Custom efficiency and code defaults

VollayStation Pro 1.15 brings better customisability, with the ability to change coding defaults, as well as the way we calculate play efficiency.

Coding defaults

Up until now, when you provided only player number, VS filled all basic codes values in the following manner

*13AH+

This wasn’t a particularly adjustable system as you may have wanted a different skill or hit type. With version 1.15 we bring the option to change those defaults by allowing you to:

  • Change the default skill
  • Adjust hit type and effect for each skill

With this change, you will be able to adjust defaults to better match your scouted games, and get the same information, while typing less.

Defaults can be changed in application settings.

Custom efficiency

As you may know, the general formula for calculating efficiency looks as follows

(winning plays - losing plays) / all plays

Considering the above, it becomes crucial which play effects we define as winning, and which ones as losing. For example we calculate serve efficiency like this:

("#/+" - "=") / all

This sometimes causes a bit of controversy, as some coaches would like to remove “+” from the list of winning symbols. With the release of VolleyStation 1.15 you can now change winning and losing symbols for each play type, and adjust the efficiency to your needs.

Efficiency calculation can be changed in application settings.
