Meet Manager – Lesson 16 - Backup and Restore (loading a template meet)
- Backup and Restore
Save time by restoring a “template meet”. This template
includes all of the meet setup information, scoring info and so
forth. However it does not include entries or results. You can
set up all of your meets prior to the season. Open a new file
for a new meet and after you go through the initial setup menu
of the meet use the Restore function under File (Select “Replace
currently open database in…) to place the template info
into the file. Select the file Swmm2BkupNEWMEET-01 and double
click that file and follow the prompts from there. All you will
need to do once you have restored the template file is update
the date of the meet and the opponent. You can the import your
team’s entries or roster and go from there.
Once you have this meet in your system you can use the Save
As feature to set up your remaining meets. Save as is found under
File. Select this feature and simply rename your meet. All you
will need to do from there is go in and change the meet date,
location, opponent and number of lanes.
For the lineup swap you should provide a hard copy of your
entries as well as the meet file and roster file in order to avoid
any questions about what your entries are.
Global changes under Setup/Options will allow you to change
the number of lanes for a meet, the heat order for all events
for a meet, and the entry fees for a meet.
If you are the home team be sure to import the other team’s
entries into the computer the night before the meet so you can
e mail them a backup of the meet for their own use for heat sheets,
entry lists, updated lane assignments for consolidated exhibition
