Overview of the Admin Messages Module.

The Admin Messages module is primarily used for TourneyCentral to notify the Tournament Director of invoicing and system messages.

Admin Messages Module

The first thing I will point out is where the messages will appear in the module, this is denoted with the box labeled 1. Here the message will be listed in chronological order, newest first. In order to see all of the messages throughout the years click on the drop down menu, Box 2. Select “See All Messages” and click the “Go!” button.

Admin Message Module

This will bring you to a screen like the one below. You will notice that all of the messages are sorted by year chronologically. Box 3 denotes the header columns; Date, ItemStatus, and Message. Box 4 denotes the Admin link. This link is standard for all of the Admin modules as a way to go back to the admin screen.

Admin Messages Module - See all Messages

The last operation in the Admin Messages Module is the ability to see the Software License. These are the terms and agreements to which the event accepts for using this software. The first thing to do is to click on the Action Menu. The drop down box will appear with the option “Software License”, denoted by Box 5. Select that option and then click the “Go!” button to the right. This will bring you to a screen showing all of the terms and agreements.

Set up Standings and Tiebreakers

Mark teams accepted/not accepted

1. In the Team Applications Module, select filter criteria, if known (Ex: Boys 10).

2. Click on the Go! button.

3. Select the “Accept” or “Not Accepted” from the drop down menu at the top of the listing (you can only apply one or the other to a group of records at a time)

4. Check the checkboxes next to the team(s) you wish to mark Accept or Not Accepted

5. Click the Mark Checked Records button at the end of the listing.

6. In the Team Applications Module, click on the “Make Team Menus” button to build the search menus in the side rail. You should also click on the button every time you make a change in the accpeted/not accepted status of any team, just to make sure you include all.

Before marking teams, you should have a Accept and Not Accept email prepared. Immediately after making the team menus, you should send out an email to the Accepted Teams (filter on acceptance status and make sure that all your teams are selected properly!)

The astute team will notice their status when they log in, even before you send the email, so all of this should be done as one task.

See examples of Acceptance and Non Acceptance letters in the General Help at the top of the Help menu list.

Setting up and Applying Your Email Distribution List

In the update, email distribution will be changing. Currently the email distribution lists are being handled through our servers and when the list needs changing TourneyCentral has to manually change things on the back end. The new version of the software will allow the SuperUser the ability to maintain the email distribution list from the admin on their event, because we understand how the tournament business is very fluid and constantly changing. The other big change is the number of people who will receive emails from the tournament site. We have setup the email distribution to include a persistent email (which gets every email from the site), and a single email address associated with each specific part of the site, e.g. one email will receive only things coming from applications@YOUREVENT.com. In the following help document I will explain how to setup the distribution list in the admin section and also how to setup a gmail account to allow you to automatically forward the emails to any number of people.

Email Distribution Edit Screen

The image to the left is what you will see when setting up the distribution list. You will see that each specific “department” has one email associated with it, and then there is the persistent email. The difference between the “department” specific emails and the persistent email is the persistent email’s function is to act as a giant bin where al the emails get recored. It is somewhat of an archival tool in which if someone looses something it can be searched for and found in the persistent email account. For the persistent email we STRONGLY suggest you setup a gmail account whose only function is to receive the emails generated from the tournament site. The “department” emails are there only to send out the “department” specific emails to the person who needs that notification.

NOTE: It is not advised to have the persistent email address in any other field, as that will generate duplicate emails.

Now that I have explained what everything is I will go through step by step of how to get to/setup email distribution and gmail filters. First we will go to the admin section of your tournament site, where we will go to the Web Site Maintenance Module>>Set Distribution Emails. Click Go.
Set Distribution Emails

This will bring us to the next screen shown below. This is where you will edit the email address of whom should receive what emails. In the text fields just enter the email address of where it needs to go. Make sure that there are no typos in the email addresses.
Email Distribution Edit Screen

The next part of this document will show you how to setup distribution to multiple people, if need be, through the use of Gmail filtering. The first thing to do is sign in to you Gmail account and locate and click on the settings link in the upper right hand corner of you browser. This will bring you to the screen below.
Gmail Settings

From this screen locate and click on the filters tab. (it is where the mouse is pointing). This brings us to the next screen shown below.
Making a filter Step 1

The next step is to click on the Create a new filter link, which will then bring us the the next screen where we will apply the search criteria.
Subject FIlter
Ok, now down to setting up the filter criteria. If there is an email for any specific compartment in the subject will have that compartments handle (e.g. For applications the word APPLICATION will be in the title, for Tournament Director TD will be in the title). The specific handles are | APPS for applications, | TD for tournament director, | ADS for advertising/sponsorship, | COLLEGE for college questions, | HOTEL for housing, | REF for referee, and | SHIRT for apparel. Notice the use of the | (pipe) character, this is one way to distinguish the the format of the contact emails from you event. I would also add in the filter in the space where it say From, the address do_not_reply@YOUREVENTDOMAINNAME.com just to be sure of what you are forwarding. You can test the filter by submitting a test question on you event in the contact us section and then hit the test filter button.

Next we will apply the filter, to do that just click the next step button. The next screen we will see is where we will select the forwarding address for the emails that have been filtered.
Forwarding email

Check the forwarding option among the other actions, and enter in the person’s email that you wish to forward the email to. Click the create filter button to apply the filter. Now you have successfully setup a forwarding filter.

If you have any other questions about this process please feel free to send an email to helpdesk@tourneycentral.com.

***NOTICE Gmail is not our software, therefore we can not support it, nor give a guarantee***

Mark an application paid

1. In the Team Applications Module, select filter criteria, if known (Ex: Boys 10).

2. Click on the Go! button.

3. Select the “Mark Paid” from the drop down menu at the top of the listing

4. Check the checkboxes next to the team(s) you wish to mark paid

5. Click the Mark Checked Records button at the end of the listing.

You may also mark an application paid in the application detail screen.

The Admin Screen – A Start

Admin Modules Tab
This is the first screen you will see when you login to the TourneyCentral admin.

The first tab, which is labeled 1 and highlighted by the red box, contains all of the admin modules. This is where most of the administrative work will take place for the event.

Message Center Tab
The second tab is the Message Center, again highlighted by the red box and labeled 2. In here all of the emails that go/come through the site are captured and sorted according to whom they were sent (Tournament Director, Referee Assignor, Advertising Director, etc…).

Tournament PulsePoint Tab

The Tournament PulsePoint tab, box 3, is where you are able to see the economic and demographic information in real time for your event. These are good things to know when seeking out advertising opportunities.

Tournament Store Tab

The Tournament Store Tab is currently in progress.. We will let you know when we decide the outcome of the development.

Seed teams

1. In the Team Applications Module, select an Age Group and Gender to filter (Ex: Boys 10).

2. Click on the Seed button.

3. Select the first seed, select 01 in the drop down menu and click Edit on the team line.

4. Continue until all your teams are seeded. They will sort by seed. Teams are seeded as 00 when the application comes in, so the new teams are always at the top of the list.

Note: Seeding teams as the applications are received will save time and stress!

Adding and Removing Access to the Admin Section

To edit the user access to the administration part of your event software, sign in to the admin screen through http://(your url here).com/admin.

Then scroll to the bottom until you see the Administration Module. There there are fields labeled Name, Pwd, fields for all of the modules with check boxes underneath them, an edit button, and lastly a delete button.

Explanation for the Administration Module

The first two text fields are for the name and password for the user you would like to set up.

The fields for the check boxes are for the privileges you wish to grant that specific user.

The edit button is there for when you want to add the user or when you have modified a current user. This button should be clicked to save the edits you have made to the user list.

The delete button is there, so that you can control access to your administration side of your event.

With the coming software update in January 2010 you will only be able to give access to a maximum of five people.

**Please Note only the SuperUser has the ability to see/edit this module, If you need your password reset or access to the administration side of the event please contact them. The SuperUser is you tournament director.**

Front page photos

You have a choice to display photos or sponsor logos and links on the far right box of your front page. If you do not have photos uploaded into your Media Management Module, the choice to display photos will not be available.

If you wish to display a static shirt design graphic, select “Display Graphic” and this will override both Photos and Sponsor Ads for your front page. To see which graphic is installed, roll over the “Display Graphic” and the design uploaded will pop over.

To change the shirt design, select Upload Shirt Design from the Action Menu in the Website Maint Module.
The toggle to display photos, sponsor ads or the shirt design in in the Website Maint Module>Variables>GO!

Uploading Photos
If you wish to display photos on your front page, you should upload them BEFORE you attempt to toggle the choice.

Embedding:
You may also wish to consider embedding content from your social media feeds and leave the sponsor logo rotation in the media box on your front page. Embedding content from your social platforms gives you the flexibility to include richer graphics on your front page AND keep your sponsors on the front page.

Web Traffic/Advertising Terms

Deals: That listing you get when you click on the Deals button on the upper rigth side of the web site

webTraffic01

Page View: One web page.. i.e., the home page is a page view, a look at the BU12 scores is a page view, etc.

Hits: HUGE number, but almost entirely meaningless. A hit is a download of a file to the browser. The home page might have 12 hits (header graphics, photo, 3 scripts that produce the about data, etc, etc while the scores might only have 5 hits…)

Unique Visitor: You will get asked this a lot. This is what advertisers like, because it is generally a lower number and they want to based their CPM on this number. You want them to based their CPM on page views. It is an attempt to measure how many unique people visit the site, rather than the number of pages. It is unmeasurable for all sorts of reasons I won’t even begin to go into. But, they will ask and we will tell. However, the high number of page views to unique visitor ratio suggests that many people visit again and again and again…. we have stickiness. (An average tournament will get 6,000-9,000 unique visitors)

Stickiness: The ability of a web site to attract a loyal audience, measured through repeat visits.

Expanded Listing: A listing in the Deals section. This is named such because you can elect to just list the business name, address and phone number OR “expand” out their listing to include a logo, maps, and an offer. Each expanded listing will be billed at $10 per on your final invoice, no matter how much you charge the company.
