Online Payments Updates:
Different Handicap Rules For Individual and Team - Added support for two different handicap rules for individual and team handicaps to game rules and an updated UI.
Individual Points Win/Loss Tracking - Individual points are now tracked in the bowlers profile. With this we have added individual points to each bowler's row in team lists, printed standings, and leaderboards.
Drop Average Limit - Drop average limits have been added to league rules. This works for limits on individual handicaps, as well as team handicaps.
Game Award Reports - Game awards for 250+, 279+, 290+ and 700 Series have been added to the Adult/Youth Award Report as options. We have also added options for All Adult Awards, and All Youth Awards.
Standings Print Sort By Lane - Printed standings bowler list can now be sorted by lane, to give a preview of this week's matchups.
Bench Bowlers On Recaps - Bench bowlers are now available to be listed in recap sheets up to 5 bowlers per team.
Onboarding Checklists - Getting up and started with your new league season as quickly and easily as possible is our main priority. To help you along the way, we've created checklists to guide you through the process.
Cloud Scoring Status - The connection status between your center's scoring server and LeaguePals Cloud Scoring is now available on your dashboard.
Refresh Match - Inside edit match, we have added a refresh match button. This will take the match that's in edit mode, and re-score the match. This is useful when changing league rules, and needing to re-score old matches.
Bowler Update Team Name - Bowlers now have the ability to update their own team's name from their LeaguePals app.
As requested from our great customers, we have made many vacant and vacancy enhancements.
Vacant Bowler - Vacant bowlers will now automatically show in teams rosters when they do not have enough bowlers to fill the team. This was previously limited to printed recap sheets, but is now shown on manage teams page as well. As bowlers are added to the team, the Vacants will disappear.
Vacant Teams - Vacant teams will now automatically show in leagues with odd numbers of teams. This was also previously limited to printed recap sheets, but will now show on manage teams. As you add teams to the league, the Vacant Team will disappear when an even number of teams are added.
Vacant Scores Based On Gender Or Age - There is now a new rule setting in your league rules to turn on different Vacant scores based on Gender or Age.
These options will show when editing teams with this rule enabled in manage teams on Vacant Bowlers and Teams. Just select from the dropdown to select which Vacancy Score to choose for the team.
These options are also now available on adding or editing matches as well.
We really appreciate your constant feedback, and please don't hesitate to reach out with any you have.

We've been hard at work getting ready for when your leagues will be back! Check out our latest updates and changes:
Historical Standings - Historical Standings Sheets are now available for all of your active and archived leagues. There is no action necessary to enable historical standings, as long as your league's matches for each week are available in the database. The new week selector at the top of the page will change the week for all data inside the scoring tab. If your league was a mid-season conversion, historical standings will be available up until the week you converted to LeaguePals.
Duplicate League - We understand getting back to leagues is a busy time, and in that process creating leagues as fast as possible is important. We have added duplicate league function that will allow you to copy a previous season's league, or even just a template you want to use for multiple new leagues.
All information from the previous league is pre-populated, just decide which information you want to bring or change.
Bring some, all, or none of your league bowlers, and their previous league season data.
Lane Schedule Modifications - We're glad that centers are open and taking precautions for social distancing in their centers. Based on feedback from our centers, we have implemented two types of lane schedule modifications that can be enabled from your edit/create league wizard "League Info" tab:
One Team Per Pair Of Lanes: Enabling this option will allow your lane schedule to enable each team in your matchups on separate pairs spaced across four lanes. By default the first team will be placed on the first available lane in your settings. Selecting the right arrow as well will update that weeks matchups to the second lane in the pair. Typically, your default lane schedule will not have enough lanes to accommodate this. If this happens, you will get a warning to please add more lanes.
Skip A Pair Of Lanes: Enabling this option will allow your lane schedule to enable skipping a pair of lanes between matches.
Changes Made On Lanes Modal - It is now easier than ever to make and approve changes bowlers make on lane. We've added an "Add All To Roster" button that will help in week 1 when you send out empty teams, and bowlers enter their names on the lanes and you want to create all the teams from those entries. We have also added a warning when a bowler's name entered on lanes has been found in your bowlers database. Clicking the database icon will link the bowler to the databased bowler.
As always we look forward to your feedback, and happy to help get your leagues up and running when you're ready to open!
We hope you're all staying safe and healthy during these unprecedented times. While bowling may be on hold for now, we're still pushing ahead and making improvements based on your feedback, and when leagues do return, we'll be ready to go better than ever!
Reports - We now have a whole new reporting view where you can preview the report prior to printing or exporting to your desired format of CSV, XLS, or PDF.
Customize the columns in your report by dragging and organizing as desired. Sort columns by clicking on the column title.
Print reports or save them as a pdf. If the report doesn't look as desired, change your print settings for portrait/landscape, and or change the scale to fit more or less content on the printed report.
If you have any questions on this or anything else, please let us know we're here to help!

As a dedication to keeping our software fresh, as well as easy to navigate and view we have made the below visual updates based on your recent feedback:
Increased font size on mobile - Feedback we've received from bowlers stated they wish that the font in the standings on their mobile devices was too small to read. We have increased the font size where applicable.
Schedule Tab - To make things a little simpler to navigate, we have moved the lane schedule to its own tab inside the standings.
Bowler Substitute List - Bowlers now have the ability to view the substitute list from inside their rules tab.
New Manage Teams UI - We have updated and simplified the manage teams area. After clicking the dropdown on a team, you can click the crayon in the top right to turn the team into edit mode to make changes.
Click on Save or Cancel when completed.
As always please let us know if you enjoy the changes, and let us know if you have any other feedback.

One of the most requested items was to make it a lot easier to edit matchups once they're already entered. We heard you loud and clear:
Edit Matchups - When clicking edit, you can now fully edit a matchup by changing the teams, bowlers, order, averages, totals, pins and more.
Add Scores - We've now updated the Add scores screen to have a similar feel as the new edit matchup screen.
Position Round Refresh - Next week position rounds are now automatically refreshed when unlocked inside the lane schedule.
As always we appreciate any and all feedback and past and future updates.
