Editing Player Details

For each player, we track a number of fields, including:

  • Name: The player's real name
  • Email: Used for contacting the player, particularly when sending announcements to checked-in players
  • Emergency Contact and Phone: Required for attending an event, in case of emergency
  • Waiver: Required for all players. This can be any file uploaded to the site, but is generally a scan of the signed document.
  • Type: The membership type, or Expired. Switching the Type to Advanced automatically awards 2 Build for each 'New' or 'Active' characters that the player has on file.
  • Referred By: Used to award referral points to the player who referred this player. This can only be set when creating a new player.

When making changes on this page, only the above fields are saved when you click the "Save" button.

Managing Assistance Points

You can either award or spend player AP from this page. To award AP:

  1. On the Edit Player page, find the "Award AP" section on the right
  2. Enter the date on which the AP was earned.
  3. Choose the Chapter for which the AP was awarded - usually your own chapter. All AP is local to a specific chapter, and can only be spent at the Chapter for which it was awarded.
  4. Specify the amount of AP earned or spent, and (optionally) give a reason for the earnings or expenditure.

In the Assistance Points section, you will also see all AP earned and spent, including items and Build purchased during checkins. You can edit these items by double-clicking on the table row to edit in-place, or clicking on the Edit button. When finished, click the Save button to commit changes or Cancel to discard them. You can also Delete the row from the history with the Delete button
