Teams, Locations and Times

Add / Change / Delete

Click on Data > Teams, Locations and Times to display one convenient window with three separately sizeable sections. Each section contains a list of teams, locations or times. The lists are no longer restricted to row-by-row editing. They can be edited in the same way that you can edit a text file using Windows Notepad:

When you delete a team any corresponding entries in the Team Locations list is automatically deleted. Changing the position of a team in the list does not affect the Team Locations list but it will change the team matchups in the schedule.

When you add or delete a time, the Dates / Times calendar and schedule are automatically updated as well. Changing the position of a time in the list does not affect the calendar but it may change the times of games in an existing schedule depending on which Time option was used when the schedule was generated.

Modify

Click on Modify > Teams, Locations and Times when you want to rename teams or locations or substitute times after generating a schedule without altering any other aspect of the schedule. The new names and times are substituted wherever they occur.

Dates / Times Windows

The Dates / Times and Playing Days windows are combined into one convenient window with three separately sizeable sections.
