You can also upload a file and it will be added to the datasets list.

- new app!
Your uploaded files are processed and combined into a working data set. The output from the processing script and summaries of the data set are shown in this section. It is worth checking this log to make sure the processing went OK.
In particular, you will want to ensure that the team_id and player_id values are consistent across different data files. The team_id and player_id values are used to uniquely identify each team and player, and so if a player has different identifiers in different files, the app will think that these are different players.
The output from the processing script is shown below. It is worth checking this log to make sure the processing went OK.
The list of team names and team_id values. If a team appears more than once, it likely has different team_id values in different files.
A summary of the matches in this data set. This might help find duplicate or missing matches.
The list of player names and player_id values. If a player appears more than once, they likely have different player_id values in different files.

The results will be logged to help improve the app. Your DataVolley or VBStats files (if uploaded) will not be kept.
Most of the actions that are counted are self-explanatory: serve aces, attack kills, and serve, pass, attack, and set errors. The perhaps-less obvious ones are:
The default weightings assigned to each action (e.g. 12 points for a serve ace) have to some degree been tailored for international-level play (see the pdf for details). However, you can change these weightings if you feel that different values would be more appropriate for your level of play.
The output gives a breakdown by player of points for each type of action, along with:
adjusted points = (points per set) * 3 * nmatches * (playing time)
nmatchesis the average number of matches played by each team, and
playing time = (number of sets played by the player) / (number of sets played by their team)
