Encountering the "No Linkable Positions" error can perplex schedulers within officiating organizations. This error occurs when attempting to link games together, but the linked games do not have positions with identical names. Understanding the reasons behind this error and implementing the appropriate solutions is essential to successfully link games and streamlining your scheduling process. This support article will delve into the details of the "No Linkable Positions" error, provide an in-depth explanation, and offer step-by-step solutions to help you resolve this issue effectively.
Understanding the "No Linkable Positions" Error
When linking games together within our system, it is crucial to ensure that all games within the link set have positions with the exact same name. This consistency in position naming is required to share positions across all linked games. If even one game within the link set lacks a position with a matching name, the "No Linkable Positions" error will be displayed.
Resolving the "No Linkable Positions" Error
To resolve the "No Linkable Positions" error, you have two viable options: unlink the games and assign them individually or adjust the naming of positions within your officiating organization's system to achieve consistency. Let's explore these solutions further:
Unlink the Games and Assign Individually: If maintaining shared positions is not critical for your scheduling process or if position consistency is not a requirement, you can choose to unlink the games and assign them separately. By doing so, you can proceed with creating assignments without relying on positions to be consistent across linked games.
Adjust Position Naming: If maintaining linked games with shared positions is important, you must ensure that all linked games share at least one position with the exact same name. This may involve adjusting the naming of positions within your officiating organization's system to achieve complete consistency. For example, if one game level has a position named "Referee" and another game level has a position named "Ref," you would need to delete one of them and recreate a new position named "Referee" or "Ref" so that the names match exactly across all linked game types.
By implementing either of these solutions, you will successfully resolve the "No Linkable Positions" error and be able to create assignments for linked games seamlessly.
Understanding the reasons behind the "No Linkable Positions" error and implementing the appropriate solutions is crucial for schedulers within officiating organizations. By ensuring positions have consistent names across all linked games or opting to unlink games and assign them individually, you can resolve this error and maintain a streamlined scheduling process.
