The RegattaCentral Staff Portal is a great tool for Regattas seeking a more integrated, efficient approach to regatta operations. With the ability to scale according to services utilized within the RegattaCentral system the Staff Portal has the ability to be a central resource of operations for regatta staff and volunteers. The Staff Portal can be divided into two categories - the "Core Functions" which are tied to many of the basic services used by regattas in RegattaCentral, and "Additional Features" which are associated with stations that are tied with specialized features that regattas can take advantage of with the RegattaCentral services. The More information about Staff Portal features below:
The Staff Portal has the ability to control various ranges of access and permissions granted to staff and volunteers so that each user has access to everything they need for their duties, and nothing they don't. The roles range from Administrator - giving access to staff needing full access to each station, to station restricted access for volunteers. For stations like Registration, Weigh-In, and Awards the stations will also keep a record of any user that accesses an entry or file and the action that user performed. The access roles and times periods can be designated in the Volunteer Coordinator station within the Staff Portal.
