Revolutionary update - JoomSport 2.0 for WordPress released!

If you work in the software development area for more than 10 years product releases often become a routine. They bring some bug fixes, new features and give your customers more abilities or slightly better user experience. Only few releases bring the feeling that release point is completely changing everything around. Involved customers, the software development business, team members who were working hard to deliver great product - such releases bring the feeling that once product is published and delivered the world will never be the same again. June 2017 is indeed becoming a life changing month for us and a great hope for many of our customers. Why? The answer is simple:

JoomSport sport plugin for WordPress 2.0 version is now public
and
we will announce iOS release of our sport Mobile app in a couple of days!

Our team is indeed EXCITED about the new 2.0 release. So what is inside? Let's check together one by one.

Investing into customer base growth

We have revised the initial package of features for standard and professional editions and added a number of basic abilities to free standard edition. Things like Extra fields, Venue page, basic Box score statistic, basic Player events views, matches search, Team Squad, Clubs, Game Stages are in Standard edition now. However, Professional version still has lots of excellent perks to consider buying it. Visit our compare page to check the difference.

User experience and fast learning curve

Our first version of JoomSport was released in 2009 and since that time our product has become mature. We have realized that it is extremely important how customers use JoomSport and whether it's easy to learn how to use it. For the last two years we've been putting a lot of attention to these points and - again - 2.0 release brings a lot of improvements into user experience. Structured menu, changed interfaces, improved front pages look and feel, renamed options and messages - all these things were added to 2.0 release. Ability to manage Single and Team competitions simultaneously has become very simple. Moreover, now it is easy to start using JoomSport for the first time - the installation file on WordPress site contains basic demo data.

Redesigned statistics

One of the core things of our product is player and sport match statistics. In the new release we have greatly changed this area. Player statistics is now divided into blocks and it looks completely different.

In response to our customers' request we have changed the look of player events section on the match page. The change is applicable to player events with added minutes. Pro version users can enjoy greatly improved blocks' style and have more options compared to free standard edition. Another big feature is the ability to add box score records with many different options (divided into player roles, countable and based on other stat records, simplex or composite).

We hope such improvement will help with managing data in sports like basketball, volleyball, American football and many others.

Scheduler generator

We have developed new functionality allowing our Pro version customers to generate a scheduler for their season leagues within a couple of clicks. Please read more about how it works in a separate blog post.

Improved mobile views

Previously it was a part of our user experience section but since the changes are really significant we've put it into a separate blog post section. Standings layout has become really adaptive to the screen size and displays shortened column names in accordance with screen resolution. Calendar layout has become more flexible with the new ability to add extra fields columns. We have also delivered a number of bug fixes improving the look of pages on mobile devices.

Connected to feedback platform

After releasing our feedback portal a couple of months ago we have added a small green widget into all settings sections menus. This should help our customers with submitting new ideas and suggestions for our products. You are always very welcome to add you suggestions!

Download 2.0 standard edition on WordPress.org or download pro edition from your members area, leave your feedback and feel free to contact us if any questions.

Thank you for staying with us!
