Which scoreboard should I use?

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.

Click counters

This is the simplest type of scorekeeper. You can create between 1 and 100 counters to keep track of whatever you're counting.

Use click counters when you need to count one or more things, for example people in a shop or room, repetitions in the gym, tasks completed, glasses of water drunk, etc. To start, click here .

Leaderboards

A leaderboard is a ranked list of players or teams.

You must choose between 2 different layouts:

  • the default is a table layout.
  • You can also choose a compact layout which is useful for large groups. You can switch between them to see which works best.

Use a leaderboard when you just care about who has the highest (or lowest score). This is probably the best multi-purpose score-keeper. To start, click here.

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.

You must choose between 2 different layouts:

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

Use a scoreboard if you care about the score per round, for example in a golf game. To start, click here.

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.

🚀 Pro tips

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

Use a team leaderboard if you care about the score of individual players, as well as the team score. To start, click here.
