VRA Club platform - Getting started with your VRA-account


VRA is committed to create a cricket club that is based on traditional values and modern principles. The club has therefor created a common club platform, to make organizing and working together within the club much easier. The e-mail account that you have been given is meant to be used for everything you do in and around the club. This includes being a volunteer in one of the many committees or contributing in another way as a member or as an affiliate of the club.

First start of your account

The VRA platform can be accessed with every modern browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari). Make sure that your operating system and applications are always on the latest software level.

For the most used services, unique VRA urls have been created for quick access:

Check your profile settings

When you logon to your account for the first time, you are encouraged to complete your profile settings. By doing this, you will be making it easier for others to find you, based on the information you provide. As a minimum, provide a suitable picture.

Where to find the club information

The VRA committees and teams organize their information using Team Drives, Calendars, Hangout (chat and video conferencing). Please find your way around and ask your committee chairman/woman or captain if you are missing something.

Organize your Inbox

Make good use of the multiple Inbox settings to keep your information at your fingertips. There are clever ways of filtering messages, labeling and many other sophisticated ways of keeping you organized. Explore and bring your VRA Inbox to the Next Level.

Using your account as a delegate for other accounts

Functional accounts are accounts that are not personal. Examples are: voorzitter@vra.nl or bar@vra.nl. These accounts make it possible to maintain the same account as a club for the same function.

If you have been given delegation for a functional account, you will be able to access the mail inbox for that account by switching account.

Switching accounts

When you logon to your account, using a supported browser, you will see an icon with your profile picture in the upper right hand corner. When you click on it, you can see the other accounts that are accessible to you.

What your delegate can do

Delegates can do things like:

  • Send or reply to emails that were sent to you. When they send a message, their email address will show. For example, the sender will show as "sent by johnsmith@vra.nl."
  • Read messages sent to you
  • Delete messages sent to you
  • View and add to your contacts

Delegates can not do things like:

  • Chat with anyone for you
  • Change your Gmail password

Using the VRA platform on your mobile phone

As the club platform is built on Google G-Suite, you can use your VRA-account not only on your laptop, but on your mobile devices too. Having your account available will enable you to read your email, manage your VRA calendars, edit your notes and many more. Instructions on getting started on your mobile.
