This setup guide is for clubs where some or all teams/groups are already using the Spond app. Even if you're not the group admin, we still recommend that you follow these steps.

If none of your teams/groups uses Spond already. you can follow this guide instead.



Spond Club Settings

Set up Member fields - You have the options to add additional bespoke fields to the default fields in Spond Club.

  • Set up Member types - ie. Junior member, Adult member, Player, Supporter, etc.

  • Set up your signup form and link the URL to your webpage or on another platform.

  • Go through and edit Group settings.

  • Go through and edit Roles for group admins.


Departments and Groups in Spond Club

To import a group, follow the steps in this video guide, which are also outlined below:

Import Group: You will see all of your groups here, and also a link that you can send to the group admins to get access to their groups.

  • The existing groups will not be deleted when you import them. They are now integrated into your Spond Club platform. Group admins manage their groups just like before.

  • If some of your groups/teams don't use Spond, you can import those members through Excel. Do this after you have imported the existing Spond groups.

    • You can read how to import members here.

  • After you have imported the groups or the Excel template, all the members will appear under the 'Unprocessed' tab. Here you will potentially get a duplicate alert and it is important that you go through these duplicates one by one. Deleting one of them will result in members losing access to their Spond groups.

  • All duplicates will have an orange warning.

  • To go through them, click on the name (do not select) and you will see an image that looks like this:

  • You then press 'Show duplicate and merge':

  • If it is the same member, go through the data and press 'Merge'. If the untreated and active member has a discrepancy, this data will be in red. In the right column, you can select which data the merged member should have.

  • If it is not the same member, but (for example) siblings, press 'Cancel' and 'Approve as a new member'.
