Score Keeping Just Got Easier

There is now the ability to add "League Score Keepers" role.
You can enable this option by going to :

1. League Administration
2. Click the Players tab
3. Click on a person in the grid
4. On the bottom left hand side there will be a checkbox for League Score Keeper
5. Tick the checkbox and Save

(See screenshot below)

So now that you have assign one or more person to be a League Score Keeper, how do they enter scores?

Easy. When they login, th
ey will now see a new link on the left hand side bar, called "Score Keeping". When you click on this link it will look like the screenshot below.

You can see that there is a grid and a calendar. The grid is used to enter scores and the calendar is used to navigate the months, week, or day you wish to enter scores for. The grid will automatically show the games that correspond to whatever timeframe view the calendar is in.

To update a score, simply enter the scores in the grid and th
en click the save icon in the right most column of the grid.

You should see the calendar refresh for the game you updated the score for.

Oh and League Admins, The Schedulizer has this built in. Just look for the "Enter Scores" button and the functionality should be same above.
Check the screenshot below for the Schedulizer implementation.

Bulk Invite Players to Your Team

The easiest way to add players to your team, is to use the Bulk Invite Players option. To get to this screen :

1. Login
2. Goto your team page
3. Click Team Admin
4. Click Bulk Invite Players

It allows you to enter a bunch of emails separated by a comma, and select the role you want for those team members. It will then mass email the players as well as add them to your team.

The players will then have to update their information, so their first name doesn't stay as their email address.

In the example below, we are creating 2 players as a :

COACH : So they will show up under the Coach tab with their contact information

TEAM ADMIN : So they can administer the team page and send out emails, update news, etc

TEAM STATS KEEPER : So they can enter scores online and update player statistics

NOTE #1 : Don't worry if the email already exists in the system, it will simply add that player to the team and not create a new account.

NOTE #2 : If you assign the TEAM MEMBER role, you will still have to drag and drop those players to your current teams roster, so they will show up on the Team View tab.
