Once teams and grades are created in a season, teams can be allocated to grades.
This article describes how an administrator can allocate teams to grades in the PlayHQ admin portal.
Allocate teams to grades
If you are an association/league administrator
Select the Competition Management main menu item, and then the appropriate Competition and Season tile, and then view the Grades tab.
Note: Association administrators control the opening/closing dates that club administrators can allocate their club teams to grades. An association administrator can always allocate any club team to a grade on behalf of a club. This process is the same as set out below for club administrators.
If you a club administrator
Select the Competition Management main menu item, and then select the appropriate 'View' button for the Competition Season, and then view the Grades tab.
Note: Club administrators are only able to allocate their club teams to grades when the 'lock' icon is open/green. If the lock icon is closed/grey, the ability for you to allocate teams has not as yet opened or has already closed. The association/league administrator controls the dates that club administrators can allocate their club teams to grades.
|(Closed lock icon)||Club administrators cannot allocate their club teams to grades. Hover over the icon to view the opening/closing dates that team allocation is possible.|
|(Open lock icon)||Club administrators can allocate their club teams to grades. Hover over the icon to view the opening/closing dates that team allocation is possible.|
Association and club administrators will arrive at essentially the same listing of Grades.
The following images show the view of a club administrator. The view is essentially the same for association/league administrators (but the lock icon does not apply to the ability to allocate teams).
Select the corresponding + button for the grade that you wish to allocate a team/s.
This will expand the view of the grade and expose the grade's Allocate a Team button.
Select the Allocate a Team button and then locate the team/s to allocate to the grade by using the team's tickbox.
Confirm the allocation of the team/s by selecting the Allocate # team/s button.
You will be returned to the list of grades, with the grade that teams have been allocated to showing the teams allocated to the grade.
You can select the Unallocate button to remove a team from the grade.
Select the - button to collapse the expanded view of the grade.
You can continue to allocate and/or unallocate teams to a grade until you decide to Generate Fixture for the grade.
