Directions for Using the eBracket
Once you have your own copy, select the size bracket you need and enter your players into the yellow “Player Seeds” section on the right. Set the number of games to win per set at the top, and then enter the match scores into the boxes provided on the bracket. The eBracket will automatically update each match for you, and generate full results on the left.
One of the great features of Google Docs is that you can publish your bracket to the web where people can see updates in real time. You can also share access with multiple tournament staff members for collaborative bracket updates.
Bracket Seed Generator (BSG)
Built by Ziggy (Andrew), the BSG is an Excel spreadsheet with macros designed to generate seeds automatically. The BSG includes ranked and regional seeding functionality, along with automated pool generation for large tournaments. The latest version of the BSG also has the ability to run tournaments similar to the eBracket.
