The referees appear in the poules.

The automatic allocation of referees by Engarde offers lots of combinations to best fit the rules of your competition. For more information about the automatic allocation of referees you can look at the dedicated tutorial :  

With Engarde you can also allocate the referees manually (if the rule of your competition allow this) by editing the poule or the match ("Entry" button). Be careful, allocation of the referees in the official FIE competition has to be automatic.

Poules are ready, you just have to print the poule sheets. To do this, use the "Report" button, then choose Poule sheets in the menu. Choose to print all the poules.

It would be annoying to enter manually all the results of the poules for a tutorial. So you will simulate the score of the poules using the "Entry" button then "Automatic completion" in the menu

You get all the scores of the poules, the poules are now displayed with a green background as they are finished.
