Combine Standings for Crossover Pools

When scheduling pools as crossover games it would be desirable to have the two pools crossing over combined for standings.

creating one big pool would require manual scheduling of the crossover bracket.

    Hi Mark,

    When you use the standings element in Sitebuilder you'll be able to see "pool standings" and "overall standings". Sounds like the overall standings is what you are asking for. Here's an example:

    FYI, it also works this way in the tourney mobile app.

    Jim - no it does not exist for all situations.  I will give you the common tournament format we use in Massachusetts Hockey.

     

    12 Teams divided in to 4 pools of 3 (Pools A, B, C and D)

    Each team plays three round robin games in a crossover fashion.

    Pool A plays versus Pool B

    Pool C plays versus Pool D

    So I can get Pool Standings (Groups of 3) or Overall Standings (Groups of 12). What I need is Crossover Group Standings (Groups of 6 A+B in one group of 6 and C+D in another group of 6)

    In this format we advance the top 4 teams out of the combined groups of 6 to quarterfinals

    A/B #1 vs. C/D #4

    C/D #2 vs. A/B #3

    C/D #1 vs. A/B #4

    A/B #2 vs. C/D #3

    While an overall standings does exist it does not cover a situation like this.  

    Thanks,
