What scoreboard or leaderboard types are there?

There are a number of different leaderboard and scoreboard types available on keepthescore.co. On this page we'll show you an example of each type with a short explanation and examples of situations where it can be useful.

If you are unsure what you should use, start with a click counter or a leaderboard. Please aware that you cannot change the type after a board has been created.

Click counters

This is the simplest type of scorekeeper. Use click counters when you need to count one or more things, for example people in a shop or room, repetitions, glasses of water drunk, tasks completed, etc.

Click counter

You can create between 1 and 100 counters to keep track of whatever you're counting. Click to see the above example.

Leaderboards

A leaderboard is a ranked list of players or teams. This means the list is sorted by scores, usually with the highest score at the top.

Use a leaderboard when you just care about who has the highest (or lowest score). This is probably the best multi-purpose score-keeper. Click here to create a leaderboard.

2 different leaderboard designs

You can choose between 2 different layouts:

  • the default is the table layout (top right) which shows the rank per player.
  • you can also choose a compact layout (top left) which is useful for large groups. You can switch between them to see which works best.

Scoreboards

A scoreboard contains a list of rounds per player. They are useful when you want to have a structured breakdown of how a score for a player (or team) came about, for instance when you have multiple disciplines in a competition.

Scoreboards are also a good choice if you want to track changes over time (e.g. who won at squash over a series of weeks).

2 different leaderboard designs

You can choose between 2 different layouts:

  • In the default desktop layout (top right) the player names are in columns and round names (which are optional) are included in the table.
  • In the mobile layout (top left) the player names are in rows and round names are displayed under the scoreboard.

Team leaderboards

Team leaderboards are for situations where you have teams composed of individuals, and you care about the overall team score as well as the score of the individuals.

🚀 Tips:

  • If you only have one player per team, you should use a leaderboard instead.
  • If you don't care about individual player scores and just care about the score of the team, you should use a leaderboard instead.
