  1. Integrated Newsletter which includes thumbnail photos and story headlines

    I'd like to have something to send out weekly which includes stories from the past week (thumbnails and a clickable headline that sends the reader to the story). Having a feature which allows someone to select stories from "this date" to "this date" which would grab all the headlines/cover photo thumbnail from that story would be a good way to recap views on what is happening in athletics. Not all viewers check the website every day...

    I've seen a feature like this (and worked with one) through a Sidearm site and it is incredibly handy and very simple to do.

    • Multiple categories for a news story (Player of the Week)

      Have a news category for Player of the Week, where you could choose upon adding the story which sports it goes to. Some weeks it could be two sports, but others it could be five sports.

      • Allow link to more than two events per news article for tournaments or a weekend series, for example.

        I know there are ways around this, but I'd like for every game/match on the schedule to have a "recap" link. This can only happen if a new release is written for every two games/matches, unless you post the same release more than once.

        • Allow to show scores of games in progress

          I'd like the ability to update scores for games in progress for fans to see what's going on that are just surfing by. Also, for the games that are in progress, do not allow them to update the overall & conference record just to avoid some conference. Only once game is finished should the records be updated.

          • Opponents Name on Schedule Linked to their Athletic Website

            Be able to click on your opponent in your Schedule and have it take you to the opponents Athletic Website. Davenport University has this ability... http://www.dupanthers.com/schedule.aspx?path=wbball

            This would be nice for SIDs and Fans because it would be easy to view opponents information and make sure times and dates are correct. This would also be great for SIDHelp because it will allow more web browsers and SIDs to see your work. More advertisement!

            • Making Athlete Spotlight pull from Bios

              Making Athlete Spotlight pull from Bios so you don't have to create it every time ... or even be able to setup a rotation for a few weeks so you don't have to create the Spotlight everytime. This would keep it fresh without having to change it every week or every couple of weeks and better rotate people in...

              • Option to integrate multiple Facebook (Twitter) pages.

                I would like the ability to send information to multiple Facebook (Twitter) pages. We have created and allowed our teams to run a Facebook page like they would their own website (essentially a way for the teams to connect on a more personal level with students, parents, fans etc). However, currently I can only post to one page, which is obviously to our main Athletics page. In order to reach every possible outlet, I would like to post to our main Athletics page, main Academic page, and a specific sport page.

                I see this feature functioning similar to HootSuite (a…

                • Locking "Notes" Section on Conference Pages

                  It would be very helpful to be able to LOCK the notes section on the schedule for conference pages. I.e. When I go in an enter our tournament schedule I put "GPAC Volleyball Tournament - First Round" that would stick on the schedule. I have schools that have SID Help Pages and they put in "GPAC VB Tourney" or "GPAC First Round" and any time the post their score it overrides my notes section. Its a looks thing but it makes the scores for tournaments look consistent and then I don't have to redo it.

                  • Adding the ability for a PREVIEW link prior to contests (similar to the results/recap/stats links that appear post-game/event)

                    This is for those that do game notes and/or preview their games. I know I'm not alone in saying a preview link prior to contests on our "ticket stub" or all sports schedules or team-specific schedule pages would be ideal. Many of us spend a lot of time on game notes or prepping an upcoming game whether it be at home or on the road. Giving our fans additional access to our notes or previews would be great in my opinion. Added exposure to the game and student-athletes!

                    • Conference Score Ticker

                      I think it would be nice to be able to have a html code that would incorporate all the conference scores... SID's could then use this at the top of their respective athletic homepages.

                      • CSV Import Option for Schedules

                        I think it would be time efficient to be able to import a schedule via CSV similar to the way it is done with rosters.

                        • Roster Page: Add redshirt years (RS FR) in "Class" Dropdown Section

                          Right now we have the asterik for redshirts. I use that for when they are actually redshirted. I would suggest adding RS FR, RS SO, RS JR, and RS SR to the class dropdown menu so that you can show exactly what year they are in the "year" section of the roster. It just makes sense.

                            Same concept as the pregame links for live stats, live audio and live video, but have them show up for postgame so that video highlights and photo galleries (Created at a different site for photo sales) could easily be accessible.

                            • Differentiate between home and neutral games

                              On the mobile site, there is no bolding of home games, so neutral and home both show up as vs. and look the same. Even on the main web site, more difference somehow would be good.

                                      • Add "recap" link in "edit event" part of schedule pages

                                        Add "recap" link in "edit event" part of schedule pages. Currently you can only link to two events when adding a recap. This would allow you to add the recap to multiple events.

                                        • Articles all end with the same text, similar to an email signature

                                          Something we like to do is include our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram tags at the end of a lot of our articles. "Don't forget to follow us here, here, and here!"
                                          I was wondering if it would be possible to create something of a "signature" feature, similar to the ones at the end of emails, that automatically end articles with the same thing every time I post.
