Are you running an event that involves tracking times? Maybe you are running organizing Formula 1 competition or a tournament involving Mario Kart or GTA? We've got you covered! Our leaderboards and scoreboards now support times allowing you to track hours, minutes and seconds per player (or participant).
How to create a leaderboard with times
You can create a leaderboard, scoreboard or teams leaderboard, depending on your requirements. Go to this page for detailed explanation. For the time being, we'll assume you want to create a leaderboard like in the screenshot above.
Note that you do not need to create an account or provide your credit card details to create a leaderboard. Before you start you should decide whether you need your times in milliseconds or seconds. If you are not sure, choose seconds. You can always change this later.
Process as follows:
- Click on this page to start the process.
- Choose the number of players for the leaderboard and then choose the correct format (this is very important).
Click on the dropdown menu and select one of the following:
- "Time in seconds (HH:MM:SS format)".
- "Time in milliseconds (MM:SS.mmm format)".
- Click on the "ADD PLAYERS" button and then proceed to enter all your players by name.
- Click on "CREATE BOARD" and your leaderboard is ready for use.
- You can now add times to each player by using the blue buttons to add seconds or clicking on the score directly. This will show the dialog below.
How to enter times
Please note that you must always enter times in the "full format". This means that even if you are entering
only seconds, you must provide
00 for the hours and
00 for the minutes.
Examples for seconds (HH:MM:SS format):
- For 1 hour enter
- For 20 seconds enter
- For 90 seconds enter
0:0:90(this will automatically get converted to
- And so on....
Examples for milliseconds (MM:SS.mmm format)
- For 11 seconds enter
- For 3 minutes and half a second enter
Please note that it's not possible to enter milliseconds at the moment. If this is a requirement of yours, please let us know!
What can I use leaderboard with times for?
Here are some more examples to give you some inspriation:
In motorsports, athletics, or any other racing event, the time taken by each participant to complete the race is the most critical metric to determine the winner. A leaderboard that shows seconds and milliseconds can help the audience understand the performance of each participant and their ranking in the competition. We wrote a detailed post about publishing race results online here. Or maybe you you are looking for a Formula 1 themed leaderboard?
🕹️ Online Gaming:
In some online games, the time taken to complete a task or a mission can determine the player's ranking. A leaderboard that shows seconds and milliseconds can motivate players to complete the game as fast as possible and compete against each other to secure the top rank.
👩💻 Programming Challenges:
In coding challenges, the time taken to solve the problem is a crucial factor in determining the winner. A leaderboard that shows seconds and milliseconds can help the participants to understand how much time they need to improve their performance and compete against other participants.

🤔 Quiz Competitions:
In quiz competitions, the time taken to answer a question can determine the winner. A leaderboard that shows seconds and milliseconds can motivate the participants to answer the questions as fast as possible and compete against each other to secure the top rank.
In gymnastics competitions, the time taken by each participant to complete a routine is the most critical metric to determine the winner. A leaderboard that shows seconds and milliseconds can help the audience understand the performance of each participant and their ranking in the competition.
