Season Preparation

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Update Your League & Season Structure

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It all starts when you begin the season-setup process.  It is here that you perform some initialization tasks such as:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Set the global options for your league and season. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Choose the columns that will display in your standings; Set various communications options; 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Create the Division and Team structures

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Enter Field Information

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Enter the Schedules

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After the league structure has been set up, the schedules must be entered.  This is done using the InGS Schedule module.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Assign your Administrators

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

With the structure and schedules in place, you can now assign any administrators who will be participating in the maintenance of the standings, schedules, news and ads.

The league administrator is automatically granted the authority to perform all functions al all levels within that league.  In some leagues, this is all you will need and that person will carry out all the administration functions within InGS.  But more typically, you will delegate certain responsibilities to others.

Delegation is achieved by taking a specific function (e.g. entering game scores, updating schedules, sponsorship maintenance, game approval, etc.), and granting authorization for an individual to perform that function at a specific level (e.g. For a team, for an entire division; for an entire season, etc.)  For example:

  • John Doe is allowed to enter game results for the Dodger's team
  • Will Smythe is allowed to update schedules for the Mickey division
  • David Dillin is allowed to enter division news for the Minors division

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Entering Game Scores and Highlights

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Administrators enter scores and highlights

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anyone that you’ve authorized can now enter the results for their team or division by selecting a game from the InGS “game list” and entering line scores and highlights.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Game results are not immediately applied to the online standings.  Instead, they are placed into a "pending approval" state.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Approve Game Scores

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This step allows for the review of each game’s scores and highlights by one of the “game approvers” that you’ve authorized.  When the results are approved, they are immediately integrated into the online standings for all to see.  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Watch Notifications are Sent

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anyone who has set a "Game Watch" for either of these teams or their division(s) is sent an email notifying them of these game results.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Communicate

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Set Watches

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Watches are special settings that individuals set for themselves which result in email notifications being sent to them when certain events take place.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A Watch can be set for a specific team or for an entire division.  Setting a Watch for a division is equivalent to setting a Watch for each team in that division.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Watches can be set for the following events:

 

 

 

 

  • Game Results

 

 

 

 

 

You will be notified when game scores and highlights are entered for your selected team(s)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Schedule Changes

 

 

 

 

 

You will be notified whenever the schedule changes for your selected team(s)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • News Updates

 

 

 

 

 

You will be notified whenever the team or division news pages are updated.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Update the News

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

News sections are found on each season and division page as well as on each team page.  Each news page is maintained separately at the appropriate level.  A division administrator will update the news on the division page and team managers and administrators normally maintain the news on their team's page.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

News pages are a good way to perform a variety of functions including: 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Display schedule for work parties
  • Display meeting dates and times
  • Post the team practice schedule
  • Remind players and coaches of upcoming events and obligations

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Send Invitations, Reminders and Messages

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Administrators and managers can communicate with one another using the Message Center.  Emails, reminders and invitations are amongst the types of message that can easily be sent after selecting the list of recipients from the league structure. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maintain Sponsorships & Advertisements

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Maintain your league's sponsor ads online

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You control what ads and messages are placed on your web pages.  Several types of message can be placed online in several "zones".  All under your control!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Create Text Ads for your sponsors

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Text ads are created easily using the InGS ad module.  Ads can be placed online or updated in a matter of minutes!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  1. Upload graphic ads from your sponsors

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Graphic Ads can be obtained from the sponsor and uploaded to InGS where they can be migrated into an Ad Spot just as you would for a text ad.
