Previous Number of Seasons of Competition Used
The "Previous Number of Seasons of Competition Used" field is a way to designate seasons used outside of ARMS (transfers who have roster years that would not be in ARMS to mark as Counted). This field can be found under the Compliance tab at the bottom of the SA profile.
An example of when to use this is a transfer that played 3 years at a previous institution. In this situation you would mark this field as 3 (shown above) because the SA has 3 previous years counted on a roster outside of ARMS.
Seasons Used on the Squad List is the SUM of both the Previous Number of Seasons of Competition Used PLUS Counts Towards Seasons Used. If you mark three previous years as "COUNTED" in the Roster & Eligibility Status widget and then update the "Previous Number of Seasons of Competition Used" to 3 as well, your total on the Squad List will be 6 (3+3=6).
Understanding both will allow you to correctly calculate the # Seas Utl on the Squad list for you entire team no matter if they are a 6th year senior of a Graduate Transfer.
