Zuluru in Madison

Posted by Administrator on Wed, Nov 05 2014 00:59:00

Zuluru welcomes West Side Ultimate in Madison, WI! Came across WSU while Googling ourselves, they got Zuluru up and running with no questions. Best of luck to this new league spreading the reach of our favourite sport.

If you find others using Zuluru that we don't know about, drop us a line! We love to get feedback from as many sources as possible on what we can do to improve the product.

Version 1.7.5

Posted by Administrator on Wed, Apr 23 2014 00:14:00

A revision update like 1.7.4 to 1.7.5 normally doesn't get an announcement, but the changes in this are pretty substantial. Not quite substantial enough to warrant going to version 1.8, but enough to comment on!

The focus of 1.7.5 has been the registration system, with the following changes made:

  • Streamlined checkout page.
  • Added new payment statuses (deposit, partial, reserved).
  • Added ability to issue full and partial refunds and credits, transfer payments from one registration to another, and use credits to pay for other registrations.
  • Added multiple price points for events, each with their own rules, open and close dates.
  • Registrants can now edit their questionnaire answers and payment choices (if applicable) before payment is made.
  • Added option to allow unpaid registrations to be reserved for a per-event configurable time.
  • Added features to automate management of waiting lists.

Along the way, there have also been a number of non-registration changes:

  • Playoff schedule editing now allows you to set game names and adjust matchups if required.
  • Added bulk user import function.
  • Custom headers on some emails should improve delivery rates.
  • The team_count rule can now handle date ranges like membership_type, and include_subs like league_team_count.
  • Added a default privacy policy and default membership letter.
  • Fixed location of map marker graphics.
  • Added VCF option for importing contact information into compatible apps.
  • Added preview of spirit questionnaires, legend of spirit symbols, and a new questionnaire.

A pretty major piece of work, and one which we expect will make registration and administration that much easier for everyone. Coming up: scheduling improvements, internationalization, and more!

Zuluru in Hamilton

Posted by Administrator on Wed, Mar 12 2014 07:21:00

We are pleased to announce that the Hamilton Ultimate Club will be adopting Zuluru for running their registration and leagues. HUC board members were exposed to Zuluru through the Toronto Ultimate Club and the World Under 23 Ultimate Championships 2013, and are excited to join up. Hamilton players can also look forward to a revamped web site. Welcome, HUCers!

Zuluru is going international!

After being exposed to Zuluru at the U23 tournament this past summer, Ultimate Mexico has chosen Zuluru to handle their tournament scheduling needs. The contract calls for Ultimate Mexico and Trawna to work together to translate Zuluru into Spanish, which will in turn open the door to translations to other languages. ¡Bienvenido, México!

Zuluru in Ottawa

Posted by Administrator on Fri, Jan 10 2014 02:47:00

We are pleased to announce today that the Ottawa Carleton Ultimate Association (OCUA) will be moving their league management from Leaguerunner to Zuluru.

Dave O'Neill, the primary author of Leaguerunner and a stalwart OCUA volunteer for many years, has reached a point where he no longer feels able to provide the level of effort that continuing the Leaguerunner project would demand, so OCUA looked for other options. Zuluru was a natural fit, as it grew out of Leaguerunner and will present a familiar interface to players and admins alike.

We're sure that OCUA members will enjoy Zuluru features like attendance tracking, playoff scheduling, streamlined roster management and online payment, and trust that the admins will also appreciate the additions and enhancements that have been made on their side. This is also an exciting announcement for other Zuluru users, as this partnership will surely drive additional new features, usability enhancements, etc. to the general benefit of all users.
