  2. Create a Track and Field preset

    Currently, there's nothing in wordpress that a track team could use to track their individual track meets, meet events, and individual stats without a lot of customization and configuration.

    Sportspress has the ideal setup, but requires a alot of customization for track and field.

  3. Automatic Player list and Statistics

    Hello,

    Player List:

    There really should be a way that when u create a club/team it also creates automatically a player list for that club/team and select that playerlist automatically.

    Player Statistics

    When u add a player to a club/team and both the club and the player are for example in 'season 1' that it automatically change the Statistics 'club' column to that team/club

  4. Auto generate event / fixtures without importing

    We run a tournament and use 32 league table of 4 teams in each as a round robin. They each play each other, that's a total of 196 events.

    It's long winded to manually add them, and the importer isn't any better.

    Surely once we created a league, added the leagues to each team member, SPP could auto-generate the events/fixtures, ready for us to input the results.

    It seems like an obvious piece of core functionality that is missing.

  5. Players of the Week

    I want the date option to be added to player lists to create a player of the week list. If the date was incorporated into the player list menu, a formula could be created to rank players similar to fantasy sports. This could be based on previous game or previous week. Similar to event lists.

    Hockey Players of the Week=2*G+A+15*SO

    Cheers

  6. Greater control over when to use Club name abbreviations or full name

    It would great to have more control over when club abbreviations are used. For example, I'd like to use abbreviations on the Scoreboard but keep full club names on my Tables.

  7. Frontend Submit Team Roster

    I love the new frontend submit results option for team managers. It would be nice if teams could also submit their roster for the game as well. This could then be reviewed and approved by an admin, just as it does for results.

  8. Allow bulk updates/CSV uploads for player performance stats in events

    When working with sportspress to log results of an event, we need a way to enter in player performance stats in bulk.

    For some sports this is easily manageable to do it player by player, but certain sports with large rosters becomes a chore.

    For example, following an American Football game we have stats for near 50 players to log (nearer 100 if logging stats for opponents)

    At the moment, the only option is the CSV event importer but this is for new events only and doesn't allow you to add performance stats for events which have been played

  9. Conditional Player Lists

    When creating a player list, leave a place to put in criteria that the player must reach to be on this list.
    So for example if you're making a League Leaders list, you only want it to show the players that have played in greater than 'x' number of games, or had 'x' of At Bats per game.
    This is important to have because you get people who have 1 at bat and get 1 hit so their avg. is 1.000 and they always lead the list, rather than someone who is 25 for 50. .500

  10. Player attendance confirmation

    We use Sportspress for our team, not for a league, and we have to confirm who will be coming to the game. We usually send out an email and have people confirm if they are in or out in our forums.

    Would be a great feature to have a dedicated page that would link to the matches entered in Sportspress where players could go in an simply checkmark "in" or "out" for any particular game. This page would have to be protected as to avoid outsiders from going in and entering a checkmark and should only be allowed to be…

  12. Automatic recurring events.

    With this update you can put for example training sessions on every monday and wednesday till the end of year. How cool is that!! Also it would be nice if there's a "training session" mode in the event manager.

  13. Add pitching stats to baseball!

    Baseball has batting stats, but no pitching stats. I can do it myself, but it would be awesome if those were integrated with the plugin itself.

  14. Manage tournament brackets

    There are some types of events where you can't forecast the competitors such as a single elimination tournament. You may know the first set of competitors, but after the first round of games you can't predict who a team will play against next.
    Also, some leagues use a ranking system to identify who the next competitor would be, which is dependent on the previous match results. This would fairly assign competitors to a match so that a #2 ranked competitor wouldn't be matched against a #30 ranked competitor for example.

  15. Record Book (most assist in a game, most steals in a game, etc.)

    It would be nice to have a widget that tracks the highest value that was entered for events. For example if you are playing a basketball game you can track the most rebounds in a single game or most individual points scored by a player or most individual blocks in a game, etc

  16. Export!

    We can import matches, why can't we export them so we can:

    Use offline in a spreadsheet for detailed analysis

    Share matches with another web site running Sportspress, so they don't have to enter everything by hand.

  17. Show stats by position

    Right now, if you are only a Quarterback, viewing the profile will show all passing, rushing, receiving, and special teams stats. It would be better if viewing the QB profile ONLY showed registered stats.

    For example, ONLY show stats for passing attempts and rushing attempts when viewing the QB profile. If the QB happens to have a reception for a game, the profile will then reflect all passing attempts, rushing attempts, and now receptions.

    It would save a lot of whitespace and would allow visitors to only see what is most important: registered stats and not ALL POSSIBLE stats that…

  18. Notify admins when users submit event results for approval.

    I have set up events pages to allow for users to report the results for approval on the front end. This is useful as it cuts down the admin we have to do. However, there is no notification that results have submitted, you have to check each event to approve the submissions. This this very impractical, especially as the number of events increases.

  19. boxscore import (csv?)

    It would be such a great addition if we could import those big and time consuming box score/player statistics instead of having to type them in for each player. The most easiest and universal format would be a csv with named columns. Most programs for collecting stats should be able to export csv-files.
