Playoffs - Edit matchups for every round.
This feature would allow commissioners to edit the matchups for every round of the playoffs. Currently, only the first round of the playoffs can be changed.
My league would like an option of teams #5 & #6 in a 6 team playoff field to be determined by overall points instead of win/loss record.

There should be a division standing as head to head. Points stats are good but they shouldn't determine the seed in the playoffs. I had a 9th seed that beat 8th in the regular season.
We have 2 divisions of 5...Firemen vs Cops....Top seed each division gets bye. 2vs 3 in week 14 on each side....week 15 winner of 2vs 3 plays #1 seed. week 16 its 1 cop vs 1 fireman for the title and a 3rd place game. No way to set this up under Yahoo's settings. I wouldn';t think it would be that hard to allow commish control the change playoff settings

1st tiebreakers should be head to head !!!

Absolutely ... I beat the guy behind me twice, and still could've lost the division based on divisional record being #1 tiebreaker
The first tie-breaker in divisional leagues should be head to head record. Using divisional records when the schedule is unbalanced creates an unfair advantage for teams.

m having the same problem. I had a family emergency which slowed getting me league going this year and we use a 20-team league that has its schedule based on a set criteria and now it is messed up for this season because it says I can't change something that I should have been able to change according to the site. Let me make adjustments all season long like it say I can do.
This seems like a simple fix and I'm not sure why it doesn't already exist?
It says in the comish tools
"Customize matchups for each week of the season and set your League's Rivalry Weeks." It also says Availability is " All Season"
This is not the case! I kept getting errors when trying to load draft results so when I did them the next day it now only lets me adjust the schedules for weeks 2 - 14 and not week one. Our league has used yahoo for nine years and now our whole layout if wrong because according to help at yahoo week one can NOT be changed after 11:59pm on 09/07 even though I was getting errors and had no help from yahoo so late at night.
This seems like a really easy adjustment that can easily be made by any developer or coder.
Also leagues should be able to structure playoff schedules as they see fit and I have seen it brought up yearly and still no help.
