Ability to name ICAL feeds

Under Website Settings - ICAL Feeds, adding an ICAL creates a new link but automatically generates a name. Unfortunately many of the names are identical and aren't easy to identify. I'd suggest a way to change the Name or add a field that permits the user to create a manual label for each feed. (You can call it "Label" or "Alias" or "Description".)

 

We are integrating a team's league games from other sites (including other SportsEngine sites) by using the ICAL from the League site.

    This is an integral part of our school using the site as our calendars must be up to date.  Parents will not want to go to different sites to confirm schedules.

    ICAL Feeds are so  important for our coaches and parents to get the most up dated information as we make changes. It would also help us to rename  the feed, so we know at a glance which sports need schedule up dates. The reason we purchased SportsNgin was for convenience of your system and to support our sports teams. We need a quicker response time for schedules!

    This may be related to the idea that I just put in.  The generated event title is team name - event.

    When the team name is long-ish  it is the only thing displayed and the actual event is truncated because the screen can only display so many characters on one line.    I suggested using the team short name for the ical feed rather than the full team name.
