Welcome to the Wizards Eventlink tutorial. We’ll be covering how to use this awesome new event management tool to schedule and run events. But before we get started, you’ll need to login!
In the past, players and retailers have used Organized Play Accounts to log in to Wizards Event Reporter. Wizards Eventlink uses Wizards Accounts. To create one, head to “myaccounts.wizards.com.” Then, link the two accounts using our form.
Once you have a Wizards Account, you're ready to use Wizards Eventlink!
On the main page, you’ll see a calendar view of this month’s events. From here, you can manage existing events and make new ones!
Click “Create Event” in the top right corner. Use the popup window to add details to your event. Some fields are required, such as name, date, format, and description. The more information you put in the better!
Hit save, and you’ve made your first event!
Let’s open that test event and see what running it looks like. Click “Open Event.” Add your players by entering their email address and hitting “Enter.” For players without Wizards Accounts, add guests. Note the code in the top left. Players with our Companion App can use it to join the event and report their results through their phone!
When you’re ready, click “Start Event.” If it’s a Draft, you can run a Draft timer. Otherwise, click “Begin Round 1.” Start the round timer. At the end of the round, report your results or watch as players report on their own! Then head to the next round. After the correct number of rounds, hit “End Event” and see the final standings.
Now you know how to both schedule and run events using Wizards Eventlink.
For one final tip, let’s head back to the main page. By clicking "Store Settings" in the top right, you can add staff to your account so they can manage events too. All you’ll need is the email attached to their Wizards Account!
We hope you enjoy the powerful new capabilities of Wizards Eventlink!
