You can add finals games to a grade's finals fixture at any point. This article covers the process and elements of adding a finals game to a fixture.
Note: There are 2 main differences between adding a finals game and adding a regular season game:
- If you don't know the name of the team that will play in the finals game, you can select the 'TBC Team' option as a team place-holder from the drop-down list of teams in the Home team / Away team fields. You can then return to edit the game to set the teams to play in the added game.
- The round selector allows you to select from finals rounds.
Adding a game to a finals fixture
Select the Competition Management main menu item, and then the appropriate Competition and Season tile, and then select the Grades tab. Select the 'View Fixture' button for the appropriate grade and then the 'Finals' sub-tab. Select the 'Add a Game' button:
You'll arrive on the 'Create new game' page. Use the screenshot and table below to add the game:
|1||Game details||Home team||Select the home team for your new game from the list of teams that are currently allocated to the grade. You can choose 'TBC Team' if you do not as yet know the team.|
|'Team swap'||Select the team swap icon to switch the home and away teams for the game.|
|Away team||Select the away team for your new game from the list of teams that are currently allocated to the grade. You can choose 'TBC Team' if you do not as yet know the team.|
|Round||Select a round from those that were created when you generated your finals fixture.|
|Game alias||Enter an optional 'game alias' if you would like an alternative name for the game to display in the fixture.|
|2||Allocation||Venue||Select a venue from the full list of venues in the system. This is the venue that this game will be played at.|
|Playing surface (Court/field)||Selecting a venue enables the appropriate list of playing surfaces (court/field). Select from the list of available surfaces at the selected venue.|
|Date||Enter the date of the new game. The selected date can fall on an exception date, however, you will be reminded on the form if you do select an exception date.|
|Start time, End time||Enter a start time for the new game. The game's end time will automatically populate based on the total game duration that is set for the grade in the grade's settings.
Note that the minutes in the start time can only be entered in 5-minute increments (e.g. you cannot set the start time to 5:43 but either 5:40 or 5:45 is valid).
Once the required fields have been entered for the new game, the 'Add game' button will become available in the upper right corner of the form. Selecting this will add and display the new game in the round that was chosen within the grade's finals fixture.
