Creating a team is necessary if you want to share your results or view Scores and results of other people
Unless you plan to be a solo swimmer in the system (which is also quite common among TritonWear users), you will want to join or create some teams so that you can share your results with coaches and other teammates.
Currently, creating and managing team memberships is available through your browser on a Tablet, Laptop or Desktop. Generally, if you are an athlete, you may not need to create a team but may want to join teams already created. Remember that TritonWear does not limit how many teams you can create or join, and you have many options.
It's essential to know that you can only access the Teams section from a browser on your computer or laptop or the TritonWear app on a tablet.
You may access a single team on mobile by setting it as your default home view in your settings. For more on what you can see using different devices, check out this infographic.
Creating a brand new team
Go to your Teams page in your Settings. Your primary Teams Landing Page could be an empty screen or a screen with your Team memberships.
If you want to create a team, you will see the "Create a Team" button in the top right corner.
Note that if you create a team here, this would be considered the top-level team or group within the club/ organization, and you will be the Team Owner.
If you want to create a team within another team or organization, that should be done with the "Create a Sub Team" button inside that specific Team Hub. Instructions for that can be found below.
When creating a team, you will be asked to fill out the following information:
Please fill it out as best as you can and "Save." Now that you have created a team, you may invite others to join your team and then assign them roles in the Manage Members tool.
Creating a sub-team within a team or organization
If you want to create a team within another, you must have an Admin or Coach role within that team.
To create a sub-team you must click the Create a Sub Team button WITHIN that Team Hub. Your Team Hub should be easily recognizable (see image below) as it will have your Team Structure and Calendar on the left and options for Activity Feed and Athletes in the middle.
Please make sure you are creating a team within the correct level. A simple structure with one leading organization and several squads will not be challenging to create. Still, organizations that wish to replicate the pyramid or tree structure of a National Federation need to be careful that they are creating teams at the correct level.
In the example above, a team created at the B level will create a new team in the C group. If you were to create a new team from the C group, you would create a sub-squad in the D level.
Within TritonWear, that might look something like the example below. The top-level is the organization also labelled as A. Nested within, there is a sub-team ( B level )with two teams and a C level with 4 squads.
To make another C squad you must press Create a Sub Team when looking at a B level and you can even go down more levels by creating a team when you have selected a C level. You can tell which team you have currently selected by the colour of your selected team on the left-hand menu and by the blue writing about your Activity Feed tab.
There is no set limit to how many levels of teams you can create but as a general guide, you should try to recreate the real-life structure you are working with, and know there is the flexibility to add additional layers and create breakout groups at different levels if needed.
