we have added ical feeds from 2 leagues into our site (Website settings -> iCal Feeds). For example
http://www.iwsl.com/icalsched.php?tea_id=95306&ical=Y
webcal://yssl.org/icalsched.php?ical=Y&tea_id=98498

All the calendar items are showing up as events but they are games.

How can we set these feeds to show up as games?

thanks

Hello maygrait -

Thanks for your question. Unfortunately when you import an iCal feed, calendar items are considered "events" to the SportsEngine platform because there is no way within the iCal feed to specify an opponent or event type (ie "game-type event").

If you need to bulk load multiple games, you can do so by going to Website Settings > Schedule Upload. This will allow you to load multiple games via CSV. Here's a help article that explains how: https://sportngin.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/619699

Please let me know if you have any additional questions!

The problem with uploading via CSV is that any changes require another manual update. I'm using iCal because I'd like the listings in SE to auto-update when the source updates.

It would be nice if when you add an iCal feed, you could specify the type, whether it's Event or Game, etc.

Understood, but it's an iCal limitation (it doesn't support things like opponents etc).

Same reason games that are exported from SportsEngine via iCal feed look just like events on your calendar app you're importing in to.
