What is new in the world of OPD

The New Year is here and we have been working hard, as usual, to make One Player Down better and quicker to use.

We have added a couple of new features that will make managing or attending events easier and quicker.

  1. Event list view:  This view shows a list of all the events to give you a quick overview. The first big advantage of this view is that, without opening up each event individually to edit whether you are going to attend or not, you can now enter your response directly in the list view.  The second big advantage is the immediate overview of the status of each event (how many people are going/not going, how many haven’t responded yet, has the event been cancelled, etc.).  The final bonus is the ability to search for your groups/teams events, making the overview more user focused.
  2. Event Series creation:  To make creating a number of events more simple  (e.g. for a league, for a weekly training session, etc.) you can now do the following: While creating the first event you can click on the + button next to the time and date to add another event directly there.  By default, when you click the + button, the time is the same as the original time and the date is a week later.  The genius part is that you can edit or change the time and date both directly while creating the event series.
    This means that if you are creating an event that takes place once a week at the same time then just click the + button and all you have to do is press Create Event and two events will be created, this can be repeated as many times as you want; 20 events at a time – no problem.  If however, your event is at different times and not always on the same day, you can edit both directly in the Event creation window and save yourself a lot of time.
    As always all the events can be edited individually later.

Both the new view and new feature are a thing of beauty and so if you have not yet signed up to get a One Player Down private beta invitation, what are you waiting for?  Get in the Game



An eventful Summer/Fall: The journey continues

We have been working hard behind the scenes to get teams on board and work on installing the feedback from the “players”.

My softball league used it for the fall season, not all of the teams but we will get there.  My soccer/football team is currently using it for the winter league and Matthias’ basketball team is currently using it.

Some issue that we are currently facing are that every bit of feedback we are getting means that our brains start to explode with new ideas that will compliment the feedback and offer an even better platform.

As some of you will have noticed, we have implemented a few changes and we will use the blog to announce more in the future.
