  • New setting “publishing line-ups” in grade settings
  • Association admins can set when line-ups should be published to the participant portal prior to a game in grade settings, admins will have the choice of;

Adding coaches from participating organisations to the lineup  Association and Club Admins will have the ability to add a coach to a specific game from the team lineup page as long as they have registered as a coach to that organisation in the same competition and season.  Previously coaches were required to be allocated to the team, however they can now be added to only a particular game if required.  Registered coaches can be added to a game from the admin portal only by Association or Club admins. This will allow for instances when coaches may be filling in for another coach.
