LeagueApps allows you to schedule games between two teams in separate programs. This can be useful if you have several divisions in a season and want to give teams in different divisions the opportunity to play one another. This may be a popular option for soccer, softball, or other sports.
Follow these steps in your LeagueApps management console to schedule games with teams across different programs:
Click into a Program's Schedule/Calendar and click Add or Edit a Game. Be sure to select a sport that has multiple programs on your site. (For example - if you choose to schedule flag football games with teams in different programs, make sure there are at least two flag football programs created in your database).
Select the Home Team
Select the Away Team. Choose the last option on the 'Away Team' dropdown, which reads Team in Separate Program.
Select the program and program team for the Away Team slot. (Make sure the second program has existing teams for you to choose).
Enter the schedule details and click Save Game or Save Game and Add Another.
Additionally, you have the option to include cross-program games in standings calculations. This option is if you want the game results to impact both teams' rankings in their respective programs.
Simply follow these steps:
- Go to the Settings tab in your management console.
- Select Edit Standings Rules under the Scoring and Standings section.
- Check the box that reads Include cross-program games in standings calculations. Leave this box un-checked if you prefer that cross-program games have no impact on the standings.
- Click Save Rules.
