I'm unable to replicate that standings are not going out in the email attachment for the Pro or A/S version. As mentioned earlier, I did a test league with 11 different people and email addresses and they all went out. I used an outlook email address for a person and a gmail address for a person. All received the test version. So the only thing I can think of is that there is a limitation with your Email Service Provider. They may be considering sending out bulk emails with attachments as a virus or spam.
My last reasoning is to add to what Frank, Dennis and Brendan explain the reasoning for using the LeagueSecretary.com service. There is additional benefits, such as your bowlers being able to compete nationally in Action Bowling tournaments by Rolltech, using the scores bowled in league. It also allows bowlers to opt out of receiving announcements about league standings, without you needing to be involved. Bowlers can also look at their bowler histories online as well.
As Frank mentioned, having an offsite backup is a big bonus. We've lost track of the number of times we've had to assist a league secretary or bowling center that had a computer disaster and lost all their data. While many of our customers understand the value and reasoning behind making league backups and do it each week to a USB drive, we still have a number of customers who still don't understand that Murphy is a bowler and that he knows exactly the wrong time to mess up your computer. Computers CAN have problems. I've had a couple customers actually re-format their hard drive, by accident, not thinking about the fact that they weren't making league backups and now their data is gone. So by uploading to LeagueSecretary.com each week, it's an "out of sight, out of mind" thing where league backups are going to the cloud doing something you would be doing each week.
Another thing Frank mentioned has been very beneficial. Recruitment. We've had conversations with many secretaries and centers mentioning that they received several new customers who moved to the area and used LeagueSecretary.com to find leagues and centers in their area. I don't know about you, but gaining bowlers "is a good thing" as Martha puts it.
