As you’re well aware, AllPlayers.com is developed on the Drupal framework – in fact we won the Drupal Blue Drop Award for Best Social Networking Site! We’re very proud of our development strategy and we’re home base to many of the top Drupal developers in the world, a fact that we like to boast about as often as we can.
As part of our commitment to the open-source development community, we continuously give back by contributing code to the Drupal development world with the intention of helping Drupal developers better manage their production.
In this video watch one of our super devs Travis Tidwell deliver a case study on how AllPlayers.com utilizes the Drupal framework.
AllPlayers.com Groups Below or subgroups
One of the very distinct advantages of AllPlayers.com is the ability to build an organization hierarchy of groups. Called “groups below” in AllPlayers.com, subgroups help extend your organization options and give you better management over your entire organization.
Here are a few examples of how to manage multi-level organizations:
- SPORTS LEAGUES can build subgroups for seasons, divisions, tournaments and teams
- SCHOOLS can create subgroups for classes, grades, extracurricular activities and clubs
- CAMPS can build subgroups for individual camp sessions, activities and age groups
- EVENTS can build subgroups for attendees, volunteers, committees, and participants
- NON-PROFITS can build subgroups for events, programs, board members, donors/supporters
By using “groups below” or sub groups, managing calendars and schedules, registration and communication across all levels of participants is incredibly simple. The group administrator sees all subgroup calendars in an aggregated view for easy schedule management, and communicate and broadcasts can be sent to specific groups or all groups below.
By utilizing the organizational feature of “groups below” leagues, tournaments, clinics, camps, charities, special events, schools, PTO’s, and even families have a micro-view and control of all participant levels.
This has nothing to do with Dolly, unless you’re creating a group page for her fan club, in that case send it to us so we can see it.
Cloning a group is the easiest way to create multiple groups at one time, which would be the best way to handle creating groups for large organizations or leagues. Unless you’re the untrusting type who believes that unless you do it with your own hands it isn’t getting done properly. In which case, repetition is probably calming for you and we’re happy to provide that for you.
For leagues, organizations, associations and clubs there are frequently subgroups to each main group. For example:
- City Baseball/Softball League
- Boys Tee-ball
- Boys Baseball >> Select Teams
- Boys Baseball >> Select Teams >> Age Groups
- Boys Baseball >> Select Teams >> 14 U, 11U, 10U, 8U, etc….
- Boys Baseball >> Recreational League
- Boys Baseball >> Recreational League >> Age Groups, etc…
- Girls Tee-ball
- Girls Softball >>Select Teams
- Girls Softball >> Select Teams >>Age Groups
- There is no end to the Internet, so there is no end to how many subgroups I can give examples for
- Therefore there is no limit to how many subgroups you can have.

When members view group calendar, events are shown based on the time zone you have set for your account. However, if you are not logged in (Public view), calendar events show in the default Central Time.
As a group administrator, you can customize a group’s public view of calendar events to any time zone. Only admin roles are able to change a group calendar time zone.
