Organizations – League Page Enhancements

League pages within organizations now get some of the same special treatment as team pages!  You can add your own content to a league page and now hide the standings from displaying on the league home page.  In addition, league pages now have a spiffy new header to match what team pages have.

For an organization, maintain league information by going to Teams > Leagues.

league_admin

League home pages can be displayed with custom content and standings.

league_home_standings

Or with custom content and without standings.

league_home_nostandings

And check out the new league header!

Organization and Leagues – Team Enhancements

We recently completed a few enhancements for teams within a league or organization that should help improve the look of your site.

Player pictures default to the team logo if there isn’t one.

Now when players in your league or organization don’t have individual photos their profile will default to the team logo.  Same with stat and record book pages, all players without a photo will display the team logo instead.

Organization and League schedules in the admin now only show league-wide events by default

Some leagues and organizations had a lot of events on their schedule and loading all of those events on the schedule when in the admin took a long time.  We’ve made a change so that only league and organization wide events and games will display on the schedule by default.  This will allow the schedule page to load much more quickly.  To view games and events for individual teams just go to that team’s schedule.

Teams now have social media options

We’ve added social media to each team under leagues and organizations.  When adding information about a team you can specify their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram links.  The social media icons display on the team header for the team pages.

team_social

It also displays on the league/organization listing of all teams.

Leagues and Organizations – control which schedule an event displays on

Previously for leagues and organizations you could specify which team an event was for but you couldn’t control if the event would display on the master schedule, the team’s schedule, or both.  Now you can.

For any event for a league or organization you have a few new options.

event_show_options

You can specify whether the event appears on the master schedule, the team schedule, or both.  If you check organization/league schedule the event will display on the master schedule.  If you check team schedule the event will display on team schedules.

For organizations, in addition to specifying which schedule the event will appear on you can now also create “league-wide” events where the event will display on all of the teams that are in a league.

event_show_league

In the example above, the event will display on the team schedule for all teams in the CMCBL league.

Better Schedule Page

Based on feedback from some of our leagues, we have changed the schedule page within the admin in a few different ways to make it even easier to use.

The first is that for teams, leagues, and organizations, past events are now hidden by default.  No more scrolling through lots of old results to get to the game you want to score.

schedule_no_past

You can easily view past events by checking the box to show past events if you do need to view a game or event that has already taken place.

schedule_past

For leagues and organizations you can now also filter the schedule by team to reduce the number of events on the page.  Just select the team you want to filter the schedule by and you will only see events and games for that team.

schedule_team_filter

Hopefully this helps make it easier for you to maintain your schedule.  If you have questions or comments we would love to hear them!  Please post a comment below or let us know through the support form.

Manage League and Organization Divisions

You’ve always been able to add a team to a division in league and organization websites but a few weeks ago we released a feature that allows you to add, update, and delete divisions.

After logging into a league or organization website, go to Teams > Divisions.  You will see a page that lists all of your divisions.  From here you can add divisions, update existing divisions, or delete divisions.

divisions_list

For leagues, you change the division name.  For organizations, you can also change the league a division is in.

divisions_update

For teams in a league or organization, you can now change the division right from the team update page.

divisions_team_update

Hopefully you can now do more with your divisions, thanks to Greg from the Northern Illinois All-Star League for the suggestion.

iScore for Leagues and Organizations

We are happy to announce that you can now use iScore with your your Atomic Leagues league or organization website!  As with team websites, any league or organization on the All-Star plan can use iScore.  For leagues, iScore is included at no cost for two teams.  For organizations, iScore is included for four teams.  For both leagues and organizations, additional teams are $20/year.

Using iScore with your league or organization is easy!  Just go to manage->iScore after logging in and click the add iScore for team link.

iscore_list

Enter the Customer Id from your mobile device to verify everything is configured correctly.

iscore_verify

Select the team in Atomic Leagues to sync to, the team from iScore on your mobile device to use as the source, and the season for the initial sync.

iscore_information

Hopefully leagues and organizations take advantage of using iScore, it really is a great way to get your statistics on your website.  If you have questions or comments we would love to hear them!  Please post a comment below or let us know through the support form.

Teams in League and Organization Websites now have their own Stat and Record Book Pages

Teams within league or organization websites now have their own statistics and record book pages.  Take a look at the Brownsville team’s batting statistics.

teamstats

Each team page allows you to view statistics specific to that team.  Like a lot of features in Atomic Leagues, you don’t have to do anything to take advantage of this.  If you are tracking stats on a league or organization website, team stats and record books are already there!

Thanks to Jim from the Kewaskum A’s and Rock River Baseball League for suggesting this!  If you have questions, suggestions, or comments about Atomic Leagues, we would love to hear them! Please post a comment below or let us know through the support form.

Now Filter Stats by League

In July we added the ability for teams to have multiple leagues for a season and following up on that, you can now filter statistics on any stats page by league.

For those teams that are only in a single league, the filter is pretty simple:

league_header

And for teams in multiple leagues, there are additional filters you can apply to let you view statistics for any league games or for a specific league:

league_header_multiple

Teams can now have Multiple Leagues for a Season

We didn’t have any requests for this feature in the first three years of Atomic Leagues but it has been a popular request in 2013 as we have had multiple teams asking to be able to have multiple leagues for a single season.

It took longer than expected to implement this but we are happy to announce that now a team can have multiple leagues for a season!

You will find a Leagues option now available under the Manage menu when you log in.  Clicking on the link will bring you to a page where you can add and remove leagues for a season.

multiple_leagues_add

By adding additional leagues to a season you will now get a drop-down on the add/update game pages that let you select which league the game is for.

multiple_leagues_game

Additional league information now also displays on the schedule page to indicate which league the game is for.

multiple_leagues_public

I’m sure the next question for many of you that were looking for this feature is “great, but how can we filter our standings, stats, schedule, etc. by league?”  The short answer for now is that you can’t, but we will be gradually incorporating league filters into the rest of the website over the next few months.  Allowing teams to add multiple leagues to a season and then indicating which league a game is for is the first step in allowing this to happen and sets everything up.

Thanks goes out to Craig from the West Bend 7 Up, Jim from the Kewaskum A’s, and Brad from the Neosho Rockets for suggesting this feature.  As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, please contact us by submitting a support ticket or leaving a comment below.

Team Wins/Losses for Leagues

In October we introduced the ability for teams to add historical wins/losses for seasons they didn’t have individual games for.  We have seen a number of teams take advantage of this feature and add historical season wins/losses.  For example, the Spring Hill Chargers now have 26 seasons of wins and losses.

Since then we have also received a number of requests to make this available for leagues and I am happy to announce that it is ready!  Leagues can now add historical wins/losses just like teams can.

Just go to manage -> Season Wins/Losses after logging in, pick a season to add wins/losses to and once you add wins/losses they will display on the league standings page for historical seasons.

Special thanks to Allen from the Fall River Independent Baseball League and Shawn from the Stearns County League for suggesting this feature.  If there are other features you would like to see added or if you have any suggestions or feedback, please leave a comment below or submit a support ticket.
