Jack - thought I'd registered for tonight but had no link through. I've registered now for next Tuesday instead - has that come through at your end? Cheers, Andy
Hi Jack, I've had to drop out of tonight's event but have re-booked for next Tuesday.
Apologies for any inconvenience.
No worries - look forward to seeing you then.
I am sure that I registered for tonight's meeting but I have not received a link yet. Please could you have a look if you read this in time.
I missed the courses unfortunately and would like to know if you are running any more?

Hi guys - I watched through the video but I didn't see anything that explained how players themselves can register with Whole Game.
To comply with the compulsory registration, I would need to enter about 60 players details into the system, which does not sound like a lot of fun.
How can they register their own details and join our club?
Players cannot register themselves at the moment via. Whole Game System although this is being explored for a future platform. At the moment, club officials would need to add their players to the system.
The process for adding players should only take 30-40 seconds per player. Once they are added you do not have to add them again to the system next season.
You'll then just need to do your ID Checks if it is a league requirement and assign to team/gain consent and submit to league all of which can be done on bulk by multi-selecting. Hopefully you should be able to do this in under an hour.
Thanks Jack but this assumes you already have all of their data to hand.
Could you let me know if/when it will be compulsory for leagues to use Whole Game / Full Time? One of the benefits of the Play Cricket site is that you can view all of your own historic player records and that's partially true of Full Time but it would be awesome if all competitions were included.
The FA is making it mandatory from 2021/22, however leagues can bring this in earlier if they wish to. This will greatly improve the recording of statistics for Integrated leagues as it allows us to capture more detailed stats and retain them within Full-Time and Matchday.
