FastRecruit premium subscribers have access to the Home tab. The home page helps coaches quickly view upcoming games and notes taken on a specific list of recruits they are interested in.
To start, select the Home tab from the top of the screen. By default, all recruits will be displayed. To view a list of recruits you have created, select the drop-down. In the example below, I've selected the list, 'JF Recruits'.If no lists are available, please reference this guide on how to create lists.
FastRecruit Connect subscribers get the added bonus of the 'Connect' features which bring your recruit's social media interactions right into FastRecruit. The 'FastConnect' tab shows a combined social media feed of all the recruits in the selected recruit list. The content in the feed is based on the Twitter profiles, Twitter searches, and Instagram profiles you have saved to the recruit.
The posts seen in the FastConnect feed are broken down into 3 categories and are color-coded accordingly:
1. Direct Posts from Recruit (BLUE) - Twitter or Instagram posts from any profiles linked to the recruit (recruit, parent, coach, etc.).
2. Shared by Recruit (YELLOW) - posts on Twitter that are retweeted or liked by any twitter profile linked to the recruit. Also, posts on Instagram that have been liked by any profile linked to the recruit.
3. Talk About the Recruit (WHITE) - posts on Twitter that match any saved Twitter searches you have linked to the recruit or twitter posts that mention a twitter handle linked to the recruit.
To filter by post types check/uncheck the 3 boxes seen below. To quick search for keywords, use the 'Search' box.
To filter by recruits, check/uncheck the box next to the recruit's name located in the left-hand blue pane. Click 'Select None' to quickly uncheck all recruits.
To like, retweet, comment, or favorite a post, select a specific post from FastConnect feed then you will be redirected to twitter.com or instagram.com.
