The Lineup Charts are an important tool, very useful for a number of reasons:
1) Most importantly, it will let our logging team know who played in the game, and where. If footage is blurry, zoomed out, or panning quickly, it will allow our loggers to better pinpoint the players. This is ESPECIALLY important for Advanced Soccer breakdowns uploaded with only one angle of footage.
2) Along with greater accuracy in player tagging, it will also increase efficiency for our loggers and help get your breakdown back to you more quickly.
3) When assigning an 'Athlete Roster'-type custom tag, you won't need to scroll through your entire active roster to designate a player for the tag; the active players in the match will show.
4) If an athlete participates who is not a part of your permanent roster, or if an athlete changes jersey numbers for the game, this is a way to track that and add those game stats to the cumulative totals of the athlete for the season.
When you upload your game, you'll be presented with a 'Who played in the game?' box. Simply click 'Add Athlete' to get started.
When you do, the list of active athletes currently on your roster (or your opponent's roster) will present itself. Put a check mark in the box to the left of each player who played in the game, and press the 'Add Athlete' button again to add them to the list of participating players.
Drag and drop those players to the position they started the game in.
If you need to change the formation, you can do so by clicking on the 'Apply Formation' dropdown below the team list. If there is a "custom" formation you need to set your athletes in, just drag and drop the red dots around the field and set them in the position(s) you need.
If you need to switch the side of the field the teams are playing on, just click on the 'switch sides' button (intersecting arrows) at the top left corner of the box.
SUBSTITUTIONS / FORMATION CHANGES
As soon as you set your players in their beginning positions, that information will be saved in the chart.
When you need to add a substitution or denote any other formation or roster change, click on the "+" button above the left side of the field diagram to open a time clock, set the clock to the time in the video where the substitution(s) / formation change(s) occurred, and click on the 'Save' button:
The new "In-Game Start Time" you just entered will be displayed in the top box. Now adjust your lineup to show where your players are following the first substitution of your game (add any new players, remove departing players, etc.). The new lineup / formation will save automatically.
Repeat as many times as needed to document the lineup and formation changes in the game.
You can cycle through the lineup change charts you've entered by clicking on the arrows to the right of the 'switch sides button, or by choosing them from the 'In Game Start Time" dropdown box.
To edit a previously created lineup chart, switch to that chart and make the changes needed. The changes will automatically save.
If you need to edit the time of a particular lineup sheet, switch to that sheet and click on the 'pencil' icon. (Don't forget to press 'Save' when finished!)
To delete a particular lineup chart, switch to that sheet, click on the 'pencil' icon, and press the 'x' button in the lower left corner of the box.
To move on to the next part of your upload, click on the 'Next' box in the lower right corner:
TO ADD A PARTICIPATING ATHLETE (OR ATHLETE JERSEY) WHO IS NOT PRESENTLY ON THE ROSTER, click on 'Add Athlete', then the 'Add Athlete Not On Roster' button:
Enter in the athlete info and 'save' it:
With your roster now assembled (you can even designate starters), continue with your lineups!
IF ONE OF YOUR ATHLETES IS WEARING ANOTHER JERSEY NUMBER IN A GAME, simply load that athlete into the 'who is playing' list as normal and click into the 'Jersey' column for the athlete. Change the entry to the new jersey number and 'close' the box. This will not only allow the player to be tagged with their new number, but all the athlete's stats for the game will track along with those already accumulated with their 'usual' / 'original' jersey number:
TO ADD 'WHO IS PLAYING' INFO AFTER A GAME HAS BEEN UPLOADED OR LOGGED, simply click on the 'actions' dropdown (the small box with the upside down triangle in it) to the far right of the playlist title and select the 'who is playing' option there:
