🗓️ Schedule

Creating a match schedule starts with adding playing fields. Assign a name and starting time to each field. Next, let's set the match duration in this example to 15 minutes. If the match duration varies per division or group, you can expand the entry field accordingly.

Utilize the Planner tool from the sidebar to automatically schedule the matches. These matches are generated based on the Format you’ve setup earlier. You have the option to schedule all matches at once, or use filters to plan selected groups and brackets on specific fields. We can manually drag not planned matches to a playing field. For instance, we can schedule the plate semi-finals at 14:40 on pitch 1 and 2, and the plate final alongside the grand final on pitch 2. The same drag and drop feature can be used to make changes to the schedule afterwards.

Additionally, you can choose to include breaks and events. For instance, it might be beneficial to allocate some resting time between the group and knockout stages. Events can be used to communicate extra activities to the teams, such as a lunch, or award ceremony. Once the matches are planned, you can assign referees. This can be done manually or we can let the app handle it for us.

If you’ve set multiple locations or match days on the General page, you can switch between locations and match days to create a schedule for each day and location separately.

In case you’re organizing a league with Tournify, the Rounds filter from the planner tool helps you scheduling one fixture for each team on a match day.

You have the option to export the entire schedule as a PDF or Excel file for a printed backup. However, there are more elegant and engaging ways to present your tournament to players and spectators! And we'll cover all of them in the next video.
