Update available from November 2, 2018
It's important that you and your colleagues can access relevant, timely and secure information. That's why this Smartabase release focuses on new abilities for sharing and accessing information. We've got:
- New shareable links that take you straight to where you need to go.
- New shareable links within performance alerts.
- A new tool to help you maintain data continuity when an athlete moves to a different sport or club within an organization.
We've also made critical steps forward in the development of our Human Performance Framework. You won't see these changes on Smartabase's surface, but we've been working hard to integrate new capabilities required for our Human Performance Framework with the existing Smartabase functionality. This helps us weave a strong and flexible platform for future human performance data and applications. You can contact your lead builder for more info on our Human Performance Framework project.
URL Generator for Sharing Links
When building a form, you can use the URL generator field type. This field creates a URL for the user to copy and share outside Smartabase. The URL generator field can be set up to create links to:
- The record the URL was generated within.
- The profile page for the athlete.
- The home page for the athlete (with both sidebars open).
Normal privacy rules still apply to information accessed via a shared link. Anyone using the link will need an account with access to the athlete as well as the relevant system and data permissions.
Performance Alert Links
Building on the functionality we developed for the URL generator, it's now possible for you to include a link when setting up a performance alert. This means that the recipient of an email alert can easily access the record which triggered the alert.
When you create or edit a performance alert, select the option to include a link to the entry. Links can only be added to email alerts, so remember to set the communication preferences for your alert appropriately.
This release contains a new tool for Smartabase administrators. The athlete duplicator creates a copy of an athlete account, including all data recorded about that athlete up to the date of duplication.
We developed this feature to support our clients who have changing requirements for access to athlete data. For example, when an athlete transfers from one club to another. The original account is used by the new club going forward, and the duplicate account is kept by the first club. This means no disruptions are caused for the athlete. They can continue to use the same login, forms and features.
New data can't be added for the duplicate, nor can the athlete log in as the duplicate account. But the data up until duplication remains available to the original club. This allows the original club to maintain reporting continuity. When the original club no longer requires the duplicated data, it can remove the duplicate account with no impact on the athlete's usual account.
Asia Pacific Human Performance Summit Presentations
There are loads of great moments from the Human Performance Summit we recently held at the Rugby Australia Development Centre, Sydney. We sold out events across the Asia Pacific, North America and Europe. Now, you can view all the sessions from the Asia Pacific Summit. Summit highlights include:
- Injury Prevention in Elite Sport | Phil Coles, Head of Athletic Performance, San Antonio Spurs (NBA).
- Benefits of Machine Learning-Based Decision Making vs Subjective | Sam Robertson, Head of Research & Innovation, Victoria University Western Bulldogs.
- Using Technology to Develop Youth Athletes | Luke Power, Australian Football League (AFL), Academy Manager.
Bug Fixes and Minor Updates
- We have modified the level of access required to archive terms documents. Group administrators could do this in the past, but only site administrators can perform this action now.
- You can now set performance alerts to be triggered by scheduled events and appointments when their state changes from On to Rescheduled or Cancelled.
