confirmation of participation
Would be great to force players to confirm that they will actually play, not just 'register and forget'. Implement adding stage between register and publishing tournament where players have to enter site and click some kinda 'I confirm that I will play' button :)
The participant check-in feature has finally been released!
Yes sir . That sounds like a very good idea .
Found a couple things to patch, so this hasn't shipped yet. If any of you are able to beta test this on http://staging.challonge.com, that'll definitely speed up this process; otherwise, I have some more automated tests to write before we can confidently deploy this feature. Thanks!
@Purce I just put the check-in branch back up on staging after your first comment. The start date and check-in time fields should be visible regardless of the number of participants.
This week I'll be revising this feature based on feedback we received, so it should be available on the production site soon!
Ah, it's four :)
What is the minimum number of participants to allow the time request?
Do you have some news about that? It would be awesome :)
Oh! Thanks for this. I'm trying to host 100+ participant tournaments and this will help a lot.
Looks great! Glad to see this feature is approaching.
I realize there's a good chance you only have a few options because it's in testing, but I figure I should ask to make sure. Will there be more options under "Check-in opens x minutes before start time" when the feature is fully released? Some of the events we run would significantly benefit from opening check-in a day or two beforehand, rather than an hour or two.
Is there any update on this? The sooner this feature is implemented, the better. Right now it's really difficult to host events and tournaments when I have to spend so much time finding out who is actually playing and who signed up and forgot.
Oh, woops, didn't see this! My things basically the same idea. Awesome knowing it'll be done soon!
Really like this idea. I think I might have double posted something very similar. Tons of players sign up but half never show up. Which means brackets now have 50% players who don't show up. So players are sitting around and waiting to hear a response if the team is here or not. This will eliminate this whole waiting process. Maybe adding a time. So at 12PM PST Sign In button is available until 12:15. Great suggestion. hope this goes through.
