We have seen a lot of confusion surrounding the two apps and how to navigate between the two.
First off, why are we doing this?
The way our original GC app was built (in 2009), architecturally it prevented us from being able to build out the features we'd always envision GameChanger having--live video streaming, multi-sport platform, player profiles, and all inclusive team management features-- all in one app. So we had to make the tough decision to build out a completely new app (GC Team Manager) that took all the good stuff from the older GC app and placed it into a modern, agile, feature heavy app. We will only be building out features on the new GC Team Manager app. Down the road, we will be sunsetting the older app and moving everyone over to the new app (Timeframe TBD).
How it works
The apps do not sync with each other. If you use the new GameChanger Team Manager app for your season, that info will not sync to the old app. And if you use the older app, that info will not sync up with the new app. So all fans, parents, family, etc. must be on the same app as the coaches. That is where they will see the info--they cannot be on different apps.
Importing Teams over from older GC to GC Team Manager
Now, although the two apps do not sync with each other, we do allow coaches to import teams over from the older app into the newer GC Team Manager app. Just install the Team Manager app and create an account with the same email you used for the older app. The app will then ask you if you want to import your teams over into the new app. This is a one time import. So if you import your teams over into the new app and then create new teams and score games into the old app, you won't be able to import that new content you created into GC Team Manager. If for some reason you did this, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can manually import those teams/games over for you.
What about a website?
The new GC Team Manager app also does not sync with the gc.com website. So any info input into the app won't show up on that old website and any info put into the old website won't show up on the app. However, we are building out a new website that corresponds with the new GC Team Manager app. It can be found here: web.gc.com . This website is currently in beta, and only available for Team Staff. However, we have a full team dedicated towards building it out and are working hard on adding new features every single day.
We know this process has been confusing, so please reply below with any questions you may have.
