Add and Edit Fields

Each league must add its fields into the system. This is something that is typically done only once -- after that the fields are in your database. To add a field, click on Manage Fields from the User Home Page. You'll see a list of your fields, and at the bottom of the page is a form to add a new field.

A few notes on adding new fields:

1. Be sure the field abbreviation is no more than 25 characters -- this is the name that is usually shown, and it should be readable but short.

2. Do NOT leave out the short name. If you do, the field name will be blank on drop down lists.

3. If the field is used by a different league, and the other league is not an "affiliated organization" (See Add Affiliated Organizations ), then ask our support team to "share" the field with that league (See Sub-Fields and Sharing Fields). That way both leagues can use the field and our system can detect/avoid field conflicts between games in the two leagues.

If you have a large field complex, you need to enter each field separately. This is necessary so that the scheduling logic can properly detect field conflicts, and so that teams and referees know which field to go to.

If a field is sometimes split into smaller fields, you need to enter each smaller field separately, but you need too make the smaller fields a "sub-field" of the larger field (See Sub-Fields and Sharing Fields). This is also necessary so that the system can properly detect field conflicts, and so that teams and referees know which field to go to.

You can assign field referee coordinators to a field. Those coordinators can only make assignments for games on their field.

It is strongly recommended that you enter directions for fields. The Team Schedule page displays directions to any field on that schedule. When you enter directions, use "<br>" to indicate a new line. You can put in other HTML formatting tags, if you know some HTML, or you can get your webmaster to help you if you want. For more information on HTML go to A Quick Primer on HTML Tags. You can also embed interactive maps into your directions. See Embedding Maps into Directions.

Comments will appear in italics after the directions. Practice Venue Comments and Permit Dates appear on the Team Schedule page.

If a field is not available for scheduling, click Manage Fields and click on "Edit"" next to the field. Click at the bottom of the form. This will remove it from the visible fields list. You can reinstate the field later by editing the field again, clicking also show unavailable fields, and clicking .
