Tournament Software Basics

What's The Point?

The Gallus Golf Tournament Software is designed to provide a best-in-class experience for the users of an app by providing live scoring and a suite of reporting for the organizers running the event. It is designed to be an all-encompassing tournament management platform that simplifies the experience for users and the facility alike.

This article will outline the Gallus Tournament Software solution in its most basic form and will link out to sub-articles on the finer details.

User Experience



Before we dive into building a tournament in the Gallus Admin Dashboard, let's first get familiar with the user experience. Click here to read our Tournament Software User Experience article.

Manager Setup


Creating A New Tournament


Now that we have an understanding of what the goal is on tournament day, let's set up an event. For detailed instructions, please read our Creating A New Event In The Gallus Tournament Software article.

Methods Of Entry


There are three methods of entering players, groups, and (if necessary) teams into the Gallus Tournament Wizard:

1) Manual Entry



For detailed instructions on this method, please read our Creating A New Event In The Gallus Tournament Software article.

2) Spreadsheet Upload

  1. On the main tournament checklist page, click click here to import via spreadsheet template

  2. On the ensuing page, click Download Template to download an Excel spreadsheet directly to your computer.
  3. Open the file in Excel (or Google Sheets) and fill out the information in the same format as provided.
  4. Once finished and saved, go back to the spreadsheet upload page in the tournament software, click Choose File, and select it.
  5. Click Import

3) Online Registration

Leaderboards

For more information on adding, removing, editing, and displaying tournament leaderboards (along with tiebreakers), please view our How Tournament Leaderboards Work article.

Flights


For detailed instructions on setting up Flights, please read our How Flights Work article.
For detailed information on Print Materials, please read our Gallus Tournament Software Print Materials article.


At the bottom of the main tournament checklist page (below the Leaderboards link from two sections back), you will find the Host Access Link for the specific tournament you're viewing. It's designed for tournament organizers that need access to just one event. This link will allow anyone using it to edit only that specific event, giving them access to nothing else in your Gallus Admin Dashboard.

Duplicating A Tournament

Sometimes you'll have an event that comes on a consistent basis, or that you'd like to duplicate the format of. To do so, go to the bottom of the main tournament checklist page and click Copy Tournament:

This is a great trick for Leagues! Set up the first week and duplicate for each following week to keep the roster of players intact.

Deleting A Tournament

To completely delete a tournament, scroll to the bottom of the main tournament checklist page and click Delete Tournament:
