Other Fixtures (Jan 2011)
A new section has been added to Full-Time, "Other Fixtures", which allows leagues to record fixtures involving outside teams, for example County Cups, Friendlies, etc. Other fixtures can be reported (SMS, login etc) as usual.

A major new section has been added to the Fixture Wizard for Full-Time, called "Other Fixtures". These will allow leagues to include outside cup fixtures, friendlies etc (any fixture that doesn't currently sit within "league" or "league cups").
A separate guide (which in due course will form a new chapter of the "Advanced Options") is attached, and this covers all of the various facets of "Other Fixtures":-
Update Short Codes - Each "fixture group" (including existing divisions and cups) can now have a 4 character code defined for public display (e.g. Prem for a Premier Division), making it easier to differentiate between various competitions (particularly the cups).
Other Fixture Groups - How to create "Other Fixture" Groups - you can have as many or as few as you want, and each can be given a Sequence number to determine where it sits in the priority list of other fixtures.
External Teams - How to maintain and create "External" Teams - teams who aren't in your league, but play against your teams in "Other Fixtures". Teams can be switched from "External" Teams to "Internal" Teams (teams within the League) and vice-versa. Note that a team cannot be set as "External" if it's been entered in a division (past or present) or has players or team administrators assigned to it.
Adding/Updating Other Fixtures - How to add and update "Other Fixtures".
"Other Fixtures" are included within the public listings of fixtures, results and match stats (if you choose) and can be reported by SMS text message in the usual way, and their results can also be input by league administrators, or if they've been given access, team administrators via Login.
