Although I think this web site is fairly easy to use, enough people have problems that I have created a series of videos that show how to use various features and capabilities. This is the the Soccer-tournament.us Youtube Channel. The newest videos are described here:
Groups & Brackets Game Reporting (11:15) - This video demonstrates several game reports. Several authorization methods are also covered.
Game Report using a tournament link w valid PIN, in an email (1:17) - A game result is reported using a phone.
Game Reports using PIN enabled URL (0:43) - A game result is reported using a tablet
2x2x4 Tournament Build in 5 minutes (16:17) - This is probably the best of the three. It explains the process fairly well and isn't too long. It starts with 2:36 of introduction, followed by a 5 minute tournament build (ending at 7:40), with commentary. This is followed by about 3 minutes of information about the Tournament Definition that was just built. The TD is loaded into the website at 10:43. The new tournament page is described at 11:22. Regrouping of the Girls division is shown starting at 12:15. The revised tournament, with different teams in the Girls groups, is ready at 14:40.
Tournament Review (View) is demonstrated at 15:00.
TD Builder Demo and Review - 2 x 2 x 4 (17:48) - This tutorial is very similar to the "2x2x4 Tournament Build in 5 minutes" video. If you're only going to watch one, watch that one. However, this does have a some information that is not included in the that video and may be worth watching if you're really curious. It does show how Tournament Review can flag 4 games in one day.
2x2x4 TD Build in 3:35 (4:58) - This is not so much a tutorial as it is a experiment. I wanted to see how fast I could build the 2x2x4 tournament. Obviously I had the tournament information ready for cut and paste, and I knew exactly what to do without thinking about it too much; the Tournament Definition was created in 2:59 ( 0:53-3:52 on the video ), with the tournament up and running in a little over 3:30 (at 4:08).
There are several other videos showing "TD Builds", though they use older software and some of the pages will be a little different: TD Build Videos.
