The following settings are specific to how we display Awards.

You can mix and match settings. You will see the changes when the team data reloads. If you make manual adjustments to awards on the Team Info screen, then you will need to reset those adjusted fields in order to see new awards that accumulate during the current season.

How many years of awards do you want us to retrieve for each team?

Which separator should we use for awards?

What is gatool?

gatool is a tool to provide FIRST Game Announcers with up to date information while announcing events during the FIRST Robotics season. As a web-based tool, it uses up-to-date information about the event to provide a comprehensive set of useful data to Game Announcers. It is designed to work on desktops, laptops and tablet devices. In a pinch, it can be used on a mobile phone.

If you are disinclined to read the documentation referenced below, we've made a short video so you can see it in action.

Watch an overview of gatool on YouTube.

You can get more detailed help by visiting our help page. We removed that content here to improve loading time at events.
