Once you are ready to start placing games onto your schedule you have the option to use our smart scheduler which will place the your matches onto the schedule for you for the day, and group you are working on.
In you event go to schedule in the Grey Menu bar and then the chart tab.
Review your Field Setup Controls, by clicking on the blue field setup controls bar. Here is a list of some items you will want to review.
a) You only have your current event fields showing. You can exclude fields from the event by clicking on the red x at the far right of each field. This function does not remove fields from your account, it will simply hides them from this specific event. For instructions on how to add a field click here.
b) Set the fields for the appropriate age groups. We recommend being broad, not specific here. For example, if your small sided games are on 18A, 18B, 19A and 19B, open the fields for all small age groups that could play on these fields. We can set the fields to specific age groups later. To open a field for an age group, click on the word No, to close it click on the word Yes, in the appropriate cell.
c) Please review the Open and Close We often see the close time as Am instead of PM. Another common mistake is having the fields close 5 or ten minutes before a game would end. Our system will not start a game if the end time surpasses the close time.
Select the Date from the calendar that you’d like to work on and then a Flight you want to work with from the drop down menu.
Select the appropriate fields for the age group by clicking on the Show link on the light blue bar that says additional controls. The screen will open and display a scroll menu containing all the fields associated with the event. You can choose to show a single field, any combination of fields or all the fields.
Just below the chart you will see a list of the games in this age group. Look for the lowest numbered match at the bottom of the list. Drag and drop this match on to the desired field and time.
**Note: Always start with the lowest number match when using the Smart Scheduler.**
On the Smart Scheduler in the right corner press the start button. This will begin the scheduling process and you will be able to see the status bar work through all of your matches.
The screen will refresh and games will appear on the chart. Make sure you take a look at the Unscheduled Games area below the chart to make sure no games “Failed”. If any matches failed to be scheduled you can recheck your settings or manually schedule the match by drag and drop.
