All reports created within your group are listed here. You can browse through all scouting reports you have access to. The main way to find a player’s scouting report is by using the search bar that allows to search for reports of relevant players and teams. The colour of the reporting button shows you the status of the report ranging from NOT STARTED to COMPLETED.

Player Detail Pages

All your subjective reports, ratings and notes will be synchronized by visual player dashboards on your personal account. This player detail page provides you a full overview of all individual evaluations and makes it even easier for you to manage your player insights and report statistics in a systematic way. Our analytics section complements your personal evaluations with automatically delivered standard statistics.

Personal Watchlists

This feature allows you to set up individual collections of players you want to follow and analyze using data built into your Scoutpad account. Watchlists provide a convenient way to "bookmark" and scroll through a number if interesting players that catch your eye, all to plan your next move in the market. Based on your plan, this feature may be restricted.

Shadow Teams

Create your own depth charts and structure your players in shadow teams. With an easy-to-use drag and drop system you are able to back-up your team depth, identify gaps in your team planning and plan your recruitment.

Customize your account

You can customize your Scoutpad account to fit your working style. Create your own custom indicators and pre-determine position-specific shortcuts as defaults. Build your own personal database by custom leagues and teams.

Group-Working in Scoutpad

Scoutpad also enables collaboration within your scouting teams. Work simultaneously on a shadow team or a watchlist and share your insights internally for discussion and decision support. The reports statistics of each scout are documented in a standardized form, which facilitates decision-making.

Where are my scouting reports stored?

Our main concern is that your data is safe and secure. Any data in your Scoutpad account is your own (not ours), your information is not accessed by anyone else or sold to anyone. For this purpose, all scouting reports are stored and encrypted in a personal database on servers in Germany by highest security standards. Each member can only access his own data, unless it’s actively shared with a group admin. We create daily backups of our redundant storage solution and never share your stored data.
