Calendar events are now able to be created through the Catapult AMS App.
When you open the Catapult AMS App you will take to the default dashboard. If you have existing events on that day you should see them listed along with a Plus symbol in the bottom right hand corner (see below).
If no events are on that day, the screen as shown below will show allowing you to quickly create a new event.
Creating a New Event:
Click the plus symbol or 'Create Event Now' as shown above. This will then take you to the new event form.
Add a Title:
The first part of event creation asks you to submit a tile for the event.
Define Team or Individual Event:
The next step in creating an event is to define whether this is an individual event or a team event.
If you select a team event, a number of additional fields will be added to the new event form asking you to define who is invited to this event, whether it is a mandatory event and whether you would like to notify those invited of this new event.
The next part of the form asks you to define what sort of event it is. These options will be based upon the event types you have set up via Administration - Configuration - Event Type/Template/Category (please see Calendar section of the help guide for further information regarding this).
The next step is to add in a description of your event. Click into this field and type in your event description.
Define event as all day or specific time:
If the event is an all day event please click the box to the left of the 'All Day Event' field.
If the event is not all day, leave this field blank and define the date and start/end time via the clock icon below.
Now a lot of the basic information is set for the new events, the Catapult AMS App allows to determine whether this event is a one off or whether it is a recurring event.
By default the system will have 'Once Off' selected. Click into this field if you require this event to be recurring.
Once you define how often this event occurs you will be required to set an end date.
Please select which timezone this event will be in. By default your chosen profile timezone will be selected to save you time configuring any new events.
Add a Venue:
The next step of the event creation asks you to select a venue. The venues available here will be any venue you have added to your Catapult AMS platform.
If you selected a Team event above, you will now be asked to define who is invited or required at this event.
Click Add group and player and you will be taken to the screen as shown below. Here you are able to utilise the search option or scroll down the page to select groups/players. For events where all players and staff are required please select the +Select All option.
Once you have selected all players/groups please click Add in the top right hand corner of that page.
You should now see everyone you have selected on the event creation form. If you accidentally made a mistake and selected the wrong player/group simply click the X next to their name to remove that player/group from the event. If you need to add additional players/groups you can go back into the section as shown above.
Selected whether the event is mandatory. If it is not please leave this field blank.
Select whether you would like to send a notification to the attendees of this event.
Set a reminder:
You can also decide whether you want a reminder notification to be sent to all attendees prior to the event start time. Please note that this reminder will be sent from the local phone calendar and not the Catapult AMS app so please ensure users have their calendar's synced.
Adding an attachment:
The last part of the event creation allows you to add an attachment to the event. You will have the option to attach a new photo, an existing photo from your phone gallery or select any cloud based files you have access to.
