Set to visible for users to find the tournament, or set to hidden to hide the tournament.

Start Tournament

You may manually start a tournament at any time as long as there are at least 4 competitors registered (or 4 competitors checked in when check-ins are enabled). Once started, the brackets will appear, competitors will be notified via email, and matches may be reported.

If the selected tournament is set to manual seed, the Seed Tournament page will appear.

End Tournament

Clicking on the icon to end a tournament will set the statuts to finished regardless of any matches still in progress.

Edit Tournament

You may edit a tournament at any time; however, certain fields are disabled depending on several factors.

  • If a tournament has no registered competitors, you may edit any field in the tournament.
  • If a tournament has one or more registered competitors, you may edit any field except Competition and Team Size.
  • If a tournament has already started, you may only edit the Name, Game, Rules, Score Reporting, and Visibility.

If you wish to edit a field that is disabled because a tournament has already started, then you must first reset the tournament. If you wish to edit the Competition type, then you must reset the tournament if it has already started and then also remove competitors.

Reset Tournament

A tournament that has started may be reset. This will erase all matches and bracket seeding.

Delete Tournament

You may delete a tournament that you no longer wish to have record of existing. Deleting a tournament also deletes corresponding match data. If you no longer want the tournament to appear on any pages, you should consider setting the visibility to hidden instead of deleting the tournament.

Clone Tournament

Use this link to clone the current tournament. A new tournament with an edited title and start date set to today with all other settings identical is created.

Seed Tournament

When creating a tournament, there are three seeding methods to choose from. One of those methods, Manual, requires you to arrange competitors on the bracket before the tournament begins. When you start a tournament that must be manually seeded, the Seed Tournament screen appears.

There are two main sections on this page. The left is a preview of the brackets, and the right lists all of the competitors. For each match in Brackets, there are two drop downs with a list of competitors. Selecting a competitor in a drop down will automatically remove the competitor from any other match. In addition, the match drop down which just had your selection removed will turn red and display the text Please Select.

Competitors which have not yet been placed appear in the Competitors list on the right in red. Competitors which have been placed appear in green.

When you are finished seeding a tournament, click the Seed button and the tournament will begin.
