Don't make me enter my information more than once

As a parent, I only want to have to update my basic personal information once. When I start a registration and select who I am registering, it should present me with all of the information that already exists in my profile/my child's profile. I should have the opportunity to update the information at that point and not have to enter it anywhere again in the registration form. 

Additionally, if I am the emergency contact, parent, etc and you ask that question in a registration, I should be able to select myself from a drop down of profiles associated with my childs and not have to enter any additional information.

    Basically, I'd like for the registration to pull information from the users Sports Engine Account (or at least link to that information).   


    Some benefits here

    • I don't have to ask parents for the same information over and over again.  That just pisses people off.  It's already there in their Sports Engine Profile

    • Possible Data reduction.   I don't have to store redundant information.  Link to the account for lookup purposes.

    This exists now, right? It still shows as planned above.

    Hey Jason. This is something that is currently in development now. We have updated our registration to now be responsive using a consistent design which will now support improvements to the athlete, parent/guardian and emergency contact entry. I've attached a sample visualization to better illustrate this.

    Is there any update on this idea aside from Planned? I completely agree that some fields should be "auto-picked" based on the person selected as the person begin registered.

    One note on the "Who Are You Registering?" page. While Name is the most basic of info to get started, there are other fields that should be made available right on this page which would then be automatically filled in on subsequent pages/forms:

    • E-mail address
    • Birth Date (If a form prefers using Age, it would auto-calculate upon submission.)
    • Phone (Home/Cell)

    I know most of this info can be added to a Household profile later but many people who use the platform don't even know where to find this info. Collecting it during the first registration would be helpful by reducing the amount of data being typed repeatedly.


    Additionally, on the "Who Are Your Registering" page, is there any way we could post specific instructions (Example: "Select the player below. If this is a new player, select 'A New Person'.)
