Build 438 - 4/20/2015
Changes in Build 438
- Added the ability to import schedules from a CSV file.
- Added new imports and exports in support of the new release of Diamond Scheduler version 7. The LeagueWorks software now supports importing and exporting from/to Diamond Scheduler version 7.

Build 435 - 9/14/2014
Changes in Build 435
- Added an option on the Player Registration window to automatically assign players to their respective divisions by age or grade. Under the Tools menu on the Player Registration window, there are options to assign players to divisions. Please note, for the program to be able to assign players to their proper division, the program must be able to select one division based on age or grade, whichever is selected. So, the ages between divisions or the grades between divisions cannot be overlapping when the division is defined on the Divisions, Teams, and Fields window. Otherwise, the program will not be able to select a single division and will not be able to assign the player to a division.

This option is available only if the "Division Gender" on the Division window is set to "Male & Female" for the Division. If this option is selected, the Automated Team/Draft will balance the teams by gender by attempting to place the same number of male and female players on each team.

Build 367 - 11/13/2005

A request was made to add the Player Height to more reports. The player height has now been added to several of the Player Reports and also to the Team Reports, where applicable.

LeagueWorks will now accept either "Parent #2 Cell Phone" or "Parent #2 Cell Phone" (an extra space between Parent and #).

Build 289 - 5/3/2002
Changes in Build 289
Added an Automatic Player/Team Assignment feature. Players can now be placed on teams automatically. LeagueWorks attempts to balance the teams as much as possible based on Player Age and Player Ability Ratings. Please see the FAQ on how the Players are assigned to teams for more information.
Added additional checks in Player and Volunteer Merge routines. With the previous Player and Volunteer merge routines it was possible that duplicate players would be added to the database. For the Player, LeagueWorks uses the Player First Name, Last Name, and Birth Date to match records (the Volunteer routine uses the Volunteer First Name, Last Name, and Home Phone Number). Previously, if a Player's Birth Date was changed, then merged into the local database, LeagueWorks would not find a match in the local database because the Birth Date had changed. So, LeagueWorks would add a new record to the local database that would be a duplicate, only with a different Birth Date (and the same happened on the Volunteers if the Home Phone Number was changed). Now, LeagueWorks performs an additional check so that if a Player Birth Date or Volunteer Home Phone Number changes, duplicate records will not be added to the local database. Instead, the existing record will be updated properly.
Renamed the Balance/Refund Due reports to "Fee Reports" and added a new Sponsor Fee Report. This report lists the Sponsors, Contact Names and Phone Numbers, Amount Pledged, Amount Paid, Balance/Refund Due, and the Sponsor comments.
Added a new Team Schedule with Roster Report. This report displays the Team Schedule and Roster Names on the report. For security purposes (if the report is to be posted on a website), the Roster Names only include the Players Name.
Increased the size of the fonts on the Mailing Labels.
Fixed a bug in the Player Age Calculation. This problem only occurred for users in Canada or locales where the standard date format is dd/mm/yy (day/month/year). The Player Age calculation now takes into account different date formats.
Fixed a bug in the Mailing Label by Age report where deleted player records were being displayed on the mailing labels. The mailing labels now do not include any records that are marked as deleted.
Fixed a bug in the Player Email Reports where duplicate email addresses were being displayed where they should not have been.
Build 284 - 3/26/2002

Build 283 - 3/24/2002
Changes in Build 283
Added new report - "Team Coach List/Player Count" under the Divisions report selection. This report lists each teams coaches within each Division and also the number of players that are currently assigned to the team. The report also displays the number of players within each Division that are not currently assigned to a team.
Added New Report - "Team Schedule with Roster" under the Schedules report selection. This report shows each teams schedule and also lists that players on each team. This is a good report that can be posted directly to a website as the roster only displays the players name - no other personal information is displayed.
Based on user requests, the database path is no longer displayed on each windows title bar. The database path is displayed on the Startup Window only. The database path can be set in the Program Preferences window under the Database Path tab.
Fixed a problem that was reported with the Schedule reports. In certain instances, games that had been deleted on the game schedule were being displayed on the schedule reports. This only occurred if games were manually deleted from the game schedule within LeagueWorks. The problem did not occur if a game schedule was imported from Diamond Scheduler.
Fixed a problem on the Divisions Standings window where deleted teams were being displayed in the Division Standings.
Fixed a problem on the Uniform Report "Pants/Shirts Summary by Division" where deleted Divisions were being displayed on the report.
Build 280 - 2/28/2002
Changes in Build 280
A problem was reported with the Volunteer merge. Occasionally, the Date Stamp and Time Stamp on the records was not being compared properly. The problem has now been fixed and all volunteer records are merged properly.
Added a new Player by Division report. The report is the Player by Division (Sorted by Team) report. This report is similar to the Player by Division report, except the Players are sorted first by Division, then by team, then by player name within each team, rather than the Player by Division report which sorts by Player Name within each Division.
Added many new Equipment Reports. The reports include Equipment Item and Equipment Inventory Lists (sorted by Equipment Item and sorted by Vendor), and also Equipment Assignment reports. The Equipment Assignment Reports include Assignment to Player, Assignment to Volunteer, Assignment to Division, and Assignment to Team. The Equipment Assignment to Division and Equipment Assignment to Team reports denote equipment that is assigned to a Division or Team -- not necessarily assigned to a single person.
Added a Sort by Zip/Postal code capability to the Mailing label reports. By checking the Sort by Zip/Postal Code check box on the Mailing Label reports, the output will be sorted first on Zip/Postal Code, and second on Player/Volunteer/Sponsor name (depending on the mailing labels being generated).
Fixed a reported problem pertaining to the Volunteer Position requests. The problem was that some Volunteers were being associated with the wrong players. The problem was traced to the Merge process and has now been fixed. Please note, this problem only pertains to those users that have associated Volunteers with Players and have also used the Merge process to merge multiple databases. If the Merge process has not been used, then your data has not been affected by the problem.
A new item has been added to the Player Registration window, under the Data menu to validate the Volunteer/Player assignments because of the previous bug. The new selection is to "Validate Volunteer Assignments" and will Validate the Volunteers that have been associated with a Player. Please note, this option will delete any Player/Volunteer associations if they cannot be matched properly in the database, so it is possible that some Player/Volunteer associations could be deleted. This option is in response to the bug found in number 4, so if you have not used the Merge process, your data has not been affected by the bug and this option will NOT delete any Player/Volunteer associations.
Fixed a reported problem where the merge process displayed an error when trying to merge the Volunteer Team Assignments. The problem was the merge was inadvertently trying to add a duplicate record and was displaying an error message. The problem has now been fixed and all Volunteer Team Assignments will merge properly. This problem was only reported by one user, and does not corrupt any data. So, anyone that has used the merge process and has not seen an error message when the Merge process performs the Team Volunteer Merge is not affected by this problem.
Previously, the database path was displayed at the top of every window. Now, per request, the database path is only displayed on the Startup window. The other windows now display their title and function.
We have received many more requests for report changes and they are in the works, please watch for more updates coming soon.
Build 271 - 2/1/2002
Changes in Build 271
Added the ability to change a players team directly on the Player Registration window. This enables easy player movement from team to team. This will also save time during team assignments.
Fixed a problem on installation where some users were receiving an "OLE files are in use. Please Reboot..." message, and when the computer was rebooted, the install would loop into the same error message. The installation software has been upgraded and all LeagueWorks installations have been verified to work on all versions of Windows.
Build 269 - 12/26/2001
Changes in Build 269
Fixed a problem where some header fields were not following through on all reports. For example, on some reports, if both the Division Name and Team Name were being displayed on the report, sometimes the Division Name would not be repeated on all pages of the report. This has been fixed - the Division Name is now displayed on every page.
Added a "View Order" to the Uniform (Pants and Shirts field) on the Uniform tab of the Category Setup window. This allows a user configurable sort order for all of the Uniform Sizes displayed on the Player Registration window, Category Setup window, and Reports. What was the problem? If Uniform Sizes were added or deleted from the Uniform Lists, the order in which the sizes were displayed on the windows and reports was not the order in which they should have been displayed (for example, from smallest to largest). This is now user configurable so the Uniform Sizes are displayed in the order desired.
Added new Address and Contact Information to the School Names tab of the Category Setup window.
Added new School Reports. There are now several new School reports that can be generated from School Information and Player Information.
Added the user configurable sort order to the Player Registration forms. The Player Registration Forms now use the "View Order" set on the Uniform Sizes tab of the Category Setup window. Previously, the Uniform sizes were not configurable on the Registration forms. Now, the Uniform Sizes on the Registration Forms are driven by the data values in the database. Users can now add and delete Uniform Sizes and set the order in which they are to be displayed on the Registration Forms.
Added counts on many of the reports. For example, the Team Roster report now displays a Player Count at the end of each teams report, the Schedule Reports now display a count of the number of games scheduled on each of the reports, and the School reports now display a count of the number of players for each school.
Added a new Default Area Code for Player and Volunteer Registrations.
Added Defaults to the Volunteer Registration. The Defaults now apply when adding a new Volunteer record.
Added an Unassigned Player report that is sorted by School Name.
Fixed a problem on the Unassigned Player Reports where the report was only displaying Player Names if they had been assigned to a Division. Now the report also displays the Players that are marked Active and not assigned to a Division.
Added two new report output formats. Reports can now be output in a Text format and a TIFF Image format in addition to the Print, Print Preview, PDF, RTF, HTML, and Excel formats.
Renamed the Unassigned Player report to "Players Not Assigned to a Team".
Build 264 - 12/2/2001
Changes in Build 264
Added a Program Preferences button to the main Startup window. Now the Registration information, Program Defaults, Custom Field Labels, and Database Path are easily accessible from the Startup window.
Enhanced the Backup and Restore functionality to make both functions more robust.
Changes in Build 260
Fixed a problem in the merge process where the merge would hang for an indefinite period of time.
Added a new Area Code Default for Player and Volunteer registrations.
The Defaults now apply when adding a New Volunteer record.
Changes in Build 259
Fixed a problem that occurred when a Parent was marked as a volunteer on the Player Registration window and a Work Phone number was not entered. The popup Volunteer Registration window was displaying an error.
Changes in Build 258
Added a feature to allow the selection of the Date Format. LeagueWorks now allows the selection of the format for all dates on forms and reports. The Date Format can be found on the Program Preferences screen.
Added a feature to select the location of the LeagueWorks data file. You can now select the location of your data file on the Program Preferences screen. This will allow you to open archived backups, or if LeagueWorks is being used on a network, it will allow you to select the location of the data file on a network server.
Modified the heading on each window so the location of the current working data file is displayed at the top of the window.
Added Work and Mobile phone numbers to the Parents information on the Player Registration window.
Added the Parents Work and Mobile phone numbers to various reports within LeagueWorks.
Added enhanced data integrity rules when renaming and adding new Players and Volunteers. Now, if a players name and/or birth date is changed, LeagueWorks provides better controls on how you would like to handle the change. The same procedures were added to a change in the Volunteer Name and/or Home Phone Number.
Changes in Build 251
Many changes in the Venue (formerly Fields area). Changed the all Windows to read Venue instead of Field.
Fixed a problem where the Venue Contact Phone Area Code field was not being saved properly.
Changes in Build 246
A problem was found where if a Team was deleted from a Division, then a new Team was added with the same name (and in the same Division), a duplicate Team record was being created. The update fixes the problem so that if a deleted Team record (with the same Team Name and within the same Division) is found, then the deleted record is undeleted and updated with the new information.
