We're happy to add a few new features for this year's pool formats. You can turn theses on or off, depending on how you want to run your pool.
No Login Required
If you run a pool where you don't expect people to login and enter their picks, checking standings, etc. then you'll want this option. You will get a publicly-accessibile address that people can follow along with for standings and pool news. You will have to enter everyone's pick sheets, as manager. This is available for Confidence Ranking and Straight Up Pick 'Em formats.
Number of Games
You can enter the number of games that your pool members will have to pick each week, instead of the full sheet. This can speed up the entry of sheets and might attact more people to join your pool. This is available for the Straight Up Pick 'Em format.
Missed Picked Sheets
There is now an option to have pick sheets created (after your pool deadline) for memberes that have missed the deadline. You can select to auto-pick the home, away, favorite, or underdog teams. Note that this will cancel out any penalites that you may have set for your pool, for missed sheets. For Confidence pools, the confidence value will start at 1 for the earliest game, and increment by one from there (ie. Monday game would be worth 16). This is available for Confidence and Straight Up formats.
We hope that you enjoy these new features! Please let us know if there's anything else that you would like to see added.
