Your Home Page is, by default, the same as your Manager Overview screen. The difference here is that any screen in Football Manager™ 2017 can be set as your Home Page by selecting the ‘Bookmarks’ sub-tab, which is located in the ‘World’ menu, and selecting the ‘Set this page as home page’ option.
The Steam Workshop is your one-stop shop for additional Football Manager™ content. You will be able to find customisable content in the form of competitions, logos, kits, and player pictures created by third party users and easily integrate them into your game experience.
The Football Manager™ Data Editor is a powerful application that allows the user to modify the Football Manager™ 2017 game database. As a part of the Data Editor, you can edit and create competitions. For help using the editor, please visit the Community Forums at http://community.sigames.com/.
The Football Manager™ In-Game Editor is purchasable through Steam and allows you to make real-time edits to your saved games. Once activated, you will notice an ‘Edit’ option on various screens and in assorted Actions Menus.
The ‘Edit’ option on the Title Bar will typically allow you to edit ‘hidden’ attributes and values, such as a player’s Current and Potential Abilities. The ‘Edit’ functionality found within the ‘Actions’ menu, however (click on ‘Start Editing’), will allow you to edit a person’s profile ‘live’, as you see it. For example, a player’s attributes and biographical details will turn into editable fields whilst editing is enabled, with the values open to alteration. Once you’re happy with the amendments, click on ‘Stop Editing’ from the same ‘Actions’ menu section.

You also have the possibility to upload video highlights of goals to your YouTube page. From the Match Screen, you will have a list of possible videos to upload.
Videos can be as simple as a single uploaded goal or as creative as a match highlights package. When playing a match, you can record a segment of play by clicking on the red ‘record’ button (and then again to finish recording). At full time or post-match, you can collate a series of clips into one package and then upload the content to YouTube.
Simply select the one(s) you wish to upload, and click the button to send them to YouTube, where they will be processed, allowing you to watch and share them with as many people as you want.
You can configure a number of keyboard shortcuts to aid your navigation around Football Manager™ 2017. You can do this from the ‘Preferences’ screen, under the ‘Shortcuts’ sub-tab.
Scroll through the extensive list of screens which a shortcut can be assigned to, and either take note of the pre-set shortcut provided, or change it to one of your own preference by clicking on the ‘Add New’ button and then assigning a combination of keys. If that particular shortcut is already in use, a dialog box will pop up informing you of this clash.
