The purpose of this dialog is to inform the user that
under normal circumstances only one master schedule should be created.
What is a Master Schedule?
In this program, the master schedule is where all the games from the season,
practice, and tournament schedules are stored. The master schedule makes sure
two games aren't being scheduled at the same time at the same field, and the
teams aren't double-booked. Think of the master schedule as the Game Database.
Games can only see games in the same master schedule (Game Database). If
you create more than one master schedule, then the games in the first master
schedule have no idea that the games in second master schedule exist.
When should I create a new Master Schedule?
There are some circumstances when creating multiple master schedules is
Different versions of the same schedule
This is the main reason why we added the ability to create multiple master
schedules. You can create multiple season schedules and vary some of the
scheduling parameters to see which produced the best results. Then, you can
determine which one you like best (or have the board of directors choose which
one they like best), and delete the others.
Creating multiple master schedules makes sense if your league or organization
is segregated by region, and one group of teams plays independently from
another group of teams, and each group of teams play on different fields (no
fields are shared between the groups). The benefit is the scheduling process
will be faster since the scheduler will have fewer games it needs to sort
through when determining if the given teams and field are available.
