This page displays both a team's scheduled times and schedule requests.

Scheduled Times

A team typically has 2 scheduled times:

  • time of their Team Challenge presentation and the room where they will present
  • time of their Instant Challenge presentation

For teams this information is only displayed when the schedule has been published. For officials, the times listed are the current times.  If the schedule has not been published, these time might change based on further scheduling.

Schedule Requests

Schedule Requests are requests by a team on when their TC and IC presentations should be scheduled at a tournament.

The Resource Area categorizes requests as follows:

  • a time request
    • our team cannot arrive at the tournament before a specific time
    • our team needs to leave the tournament at a specific time
  • a kid (team member) request
    • a kid on our team is also on the following teams at this tournament
  • a tm (team manager) request
    • one of our team managers is also managing other teams at this tournament
    • as the Resource Area knows all the team managers, you don't need to enter these requests
  • a family request
    • our team has siblings on the following teams at this tournament
    • we'd like to be able to see the other teams at our school

As you might expect, all of these do not necessarily carry the same weight.

  • most schedulers honor time requests provided they are reasonable
  • kid requests are likely the most important requests to handle
  • teams are expect to have backup plans for busy team managers so a scheduler does their best
  • family requests typically have the lowest priority

Depending on the mix of requests at a tournament, schedulers do their best to meet requests, but it is not always possible.

Both team managers and tournament officials can enter schedule requests.

Team managers can enter requests from Tournaments=>my tournaments as explained here.

Tournament Officials access to schedule requests is discussed here.
