Please note - this is only an option if your Player Import file contains BOTH Player Number and Player Pool. If you do not pre-assign player numbers, please follow Importing Players from a CSV File and Checking in Registered Players. If you plan to assign player evaluation groups, this will also need to be done in your CSV file prior to importing players.TeamGenius can auto-assign player numbers during the import if selected.
