Adding Notes to Events

Previously a lot of teams were using tags to add notes to events, but now you can now add short notes directly to your events that will display on the schedule.

Just enter a note when creating or updating an event.  If there is a link to a website in your note, enclose it in brackets.

event_notes

The note then displays on your website under the event and the link will be clickable.

Upcoming Events Widget

An Upcoming Events widget is now available to place on the home page or any page on your website. It lists the next five events on your schedule.

To add an Upcoming Events widget to your website, just to Website Appearance > Widgets and add a new widget.  Select Upcoming Events from the drop-down of widgets available.

upcoming_events_select

 

That’s it, the widget will be displayed on your website and list the next five events on your schedule.

Viewing all Games and Events for a Location

Team, league, and organization websites now include a schedule page for each location.  When clicking on the location name from your schedule, you will be taken to the map for the location (if there is a map) with the option to view the location schedule.

schedule_location_link

If the location doesn’t have a map, you will be taken right to the schedule.

Hopefully this will help with rescheduling and determining what games and events are at which location.  Thanks to Chad from the Mid-Ohio Baseball Association for the suggestion!  If you have questions, suggestions, or comments about Atomic Leagues, we would love to hear them!

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.

Option to not display Online Registrations on the Schedule

For a lot of online registrations it makes sense to display them on your schedule along with all of your other events.  You want your golf fundraiser, bowling night, etc. there.

However, for online registration only events, it has never made sense for them to be listed on the schedule.  Your online registration period may have a start and end date but it doesn’t actually need to be listed on the schedule as an event.

Now you can have it both ways.  For online registration only events you don’t have to display them on your schedule.  Online registration for physical events that have an event date can still be listed on the schedule.

Specifying whether to display an online registration on the schedule or not is easy, just check the Don’t display the online registration on the schedule and it won’t display.  Don’t check the box and it will.

hide_online_registration

Online registrations that don’t display on the schedule will still display on your online registrations page as well as in the current online registrations widget.

Hopefully this is something teams, leagues, and organizations will find useful.  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.

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.

Import Schedule page new and improved

Without a doubt over the last few years the most frequently asked question from Atomic Leagues users was “How do I use the Add Games Quickly page?”  Well, everyone can now breathe a sigh of relief because we were listening and are happy to announce that the old Add Games Quickly page has been completely destroyed, never to return.  Hooray!

In its place, starting today, is a brand new Import Schedule page that we hope will make importing your schedule much more intuitive and friendly.  If you have your schedule in Excel or are able to save it as a CSV file it should only take a few minor adjustments to import into your website.

You can import both events and games in a single file and your columns can be in any order.  After uploading your file you will be able to preview it and make any corrections before actually performing the import.

Simply choose a CSV schedule file to import.

schedule_import_choose_file

 

Preview the Results

schedule_import

 

Click the Import button and that’s it!

schedule_import_results

 

Hopefully this makes it easier for everyone to import their schedule.  Thanks goes out to the entire Atomic Leagues community for their feedback on the old Add Games Quickly page and everyone can rest easy tonight, that page is gone forever!

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.
