Kicksite Programs Uplift | February 2024

February 26, 2024

The Kicksite team is excited to release our latest software uplift: Programs. This is far more than just a visual upgrade, though. With this update, we’ve created a new Programs hub within the software that gives you a more streamlined and consolidated way to view and manage ranks and promotions for all of your programs. Within Programs there are three key pages:

Ranks Overview: A holistic view of your school’s Program layout

Eligible to Promote: An actionable list of students who are ready to rank up

Promotions: A snapshot of your students’ full promotion history

Here are some top-level highlights of what you can look forward to with this change.


Programs now has its own dedicated section within the left sidebar navigation of your Kicksite software. In the Programs navigation dropdown you’ll find direct links to your school’s Ranks Overview, Eligible to Promote, and Promotions. As always, you can also use the Quick Links tool to search for these respective pages and access them there.

One of the main goals of this uplift was to reduce the amount of clicking around and having to navigate separate pages in order to manage your students’ ranks. Now, within Programs, you’ll have top menu tabs for Ranks Overview, Eligible to Promote, and Promotions, so you can easily jump between these related sections.

As you dive further into each tab, you’ll notice other improvements related to navigation and management. Within Ranks Overview, you can quickly expand or collapse program sections to customize your view of ranks. You also have select Program editing capabilities from this screen, including the ability to add or remove connected memberships, and adjust attendance minimums or attendance limits.

On the Eligible to Promote tab, you once again have expandable/collapsible program sections with lists of all students that have met promotion criteria. You can quickly see their current rank, last promotion date, number of days at rank, and number of classes at rank. The program titles are also clickable, and will navigate you to that program’s respective Programs Settings page.

Meanwhile, under Promotions, you can view the full Promotion History for your students. To make this even easier to manage and customize your view, we have incorporated helpful filters. You can filter the list of past promotions by student status (active, inactive, frozen), program, and even set start and end dates to view past promotions within a specific timeframe.

Finally, what’s a ranks and promotions section without the ability to promote students? It doesn’t get much easier than this: you can promote students with a single click. When you hit the up arrow icon that corresponds with a student, they’ll be instantly promoted to the next rank. Accidentally promote someone when you weren’t quite ready to? No worries! An ‘Undo’ button will appear upon promoting a student, just in case you need to revert them to their current rank. The Undo button will stay visible until you refresh or navigate away from this page.
