The system requires Playing Seasons to be set up to define the dates available and the session times that can be booked in the diary.
Playing seasons also define the session times and the dates within which leagues and competitions must be played.
The system does not allow any bookings outside of the session times defined in the playing seasons.
The system does not allow a league or competition to start or end outside of a single playing season's dates.
On the menu choose Manager -> Playing seasons:
The playing season list page appears:
This page contains a table displaying:
- Season title
- Season start date
- Season end date
- Website (controls whether the playing season is visible to members on the club's website)
- Categories button (see Managing categories)
- Edit/View button (see below)
Click the green Add new button on the bottom right to reach the page for adding a new season:
