Before you can Import Games from Sports Engine you'll need to setup your integration with the following steps.
You'll need to start by connecting your Sports Engine user account. This can be done by an organization administrator on your System Settings page using the Synchronize tab.
Next, you'll need to choose the Connect button to start the Sports Engine connection process.
Login to your Sports Engine account and Accept the connection permissions
Your Sports Engine account should now be connected. You shouldn't need to do this step again unless for some reason your account becomes disconnected. The connection should remain constant unless you manually disconnect the account.
Once connected, you'll need to Import Teams before you can import any game information. To do this head to Administrative Forms >> Add/Edit/Remove Teams and select the Import from Sports Engine option in the top toolbar.
Once opened, you'll need to select:
- Organization to Import from
This list is populated based on the permissions you have on your Sports Engine account. If an organization is missing, you'll need to have that organization added to your Sports Engine account.
- What to import
You should select Teams. It is not necessary to import Leagues or Game Codes as the Team import will do this for you. Only advanced users should utilize the other import types.
- Select the Teams to Import
This will add these teams and their related leagues and game codes to your system.
You can perform this import as many times as you'd like. The items will not be duplicated. If a team name has changed, for example, running this import a second time will simply update the tea name and will not create a duplicate team.
Once teams have been imported, you may now Import Games from the Sports Engine platform.
