Sharing Speech Docs & Email Chains now offers users the ability to share speech docs during competition rounds without sharing personal email addresses. Tournament administrators can enable this feature on a per-event basis in the tournament settings of their tournament at Settings > Events > Pairing.

Once enabled, will automatically create a unique URL for that debate in which debaters can upload or download speech docs. That URL can be found on debaters’ homepages in and linked on the right side of a judge’s online ballot. Debaters’ coaches can also see any documents that are provided at this URL.

This new feature was designed with privacy in mind. The email addresses of the round’s participants will not be visible, so students or judges will never have to share their email contacts with anyone. Documents posted are available in the room for 24 hours.
