Yes! We understand that there are many situations when folks want to grant relatives or friends to access a team or group, including enabling them to use their own name to participate in our instant messaging/live game update feature, TeamSnap Live!
To accommodate this, one can create additional contacts and invite others to share access to their player’s TeamSnap team. To accomplish this, they can do the following from our browser version of TeamSnap (not the mobile app):
- Click on the name of the player on the roster page to get to their “Player Profile” page.
- Click on the “New Family Member” button to add contact information for additional persons who should be listed with this player. (EXAMPLES: Mom, Dad, legal guardian, emergency contact, spouse, etc.)
- To grant this new person the ability to access the team on their own, click the “Shared Access” box. The box will automatically appear once a valid email address has been entered.
- Click the “Save” button and an invitation to join the team will be automatically sent (you can elect not to send an invite by un-checking the “Send this contact an email invitation to join the team” check box). Note that the player on the Roster needs to have accepted their own invitation to join the team first before one can send such an invitation.
The invitation can be customized or the default wording can be used.
Any person with “Shared Access” can now access the player’s account with his/her own username and password. “Shared Access” allows a person to edit any player information, as well as the ability to add and edit other contacts. A person with Shared Access won’t be able to alter shared access settings (for themselves or others) or send/re-send invites.
IMPORTANT: Invitations to grant Shared Access may not be sent until the original roster member has accepted their invitation to join the team.
