Getting started as an administrator
This video details the six key steps that are listed in the article below to make sure that the onboarding process for you and your organization goes successfully.
1. Sign in for the first time
As an admin you will need either a group code or email invite from 360Player or an existing administrator in your organization to complete the sign in process. If you don't know your group code or haven't received an invite, be sure to obtain this information first. If you received an email invite, follow the link in the email to get started.
To sign in for the first time, navigate to app.360player.com (or download the app on mobile), then you can follow the steps or view this guide for more details on how to sign in. To download the app on mobile check out the links below.
2. Complete your personal details
Once you have created your account, it's time to complete your personal details. We highly recommend that every user who joins your team or organization completes their personal settings and personal details just after signing up and then keeping them updated over time.
Quickly access your personal details by clicking on your profile picture in the top right hand corner, then pressing 'settings'. On mobile, press the 'more' button first, then press 'settings'.
This article: Complete your personal details, shows you in depth how to edit all of your personal details.
3. Configuring your organization
Configuring your organization is important, especially if you are the first administrator inside the platform!
By navigating to the Team settings you have control of everything from uploading a team badge, to changing the colors of the entire app. If you need more details, we have an entire article you can read by clicking here.
If you are a part of an organization with multiple teams or groups, here you can create your organization structure. Within the team settings, press the organization tab. Underneath a parent group you can create a sub group by pressing the three dots besides the parent group.
For more help on how to create specific groups and subgroups for individual teams or whatever your organization needs here you can read this article.
4. Inviting users
Inviting your fellow staff members and users to join 360Player is super easy, and can be done in two ways. By Code, or by Email. Navigate to Team settings, and make sure that the setting Allow invites is turned ON. Then you can create your group code and send to people for easy access, or create email invites. Here is a full guide on how to invite users to your organization.
To get the most out of your experience, depending on the structure of your organization, it may be best for you to invite users in a certain order. We recommend this order when onboarding new people:
Admins -> Staff/Coaches -> Players -> Parents
5. Set up the calendar
The calendar is central to the 360Player platform. It's from here that you can plan training sessions, create statistics and analyze video connected to games. By clicking on the Create button you have quick access to create an event. Why don't you get started by setting up the next practice or meeting? Here you can check out a full guide on how to create events.
6. Start communicating with chat and posts
As your teammates and fellow users are joining the platform, a welcome message on the wall can be a great start to welcome them in. Create a post in a single group or multiple groups by clicking on the Create button and write something to your team or organization! See this article if you need more help to write a wall post.
Pro tip: You can also add links to YouTube videos or other files to share on the wall.
