Manually adding schedule events

This article explains how team and organization administrators can manually add individual games or events directly to the Schedule tab. This method is best for those that love getting physical with their data entry and are immune to carpal tunnel, prefer manual entry, or just need to add a single game or event here and there. 

This scheduling method is best suited for admins preferring hands-on data entry, allowing one-off or event-specific scheduling, and external opponent inclusion.
