Taking a league between secretary and center

Transporting a league between a bowling center and league secretary is a very simple process, with a minor amount of care necessary to assure proper handling.

The first thing that is mandatory is that the center and league secretary must be on the same major version.  As an example, if the center has BLS-2017 and the secretary has BLS-2016, then the league data can not go back and forth.  Data can only be upgraded, not downgraded.

The other thing that occasionally is required is that both the center and secretary need to be at least at a similar version number.  Example would be if there was a bug fix that affected the data and was fixed in 29.03.01, then it would be important that both the center and secretary be at least at 29.03.01 or newer.

 

To go from league secretary to center

League Secretary will do the following after the week has been prepared:

  1. From within the league, go to UTILITIES > BACKUP LEAGUE and save the backup on a USB Flash Drive.
  2. If emailing the league to the center, use your Email program and attach the backup file to the email to send to the center. Otherwise take the flash drive to the center.


Center would do the following after receiving the backup file.

  1. Backup the league if it already is on their BLS as a precaution. UTILITIES > BACKUP LEAGUE
  2. Delete the league in BLS so that data files are not mixed together. UTILITIES > DELETE LEAGUE
  3. Restore League from the Secretary Backup. UTILITIES > RESTORE LEAGUE

 

The same process can be done when going from center to league secretary.
