This article will explain how to schedule tournament games in the Tourney Tool, using the calendar view. The calendar view is the easiest way to arrange a schedule, if you haven't already created the schedule. If you have an already created schedule, the game list schedule is the easiest area to schedule. To use the calendar view, first create time slots, then drag and drop games in to that schedule.
(1) Creating Time Slots
Step 1: Select Schedule> Select Calendar> Select Edit Time Slots (The toggle is located to the left of the calendar.)
Step 2: Select a location in the Calendar View by clicking on the location's name. (Hold down SHIFT to select a range of multiple locations.)
Step 3: Enter the desired time slot criteria> Click Create Time Slots. Time slots will be created on the calendar to the right.
Select Multiple Individual Time Slots: Hold down the COMMAND key (Mac) or CONTROL key (PC) while selecting time slots.
Move Time Slots: Select the time slot(s) you wish to move. (If time slots at multiple locations are selected, movement is only allowed within their current locations and not to new locations.) Drag it to the new time and/or location, then release it.
Edit Time Slots: Hover over the time slot on the calendar> Click edit (pencil) icon> Edit the time slot details> Save your changes.
Delete Time Slots: Hover over the time slot on the calendar> Click delete (x) icon> The time slot will be removed from the calendar view.
(2) Schedule Games
To schedule games — assign a date, time, and location — drag them from the list (left) to the calendar (right):Step 1: Make sure you are viewing the correct day.
Step 2: Locate the game you want to schedule in the game list. (You can filter this list, if needed.)
Step 3: Drag the game from the list to the specific location and time you wish to assign it to on the calendar. (To avoid bothersome scrolling, ensure the location and time you wish to assign a game to is already visible on the calendar.)
Select Single Games: Click the game you wish to select> The selected game will be a solid color with white lettering.
A Range of Multiple Games : Select one game by clicking on it> Hold down the SHIFT key while selecting a second game> All games located between those selected will be automatically selected.
Multiple Individual Games: Hold down the COMMAND key (Mac) or CONTROL key (PC) while selecting games> Games located between those selected will remain unselected.
Moving Games: Select the game(s) you wish to move. (If games at multiple locations are selected, movement is only allowed within their current locations and not to new locations). Drag it to the new time and/or location, then release it. (To snap games to time slots, ensure the "snap games to time slots" option is checked.)
Swapping Games: Select two games that you wish to swap on the calendar. With the two games selected, click the swap button to the top right of the calendar. (Look for an icon with crisscrossing arrows). The games will replace each other.
Creating New Games: Click the create (+) button on the top right of the calendar. Enter the details for the game (division stage is required, and games may only be added to pool play stages). Click Create Game.
