Generating a grade's fixture

Before you begin generating a grade's fixture, ensure the correct teams are allocated to the grade. 

The sections below will provide instructions for:

  1. Generating the fixture
  2. Configuring the fixture settings
  3. Reviewing the fixture pre-generation
  4. Viewing the fixture post-generation

Generating the fixture

Once two or more teams are allocated to a grade in a season, the "Generate Fixture" button will be enabled next to the grade's name. Once all the right teams are allocated to the grade select the "Generate Fixture" button:

Configuring the fixture Settings

Once you've selected the "Generate fixture" button, the Fixture settings page will display. Populate the form with the appropriate options–the screenshot and table below provide an overview:

Item Description
Grade start date

Set the start date for Round One of your fixture–the system will take into account the day of the week you selected when setting up your grade and commence the fixture from that day.

# of rounds
Set the number of rounds that will run for the regular season of the competition.
Note: The "Number of rounds" do not include finals rounds.
Set the frequency of rounds.
Note: Currently, the system only supports weekly games (games played on a 7 day cycle) when generating a fixture.
Set finals active/inactive
Finals defaults to enabled–you can disable it by switching the toggle off. It's recommended that you set up finals while generating your regular season fixture. If you do not set it up and want to do so later, you can follow the instructions in the Adding or removing a grade's finals article.
Standard format There are a number of standard finals formats available for selection if you are offering finals. You will only be able to select a format that includes up to the number of teams in the grade e.g. if 6 teams are in a grade, a 7 team finals format will not be available to be selected.
Custom finals game can be added to a standard finals series if required.
Custom format If the standard finals formats do not suit your needs, a custom finals format can be selected whereby the number of rounds is selected and finals games are manually created in each round.
Exception dates
Finally, set any exception dates for the grade - that is, days when the grade should not have any games. Exception dates created or updated at the season level will be visibile and can be adopted or ignored by deselecting the Season setting tickbox. Read a detailed breakdown in the managing exception dates for a grade  or season exception dates article.

Select the "Review Fixture" button, located in the top right-hand corner to commit your settings and proceed to review your fixture.

Reviewing the fixture pre-generation

Your fixture will be displayed for your final review with the relevant exception dates and finals dates included (if you've included these):

If you're unhappy with the details of how the fixture will be generated, select the "Cancel" button to take you back to the Grade tab, where you can make updates and choose to restart the "Generate Fixture" process.

Alternatively, select "Generate Fixture" to commit your settings and have the fixture created.

Viewing the fixture post-generation

Once your fixture is generated, you'll be able to view the fixture for the grade by accessing the "View fixture" button that now replaces the Generate Fixture button in the grade list. If you chose to generate finals rounds you will see tabs display to both the "Regular Season" rounds and the "Finals" rounds:
