 **No. of teams promoted** and **No. of teams relegated** is just the default setting. If it differs from division to division you can change this in the individual division settings.

 You will see all your leagues in the list of leagues, along with links to all the divisions that have been created. In addition, there are two icons by each league. The edit icon lets you rename the league if you made a mistake, or change some [[#amend league settings|other settings]]. The copy icon lets you [[#copy league|copy your league]] forward to a new year. You won't want to do this until the end of the season, though. You will see all your leagues in the list of leagues, along with links to all the divisions that have been created.

 **Prevent registration of players in more than one team per division** and **in entire league** are options which kick in when a player gets added to a team, disallowing it if they are already part of another team in that division or in the whole league. Note that this only works during registration - it won't check affiliations retrospectively. **Prevent registration of players in more than one team per division** and **in entire league** are options which kick in when a player gets added to a team, disallowing it if they are already part of another team in that division or in the whole league.

 The edit icon will let you amend the team name if you made a mistake. An additional setting here is the ability to add a VP **adjustment** to the team, which is useful if you need to fine them for some reason. The other icons by the team title allow you to delete, promote or relegate this team. The latter two are more useful for next season, when you've copied the league and need to juggle the teams about between divisions, but if you create a team in the wrong division you can move them about with the thumbs up and thumbs down buttons. The edit icon will let you amend the team name if you made a mistake.

 League organisers always have the same abilities as team captains, but the job of the league organiser becomes much simpler if they can delegate these jobs to their captains. League organisers always have the same abilities as team captains, but the job of the league organiser becomes much simpler if they can delegate these jobs to their captains.

 +Clicking on the link or on the edit match icon will take you to a form where you can enter the result of the match. It will look like this:
 +
 +{{ :​lms:​edit-match.png?​nolink |}}
 +
 +This one should be self-explanatory. You enter the date, the score and then you check the boxes by every player who participated in the match. You then press //Save// and the match data will be recorded. You can always edit the match again later - nothing is set in stone until the end of the season.
  
 +One thing league organisers may sometimes wish to do is to set up all the match dates in advance, which you can do in the same way. The form doesn'​t require that you enter any results or players - you can just add the date and then hit //Save//.
