Basic Web Deploy


Overview

The Deploy via Web (Basic) provides an easy method to capture player picks online via the Internet for people with only casual experience in using web pages.

The Basic method of web deployment takes advantage of a service provided by TurboTourney.com that allows your players to enter their picks on your web site but are then processed on our web site. Click here for support details regarding this service.

Here is how it works:  

Step 1.
After entering your tournament options (scoring, tie breakers, etc.) and tournament pairings you are ready to deploy.

Step 2.
When you select Deploy via Web you will be taken to the Deploy via Web Wizard. This wizard will take you step by step through creating the necessary web components. Choose Basic deployment.

Step 3.
You will be asked to provide information about how your entries should be handled.

Step 4.
The Deploy via Web Wizard will then generate an HTML page called “tournamententry.html” and store it locally on your PC in the folder you specify. This is the page that your players will use to enter their picks.

Step 5.
You then need to upload this HTML page to your web site or home page area for your players to access. Your Internet Service Provider (ISP) can provide assistance on how to do this if you need help. You can also choose the Deploy via Email option and email this page to your players.

Step 6.
Give your players the URL to this page on your web site. For example, http://www.your-site.com/tournamententry.html where www.your-site.com is the name of your web site.

Step 7.
Your players will then go to this web page where the entry sheet is displayed using their browser. Each player will navigate through the page entering their player information and making their game selections.

Step 8.
When they are done, they will select the “Submit Picks” button at the bottom of the page. This will refresh the page with their final selections and will either (based on your settings) send you an e-mail message with their pick data or will accumulate the picks until you are ready to retrieve them. Your players will also get a copy of their picks via e-mail if you selected this option.

Step 9.
If you selected to receive entries via email, when you receive the e-mail message you just need to select Remote…Load Web Picks (From an E-mail) and then copy the pick data from the message to the Windows clipboard. This will start the “Load Web Picks” process. If you selected to receive entries via a file, simply select Remote…Load Web Picks (From TurboTourney.com) to retrieve your entries. This will start the “Load Web Picks” process

Step 10.
Begin by selecting “Analyze Header” to verify the file information is correct. If it is ok you can then select “Start Import” to load the picks into your pool and you’re done.

Step 11.
When the tournament begins you will need to remove the entry page so that players cannot continue to submit picks after the tournament has started.

NOTE: System response times may vary due to a variety of factors, including activity volumes, time of day and system performance.
