The EventBeacon Division Tab allows Event Administrators to organize and manage teams for their events by categorizing them into divisions. This tab also allows you to see how many teams per division are attending your event. After the initial import, division information can be updated or changed as needed. As an Event Administrator, you are given the option to either import your complete list of divisions or add divisions individually.
This article will detail how to use the Divisions tab to categorize the teams at your event.
When you first navigate to the empty divisions tab, you are given the option to "Upload Divisions." The CSV is provided below this option and can also be found here.
You simply have to download the CSV template, fill our the divisions and upload! After the initial upload you are able to import additional divisions, update division information, and remove divisions as needed. The steps for each of these are outlined in further detail below.
Adding Divisions Individually
In addition to importing an entire division list, you are able to manually add divisions individually. To do so, click the blue “Add New” drop down menu in the upper right corner of the dashboard and select “Add Division”. This will take you to a form where you can fill out the information, as shown below:
Updating Division Information
Divisions can be edited so that you can stay on top of any last-minute changes that happen before or on-site at an event. These edits will be visible to coaches on the EventBeacon app, keeping them in the loop. To do this, click the blue gear icon to the right of the player you want to edit and select “Edit Info”.
There will be some scenarios where data does not need to be edited, but removed entirely. You are able to select multiple divisions at a time and erase the data for that column by clicking the white box to the left of each division name. Once you have selected the correct divisions, you can choose to remove them by clicking on the trash icon as shown below:
Bulk Updating Divisions
Divisions can be bulk updated through the admin system. To bulk update this information all you need to do is download the already uploaded CSV, edit any of the information you would like to update and re-import the CSV. You can download the available CSV by choosing the "Download CSV" option in the upper right hand corner of the dashboard.
Once all edits have been made to the CSV, you can choose "Add New" and "Upload CSV" to import your updated division list.
EventBeacon provides a superior event experience for both coaches and event administrators alike, while empowering student-athletes to take control of their recruiting experience. With access to all relevant student-athlete recruiting information in the app, coaches are able to efficiently and effectively evaluate players on-site. Similarly, event administrators are able to utilize the software to generate a coaches book in seconds, while also being able to make any roster or event changes immediately visible to coaches. The more efficient the coach’s experience, the more exposure for athletes, and the more exposure for athletes, the more successful an event.
