Adding team members
Whenever organizing an event, the most important thing is to have a team of dedicated people knowing their job. Of course it is possible to set up a competition in RaceGorilla and organize everything on your own, but the real advantage of RaceGorilla is when working together as a team.
Each team member will ha a specific role within the organisation of your competition. You assign team members to a specific task by entering their full email address. If you assign someone that does not have a RaceGorilla account yet, he or she will receive an invitation to sign up.
As the competition owner (admin) you can assign the role of the team member, for example Timekeeper. If you want a timekeeper to be assigned to a specific timing location you can select advanced permissions and select the locations applicable. More about team members and roles can be found under adding a team.
The next step is to set up the series of your competition.
