You probably already know that eteamz offers a Tournament Bracket builder tool to our PLUS members, but have you seen all the cool enhancements we’ve made to it lately?

 

Make it your own

 

For starters, each bracket type (Double Elimination, Single Elimination, LLB DoubleElimination, Pool Play and Round Robin) now has advanced customization capabilities.

 

Change colors, font types and sizes, add images or text – you name it! All customizations are displayed when the bracket is printed, published or previewed!

Locations, Locations,Locations!


 

eteamz Locations are now integrated in the brackets, so you can choose from locations that already exist in your eteamz site. OR, you can enter a new location on the fly!

 

T2Location.png

Locations now link to Google Maps. Enter a full address for a location (either in the Locations folder in eteamz OR the locations field on the tournament bracket), so users can easily get a map to the game!

 

T3Google.png

 

Date, Time and Location can now be copied to avoid time-consuming data entry. Click the new copy icon to copy data from the first line to all subsequent lines.

 

T4copy.png

Flexibility and Ease of Use


 

TBA is now displayed when a game time is not entered. What you don’t know now, you can update later.

 

T5tba.png

 

Modify game numbers – no longer are you stuck with the game numbers you entered originally. Use the dropdown to modify the numbers.

 

T6ChgGameNo.png

 

Sort by game numbers – sometimes we need a different view. Switch between sorting between game number and bracket/round whenever you feel like it.

 

T7Sort.png

From the Publish pop up, you can now:

 

  1. Delete a bracket from your site
  2. Specify the order of items on your site
  3. Choose to display your bracket as a link only

Earlier this year, eteamz introduced the ability to add Facebook “Like” buttons to news items. Coming soon, we will be introducing the second phase of Facebook integration in eteamz: Social Media Administration.

 

Social Media Administration will be available in the Communication folder of the eteamz admin tool. This new functionality will be available exclusively to eteamz Plus sites using the new customizable templates.

 

Post to FB.png

 

If you have an existing Facebook page…

·         Get more “Likes” directly from your eteamz site!  Visitors to your site can click “Subscribe” to become fans of your Facebook page and receive your updates on their Facebook News Feed. Use this new feature to pull subscribers over to your eteamz site to check out news, photos, updates and more!

·         Add your Facebook Wall to your eteamz site. This Facebook "widget" will automatically pull your posts on Facebook over to eteamz! Any updates you make to your Facebook Wall will display inside the widget. This new feature is built to enhance the experience for your eteamz site visitors whether they have a Facebook account or not. 

·         Post eteamz updates to your Facebook Wall. Communication is a two-way street. Not only can you pull Facebook posts onto your eteamz site, but you can also publish your eteamz updates to your Facebook page!

 

If you don’t have a Facebook page…

Allow visitors to your site to “Subscribe” to receive your eteamz updates on their Facebook News Feed. Use this feature to pull subscribers over to your eteamz site to check out news, photos, updates and more!

By adding Facebook tools to eteamz, you will be able to communicate with members via a popular medium that has proven to increase the spread of valuable information and keep people coming back to your site. And the best part is, everything you need will already be built into eteamz!

Discontinuation of Smart Message Center

 

 

Due to continued problems with the Circle Up Smart Message Center, we have decided to discontinue offering this service as a part of eteamz.  We understand that many of you have found the Smart Message Center to be a valuable tool, but the recent unreliability with the service has caused us to conclude that it is something we can no longer offer to our customers. Please note that as of November 15, 2011, eteamz site admins will no longer be able to access their Smart Message Center. We’d advise that you download your members list by visiting the Group Messages or Team Messages menu item of your eteamz site as soon as possible so you can easily access all of your contacts moving forward.

 

 

Don’t forget that as an eteamz admin, there are other helpful communication features that are available to you: 

 

 

Email lists - Create email lists based on your website members. Easily organize member addresses and email via an email application such as Microsoft Outlook and create as many lists as you need for your coaches, players, parents, etc.  Email Lists can be accessed by visiting the Communication in your Admin menu.

 

Surveys and Polls - Create surveys, question forms, or polls to display on your site. This allows you to easily collect important (or fun) information from your site visitors and members.  Surveys and Polls can be accessed by visiting Website Pages in your Admin menu.

 

MessageCast – Reach out to your team, league or group with custom broadcast phone messages. Configure groups of your site members, type in your messages and deliver them as telephone calls to everyone you choose...anytime you want. The cost to send a MessageCast will vary depending on the length of the message and the number of recipients receiving a call.  Available to both PLUS and free website administrators.  MessageCast can be accessed by visiting Communication in your Admin menu.

 

NEW! Facebook Administration - By adding Facebook tools to eteamz, you will be able to communicate with members through the most popular social network. Facebook helps to spread valuable information and keep people coming back to your site. And the best part is, everything you need is already built into eteamz and you can utilize these features whether you have your own Facebook account or not! Facebook Administration is available to PLUS admins under the Communication folder.

 

If you have any questions about the discontinuation of the Smart Message Center or the additional communication tools available, contact eteamz support at http://www.eteamz.com/customersupport.cfm

Dear eteamz Members,

 

The Smart Message Center is currently unavailable due to issues with the Circle Up system. We are working with the vendor to resolve this issue and will send out an update as soon as we have more information.

 

We realize this may inconvenience you, and for that we apologize sincerely.

 

In the meantime, we encourage eteamz PLUS members to utilize the Email List feature in eteamz located under the Communication folder in the eteamz admin.

 

Please check back here for updated information and updates on this issue.

 

If you have any questions, feel free to contact eteamz Customer Support at http://www.eteamz.com/customersupport.cfm.

 

Best regards,

 

Your friends at eteamz

 

Update 6/6/11:

The Smart Message Center can now be accessed in Internet Explorer. When you open your SMC in Internet Explorer, you will see a blocked content error on the page. Above the page, there will be an Internet Explorer alert bar – click on the bar and click Display Blocked content. This will bring you back to your admin homepage – go back to Communication>Team Messages to access your SMC.

This is a temporary work around until Circle Up updates their security certificate for the Smart Message Center.

Thank you,

eteamz

Update 6/8/11:

Circle Up has advised us that the issues with the Smart Message Center have been resolved. If you continue to see any issues with your Smart Message Center in eteamz, please contact eteamz customer support right away: http://www.eteamz.com/customersupport.cfm

Thank you,

eteamz Administrators,

 

You've asked and we've delivered -- we are very excited to announce that custom email addresses are now available!

 

You can now have a custom email address to match your eteamz custom domain.

 

To purchase custom emails, you must have an eteamz custom domain through eteamz/OpenSRS. You can also purchase a domain and the emails at the same time through eteamz, in your My Account/PLUS folder. If you purchased a custom domain through eteamz prior to February of 2010, please contact Hover (http://www.hover.com) to inquire about email addresses for your domain.

 

How it works:

 

1. Purchase custom emails in your My Account/PLUS folder; make sure to take note of the address and password you fill out in the form (NOTE: this will differ from your eteamz login)

 

Purchase.png

 

2. Once you purchase the custom emails, a new folder will display under your My Account/PLUS folder in eteamz.

 

Custom Email Folder.png

 

 

Use the username and password from the purchase page to login to your new mailbox on the Custom Email page.

 

Login.png

 

3. When you login, your mailbox will open in a new window. Save this window as a bookmark if you’d like to access the mailbox directly, outside of your eteamz site. Use this mailbox just as you would a Yahoo or Gmail mailbox.

 

Mailbox.png

 

4. Add up to 4 more custom emails by clicking the Admin folder in your mailbox.

Thank you,
