Yes you can. By default, our platform supports 2 types of scoring:
Point per Place, lowest score wins (i.e. 1st place gets 1 point, 2nd place gets 2 points, etc..)
Table Based, where each placement has an assigned point value (i.e. 1st place gets 100 pts. You can see the default point spread here.
Global Point System
Global level scoring applies to all divisions and workouts.
To define your own global point system, go to:
Scoring Setup to setup your global scoring system (if you want to specify a point system for a specific Division, go to that division)
Select "By Point" scoring, this will expose another option to turn on custom scoring, set that to Use
Next prepare your scoring breakdown. Create a spreadsheet with 2 columns. First column named Rank, second column named Points. (Proper casing)
Save that spreadsheet as a comma separated value (CSV) file
Then go back to Scoring Setup and click "Upload Custom Scoring"
Upon a successful upload, you will see a new option called "View Point Breakdown", this allows you to view your point breakdown.
This scoring system will apply for all divisions unless you specify a point system at the division level.
Here's an example of what the CSV file would look like
Division Level Point System
Division level scoring will always take PRIORITY over your Global Scoring.
It's quite common to have a different number of competitors in each division.
If you enable custom scoring, you also enable the ability to define a specific scoring system by division.
The file format of the point system is the same as above, the only difference is you'll upload the point system within each division.
Here's an example of competition using a specific 40 competitor point system for 8 of their 9 events:
Workout Level Point System
Workout level scoring will always take PRIORITY over your Global and Divisional Scoring.
If you cut athletes as they progress to a final workout, this allows you to adjust the scoring based on the decrease in competitors going into future workouts.
The file format of the point system is the same as above, the only difference is you'll upload the point system within each workout.
Here's an example of a competition using a specific 10 competitor point system for their final workout after cutting their field down from 40 competitors to 10 competitors, jump to Event 9:
