Generate Schedule 

The Scheduling module will generate a schedule based on the parameters entered in this section. The system can automatically create a practice schedule for a given set of teams, a balanced "Round-Robin" type schedule - where each selected team plays each other a specified number of times, a "Best Fit" if there isn't sufficient time for full round robins, a tournament series where multiple games are played each day - or a Single-Elimination tournament - in which case, Tournament Brackets will be created and appear in each selected team's area. This service is designed for organizations that need to create/generate their own schedules. Organizations that receive their schedule from a third party or create their schedule offline should use either our Import or New Games tool to enter schedules into the site.

Let's get started...

First, on the initial page, you will have access to the Schedule Rules Control Panel. This view will allow you to Add a new Rule or change an existing rule. If there are no rules that have been created, the control panel will appear with only an "ADD RULE" button as shown below:

Otherwise, if rules have already been established and saved, the control panel will appear as a listing of these previously saved rules along with additional control options. See below:

Creating/Editing a Rule

If you have selected to "Add a New Rule" or to Edit and existing Rule, the resulting screen (shown below) will allow you to create or edit the parameters of the scheduling rule - Who, What, Where , When and How.






After you have set the parameters of the scheduling rule, you can choose to save the rule for future use or, optionally to generate the schedule when saving.

Don't be afraid to experiment with the scheduling system as it's easy to delete an entire generated series of events or overwrite them by subsequently regenerating the schedule.  You won't loose or overwrite schedule data entered elsewhere and the system won't overbook any of your facilities, regardless of how other events are generated.
