Mobile friendly updates

We are pleased to announce the release of new menus for members that are more mobile (especially Blackberry) friendly.  General menu navigation has not changed but the menu displayed changes depending on your screen size.

On a standard desktop, the menu continues to look like this:

The same menu looks like this on a blackberry:

and when you click on the menu, you get a pop-up that looks like this:

click on your menu item and the sheet reloads.

Let us know what you think.


Append text to confirmation emails

Do you want to remind members about an event? Do you want to remind them of the cancellation policy? Why not append a message to booking confirmations?

We’ve added this feature to Club Manager’s profiles. Change the message at will…


Timeout increased!

Due to popular demand we have increased the timeout value from 20 minutes to 1 hour. This means that your Gigasports session will end after 1 hour of inactivity.

We are working on further enhancing this feature… watch this space!


New: Email opt-in / opt-out panel

If you use GigaMail, you may be asked by members to remove their email address from certain mailings or if they opted themselves out, the member may ask to be opted back in to mailings. Now you can do this easily! In the member’s profile you will notice a new listing of all your membership classes. The listing indicates the classes that the member has opted in to and opted out of:


New Edit screen

We have released a new edit screen that simplifies the input and editing of bookings. You no longer need to switch between Member and FreeText mode anymore – it’s all on the same screen. As an additional feature, you can now display BOTH Members AND FreeText on the booking sheet!


New report! List of bookings with "Guest" selected.

A number of clubs asked for a report of bookings where the member brought a guest in to the club. We are happy to release a report that gives you just that. Features:

  • Because prime time slots are more important, you can filter by row (time slot),
  • Because weekend slots are often different from week day ones, you can run it for week days, weekends or both,
  • Because seasons have different characteristics, you can select a start date and an end date,
  • Run the report by activity e.g. tennis, badminton or squash and
  • View the history of any reported booking with a guest.

Let us know if you find it useful.

New report: No Shows (for class sign-ups)

You could always go back and look at old sign-up sheets to see who hadn’t showed up for your classes/programs. Now you can get a report of the no-shows only. Look for the new report it under “Reports” and then “Classes – No Show” on the right hand side.

Blackberry – login and sign up for classes

As a follow up to our mobile post on iPhones from a few weeks back, we are now demonstrating how to log on to gigasports and book a class using a Blackberry Storm (9700) running the version 6 operating system. This demo was done using the standard, installed RIM browser.



Member roster updated

The Member Roster (search) page has been updated with a new, slick search box. The page has also been updated and refers to the newly released member Email Groups.


Email Groups for members

Member Email Groups allow members to easily send the same e-mail to a number of other members. It allows members to create and maintain personal groups of members and mail them all at once. Members can also see which groups they are on, remove themselves from groups and even block a member from adding them to a group again.

Members can access Email Groups through the Member Roster or a club can add it to their menu system. Let know if you want to add Email Groups to the club menu system.
