Default 'Notify Team Now' to Off

Our association found it very cumbersome to have to click NO every single time when prompted with the 'Notify Team Now?' question when scheduling either games or events. The default should be either NO or blank.

We scheduled a season where all the teams were disabled and the whole season itself was inactive and yet because of the YES button to this question being active, all of our season schedule games/events (mistakes and all) were released to all the rostered teams well before we intended to release it. This caused a lot of confusion because some teams had yet to even hear from their coaches. Very frustrating.

    I had the same feedback, glad to hear the experience will be improved. Hopefully the default will be flipped, or at least we will be given that option at the site/team/user level. It is easy to go in a send a reminder if you meant to say yes, but not the other way around. When making a number of edits, having to remember to check that every time in order to avoid spamming our teams is frustrating.
