Trace iD FAQs

Learn how to set up your Trace iD

How do I add a moment to my Trace iD?

Adding a moment is super easy! (Any moment that has already been placed into a playlist can be added to a Trace iD → it can come from any Touch-chain as well as another player’s moments). All you need to do is:

  1. Click on the Star
  2. Add Spotlight
  3. Tag for context

That’s it! You’re done!

How do I change the order of the moments? 

How do I/Can I edit the length of the moment?

Trace iD was built based on feedback from several college coaches. Coaches want to see the build-up and what happens after the play. At time, this may go slightly longer than what you may think is ideal. Coaches viewing your Trace iD want to see context, and these longer moments offer that. Coaches also have the ability to click to the full game from each moment for additional context. Moment length is automated and cannot be edited.

What if a moment isn’t in any playlist and only exists in the full game?

We continue to work to improve automated moment accuracy. At times, TRACE-BOT will miss a moment. You may find that a moment is missing from your personalized playlist, but is available in one of the other game playlists. You can add moments from any playlist to your Trace iD.


Sometimes, moments are not available in any playlist. If you find that we missed a moment, please let us know at q@traceup.com. If you feel you absolutely must share your missing moment, you can share the moment’s url to supplement your Trace iD. At the beginning of the moment, click the share icon at the bottom of the screen and copy the time code share url. You can add the url to the notes section of your Trace iD.

Can I build this for my son/daughter?

College coaches want to hear directly from the prospective student-athlete.  They do not want to hear from Mom or Dad. Afterall, Mom and Dad are not the ones going to college to play. The more active a player is within the process, the more they showcase the necessary characteristics that college coaches want to have in their program, such as desire, confidence, determination, intelligence, etc.

We recommend that parents provide constructive feedback during this process while letting the student-athlete steer the ship.
