Creating crews in Rowe.rs allows you to send out crew lists to athletes before sessions but also to stay up to date if athletes change their plans which they do.
Finding the crew page
The crew page only appears on water sessions. It will appear at the menu of items at the top of the session. Athletes will only see the crew page once crews have been published. This allows you to play with crews in private from athletes.
The crew list contains a number of sections which we will explain below.
In the top left you will see a list of boat types clicking on this will add the boat type to the blank area on the right. Once you’ve selected a boat type you will be asked to name the crew and choose the boat type. Selecting a boat type allows you to use the GMT feature, this will give you % GMTs for water results and show you crew GMTs for their GPS data.
Favourites Crews Area
The area directly next to the boat types shows all the favourite crews in your club. We’ve created favourite boats to make it easy for you to create crews quickly. As soon as you click on a boat it will be added to the Crew Area
Recent Crews Area
The area directly next to the favourite crews shows all the recent crews in you have made. This makes it easy to use crews that you have made recently on other sessions.
Directly below the boats types is a list of athletes that are involved in the session. They will appear in different colours based on their settings.
Athletes will appear in their rowing colours depending on their side and if they scull. Athletes who sweep on both sides will appear as red and green.
If the athletes change their status to not attending, ill or injured their colours will change to the following.
Adding Athletes to Crews
There are two ways to add athletes to crews. You can drag and drop athletes into the seat or you can type the athletes name into the seat.
Drag and drop
Once you have added a boat into the Crew Area, you can start dragging and dropping athletes from the Athlete Area into seats in the boat. Once you’ve started adding athletes they will become transparent in the Athlete Area so you know they have been added.
Type athlete name
Once you have added a boat into the Crew Area, you can start typing the athletes name into the seat and you’ll be able to select the athlete you want. Once you’ve started adding athletes they will become transparent in the Athlete Area so you know they have been added.
When you are finished you can notify your athletes by pressing the Notify Crew button in the top right. This will send an email and notification to the athletes that crews have been made.
Favourite crews allows you to quickly add boats to the Crew Area. The favourite is based upon the settings you made when creating the favourite.
To create a favourite crew click on the star which is next to the crew. Select this and the favourite will be made.
You can only delete favourites you have made. You cannot delete favourites made by other coaches in your club. To delete a favourite deselect the star
