FTIP#8 – GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION

GDPR (the General Data Protection Regulation) comes into force on May 25th 2018 – What is it ? and how important is it to sports clubs and organisations ?

A couple of links below give a “flavour” of what is likely to be a hot topic for the next 12 months.

Governing bodies are pretty quiet on GDPR at the moment – either super confident, slightly worried – or both !

FTIP#7 – ‘CLOUD’ COLLABORATION TOOLS

Nowadays every organisation “needs” spreadsheets, documents, emails etc. and there are two obvious big players in the market – Microsoft (Office 365) and Google (Docs and G-Suite).

Both are very good office toolsets but if you are on a budget (as most voluntary organisations are) Google Docs probably wins it by virtue of being free ! You get a lot for ‘nothing’ – but there is the odd rough edge (not many though to be fair). For £0 cost it has to be worth a look !

https://www.google.com/docs/about/

If you like it enough you can upgrade to the paid version for around £3 per month – which has 30GB of online storage space as well.

Having said that the free version should work fine for most small clubs/groups.

FTIP#6: POST IT NOTES ONLINE

If like a lot of people your admin life is driven by lists and “post it” notes (on hundreds of scraps of paper) stuck to the fridge – it’s worth looking at what the “digital world” has to offer to serve that purpose.

Two software apps that do a decent job – there are others too – are:

1) Windows sticky notes : a free Windows App.

2) Google Keep : again free, but a part of the Google Documents set of applications – a good free office solution.

Both should work on tablets, PCs and phones with suitable operating systems, allowing you to see notes wherever you are.
