  2. Manage Eligibility (Optional) – DartConnect’s “Eligibility” tool helps you quickly identify which teams/players are allowed to play based on your league’s participation requirements.
  3. Confirm Eligible Teams/Players – Check and confirm the teams/players that qualify for Post Season playoffs.

  5. Run Optional Venue Report  (For Match Scheduler Option Only) – Identify and manage match schedule conflicts
  6. Send Player Notifications – Send email notifications to players with Post Season information, including an option for a custom message with your league’s specific details and announcements.
