Team Leaderboards FAQ - KeepTheScore

Here is a list of commonly asked questions along with their answers.

How can I share a board with others?

Click on the "PUBLISH" button in the control panel of your scoreboard. You will see the dialog below. Choose the type of sharing you require and click on it.

Example of an embedded scoreboard

Your board has several unique links:

  • The admin link. With this link you can configure the board and add scores.
  • The public link which you can share with other people. They will not be able to change the board in any way,
  • The restricted link which you can also share with other people. They can add and edit scores but do nothing else (e.g. changing the appearance or adding and deleting players).

If you click on one of the options shown above you will get the link you require. Click on the "copy" button to copy the link to your clipboard.

Example of an embedded scoreboard

Now you can send the link via WhatsApp, email or text message.

You can also download your board as an image file, which can then be used in presentations or other documents.

Can I remove ad banners from my board?

Yes, you can. To do so, you need a premium membership.

How can I reset a board?

On the control panel, click on the "RESET". Note that this is irreversible!

How can I edit or delete a player?

On the admin view, click on the player name. A new screen opens allowing you to edit or delete the player.

How can I change the look and feel of the board?

There are 2 ways of customising the look of your board:

Choosing a theme

On the control panel of your board, click on the "COLORS AND THEMES" button. You can now select a theme from the dropdown. Then click on "SAVE".

You can see all available themes here.

Editing colors

On the admin view of your board, click on the "COLORS AND THEMES" button.

You can then edit the background and text color for the whole scoreboard.

Can I upload an image to the board?

On the admin view, click on the "SETTINGS" button and then on the "UPLOAD A LOGO" button.

How can I delete a scoreboard or leaderboard?

NOTE: Only the owner of a board can delete it.

  1. The owner needs to be logged in and on the homepage.
  2. Here the owner will see a list of boards stored in her account.
  3. Each list entry has a button named "DELETE".
  4. Click this button and confirm. The board will then be deleted forever!

Example of an embedded scoreboard

You can also see boards that you have accessed using the admin link in this list, even if you are not the owner! You can remove them from the list using the same procedure as above, but be aware that this does not delete them.

I want to publish/share my scoreboard or leaderboard

Great! It's best to use the "PUBLISH" button at the top of your board. This will give you a public link to share which will ensure that nobody else can edit your scoreboard or change scores.

Can I embed a scoreboard or leaderboard in an existing web page?

Sure! Read this post about adding widgets to web pages. This way the embedded board will always show the latest scores.

Alternatively you can download your board as an image and use that in your web page.

Can I export or download my data?

Yes you can. At the top of your board, click on "PUBLISH". On the resulting page, you can download a CSV file or a PNG image.

Is there an API?

There is a very simple API. More information available here).
