Updated: Jan 30


Recruiting Profile on Computer and Cell Phone

TIP:

Download our worksheet (Excel for PC or Numbers for Mac) as a handy place to gather and store the information you will input while creating and maintaining your Player Recruiting Profile. You certainly do not have to use the worksheet, but by using this guide, you can easily copy and paste text and website links into your online form fields without hunting for information (names, stats, dates, email addresses, phone numbers, websites, etc.) while working in the form and before submitting the info. Find and download worksheets here.

 

In addition to text field inputs, you will also be able to upload photos and documents from your computer. To keep your image files organized, create a folder on your computer to store the photo images and document files you will be uploading to your Profile. You can add or change your images and documents as often as you like so having them all in one place makes it easy to quickly update your files as needed. Store the worksheet with your image and document files in the same folder to have everything you need at hand.


REMEMBER:

  • You do not need to complete the sections in any particular order.

  • Unless a field is required, you do not need to enter info until it is available.

  • Most fields have instructions or suggested input format directly beneath.

  • If you don't have info for a particular field, enter NA or leave it blank as indicated.

  • Make sure to include the prefix https:// before a website address.

  • To add videos to your site, upload your separate videos to YouTube, Hudl, Vimeo, Wistia, or any other video hosting site that creates a sharable URL link to your video. Enter the video links in the appropriate fields in your form. Each video will play in a separate window.

  • Return to the input form often through your member dashboard to add and update information as needed.

  • Make sure to click the Save button at the bottom of the page each time you finish updating a section.
