We have put together a list of topics on how best to use the Krida platform. If you have any comments, please do write to us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you.
If you are already playing in a badminton group (or) a club, you can create a club on Krida mobile app. When you are creating the club, the app assumes that you are an admin of the club but can certainly change this at a later stage and pass on the administration role to someone else in the club.
On the home screen, you will find the ‘My Clubs’ section where you can click on the ‘Create New Club’ button. Alternatively, you can also click on the ‘Club’ icon in the bottom navigation bar and start creating a club.
You will be redirected to the Club Details screen where you can start entering the basic club information like the club name, when was the club first formed, a brief description of what the club is, whether its a social or professional club, any contact details of the club administrator, where do the club members usually play, and finally the schedule or when the club members usually play. All this information is visible to anyone who is using the Krida mobile app, this is to help anyone who is interested in joining your club. You can certainly change this on the club settings if you don’t want your basic club details to be visible to anyone and are not accepting club joining requests or new members. But don’t be overwhelmed, as most of the fields are optional and are only required once.
You are then on the ‘logo design screen’ for your club where you can choose from some of the default logos that we provide (or) you could upload your own image that will be reflected on the club. We have added flexibility into the app so you can select an icon, add your own colour and opacity too! The club logo is important as this is visible to anyone who is searching for your club should you choose to make the basic club details public.
You are then on the ‘add members screen’ where you can search from your phonebook contacts list or add one by one manually. By default everyone is marked as a player to save you some time but you can certainly change that.
You are next onto the ‘club settings screen’ where you can manage a few settings related to the club.
The club is now created and you should be able to see the Club screen where you can book sessions, manage members and many more. If you have added members to the club at the time of creation, they will all receive notifications asking to join Krida app (or) will receive in-app notifications if they are already part of Krida. They should be able to either approve or reject your invitation and when approved, they will be able to access your club.
On the home screen, you will find the ‘My Clubs’ section where you can click on the search button and you are redirected to the ‘Search Clubs’ screen. You can search for clubs around you and the results are displayed both in the list view and map view.
You can select a given club and you will be redirected to the ‘Club Details’ screen where you can see the details of the club. You will find the club admins, their contact details and the days when the club usually plays. You can also find the total number of members, sessions and games in the club.
Once you have spoken to the club and if they are happy for you to join the club, you can click on the Join button. You will then be able to see the club in the ‘My Clubs’ section on the home screen, but when clicked on it you will be redirected to the club details screen. The club admins shall receive a request to approve / reject your joining request. Once approved, you will be notified of the approval which can be found in the notifications screen of the app. You will be able to then access all the features configured for the club.
As a club admin, you have 2 ways to update the club details. You can either search for the club, find the club details screen and click on the EDIT button to change its details (or) click on ‘View club details’ button on the Club home screen which takes you to the club details screen where you can click on the EDIT button to change is details. You will also be able to change the club logo if required.
In addition to adding members at the time of creating the club as explained in the first how-to section, you will also be click on the club members tile on the club home screen and you will be redirected to the club members screen. You can then click on the ‘Add club members’ button and you are then on the ‘add members screen’ where you can search from your phonebook contacts list or add one by one manually. By default everyone is marked as a player to save you some time but you can certainly change that.
On the club members screen, you will see a list of all the club members. You can click on the 3 vertical docs icon on a given member which displays the member options pop-up. You can then click on the ‘Remove member from club’ button, when pressed, the club member is removed from the club and the member is notified of the removal. However the club member is moved to the ‘Former members’ tab where the membership can be reinstated if required. The former members of the club are retained to ensure the historic games are left intact.
You can also change the member roles: player / admin. You shall also be able to see every member profile.
If you are already using the Krida app, you will be able to find the joining requests from an admin (or) someone who has submitted a request to join the club; on the club home screen under ‘My Invitations’ section or on the Notifications screen. You can either accept or reject the request and the respective parties are notified.
As an admin of the club you can click on the ‘Manage Sessions’ tile on the club home screen. You are then redirected to the sessions screen where you can click on the ‘Create new session’ button and again redirected to the ‘New session’ screen where you can enter the details of the session that you booked for a given date/time and location. Once created, all club members are then notified. The session can be seen on the members’ home screen and next session section where the players can check-in to the session. Note: only checked-in users (or) players added directly by the admin at the time of session creation are able to manage the session on the day of the session which is explained in the next section.
Managing a session is the heart of the app and the core functionality. If you have checked-in to the sesion (or) have been added to the session by the admin, you will be able to manage the session. On the day of the session, you can click on the ‘manage session’ button on the next session section of the club home screen. You are redirected to the ‘Manage session’ screen where you can see the players who are confined to that session.
Sometimes, there might be cases when some of the players might not have turned up on the day of the session. In some cases, there might be players who have turned up but haven’t confirmed on the app. In both cases, you will be able to click on ‘Add session players’ button where you are redirected to the club members screen with a list of players for selection. You will be able to add/remove players for that session.
This is an important step as you will need all the players who are available and turned up on the day of the session to allow the app to automatically create games to assist you with updating scores.
If there are court numbers added to the session at the time of creation, it is assumed that those courts are available to be used for the games. The app shall automatically create a game card for a given court and randomly populate players. If there are no courts added at the time of creating the session, then the app shall automatically create a single game card and randomly populate players.
You can edit a given game card, swap players, add / remove players, delete a game card, add scores, record videos, include time taken to complete the game. The game card is the most powerful tool to capture the scores for a given game.
The app shall automatically keep creating a new game card once you have saved a given game. If your session is complete and there is still an open game card with no scores, do not worry as that game will not be taken into account if you have clicked on ‘Finish session’ button.
The session stats are then updated across all relevant sections of the app including personal performance, day summary, my sessions & club sessions etc.
It is understandable that you might sometimes not be able to key-in the scores during the session. If you remember who you played with and the scores, you can always come back to the app and EDIT the session to log all the scores required.
You can click on the menu option on the left top hand corner of the screen and then click on your image where you can change your profile and all details required.
