This week an update was released in FiXi that brings some long awaited functionality that has been requested frequently by our growing user base. The major notable updates in this release are custom scoresheets, team consolidation and edit fixture enhancements. We have also made some updates to the overall visuals of FiXi ensure its compatibility with the latest browsers – both desktop and mobile and keeping up with modern visual design trends. Of course there are also a whole bunch of bugs that have been squashed.
We appreciate all the feedback we receive and we encourage you to keep it coming by logging your suggestions in our uservoice portal – be sure to vote what is important to you.
Until now scoresheets have been defined by FiXi head quarters and custom scoresheets would need to be made upon request and may incurred an additional fee. We are now excited to release the ability for you to draft your own scoresheets using Microsoft Word and OpenXML. The scoresheets can be designed however you like and using dynamic fields FiXi can populate your match data and player information.
For more information on how to make your own scoresheets check out our documentation article.

Edit Fixture Updates
We get so many requests to enhance our fixturing functionality and even though we know FiXi offers the most robust and powerful scheduling algorithm we also know there is always room for improvement.

You can also specify the duration of the individual matches irrelevant of what the default value is that is stored in the division setting. Here are some helpful articles about the new changes:
