Template - Advanced Features

This Article shows you some of the advanced template features in Nacsport, some features are only found in the professional versions of the software.


 Buttons template: Interface




Buttons template: Extra tools




Predefined and manual buttons

This tutorial shows you how to create and use both types of buttons (only categories) when creating a template.





Exclusion property between buttons in manual mode

Customise category buttons further with the exclusion feature when using manual mode. An action can be registered and at the same time, one or more actions can be excluded. Therefore, one or more actions cannot be registered while other actions are registered. Particularly useful for Possessions!



Time counter for manual buttons

Auto Sum Descriptors

This tutorial video shows you how to use the Nacsport Auto Sum Descriptors behaviour. With this tool, you can generate some free data to quickly see how often specific descriptors occur within each of your registers.



Inactive buttons

Buttons that add design elements to your template and won't add any data to your analysis.

Insert images as a background in a template to personalize and better organize your buttons.

Rating registers

Rate your registers from 1 to 5. With these ratings applied, it is possible to order or filter registers in the timeline for specific viewing. Users can even modify these ratings in the timeline.

Change how your buttons overlay each other for more powerful templates by sending them to the front or back layer according to your needs.

 Point action category

With the score categories, the program automatically provides the scoreboard of the event at the selected recording moment. It will appear in the timeline and in the register properties window.



Wild card button

This button allows you to start registering an action which has not been identified at first glance. Then, once identified, the user will be able to finish the action’s recording by pressing the chosen corresponding category button in the template.
Example: In a basketball game, a play is running but we are not sure which system is being used. We start registering with our wild card button and once we have recognized that system, we will press the category button for that system. By doing so, the beginning and end of the register will be more accurate.

( Available in Nacsport Elite )



Graphical descriptors

Graphical descriptors are descriptors with images, usually fields, pitch, courts, etc. They act like normal descriptors and they help to localise actions in different positions or places within the game. You can review this interactive output in the timeline environment too.

Player connections

This tool will help you collect data from the different combinations of players used during a game. Available on Nacsport Elite.
