Upgrade from TT 2018 to TT 2019

Is their a way to upgrade from one year to the next without having to re-enter all of last years settings?

The best way is to install the new year, then go to File -> File Upgrade Wizard.

Pay attention to the prompts, and you'll be able to wipe out all the pairings, picks, and players (hey look, alliteration!), but keep the scoring. You'll save the new file.

Open the new file & check your FTP settings (Tools -> FTP Manager).

You should be good to go.

I would like to do the same thing also.

I assume you mean to take the 2018 TT file and then upgraded it, right?

If so, I do you get the 2019 pairings into it?

If I start with the 2019 TT file, his way to bring the 2018 settings into it?

I normally set up the new TT file from scratch and it always takes a considerable amount of time to get everything set up.

Thanks

Do what I suggested. All your settings will be there with a blank bracket. Once the bracket is released, download it and build your website as normal.

Okay, I did as suggested and took my 2018.TT file and then upgraded it, then renamed it to new.TT. It seems like my settings were saved in the pairings/players were emptied.

Tomorrow when 2019.TT comes out, I'll download it. Normally, at that time I would open it in the TurboTourney but if I do that, new.TT would be closed.

Do I leave new.TT open and then somehow import the pairings from 2019.TT?

It would sure be nice to get this all put together quickly rather than spending most of Sunday night getting it set up!

Thanks!

OK, very easy now... At some point after the pairings are announced, Doug will upload them. All you'll need to do is open new.TT, then select Tournament - Pairings -> Download from web.

Save new.tt.

Then deploy your site (you can test your FTP settings by uploading Tournament News now). Save new.tt again.

And you're off and running.

Sam,

I had to tell you that it was much easier than I imagined. I'm kicking myself for not reaching out a few years ago.

Thanks again!
