Playoff Migration Issues
After you've designed and deployed your game, there are times when you'd want to change the design. Maybe the name of one of your badges is misspelt, or maybe your team roles are jumbled up, or you want to rework your process design.
Playoff houses a bunch of resolver bots, who work in the background and resolve all these design changes quite well. But there are dark times when you make changes which confuse our dear bots. In those times of trouble, we ask you to step up to the monumental task of deciding what to do with those changes. When you simulate (or launch) your game after making some breaking changes, we pause the deployment and throw out a bunch of Issues which you have to manually resolve before going ahead with the deployment.
What follows is a list of issues which our Platform produces, and the possible fixes for each issue.
