TeamSnap is the #1 Sports Team Management app for coaches who'd rather manage
their teams than manage their technology. Easy to use. Loved by parents.
TeamSnap is team management made simple. As a coach, you do a lot less coaching
than you signed up for. You juggle text chains and mes...
Great Concept... how kids still have so many quirks?
This could be the new standard for coaches and teams but many quirks and unintuitive features hold it back. 1. I’ve entered the location of the games, yet on the map it still says address not located but the pin and the math is exactly the address I just put in. Totally confusing parents. 2. Inside of the app, in the email section, I cannot reply to an email. Is this intentional? Should I be replying through my Gmail or Hotmail account? I’m not sure?!?!? 3. The attendance feature is apparently not activated. Apparently the team “creator “has to set this up. Not sure if it is a paid service??? 4. I don’t understand what ends up on the Home screen. The schedule seems to be solid but sometimes there is missing information on the Home screen for next games, practices, etc. This is totally confusing parents. I’ve had to tell them to skip the Home screen altogether and just click on the schedule. When parents can’t depend on something, it is scary how quickly they will abandon it. I would fix these, and the other issues mentioned in these numerous reviews quickly before I create my own app and take over your business!!! You’ve got more work to do than just changing out the Air filter!
Messaging needs work
This would be an amazing app and an easy 5 star review IF the developers would make some easy fixes to the messaging. First, there is no reason to have so many different options for communication. Just have one team chat function. The chat function is what allows managers and coaches to put something out and players and parents to respond. The others are not even needed. The alert function works for putting out last minute information but no one can respond to it. They have to then move the conversation into the team chat if they need to respond. Also, the notification function of the team chat is horrible. Our team is getting notifications approximately 30% of the time when someone sends a chat message. Also, add the app icon badge that lets you know when a chat message has been sent. That’s the easiest way to know you have a message. Make the team chat a one stop for all collaborative communications and this app would be perfect. If the “alert” is such an important function, add the ability to mark a chat as urgent and you have the same functionality but it is all in one place. These are easy changes and unless the communication features are improved, I will be encouraging my fellow coaches to seek a better app for managing their teams.
Great app with one flaw they clearly are choosing not to fix
PROs: This app is great. Easy to add teams from multiple sports to organize practices, games, field locations, notes, etc. Also seamless integration with Applemaps or Waze (dependent on team manager putting right gps location into teamsnap). Ability to view schedule by sport, or across all teams for an overview of all the sports-related shuttling you have to plan around for the next month is indispensable. I literally cannot think of any way to make it more efficient to manage multiple kids in multiple sports. CON: it is great to be able to share files as attachments to team communications (documents, pictures of the team, etc.). This can only be done via computer, not tablet or mobile device. This is absurd in the year 2018. Every app on every mobile device has seamless ability to take a picture and attach to whatever communication is being sent. If anyone minding the shop cares about the customer experience, someone in the brain-trust at Teamsnap will put someone on a project to add this feature, and in 6 Months we’ll all enjoy it.
Good, but Photo viewer needs work.
This is a very popular easy to use team app. Have used it for years on many teams. One nice feature is the photo sharing ability built in under the “media’ tab. They include a generous amount of space and you can upload full-res photos which can then be shared by team members. The one downside is viewing. The standard viewer is 4x6, and it does not support using keyboard arrows like windows and other apps to scroll through the pictures. Instead you have to click the little next or previous arrows above the pick. Very monotonous and uncomfortable. Even more annoying is if you want to see the full size image you can click on the picture, but there are no controls to go to the next (or previous) pic! And since they don’t support keyboard direction keys, you have to figure out for yourself what to do. Which is hit your browser back button to take you back to the previous screen. Hard to believe something so simple (yet important) to basic functionality was overlooked. Hopefully they’ll add it soon.
Best app ever for Teamsports
Great app. Spend the money on the full access and get your team on board to only communicate to through one app. If you really get parents and players on board, it will remove a lot of communication problems, drama, and repeated questions. You do need one person to really make sure all info is communicated once then the system will send a reminder. Encourage all players and parents to use app on their phones. When a question arises, refer them there. All players can get email from site. No more asking manager for it. Can separate messages to certain players. No more long strings of reply all. Have your players mark availability and no more questions of where is coming or not. Have a player that is sick, not it in there availability. Beat thing is parents can subscribe to calendar and it will import to their calendar. No more manual inputs. If manager change game Love this app!
Love You Developers!
TeamSnap as an App is great at what it does. We’ve used it for our daughters sports ranging from Softball and Volleyball to Basketball and Soccer. It’s awesome. The communication and schedule sharing changes the way you interact as a Coach and a Parent. But, behind this incredible App are the true heroes....the Developers! I don’t know them, but I feel like I do. As a software developer myself, I feel like we’re best friends already. If you have this App installed and an update becomes available, I implore you to read the release notes that go along with said update. They are humorous and good natured, and offer a glimpse into the fun and joy that the developers put into making this great App for the world. Thank you TeamSnap Developers! Whoever you are, wherever you are...
Fix Refresh Issues
Recently for each game, refresh issues are serious. The RSVP are not refreshed. It’s happening from last 30 days or so. In the previous versions, pull down used to show dotted circle as progress for downloading new data. With current version, even after repeated pull down it doesn’t refresh. You log out and log in and data is still stale for list of players. It’s very painful as you have to use web browser to review games RSVPs to make decisions about declarations of the games with the list of current players. It’s irritating. Please fix this issue. I like TeamSnap as it makes organizers life easier and we pay for ultimate subscription. If I have to really ask for new feature set, it will be various styles of polls for collecting feedback, ratings and input. Single choice and multiple choices polls. It will be very helpful as organizers can gather data for many topics related to events and sports. Thank you keep the good work and stabilize this product.
Good app, needs to streamline message options
I’ve used this app for 3 seasons girls softball teams and it’s great - keeps team organized and parents informed. The thing that keeps it from getting 5 stars are the (too many) Messages options: Email doesn’t support reply all. You send an email out and it’s one and done. If you want to update that email, you have to compose a new email. Posts (Message Board) do not have attachment option. It would be helpful to pin a post at top with an important attachment so parents can refer back easily (instead of wading through emails). Alerts are confusing. I received a few alerts from a parent thinking it was sent to the whole team when it was just to me. Team Chat. I have no idea if everyone has seen a chat I’ve put out or if they even know how to access on their mobile phone app. People don’t tend to reply to chats, I think because it looks generic and you have no idea who’s reading - is it grandma, parent or friend who signed up kid? It would be great if your product team created a messaging option akin to a group text like whatsapp, where the user opts in a cell phone number and name to be used in a group where we can exchange messages, photos or attachments. This would replace team chat.
So frustrated with this app
This app came highly recommended and I’ve used it for about six months now but I’m not in love with it. I’ve had to resort to other apps to send messages to my team because through the Phone app I cannot send attachments. It is so frustrating, & time consuming, that I have to wait until I get home & log into my computer to send a file or pictures to my team. Most of the time I need to send a file or a picture while I’m out and I can’t do it from the app on my phone. I have even tried going in through Safari or Google on my phone and logging into my Team Snap & I still cannot attach a file or pic. Also when I do send an attachment in a message from my computer my parents using the phone app cannot see that attachment when they look at their messages & have to go to their email or log into it from their computer. Another huge plus I have found with the other app is that I can schedule emails or alerts to go out at a certain date & time and that I have found is such a huge help for a busy team parent/coach. If you could make these improvements he would make this so much more user-friendly. Especially for on the go busy people. There are some great aspects to this app but these few things are pretty important and without them I won’t be using this again next season. Thx!!
Please fix this promising app
First off, the concept of this app is great. Our team really uses all aspects of it. That being said, the programmers really need to fix the many bugs in the program. Such as: if you update/change a photo using the browser version, the iOS app doesn’t not update or sync. The only way to get this to happen is to delete the iOS app and re-download it. Then the new info is there. This needs to be done every time there is an info change via the browser version. Also, when uploading a photo with the required specs, the app still chops off the players heads. The only work around I found was putting a large border around the photo, so the crop wouldn’t cut off most of the picture. I would love to give this app 5 stars, but it is beyond frustrating to get things to sync up between devices. If I’m missing something here, I’d love to know a short cut rather than deleting the app and re-downloading it. Please fix “what could be a great" app!
Wonderful means of communication! As a coach I know that in today’s busy and hectic world communication is a must. Keeping players, coaches and family members informed throughout the season is an absolute must. This app makes that so simple, so as a coach I can spend more time focusing on things that make us a better team and less time worried about keeping everyone informed of information as it changes throughout the season. An absolute must in today’s busy and demanding world. Great app and easy to use. Couldn’t be happier. Coach Keplar
Used to love the app, but not since they changed look
With multiple teams for multiple kids, this has always been a great tool. However now it defaults to the last team I was viewing and then when you go to the home viewer it has create a new team as the top pick. How often is someone creating a new team versus looking at their team. The old look was much more user friendly-open the app and pick the team I need to view. Also, not sure how you can fix the multiple accounts per team. I have an account, but when my child is created by the coach they get an account, so when There are alerts there are multiple views I have to do. I like the fact that at least now I can go In and clear the extra alerts via a drop down at the top, but just wish I didn’t have two accounts per team.
Still needs tweaks to make it a viable player
This app is not bad, but it’s far from great. There are a couple updates I’d like to see in the very near future that would at least bump it up. 1) Please, please, please make it so we can heart or like a message in the chat. Right now it’s borderline unbearable because the only way you know the group has seen your message is if the type a reply. Also, important to note if this update is made...if someone likes your comment, only the person who made the comment would get a push notification. Everyone should be able to see who liked it and the number of likes a comment has received. 2) Allow folks to get notifications when someone makes a new Post (not in messages, Post) and when a reply to a post is made. And please allow pictures in posts. This would really helpful when trying to coordinate selling Football squares or other fundraisers. I like the idea of having a place for Posts, to keep information consolidated and keep the Messages clean...but if the group doesn’t get notified via push notification for posts and replies to posts...it’s pretty useless. I really hope the developers read this and make these updates. I know it would go a long way with this user!
My second review. I hope lots of users read this and ask their team managers to abandon this platform. Sure, they lured in users with some well executed features, but it seems the plan was bait and switch. Not only do they charge a usage fee for the team management, but they abuse the team participants with advertisements on every click, and are charging a crazy fee for an ad free experience. It’s one step short of extortion. I used to love this app, now I hate it. I hope the owners of this company crash and burn on what appears to be a money grab IPO start-up play. Your greed is detestable. How about fewer features and an ad free experience. I mean do parents really need real time score when they are on the sidelines watching the game. Shameless commercialism. Vote with you wallet and put these money grubbers out of business. Ask your coach to find a new app. There are others out there who are not exploiting you and your kids.
New UI update terrible
I am a diehard TeamSnap user and really loved (and relied on) this the app for many years... until recently. Ads being placed within schedules while updating availability is beyond annoying, and this week’s UI overhaul is awful. I have to tap and click in too many places now, whereas before the app was simple and clean, with a single click on an icon instead of several clicks within drag down menus. Because of these changes, I now have to search for my kids’ multiple teams, and then search for the functions within their TeamSnap site, which has made this app more time consuming. Worse yet, I don’t see teammates updating their availability regularly anymore, probably because of this bad update. Please go back to a simpler, cleaner, and time saving way of navigating this app ... and get rid of ads in scheduling update sections!
