When the season is locked for the grade (via the Season settings tab), ladders for that grade cannot be created, edited or deleted.
This allows you to add ladders to the current grade/season. Most grades will have a single ladder, however competitions that use different Match Types can set up extra ladders that can include matches from only certain match types.
Click the Delete icon of the ladder you wish to delete.
The ladder and all points (whether automatically calculated or manually entered) will be deleted and the ladder will not display on public sites.
If only one ladder remains within a grade/season, this cannot be deleted, however it can be made 'not visible' to hide from public site display.
Ladders that have had ladder adjustments entered cannot be deleted. In this case, the adjustments must first be deleted.
Ladders can be copied in bulk from one season to another.
Typically ladders are copied when allocating teams to the new grade/season. However, if this is not done at that point, then ladders can be copied here.
To copy ladders:
From the main ladder management screen it is possible to perform the following actions for each ladder (provided the grade/season is not locked):
When do ladder configuration changes take effect?
If a change is made to anything that affects a ladder's points or percentage, the changes will only take effect from the next time the ladder is calculated, whether this is overnight, or by doing a recalculation via the Ladder Maintenance screen e.g. setting up a new ladder, changing the points scheme of an existing ladder, modifying the points scheme that is in use by one or more ladders, or changing match results.
If a change is made to anything that affects a ladder's display, the changes will take effect immediately e.g. changing the display scheme of an existing ladder, modifying the display scheme that is in use by one or more ladders, setting the public visibility of a ladder.
However one exception here is changing the percentage calculation method (simple mode) or adding a complex calculated field (advanced mode) within a display scheme in that this information displayed in the ladder will not change until the next time the ladder is calculated.
