Important Website Tools

Hello HEAT,

We have a couple website-related items to call your attention to.

The navigation bar near the top of the homepage now includes a tab for Members.  Once you’re signed in, you can access this menu item, which holds links for some of the most commonly used areas on the website.  Think of it as a list of short-cuts to important info.  When you’re on a mobile device, the nav bar with these Member short-cuts is available on the homepage by tapping the “hamburger” menu in the upper right corner.  (Remember that a lot more info can be found by signing in to your Back Office menu> Team Resources.)

Did you know that you can subscribe to our Team Events calendar and add it to your own calendar agent, such as Google (or Outlook)?  This will pull all of the team’s meets and events into your own calendar.  If this sounds useful to you, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to Members> Team Events (or Back Office> Events & Competition> Team Events).
  2. Click the yellow Subscribe button near the top of the page. 
  3. Click the gray Copy Link button on the far-right side of the box that pops up.  (This copies the link to your clipboard so you can paste the URL into your calendar agent.) 
  4. For Google calendar:
    1. On the left, above “My Calendars,” click the button to Add Calendar> from URL.
    2. In the space for the URL, paste the link copied from step 3.
    3. Click the Add Calendar button.  The calendar will appear on the left side under “Other Calendars.” 
    4. It may have a long name (Hillsboro Swim Team Team Events Calendar), but you can adjust the calendar’s name and color code as you wish.  Click the button for options to the right of the calendar name and choose Settings.

I hope these website tools are useful for you.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
