ParticipantReport this issue to FFA Support on 02 8880 7983

FFA support will be able to assist with placing a registration

During the registration process for a participant some may experience a ResultsVault error after clicking "Select" on the price breakdown page or in some cases in other sections of the registration process. There is no set way on how to avoid this, it appears to occur randomly for some participants. 

All Details Report and Financial Report - generating report is taking a longer time than expectedAdministratorNo workaround at this point. Try narrowing the dates.Under Investigation02/03

Admin system is taking an unusual amount of time to generate All Details Report at all organisation levels.

Sibling Discount - registrants receiving discount that is not applicable to themAdministrator + ParticipantClub administrators can deactivate sibling discount and create a coupon system for sibling registrations Under Investigation02/03108552
Participants that are having their registrations declined/cancelled due to incorrect product selection or not putting in the AKV code during MSU process, then re-registering at the same club are having a sibling discount incorrectly applied to their invoice thinking the exact same participant is actually another sibling of the same family.
Incorrect Roles in ID Cards - ID cards generated are giving incorrect roles for non-playersAdministratorNo workaround at this pointNext Release
Club admins that generate ID cards for a particular team are reporting that coaches/volunteers are being represented as a player even though their role is set as volunteer/coach. 
Active Registrants & Wait-List - active club registrants are able to register at another club if particular product is full with wait-list enabled Administrator + Participant Participant will have to de-register from Club A or Club B will have to decline their registration as you can only have one active registrationUnder Investigation02/03107401
Participants that have been made active at a club already are able to register at another club if the club's product they are registering to is full and has the wait-list function enabled. The club with the wait-list then changes the participant's status to 'Awaiting Payment' but will not be able to make them active due to the concurrency rule.
Registration Process goes back to Address/School Invalid - participants are prompted to re-enter their address/schoolParticipantParticipants have to manually enter in their address/school without pre-fillIn Development16/03107997During the registration process for a participant, after entering all details in the Participant Details stage then progressing past the Photo Upload stage participants are prompted to re-enter their address and school even though they are already entered in.

Teams Squad Maintenance incorrect participant status - decline registrations are overriding active registrations in situations where the participant has a duplicate registration and decline was the last action taken on the registration, despite the participant carrying an active registration

AdministratorNo workaround. However in extreme desperate circumstances de-register the participant and re-register on the SAME FFA number.

*For duplicate registrations that come through, decline the first registration and approve the second registration (the last action taken on the registration is the status that is carried into teams)
In Development16/03105543When a club admin is allocating a participant to one of their teams within team management/squad maintenance, participants that have duplicate registrations and the first registration is made active and the second registration is declined, the participant saves however appears in red - blocking the team from being made official. Note the participant still as should on the team ID cards and in reporting.

Teams Squad Maintenance unable to allocate participant as both player and non player in a team - participants player allocations are being eliminated when saved/allocated as a non-player, visa versa.

No workaround. It's recommended that the club admin priotises saving the participant as a player over non-player, in the situation the participant has a dual role in the same team.In Development

111543When a club admin is allocating a participant into a team as a non-player that is already allocated as a player. It's removing the participants allocation as a player. Visa Versa for both ways - in summary meaning a participant can only be allocated as one role whether that be as a player OR a non-player
