In a big step toward allowing you to build custom reports and statistical pages, you can now tag games, events, news, and seasons. Tagging allows you to add additional meaning to a game, event, news article, or season.
Previously for a game (we’ll use a game as the example, but tags are applied in the same way to events, seasons, and news articles as well) you could specify that it was a league game, set the game type, and check the tournament box. But that was about it. Now you can tag the game however you want and add all sorts of meaningful data to the game itself.
Checking the tournament box is boring.
Adding tags is exciting!
As you can see, you can add as many tags as you want to your game. Maybe you want to tag the game as a seven inning game or that wood bats were used or that it was part of a specific tournament or everyone wore their hats backwards or really whatever you want. It is completely up to you.
But why should I add tags?
Adding tags to a game will allow it to display on the schedule with tags.
It also allows visitors to your website to filter the schedule by a tag.
The Best is Yet to Come
The best part of tags isn’t available yet but is in the works. Once you have tagged your games and seasons you will be able to create custom statistical pages based on your tags. You’ll be able to have a page on your website that lists stats from seven inning games. Or a page that lists stats from the Memorial Day Tournament played at night. Or a page that lists state playoff stats vs. just playoff stats. Or a page that lists stats from games where your green uniforms were worn. Or whatever you dream up.
Hopefully you start adding tags to all of your games, events, news articles, and seasons to give them additional meaning. As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us by submitting a support ticket or leaving a comment below.
