The Update Games screen allows the status for all games in a given league and season to be updated quickly. This is much quicker than editing the games one-by-one on the Manage Games screen. The game dates, times, and teams cannot be changed on this screen; use the Manage Games screen to make those changes. The primary data fields and functions on this screen are described below and annotated on the screenshot that follows.
- Select the League & Season. Begin by selecting a league and season and pressing the Update Games button to display all the games in that league and season.
- Update the Score. Enter the Home and Visitor scores.
- Update the Game Time & Period. Enter the current game time and period. Note that “Time Remaining” may be the time remaining or the time expired, depending on the sport.
- Select Is Open or Is Final. It is important to mark each game as final so that the shortcodes can display the appropriate status on the front end. If a game is marked final, the game time remaining and the period are irrelevant. (There is no need to enter 0:00 as the time and 4 as the period.)
Is Open will be used in a future release for live scoring.
