Install November 23rd 2010

The following changes have been made today, feedback to http://leaguerepublic.com/contact.jsp

1) OTHER FIXTURES

ADMIN HOME --> FIXTURE WIZARD --> OTHER FIXTURES

You can now create fixtures that are external to division or competition fixtures e.g. friendlies or external cup competitions.

These fixtures exist within "other fixture groups". Other fixtures will appear on the division home page if one of the teams is in the division and also on the list fixture pages.

You can create external teams from the other fixtures page too i.e. teams that don't play within your league structure.

2) DIVISION / COMPETITION / OTHER SHORT CODES

ADMIN HOME --> FIXTURE WIZARD --> SHORT CODES

You can create short codes for each of the divisions, competitions and other fixture groups. These will override the standard L, C, O notation e.g. DIV1 or CUP1

3) TABLE ADJUSTMENTS

ADMIN HOME --> TABLE ADJUSTMENTS

In addition to the existing points adjustments and score adjustments, you can create adjustments for the following columns on the table

Played, Won, Drawn /Tied and Lost

4) EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS

ADMIN HOME --> EMAIL WIZARD --> NOTIFICATIONS

Enable for your current season on this page.

Different roles can now now receive email notifications when a fixture relating to them is changed. Emails will only be sent to verified email addresses (ADMIN HOME --> EMAIL WIZARD --> EMAIL VERIFICATION)

Fixture Notification: Whenever the date and time of a fixture is changed or the venue of a fixture changes an email is delivered to verified email addresses for the selected roles.

Referee Notification: Whenever the assigned referees for a fixture are changed an email is delivered to verifified email addresses for the selected roles.

Note: emails are sent out 1 hour after the last change altogether in one email message. You can manually trigger these messages to be sent out when required.

SMS INSTRUCTIONS

Please note following is valid for UK leagues only, you can allow team administrators to enter results from their mobile phone via SMS (i.e. sending a text message)

To enable SMS

1) Setup team administrators - see FAQ here

2) Allow team administrators to enter results via SMS:

Go to My Account --> Admin Home --> SMS Wizard - click on teams --> Add New --> Create sms Result Entry Subscriber

3) Ensure teams have short codes from: SMS Wizard --> Change Short Codes

How It Works

Approximately 15 minutes after match starts (time of the fixture) a message is received on a Team Administrator's mobile phone, an example message received might be:

"LeagueRepublic Automated Results: CHE1 v MNU1 Sun 21 Sep 14:00. Reply with home and away scores exactly in the format: H A e.g. 2 1".

After the match reply to the message giving the score for the fixture, home team first, away team second. (H and A stands for Home / Away).

For example:- 3 3 (P P for postponents and A A abandonments). The SMS score is processed by a computer, so the format needs to be correct.

If a team administrator manages more than one team they may be asked to send in an additional code with the result to identify the team.

Notes about Results Approval

Once the result has been received it will shown immediately on the site if you "auto-approve" results.

If you wish to manually approve the results then visit (My Account --> Admin Home --> League Setup Wizard--> League Options

How much does it cost?

We offer it as a free service. The cost for the person to send in the result would be the same as sending a text message to any UK mobile number.
