This tool allows verified League Administrators to upload their entire league's schedule for simple import and use by the teams in your league.
Not only is this a serious time-saver for all the team managers in your league, but it will also allow you to know that your team's are able to import their schedules to their RosterBot account with ease.
Below you will find the what RosterBot needs in order to host your schedule and make it available for your team's to import to their team's account.
1. Verify Your League Administrator Account
You will first need to access the new My Leagues tab which has been added to your Navigation bar.
You will then need to provide us with your league's information. A RosterBot representative will review your application and respond within 2 business days. The more information included and verifiable on a website, the quicker verification can occur.
You should also expect a RosterBot representative to contact you via your email address or a phone call during this time.
2. Find your League's Tab
After your League Administrator account has been verified by RosterBot, you will find it has a sub-tab under the My Leagues tab.
Clicking on this tab will take you to where you can upload your league's schedule.
3. Upload Your League Schedule
RosterBot uploads your schedule using a CSV importer.
The upload schedule feature does its best to grab as much information as we can. You can increase success by using the precise format of the League Schedule Template.
Once the league's schedule has been uploaded to RosterBot, each of your teams will be able to import their events into their RosterBot team account with just click.
All events added will be shown whether you have uploaded them before or not. This means you may need to delete old schedules if you are intending to replace or edit them. Schedule names must be unique. No overwrites are permitted.
Schedules MUST be exported from Excel or Numbers into CSV (Comma Separated Value) file formats to successfully import!
IMPORTANT: Match the formatting exactly from the Template provided. What might seem like a small change like, date formatting or leaving a cell empty can be enough to cause the import to not work.
A successful import will provide the imported schedule like below:
4. Inform Your Teams
You will then want to let the teams in your league know they have a schedule that is ready to be imported in their RosterBot 'Create Event' page.
From the 'Import Events' page, they will want to select the correct information from the drop-down options to find your league and then their team. Their schedule will be previewed for them.
Lastly, they will need to click 'IMPORT' and their schedule will be created for them!
