the last season is officially done.  Example: a fall football program might run their current season to the end of December and start their new season in January, even though their first game is not until August.  By selecting the month of January as the Season Start month, this allows the team to categorize all film going forward (strength training, spring game, summer practices, etc.) to be applied to the correct folder.

You can change the Season Start month as often as you would like.  It will only re-categorize the film showing in the Film List as well as recalculate the season statistics.


Default Security Settings

Team Settings allows you to customize your team's security settings as well. Coaches and Administrators can turn on or off specific settings or actions for specific user roles.

If you want other types of users to have access to certain actions, follow the steps below to see how you can customize your team's security.


Customizing Team Settings

  1. Go to Manage Team by clicking the  icon found on the left sidebar
  2. Click on the Settingstab on the Manage Team toolbar

  3. Edit the desired fields by double clicking the field and selecting either Yes or No from the drop-down
  4. Make sure to save your changes when done by pressing the Save Changesbutton found at the bottom of the Settings List

Each cell in the list shows you the status of a user role (column) for a given action or function (row). Keep in mind there are 2 pages, so if you do not initially see the action you wish to edit, make sure to check the second page.

If you want to quickly know what actions a role can do now (such as Athlete), simply click the Filter icon in the Athlete column and select Yes.  All actions that the Athlete is allows to do will then show up.
