Who: Field Coordinator
For information about adding and editing fields, see Field Coordinator.
Whenever a schedule is created or a game is added or edited, the scheduling engine automatically checks for any field conflicts. A message will be displayed warning that there is a field conflict, and direct you to the View Field Usage or View Referee Assignments page to find the conflict. The message is just a warning -- the game is entered and the field assigned. A green "VENUE CONFLICT" will appear by the game on the schedule if there is a field conflict. The "VENUE CONFLICT" note is put in the game comments field -- so it can be reworded or removed if desired (See Edit Game to edit a game).
Each field in a field complex needs to be entered separately to avoid venue conflicts, e.g., King South, King North, etc.
If games are scheduled too tightly, then "VENUE CONFLICT" messages will occur. For example, league games scheduled for U-19 at 90 minute intervals will generate warnings, since the default interval for U-19 is 120 minutes. Either the games need to be scheduled at 120 minute intervals or the default interval shortened. See Definitions for an explanation of game intervals.
