- Advanced re-scheduling. Sometimes you want to move a match to a timeslot where you have no more courts available. Now it is possible to see if some matches in that timeslot can be swapped with the current match, or moved to another timeslot so you can still schedule the current match at the desired timeslot.
In a cell where you see a number (1 in this example) there is a match available to swap with.
You can double-click the cell which will bring you on the secondary screen. There you can see the details of the available swap-options.
Select the desired match and click the Switch-button. You will see a confirmation of the 2 actions to be performed at the same time. Below you see an example where 2 matches are swapped.
