At the core of the OnForm design, is the ability to model real-life coaching relationships. Through many years of experience, our approach was to ensure that both teams and individuals can be easily supported in our app.
When you create a new team in OnForm, you're creating a workspace and then adding team members to it. Those team members might be athletes, parents, coaches or assistant coaches. All text messages and videos are then part of the workspace. As players may come and go or coaches change, the workspace will remain constant, keeping your videos and messages all in one place.
Individuals work the same way, but instead of a "team name" it's simply the main individuals' name that is used for the workspace name. If you are a golf instructor and have a client, "Jane Smith", the workspace will be named "Jane Smith". This way, all communication of chat messages and videos are part of "Jane's" workspace.
We've learned that even though you might be working with an individual client, they often have multiple coaches interested in keeping tabs on the athlete, so even for individual workspaces we allow multiple support team members to join. In addition to the primary coach that is connected to the workspace, there might also be others, like a nutritionist, physiotherapist, mental coach or skills coach as well.
The model is very flexible and allows for both large teams with lots of players, assistant coaches and even parents as well as 1:1 relationships with a single coach-athlete.
