 +**Contact Information** can also be seen by the opposition captains and allows the team to tell them how they would like to be contacted. You might, as the organiser, pre-seed this with email addresses or let the captains enter this themselves.
  
 **Team originally seeded** can be checked to make this team a seed. Note that you cannot check this box after the team has played a match, as it messes up some of the calculations. If you must amend this later, remove the result of any matches the team has played (delete the scores), change the team seeding and then reenter the match results. **Team originally seeded** can be checked to make this team a seed.

 +===== Make a draw =====
 +
 +The next thing you'll want to do is draw Round 1. Instructions on how to do this can be found at [[knockouts:​make-a-draw|Making A Draw]], so head over there and then come back here to continue the tutorial.

 +===== Entering a result =====
 +
 +Clicking on a match in the match list opens up a form like this:
 +
 +{{ :​knockouts:​edit-match.png?​nolink |}}
 +
 +Here you can enter the match date, match score, whether or not it was a walkover (in which case give the winning team any score to indicate which team proceeds) and the number of boards that each player played.

Note that if the later match already has a result entered, you will not be able to change the winner of this match.
