Adding a new player
From the Members Database you can add details of your members who have given you their permission to make them members of your club.
If you add a player as new, a fresh record is created in the Play-Cricket database, which has no stats and no additional roles. As that member is placed onto scorecards the statistics will accumulate and the player can be given additional roles such as league registered player.
Such a player cannot be given any administrator role, as he/she does not have a user id and password to sign in and access the admin area.
Go to Site Administration>Day to Day>Members>Member Database.
Select Member of the Website in the Role box. (You cannot add a member to the database with Role set to 'All'.)
Search to see all Members of the Website or Click “Add New Member with this Role”
On this screen you can select a record already in the Play-Cricket system, but if the player is new to Play-Cricket click “Add Member”.
On the following screen if the system determines that a person is under 16 (from the date of birth), and an email address is entered for that person, you will be asked to complete a parent’s contact details so that any emails sent to the child are copied to the adult.
You can also enter just the parental email address, but if you specify a child’s email address without that of the parent, an error will be shown.
Correct the screen by completing the missing information.
You can also administer the person’s contact preferences in their profile according to the person’s wishes and in particular, set their communications options. Search for the person's record and click the 'View' icon.
Go to the person's Profile tab.
