When you first see this Web site, you’ll probably think it’s rather bare. There’s just a log in field and a Sign Up button. RosterBot is a more refined version of the meeting site I brought you a few days ago. Here you will be able to enter the e-mail address of your team, enter in the date of your event and RosterBot will then go to work polling everyone to see when they’ll attend, etc. It will then show you the results!
The registration process is simple. Start by clicking the red Sign Up button. The next step is to enter your name, e-mail address, phone number and password. Your phone number is optional, as you only need to supply it if you need your team members to have a contact number for you. Now, click the Next button. While you continue setting up your team event, your confirmation e-mail will come (mine showed up almost instantly). All of this is also explained on the right hand side of the page.
The team fields include the name of the team, sport (optional), logo, URL, team type, postal code (also optional, but if you put in a postal code, it will provide a map for your guests), country, state, city and the checkbox for the terms and agreements. When you’re finished, just click I’m Done!
Your next step is to add players. To do so, just click the Add button next to the Add More Members option. There’s an e-mail field, name field, phone number, position and jersey number to fill out. When you have all your members added, click the OK, Next button. Now, you’ll need to fill out your time zone, query time, respond time and manager report options. Those are simply the times when you want things to happen. For example, by default, it is set to query your members three days before the event.
Now, you can move on to the calendar page, which is where you will set up your events. Here you’ll see a calendar where you can pick the date, as well as, fill out the event fields of date, time, location, etc. You must have an event title and location to move on.
This site is very easy to use and it looks great! It will walk you through each step to make your next event so much easier to plan. I think it’s useful whether you’re planning a Little League baseball game or a board meeting. I know it has made its way into my favorites!
