GameChanger Organizations have taken the next big step with the release of Head-to-Head (H2H) Game Scheduling for Baseball and Softball. Org Admins are now able to access a new Schedule tab within the organization to create H2H Games against teams that have joined the organization.
In order to create a game between two teams, those teams must both be members of the organization. Teams which have been invited to the Organization but have not yet accepted that invite will not be available in the teams list and cannot be scheduled against.
As the Organization Administrator when you access the Schedule tab within the Organization you will see an Add Game button at the bottom of the screen. Tap that button to create a H2H Game.
As the Organization Admin, set the following game attributes:
Once you have made the required selections you will tap Save and the app will return you to the Organization Schedule screen. After a few seconds your new H2H Matchup will be present in the list.
On event creation, the two Team Communities will receive a notification that the H2H matchup was created and it will be present in their Team Chat as well.
When tapping that H2H matchup in the Organization Schedule list you will see three options:
This is because the H2H matchup also creates two Team Games when it is created - one for Team A and one for Team B. These games will automatically stay in sync in the event that the Organization Admin makes any changes to the original H2H matchup from the Organization Schedule screen. Once saved, changes will be reflected in both Team Schedules automatically.
When tapping the “View Game Info” button the Organization Admin will be able to review the details entered but they will not be able to Edit those details at this time (H2H Edit is coming soon). The Organization Admin will, however, be able to Delete the H2H matchup which will automatically remove the game from the Organization Schedule as well as from the two Team Schedules. A team message and notification will be sent to both team communities when the game is deleted and will be marked as cancelled.
The following features will be available shortly to round out the H2H Event creation process as well as enabling H2H Scoring for the start of the season:
