Site Administration - Day to Day (Fixtures)
The ‘Day to Day’ button’s menu selections are illustrated below.
This gives you a list of all your competition’s upcoming fixtures. All your League and Cup fixtures will be automatically shown here when they are created on the site. You can search this list by division, cup and date to narrow the list down, or you can scroll through it using the links at the bottom of the list.
If you wish to add fixtures, you would normally use the Fixture Management facility in the Set Up>Competitions>Divisions section.
If you need to add ‘extra’ fixtures, then add a fixture by clicking the ‘Add New Fixture’ link at the top of the page. A page will be displayed that allows you to input the division, date, start time, number of innings, home and away teams, and ground. Only teams that have been set up to play in the division will be displayed when you select a team. The ground is linked to the home team, so if the home team have a Play-Cricket site, then a list of their grounds will be displayed when you click on the Ground dropdown list. When you have input all the required information, click the ‘Save’ button, and it will be added to your list.
On the right-hand side of the list, there are several options.
View – a magnifying glass, allows you simply to view the fixture details. This will normally be just the date, time, type, ground etc.
Edit – You can change any of the details that were previously set up. At this point, you may select the match officials.
Select – Tick one or all boxes (using the Select All box) to select fixtures to be published, unpublished or deleted.
Having made selections by ticking the “Select” box for one or more fixtures, click the Publish, Unpublish or Delete button above the search criteria panel. Unpublished fixtures are not visible on the public side of the site.
This facility allows administrators to make changes to the date, time or number of innings for the fixtures that have been selected. This is useful if the fixtures have been created incorrectly by hand rather than via a spreadsheet upload. Select the fixtures to be changed by ticking the checkboxes, then click the Mass Edit button to get the screen below.
Allows you to extract the fixtures defined in the filters to an external file – spreadsheet, csv or XML format.
Note You cannot create your own cup fixtures from the Fixtures page.
This can only be done via the Set Up>Competitions>Cups function.
