In the new FIBA LiveStats (FLS) V7, statisticians will notice that some workflows are now restricted, meaning the program will provide guidance and prompt you to enter the next logical action in the sequence. This will prevent against errors and therefore improve accuracy of stats being recorded.



e.g. Steals: In contrast to previous versions of the program, you will notice it's no longer possible to enter a steal and then a turnover, as there is no "steal" button available in FLS V7. Instead, a steal will be prompted only after the turnover is recorded, which is practical according to logic of the game.




The below demonstrates how options are now restricted/guided when entering turnover and steal actions:


e.g. Free Throws: You will also notice that the free throw buttons have been removed with the V7 update. Free throws now need to be added as part of an associated foul action as displayed below. Free throws can only be selected after the foul location, player who recorded the foul, foul type, and the player who received the foul have been selected:



These workflow changes have been designed to assist statisticians in entering the correct sequence of actions. FLS V7 will better support you in this regard.
