The administrator can choose 'Attending by default' on events. With this feature, attendees will automatically be set as 'Attending' when new events are set up.
The players (and/or their parents/guardians) can then withdraw from the event if they are unable to attend. If it is a recurring event, they can do so before the event invite is sent out.
Spond will still send a reminder in the form of a push notification unless the participant decides to turn this feature off. They can do so by pressing the three dots in the top right corner and 'Stop push notifications' or 'Stop invite notifications for series'.
We recommend using this feature for matches and training sessions, where there is a reasonable assumption that attendees will be present, barring unexpected circumstances.
