Details Tab

The details tab displays all the details and entry fields that were entered when creating the course and that can be edited by scrolling to the bottom of the page and selecting edit. Once you had edited the required details, click save.

Managers Tab

Here is where you can add other users as course managers so they can have access for administration of the course. See our Course Managers guide for more details on the Managers tab.

Participants Tab

The Participant tab is displayed on all courses regardless of the selected Application type. The participant tab displays the list of all participants, i.e. list of all course applicants with the indication of their application status.

The list of participants shows their COMET ID, name, date of birth, status (of application), when the status was loaded, and attended.

See our Participants guide for more information on the participants tab.

Items Tab

The Items Tab is where you will need to create the item for a user to purchase to register to the course. For example, participants may need to pay for memberships, merchandise, seminar payment, player registration payment, coach contract payment or seminar application.

The items tab will only show if Pay after approval, Just Pay, or Pay Later is selected as the Application Type

To create a course Item:

  • Select the Items Tab
  • Click + New Item. This will open a pop-up for you to fill in item details
    • Item Icon - upload a photo of your product

    • Active switch-on button - items that are selected as inactive are not displayed to the applicant on the course and cannot be purchased

    • Name

    • Item Type:

      • Participation Confirmation → is a default item type that needs to be selected to trigger the participants' status change (confirmation) on courses that have the application type set to Pay after approval, Just Pay, or Pay Later.

      • Additional Payment → is an optional item type that can be used for any additional payment connected with the course (e.g. application administration fee or payment installment). Please take into account that the payment of the Item with the Additional Payment Item Type does not have an effect on the participant status change on the course, i.e. it is used for additional or non-obligatory payments.

    • Price

    • Survey Template - A survey template, created under Application Surveys, will need to be created before adding this to the item. See Survey Template Guide, and read below for where to create application surveys for courses

  • Once you have filled in the details, select save.

Once the item is saved it will appear on the Course profile (available for purchase to course applicants on the Course menu) under the Pricing and products section.

Assessments Tab

More information on assessments can be found in our Creating an Assessment guide.

Survey Tab

Surveys can be added when initially creating the course depending on the application type selected. The only time a survey template cannot be added on creation is when 'Just Pay' is selected.

Questions can be added under the survey tab if a survey is not added when creating the course, or when the item is created.

Application Surveys can be created by selecting Application Surveys under Administration. The process to create these is the same as creating surveys for store items or registration items, but for courses, these survey templated are created under Application Surveys. See our Survey Template Guide for a step-by-step process on how to create these.

Once you have set-up all the information for the course, you can create a direct link to share with your coaches and referees. Select Copy application link and share this.

  • Navigate to the course menu by selecting Courses
  • Here you can search for Active courses, or use the All tab to search for both active and inactive courses
