"Pools" are a simple yet powerful feature in Cricket Statz that allow you to filter and combine matches into custom reporting.
How are Pools implemented in Cricket Statz?
Every match and every historical data entry has a free text field called "Pool". This is where you can enter any text as a Pool name to assign this name on a match by match basis. Any Pool name entered then becomes a Pool filter option for reports.
How can I use this?
If you want to combine stats from matches from say two or three divisions then you can do this using a Pool. Go to the matches, enter a common pool name across all of the matches you wish to combine. Then go to reports and the pool name you entered will appear in the Pool drop down filter - select this pool and it will only show results/stats from those matches.
You can do this for historical data as well.
The pool names are not case sensitive, so pool named "Fred" = "FRED" = "fred"
You can have only one pool per match.
All of the matches need to be in the one database. You cannot combine results from other databases.
