Making sure your team has all the odds and ends they'll need for game day can be quite tricky, but with Refreshments & Gear Assignments it's never been more convenient. RosterBot teams can assign snacks, refreshments, and gear with RosterBot, so everyone on your team will know exactly whose turn it is to bring the most important equipment to the next game, or whose job it is to bring the post-game goodies.
Create Your Refreshments & Gear Items
First things first, you'll need to create a list the ‘Gear and Refreshments' your team will need.
To get started, find Refreshments and gear in the navigation menu. If you have yet to add anything to the list, you'll be prompted to add an item.
As you can see, you can leave a brief description and choose how many players any given item will be assigned to, and when they receive the notification. You can also limit those responsible to Full-timers, Spares, or anyone who is attending the event.
Once you have added some items, they be listed in the Refreshments and Gear section if you need to make any changes.
If you need to add anything else, just tap the Orange (+) button in the bottom right hand corner.
Automatic vs. Voluntary Assignments
Once you have created a Refreshment and Gear item, RosterBot will default to the automatic assignment tool for your Refreshments and Gear. This means that RosterBot will select a player who has checked-in for your event and notify them that they are to bring a Refreshment and Gear item. This is also shown on your team's Roster Summary section of the Event Detail page so everyone on the team can see who's bringing what.
There is also an option to allow your players to volunteer to bring a Refreshment and Gear item for their event. If the voluntary option has been selected by the manager when creating the Refreshment and Gear item, any player who is checked-in for an event can sign-up to bring this item.
A manager can also manually assign items to players on an event by event basis through the attendance roster. Tap on the Gears icon beside any Checked-in player and select what you wish them to bring to that event from the drop-down menu for Refreshments and Gear.
Refreshments & Gear Tracking
RosterBot Pro teams are also provided a detailed tracker of who's been assigned Refreshments & Gear items, and who's followed through with their assignment and brought their item.
Your team's Refreshment & Gear page will show a 'History' button which show's both assignments and forgot tallies.
To credit your teammates for bringing item's they were assigned, select 'Brought' in your team's Post-Event Report.
