The Internal and External player header are cleaned up and made more equal.

External:

Search team and seasonal team

A tab is added where we show the result of "Teams", so not only current teams are shown but if needed also teams from the past.
By searching a team name and a year the results will be shown.

Administration → Addresses: improvement on filtering

An additional option is added to the advanced filtering: Any seasonal team

We noticed especially staff working in multiple teams where not shown properly.

By using the "Any seasonal team" filter, the full squad is shown, so players and staff.


Export personal data to Excel format

A generic Excel document is created allowing you to export data related to players and staff:

  • Addresses
  • Guardianship info
  • Personal identities
  • Health insurances
  • Bank accounts
  • Etc



Dashboards

Scouting planning overview widget

A new widget is available showing all scouting appointments (scouting planning) or of specific tournaments.

You select any of your calendar filters, so based on this filter the scouting planning will show:

Widget showing plain text

If you want to bring news or write down a guideline, you can use the text widget to just display plain text on each dashboard type:

  • Main
  • Team
  • Player

Module 03 - Online analysis

Improved XML import - Playermapping

When importing a Sportscode or MyVA XML, it is possible to directly map players.

Meaning the player tagged inside the xml those events will be automatically linked to the player profile inside SoccerLAB.

We have improved the playermapping itself and the speed of uploading.


Module 06 - Medical 

New medical form

The injury card has a new format, showing the information in tabs. Pls contact your CSM if you want to use the new format.

Steps of training participation

The status tab allows to mark the steps a player needs to return to play. You can define the days a player has to stay in a certain training participation grade with the From To dates. Pls ask your CSM to get the settings and rights to use this new feature.

Injury information - Location and Work Accident

2 new data fields are introduced to the injury form, you can enter the location of an injury and mark, if the injury should be registerred as "working accident".

Tags

Generic tags can be assigned also to injuries / illnesses / preventions. This makes it possible to filter on injuries based on the tags and even use the new audit trial tags, to follow a certain process of an injury. The tags are managed inside the Tag Management.

Improved Medical notes

The medical notes entry and overview inside the player profile has improved, pls click next to the player picture the 4th icon to open the medical notes of the player.

Pain level in Medical diary

Inside the medical diary form the "Pain level" could be activated, so indicate the subjective feeling of the player (scale 0-10).

Pain level in historical view

The Pain level can also be added to the historical view of the injury. In combination with the progress (scale of 5) or instead of the progress. Additionally, the pain level will be shown in list views of injuries (latest entered pain level related to that injury) and also inside the medical diary.

Prevention has improved

The option to manage preventions has been approved. So indicating a player could get injured if no action is taken can be registered. The format is adapted to the new injur form in tabs, and also the data fields can be configured to be almost the same as for a real injury. Pls check with your CSM, which settings you would like to use.

Module 8 - Scouting

Advanced scouting within a game

Inside the Player evaluations of a game form it is possible to select a Source and a Template.

So not only Quick scouting is available, but also detailed scouting.

Player follow up

On the main dashboard a widget related to "Tags" is added.

You link several tags to a player profile, inside the setting of this widget it can be decided which tags to show or even hide.

Widget displaying highlights

Inside this widget, scores of a criteria/category/GS/PS/CS can be displayed in several ways:

  • Number
  • Letter
  • Icon
  • Drop-down

Played games

Inside the existing widget "Games" we added a filter option.

Meaning you can filter by:

  • All games
  • Scouted games
  • Scouted games without reports for the player
  • Scouted games with reports for the player

This can help out checking if a player was watched in several games, but for some games no report was created because he might underperformed.

Total sum of a category

A new setting within the template is added to set the category as SUM instead of an AVERAGE.

This SUM can be used within the new widgets.

Ea: A category consists of 6 criteria, so the max sum could be 60 (when rating 1-10), when a player scores 20 points, we calculate a score of 30% in relation to the 60.

Scouting form adjustment

Source and template

We now show the Source and Template below each other.

Title

A setting is added to show a Title, this title is copied over from the report template name, but it is possible to overwrite this title.

We are switching over from GREEN to a BLUE pitch, inside the player header and the shadow team this is already adjusted.

On all other places, this will be adjusted soon.
