Prizes
« on: November 29, 2012, 05:38:03 PM »
Can we (or I...) have an option when creating prizes to assign a monetary value to a Non-monetary prize? My club sometimes will remove a certain amount from the prize pool and offer a seat plus a prize. This would keep my Leftover amount at 0.
Thanks

Why wouldn't you just create a fixed amount prize?

Can you be more specific?  What do you get with a "non-monetary" prize that you don't with a "fixed" (or otherwise) prize?

We have recently offered a seat with cash as our bottom prize. The cost of the seat is removed from the prizepool. When I choose "Non-monetary" The screens show the text I enter, however TD shows I have a leftover amount (the amount of the seat). This also affects what shows up on the summary sheet as well. The total prize pool (including the amount for the seat) isn't accurate

How do you do this?

Sounds like maybe what you need is the ability to enter a prize description "override".  In other words, you want to be able to create a prize that is either a fixed amount or a percentage of the pot, but instead of displaying the amount you'd rather display some sort of description for it ... right?

On the Prizes tab, you would see that it is a "Fixed" prize (for example), and its amount, but on the Game window you would see some text you've entered instead of the prize amount.

Does that sound right?

I'll add it to the infamous "to-do" list. :)
