New Admin Option: Merge Teams
« on: October 01, 2007, 01:38:39 AM »
There is a new option available on the "Edit BASE Team Names" page (accessible from the Maintain Season/Edit Team Names area within the Admin portion of the system).

This option will allow you to merge the history of two franchises in your MFL History league (if, for example, you made a mapping mistake).

If you go to this screen, you will now see two additional columns of radio buttons, Merge Team #1 and Merge Team #2.

BE CAREFUL WITH THIS OPTION! There is no way to reverse an incorrect merge, so I repeat, use this feature carefully.

A few checks ARE performed before any merge activity:
1. You have to pick two different teams
2. You cannot merge two teams that BOTH have history in the same season. (for example, if Team A has history in 2004 and 2006 and Team B has history in 2005, 2006 and 2007, you would not be able to merge them -- because they both existed in 2006)

Also, since I had to pick one, Merge Team #2 becomes the new BASE team (in effect, you are merging the data FROM Merge Team #1 INTO Merge Team #2)

If you have any questions or issues with this feature, please post them in the Support section!
