Delayed BWS file linking:
As a number of federations software base the creation of a tournament on a BWS file, we have added the import and handling of a BWS file to our features. You can read more about the BWS based flows and steps here
The use of a BWS based tournament creation, unfortunately, is a very strict step by step process – we have made it easy but in certain circumstances, it is not – for example, a Walk-In tournament – as a change in step 1 – it could be one less or one more table present than created in the BWS file – will require a completely new step by step process where everybody has to wait – and that we don’t like!
Therefore we have made it possible to create the tournament in Bridge+More and the add the BWS file later when you are sure you know the exact details of the tournament and can use the high degree of flexibility in the Bridge+More solution instead
(We call it “add the BWS file” – it actually means we have imported to the BWS file making it possible for the Bridge+More solution to write all the game details into the BWS file and for you to get the updated BWS file back to read it into your federations software)
How to link a BWS file – see picture at right:
You are asked for the BWS file (process not shown). The file is read and processed. Then the result of our first BWS analysis comes up for you to check
