iScoreCast App Deep Link

Post by dbpiv » Tue Apr 10, 2018 11:47 am

Afternoon everyone.

I am a longtime scorer who is really indifferent on forcing the iScoreCentral App (since we pay for the website yearly) but I do have a request. In yesteryears.... We could provide a link directly to the team (i.e. http://iscorecast.com/?c=MyYoungestSonsTeam) and that would take the parents to the live score page (after some redirects but you get the idea).

Is there a way to deep link into the iScoreCentral App so that our parents are not getting the request to buy a 3 month membership (see above, we already have a team website) and are taken to a screen similar to the old website (aka show them a list of games that "their" team has played, is playing and is scheduled to play (if available))?

Thus far the experience has been the following:
1. Send a link
2. Parents click on the link
3. Parents choose to view in app (let's just pretend they all have the iScoreCentral installed)
4. Parents get pop up asking them to pay $4.99 for three months (even though we have a team website)
5. Parents get iScoreCentral open and "their" team is nowhere to be found. (I love our parents I just cannot score, coach and answer tech questions simultaneously, (pick 2 :lol: )

Just need a deep link..... Please!

Thanks,

I would like to push for this request/change as well. Having a link that doesn't take you straight to the game is sort of pointless. Please expedite this change so that the link in the email takes you straight to the game in the iscorecentral app.

The emailed game links should be taking you straight to the game in iScore Central. This request was slightly different than that - this request was about taking you straight to a list of games for a team.

Do you have an emailed game link that is not taking you straight to the game? Which type of device (iOS or Android) and what steps are you taking to send the email that is not taking you straight to the game?

I'm sending the link out directly from the iScore Baseball app on my ipad. When clicking on the link on my iPhone, it takes me to the selection to watch on browser or watch on app - I select the watch on app. The app will open but just go to the search for games screen.

Sort of related - I'd actually like for just the Games to show up on the Team page in the iscorecentral app - instead of the full team website menu. I bought the team website to get the access for parents, but I don't want to use all the features of the site. I don't want stats to be shown on the iscore central app, but I can't password protect the stats without also affecting the games menu.

I think this feature request is developing into a bug report (the link not taking you directly to the game) and a feature request (a standard link that will take you to a list of the scored games (past, in progress and future) Definitely not the team website (our coach has me keep those under lock and key).

I have also provided the email to the support team.... Maybe a couple of examples will help them track down the bug.

@ support -> I do not have that same experience on my iPhone, when i tap on an email/texted game link, it asks me to open in app and then goes straight to the game in the central viewer app..

@ support -> a potential workaround could be re program so the mobile web page game indexes do not redirect until after you pick a game. So mobile app could view pages like http://iscorecast.com/?c=teamName then have the redirect to app kick in after user clicks on a game scoreboard to view.
