Why is this useful?
Mass functions on the manage athletes page will save trainers hours of time going to each individual profile to perform these functions. The mass functions include some of the most used and valued functions in TRAQ, such as programming, filling inputs and assessments, and generating EDGE Reports.
There are eight actions that can be done from the Manage Athletes tab on large amounts of athletes. They can all be accessed from the Choose an Action drop down box on the Manage Athletes tab.
Once you have chosen your athletes, you can select any of the following eight options:
Fill Data Input
This allows trainers to fill any Custom Data Inputs assigned to selected athletes. You can only fill out Data Inputs that the athletes have assigned, if the athlete is not assigned inputs that day, their name will be greyed out. You can see assigned selected athletes assigned Data Inputs by clicking on the drop down box. This is most useful when filling out Bullpen or Live AB inputs, or any input that a trainer would normally fill out where multiple athletes are involved. This is also very useful for trainers who write data down to enter it later as they can enter it all from this screen instead of going to each athlete's profile.
Fill Data Assessment
Much like the Fill Data Input, this function allows trainers to fill out assessments for all selected athletes at one time rather than going to each athlete's individual profile. This is especially useful when running multiple athletes through assessments or screenings at one time. This is also useful for transcribing collected data for trainers who like to write things down and enter them later rather than having their phones at practice.
The Mass Programming function allows trainers to program large groups of athletes at one time. You can see more about it in the Assigning Workouts and Templates section.
The Workouts View function allows you to see the workouts your selected athletes are doing today. You can also see future and past days' workouts and click on the athlete's name to go to their profile page. This is useful for checking what your selected athletes are working on. This is similar to the Athlete Programming widget on the Home Dashboard, but with only your selected athletes.
The Download CSV function allows you to export and download a csv file of any data that was entered into TRAQ via a Custom Data Input or Custom Assessment. Select your Custom Data Input or Custom Assessment using the drop down boxes and then set the date range from which you want to pull all data. You can either select Apply to all filtered athletes or Apply to selected athletes. Filtered athletes are all athletes that are displayed, you will see that number next to athletes. Selected refers only to the athletes whose names are selected. Note: When you open the CSV, you will need to separate the text to columns. Highlight Column A and click Text to Columns in the Data Tools section of Excel. Change the setting from Fixed width to Delimited and click Next. Check the Semicolon box and click Finish. This is very useful for analyzing data outside of TRAQ.
Mass Workout Delete
The Mass Workout Delete function allows trainers to delete assigned workouts for large groups of athletes at one time. Select the date range and the type of workouts to delete and click Next to delete all assigned workouts of that type. This is useful if you need to clear certain programs from multiple athlete's calendars.
The Archiving function allows trainers to both Archive and Unarchive selected athletes at once. The only other way to Archive or Unarchive an athlete is through the Edit screen on the athlete's profile page. This is useful as archived athletes are not counted as active athletes for TRAQ billing. If you have seasonal trainees, you can archive them when they are not training to avoid being charged for them. Archiving does not remove any data, just blocks trainer and athlete access.
Generate EDGE Reports
The Generate EDGE Reports function allows you to generate EDGE Reports for large amounts of athletes from one place instead of going to each individual profile. Select your athletes and the type of EDGE Report as well as the type of technology and the date range and then click ok. This is very useful for when a trainer or coach wants to provide more than one athlete with an EDGE report. For example, an MLB team could run MLB In-Season Reports for their whole team in seconds. A college team could upload their TrackMan file and then generate both Driveline Hitting and Pitching Snapshots for everyone who played to provide their athletes with game breakdowns. A facility could have 10 athletes throw bullpens and then upload Pitch Recommendations to all 10 athletes.
If you have any actions you think should be added to this screen, let the TRAQ team know!
