About This Document
This document describes how to update a side’s profile on the Morris Federation’s Teamfinder service.
About Teamfinder Profiles
Teamfinder profiles were initially simple containing the name of the side and an address, together with links to a website and social media services, if provided. An example of the Adderbury Village Morris Men’s profile is shown below.
Developments to Teamfinder Profiles
It is now possible to provide more information in Teamfinder profiles. As the City Clickers Clog and Step Dance group profile shown in Figure 2 illustrates you can now (a) provide a brief summary about your side (shown underneath the dance style); add links to videos (hosted on YouTube or Vimeo) and (c) upload pictures.
Other developments, such as uploading other files (such as publicity materials, side history, etc.) are currently being tested.
It is also possible to change your password rather than sending an email so that a random password is generated for you. This will make it easier to create a memorable password which can be shared with other trused individuals in your side.
