Get SafeSport | Admin Profile: Users with access to the internal Admin profile page may click the ‘Get SafeSport Updates’ button to look for a matching profile in the SafeSport platform. When a match is found and/or a more current verification is available, it will be inserted and replace the current results in Association. Future training completions will automatically be inserted as well.
Get SafeSport | My Account: For Team Admin self-service, the ‘Get SafeSport Updates’ lookup feature is also available in My Account. The SafeSport Certificate presentation was also simplified and given the same look & feel as other certificates.
Training Completion Acceptable Date: Results from the new SafeSport training platform will now follow the same acceptance rules as results retrieved from the USSF Learning Center, so that orgs can control the cut-off date for aged training. This was not applicable to the Center’s previous LMS since results were only available immediately after completion [and not historically].
Identifying 18+ Players: To make it easier for orgs to assess which players should be SafeSport certified [at this time], the Player Compliance report now includes the player’s actual age calculated at the time of running the report.
SafeSport Trained Icon: A new SafeSport feature displays the SafeSport Trained (ST) icon on the team roster page for players that are in verified status AND are 18 or older.
SafeSport Player Matching: When a player completes SafeSport training with a Stack associated profile, the player is automatically put into verified status (with the proper date/time stamp) in the Association platform. The SafeSport Verified overlay presents on the internal player profile page, My Account, and OLR. This is also true if the user has both an admin profile and a player profile. It is critical that a new user enters the SafeSport platform via the custom Stack URL.
Player Turned 18 Alert: A custom SafeSport alert for Players turning 18 was built to support critical Association/NGB level communication when a youth player becomes subject to adult SafeSport compliance rules. Organizations may customize the default alert (relevant macros available) and a configuration control when in time (days before, on, after the player’s 18th birthday) the notification is triggered.
General Safety & Compliance
Org Content for Club Display: Two new content templates were built at Association level to provide organizations a direct way to create and display custom compliance information, direction, and other org specific matters to Team Admins/Volunteers and Registrars inside the Club experience.
Background Check Integration: The integrated background check solution was re-engineered, greatly improving order submissions and response times to mitigate seasonal bottlenecks.
Risk Status History: A new Risk Status History feature contains data related to a user’s past and current risk statuses and expiration dates. The page provides Association and NGB users with details on the specific value that was added, by whom, and when.
Youth Admin Risk Management: New custom logic was created to automatically update a youth volunteer/team admin’s risk status and systematically assign an expiration date based on the individual’s future 18th birthday (available upon request).
Verification Accepted Date Control: A new certificate verification control feature was developed, providing organizations a method to configure the earliest date a SafeSport, Concussion, or Sudden Cardiac Arrest training completion received from an integrated learning platform should result in ‘Verified’ status per the org’s specific business rules.
Compliance Widget Profile Views: Our new ‘Next’ and ‘Previous’ record functionality greatly enhanced the widget’s lookup feature at all organizational levels! By clicking into any one compliance item, users can view the high-level result lists, access the player/admin profile details from any record, then navigate between profile pages. The profile order matches the widget’s current display list order.
Compliance Widget Background Check Submitted: The widget’s background check/risk status component at all tiers was enhanced to include a ‘BGC last submitted’ date, reducing confusion with the existing ‘last application’ date. This helps registrars determine if/when follow up actions may be necessary.
Team Compliance Status Filters: New Team Lookup functionality allows users to filter on a variety of system assigned team compliance statuses as well as self-assigned activation readiness. Users can efficiently work with a well-defined subset of teams, which is especially beneficial in organizations where team activation is a multi-step process that involves users at various levels in the organization.
Adding Players/Admins to Activated Team: To ensure that teams remain in compliance, any new Player or Team Admin rostered post-activation is now automatically added to an ‘Unassigned Member’ section, regardless of registration method. When pushing the Unassigned Members up to the active roster, all team activation rules are systematically checked. Any compliance issues generate actionable alerts for items that must be resolved before rostering is allowed.
In Person ID Verification: A simple ‘ID Verified’ feature has been added to the Admin Profile page. This was done to support the need of clubs conducting in-person ID verification of first-time admins to ensure that a person is a match to the identity used.
Security User Management: System logic introduced in additional organizations to only allow Lookup of registered Admins when adding new Security Users to the system, preventing manual key-ins. This ensures a more complete profile of Security Users, including the possibility of background checks (available upon request).
Release & Transfer Tracking: To ensure that players’ R&T history remain intact, we created new logic to not allow a team to be deleted if the team history includes any player involved in a Release/Transfer.
ELA Management: Similar to the existing organization level logic, enhanced functionality will now automatically auto-assign ELAs at all system levels to any nested lower tiers. A lower tier is not able to deactivate/unassign an ELA established by a higher tier in the season setup grid.
Travel Request ELAs: The new ELA functionality for Travel Requests consistently displays ELA information along with date, time and user signature on the request summary page (regardless of application status).
