Modifying a draft draw
You can manually modify individual games with the draft draw view if you wish. Simply select the dropdown arrow beside the field you wish to change. You can modify the teams, game time and venue.
Click Save to save your changes or click + Add to calendar to apply the draw to your fixture calendar.
Adding or Deleting Individual Fixtures
There are occasions where a standard round robin is not required, and additional fixtures may need to be played, or a fixture removed from the draw. Fixtures can be added to a draw by using the + icon next to the Round Number. Fixtures can be deleted by clicking the trashcan icon next to the fixture. It is not possible to delete an entire round by deleting fixtures individually and at least one fixture must remain. To delete an entire round, the round date should be removed from phase settings and the draw regenerated without that date.
Note: When regenerating a draw, it is advised to export the draw first to obtain a copy of fixtures. Also be aware that regenerating a draw will un-assign any officials that had been previously assigned.
You may prefer to play a whole round of games on an alternate date due to venue availability or other scheduling requirements.
1. Click next to the name of the Round
2. Select the Round that you want to swap with
3. Click Swap
Note: If a round has already been played, the round will not be available to swap.
Modifying a Home/Away Draw
SKED™ displays the total number of home vs away fixtures for each team in the draws modal. A fixture will be counted as a home game when the team appears on the left of the draw and they are playing at one of their preferred home venues.
To amend the home/away allocation, click to the right of each fixture. The teams will swap to the opposite side of the draw, and the venue for the fixture will update to the newly selected home teams preferred venue.
Alternatively, you can select any team as per the dropdown list option.
Modifying fixture allocations for one team for all games within a phase
If you would prefer the venue allocation suggested by SKED™ for two teams to be swapped with one another for all games within the draw, you can achieve this by selecting Bulk Edit.
Note: If a balanced draw is required I.e. all teams play all other teams once. The bulk edit option should not be used if some fixtures have already been played to avoid repeat fixtures occurring during the phase.
1. Click Bulk Edit within the draft draw modal
2. Select the two teams that you would like to swap
3. Click Save
Using "Bulk Edit" to swap teams within a Home/Away draw
In a Home/Away competition, using "Bulk Edit" to move teams into a new position within the draw, will not automatically update to reflect a home preferred venue for the updated fixtures. The original venue assigned to the fixtures will be retained. Using the swap home/away option (twice) will force fixtures to be allocated the home teams first preferred venue without considering if the venue is available. Validation of the venues' availability will occur when the individual fixture is either saved or the draw is added to the calendar.
Having the Venue View open on a separate screen will assist in providing visibility of available preferred venues. Alternatively fixtures can remain unallocated and moved to a venue on the Venue View once the draw has been added to the calendar.
Modifying a draw once it has been added to the calendar (Section View)
Once a draw has been added to the fixtures calendar, the Comp Builder view will display Added ✔ for that section and the teams will appear greyed-out.
Note: If a draw contains unallocated fixtures, it will display the text 'Added!' to warn you that further action is required from you.
If you do wish to make changes to a draw that has already been added to the fixtures calendar, you can:
a) Make the changes to the games within the fixtures calendar directly (in which case such changes will automatically become visible elsewhere throughout SKED™).
b) Edit the draw by clicking Added ✔or b This displays the draw pop-up window. Click Edit Draw and select which dates should become editable (note that you cannot change the draw for games that have already been played). Once you have modified the draw click Save or + Add to Calendar.
Note: When you edit a draw SKED™ removes those fixtures from your calendar until you click + Add to Calendar.
