I have one more feature to add to the Jobs module before I consider it complete. I have a request to be able to send out Reminder Notifications on a per swim meet basis which should be pretty straight forward to implement and I hope to have it done in the next day or two.
Once that is complete, I need to decide what to do next. I have a couple of choices.
- I’ve had a couple requests to be able to import a roster into wp-SwimTeam. I don’t think this will be too difficult technically but it does require a couple decisions. Since swimmers in wp-SwimTeam are connected to parent or guardian users, what WordPress userid would the imported swimmers be connected to? The obvious choice is the Admin user or user running the import. Swimmers could then be updated at a later time to connect them to the appropriate WordPress user if/when it exists.
- Import results. This has long been on my to-do list because the MacDolphins need it. I’ve been working on processing results off an on as a side project (see Flip-Turn) with the intent to fold that work into wp-SwimTeam when it is functioning and useful. I already have a lot the functionality working and the GUI will look familiar to wp-SwimTeam users but I have yet to tackle relays and really push the robustness of the SDIF parsing.
- Hy-tek/SDIF compatibility. This is also something I need for the upcoming season. Anyone who has read much of this blog knows that I am not a big fan of Hy-tek and their goofy checksum and weak support of SDIF. Since it isn’t likely to change and lots of teams use Hy-tek, we need to resolve the data exchange problem. This issue may be the highest priority for me personally and I’ve debated whether to build some functionality into wp-SwimTeam to try and resolve sharing data with Hy-tek teams.
Comments and suggestions are welcome. I try to incorporate suggestions quickly if I can.
