Each sport maintains their own positions in ARMS to associate with prospects and organize their data. Positions can also be used for events such as Jumps, Sprints, Distance or Swim vs. Dive. These positions can also be included on your Recruiting Questionnaire.
Important: Many times positions are created before you even use ARMS. If you had any previous provider information imported see below for information on managing existing positions.
From the Administration module:
Click on the page for Sport and select your sport
Click on the tab for Positions
Click Add Position in the top, right corner
Enter the position Name (this displays on the questionnaire) and the Code (this displays in ARMS and is 4 characters long)
When ARMS imports recruit data, the positions provided may not match up with the pre-defined positions in the positions list. ARMS will automatically add the prospect's position to match what is provided in the import. If no matching position exists, a new one will be created and given a code such as P001. When you see this, you will want to "cleanup" your positions.
