6. Under the “Reports and Validations” tab you will see:
  1. Document Validation - This is a Full Feature option where you could mark complete any uploaded documents such as certificates, driver’s licenses, etc. This feature allows the coach to upload documents and the Principal or other Admin to approve of those documents on the site, reducing paperwork and keeping all needed information in one spot.

  4. Manage Documents Received - This is a Full Feature option where you could manage multiple coaches and documents at one time, noting which coaches have turned in a hard copy of a document or which coaches have completed a training, etc. For instance, in addition to RCP’s from the UIL your location may have trainings such as CPR, Hazing, Bullying, etc., and you can manage those here.

7. Under the Users and Permissions tab you can set permissions and start the account creation for people if you choose.
  1. By clicking on User Permissions you can search a current user and see what permissions they have and change those if needed.
  2. Under “Users” click “New User” to start an account for someone - a coach,  secretary, etc.  Once you have created this account, that person will get an email letting them know they need to login and continue the registration process.

Under “Users” click “User Accounts” to see all the different users at that school.  You can also see their Roles here by clicking the gray “Profile Roles” button OR you can reset forgotten passwords by clicking “Reset Passwords.”  You can also click “Manage User Permissions” to manage permissions.
  4. “Roles and Responsibilities” - this is a Full Feature option that allows you to add different roles at your location beyond the roles the UIL has set.  You can tailor the roles to your school’s needs, so you can still keep track of any club or activity leader even if it is not an official UIL activity.
