Period scores are the scores (ie. goals, behinds or points) that teams have scored in a period (ie. quarter or half). Period scores provide additional match information for participants and followers to see which team was leading during a game.
As an association administrator, you can set whether to display scores as:
- By Period: Total points scored per period; or
- End of Period: Progressive game scores at the end of each period.
The Period scores grade setting allows an administrator to:
- Automatically populate period scores if games were scored using electronic scoring and if period scores were enabled.
- Enter period scores captured from a game which will automatically populate the end of period scores in the admin portal.
- Enable period scores to be entered during overtime.
Please note that period scores are linked to period type and overtime settings. Therefore, any changes to these settings will impact what is displayed for period scores. If the period type is changed during a season from quarters to halves (or vice versa) after games have already been finalised, then these games period scores will display as blank scores. Additionally, if overtime has been turned off, overtime scores will not display on the period scores, even if a game has been finalised that had an overtime score.
Enabling Period Scores
Enabling period scores will display period scores on the following screens: Game Details page; electronic scoring; and, on game centres on the public website. Period scores can be turned on at the competition or specific grade level. To enable the Period scores, select "Competition" from main menu item, and then the relevant competition and season tile, and then the Grades tab. From here, select the grade, then the Settings tab, and the Game sub-tab. Scroll down to the Period scores, toggle the setting on, and select the Period Score type that you would like to apply to the grade. Click Update & Save button to apply the changes.
The Period scores setting can be activated at any point, regardless of the game status (upcoming, in-progress, pending, or finalised).
If Period scores are enabled, and an administrator modifies the period type from quarters to halves (or vice versa), an information box will appear, as depicted below, notifying that finalised games will be affected.
Period Scores- Game Details
Activating period scores will showcase the period scores on the game details page, providing administrators with the option to input the scores manually or have them populated through electronic scoring.
In the below example, the "Period scores" setting has been configured to "By Period." Consequently, scores are being populated not just at the end of the quarter but also during the quarter when the game is being live-scored through E-Scoring.
Period scores - Game Centre Page
Games scored with the "Period scores" setting enabled will result in scores being displayed for every period on the public PlayHQ page of the organisation. In the example below, the "Period scores" setting has been configured to "By Period." Scores keep updating as the match progresses.
