This allows you to customise the Bulletin Name that is given to each Bulletin when a bulletin is auto-generated.

To change the auto generated bulletin name:

  1. Edit the Scorebook, goto Scorebook Settings

  2. Go to Bulletin Settings

  3. Find the "Bulletin Name Template" input

  4. Add your Bulletin Name Template using the Available Variables and Filters

  5. Click Save

If left blank the default Bulletin Name is the current time and date using the following format: 

12:56pm, 05th Mar 2014 

This will be used when the  Bulletin Name Template cannot be compiled or no Bulletin Name Template is set.  

Available Merge Tags

Under the hood a "Scorebook" is known as a "board" and a Bulletin is known as a "release". The merge tags you can use are:

    {{ release.period_start }}

    {{ release.period_end }}

    {{ release.release_time }}

    {{ board.board_timezone }}

Available Filters



Examples of how to use merge tags in your bulletin name template are as follows:

Characters to use when Date Formatting  

You can format exactly how you want the date to look by applying date formatting characters to a merge tag.

For example, "Week {{ release.period_end | date ('W - Y')}}" might translate to "Week 03 - 2014" depending on which week of the year the score period end falls in.
