Team Privacy

When managing Team Privacy, there are three access settings for teams. Team Captians can adjust these settings by clicking the pencil next to your team name at the top of the page. When the Captain sets up the team there are 3 access levels:

  • Public teams can be seen and joined by anyone registering as an adult or youth.
  • By Invitation Only means that when you email an invitation that link will work for one individual.
  • Anyone with the Link means just that – anyone with your link can join your team.

Inviting Team Members

Inviting team members to the team is simple. Review privacy setting above before announcing the invitation.

  • For Public team, just inform friends to select the team name from the drop down when they register for the event.
  • For Non Public team, the Captain will need to login to team management page to send an invitation. From the team page, Captain can enter a list of comma-separated email addresses and a short message before sending the invitation to join. Keep in mind, only the email recipient can use the invitation to register, the invitation cannot be forwarded.
  • For Anyone with Link team, a team link is also available which can be copied to share in a email from the Captain’s personal email account.

Adding Members to Team Who Have Already Registered

Adding and moving team members to the team is easy. Review privacy setting above before extending the invitation.

  • For Public team, the new member needs to login to their eventdog.com registrant profile (see Manage My Registration instructions above) where they can join the team by self-editing their registrant profile.
  • For Non Public team, the Captain will need to login to team management page and send a new invitation to the exact email address the new member used in their initial race registration. The new member will then login to their registrant profile and once there they will see a pending team invite from the Captain. To join the team the new member must accept the invitation.
