Why you should always sign up for Tournament Back-ups

Tabbing tournaments is hard work and sometimes mistakes are made! Have you ever been in a situation where tabroom staff made a mistake or an error in your tournament?

Did you know that offers a feature that can help resolve mistakes and errors by setting your tournament back to before the error was made? This feature is called Tournament back-ups. Tournament data that has been backed up can be used to restore any tournament to a previous point in time should a catastrophic error occur.

To sign up for a tournament’s back-up data follow these steps:

Click settings >> events

Pick the event that you’d like to receive back-up information and data for. For this example we’ve chosen Policy

Click the updates tab

Enter the email address that you’d like to receive back-up data. Entering your email address here will ensure that you receive back up information on a round by round basis.

If you’d like to receive back-up data for the entire tournament click the button below and you’ll be prompted to a screen where you can enter the email address where you’d like to receive that information.

Here are the steps to upload back-up data
