How do I add Coaches?

How To Add Coaches 

New Coach Platform (V3)

To add a coach, go to the Users index page and click Add Users. Fill in the User Details section with the user's first and last name and email address. Under Role, choose Coach. If this coach needs to have admin privileges, allowing them to view and edit all content in your organization (including payment and account information), check the box next to Assign Admin Privileges. Learn more about roles and permissions here.

Next, add the coach to any groups they need access to. Coaches assigned to a group will be able to see and edit all content, including programs, owned by the group. A coach can be added to as many groups as needed. To add a coach to a group, click the "+" next to the group type, select the groups you wish to add the coach to, and click Done.

Coaches may also be assigned a training program, like an athlete, which they can access in the Volt Training App. Under Assign Programs, select the program you wish to assign the coach to. Note that a coach may only be assigned to a program that is owned by a group they have been added to.

At the bottom, check the Send Invite Now box if you want the coach to receive an email invite to join Volt right away. If you don't check this box, you can optionally trigger this invite to be sent later. Finally, click Add User.

To add many coaches at once, click the Add Many Users tab. You can paste up to 200 email addresses of coaches you wish to invite, separated by commas. 


Removing Coaches

On the Users index page, click the Coaches subnav item on the left. You can manage any coaches in your organization on this page. To remove a coach, simply hover over the coach's name to reveal the ellipsis [...] menu and click Remove from Organization.

This action will remove the coach from all groups they are assigned to and will cause them to lose access to Volt.

Classic Volt Platform

Managing Coaches

In the Manage section of your platform, you can add coaches, edit their information, invite them to join your team, and remove them from a team.

Adding Coaches

To add coaches, you will go to Manage, then click on Coaches, then enter the first name, last name, and email for each coach you’d like to add. After you have added your coaches, you can invite them to join the platform by clicking Send All Pending Invitations. They will receive an invite email telling them to set up a password.

You will repeat this process for each team you’d like to add the coach to, using their same email address each time, but the coach will not need to set up a new password, they will just accept the invite by logging in from the email.

Removing Coaches

On the Coach page of the Manage section, you can manage any coaches that are tied to the team's Volt account. To remove a coach, simply click on the "X" to the far right of their name on the Manage, Coaches page.

All coaches on your team will have the same permissions and can manage athletes, teams, analytics, programs, etc. 

Compliance Mode

You can also choose to turn Compliance Mode ON or OFF from the Coach page of the Manage section. All coaches can manage compliance mode for themselves. Compliance Mode hides the Accountability section and hides the completed workouts from the Dashboard. This is best utilized by NCAA teams who are restricted by NCAA compliance rules.
