LiveHeats offers a solution for organisations that have multiple levels, like state, national, or international bodies. Examples include:
- World Snowboard Federation with over 50 member nations (two levels)
- Surfing New Zealand with 20+ clubs (two levels)
- Surf Life Saving Australia with States, Branches and Clubs (four levels)
LiveHeats offers a Federation solution for the needs of these organisations. Features include:
- ability for shared Series for the purpose of using the same rankings, seedings, or memberships
- single athlete database shared by all organiser accounts
- shared custom athlete or division fields that allow you to have common athlete profiles
- a directory that lists all the child accounts:
Organisers at each level will have their own LiveHeats account. To set up a multi-level ranking for your organisation and child organisations, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set it up for you.
Once configured, child organisations will be permitted to add their events to the parent's, or grand parent's series. See this article with the child organisation with the steps to add their event to your rankings.
Important things to notes before using LiveHeats federated rankings feature:
- If a child organiser is using a leaderboard multiplier for an event, that multiplier will be applied to that event on the parent's rankings
- When the child's event status is Complete the event will appear on the parent director's Rankings tab (not to the public)
- When the child's event status is Results published, the event will appear on the parent director's Ranking tab, as well as the parent organisation's public Rankings tab
- In some cases, duplicate athletes (same athlete appearing on separate rows multiple times) will appear on the parent rankings. See here for how to manage them.
