Step 6c: Creating Draws - Compass Draw

Once registration has closed you're able to create your draws. To being creating the draws, scroll to the top of your event page and click the Edit > Create Draws button

When the draw creation page opens, you'll see all the players who have registered under the division you created under the Not Placed tab on the left of the screen. You may need to click the arrow to expand the list to view the players. 

Once you see all the names under the “Not Placed” tab, select the players you want to place in a compass draw together. Once you have the players selected who will be competing against one another in the compass draw, click the Move button in the black bar above the player list. Note UTR supports compass draws up to a maximum of 16 players.

 Next, click Move to a new draw and click create new draw or click on one of the existing draws to move them there. 

Enter in the information for the draw you have just created. Double check that all information is correct before clicking Move.

You will NOT be able to come back and edit this information. You can name this draw anything you choose! Once all the information has been entered, click “Move” to add the selected players to the draw.

Now, you will see that the new draw has been created with the 8 players selected. To fill the draw, click Auto-Fill in the black box. This will place the players in the draw for you based on UTR!

Once you have the players placed in the draw, you can then enter in times, dates, and locations for the matches. You have the option to do this by round by clicking the “Set Location, Date and Time” under the round which will assign the specified location, date and time to all the matches in the round., or you can do it by individual matches by clicking the “Set Date & Time” on the match box. 

To view and edit the additional sides of the compass draw, move your courser to the far left of the page to expand the "draws" tab. There you can select the side of the draw (east, west, north, south) you would like to edit. Note once scores are entered, players are automatically pushed to the appropriate draw. 

Once the times are entered, you can then choose to Publish the draws. Publishing draws allows for the players to then see the draws from the main event page. To Publish the draws, click the “Publish” button on the top right of the page. There you can select each draw you would like to publish. If you ever want to unpublish the draw, simply uncheck the boxes.

When draws have been published, you will then be taken to the event homepage. There you will scroll down and click on the “draws” tab to view the draws. Here you can filter through the published draws and print your draws.

Congrats, you've just created your Compass draw!
