Reference Date

Top  Previous  Next

The Reference Date is the date that Football Rankulator uses to calculate win/loss records, standings, rankings, and so on. It is useful when you want to see how the standings looked earlier in the season. For example, if it is late in November and you wish to see what the conference standings were in September, simply set the Reference Date back to a date in September. Setting the Reference Date to a future date has no practical use at this time (but it might in the future).


FBR will keep the Reference Date between August 1 and January 31 of the currently loaded football season.


To bring up the Reference Date dialog, click the reference date button on the toolbar (see Application Workspace), select menu item View | Reference Date, or press <Ctrl>-R.





Note: The Reference Date dialog is a non-modal dialog - you do not have to close it before returning to the application.
