Adding Officials to Your Organization

As a TeamSnap Tournaments administrator, you can add and update officials information for your tournament organization, and import your official's info from a CSV file. Officials can be managed in two areas. The first is within your admin portal under the Officials tab, and the second is within your tournament management area. This article describes how you can add officials manually one at a time or add multiple officials via a CSV import, and adjust settings to assign officials to games.
