Postpone Games Without Rescheduling

by


Weather is unpredictable and when you’re cancelling a game you might not know exactly when to reschedule it for. This is what we had in mind when developing our newest feature for events.

You can now postpone and reschedule event without immediately having to choose a specific day/time for the makeup. Once you know the specifics, go back into TeamPages and update the event with the new day, time and location. We’re also adding support for events without a definite start time: you can now simply leave the start time as “To Be Determined”. The calendar and basic scheduling services haven’t changed, though, so your workflow will only get better!

Here’s where you can find these new features:


Event Postponement

To postpone an event just head to the main page for any event either from the schedule or the calendar and lookout for the “Cancel/Postpone” button. From here you can mark an event as postponed, enter a message explaining the postponement, and (if the event isn’t already in the past) notify your entire team of the changes.

Postponing an event is as simple as cancelling one!

After postponing event, you can reschedule it either directly from the event page or by creating a new event and marking it as a rescheduling of the previous one.

Or, reschedule your event by starting from scratch!

 

Postponed events won’t count for your standings, aren’t tracked for your attendance, and won’t affect your scoreboard. Smart!


TBD Events

Events can now have their time marked as “To Be Determined”. Find this as an option in both the single event scheduler and the multischeduler. When using the CSV Import functionality on the multischeduler the time column can now be any of “TBA”, “TBD”, or blank to mark that event as a TBD event. Forget to schedule a time? Don’t worry, the event will function normally even if the event passes without a time. Just don’t forget to tell your members the real event time.

Creating TBD events is as easy as clicking!
