Android App Availability
The RodeoReady App for Android is currently in final development and testing. In the interim, as the Admin, you can add Android Users as Competitors within a Competition. This is the same process as manually adding Competitors to Events who are not App users. Once added to one event, these Competitors will be available to be added to other events in the Competition as well as other Competitions. When the Android App is available, you will be able to transfer control of their account to them, including all their Competition history.
Android Users Access to Competition Information
For android phone users, because they do not have access via the App to your organization’s information, we have set up a web page where this can be viewed (link to follow shortly). The page includes the Competition schedule along with details, events, draws, and results as well as instructions to the Android phone users on how to send your Organization Admin their Competition events entry requests. The instructions for these Android users can be seen [here] (link to follow shortly). Android users will be instructed to send an email to your Organization Admin with their Competition events entries information. Within our Competition User Guide, we have also included links to the instructions for Android phone users.
Adding Android Users and Their Events to a Competition
You will receive an email from the Android users with their Competition event details. Tap the Events icon then tap the event to which you want to add a new Android Competitor then tap the Competitors button. Your screen will display all current Competitors in the Event. Tap + Add Competitor. Any Competitors that have already been manually added to any other Events in this Competition will be available to add to this Event, or tap + Add Person to add someone new. If you are adding a new person, you can enter their name and email address, or add from the address book on your phone. Tap Add when fields are completed. Then tap OK to confirm.
Marking Android Users as Paid Entries
It is important to note that these manually added Android Users do not have access to the App and will be displayed along with any other manually added Competitors. They will not have the ability to pay for their Membership fees or Competition fees online. Your Organization will be responsible for collecting any fees owed. To manage Competitor fee payments, see the article: Competition: Reviewing Competitors.
Once a person has been added as a Competitor to one Event in the Competition, they are available to add to any other Events in this Competition and other Competitions within your Organization. Adding Competitors in this manner will also automatically calculate their fees owed. If you tap on the Competitors tab, you will see updated amounts owing and Events listed.
