Just like with other Synergy data, you will be able to pull up video clips of each statistical category to show to players and staff.

Team Selection Filter

Using many of the robust filters described below, access specific items for use with Filtration by selecting Team/Player/Games from the filter menu on the left. The Team filter has drop-down menus to allow for the selection of a season, league, division, team, and date range. Additional filters include offense, defense, and season type. Once your selections are made, click Apply.




To customize a report, use the filters located on the left-hand side of the application. Filters are dynamic and update the chart as they are selected.  Some filters contain additional sub-filters to refine your search even further. Charts will include only those shots which fit the filtered criteria and indicate the location of where each shot was taken on the court.

  • The filters section can be collapsed or expanded by selecting the vertical gray filters bar.  Select the Apply button to create the report.  
  • Select one or multiple values for each filter using the slider to view additional options.  Use the Select All feature to activate all of the filters in a section or in the entire filter.  Use the Reset option to clear the selections for an active filter.
Note: Filters selected in one application will carry over to the other if switching between Multi-Game Shot Chart and Play Call / Line Up Analysis / Filtration.

Color Radar and Comparison

The Color Radar and Compare feature allows users to compare statistics between selected sets of games.  This functionality will compare the Games Filter selection in the left-hand filter panel to the games selected in the Compare dropdown >Select Games window. To use this feature, click Compare then Select Games to begin. 


Select Games

When selected, the Games Comparison window will open. Here, select the game(s) you would like to include in the comparison then click Compare


Compare Dropdown

Choose from the following in the Compare dropdown:

  • Select Games: choose the games you would like to include in the comparison
  • Clear Selection: clear all comparison games selected

  • Show Comparison: display or hide the comparison row in the table below

Games Comparison

Choose from the following selections in the Games Comparison window:  

  • All: use to compare the selected games in the left filter to ALL of the games for the season.
  • Opposite: use to compare the selected games in the left filter to the unselected games (for instance, if you select Home in the Games filter, then it will compare to the Away Games in the Games Comparison window.)
  • Custom: used to select any games you choose to compare in the Games filter selection. (for example, you can select the last 10 in the Games filter and the last 5 in the Comparison filter to see the difference between those, or select only the games where you know a player did not play.)

Additionally, filter between Home|Away, Win|Loss, Conference|Non-Conference.

Note: The Comparison list will display the number of games selected for each row. 


Video and Rank


Choosing the Video option allows you to send clips directly to the Editor when selecting statistics associated with the video (indicated by a blue number).


When a clip set is selected, the Synergy Editor Parameters window will become active.  Here you are able to set the video quality you would like to send, limit the number of clips, and title the playlist.



Choosing the Rank option allows you to click on any number and bring up a Leaderboards page, similar to the Synergy Team Site Leaderboards page. It will either display Player Leaderboard or Team Leaderboard based on the filters selected in the reports. You'll notice that some columns, like PPP, become clickable after you select Rank so that you can bring up a leaderboard focused on any report statistic.

To save the Leaderboards page as a PDF, use the Save to PDF link. If you do make a change to the filters please make sure and hit Update below the Season dropdown to update your page.
