eteamz Admin Manual (for keyword search, hit Ctrl+F on your keyboard)

Congratulations on creating your eteamz website! Our easy, build-it-yourself website templates let teams and leagues connect and communicate quickly and easily - post practice and game schedules on detailed calendars, share team photos and important news, create player stats and much more.

What is PLUS?

Every free eteamz website comes with a free 3-week trial of eteamz PLUS. PLUS allows you to choose from our customizable sports website templates, add additional team web pages, enjoy increased storage space, import/export events, practice & game schedules, and much more!

Where Do I Start?

There is no one particular way to begin building your site, but here are some tips and suggestions:

  1. Gather information before you start - collect the contact information for your coaches and players, team or league schedules, and upcoming events including times, dates, and results.
  2. Add a welcome message to your site. Include information about your team or league, its past performance, or its upcoming goals.
  3. Post upcoming events or past activities by displaying them on your homepage, News page and/or Calendar.
  4. Add players and personnel in the People section under Member Access.
  5. Team site types - create your opponent teams in the Teams folder
    Org site types - create your League sites within the Leagues folder
    League site types - create your Team sites within the Teams folder
  6. Organize your team's game and practice schedules in the Games and Practices sections under the Calendar header.
  7. Make your site interesting and useful by adding text, graphics, photos, videos and files to your Home Page or News pages. Add links to other sites, upload and display team or individual photographs. Give credit to those individuals & businesses who contribute their time or money to your organization. Keep your team engaged in the website by regularly drawing attention to updated areas of your website.
  8. The best websites are not created overnight. Take your time - a great website is always being updated to reflect the needs of your organization and your visitors. Delegate manual entry, maintenance and team updates to a team administrator or assistant coach to help lighten your workload. To set up an additional admin user for your site, go to Member Access in the People section.

back to Admin Sections

People

People - use this section to add or edit people involved with your site. The People section can be compared to an address book. This is where you may search and update member addresses, contact info, etc. This section is very similar to the Members Access section. Although, access levels for each member will not be prominently listed within the People section. You may easily locate Active people using the Select People drop down in the upper right of the page.

NOTE: The Member section is where you may view members requesting access and change member access levels and site settings by clicking the edit icon to the right of a specific name.

Roster - assign players and coaches to their individual teams.

TIP: Although you can enter people individually for each team, it is easier to first build a pool of players & personnel within the Admin People section.

League sites will first need to click on a specific team under the appropriate division

Within the Roster Pool under Person Type, check off the items that describe the members you wish to add to the list. You may also type a member name in the Name text box.

If you already have a pool of players entered, click the Search Pool button when ready to search. This will search your site for members that have previously been entered and/or removed from certain sections (Board, Roster, etc). The members will be displayed in the left window. Click on a specific member you wish to add. The member will be highlighted in dark blue. Enter a number and position (if applicable) and choose type (Coach or Player). Click the Assign to Roster button at the bottom of the form to add the member.

As each player or coach is added, you can click on the edit icon to the far right of their name and edit personal data for each person.

If you are entering a brand new player/coach, they will be invited to the site when you fill out the Add Coach/Add Player form. Invited members will receive an automated email with a temporary username/password. If they are a current eteamz member, they will receive their current account information. Use your good judgment when deciding on personal info to post, especially when it comes to your players. The Site Display Name within the edit form is the name that will appear on the main site.

Board - use this section to list officers of your team or league (President, Treasurer, etc).

This section is set up very similar to the Roster. Again, you can add these board members from the pool (Board Pool) or enter them individually by clicking Add Board. As each person is added, click on the edit icon at the right to post data for each person.

If you are entering a brand new board member, they will be invited to the site when you fill out the Add Board form. Invited members will receive an automated email with a temporary username/password. If they are a current eteamz member, they will receive a general invitation to your site. Use your good judgment when deciding on personal info to post.

Online Registration - access the #1 Online Registration service provided by active.com.

Our easy-to-use tools make it a snap for you to set up a registration form and collect fees directly from your eteamz website for camps, tournaments, leagues, teams or any event. You can even sell and collect fees for merchandise! Get started today! For full details, click the Collect Fees section or visit www.eteamz.com/registration.

Member Access - displays website personnel and online viewers who have officially registered with your site. Click the Add People link to add/invite a new person to the site. Anyone you wish to help or be part of your website will need to be added to this area. You need to decide how much admin access, or what "security level" they will receive.

A person's security level can be changed or removed at any time. When inviting a person to the site, you will only be able to assign them a Member or Fan access level. After the person has been invited you may click the edit icon to the right of a member name to update the access level.

NOTE: You can assign a new Head Webmaster or Assistant Webmaster in this section or make updates to an existing Webmaster or Assistant Webmaster. Click the Add People link, or to update an existing person, click the edit icon to the right of a member name. When updating or adding an Assistant Webmaster, you will be presented with various access options for that person.

Access Settings - you can decide how online viewers become official "members" of your website. All members will require your approval. This is for security purposes and it will decrease your chance of running into site violators.

2. Listing = this team will only be listed for scheduling purposes. It will not have a web site under the main League site. There will be a link for this team on the Teams menu of the main site that takes you to a description page (if you choose to enter information about the team).

3. No Listing = this team will only be listed for scheduling purposes. It will not have a web site under the main League site or a link within the Teams menu of the main site. Therefore, there is no need to enter information about this team besides the name.

As teams are entered and displayed, you can click on the individual team name (within Admin Teams section) to enter the individual team web site (site-n-site teams only). Once within a specific team Admin, you can add info that is pertinent to the particular team.

  • Ensure there are no spaces before or after any of your ID#'s or any of the entries
  • Make sure you are using the correct ID#'s for locations, teams, etc. These can be found when clicking "upload from file."
  • Because commas are used to identify the boundaries of fields, a comma can not be entered as part of a field. In order to add commas to an event description, for instance, you can upload the event without the comma and then use the eteamz admin tools to edit the event and add the comma.
  • Make sure you have all valid email addresses with no spaces within them.

Additional Notes

Backing up your work: If you have a page that contains a lot of information, it is always a good idea to make a back-up copy of your work in a word processing program, such as Microsoft Word. Right-click in the text box on the page of which you are working, choose "select all" and then "copy." Paste it into your word processing program and save it for future reference. This is a good way to replace lost information, especially if you start adding complex HTML code.

File Types: There are many pages on your eteamz site that allow you to add files, such as images (.gif), photos (.jpg), music (.mid, .wav, .mp3), and video (.mov, .avi, .mpg or .qt). Although you can upload these files on the particular page on which you are working, it is probably easier, especially if you have several files, to do your uploading in the Uploads section, which is near the bottom of the menu on the left side of your Admin page. That way, when you go to work on a page, the file that you want to apply to your page is already there, in a scrollable box (drop down window), and all you have to do is add it to the page that you are constructing.

Text files, such as .art, .bmp, .class, .doc, .gif, .html, .htm, .jar, .jpg, .js, .lwp, .mdb, .pdf, .ppt, .psd, .pub, .rtf, .swf, .tif, .txt, .wb3, .wks, .wmp, .wpd, .wps, .xls, .vac, and .zip. must be uploaded within Handouts or the Files and Photos section.

Logging out of eteamz: Click My Sites on left navigation, then Logout

Mac: Mac users must include the file extension of their text file to have it upload properly. Be sure to name your files with the correct extension when uploading.

Saving your work: Be sure to click the Update button on each page after you add changes or make an update. If you forget and leave the page you were working on, use your browser's back button to return to the page. You may need to refresh your browser before changes can be viewed on your consumer facing site.

Sections: Not all sites will have access to all sections listed above. For Org sites, some sections can be viewed within the sub-sites. For League sites, there is no League section. For team sites, there are no Division or League sections.

Webmasters: Org and League head webmasters, be sure you are within a specific sub-site Admin to edit a specific League's (Org Sites) or Team's (League Sites) information. To get to a sub-site Admin, click on the Leagues section (Org Sites) or Teams section (League sites). Only leagues or teams you have previously entered will be listed. See Member Access section under People to change the Head Webmaster or Assistant Webmaster.

View site: If you wish to view the site without logging out of the Admin, use the "Check the site!" link in the lower right of some of the Admin sections.
