"Go live" checklist
Ready to go live with your Picker? We recommend reviewing the following list before launching and double-checking if you have:
- All images uploaded are the correct dimensions. Export image files in 2x to ensure none of the images appear pixelated.
- Ensure you have uploaded all your picking items with the correct name, relevant tags and imagery.
- You have named all pickers with the relevant positions or labels so users are aware of the positions they are filling.
- If you have different formations, ensure each formation is labelled.
- You have altered the modal settings to your branding by adding a background, changing the text colour and the picker default image.
- Make sure you have the correct pickers marked as required. This is so users will pick an item for that position and not leave it blank.
- Each picker is the same size - width and height.
- You have edited the result screen with the call-to-action bars in line with your brand colours.
- If you have a competition and a data capture attached:
- All your communications (Registration, Winner/s, Everybody Else) are fully set up and ready to send.
- You have hyperlinked your T&C's to the opt-in-field, which is created in the data capture section of the settings tab.
- Ensure your Prizes and the awarding rules are set up correctly. If you have Live prize awarding as your award, make sure you enable this feature, you can see how to do so here.
- If you are using coupons, make sure the coupons created are set up correctly. Check the coupon limits are set, the copy for each screen is right and you have linked the appropriate coupons to your communications.
Then you're ready to go live!
Can I create different formations for different sports in one Picker?
Yes, you can. If you add a new formation, you have the option to change the formation background image to your desired sport and then add pickers to the position of your choice.
We recommend naming each of your formations to the appropriate sport to distinguish between them all.
Is it possible to have a bench/sub but they don't have to be selected by a user?
You can make some pickers optional by selecting the picker and then toggle off the Required option as seen here in Step 3(1e).
Can you use the Picker for other than sports?
Definitely! The Picker is a card that allows users select and assign items on an image. You can use the Picker and allow users to create their ultimate burger by giving them the opportunity to select the fillings within 2 buns. Get users to create their own cocktail by selecting their preferred mixes. There are no limitations to this card!
How do I bulk upload with images?
You will need to create a .CSV file with the names of the picking items, relevant tags associated to each picking item and then you will need to copy the image file name and paste it into a separate column next to the name and tags e.g. Lionel Messi, Striker, lionel_messi.png. You can download a template as seen here.
