Include standings point override in mass load of schedules

Currently the only way to assign initial standings points overrides is to edit every game one by one. For leagues that preload "spirit of the game" points on every game that can be deducted as needed, it is tedious to edit every single game after loading the schedule. It would be very helpful to be able to preload the initial standings points when mass loading the schedule from a template.

    The help article linked is not available without a login. Is it that purting, say, a 1 in the field Points_Win will add 1 override point in case of a win?

    Sorry about that Todd. I've updated the URL to the public face one. Here it is also http://help.sportngin.com/customer/portal/articles/619699

    Regarding your example, if you put 1 in the Points_Win that would the total that would be accrued for that game. If you want to add an addition point, then it would be the total that the game is normally worth plus the additional point. So if a regular game is worth 2 points, but this game in particular would be worth 3 then you would put there in the Points_Win field

    Thank you for the reply and the link.  I've looked at the latest functionality again, and I think I just misstated the request. Now it is possible to override points in ways not possible before (thank you), but what I was thinking of and still think is needed is to mass load the standings point override fields "Home Team Extra Points" and "Away Team Extra Points" so that you can assign an extra point that goes on top of whatever gets normally calculated in a scenario like when in rugby you use the Standings Type of "Rugby Union with Bonus Points" where the number of points awarded is variable based on results, and a single extra point should be added to whatever calculated amount is awarded.  Is that already possible? The help articles don't answer that.
