Player Types are how we differentiate players so they can receive the proper benefits associate to either their membership or that of a public player.
There are two types of Player Types; Member & Visitor.
Member Player Types: These player types are made to be associate to Memberships (see our Creating Memberships & Services article). Member Player Types also have the options of Viewing the Tee Sheet when booking as well as having access to the Member Directory
Visitor Player Types: These player types are designed for public players.
Player Types have different permissions that can be stipulated when creating a new player type (these permissions can be changed at any time)
Colour: The colour for this type of player as it will appear on the tee sheet.
Online Booking (on/off): Whether or not this player can book online
Booking Range: How Many Days in Advance this player can book (each player type can have a different booking range)
Opening Time: Time at which an additional booking day is unlocked. (For example, a Booking Range of 1 day and an opening time of 06:00 PM means tomorrow is only available for booking after 06:00 PM today.)
Requires Affiliation (visitor type only): This player type needs to be assigned by the club for the player to access it (with this turned off any public player will have access to this player type)
Requires Credit Card (on/off): Turning this on will force the player type to add a valid credit card when making a booking (nothing will be charged)
Access to Tee Sheet (MEMBERS ONLY): This will allow Members to view the tee sheet up to 7 days in advance, as well as see when other members are playing (public player names will not be shown)
Access to Member Directory (MEMBERS ONLY): Members will have access to other Member information such as member number, name, phone number and scoring factor
Follow these steps to create a new Player Type:
Go to the Settings
Select the Player Types

Don't forget that once you have created a new player type you will need to create a price rule for them on your Price Sheets.
