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

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'.
