Creating crews in Ludum allows you to send out crew lists to athletes before sessions but also to stay up to date if athletes change their plans.
Crews Page on Rowing & Canoe / Kayak Session
For Rowing and Canoe / Kayak sessions we allow you to create boats. For Rowing sessions we show all the rowing boat types. For canoeing & kayaking we show all the relevant boat types.
When you go to the crews page on a session for the first time you will be shown the screen below.
To create crews select the Boat type first
Clicking on a boat type will add the boat type to the blank area. Once you’ve selected a boat type you will be asked to name the crew and add further details on whether they are HW, LW, Junior, Senior and so on. Selecting a boat type allows you to use the Gold Medal Times feature, this will give you % GMTs for water results and show you crew GMTs for their GPS data.
To create a favourite crew click on the star which is next to the crew. Select this and the favourite will be made.
You can only delete favourites you have made. You cannot delete favourites made by other coaches in your club. To delete a favourite deselect the star
You can select your favourite crews by filters on the left-hand side menu.
Recent Crews filter
You can select recent crews by selecting the Recent in the same filter as above, this will open a list of crews that have been made recently
In the filter area described above to the left, you will find a list of athletes that are involved in the session. You will also have the ability to filter by Squad they belong to or their position in the boat.
Adding Athletes to Crews
There are two ways to add athletes to crews. You can drag and drop athletes into the seat or you can type the athletes name into the seat.
Drag and drop
Once you have added a boat into the Crew Area, you can start dragging and dropping athletes from the Athlete filter area to the left into seats in the boat. Once you’ve started adding athletes they will become transparent in the Athlete Area so you know they have been added.
Type athlete name
Once you have added a boat into the Crew Area, you can start typing the athletes name into the seat and you’ll be able to select the athlete you want. Once you’ve started adding athletes they will become transparent in the Athlete Area so you know they have been added.
The assign equipment button below each crew allows you to allocate Equipment from your Equipment list and notify athletes which equipment they are supposed to use for that particular session. Once assigned, the pieces of equipment in question will not be available to other crews.
When you are finished you can notify your athletes by pressing the Publish Crews button at the top of the session screen. This will send an email and notification to the athletes that crews have been made.
