Capture The Flag (CTF) events are exciting and competitive gatherings, and hosting a successful CTF event involves careful planning and coordination of various aspects, from event details to participant management. We have set up many capabilities that will allow organizers to independently manage event settings and configurations, eliminating the need for extensive coordination with our technical delivery team.
Clicking the "Manage Events" button on the top right side will bring up the list of events. For every event, the CTF organizers have access to various management options under three main tabs:
Event Details, Event Settings and Participants:
Editing Event Details
Administrators and Event Managers have the ability to modify event details seamlessly:
They can customize the event title
Upload banners and logos
Update the event website
Adjust the event description
Add a prize pool with a list of prizes
This flexibility enables organizers to tailor the event to their specific needs and branding.
Editing Event Settings
Organizers control many settings to adapt the event structure and functionality to enhance the overall participant experience.
Modifying the team size
Managing event passwords
Toggling certificate generation
Hiding the scoreboard
Enabling analytics for participants
Pausing the event when necessary
Hosts can restrict event signups to specified domains. They can configure a list of permissible domains in the "Event Settings" tab, ensuring that only users with emails from these domains can sign up. This feature is essential for hosts who wish to maintain a controlled and secure environment for their events.
Event managers should navigate to "Event Settings" and then scroll to the "Whitelisted Domains" section. Here, they can:
Toggle whitelisting on or off.
List the domains to which they wish to restrict access.
Input multiple domains and include subdomains using a wildcard.
Event managers should navigate to "Event Settings" and then scroll to the "Certificate of Participation" section. They can perform the following actions:
Toggle the certificate generation on or off.
Specify the minimum points required to acquire the certificate.
Choose the naming sensitivity (Full Name or Usernames).
Players can now claim the certificate after reaching the needed points for it by navigating to the past events and selecting the certificate icon. After filling in their name (depending on the sensitivity set by the hosts), they can click to preview and download the digital copy:
Organizers can easily list teams and players in dedicated tabs, search for specific participant information, sort columns for better organization, export participant details in CSV format directly via the platform, and remove teams and players as needed. This comprehensive participation management ensures smooth event operation and organization.
