iDMe has now been turned on for your sport
At the request of the major NZ sports codes, we have now turned on the iDMe QR Code scanner module for every single sports organisations, club and school in New Zealand.
This lets sports administrators use a smartphone or iPad as a QR Code scanner that can instantly read in the contact details of anyone with an iDMe personal QR Codes on their phone (or printed on paper).
If you are a sports administrator, you can now get started with the QR Code scanner by going to your place on the Sporty platform and logging in. If you're unsure of the location (URL) for your organisation, please use this Sporty directory to find it.
IMPORTANT: The User Guide for sports organisers and schools has been updated. Please start by following the User Guide here.
If you completed the Scanner Module Request form from iDMe we apologise for the delay in individual replies to some enquiries. Our support team has been flooded by requests to turn on over one thousand organisations in the last 48 hours alone. Therefore, we have instead turned on every organisation in New Zealand, so that we are not the bottleneck in getting your sport going. This means that you may not receive a personal reply from our iDMe support team unless you need individual help.
Note for NZ Rugby clubs: NZR has provided its Contact Tracing Guidance for Rugby here.
The ability to save personal QR Codes for multiple family members or team mates has now been enabled. The ability for sports organisers to generate venue codes for your locations so people can use their iDMe to self check-in will become visible overnight tonight (14 May 2020). You can always ensure you have the latest version of iDMe on your phone by hard closing your phone's internet browser and the iDMe app (or simply restart your phone) and the latest version will load for you automatically.
Remember that anyone whose existing Sporty login has full database access for your organisation will also be able to launch the QR Code scanner, so please take this opportunity to review who has existing logins. You can turn people on and off through the Sporty User Access Control area as described in this support article.
Please also refer to the iDMe FAQs page and the iDMe Resources page for printable posters and iDMe banners for your website and Facebook to help inform your members and community. Remember that the starting point is to let people know to visit www.idme.co.nz to automatically get their own personal QR Code to it's easy for them to share their contact details with you touch-free.
Reminder: what's it all about?
New Zealand sports organisers are required to maintain a contact tracing log to identify individuals who may have come into contact with someone diagnosed with COVID-19. Sector advice from Sport NZ can be found here.
Traditional sign-in methods such as a manual guest book (paper/pen) or touchscreen iPad are not desirable since people don’t want to touch shared items or surfaces. Also, these sign-in methods can be cumbersome when a number of people may congregate within a relatively short space of time, since they can cause queues and delay access.
iDMe solves this. iDMe has been reviewed and is being recommended by the major sports codes. iDMe gives every player, parent and spectator one single universal app that works across all participating sports codes in New Zealand. So families don't need to use multiple different apps and systems. iDMe is provided by Sporty.co.nz free of charge for community sport.
iDMe lets sports organisers turn your own smartphone or tablet into a QR Code scanner so you can instantly scan people into your venue, courts, turf, fields or clubrooms.
iDMe lets people create their own personal QR Code on their phone with their contact information (name, address, email, phone number). They can save it to their phone home screen and only need to do this once. You can save multiple people such as family members and team mates to a single phone.
It's as simple as that.
Once saved, everyone's personal QR Code displays on their phone even without wifi or data. They can then show their personal QR Code to be signed in and provide their details for contact tracing, completely touch-free.
Or self check-in.
In instances where it is not practical to scan people's QR codes, there's a self check-in option that lets people enter a 5 character venue code for any location. So they can easily check-in instead.
If you are a sports organiser or administrator, please start with the User Guide here. If you are simply wanting personal QR Codes for yourself and your family or team mates, you can do this now at www.iDMe.co.nz
