Quick start guide

Learn the basics of how to use Keepthescore.com, what's possible and whether it's the right tool for you

What is Keepthescore.com?

Keepthescore.com is a browser-based scorekeeper. You do not need to install an app to use it. It is optimised for mobile devices and will work great on your phone or tablet. Of course, it works great on a desktop too.

Keepthescore.com does not connect to any external data sources (yet). This means all scores are added manually in the browser or uploaded via an Excel spreadsheet.

The idea of Keepthescore.com is that you create a scoreboard or leaderboard (or one of other types of boards) and then:

  • share it with others via a link,
  • embed on a webpage or
  • display it in a public setting

However, you can also just use it for yourself, if you want!

There are 2 main board types

There are 2 types of boards available on Keepthescore.com:

  1. Live Sports Scoreboards - These are used to keep track of scores in a live sports match. They are suitable for showing scores in a live-stream, using streaming software such as OBS, vMix or StreamLabs.
  2. Leaderboards - These are used to keep track of scores over time for individuals or teams. They are suitable for keeping track of scores in a competition, or to keep track of scores in a classroom. Below is a 3-minute video giving you an idea of how the leaderboards work.
