What Happens When I Change a Duty Template?

Great question. When you make a change to a Duty Template, we need to roll that change out across all the future games. So the first big rule is that we don't change anything on old games. We can't change the past - so we don't apply changes to old games - just to future ones.

Duty Name Changes

We will apply the change of the duty name to all future games. So if you change 'Snacks' to 'Snacks (apples)' in the duty template, then we will go through and find all the duties in the future that contain the title 'Snacks' and we'll change them to 'Snacks (apples)'. That seems pretty obvious.

Exception: If you've directly modified the name on the Duty in future games - then we can't find the Duty - we can't change it. So if you were to change the name of the duty on one particular game to 'Snacks (oranges)' - then it wouldn't be updated to 'Snacks (apples)'.

Removing a Duty

This is similar to the name change scenario. If you take away a duty called 'Umpiring' from the Duty Template - then we'll remove Umpiring from all the future games. 

Exception: If you've directly modified the name on the Duty in future games - then we can't find it to remove it.
