Your Signup Page Items

The page items are actually the "fields" or information items that you request from people who sign up for your event. You can modify existing items, add more or delete some from the Signup Items area.

Editing Your Signup Page Items

  1. To begin editing your page items, select a signup page from the Signup Page tab and click on the Edit icon [].

  2. Now click on the Signup Page icon.

  3. You are now at the Signup Page editing screen (Figure 2).

    Figure 2

  4. You can now do one of two actions to enter the editing area for the signup page items:

    a) Click on the Items tab, which will bring up the Page Items, and then click on the Edit icon []; or

    b) Click on the Edit icon [] next to the blue "Signup Items" link. See Figure 2 above.

  5. You are now in the area to add, modify or delete your Signup Page Items. The image below shows the multi-player signup form.

    If the signup form is for a tournament, there are two different choices: a) Tournament - Individual (Figure 3 below) and b) Tournament Team (Figure 4 below). There is a critical difference between these two templates when you plan to import the registered players into Tournament Manager or need to import the signed up players into a database with each player on his/her own row (record) of the database. For the Tournament - Individual, make sure from the drop-down menu that you select "Standard Signup (Person can only signup themself)". For the Tournament Team, select from multiple-player templates for 2, 3 or 4-somes from the drop-down menu.

    With the multi-player template - and let's say it is a 4-person team tournament - one player can sign up all four players on one signup form and those four players can be exported as one row (one record with four players) or four rows (four records with one player per record). This means that each of the four players will appear on their own row in Tournament Manager. (Previous to the 2012 version, you could create a form to sign up more than one player, such as a foursome, but they all occupied one row (one record) and could not be imported as four different players.)
