Why are my time standards gone again?! 2/5
I have tried to like this new version of On Deck. It certainly looks prettier than On Deck Parent did and sometimes it makes better use of the screen. But other than that its all negatives. Its less intuitive, much harder to use and generally seems to fail at serving two masters (Coaches and Parents). But what really irks me are the time standards disappear with every new version and sometimes at other random times. I have to reset them over and over and over. If this weren't the ONLY app that lets me access my daughters swim team information I would have deleted it for good months ago. Seriously, get the time standards issue fixed - it worked in the previous version! I'm using 4.0.17 on an iPad2 now and its gotten worse - I can't even see any National time standards (like those from USA Swimming) - I can only see the ones my LSC set up. Useful...
New vs old 2/5
I'm writing this from a parent's perspective. I imagine a coach would have a different view. The new app looks much better than the old, and acts much more like a modern iOS app. Neither old nor new versions make finding things easy. There are a *lot* of features, and it usually takes me a while to find what I'm looking for. Combining parent & coach apps seemed like a reasonable idea, until I saw all of the coach features cluttering up the screen. One feature I used a lot is either missing in the new app, or else is well-hidden: keying in the heat and lane assignments for events. I'd much rather have that info on my phone than carry around a paper meet program. The new app is slower than the old. It seems to load every page on-the-fly from the cloud, which is sluggish. On the meet entries display, 3-digit event numbers are truncated, which is a pretty severe problem. Touch ID is buggy - it often requires password entry, which kind of misses the point of Touch ID. The app really needed a refresh, but this version is a swing and a miss.
Good attempt, but lots of work ahead 2/5
This version is has a nice look but has a lot of issues. Touch ID doesn't work much of the time, time standards previously selected (over and over again) get reset, non-intuitive maze to find simple things like upcoming meet entries for your children it teammates, the ability to see how close your children or teammates are from state times or other milestones...I find myself opening up the old version of the app and longing. Too bad the developers rolled this out before it was in better shape. I would pay for a better app...glad this wasn't much :-)
Touch-ID doesn't always work 3/5
While touch-ID works when entering password, after that, it should always remember it. This is the only app I know of that forgets the password in spite of having touch-ID enabled.
Please fix this functionality.
Fixed the crashes? NOT 2/5
The last update promised to fix crashes. Can't access meet results, cause it crashes EVERY time... be a great app if it actually worked.
By Mr. iPhone User
They are activly working on the app and resolving problems. I've had several problems that I reported get fixed. To the other reviewer, not sure how someone could come in and interface to the TeamUnify back-end. Maybe specific issues listed in the review or a report to support would help?
Can't open 1/5
Crashes. That's all this does. I haven't been able to take attendance in over a month now.
Crashes often and not responsive 3/5
The time standards were hard to get. The app crashes when looking a my kids best times. Trying to reload it now. Hope they update it soon to fix bugs.
Bring back the old app 1/5
With every update the app gets worse. It's basically useless now. Would be a good time for a competitor to come up with a new useful app for swim parents.
Please bring back the old version!!! 1/5
By The s1ammer
Very few of the Time Standards we use are available now. In addition, the ones that are available do not appear to be accurate in the "Best Times" mode. Ugh! Not helpful at all.
Old version was better 1/5
You don't list events fully, relays are not listed at all, if you try to browse stuff, app crashes. This app is only visually an upgrade, functionally it's a major downgrade. Bring the old app back.
Bug fixes don't fix bugs 1/5
This new version has set the the app back in time. Gender STILL displays incorrectly and no place to update information, despite latest fix update (boy in some fields, girl in others!). Was excited to get this but now that the last version is not supported, parents are struggling...
Please go back to the old version 1/5
By Helpless on deck!
This new version is simply horrible. It loses my login information often. Moreover the time standards I selected and saved are there one day and not the next. Please spend more time working out the bugs before you release a new version and stop supporting an excellent working app.
Overall pretty good but still some kinks to work out 4/5
The user interface is nicely organized. However, the "Best times" should be an icon that you can select to see which meet the "best time" was swum. The ABSOLUTE MOST annoying thing is that two parents cannot be logged in at the same time. My husband and I use the old app often and would like to be able to be remembered & logged in all the time.
Upcoming Meets 3/5
By analytical swim mom
Am I missing something or can you no longer see a list of all swimmers under the upcoming meet entries?
Awesome upgrade so far 5/5
The fact that OnDeck FINALLY SUPPORTS TouchID I would give this 5 *. So frustrating with the old app having to log in every time the phone turns on. That being said, the layout is a bit more organized and looks more like an iOS app compared to the old one. There is a little bit more startup setup but after doing it one time, it's smooth. Have to use this a bit more this weekend but so far I'm loving it (don't have much of a choice since the old one doesn't work anymore)
Disappointed with upgrade 1/5
I use to be able to open this app on my iPod (iOS 9.3.5) but not anymore! Very disappointing!
Does not open on older iPads running iOS 9.3.5 1/5
Installed on iPhone 6 & works great. Installed on iPad running iOS 9.3.5 & does not open. Never gets into app. Just says loading profile. Epic fail not to be able run on older iOS.
Doesn't give the date of the best swim 4/5
I like the new version so far except that you now can't see the date of the swimmers best time under time standards.
More features but doesn't work 2/5
I can't select standard, I am stuck with only one standard. Not very useful.
Bad change in attendance 1/5
So the attendance has changed again and now all swimmers are marked as out! Sounds small but having to click 5 times to to say here is not time efficient in any way. Change them back to here!
Difficult to use 1/5
The new version is difficult to use and find the information you are looking for. The old version was not pretty, however you could find what you were looking for in a click or two. The new version takes 5 to eight clicks and still is not very clear. I am now using paper and a clipboard to manage my team like I used to because it is much faster and easier than this version on ondeck. Note to the developers - please bring back the old version. It was simple and quick to find what I needed on the pool deck, this is unusable and unintuitive.
Touch ID wrong implementation 1/5
Allow login with Touch ID only, once enabled, why still requiring password ? Defeats the purpose of having simplified fast login offered by Touch ID. In this version you need to re-enter the password and then use Touch ID.
What did you do? 1/5
I don't know what they did to this app. The older version works great on my older devices, unfortunately with this new version I'm lucky if I can even get it to load. The other day it was "authenticating" for 20 minutes before I finally gave up on it. If you have the older version DO NOT UPDATE. Very disappointing. I used to use it for attendance, but now have to use a teaching app or bring an older device with me to work because I can't trust this app to work on a daily basis.
Bring back old version 1/5
Attendance application is terrible. Older version was much better.
Please keep old one. 1/5
Too cumbersome. To much time up loading everything. Will not use new one.
Don't Do It!!!! 1/5
Now I have only used it for a few minutes and it is horrible. I am a parent who using the OnDeck Parent app to compare my swimmers times from meet to meet and to compare to standards. This version makes it so difficult. Gone is the graph and it is almost impossible to select standards from multiple regions because when you switch regions it doesn't save the standards you selected.
Don't "Upgrade" to OnDeck 4 1/5
OnDeck 4 appears to require a full time data connection for any and all functionality, so there is no data cached on your device. This version of OnDeck is worthless if you are in a location without cellular or WiFi service.
Stay on or rollback to OnDeck 3.
Love On Deck 4/5
I love On Deck. It's a great organizational tool. Love it for taking attendance, accessing meet entry checks and best times best times, etc. wonderful all around app.
Great App 5/5
What an ease to use
Needs Updated 2/5
Not a bad app but has not been updated in awhile. I sent in feedback to have the pace calculator fixed as it is no longer working. Had a response that they were working on it in a new app. This was over a year ago. With coaches needing to be able to access information on the fly it would make sense to put more time and effort into this application.
It's ok 3/5
Fix the split calculator! 4/5
Please fix the split calculator.
I am liking this more and more 5/5
This app has helped our team keep attendance, move kids in and out of the water and made our admin staff happy.
Splits math does not work 4/5
This would be an incredible app if only the splits math worked! I cannot see the last part of the times that I input, so I cannot correctly calculate an athlete's splits for race strategy. I've talked to a couple of other coaches who have the same issue.
Split math not working 3/5
This is a great app to look stuff up on the go for my swimmers but the split math page isn't working for me. Not sure if it's the iOS or if there is a bug in my phone.
OnDeck has a ton of accessories and tools to use. It's easy to login to and setup!
Great app 4/5
Helps manage the whole team.
Ok but could be great 3/5
Lots of snafus but could be really great. To many issues with the latest iOS, and this happens every time there is an iOS update.
Easier way to track the team 5/5
By The onion knight
This app helps tremendously with daily attendance, the roster, and workouts. I highly recommend using it and it will make day to day coaching a lot easier.
Great on iPhone, nonfunctional on iPad 3/5
Works great on iPhone 6. Unable to sign in on iPad gen1 iOS 8.3.
Love it! 4/5
Use it daily!
Easy to Use!! 5/5
By Mama Albers
If I can use it-anyone can use it! Love that all coaches on deck have access to the same info instantaneously!
Great program. 5/5
Could be a little more user friendly but overall a great app!
Good App 4/5
Does a lot of what I need from an admin perspective. TU does a decent job listening to users for updates and upgrades. If you have an idea, relatively easy to submit on TeamUnify's site.
OnDeck is does not work with iOS 8.2 1/5
Can not access anything other than my start page with the new iOS update. Can't take attendance or check meet entries, can only see my front page.
Great help to Coaches and Club Admins 5/5
This onDeck app is a great help to coaches and club admins alike. Makes our work more efficient and is a great organizational and communication tool. Definitely recommend.
This is a good start 4/5
App is stable and does most of what I need.
Great app 5/5
By Swim official
Great app for the whole team. Love the email and text feature
Great App 5/5
Easy to use, easy to explain to even the biggest dinosaur on the team! Fast customer service and tech support, usually within minutes. Definitely recommend both the coach and parent versions.
