Manage your Admins Permissions

Updated 1 year ago by Geoffroy "Vomact" Piot


Toornament allows you to give specific permissions over your tournament. To do so, simply go to the General Settings of your tournament, and select Permissions:

Once there, you will be able to add a recipient, and give him permissions to do several things in your tournament, or even apply permissions to groups of users as defined in your Project.
Here are the different options open to you, and what they do:

  • Administrate tournament

This will allow the admin to edit the Settings and Structure of the competition.

  • Delete tournament

As the name states, gives the right to delete the tournament (and also archive it). Use with caution.

  • Change permissions

Name's clear once again, and as a rule of thumb, keep this one just for you, or within a small circle of trust-worthy admins.

  • Report results

Probably the most useful and used one, the recipient can now report any and all match results.

  • Manage participants

Mid-level permission that allows the recipient to change names and info, useful if your tournament attracts a large amount or participants that may need to get updated fast.

  • Place participants

The recipient can now change the seeding and placement of participants in the tournament. Can alter the whole tournament if not used with precaution.

  • Manage registrations

Mid-level permission that gives access to the recipient to the Registration menu, to accept or refuse registrations, and edit their info.

A few advices on admin permissions

  • Do not hand over all the rights to everyone

Some rights should be monitored by only one person, like "Delete Tournament", "Administrate Tournament" and "Change permissions".

  • Set (at least) two levels

The inner circle is for head admins and trusted admins. They should be able to access most of the permissions, like "Manage participants", "Place participants" and "Manage registrations".
The outer circle is for the rest of the team. All admins should probably be able to "Report results". 99% of the time, these two levels are enough to allow for an efficient management.

  • Always know who has permission to do what !

You may now be good to go and benefit from a well managed admin team.
