Alternate Email Address

A member can specify an alternate email address on their profile. Multiple email addresses may be entered using a semicolon to separate each address. By default, the alternate email addresses are included when sending an email from the Send Message page.

Alternate Fee Item

On a fee item, you can specify an alternate fee item. For example, you may have $600 rowing fee that can be paid all at once, with an option to pay $200 over three months. On each of the two fee items, you would specify the other item as the alternative fee item. On just one of the fee items, specify the teams it applies to. Members of those teams will see the fee item listed on their Payments page, along with the alternative choice.

Boat Unavailable

You can mark a boat as unavailable on the Shell/Boat Profile page. Setting this flag will immediately prevent someone from reserving the boat. The boat will be unavailable until you uncheck this option.
If a boat will be unavailable due to being used at a regatta, first create the Regatta session and put the boat in a line-up. Then go to the Regatta Information page and set the Trailer Load/Unload Dates/Times. This will make all boats in the regatta line-ups as unavailable from the time the trailer is loaded until it is unloaded.

Club Roster/Directory

You can access your club's roster/directory using this button near the top of the page.

COVID-19 Screening

Members can take a COVID screening in iCrew where a small set of questions are asked. The questions are modeled after those found on the U.S. CDC website.

A club must have the COVID-19 Screening function activated on the Club Profile. Members will see a thermometer icon at the top of the page in iCrew.  Tapping the icon will take them to the questionnaire.

Coaches and Admins can access today's screening results from the screening page. There is an option to forces members to take the screening each day. There is also an option to send an email alert to coaches if a member answers Yes to any question. Contact iCrew to have these options turned on for your club.

COVID-19 Vaccine Card

A club member can upload an image of their vaccine card from their Profile page by tapping the upload icon under their profile picture. Only your club admins can see the card when they access the member's profile from the club roster.
NOTE: An admin must turn on this option from your club profile.

The image is stored on the iCrew web server in a folder that can only be accessed by an authenticated iCrew admin in your club.

Discount on a Fee

Here is how you can apply a discount for a member's fee item.

(tap image to view full size)
assistance image

Fee Item for Single Member

You can create a fee item that is intended for a single member or a specific set of members. Create the fee item but do not select any teams/squads at the bottom of the page. Now, open the fee item again, then select New payment record from the Other options list near the top of the page. On the next page, select the member and continue to create the payment record. You can repeat this procedure for any member, as needed.

Financial Aid

If you have a club member that always receives a percentage discount as financial aid on every fee item, you can set their financial aid percentage on their profile. Look under the Emergency contact and more section. The Financial aid percentage field is down near the Save button. Once you set a value, all new fees assigned to the member will get the percentage discount applied in the financial aid field. NOTE: This will not update existing fee payment records.

iCrew Pricing

The monthly fee for iCrew can be viewed here: https://icrew.club

Import Boats

When you are getting iCrew set up, you can import your boat inventory an Excel/CSV file. The csv template file can be downloaded from this page.

Import Members

When you are getting iCrew set up, you can import your membership roster from an Excel/CSV file. The csv template file can be downloaded from this page.

Kiosk Mode

Both the Today page and the On-the-Water Log page can be used in kiosk mode where the page can be shown on a computer in your boathouse.

You must be a club administrator to open either page in kiosk mode. You can also create a special iCrew account to be used as the user account for kiosk mode. Just create an account under your club with a username/ID like "kiosk{clubabbr}" where {clubabbr} is your club name abbreviation. Then enter this username in the Kiosk username field on your Club Profile under Other Settings.

When using the Today page in kiosk mode, you'll also have access to view all line-ups for the day.

NOTE: This kiosk user account does not need admin nor coach privileges.

Launch Certified

If a club member is certified to drive a coach's launch, you can update their profile to indicate this certification. Look under Rower Settings for the Member is launch certified toggle.

Location Tracking

Boat Location Tracking is a feature that enables the tracking of rowers when they are in a boat on the water. The iCrew mobile app has been updated to allow a rower to start and stop a tracking session. Read more here:
https://icrew.club/docs/BoatLocTracking.pdf

Logout of iCrew

To log out of iCrew, tap the icon at the top of the page that looks like a door with an arrow pointing right.

Member Segments

For clubs on the Premium subscription level, club admins can now define member segments. A member segment helps you find club members that meet a set of criteria that you define. The members found based on the segment criteria can then be sent an email or you can access each member's profile. The criteria can be based on any member custom field and on a number of other member fields. This new feature can only be accessed from the new admin/coach portal.

Example usage: Find all members that do not have their emergency contact name on their profile.

Field notes:

  • You do not need to include the Archived field unless you want to find archived members. By default, you will only see active members.
  • For Skill level, valid values are 0 through 4:
    • 0 = not rated
    • 1 = LTR
    • 2 = Novice
    • 3 = Intermediate
    • 4 = Advanced

Missed or Failed Payments

For clubs using PaySimple, there is now a way to collect a one-time payment for missed or failed payments associated with a monthly recurring fee item. From the fee item's Payment Tracking report, access the member's payment record by tapping the round pencil icon next to the member's name. Then set the Amount due for failed/missed payments to the amount the member owes and tap the Save button.

Pause/Resume Recurring Payments

If your club uses PaySimple, you can pause and resume a member's recurring payments from the PaySimple Data page. See image below. When a member leaves a team associated with a recurring payment, the payments are paused automatically. And when a member re-joins a team, the payments are resumed automatically.

(tap image to view full size)

Refunds

If your club uses PaySimple, you can issue a full refund for an item from the PaySimple Customers & Payments page iCrew. You can also void a payment in progress if you catch it early in the process. If you need to issue a partial refund and the club member paid with a credit card, instructions are provided on the payment refund page. Partial refunds are not available if the member paid using ACH.

Here is a video that goes through all the regatta-related features of iCrew.

Reports

iCrew includes many reports that admins and coaches can run. From the Portal, tap on Reports.

Scheduling Assistant

Have you ever tried to schedule an event and gone back and forth with people to figure out a date and time that everyone is available? The Scheduling Assistant can help you schedule an event. The event can be anything from a meeting, a row with teammates, or dinner with friends.

You provide some event information and choose some possible dates/times for the event. Then you select the members that will attend the event. When attendees log into iCrew, they will see a link to complete a survey to indicate their availability. Try out the Scheduling Assistant.

Text Message/SMS

IMPORTANT: For a member to receive a text message, they must specify their mobile phone number and carrier on their profile. If you want to require mobile phone and carrier for all members, update your club profile and check the box labeled Member's mobile phone required.

If a member has specified their mobile phone number and carrier, you can send a text message to that member using the Send Message feature.

The current SMS/text message process in iCrew is a bit clunky in that is sends the message to a special email address like 2069993333@vtext.com (where vtext.com is a special domain for Verizon, for example). By using this special email address, the message gets delivered as a SMS/text message on the member's mobile device. This process has a dependency on the mobile carrier's infrastructure and the message often includes extraneous characters.

NOTE: There is a more robust service to handle the delivery of text messages from iCrew. There is a 300 character limit to messages sent using this service. To use this enhanced text messaging service, there is a fee of 2.5 cents per text message (1 text messages sent to 60 members would cost US $1.50). Contact iCrew to enable this feature for your club.

To Do List

NOTE: This is a Premium subscription feature.

To help clubs stay organized, iCrew supports a basic To Do list. Any coach or admin can create a To Do item. An item can be assigned to any club member. A To Do task description, follow-up note, and follow-up date can be set on the item. An admin can mark an item as shared so that all admins can view and update the item. By default, you’ll see your active items. You can include completed items when viewing items. Admins can view and update all shared items.
You can also just view items that are assigned to a particular member.

From the Club Home page, you'll see a To Do List tile. You'll also see a To Do List item on the Portal

Toggle In/Out With Email

Are you looking for a quick and easy way for members to toggle in or out of a particular session or regatta? It is now as easy as sending an email and asking members to reply with a "yes" or "no". In the email, ask each member if they plan to attend the session and to reply with "yes" or "no". From the session, use the Share Session Plan option to compose and send a message. On the Send Message page, check the related box above the Send Message button.

NOTE: iCrew will use the sender's email address to find the member's account.

Tracking COVID-19 Vaccination Status

There are a number of ways you could track vaccine status in iCrew. A Document works well where an admin, after verifying the person's vaccination status, could mark the document tracking record as "on file". In conjunction with a document, you might want to use the Tile tag setting on a members profile. Pick a symbol for your club to indicate that the member has been vaccinated. iCrew suggests the @ symbol. An @ symbol will appear before the members name on their tile on the line-ups page and the tile will be green too.

WhatsApp Groups

To facilitate group communications via WhatsApp, you can add a WhatsApp Group link URL to your club profile (under Communications Settings), any team/squad profile, and for a regatta on the regatta info page. Once you add a WhatsApp group link, club members will see a WhatsApp icon and link on the Club Home page or on the Team/Squad Home page or on the Regatta Info page.

iCrew Entity and Functionality Descriptions

Club

A club represents a rowing organization. All other entities are associated with the club.

Teams

A team represents a group of athletes that row together. A team can also represent a group of people like all your coaches, your board of directors or youth parents. You can create an unlimited number of teams under your club.

Members

A member is a rower, coach, parent, or administrator in your club.

Sessions

A session represents both practice sessions and regattas. A session can be an on-land workout or an on-the-water practice that includes boat line-ups.

Reservations

A reservation is made by a club member to row a particular boat on their own, or perhaps with another club member, but without a coach.

Shells/Boats

A shell or boat is an object that athletes get in and row.

Oars

Locations

A location is a place where sessions or events occur. A location with correct GPS coordinates (latitude/longitude) will allow your members to check into a session using their mobile phone using the location services.

Documents

The primary purpose of a Document in iCrew is to track that a member has submitted or signed a document. For example, if you have a Code of Conduct that everyone needs to read and sign, you create a Document item in iCrew and you upload a single copy of document in .pdf format. iCrew keeps track of when/if a given member reads and signs the document. When you create a Document, you specify the teams it applies to. You'll then have a tracking record for all members of the selected teams.

But iCrew was not designed to be a full-blown document repository. Also, any document you upload into iCrew should not contain any personal information.

If you’re looking to store scanned copies of documents that have been printed, filled out, and submitted to the club office, iCrew is not right place to do this.

Member Fees & Payments

You view the payments you may owe to the club for various fees, see your Payments page.


Skill Level

Your skill level (Unrated/LTR/Novice/Intermediate/Advanced) is set by your coach. If your club allows boat reservations, this setting affects the boats you can reserve. Anyone with a value of "Unrated" will not be allowed to make a boat reservation. Contact your club admin or coach to discuss a change in your level.

Import Concept2 Logbook Data

Watch this video to learn how to import your Concept2 logbook data into iCrew.


Last Coxed Count

For clubs where rowers rotate their way through the coxswain seat, iCrew tracks the last time any rower coxed a boat. This helps coaches assign coxswains for practice sessions.

Each time a rower attends a practice session, their last coxed count goes up by one. Only rowing sessions count so if a practice is an on-land workout, that session will not increase the last coxed count. Only sessions that have occurred in the past year are included in the count. Rowing at a regatta does not add to the count, but someone will receive credit for coxing at a regatta. If a session is marked as a private session, that session is not counted.

After someone coxes at a session, their count is reset to one. So, for example, if someone coxes on Tuesday and rows again on Thursday, their count will show as one for the Thursday session. This means it has been one session since the person last coxed.


Join a Team

To join a team, open your Teams tab, then tap on the Join or leave teams... button. All teams you are allowed to join will be listed with a Join Team button. You can also leave a team from this page.


Switch Clubs

If you need to be added as a member to another club, contact that club's administrator and ask them to add you to their roster and let them know the club you already row with. Once you've been added, you can switch clubs from the Club Home page where you'll see a list of the clubs you're associated with.


Discussion Settings

You can decide which discussion channels you want to follow and which you want to receive activity email notifications for. From the Discussions page, tap on Settings, then check the appropriate boxes in the Follow and Send alert columns.

The activity for channels you follow will appear ahead of other channels. If you choose to receive email alerts for a channel, you'll receive an email whenever someone posts a new message or responds to an existing message in any of the selected channels.

To set your attendance plans for a practice session, go to your Attendance Plans page and change the Attending? Yes/No toggle setting for the practice session.

You can also tap Your Menu, Drop-in session... button to add yourself to session for team/squad for which you are not a member and if the team allows drop-ins.

Alternate Fee Item

On a fee item, you can specify an alternate fee item. For example, you may have $600 rowing fee that can be paid all at once, with an option to pay $200 over three months. On each of the two fee items, you would specify the other item as the alternative fee item. On just one of the fee items, specify the teams it applies to. Members of those teams will see the fee item listed on their Payments page, along with the alternative choice.

Discount on a Fee

Here is how you can apply a discount for a member's fee item.

Fee Item for Single Member

You can create a fee item that is intended for a single member or a specific set of members. Create the fee item but do not select any teams/squads at the bottom of the page. Now, open the fee item again, then select New payment record from the Other options list near the top of the page. On the next page, select the member and continue to create the payment record. You can repeat this procedure for any member, as needed.

Missed or Failed Payments

For clubs using PaySimple, there is now a way to collect a one-time payment for missed or failed payments associated with a monthly recurring fee item. From the fee item's Payment Tracking report, access the member's payment record by tapping the round pencil icon next to the member's name. Then set the Amount due for failed/missed payments to the amount the member owes and tap the Save button.

Pause/Resume Recurring Payments

If your club uses PaySimple, you can pause and resume a member's recurring payments from the PaySimple Data page. See image below. When a member leaves a team associated with a recurring payment, the payments are paused automatically. And when a member re-joins a team, the payments are resumed automatically.

Refunds

If your club uses PaySimple, you can issue a full refund for an item from the PaySimple Customers & Payments page iCrew. You can also void a payment in progress if you catch it early in the process. If you need to issue a partial refund and the club member paid with a credit card, instructions are provided on the payment refund page. Partial refunds are not available if the member paid using ACH.

Import Members

When you are getting iCrew set up, you can import your membership roster from an Excel/CSV file. The csv template file can be downloaded from this page.

Member Segments

For clubs on the Premium subscription level, club admins can now define member segments. A member segment helps you find club members that meet a set of criteria that you define. The members found based on the segment criteria can then be sent an email or you can access each member's profile. The criteria can be based on any member custom field and on a number of other member fields. This new feature can only be accessed from the new admin/coach portal.

Example usage: Find all members that do not have their emergency contact name on their profile.

Field notes:


Text Message/SMS

IMPORTANT: For a member to receive a text message, they must specify their mobile phone number and carrier on their profile. If you want to require mobile phone and carrier for all members, update your club profile and check the box labeled Member's mobile phone required.

If a member has specified their mobile phone number and carrier, you can send a text message to that member using the Send Message feature.

The current SMS/text message process in iCrew is a bit clunky in that is sends the message to a special email address like 2069993333@vtext.com (where vtext.com is a special domain for Verizon, for example). By using this special email address, the message gets delivered as a SMS/text message on the member's mobile device. This process has a dependency on the mobile carrier's infrastructure and the message often includes extraneous characters.

NOTE: There is a more robust service to handle the delivery of text messages from iCrew. There is a 300 character limit to messages sent using this service. To use this enhanced text messaging service, there is a fee of 2.5 cents per text message (1 text messages sent to 60 members would cost US $1.50). Contact iCrew to enable this feature for your club.

Toggle In/Out With Email

Are you looking for a quick and easy way for members to toggle in or out of a particular session or regatta? It is now as easy as sending an email and asking members to reply with a "yes" or "no". In the email, ask each member if they plan to attend the session and to reply with "yes" or "no". From the session, use the Share Session Plan option to compose and send a message. On the Send Message page, check the related box above the Send Message button.

NOTE: iCrew will use the sender's email address to find the member's account.

WhatsApp Groups

To facilitate group communications via WhatsApp, you can add a WhatsApp Group link URL to your club profile (under Communications Settings), any team/squad profile, and for a regatta on the regatta info page. Once you add a WhatsApp group link, club members will see a WhatsApp icon and link on the Club Home page or on the Team/Squad Home page or on the Regatta Info page. 
Tap one of these links to learn how to create a WhatsApp Group:

Import Boats

When you are getting iCrew set up, you can import your boat inventory an Excel/CSV file. The csv template file can be downloaded from this page.


Add a Rower to a Session

You can add a rower to a session from the Check In page or the Line-ups page.. Look for the Add Member button.


Remove a Rower from a Session

If you're an Admin or Coach, you can remove a rower from a future session using the Check In page. Just tap the athlete's tile name and it will turn from gray text to red. If the session occurs on the current day, use the Line-ups page. Tap the athlete's tile until it turns to red text.

If you're a rower you can remove yourself from a session by toggling out of the session on your Attendance Plans page.


Add a Guest Rower to a Session

If you have a visitor to your boathouse that does not have an iCrew account in your club, you can add a tile for them on the Line-ups page for the session. Down in the rower bullpen where you see all the regular athlete's tiles, you'll see some tiles with just an asterisk. Double-tap/click on one of these tiles and you'll be able to enter the person's name.


Tile Tag

You can set a member's tile tag to one of these values:  ! @ # $ % = : ; [ ] blank

The value you set will appear before the athlete's name on their tile on the session line-ups page. Each character will also cause the tile to be colored. You can use this tag to represent anything you want. For example, # could designate a novice rower and $ could indicate the athlete is overdue on fees.

An administrator can set the meanings of the tags on the Club Profile.


College Recruiting

For those clubs with youth rowers that may want to row in college, iCrew has a page where 2K PRs are available for review by college crew team recruiters. Your club must have the Erg Tests functionality turned on and 2K results must be captured in iCrew. As an athlete saves 2K test results, iCrew will determine their PR.

An athlete must also acknowledge on their profile that they would like to share their 2K PR and they must specify their primary coach as their method of contact by recruiters. The data shared is the athlete's Tile name, 2K PR, height, year of graduation, and club name. No personal identifying information about the athlete will be shared. Only athletes under the age of 20 will see this option on their profile under Rower Settings.

If your club does have the Erg Tests function turned on, but you do not want any youth athletes to participate in this feature, contact iCrew to have this feature turned off for your club.

Athlete Recruiting Profile Checklist

Block a Member

If a member should not be allowed to attend any sessions for any reason (fees past due, missing documents, etc.) you can block them by checking the Member is blocked from sessions checkbox on their profile.

This action will prevent the member from toggling into any future sessions. In addition, the member will be automatically toggled out of all future sessions (one day grace period is given).

Once you unblock a member, they will be allowed to toggle into sessions again.


Archive a Member

If you're a member that is no longer active, contact a coach or club administrator and ask them to archive your account.

If you're an Admin, you can set a member's status to "archived" on their member profile. Look for the checkbox labeled Member is archived? and check the box, then tap the Save button at the bottom of the page.

You can also archive a member from the Club Roster/Directory using these steps:

  1. Go to your Club Roster/Directory
  2. Find the member you wish to archive, then tap the Archive button to the right of their name in the Archive column.
  3. To unarchive a member, check the Include archived members checkbox near the top of the page, find the member and tap their Archive button.


Archive a Team

If you have a team that is no longer used, you can mark the team as "archived". This can be done by checking the Archive this team checkbox on the Team Profile page.

You can un-archive a team by unchecking the same checkbox. To get to any archived team, tap the Teams List on the Teams tab, then check the Include archived teams checkbox. Find the team, then tap the Edit button to open the team's profile page.


Set Banner Text for Team or Club Members

Banner text is another way to get a message conveyed to members. Banner text is displayed with a yellow background on the member's home page in iCrew (see example below). To set banner text for a team or for entire club, enter the text in the Member alert text field on either a team profile or on the club profile.

If you set the text on a team profile, only members of the team will see the text. If you set the text on the club profile, all members will see the text. If you need to alert multiple teams, enter the text on one team profile, then copy/paste the same text onto other team profiles. If a member is part of multiple teams, they will see just a single alert when they access iCrew.

The text will be shown to members as long as it exists on the team or club profile. Coaches will also see alert text for their teams on the Portal Page.


Shell Seat Configuratoin

This field represents the current seat rigging configuration - port (stroke)/starboard (bow) - going from stern to bow. So for a port stroked eight, the value would be pspspsps. A starboard stroked config would be spspspsp.

Another example of a port stroked eight with a port bucket at seats 5 and 6 and a starboard bucket at 3 and 4 would be psppssps. This setting is used on the Line-ups page to color-code each seat in a boat to help match rowers with side preferences to the correct seat.


PaySimple Integration

For clubs based in the U.S. iCrew can be integrated with PaySimple to offer a seamless experience to collect payments from your club members.

See this page for more information: iCrew / PaySimple Integration


PayPal Integration

iCrew can be integrated with PayPal to collect fee payments from your club members through the use of PayPal Buttons. This requires that your club create a standard PayPal Business account

Custom Color Theme

You can request a change to the look-n-feel of iCrew to use colors based on your club's logo. This change also includes the removal of the iCrew logo from the heading area so that only your club logo is shown.

NOTE: There is a one-time setup fee of $49.00 USD to implement this change for your club. Contact iCrew to request this change or to hide this option. NOTE: The colors can be changed if you don't like the example shown.


Incident Reporting

If your club is on the Premium subscription level, any club member can submit an Incident Report from your Club Home page.

On your club profile, an administrator can specify up to three additional questions that will be asked on an incident report. An admin can also specify a list of email addresses to notify when a new incident report is submitted.

Access and update permissions for incident reports are as follows:

Here is a brief video.


Reservation Settings

Maximum Minutes

You can specify the maximum number of minutes for a reservation. This setting can be changed on your club profile.

Maximum Days Ahead

You can specify the maximum number of days ahead of time that a reservation can be made. This setting can be changed on your club profile.

Maximum Per Member

You can specify the maximum number of reservations a member is allowed over a number of days.

EXAMPLE: In the settings shown below, a member is limited to 5 reservations over an 8 day period. If a club member is making a reservation for Aug 11th, iCrew will look at two 8-day periods - the first from Aug 4th through Aug 11th and the second from Aug 8th through Aug 15th. If the member already has 5 reservations on the calendar during either of these two timeframes, the new reservation will not be allowed. By looking at both timeframes, iCrew is able to prevent crafty members from spoofing the system.

These settings can be changed on your club profile. Leave these settings blank if you do not want to implement a reservation limit for club members.

Minutes Between Usage

You can specify the number of minutes that will be added as a buffer between reservations for a given piece of equipment. This setting can be changed on your club profile.

No Limits on Privately Owned Boats

Check this box if privately owned boats are not held to the max time, max days ahead and max per member limits. This setting can be changed on your club profile.

Allow members to take an open seat

Check this box if a club member can add themselves to existing reservation of a multi-seat boat. This allows one member to reserve a double or quad, then other members can take an open seat in the boat. Tiles on the reservation calendar will indicate if an open seat exists. A member can also access a page from the Make Reservation page that shows all all open seats.

Oars Optional

Check this box if a reservation can be made without specifying oars. This setting can be changed on your club profile.

Maximum Members Present

Set the number of members that should be allowed at the boathouse. By default, this number only applies to independent rowing and reservations. Contact iCrew if you would like session attendees to be included in the count. Leave blank if there is no limit. This setting can be changed on your club profile.

Enable On-the-Water Log

Check this box to enable the On-the-Water (OtW) log to help track when members are out rowing. The OtW log can be accessed from the Today page. This setting can be changed on your club profile.

Require Distance Rowed

Check this box to enable members to enter the distance they rowed during reservation. Select the distance unit of measure from the list. The distance can be entered on the On-the-Water Log so you must also have the OtW Log enabled.

Grab-n-go Reservation

If a club member makes a reservation for the current day that starts within 30** minutes of the current time, iCrew tags this as a grab-n-go reservation. For example, a club member checks iCrew and finds a boat that is available right now, so they reserve it, head to the boathouse, and go for a row.

A grab-n-go reservation is never checked against the member's recent reservation activity, therefore, will never be blocked for a member exceeding the reservation limit set by the club. In addition, a grab-n-go reservation is not included when counting a member's recent reservations so it will not be the cause of blocking a new future reservation. This feature allows full utilization of your fleet by letting members row a boat that would have otherwise gone unused.

* Contact iCrew if you want to use a value other than thirty minutes or if you want to turn off this functionality.

Canceling a Reservation

Members can cancel a reservation up to 15 minutes after the reservation start time. A club administrator can contact iCrew to use a value other than 15 minutes for your club.


Change Who Gets Notified When Damage Report is Logged

Any member of your club can submit a damage report when they notice damage to equipment. You can specify the email addresses that get sent a message whenever a new damage report is logged. The email addresses can be specified on your club profile.


Impersonate a Member

A primary club administrator can impersonate a member to help troubleshoot issues the member may be having in iCrew. From the Club Roster, access the member's profile, tap the Member options... button, then tap Impersonate this member....

Once you impersonate a member, you will be in iCrew as if you're the member so be cautious about any updates you make. Once you're done impersonating, tap stop impersonating at the top of the screen. If that fails, log off and back on using your normal credentials.


Specify a Member as Coxswain

If a member only serves primarily as a coxswain, you can update their profile to indicate that they are only a coxswain. Look for the Primary role is coxswain toggle at the bottom of the Rower Settings section of the member's profile.

iCrew also allows a member to be specified as a coxswain for a team, but as a rower for another team.


Set a athlete's Skill Level and Boat Size Permissions

If your club allows members to reserve boats and oars for independent rowing, you can match rowers to appropriate boats by setting a athlete's skill level on their profile. For example, if you have a skinny racing single in your fleet, you can specify that the boat requires a rower with an advanced skill level. And you specify each athlete's skill level on their profile. A athlete's skill level must be equal to or better than the boat's setting or the shell will be not be offered to the rower when they go to make a reservation.

To quickly change settings for members for a particular team, use the Rowing Profiles tile on the team's home page.


Athlete Tile Decorations

A athlete's tile on the line-ups page can be decorated in a number of ways. If a rower has a port/stroke or starboard/bow side preference set on their profile, their tile will show either a red bar on the right to indicate port/stroke preference or a green bar on the left to indicate starboard/bow preference. The athlete's skill level (LTR/novice/intermediate/advanced) is reflected with one, two, three or four dots on the lower-left of the tile. The tile may also be colorized based on the tile tag value on their profile.

Red text indicates the member does not plan to attend this session. Gray text indicates the member plans to attend this session. Blue text and the checkmark indicates the member has checked into the session. The Session CheckIn page is meant to be used on the day of the session for members to check in to indicate they are actually present at practice session.


Boat/Shell Tile Decorations

1. Boat has major damage.

2. Boat has minor damage.

3. Boat is currently unavailable.

4. Boat is a competitive/racing shell.


Set a athlete's Sweep Rowing Side Preference

Members can set their side preference for sweep rowing. They can specify their preference for port/stroke side, starboard/bow side, or if they don't have a preference they can specify select "either". This setting causes the member's tile to be color code with a red bar on the right to indicate port/stroke side preference and a green bar on the left to indicate starboard/bow preference.


Change Toggle Alert Hours

iCrew will notify team coaches if a rower toggles in or out of a session and the session starts within a specified number of hours. The number of hours can be set on the team profile. Look for the item labeled Toggle alert hours buffer under More settings.

NOTE: If you set this value to zero, alerts will never be sent to coaches.


Test Results

To enter erg test results, you first need to create the test. After the test is created, results can be entered.

To create a test, from the Portal, tap on Tests, then tap the New + icon near the top of the page.

You can create a test for time or distance. When entering results, iCrew will automatically calculate associated values for you such as 500m pace and weight and age adjusted results.


Allow Members to Enter Test Results

If you want to allow team members to enter their own test results, you can check the Allow members to enter test results box on the team profile. Any test where the test date is set to two weeks in the past and one week in the future will appear on team member's Test Results page with a button to enter their results.


Change Team's Default Session Attendance Setting for Members

For each team you can specify whether the member's session default attendance setting is attending or not attending. This setting is used when creating sessions for the team. You can change this setting on the team profile. Look for Default member attendance setting near the bottom of the team profile page.


Priority Equipment

The Priority Equipment feature allows you to allocate boats and oars to a team. When you create sessions for the team, the equipment is automatically allocated to a line-up in the session to prevent members from reserving the equipment. If you add equipment to the list, be use to update existing sessions to get the new boats allocated to a line-up.


Use Your Own Email App to Send a Message

If you've encountered issues with members not receiving messages you've sent from iCrew, you'll want to try a new option on the Send Message page. Look for the Compose & send from your email app button next to the Subject field.

This new option will use the email app installed on your device to compose and send the message. You still get the convenience of selecting recipients from your iCrew team/squad rosters. Those recipients are simply passed from iCrew to the email app on your mobile device or desktop computer.

This options as a few advantages:

NOTE: You may encounter a limitation on the number of recipients you can specify in a single email. If you tap the new Compose & send from your email app button and nothing happens, try reducing the number of recipients and tap the button again.


Discussion Channels

Discussions are an online message board where members can post information and respond to posts. Discussions are a Premium feature in iCrew.

To managed the different discussion channels for your club, see the Discussions tab.


Session Calendar

You can use the Calendar to view all of the scheduled sessions for your club. This includes regattas which are displayed using red colored tiles. If you tap on any tile in the calendar that session's page will be displayed. You must be a club administrator or team coach to create sessions.


Using a Punchcard

A punch card is a virtual card that a member purchases for some number of sessions. The use of a punch card is an alternative method to pay for a session. It may be most useful for members that have irregular schedules that prevent them from rowing on a regular, consistent basis.

Tap here to read more about punchcards.


Cancel a Session

You can cancel a session or multiple sessions for a team/squad. From the Portal, tap on Sessions. Then tap the Manage icon near the top of the page. You will see your options for canceling a session or sessions (In bulk).



Session Reminder Email

iCrew can send a session reminder email to all team members. You can turn this option on by checking the Send session email reminder on the team profile. The email will be sent two days before the session.


Session Check In

To track actual attendance to a session, use the Session Check In page. The page will display a tile for each rower that has indicated that they plan to attend the session. It is recommended that the Check In page is displayed on a touchscreen computer. When a rower arrives at practice, they should tap their own tile to indicate they are actually present.

A rower can also use their mobile device to check in to a session. This requires use of the Location/GPS Services on their mobile device and an administrator must set the GPS coordinates of the Location of the practices. For more information, see Club Locations.


Teams Audit

You can use the Teams Audit feature to make sure team memberships are correct. For example, you may have your youth athletes split into teams by gender and ability but you also have an All Youth team. The Teams Audit feature will help you make sure that all your youth athletes are on the All Youth team.

This tutorial video will guide you through running a team membership audit.


Update a Team Roster

A team's roster can be updated in a number of ways. On the Portal, tap Teams, then tap on the home icon.

You will see tiles to add member, remove members and update roster.


Get Email Addresses

The Get Email Addresses page is where an administrator or coach can get email addresses for members of the club or a team. You can copy/paste the email addresses to your preferred email system. You can access this page from various places in iCrew like the club home page and the Teams tab on the Portal Page.


Today

The Today page shows a recap of scheduled activity at your boathouse today. All sessions and reservations are shown. Activity for tomorrow is also shown. You can also select any date to show activity for that day and the day following.

You will see tiles to get you to each session's information, check-in and line-ups page. If the line-ups for the session are still marked private (not yet shared with members) you'll see a small red private eye icon displayed under the line-ups image.

If your club allows boat reservations for independent rowing, you'll see a tile for each reservation scheduled for that day.


Private Lineups

Line-ups for a session can be kept hidden or private until the line-ups have been finalized. This is a useful feature to use while a coach is working on line-ups for a practice session or regatta and they don't want the athletes to see the work in-progress.

On each session you can use the Line-ups are private toggle to indicate whether the line-ups are private or public.


Little Red Man


If you're looking at sessions and you see an icon of a little red man, it represents a "private eye" which simply indicates that the line-ups for the session are private. Once a coach makes the line-ups public, the little red man will not appear.

The Send Message page can be used to send message to members. This page makes it very easy to send a message to all members of a team. There is support for formatting of the message and you can include links in a message too.


Info About Bcc Line

The Bcc line is very useful to avoid recipients from doing a "reply all" and flooding other recipient's email Inbox.

NOTE: If a member shows up in this field after selecting from a team/squad roster, that member specified to not share their email address with other club members. To change this behavior, the member must check the box on their profile labeled Share your info with other members.


Add a Banner Image for Messages

You can add a club-branded banner image to all emails sent from iCrew. Watch this video to learn how to create and upload your club's image file.

NOTE: The banner image file can be either a .jpg or a .png file.

On your club profile, you can add an email signature and can be added to messages sent from the Send Message page.


Upload a File

Club administrators and coaches can upload files into iCrew to be shared with members. To upload a file, go to the club home page and tap the File Manager tile. After you upload a file you can copy the link, then use the Send Message page where the link can be pasted into the message.


Change Boat Rigging

For any boat that can be rigged for sweep or sculling, you can quickly swap between the two using the Swap Rigging page which can be accessed from the Shells tab on the Portal Page.

If you would like to change a sweep boat's seat rigging configuration (for example, if you rig a boat to be starboard stroked) you can do this from the Update Shell page. Change the Current seat config value.

When a boat has any open damage reports, you may see !! prefixing the boat name on its tile.


Club Locations

In addition to your main boathouse, you can create other locations where club members get together like a common site for regattas, a room or area in the boathouse, or a facility for indoor fitness and training. To add a location, open the Club tab on the Portal Page, tap the Locations tile, then tap the New location... button.


Registration Profiles

The goal of a Registration Profile is improve and streamline the process of getting a new club member registered into iCrew and onto the appropriate teams/groups and associated to the right documents and fee items.

While the use of registration profiles is not mandatory, if you don't setup registration profiles, new members will see a list of all teams/squads during the iCrew registration process where they have to select the teams/squads to join.

To create or update a registration profile, tap the Registration Profiles tile on the Club tab of the Portal Page.

Here is a sample list of possible registration profiles for a club that has both youth and master rowers:

Let's take a Novice Girl Rower as an example. For this club, when a new novice girl registers in iCrew, she needs to land on both the Novice Girls team and the All Youth team. Associated with the All Youth team is a Code of Conduct document and a Liability Waiver document. In addition, there is a Youth Spring Rowing fee item associated with the All Youth team.

When a new novice girl needs to register, they can be pointed to the club's Registration Page where a list of registration links is available (there is a link for each defined registration profile). The person clicks on the Novice Girl Rower link to start the registration process. On the sign-up page in iCrew, specific instructions for Novice Girls may optionally be displayed.

After registering in iCrew, the person will have been automatically placed on both the Novice Girls and All Youth teams. And she will immediately see the two documents and one fee item in iCrew.


Register a New Member

NOTE: If you're a club member, contact a coach or club administrator for instructions on registering in iCrew.

A person can tap on your club's icon on the iCrew Log On page to start the registration process. They will need to know your club's Member registration code which a current member can provide to them.


Member in Good-Standing

A member is considered to be in good-standing if they have paid all their fees, submitted all their documents, completed all required forms, and are not missing any information on their profile.

For documents and fee items, only those where the Block new member until signed box is checked are considered when determining a member's standing.

iCrew can automatically create a fee item for each regatta. A payment tracking record is created for all members that attend the regatta. NOTE: If you do not want iCrew to automatically create regatta payment fee items, uncheck the box labeled Auto-generate regatta fee record on the team profile.

Club Store Page

Your club Store page is a convenient place to provide links to selected fee items and documents. The Store page can be accessed from the club home page.

If you would like a fee item or document to be listed on the Store page, just check the Show on Store page checkbox on the fee item or document page.


Fee Item Payment Options

If you're using PaySimple, you can set up a fee item with multiple payment options. Set the Amount due field to 0 (zero) and specify the options in the Description field.

Each option starts with an asterisk followed by a description and amount (including the $ sign). Here is an example of three payment options that you can copy/paste:

NOTE: A description of the fee item can precede the list of items. An item amount can also be $0 to allow the member to enter the payment amount.

Select your payment option from the list.
* Individual Membership $400
* Family Membership $775
* Student Membership $350

If you create a fee item for accepting a donation, you can create a list that represents the designation of the donation. Set the Amount due field to 0 (zero) so that the club member can enter the amount they wish to donate.

Monthly Recurring Payments

If you're using PaySimple, you can set up a fee item that automatically gets processed once a month. The payment can be on going or you can specify how many months for the payment to occur.


Annual Recurring Payments

If you're using PaySimple, you can set up a fee item that automatically gets processed once a year. The day the member makes the first payment is the day that the payment will be processed in subsequent years.


Payment Reminder Email

iCrew can send a payment reminder email to members with unpaid fee items. You can turn this option on by checking the Send payment reminder on the fee item. Payment reminders are sent on Monday of each week.


Practice Session Line-ups

The Line-ups page is where you can set boat line-ups for a given practice session. To quickly set line-ups, you can copy line-ups from a previous session by using the Get other line-ups option as shown here.

Elections, Surveys, Forms & Quizzes

iCrew supports running an election or survey. You can also create a custom form to collect information from a club member or person. All three items can be collectively referred to as "Forms".

Elections are always anonymous while surveys can be either anonymous or not. A custom form is never anonymous and is used to collect information from a member.

With elections and surveys, you have the option of creating a team/squad to represent an election and/or survey committee where only members of the teams/squads can access the election and survey admin functionality. The committee teams/squads are designated on your Club Profile. With custom forms, all club admins can access the forms admin functionality.

With elections and surveys, you select club members to receive a ballot or survey. With forms, members can be invited to complete the form or any member can access and fill out any form from your club home page. You can also designate a form as "public". This allows you to post a link to the form on your club website for members of the public can access and fillout a form.

A form can also be setup as a quiz for club members. In the list of answers for a question, you must precede the correct answer with a > symbol.


Document Tracking

You can create a Document record in iCrew for things like by-laws, code of conduct, safety guidelines, etc. And a .pdf file can be uploaded and associated with any iCrew Document record. You can associate a Document to any number of teams so that you can track document status for members of the associated teams.

If a Document is something that just must be read and signed by the member (for example, a code of conduct), check the Only signature(s) required checkbox so that iCrew can collect an e-signature from each member. If a document also requires a parent's signature, you have two options; parents can also have an iCrew account and their account can be associated with their child's account. Once this "family" association is made, iCrew can also make sure a parent signs the document. If parents do not have their own iCrew account, the document will have to be printed, signed by both parent and child, then submitted to the club office.

If a Document requires information to be provided by the member, such as name, address, etc., the member would print the document, fill it out, then submit it to the club office. You can then indicate the document is "on file" as members turn in a document. All the Document status by member is available for tracking in iCrew.

Each Document can have an expiration date set so if you have seasonal documents, you would create a new Document at the start of each season.
